  1. 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…

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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 HKEYLOCALMACHINE\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…

  10. 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)

  12. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Support for Bepo Keyboard layout at boot with Safeguard

    One of our platinum customer would like to know, if a support for Bepo Layout (http://www.bepo.fr/ ) could be implemented to be used at boot when using Safeguard engine.

    As far as I know, it is not possible with Bitlocker engine, due to the fact that only QWERTY layout can be used. Customer would like to have the possibility to use this BEPO layout for booting with Sophos engine.

  20. Add whitelist for data control categories e.g. so we can whitelist test creditcard data which repeatedly causes false positive alerts

    We develop payment processing software. On an average day we get several alerts from developers using files with test card data in them. It'd be great if we could load a whitelist of test cards.
