  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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. 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…

  7. 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?

  8. 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

  9. Web appliance status to show free disk space

    Following an outage that impacted end users through appliance not accepting connections resulting in web pages being inaccessible, requesting functionality to display used and free disk space on (virtual) Web Appliance. It would also be useful to be able to query this using SNMP (see separate Idea submitted by another user in 2012) and/or receive email alerts when disk free space was below a set threshold.

    Background is that disk was so full that even after expanding virtual disk, the inbuilt appliance function to expand the disk would not execute because it could not write the necessary scripts to the…

  12. Logging of all requests hitting the web proxy

    It would be really handy if the logs showed failed authentication, or the option of showing these. If there are any other requests that hit the proxy which it ignores show these too.

    Resorting to packet capture on the client I think is over the top. It also can cause wasted time as presently as authentication exceptions put in like others do not always work for what ever the reason.

  13. Allow individual users to be able to download certain extensions from individual websites

    We would like to be able to allow individual or a group of users to be able to download a file type from a certain website only.

    for example if ZIP files are blocked from being downloaded, however we have three users that often download from dropbox. We would like to allow these three users to be able to download ZIP files from dropbox only.

  15. Ability to clear DNS cache via Web Interface.

    Ability to clear DNS cache via Web Interface.
    A simple button similar to the Clear Cache button to clear DNS information.
    At the least a option on the console (CLI) could be added to clear this.

    If important business related websites change
    IP addresses the SWA will continue to use old DNS/IP information until
    cleared or TTL is reached. This causes major issues if the SWA is the only
    internet gateway. Clearing/Refreshing DNS requires a Sophos Console Support
    session. Clearing the cache should be a simple process.

  17. Support vMotion

    Support for vMotion should be added to the product. A huge proportion of customers require vMotion on their virtual hosts at which point they are running an unsupported configuration.

  18. automated backups require a more secure method than FTP

    As part of our PSN submission it came to light we were using ftp to backup our sophos ESC appliance. It was required that we use a more secure method such as sFTP which the sophos ESC appliance doesn't support. We have had to stop using automated backups.

  19. X-Forwarded-For feature for web appliance

    organisation uses the Google Apps suite quite heavily. We put so much load to them that they end up putting Captcha verifications on searches as per this doc: https://support.google.com/websearch/answer/86640?hl=en

    A way to mitigate these things from happening in scenario’s where organisations may have all of their traffic exiting one or two public IP’s is to implement the X-Forwarded-For into the HTTP header. It means that the web server in question (eg Google) can differentiate between one client and the other.

    We have implemented a back-end feature to add X-Forwarded-For headers to HTTP requests in version 4.2.0 of the Web Appliance. At present it must be enabled by Sophos support but we are considering adding it as a UI option in the future.

    Note that this feature only works for non-secure HTTP so it may not help for the Google situation where the default is for traffic to use HTTPS. This is because with HTTPS, the headers are all part of the secured, encrypted communication within an SSL tunnel. There is no equivalent protocol that would work on SSL traffic.

  20. Exempt URLs from caching

    For Web Security. A feature that will allow administrator to manually add/ remove URL to be exempted from being Cached in WS products.
