    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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

                      • Central to support Bitlocker to go

                        There is an old entry for this but no new updates / comments. When will we likely see this so that customers can truly go Cloud and not rely on Safeguard for this function. Thanks

                          • 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!

                              • 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.

                                  • Enable User Switching?

                                    Didn't catch this lack of support of a basic Windows feature until launching our wide rollout to the hospital PCs. Disabling U.S. might be fine in enterprise large office environments where a cube-dweller uses their dedicated PC for an 8 hour shift. But your product strangles a feature that's ingrained in smaller medical / industrial / retail PC usage. Without U.S. ability, using SafeGuard means a nurse has to close their apps (usually an EMR, Radiology, Lab reports web-view, security system monitor, etc.) and log out completely every time she has to leave the station to bring a new mother…

                                      • Enable Destination Exclusions in Data Loss Prevention Policy Control Panel

                                        I want to be able to use the Data loss prevention feature in Sophos Cloud Enpoint Protection.

                                        Problem is, we are unable to use it as when enabled, it also blocks us uploading files to our internal intranet sites via IE. I can see no way of setting destination exclusions for the data loss prevention feature. Which basically truns a potentially amazing feature into an unusable technical tease.

                                        My suggestion is to add destination exclusions to the Data Loss Prenetion Policy. It should allow file transfer exclusions for internal addresses and allow manual destination exclusions. i.e. Blocks transfers via WeTransfer…

                                        • Data discovery

                                          The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the most important change in
                                          data privacy regulation. We need to answer the question "where is PII data" to protect. It would be great if we could identify where PII data is by using Sophos.

                                            What’s being requested here sounds like a data at rest feature, this is a lot different from what we have today, we don’t currently have any plan to add this type of feature in our products. We are looking at GDPR and the current DLP feature to see what we would need to do to be able to support the GDPR requirements from a data in motion aspect.
