  1. USB drives scanning automatically.

    We need an option that allows USB drives to be automatically scanned upon insertion.

    • Deletion of Central Accounts

      If a customer or Partner decides to not go for Central he should be able to delete the whole Central Account. This is to ensure

      a) all his data is deleted permantly (data privacy law with cloud based systems in germany)
      b) he can setup a new trial with the same Account at a later point (to see if the gabs being closed in a later release of central)
      c.) from the partner point of view - it keeps Partner Dashboard structured and makes it more easy to manage and keeps it clean

        • Sophos for virtual environment

          According to me, it would make sense to build a kind of AV cluster for the product "Sophos for virtual environment", in which several SVM can be integrated. This AV cluster should have its own IP or DNS name. The Sophos Guest VM Agent is then to be sent to this address. In the event of a SVM failure, this is not noticed because another SVM takes over the function and can be ensured that the AV protection can be granted.

            • Sophos Central - View Devices by Installed Components

              So the only current way to see installed components is via Devices > Computers > Manage Endpoint Software but this view is very limited.

              Can a drop down be created to show say for example -

              >Endpoints with Endpoint Standard
              >Endpoints with Endpoint Advanced
              >Endpoints with Intercept X

              Hope this makes sense.

              • Expand MODEL and ID field in Peripheral Control Exemptions to show full length Device ID & Model

                In the 'Add Peripheral Exemptions' section, there should be an ability to re-size and make bigger (both the actual window and also each column) to ensure that we can see the exact models that we will be allowing. We have multiple pieces of hardware that have very similar Model and ID numbers but some are allowed and some are blocked for certain groups, and currently because the columns are so narrow, it is difficult to determine which is which.

                • Is it planned to merge Enterprise Console with Sophos Central in the future, to have all features of both, something like "hybrid cloud"

                  It would be nice to have the extended security of the cloud also on the On-Premises Version, but without the drawbacks like automated Client Version Upgrades and no Push-Client Installation possible...

                    Sophos Central Admin Console needs one of the following – SSO SAML integration with SAML Identity provider or at the minimum built-in password management capabilities for Super/Admin role users.
                    Without these features Sophos Central Admin Console is highly vulnerable, considering that unauthorized access to the Central Admin Console can lead to attacker disabling end-point protection or wiping data from end-user devices

                    • Central/Cloud Exclusions - Export-Import

                      Please add the functionality to export personalized exclusions for servers and users/clients and then the ability to re-import them on a different server (group) or users.
                      In order to facilitate batch export-import of long exclusion lists.

                      • Search for Peripheral Exemptions By User/Computer

                        When adding peripheral exemptions we need to be able to search for blocked devices based on the user name or computer name as per the on premise version. In large enterprises we have to scroll through a huge number of entries to find blocked devices before enabling them

                        • Possibility to activate Web Control only outside corporate LAN

                          Possibility to activate Web Control only outside corporate LAN would be useful to increase security for traveling users and avoid a second layer of redundant security on the LAN.

                              • Webgateway - Block things on Corporate LAN, but allow on other networks

                                Would like an option to have web gateway block certain types of high bandwidth traffic when on the corporate network, but allow it on other networks.

                                For example: Netflix. I don't want users to be watching netflix on their laptop when at the office, but not concerned when they are at a hotel or at home.

                                I have some update caches in my network. Could they could be turned into beacons so that sophos web gateway can tell what network it is on?

                                  • Setup Default Language for Endpoint clients

                                    Define the default language for the Sophos Endpoint client via Registry Setting (under HKLM) or config-file (ini-file) instead of using the Regional Settings set up by the Windows OS!

                                    It's annoying to fix this issue currently via replacing of the not needed language by the english ones!

                                    • Central console sorting and searching

                                      The console would be about 5,273,618 times more useful (roughly speaking) if the tables were sortable by all columns, not just by name.

                                      And almost equally useful would be to have search fields be able to search in the middles of strings (with or without wildcards), not just from the beginnings.

                                      • Expand ID field in Peripheral Control to show full length Device ID

                                        In Central Reports and Device Control Exemption Lists, currently the full length Device ID is not shown. Even on mouse over, not all ID Data is visible in Central. On the Endpoint, the full ID Data is visible on mouse-over.

                                        Some USB removable media have long Identical Device ID with only a difference at the end. Currently, we can not identify the device in Central.

                                        Please make the ID field expandable in Central and store all data from the Endpoint in Central so that exemptions can be set specificylly without trial and error.

                                        • Exclude Process in on-access-scans in Enterprise Console

                                          Under Antivirus and HIPS, On-Access-Scans its not possible to exclude processes. The Client configuration allowed that.
