  1. 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.

      • encrypt zip file

        Sophos DLP can not block .zip files with password.
        Blocking works only for passwords placed directly on files, such as .xls or .doc, but if the file is without a password and the password is put into compression, the tool can not recognize and lock the file.
        With this it is possible to leak information, causing a large breach in data security.

        • Ability to setup reports in the GUI of Safeguard Enterprise

          As far as I've researched there isn't any way of producing reports on Safeguard Enterprise and the client computers outside of using the SQL Management Studio with SQL scripts. Especially if the encryption had failed on a laptop or finding out about suspicious activity with a user having multiple failed logons, I feel having no ability to automatically find out this information can feel like a problem on a security end.

          Therefore, I would like to suggest the ability to set up some granular reporting on the GUI side for reporting events of interest and also setup email on a…

          • 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.

            • 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 (IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL).

              • 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.

                • Move Recovery Button

                  Please move the recovery button a bit further from the OK button. UX principles would suggest that such a radically different function should not be close enough to the OK button such that an accidental click renders the system in a temporarily unusable state. OK/Clear/Recovery/Restart or something like that would be better to give a buffer for those of us with fat fingers and itchy mouse triggers.

                  • 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.

                      Providing SGPortable without Data Exchange or Cloud Storage would enable 3rd Party Users to read encrypted files provided by SGN-Users without using Outlook-Plugin (in addition to the ideas of SyncEnc Appication Wildcards and Keygeneration with passphrase in SGN MC)

                        • SGN File Encryption: Generate Keys with Passphrase in Management Center

                          To generate Keys with passphrase it is necessary to create them on a client an sync them into the management before using them in a policy.
                          It would be easier and ore intuitive for admins to create them with passphrase in the management center.

                            Lets Suppose i have configured the PPTP VPN in User's machine and he knows the Username and Password of the VPN. he can share to some one and access the network outside from the office so it can be data threat in PPTP VPN. So i request please do something about this security.

                                • 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…

                                  • 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…

                                    • 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.
