  2. 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.

  3. Email Gateway - Enable policy to hold password protected attachments for release by an administrator.

    I want the ablility to configure my policy to hold attachments, from users.
    An administrator could then go in an release the held attachment.

    I personally would like to hold all password protected files including zip files since Mail Gateway can not scan them and allows them to go directly to user. If an email contains the file's password a user could then open then scanned files.

  5. When a URL is blocked, the log should have more detail

    When a URL is Blocked, the log should have more detail as to why the URL was blocked. We should be able to see these details so we can troubleshoot and fix the issue instead of calling support.

  6. Email Appliance: Extend log past 30 days

    The "search" log only goes as far back as 30 days. There should be an option to allow admins to set it for more than 30 days (60, 90, 120, etc.)

  8. 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

  9. Wizard on Mail Geteway

    Central Mail Gateway is too complicate to configure.
    I suggest that the configuration will be made from a full wizard, that means that all configuration will be made by a wizard that after the the wizard will be finished all the configuration in office 365 will be made includes connectors of inbound and outbound.
    The only thing that will remain is that the customer / integrator will need to change the MX records and even that will be checked that it has made correctly if not the wizard will not complete.

  10. 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?

  11. Allowing additional listening ports to be added in Management Appliance

    The feature is available in Web Appliance but not in Management Appliance.

    Customer is not able to use additional port with load-balancing feature since the virtual IP is hosted by SMA.

  12. Only shows Content of the message while it is in the queue, once delivered and appears in the mail logs, no way to see detail in GUI.

    Email appliance only shows content of the message while it is in the queue, once delivered and appears in the mail logs, no way to see detail in GUI. It is very useful and more secure to allow admins to view the content of a message in the mail log. This would enormously helpful in assisting users, so that they didn't have to forward the suspect email back to help desk, exposing the threat further. Users simply informed that they received an email they were suspicious of, and who it was from.

  13. 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.

  15. more granular bandwith reporting per Domain and Subdomain

    Client asked for an option in reporting, where he can see a more detailed bandwidth usage based on URLs and if applicable subdomains to check the total bandwidth/volume/bytes/hits consumed for everyone globally going through the web appliance.

    At this point, bandwidth for domain xyc.com already can be checked, but cannot differenciate the bandwidth usage for (examples) abc.xyz.com, bca.xyz.com and cba.xyz.com

    Thanks for considering!

  16. 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…

  17. time should include one thousandth of a second

    Time should include one thousandth of a second when searching user web history. When endpoint security products detect malicious web activity it would be helpful to have the Web Gateway display to the thousandth of a second in the Date/Time column so we can match the time with the event that occurred on endpoint security. That way we can block the URL by adding it to the local site list. I know the Web Gateway can do this because I see this detail in my SIEM when the Web Gateway sends events to the SIEM.
    Thank you!

  18. 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?

  19. Web Appliance Configuration

    It would be very useful to have a tool to download and view the configuration fo the web appllainces, mainly the policy configuration.

    Right now it seems the only way to get the policy configuration is to extract the policy.xml file from a backup but it's nearly unreadable
