  1. URGENT - Prevent SGN to Change AD Password

    When a network user logon to a computer with SGN installed and the user´s password is expired, SGN requests a password change.

    SGN must have a way to disable this feature, preventing request a new password to network users when company uses a external Password Manager.

    • DLP for Mac

      According to support, DPL policies do not work on Macs. I tested it and unfortunately, they are correct. This is a great feature and needs to be rolled out to Macs.

      • Hotfix/patch version of SafeGuard client to report back to console

        Currently if you install a patch/hotfix onto a client it will report this correctly in Add/Remove (8.00.4.8) but this will NOT be reported by the local client (About Sophos SafeGuard - 8.00.0.251) and will not be reported back to the console either (also reports 8.00.0.251). In an Enterprise environment this gives you no easy way of knowing the installing client version (including any hotffix/patch) on each machine.

        Please make the client report correctly on the About Sophos SafeGuard splashscreen but more importantly report this back to the server/console. I would like to produce a report on what clients need updating…

          • Application Based File Encryption: Generic corruption message for encrypted files

            For application based file encryption, if a user manually encrypts a file that is not specified within the policy as a designated file type that is automatically encrypted, the user can not view the encrypted data. Sophos GES informed me that the product is designed to function this way, which makes no sense. I recommend giving the user ability to not only encrypt any file they choose, but also be able to open/read the file. My second complaint is that if the file is encrypted but not a designated file type within the policy, the user will get a generic…

            • email for dlp viloations

              For each DLP policy I would like the ability to configure who to send emails for policy alerts. Right now all alerts go to the Super Admins who often times are not the people responsible for following up on the DLP alerts

                • Raise alert in Central when BitLocker is suspended

                  As an admin, I want to see an alert in Central if BitLocker encryption is suspended on a machine managed by Central Device encryption. The alert should automatically get cleared again as soon as encryption is un-suspended.

                  • SafeGuard Enterprise - Mail notification

                    I noticed that there are no e-mail notifications. It would be very important to have log notifications in real time like:
                    3545 Read errors on KSA
                    3547 Warning: NTFS boot sector backup is missing on the volume% 1.
                    1018 Unauthorized attempt to uninstall SafeGuard Enterprise

                      • Central to support Bitlocker to go

                        There is an old entry for this but no new updates / comments. When will we likely see this so that customers can truly go Cloud and not rely on Safeguard for this function. Thanks

                              • Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to decrypt a drive from Central Management

                                Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to decrypt a drive from Central Management

                                1. It would be really convenient. It could be done as a popup/checkbox choice if we are removing the encryption software from an endpoint (or multiple endpoints with a a set of confirmation steps for decrypting).

                                In an MSP environment, MSP customers often leave and MSPs want the ability to put things back into a state where they were before they got there. Another reason to add this feature .

                                • Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to select which partitions on Windows and Mac get encrypted

                                  Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to select which partitions on Windows and Mac devices alike so that all drives are not always encrypted be default.

                                  On Windows machines, some come from the factory woth recovery partition software. Encrypting these partitions creates a problem for using the recovery options from a post BIOS boot.

                                  On Macs, some devices may have multiple partitions for a variety of reasons. Decrypting them is not done automatically when the primary is decrypted and requires it be a manual process.

                                  Giving the choice adds to the flexibility and benefit of feature flexibility

                                    • Ability to change the Windows 7 lock screen account picture

                                      Currently in Safeguard Management Center there are options available to change the background and logon image used at the POA, but no options to change the Windows account picture to say something more personalised for a company for example and it the program overrides whatever Windows 7 has it currently set to. It would be a nice touch if it was possible to have this ability added into Safeguard in some way, if possible please.

                                      • Allow Mass Verification of Key Presence in SGN Database

                                        There should be a process, field, alert, literally ANYTHING that allows us to check, en masse, the presence of a valid recovery key. The only way to make sure that a valid key exists is to check the machines manually.

                                        We have had issues with Surfaces, where the key becomes corrupted or lost or something, and we don't realize there is a problem until we have to actually do a recovery.

                                        Other products have an alert or something that says when a client is in a state that isn't optimal. SGN does not. It should be easy to query the…

                                          Sophos Central - Manage Endpoint Software: Add ability to remove any/all Sophos software from a computer from the Central Management Console.

                                          This should include just Central Encryption Components as well.

                                          Many MSPs want the ability to remove their management for their customers and this would include all traces or a managed software solution. This is a very common request among MSPs and their automation facilities and tools that they use to manage and deploy software to customer computers.
