  2. Application Based File Encryption: Generic corruption message for encrypted files

    For application based file encryption, if a user manually encrypts a file that is not specified within the policy as a designated file type that is automatically encrypted, the user can not view the encrypted data. Sophos GES informed me that the product is designed to function this way, which makes no sense. I recommend giving the user ability to not only encrypt any file they choose, but also be able to open/read the file. My second complaint is that if the file is encrypted but not a designated file type within the policy, the user will get a generic…

  3. 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 .

  4. Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to select which partitions on Windows and Mac get encrypted

    Sophos Central Disk Encryption: Need to be able to select which partitions on Windows and Mac devices alike so that all drives are not always encrypted be default.

    On Windows machines, some come from the factory woth recovery partition software. Encrypting these partitions creates a problem for using the recovery options from a post BIOS boot.

    On Macs, some devices may have multiple partitions for a variety of reasons. Decrypting them is not done automatically when the primary is decrypted and requires it be a manual process.

    Giving the choice adds to the flexibility and benefit of feature flexibility

  5. Ability to change the Windows 7 lock screen account picture

    Currently in Safeguard Management Center there are options available to change the background and logon image used at the POA, but no options to change the Windows account picture to say something more personalised for a company for example and it the program overrides whatever Windows 7 has it currently set to. It would be a nice touch if it was possible to have this ability added into Safeguard in some way, if possible please.

  6. Sophos Central - Manage Endpoint Software: Add ability to remove any/all Sophos software from a computer from the Central Management Console

    Sophos Central - Manage Endpoint Software: Add ability to remove any/all Sophos software from a computer from the Central Management Console.

    This should include just Central Encryption Components as well.

    Many MSPs want the ability to remove their management for their customers and this would include all traces or a managed software solution. This is a very common request among MSPs and their automation facilities and tools that they use to manage and deploy software to customer computers.

  9. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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
