    • 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.

        • 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…

              • 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…

                  • 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.

                      • Reflexion - Notify domain owner when email address placed on BadMail list

                        Recently, one of my outgoing email addresses was placed on your Badmail list. I didn't know for two days so I had two days of email that was supposed to go to my customers that failed and won't be retried. Being notified that it was placed on the Badmail list would be much appreciated!

                              Sophos Enterprise client should display client agent status regards to the disk encryption status. End user should be able to confirm endpoint encryption status.
                              I’m fully aware about the SGNState tool.

                              Thank you.

                                • Allow delegation of exporting Bitlocker recovery keys

                                  Exporting Bitlocker recovery keys is currently being restricted to Master Security Officers only. This is insufficient for daily business in large organizations. MSO role should be restricted to very small group of people. If this small group of people is unavailable, then nobody is able to recover a Bitlocker client. For this reason the feature of exporting Bitlocker recovery keys should be delegable to "normal" Security Officers.

                                  Alternately there should be an option to export recovery keys by a script.

                                    • Bitlocker GPO/Policy-RSOP-Tool

                                      Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\BitLocker Drive Encryption

                                      It is possible, that SafeGuard (or Central) Policies collide with Bitlocker GPO without recognizing it.
                                      It might be confusing to separate SGN local cache values with Bitlocker registry-entries.

                                      A simple Client tool should match HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\FVE with die LC-Policies and create a *.xml into %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Utimaco\SafeGuard Enterprise\

                                      In this folder the log is automatically gathered by the SDU without changing and can be used even on older SG-versions.

                                      The shortly described values should be matched as a simple "match"/"mismatch"/"not configured" to easily see possible configuration errors.

                                      The tool is independent from the client itself and can…

                                      • Remotely trigger a PIN reset from the Central Dashboard for machines using encryption.

                                        Having the ability to force a user to change their PIN via a request from the Central dashboard would be useful. We've gotten a number of requests for the ability to do this from sysadmins.

                                        • Define Password Complexity from Central

                                          Please add some more Bitlocker configuration possibilities, like the option to configure the password complexity, as described here:

                                            This is on the backlog for a future release.
                                            We can’t control the GPO settings for the password complexity which means that if the Admin overrides password rules via central GPO settings then we can’t enforce the Central Device Encryption password rules on the endpoint. However, if there are no password rules defined via GPO, the Central Device Encryption password rules will apply.
