  1. Safeguard 8 Managed Client Enhancement request for SafeGuard to disallow “suspension” of BitLocker on client.

    Safeguard 8 Managed Client Enhancement request for SafeGuard to disallow “suspension” of BitLocker on client.

    the FDE capability are primarily governed by the following requirements:

    ·
    Maintain or improve existing security posture of the Windows 7 platform

    ·
    Ensure end users cannot suspend/remove installed security controls

    As our current FDE solution in the Windows 7 environment prevents end users from suspending/removing full disk encryption provided by Sophos Safeguard 7.x, we are looking to preserve the same level of security in
    our upcoming Windows 10 platform

  5. Edit SafeGuard Management Console Computer Entries for Mac

    When Macs get imported into the SafeGuard Console it takes the Netbios name from (System Preferences -> Network -> Advanced -> WINS -> NetBIOS). Macs often get named through the sharing preference (System Preferences -> Sharing) and often the names will differ especially when using dongle adapters for ethernet. You can set the name by editing /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.smb.server.

    Even after editing that file, at times, computers get imported into the SafeGuard console and cannot be edited. If they're on VPN while accepting the offer then the name might come in as "asa-vpn-133-455" or "dhcp-144-678". These names cannot be edited and it…

  6. logging

    We need more logging for activities within the console and in the web help desk. It is ludicrous that this has to be requested.

    Need a log event for when a machine's computer key is recovered. This is a must have as this is needed to maintain non-repudiation. this is Security 101 here guys.

  7. SGN - blocking installation of unwanted modules

    One of our customer would like to be able to block the installation of modules which have not been purchased.

    By default, the xml licence file does contain some default values, and it looks like the installation executable does not check the licence count, as the only count is done at the beginning of Safeguard Management Center.

    Customer would like to make sure that it would not be possible to install non purchased modules.

  8. Currently Single Sign-on caches the Windows credentials indefinitely.

    If a user logs into a machine with Single Sign-on enabled, SafeGuard's POA caches the credentials of the user and does not clear them. This leads to the possibility that a user could log into POA, walk away to get coffee, and, if delayed, could have a different user log into Windows with their cached credentials. This would allow the secondary user access to network and local resources that could be blocked normally including sensitive/private/classified data.

  9. Support Apple Open Directory with SGN

    OSX client based on Apple Open Directory should be fully manageable with the SGN Management Center.
    FileVault2 and File Encryption policy should be fully applicable for those kinds of objects (machines and users).
    Use cases like re-image of client or re-name of user should be part of implementation.

  10. SafeGuard Watchdog should also monitor status of SGNAuthService and reset it if it hangs

    SafeGuard Watchdog should also monitor status of SGNAuthService and reset it if it hangs. Customers provide feedback that if the SG Credential Provider will not show up when trying to login a manual restart of SGNAuthService will help.
    So why not using our own watchdog to get rid of this issue?

  13. Display failed login attempts after SG CP authentication

    After user authenticates through SG CP, a Windows GPO can trigger a display of the last successful and unsuccessful login attempts. The SG CP shows the successful attempts correct, but has a count of zero for correct logins. Displaying this information works correct when Windows CP is used. The information is stored in the OS but the SG CP doesn't appear to pull the failed amount correct.
