    • 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).

      • revoke

        The Automatic Revoke BITLOCKER Key feature of Sophos needs to be a configurable setting
        at the enterprise and estate levels or via the Encryption Policy. Automatically revoking a valid key requires that the PC be off-line for the "former" valid key to be used. If the PC is on-line and the key is read, that key immediately become invalid - even if the PC is shutdown shortly. We need to be able to read a key and use it. We need the option to revoke or not. I recommend a read option and a revoke option.

        Our Sophos Managers are…

            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.

            • 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.

                • Complete AD sync for safeguard management center

                  In the SafeGuard management center you allow for AD sync, but that sync does not resolve itself when password changes are made. Currently the only solution is to demote and re-promote manually each security officer. If the AD sync could function as a task properly and sync the password changes in an almost LDAP type situation, that would be optimal.

                  • Safeguard HTML Wrapper Branding

                    Add the ability to brand the HTML wrapper file when using the option to 'create password protected file'.

                    At least being able to add/change a company logo to replace the default Sophos logo maybe with 'powered by Sophos Safeguard' or similar. This would give recipients more 'confidence' that the attached HTML file was genuinely from the user at their company and the attachment hasn't been 'compromised'.

                    • 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…

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • MAC Binding in PPTP VPN

                                        I have configured PPTP vpn in Sophos but PPTP vpn is not secured other than SSL VPN but SSL VPN Works very Slow. So my concern is i want to MAC Binding in PPTP VPN.
                                        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.
