  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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,…

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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).

  11. 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'.

  12. 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.

  13. HTML wrapper improvements

    Hi,

    I have a couple of feature request that should be consired implemented in the future with more and more customers embracing encryption on the fly.

    Feature request:

    1. Customisable HTMLWrapper template
    More customers is requesting changing the logo on the template for the HTML5 wrapper. I looked trough the code to see if I could modify this myself, but the images/logos was hardcoded and a would rather not change anything in the code for security reasons.

    2. The possibility to launch and decrypt the HTML5 wrapper from smartphones and tablets. I know this not a missing feature from sophos…

  15. Make available a simple, free utility for Mac users to decrypt SafeGuard files created on a Windows system.

    Make available a simple, free utility for Mac users to decrypt SafeGuard files created on a Windows system. If such a utility exists, inform the Sophos chat agents.

    Rather than have to set up a Windows VM for the express purpose of decrypting files, it would be awfully nice if there was a handy macOS utility one could use in place of the SGPortable.exe file that accompanies the media encrypted with the Windows SafeGuard products.

  16. SGN8: application based encryption: prevention of decryption

    With SGN8 and application based encryption users also have the possibilty to manually decrypt encrypted files or to create password protected HTML5 containers (which has the same effect) by using the context menue. One of the first questions customers ask us: can I prevent users from doing this?
    Actually I can't. So the feature request is: policy based elimination of the possibility to manually decrypt encrypted files to prevent data leakage.

  20. Provide SGPortable without File Encrytpion Modules DX or CS

    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)
