  2. Display an 'Acceptable Use Policy' page without requiring login

    Our customer is currently using WebMarshal for their web filtering solution and will be moving to the Sophos Web Appliance. One of the key Information Governance requirements is that they currently have a landing page when a user launches IE which advises users of the acceptable usage policy for web browsing over their network. This landing page is only displayed once every 24 hours per user session.

    I believe there is no equivalent with the Sophos Web Appliance unless you use the 'Captive Portal' option which would prompt the user for authentication before they are allowed to Web browse.

  5. Reporting: Users with top blocked request

    I would like to run a report that will list all users by blocked request. This will allow administrators to see users who are attempting to bypass the filtering, and or have a compromised machine.

    New custom report >> Available Reports: Users >> Today >> All Departments >> With the Action "Blocked" and then be able to sort by Requests.

  6. "Allow user feedback" that is anonymous

    The American Civil Liberties Union successfully filed suit against a school district for not allowing anonymous submission for changes to blocked web sites. I am requesting that under “Allow User Feedback” that the request come in anonymously even when Active Directory / eDirectory authentication is enabled.

    What would you like this new feature to be/do? Allow anonymous submission for changes to blocked websites when “Allow User Feedback” is enabled and LDAP authentication is enabled.

    How will this new feature address your business requirements? It will allow us to comply with the legal requirements of the United States and Washington State.

  7. Reporting: Reports by Tag, showing results of search by Tag on Local Site List.

    Creating Reports by Tag, showing the same results of search by Tag, using "Show filters" option, on Local Site List, but with the original Category and Risk Class shown for each site found.

    Customer's business needs are:
    - when the employee who checks Appliance Reports for Italian law compliance went to Cariparma, when he saw that a huge numbers of sites could be added to Local Site List, assigning tags, recategorizing them and overriding risk class, he told them he needs the results of searching Local Site List by tag, thanks to 'Show filters' option, as a Report and with…

  10. Ability to customize the "Submit request" page

    When going to a blocked page, if "Allow user feedback" is enabled in the policy, users are able to "Submit request" to the administrator.

    The "Submit request" page cannot be customized; it would be nice if you could do that.

  11. Send TCP-KeepAlive Packets

    When Scanning files the Appliance should send TCP-Keep-Alive packets in order for clients to see that the connection did not go stale.
    Customer would like to have a choice of either the patience page, tcp-keep-alive, or nothing. Selection could be made on the Configuration->Notification Page Options Page

  14. Add hyperlink from PUA User Submissions to Download Options

    Add a visible hyperlink from PUA User Submissions section to Configuration -> Download Options. It is difficult for those new to the web appliance to know where already authorized PUAs are located. Especially since they disappear from User Submissions after a decision is made.

  15. Advanced settings for "Search Term Alerts"

    Currently we're seeing a lot of customers that experience multiple emails when using the "Search Term Alerts" feature on the web appliance due to instant search which is enabled by default on sites such as google. Ie, customers are receiving an email for each letter typed into the search bar.

  16. Ability to bypass HTTPS scanning for certain internal IP/IP range.

    As it would be impossible to push out a SSL certificate to a guest network, or to custom non-pc system, this would allow customer to still use HTTPS scanning for the rest of the network

  17. AD: User idenfication via an endpoint software agent

    We want a Directory Agent that we could install on our Domain PC's and MAC's that will notify the "in-line or bridged mode" WS1100 of who's logged in regardless of what browser they are using. This is highly needed because of all the types of browsers now on the market, NTLM does not play nice with all of them. Consequently, IE is the only one that pushes settings via GPO. Rather then using that, we'd much rather just have an agent that we can install on the machines.

    For any device not running the agent, have a web authentication popup…

  18. Reporting: Exclude some substrings matches from Search Terms

    In the Reports --> "Search Terms", selectively exclude some matches (while still including substring matches). As an example, keep "sex" as a search term, but exclude "Sussex" (while still keeping "Include substring matches").

  19. A flag in /log/sophos_log that shows search term results

    It would be nice if there was a new logged item in the /log/sophos_log file that points out what users are searching for. Something like search_term=test1

    This way if the customer uses a syslog server, he can setup something to pull all search results based on user or just general query. Raymond James requested this.

  20. Data Leakage coaching page

    Feature Request Summary Ability to display a coaching page advising of potential risks of data leakage when using web-based e-mail accounts allowing the user to proceed at their own discretion without any further coaching pages preventing content from being displayed. Alternatively, if the Global Policy, Data Leakage Prevention, Webmail Control policy could be made more granular this would probably meet our needs.

    How will this new feature address your business requirements? We have an information governance requirement to prevent identifiable data from leaving the NHS Trust without encryption. Such features would allow us to properly warn users of the potential…
