Sophos iView

How can we improve Sophos iView reporting?

  1. Reporting about Uncategorized, invalid certificate sites, other anomalies.

    I have been trying to get Sophos to focus on the problem of uncategorized sites, using multiple posts or replies o multiple products, including these entries

    XG firewall:
    Category None -- Inadequate management tools, misconfigured default

    Sophos Home
    What about "Web Ads" and "Uncategorized"

    UTM 9
    SSL scanning implementation / Best practise (errorhandling....)

    Since Sophos clearly wants to build its own reputation database, they should be looking to auto-submit uncategorized URLs automatically (with client site consent), as well as providing a way to submit a list of sites for categorization. Taking ideas from the TrustedSite.org website user interface would be…

    • Pull Active Directory user data to improve report granularity

      In environments where iView is linked to AD, use user attributes to create custom report groupings based on department, group memberships etc and pull user's Full Names etc

        • VMware Tools or similar integration

          Integration of VMware Tools or similar like on Sophos UTM software appliance for shutting down the virtual iView machine normally when shutting down the virtualization host in case of power loss or for maintenance purpose.

          Actually the virtual machine would be powered off only and this could lead to data loss or to a corrupted machine which couldn't be started any more.

          • Ability to upload custom SSL Certificate

            This idea doesn't require much explanation.
            It should be possible to use your Company Certificate on Sophos iView instead of the Appliance Certificate.

            Other Sophos Appliances like Firewalls and SFM do currently support this however Sophos iView still does not support this.

            We really want this feature and I am sure many companies would welcome this addition from a security standpoint

            • Allow custom logo on generated reports.

              Much like the XG and SG firewall it would be very nice to be able to customize the logo on PDF reports that are generated automatically on their schedule.

              • Report Exporting Improvement iView 2

                By default the exporting of reports should export all reports generated and not just the current page.

                BACKGROUND: Currently exporting reports does not export the reports that you have generated and it only exports the reports on the current page.

                To allow the export of all reports requires you enable an pointless option located in an unintuitive location [System --> Configuration --> Data Management --> Export to Excel Parameters Customisation].

                Further discussions can be seen in support case [#6395244]

                    • Historical Data Reports Filtering

                      We need the feature to be able to view and filter historical data base on time range for bandwidth usage, user reports, web filter, application and other critical information.

                      Right now, most of these features can be see but only for the day. We need a Historical Data that can be pulled out regardless of time range.

                      • Please create Amazon AWS AMI for iView

                        Please create a way to use iView in AWS. It is imperative for UTMs in AWS as we are not going to send syslog data over the internet

                        • Include blocked site information in the custom user report

                          The custom user report only includes allowed sites, we would expect this to include all the web activity for a user.
                          Currently you have to combine information from different views and for blocked information you have to filter by the user.

                          • Be able to download more than 200 records in excel.

                            When downloading reports there appears to be a limit of 200 records per chart. Therefore if you had 600 records you would have to download each page then merge the spread sheets after to create a single document. If using "Cyberoam-iView – Open Source" when downloading into excel it has all 600 records regardless of how many records are showing on the page.

                            • Implement "Time spent on Website" within iView like the UTM does

                              The UTM is able to provide a report on how much time is spent on a website. Although this is not 100% accurate, it does help "paint a picture".

                                • Use the hostname instead of the IP & Device type as the deviceid.

                                  A device can communicate from different IPs and this causes iView to think it is a new device. SUM uses the hostname which works perfectly.

                                  • Add support for ESA and WSA appliances (and SGN and SEC) into iView

                                    Sophos is forever being beaten up because of poor ability to run custom reports. iView is probably the easiest answer to this. It has already been configured for function with the UTM, please can this also happen to support SEC, SGN, ESA and WSA appliances? Maybe even SMC and PureMessage too...

                                    • ability to choose a time period

                                      The iView can only show results for e.g. web protection for a whole day. It's not possible to choose a time frame like in the Sophos Web Appliance to see what a user is doing during a specified time period like the lunch break (https://blogs.sophos.com/2015/03/06/sophos-web-appliance-v4-available-end-of-march/).

                                        As in UTM it should be possible to anonymize User data and have a Counter check functionality to deanonymize personal data in statistics.

                                        • Network usage report

                                          Can we do report like Network usage report in UTM,
                                          and show user names in this report?
                                          WebProtection count only web traffic, but there is a lot of another non-web traffic.

                                          Reason: Network usage report used for internal billing of Internet usage
