  2. 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…

  3. 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)

  4. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Currently Single Sign-on caches the Windows credentials indefinitely.

    If a user logs into a machine with Single Sign-on enabled, SafeGuard's POA caches the credentials of the user and does not clear them. This leads to the possibility that a user could log into POA, walk away to get coffee, and, if delayed, could have a different user log into Windows with their cached credentials. This would allow the secondary user access to network and local resources that could be blocked normally including sensitive/private/classified data.

  14. Support Apple Open Directory with SGN

    OSX client based on Apple Open Directory should be fully manageable with the SGN Management Center.
    FileVault2 and File Encryption policy should be fully applicable for those kinds of objects (machines and users).
    Use cases like re-image of client or re-name of user should be part of implementation.

  15. SafeGuard Watchdog should also monitor status of SGNAuthService and reset it if it hangs

    SafeGuard Watchdog should also monitor status of SGNAuthService and reset it if it hangs. Customers provide feedback that if the SG Credential Provider will not show up when trying to login a manual restart of SGNAuthService will help.
    So why not using our own watchdog to get rid of this issue?

  17. SGN Installer should always log with msi-Paramter /L*vx

    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.

  18. SGFE for Mac - policy vs. interface

    Some attention to the interface would seem necessary to address perceived "shortcomings" in the product regarding external media (thumb drives...)
    Background:
    Policy set to always encrypt. Dialog box pops up asking if user wants to encrypt.
    Currently:
    No encryption takes place until the dialog box is addressed even though policy is to always encrypt.
    This leaves a window of opportunity for the user to not encrypt the drive/data. Arguably that is nice, in the event the drive is not yours, and it would be problematic to encrypt data on a drive that is from a user outside of the organization... …

  19. Windows Lockscreen Configuration

    Hi,
    User reported that Windows Spotlight / lockscreen image change is not working after Sophos installation.
    As we gone through below KB article, it seems lock screen and spot light images are managed by Sophos Safeguard (the credential provider).

    We confirmed that after sophos installation it’s happening to all laptops. PFA snapshots and mails FYKR.
    Raised a case with Sophos (Case ID # 8378537), and the said it’s not possible. “There is no official way to change the lockscreen on a machine protected by SafeGuard Enterprise, this is by design.”
    Our issue is spot light images are not changing automatically,…
