  1. Run a task after full scan

    If there was a option to run a task after the full scan is completed, like switch off the computer would be awesome.

    • mac

      With Sophos Anti-Virus client for Mac version 9.6.2 a new app has appeared in the /Applications folder, namely "Remove Sophos Endpoint". This update was download from Sophos onto our on premise Sophos Management Server and is being distributed to our clients. Along with many Mac admins around the world I am amazed that Sophos have moved this app from the one that is usually found in the "/Library/Sophos Anti-Virus" folder into the main Applications folder, especially when it is listed alphabetically above the Sophos A-V client app. Deleting the app doesn't work as it reappears at the next update, unless…

        • 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.

          • Ability to filter Device View based on agent(s) deployed

            When logged in to Central > Endpoint Protection > Computers, there is no line visibility to show what Endpoint protection agents are actually installed on any of these machines, nor the ability to filter by them.

            For example, Central Web Gateway reports the installed agent version for CWG. CDE reports the encryption status of the machine (not installed / installed / encrypted).

            It would be really helpful to be able to see at a glance whether a named PC has Endpoint and/or Intercept installed on it. Better still would be the ability to filter by these in order to see…

            • Sophos Central - Web Gateway Policy - Notification should include the policy name

              Within the Notification Section in the Policy for Web Gateway on Central it does not automatically give the name of the Policy.

              Having the Name of the Policy or an Identifier will be useful for an IT Admin if a user is calling with and issue and they have several policies.

                    • Provide List of Web Control Categorized Sites

                      There is currently no list available to administrators of the sites that fall into a category. This makes identifying false positives a guessing game as to why a site is being blocked. Recently our organization blocked Personal and Dating sites, only to have our marketing team be unable to access legitimate sites like Facebook. The reactive nature of having to submit false positives after a block occurs erodes the confidence in the sophos product. If administrators had a way to vet some high profile sites before enabling a category block it would go a long way. Support has advised that…

                      • Bug in Sophos beta: Keylogger protection completely screws up the facebook chat.

                        Bug in Sophos beta: Keylogger protection completely screws up the facebook chat.

                        I finally found out what caused the facebook chat to ***** up so badly. For instance I couldn't type smileys in the first attempt because a keystroke wouldn't register, and if I mistyped something which I then tried to fix, the space cursor would do weird things, and in general it was a pain ********** to write messages. I first thought it was the browser so I updated to the latest Firefox beta. That didn't help. Then I restarted firefox in safe mode with all add-ons disabled, but…

                          • Make Sophos AV compatible with Microsoft Sysmon.

                            Make Sophos AV compatible with Microsoft Sysmon. Currently Sophos AV goes into deadlocks when Microsoft Sysmon is used with with image load option. Provide a fix that will not cause a deadlock, many other AV products do not have this issue.

                              • 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.

                                  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

                                    J'aimerais si possible pour la console SEC d'émettre des messages personnalisés (mail) visant à alerter lorsqu'un serveur nécessite de redémarrer pour appliquer une mise à jour majeure de sophos.

                                    Merci d'avance,

                                      Lately we noticed that the new gui does not use a progress bar when a scan has been started. Is it possible to let the new gui display a progress bar?
                                      It is unclear for us and end customers if something is happening …

                                      • Virus Data Update - More frequent please!

                                        As of today 29 May, my Sophos Virus Data is dated 2 May as the latest.
                                        This is a bit too outdated and it caused problem to login to some system that does not allow login if your AV signature is older than 14 days.

                                        May I suggest Sophos beef up its update frequency?

                                        • SAV for Linux Antivirus and HIPs policy

                                          Hello friends at Sophos. This is a feature request to add the following Sophos Anti-Virus for Linux settings to the available Anti-virus and HIPS policy settings:

                                          [root@819848-nimsa rack]# /opt/sophos-av/bin/savconfig query PreferFanotify
                                          true
                                          [root@819848-nimsa rack]# /opt/sophos-av/bin/savconfig query DisableFanotify
                                          false

                                          We just did some recent testing and it appears Fanotify is now working with a scan on write policy, so the next phase for us would be to have the ability to set agents to use Fanotify for scanning via an AV&HIPS policy to make management easier.
