  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Link activity search items to policy test

    When currently viewing user activity, there is no way to see easily see why an access is permitted or denied. Currently, one needs to take the URL and user information and manually go over to Policy Test and then test to URL to see why a particular action was taken. It would be much better if the reason was available directly from the search activity. For example, clicking on the status entry could pull up a page similar to the results page of Policy Test, and say what the risk level is, category, tags, policy result, policy, and reason.

  4. Add optional fields to the user feedback submission form, such as a contact phone number or computer name.

    A customer considers this a very important enhancement as their previous web filter solution allowed the integration of a custom submission request into their ticketing system, allowing for automatic population with the pertinent details. This was proven to ease greatly request evaluations via their change tracking process.

    The UI could either allow adding custom fields to the user feedback submission page or be able to replace the page with a custom template. Example – would like users to be able to add contact phone, office/computer location, department, name, etc. along with the URL. This would allow customers to streamline administration…

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. Reporting: Report based on primary site visited

    In the web appliance reporting, for non technical users, the reporting is very misleading. When a user goes to a web site such as 'www.yahoo.com', not only does yahoo.com appear in the reports, but if there is a Facebook "like" button that is retrieved from facebook.com, facebook.com will also appear on the report. I would like the report to show only what was clicked on (e.g. a link or bookmark) or typed in the address bar.

    In situations where the report may be used for HR or legal action, the web appliance reports make it difficult to use…

  8. Reports that show time-of-day browsing patterns by category

    "Once I have run a Category report from the Policy and Content section, I would like to take the top categories and chart them (say in a line graph) by time to see when our employees are visiting these categoies.
    I would also like to run a report by category when I wish to know if I should block a site for example: games. If game sites are being visited after hours or during lunch, then that is quite acceptable, but if it were during work hours I need to restrict access."

    a) How will this new feature address your…

  9. False Positives on Blocked Sites Report

    The "Blocked Sites" report indicates HTTP errors as a "block" in the report. Certain server codes like 500 Internal Server Error, should not be included on the report or shown as an "error" rather than a "block" event. This falsely leads you to believe policy is actively blocking the URL.

  10. Re-Run Scheduled Reports

    On the web appliance, it would be nice if you could mass select your scheduled reports and "run now" or "run again". We hit a snag where the mail server wasn't available during the 1st of the month reporting and previewing, then saving, then manually emailing...

    A, added bonus would be to add a change of criteria like a new date range.

  11. 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!

  15. Add tag data as a reason code to Sophos_log output

    Platinum customer request: case 5133456

    "We’re trying to run a Splunk report on users who were allowed (act=1) to visit a list of sites that all have a particular tag"

    Currently the sophos_log doesn't record what tag was used when you see a blocked by tag reason (rsn=1409).

  16. Report of all users browsing during a specific date/time.

    Reporting is too limited. We need to be able to run a report on all users’ internet access in one report. Right now, I would have to do individual user’s reports just to see what/who was accessing the internet during a certain period of time.

  17. SWA Browse Time By User Needs Hour Granularity

    We would like to have a report similar to “browse time by user” but includes time of day filters. For example, we would like to see browse time for a specific user between
    9 AM and 5 PM, Monday to Friday.

    How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have: 4

  19. Reporting: Show traffic from redirects against original URL/Domain

    When a URL redirects to a different location or site, SWA reports show the actual sites for downloading size, etc.

    We would like the option to see the original sites they tried to access before the redirects.

  20. More detailed download reporting

    We've had a customer request the ability to drill down further in the download reporting in Reports > Policy & Content > Downloads as at current the actual downloads / users cannot be viewed, only the size of downloads for a specified period.
