  1. The ability to encrypt all connected drives (USB, etc...), not just the local drive.

    I need to be able to encrypt all USB drives that get connected to our systems. We have a lot of users who backup up to external drives, which could easily be stolen. Also need to encrypt any usb flash drives that are being used as well. This is a high priority.

  2. UEFI and Secure Boot compatible PCs/Operating Systems prevents Data Control from working

    Please increase development effort on the re-engineering of DLP so it does not use the AppInit_DLLs and therefore can have Secure Boot enabled.

    Microsoft post in May 2018:

    The AppInitDLLs mechanism is not a recommended approach for legitimate applications because it can lead to system deadlocks and performance problems.
    The AppInit
    DLLs mechanism is disabled by default when secure boot is enabled.
    Using AppInit_DLLs in a Windows 8 desktop app is a Windows desktop app certification failure.

  3. Rule Configuration

    When creating a rule you should be able to select who recieve the email alerts. Either as an individual or to a Distribution Group. Currently you either get all or nothing through the global settings, this should be added as a feature when defining the rule as to who recieves the alerts

  4. DLP Scan Clipboard and Email

    It would be great if DLP could scan the clipboard, and in and outbound email for text matching the bank details profile.

    At the moment it only scans files containing card data, I would like to see it cover a more broad number of scenarios.

    We have found that users would be more likely to write or copy card details into the body of an email, then they are to go to the lengths of creating a file, adding the details, saving the file, and emailing it.

    Thanks

  5. Like to see incorporated

    SafeGuard Portable needs to have the additional option to "permanently" decrypt files in addition to the "one way" feature which re-encrypts the file after exiting the program.
    Not having this feature is a real annoyance especially files on the hard drive. Currently have to take several steps in addition after "decrypting" a file(s) by either copying/moving to another directory or re-naming the current directory. I know that I'm not the only one who has made this request to see this feature incorporated. McAfee does the same thing & the fact both McAfee & SafeGuard fail to mention or warn users…

  6. Turn on SGMTrace-Logging via button

    The SGMTrace-Logging could be "acitivated" and "deactivated" (= changing Minimumtracelevel from 5a to 0 and back) via buttons in the about-box of SGN.

  7. Allow Wildcards in Ignored applications (General Settings->File Encryption)

    Allow wildcards in Ignored applications, instead of having to enter the literal path for excluded applications. In our case we have to include java for preformance reasons, and there are dozens of versions, with new versions being added regurarly, wich requires inervention for every new version. Allowing wildcards would make life allot easyer.

  8. Allow SafeGuard Management Center to reset/bypass a locked device

    We do not use POA, and are unable to use the Sophos credential provider due to incompatibility with other applications. We use the secondary SafeGuard login, which occurs after logging in with the Windows Credential provider. Currently the only way to reset a locked device is to log in using the credential provider. There should be an option in the Management Center to reset the locked state, or some other option other than having to re-enable the Sophos credential provider, use it once, and disable it again (which can be time consuming if managed through GPOs, because it requires multiple…

  10. Microsoft Edge

    Support Microsoft Edge as a Browser Destination for DLP. This is the default browser for Windows 10, and it cannot be removed.

    The browser destination features of DLP are severely limited without this.

  11. Improve compatibility of Outlook Plug-in and location based file encryption

    When the plug-in is enabled in SafeGuard, Outlook is excluded from the encryption/decryption processes. This does not work well with location based file encryption as an item opened by Outlook that is encrypted is unreadable. This behavior can be triggered a few ways:
    1) Items saved by Outlook are then modified by a different program.
    2) Items saved by Outlook are moved into or within a location defined in scope of encryption policies.
    3) Items saved by other programs are opened by Outlook.
    4) A data compliance requirement to encrypt all files regardless of type (no compliance group would say,…

  13. DFS FQDN Path support

    Please add the Filterdriver Support for Domain-DFS Namespaces with FQDN Access in the Windows Explorer in SGN 8.10, in 8.00.5 it already works.
    If the user access the share with FQDN, it is able to DECRYPT the data in 8.10, because the Filterdriver obviously does not interpret FQDN-Paths.
    In 8.00.5 it was possible to define FQDN Paths both in SGMC and in the Windows Explorer on Client Side.

    Example:
    \domain.fqdn\dfs\share --> Does not work in SGN 8.10
    \domain\dfs\share --> works in SGN 8.10

  14. Safeguard Enterprise Server "System Locale" Problem

    When any user installs server operating system with a System Locale of Turkey on Windows OS Install first screen, Active Directory Synchronization on SGN Console not working properly.

    For example of an ad domain venividivici.intra,

    On first install - SGN Console Syncs the domain with a name of VENİVİDİVİCİ.İNTRA with upper case letter of "i" and none of windows services knows that letter on ad, sql etc.
    After we change System Locale from Control Panel to United Kingdom - SGN cannot ever sync with any ad domain
    After reinstallation of Server OS with a System Locale of United Kingdom, then…

  15. Source Path

    Under our old Sophos system, the source path would show on the Data Loss Prevention Report. We switched to Sophos Central and now I am being told that option is no longer available. The source path is very useful to have on the report and Executive Management used it frequently. We need to have the option to add the source path to the report.

  16. Report for FileBase Encryption

    Wish the report function in SGN server can retrieved the total amount (how many of them) and the details of the folders/files (what folder/file names) under each filebase encryption policy. It will be good for reporting and presentable to clients.

  17. Filestream Google

    Although Google Drive Encryption files is supported by Sophos, FileStream it is not. It would liberate resources from computer as it is not mandatory to have files downloaded. As Safe Guard 8.1 encrypts files in local it doesn't work with this cloud resource.
    Dropbox has a similar resource.

  20. virtualbox

    Please add back support for cliënt installations on Virtualization platforms, as of now customers with a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure are unable to use Safeguard v8.1, ESX(i) and Hyper-V are not supported. I use Virtualbox to test set-ups and give demonstrations.

    https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/132189
    Virtualization platform support.
    The SafeGuard Client only supports VMware Workstation and Player as virtualization platform. All other platforms like VMware ESX/ESXi Server, Microsoft Virtual PC, Microsoft Hyper-V are not supported. VirtualBox is incompatible with SafeGuard 8.1 and might cause BSODs (IRQLNOTLESSOREQUAL).
