  1. Windows Lockscreen Configuration

    At the moment it is not possible to configure the windows 10 locksreen if Safeguad is installed.
    Please make it possible to let the admin choose if it is possible or not.
    Best would be to configure it via Windos GPO. To configure it via Safeguard policy would be an alternative way.

  2. Need to add IDENTITY FINDER to your list of applicaitons to cotrol

    Your application control feature is currently seeing Identity Finders "SHREDDING" function as ransomware and throwing false alarms. We have no way to stop the false alarms as identity finder is not listed in the list of applications to control or not control

  3. Data Control option to scan only when uploading not while downloading

    Data Control scans files both when downloading and uploading files to the web which is crazy...

    Well it's fair enough to have the option.

    Data Control can take ages to scan files...

    I think there should be a setting within the policies to only scan in one direction up, down of both.

    We use it as data loss prevention software to log sensitive going out the building, it grinds on our process when scanning every downloaded file.

    Thanks.

  4. SGN Installer should always log with extended msi-logging

    The SafeGuard client installers should log every installation and uninstallation with the paramter /L*vx to a documented folder.
    In case of error and/or compatibility issues the behaviour would be logged.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Move Recovery Button

    Please move the recovery button a bit further from the OK button. UX principles would suggest that such a radically different function should not be close enough to the OK button such that an accidental click renders the system in a temporarily unusable state. OK/Clear/Recovery/Restart or something like that would be better to give a buffer for those of us with fat fingers and itchy mouse triggers.

  9. URGENT - Prevent SGN to Change AD Password

    When a network user logon to a computer with SGN installed and the user´s password is expired, SGN requests a password change.

    SGN must have a way to disable this feature, preventing request a new password to network users when company uses a external Password Manager.

  10. Provide SGPortable without File Encrytpion Modules DX or CS

    Providing SGPortable without Data Exchange or Cloud Storage would enable 3rd Party Users to read encrypted files provided by SGN-Users without using Outlook-Plugin (in addition to the ideas of SyncEnc Appication Wildcards and Keygeneration with passphrase in SGN MC)

  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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.
