  1. 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!

  2. 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?

  3. 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

  5. Separate Web Gateway Role from Help Desk read

    I'd suggest removing the Web Gateway logs readability and search from the Help Desk and Read-only Roles. I need help desk folks to be able to troubleshoot the end-point by disabling the tamper protection, call into support, etc. What I don't want is the ability for all the help desk personnel to see and search the browsing history of any user, especially VIPs. Is there already a way to do this?

  6. 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

  7. Web

    Audit/System configuration log in order to determine when changes are made by a user. The log should be able to identify time of access to the web appliance, who accessed it, and what changes to the appliance, policies, and other configurations were made by that user. The report/log should also would be useful if the Administrator could export the log (i.e PDF, CSV, etc)

  8. Ability to search logs with IP address or domain of a site visited by a user utilizing the CWG.

    One of our largest platinum service CWG client who is using cloud web gateway services globally requests this feature to be added as soon as possible as this is hindering their global response capabilities.

    They are not able to filter logs under logs section of CWG dashboard on Sophos Central by entering destination IP or domain a user has visited.

  11. 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…

  13. Website Tags - Options to Warn / Audit

    It would be very useful for testing custom URL tagging if we were able to audit, in addition to allowing and blocking, clicks through to URLs we have tagged. This would allow us to deploy large changes at a large scale with no impact while we observe the potential impact.

  14. Web Gateway Reporting - Total Browse Time By User

    Being able to run reports on individual users for total browse time during a day, or other period of time, is a pretty standard report on most any other web filter and is painfully lacking in the Cloud Web Gateway. This is a pretty common request from HR departments to get an idea if someone is not managing their time appropriately. The report should be based on activity to get an idea of how long someone was actively browsing web pages.

  15. Allow access to specific URLs with the rest of the domain blocked

    It should be a feature to be able to allow access to certain pages within domains that are blocked.
    For example block google docs as a whole but allow access to a specific URL for access to a document without having to open up access to the whole of Google Docs.

  17. Searching feature when end users browse through the list.

    The list of logs that were quarantine could be many 1000 messages and it would be convenient if users can find a specific email that was mistakenly placed in the quarantine log by entering sender email or subject of the message.

  19. Splashtop App

    Dear All,

    We installed Sophos Web Gateway on a computer and we use Splashtop Business to connect to other remote computer.

    For this Computer, we want to block all the connections except the access for Splashtop.

    So, we created a Policie, and blocked all the settings except Splashtop.

    We had the Ip address and the domain of Splashtop's servers but he changes many times.

    I don't want to add every months the new ip address or the domains.

    is it possible to Add Splashtop Business in App Filters, like Google APP?

    Thank You

    Vivien Pegane
