  1. Medical School Personal Statement

    Studying in high school, college, or university can become a true challenge for many young people. They have to cope with lots of different assignments, find time for entertainments, and some even have to work part-time. However, all these challenges pale in comparison with being a nursing student. A degree of complexity increases by several times, and writing a research paper on nursing is like completing a dissertation chapter.
    Some students have enough time to write all assignments. Others desperately need professional assistance since they cannot cope with nursing essay writing themselves. If you are one of such students who…

  4. Exception of a DLP case

    If you have a key file that is not read directly via Explorer, it is simply blocked and there is no possibility of including it in the exceptions unless you deactivate the DLP on the client concerned. Of course, this is a bit of a hassle for companies.
    We discovered the problem at Starmoney. A file is created there, without which it is not possible to open Starmoney. Bad if this is then blocked by the DLP.
    According to the support, I should then deactivate the DLP and work in Starmoney and then reactivate it, which of course is not…

  5. Ability to block file transfer via gmail with DLP - ( Data loss prevention ) feature

In That way when a user will attach such a file in order to transfer it to any mail destination Sophos will worn and ask permission to do it or just block it without any question.

  6. Rule Configuration

    When creating a rule you should be able to select who recieve the email alerts. Either as an individual or to a Distribution Group. Currently you either get all or nothing through the global settings, this should be added as a feature when defining the rule as to who recieves the alerts

  7. DLP Scan Clipboard and Email

    It would be great if DLP could scan the clipboard, and in and outbound email for text matching the bank details profile.

    At the moment it only scans files containing card data, I would like to see it cover a more broad number of scenarios.

    We have found that users would be more likely to write or copy card details into the body of an email, then they are to go to the lengths of creating a file, adding the details, saving the file, and emailing it.

    Thanks

  8. UEFI and Secure Boot compatible PCs/Operating Systems prevents Data Control from working

    Please increase development effort on the re-engineering of DLP so it does not use the AppInit_DLLs and therefore can have Secure Boot enabled.

    Microsoft post in May 2018:

    The AppInitDLLs mechanism is not a recommended approach for legitimate applications because it can lead to system deadlocks and performance problems.
    The AppInit
    DLLs mechanism is disabled by default when secure boot is enabled.
    Using AppInit_DLLs in a Windows 8 desktop app is a Windows desktop app certification failure.

  9. Safeguard Enterprise Server "System Locale" Problem

    When any user installs server operating system with a System Locale of Turkey on Windows OS Install first screen, Active Directory Synchronization on SGN Console not working properly.

    For example of an ad domain venividivici.intra,

    On first install - SGN Console Syncs the domain with a name of VENİVİDİVİCİ.İNTRA with upper case letter of "i" and none of windows services knows that letter on ad, sql etc.
    After we change System Locale from Control Panel to United Kingdom - SGN cannot ever sync with any ad domain
    After reinstallation of Server OS with a System Locale of United Kingdom, then…

  10. Source Path

    Under our old Sophos system, the source path would show on the Data Loss Prevention Report. We switched to Sophos Central and now I am being told that option is no longer available. The source path is very useful to have on the report and Executive Management used it frequently. We need to have the option to add the source path to the report.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Grandular Monitoring of Dropbox

    I need to be able to monitor what files are being uploaded into dropbox.

    This would just need to be the same type of log files you get from files being moved to a USB drive. The file path and name.

  19. 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
