  2. Request to have option to change the interval for the default synch time of AD to Web appliance

    Hello Team,

    We have customer here requesting to to have option to change the interval for the default synch time of AD to Web appliance. Customer advise that they need to have shortened AD synch interval as when they do changes on AD, it takes time for the synchronization to take effect. Partner is aware that he can do the manual synchronization but he said that customer needs to contact him just to do the manual synchronization. For your assistance please. Thank You

  3. Sophos Email Gateway Encryption Enhancement

    Email Gateway Encryption needs some enhancements.
    1. Option to disable multiple languages when users receive encrypted emails.
    2. Sophos uses Echoworx for encryption but doesn't utilize the web portal. Giving the ability to use the web portal for recipients to send back a message encrypted would be great and it will be secure.

  5. Record HTTP headers

    Today, Sophos Web Appliance records HTTP URLs, caller (using LDAP) and timestamp.

    I'd like to request that it should also record HTTP headers.

    We are existing clients who'd like to audit HTTP calls and we need the headers to be included.

  6. More granular search parameters required for Recent Activity Search

    When conducting a Recent Activity Search By User it would be more than helpful to display the IP address of the device that was being used by the user at the time of URL access. We have had a number of occasions where Indicators of Compromised servers have been flagged to us and we need to trace the users and devices that have attempted to access these sites however this is not possible as the search parameters and detail given is not granular enough. The IP addresses are shown when you use a By Suspicious Activity search so the information…

  7. I suggest that the Sophos Email Appliance be able to support the Microsoft limits for email.

    Currently the SMTP settings on the Sophos email appliance do not support the Microsoft limits. Example: The Maximum number of recipients on the Sophos email appliance only supports 1000 recipients while Microsoft supports 10,000. Can we upgrade the Sophos Email Appliance to support these settings: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/exchange-online-limits.aspx

  8. All emails that are quarantined should be included in quarantine digests. This includes but not limited to DKIM verification failures under

    Without including all quarantined emails in the digest, how would an end user know if they had a message trapped by the appliance that may be legitimate?

  9. Allow single host route CIDR /32

    Currently it's not possible to add a route to a single IP address (CIDR /32), but the smallest destination CIDR address is a /31. In some circumstances it's mandatory to use a route to a single IP address.

  12. ssmtp

    I would like the appliance to send emails securely. That is, I could use ssmtp, tls, starttls, for sending alerts and reports.

    Currently you can only use SMTP.

  13. Show correct error page when Uncategorized category is blocked

    When a user attempts to visit an invalid URL (does not resolve in DNS) and the Uncategorized category is set to Block on the WS, the user will incorrectly be shown a “Blocked due to category” error page. While the URL is likely ‘Uncategorized’, it would be more correct to show the user a splash screen for “Server Error Page” that explains “The web address you entered could not be found.” The “Blocked due to category” error page allows the user to submit a request for access to a URL that doesn’t exist, creates additional IT work orders, and wastes…

  14. Reports which file type is blocked.

    Currently if a user has a problem with a certain site because a file type is blocked it is not displayed in the reports.

    So have to investigate this in the syslog if you have set it up or call Sophos support which takes too much time.

    Can the reason for the file type block be added in the reports?

  15. Email Applicance - Possibility to remove Disposition-Notification-To and Return-Receipt-To headers

    Product "Email Appliance" is not available so posting it hear instead.
    Sometimes we receive e-mails which have the headers "Disposition-Notification-To: " and "Return-Receipt-To: " set.
    I would like to remove those 2 headers (only for certain recipients) and sent the mail through.

  16. To upgrade the Sophos Virtual Web Appliance hardware version to VMX10

    Hi Team,

    There are various problems in terms of performance of Sophos Virtual Web Appliance hardware version vmx4.

    Its always better to be on latest version for better efficiency and performance.

    Our environment recommended to upgrade the Sophos Web Appliance hardware version from vmx4 to VMX10 but Unfortunately the vmx10 officially you have not tested the hardware version 10 with the Sophos Web Appliance.

    and its not recommended as of now. could you please test the vmx10 version and make it officially supported

    Regards
    Tajudeen

  17. download size

    Set the maximum Downlaod-Size of File in Rules.
    We want to set a Rule for Users or IPs that control the max. Size of a Download-File. e. g. is not allowed to Download a File with over 25MB.
    In SiteKiosk we can set this Option, but when the Sophos Web Appliance is used as Proxy, the Download starts and get the hole File (e. g. 100MB) and then SiteKiosk can say: No, Download is to large ...

  18. Generic block option

    Generic Block for local site list.

    This came up when trying to block a website for all our sites except for one.
    Additional policy was created to allow the site, but to block other sites we changed the Category to something that was blocked. This does not indicate the correct reason.

    Unable to use global block tag as it has higher precedence.

  19. Have the ability to modify the Syslog output format

    The ability to modify the syslog output would be a great feature so that we can tailor that output to a format that works best with our SIEM.
