  1. Support for Institutional Recovery Key on macOS

    Institutional recovery keys are most often used to have one common recovery key so that Administrators can unlock all managed encrypted systems within the whole company with that recovery key.

  4. Sophos Enterprise client

    Sophos Enterprise client should display client agent status regards to the disk encryption status. End user should be able to confirm endpoint encryption status.
    I’m fully aware about the SGNState tool.

    Thank you.

  6. Bitlocker GPO/Policy-RSOP-Tool

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\BitLocker Drive Encryption

    It is possible, that SafeGuard (or Central) Policies collide with Bitlocker GPO without recognizing it.
    It might be confusing to separate SGN local cache values with Bitlocker registry-entries.

    A simple Client tool should match HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\FVE with die LC-Policies and create a *.xml into %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Utimaco\SafeGuard Enterprise\

    In this folder the log is automatically gathered by the SDU without changing and can be used even on older SG-versions.

    The shortly described values should be matched as a simple "match"/"mismatch"/"not configured" to easily see possible configuration errors.

    The tool is independent from the client itself and can…

  7. User Groups across DomainTree

    SGN should support Groups with AD-objects from different Domains within a Tree (e.g. Groups with members from userdomainA.company.net and userdomainB.company.net)

  9. skylake and newer windows 7 POA

    The POA screen needs to be improved in V8 to fully support tokens (2 factor) and other usb devices.

    According to articale 123749:
    USB devices such as smart cards, tokens, and possibly some external human interface devices (HIDs) do not work on SafeGuard Device Encryption POA. These devices interact with the Extensible Host Controller Interface (XHCI), which is not planned to be supported by Sophos SafeGuard Device Encryption.

    This is simply unacceptable as bitlocker does not support hardware 2 factor either. This needs to be revisited.

  10. 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…

  11. Trigger a PIN reset for a specific machine from the SafeGuard Management Center

    On-premise SafeGuard Enterprise customers have been requesting the ability to remotely trigger a PIN reset for specific machines.

    A context menu item via right-clicking a Machine Object in the Management Center triggering a PIN reset the next time the SafeGuard client syncs would be the best implementation for this feature.

  12. SGN - Message "old password"

    The Message to enter the old password (usually after resetting the PW by an AD-Admin) often confuses users and admins. The procedure is completly described in KBA 112239, but has to be delivered by the support.

    The message could be improved by directly mentioning or referring to KBA 112239. This could help admins and users to find the solution without calling any support

  13. 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.

  14. Implement prominent messages for the use of non-primary Bitlocker Protectors

    In case of an incorrect TPM-initialization, clients try to use the fallback protector.
    It is possible to use "password" as fallback and a GPO that encrypts the machine without TPM.

    In this scenario users will use a non-TPM protected machine without knowing (average users see no difference between pin an numeric-4-letter-password).

    Clients should inform the user or the SO via Management Center, that Fallback Protector is used and primary Protector wasn't used at all.

    Awaiting Feedback  ·  Robert Zeh responded

    In Central Device Encryption we create an alert if the TPM cannot be initialized properly and do not automatically fallback from TPM + PIN to e.g. a password protector. The automatic fallback happens only if the TPM is not enabled in the BIOS and therefore we don’t know that there is a TPM existing. Nowadays almost all systems come with the TPM enabled in the BIOS.

  15. 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

  16. Bitlocker - Capture Encryption Start Event - 3503

    When SafeGuard manages a Bitlocker full disk encryption device, event code 3503 - Sector-based initial encryption of drive 'X:' started" should be captured in the Event log of the Safeguard Management console.

  18. Remove old clients from Management Center via GUI

    Customer is asking for the possibility to remove old clients via a GUI window "en bloc" - means that user should get a window with criterias (like last server contact date) to pre-select shown clients and the her should be able to tick mark all clients that should get removed from database.

  20. Include support for preselecting a domain at the Credential Provider

    Requested by Customer:
    When an environment is made up of two domains with a federation trust, there is no way to preselect a domain, or force an alias, at the SafeGuard Credential Provider, but at the Windows provider, this can be controlled by a GPO.
    Ex. There is a trust between domain 1 and domain 2, machines in both domains are presented with their logon domain as "domain" at the provider and have SSO to both domain 1& 2 for applications etc. The names domain 1 & 2 are hidden from the end-user.
