  1. 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.

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. revoke

    The Automatic Revoke BITLOCKER Key feature of Sophos needs to be a configurable setting
    at the enterprise and estate levels or via the Encryption Policy. Automatically revoking a valid key requires that the PC be off-line for the "former" valid key to be used. If the PC is on-line and the key is read, that key immediately become invalid - even if the PC is shutdown shortly. We need to be able to read a key and use it. We need the option to revoke or not. I recommend a read option and a revoke option.

    Our Sophos Managers are…

  8. 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'.

  9. Ability to setup reports in the GUI of Safeguard Enterprise

    As far as I've researched there isn't any way of producing reports on Safeguard Enterprise and the client computers outside of using the SQL Management Studio with SQL scripts. Especially if the encryption had failed on a laptop or finding out about suspicious activity with a user having multiple failed logons, I feel having no ability to automatically find out this information can feel like a problem on a security end.

    Therefore, I would like to suggest the ability to set up some granular reporting on the GUI side for reporting events of interest and also setup email on a…

  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.

  15. 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.

  16. email for dlp viloations

  17. Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to decrypt a drive from Central Management

    Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to decrypt a drive from Central Management

    1. It would be really convenient. It could be done as a popup/checkbox choice if we are removing the encryption software from an endpoint (or multiple endpoints with a a set of confirmation steps for decrypting).

    In an MSP environment, MSP customers often leave and MSPs want the ability to put things back into a state where they were before they got there. Another reason to add this feature .

  19. 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

  20. Allow Mass Verification of Key Presence in SGN Database

    There should be a process, field, alert, literally ANYTHING that allows us to check, en masse, the presence of a valid recovery key. The only way to make sure that a valid key exists is to check the machines manually.

    We have had issues with Surfaces, where the key becomes corrupted or lost or something, and we don't realize there is a problem until we have to actually do a recovery.

    Other products have an alert or something that says when a client is in a state that isn't optimal. SGN does not. It should be easy to query the…
