  1. 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.

  3. 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

  5. Allow Bridge mode on the VM version

    Allow the VM version to be built with the bridge mode functionality. Most servers these days come with four or more NIC's, plenty of ports to do bridge mode with a normal server without special hardware. Multiple VM's and host machines can be used for redundancy or some type of manual bypass could be used if the single VM fails. Would allow easier conversion of sites that use bridge mode and also allow them to use this as a backup method if hardware fails and they are waiting for replacement parts.

  6. More Granular Control Over Granting Access to File Sharing Services

    Rather than an all or nothing policy it would be extremely useful to be able to have more granular control over the level of access provided for file sharing services such as Dropbox. By more granular I mean being able to provide access to specific folders rather than the whole service. I have been advised by Sophos technical support this is currently not possible hence my request.

  7. Allow mDNS/Bonjour on the local LAN to work in the browsers.

    Allow mDNS/Bonjour on the local LAN to work in the browsers. The web protection currently blocks them for no apparent reason.Put an option in the software to allow mDNS to work, it IS the age of iOT after all.

  8. 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.

  10. Web Control: Option for live connect in web policy

    When in a large International MPLS connected networks, allow for remote sites to live connect via their local break out internet connection rather than all web browsing traffic being pushed to the appliance via the connected links. Thus being able to benefit from full categorisation and reporting.

  11. 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.

  12. Socks proxy support with http proxy

    Sophia web appliance should support socks5 too. This would allow MacOS and Cisco Anyconnect to integrate more with it. Currently Anyconnect sets all the MAC proxy settings to the same proxy server but because socks isn't available only certain functions work properly.

  18. Change the behavior of querying DNS server, which are serialize at the moment

    Customer figures that the SWA serializes DNS-queries and will only answer the 2nd when the 1st was answered or runs into a timeout.
    The other day a dDOS was run agains the teamviewer nameservers, which then completely blocked the SWA.

  19. Alter time frequency related to SWA to SMA sync jobs

    As an admin I would like to increase time frequency related to SWA to SMA sync jobs.
    Issue come up when SMA and SWA are connected through MPLS, when managed SWAs are several, these operations overwhelm the MPLS line.

    The goal would be to have the possibility to alter the sync frequency so these data could flow into low peak times.

  20. Reflexion: Backups on your end for all accounts

    Reflexion accounts backup with 14-day retention. Even daily .csv backup would be better than nothing and super small. Helpful in cases like today where AD Sync utility deleted all the accounts because Exchange was removed before we disabled AD Sync (migration to 365).
