  1. Allow exclusions when defining networks by CIDR range

    We would like to add CIDR to a local subnet, but to be able to exclude a specific IP address or a subset. For example

    1) 192.168.0.0/24 -192.168.0.65
    - which would add 192.168.0.0/24 range to the local subnet, except for 192.168.0.65 (for a single appliance).

    2) 192.168.0.0/24 -192.168.0.12-16
    - which would add 192.168.0.0/24 range to the local subnet, except for 192.168.0.12 to 192.168.0.16 (for multiple appliances in the same subnet for load balancing / fault tolerance)

    The alternative is to add in all the included addresses in the CIDR range individually, which is time consuming.

  2. Disconnect currently logged on user from using the internet

    When a user is connected through the web appliance to internet, it sometimes is useful to be able to immediately disconnect him.

  3. WCCP: Specify alternate service IDs for HTTP and HTTPS

    When configuring WCCP, the admin should be able to specify an alternate service ID for use with both http and https, without contacting Sophos support for assistance (currently only available with http redirect).

    We have implemented WCCP with an ASA firewall. It only supports service IDs to be used once on the appliance. When configuring WCCP on multiple interfaces, alternate service IDs are required.

  4. Ability to remove authentication from captive portal and present a web usage policy to accept/deny instead

    Feature Request Summary: Modify the Captive portal to allow and accept/deny button instead of the username/password field.

    What would you like this new feature to be/do? I would like to have to ability to control whether I want to present a user/pass or accept/deny depending on my application. For example, I’d like to pass my guest VLAN traffic through that, and present a terms of service and then accept/deny, but would like my SSO to fail over to the captive portal
    with the ability to login for users that SSO fails for.

  5. Policy: Option to reset the default policy or choose from pre-defined policies

    We would like to be able to reset the default policy to defaults and to have some pre-defined policies to choose as a starting point for building up their own.

  6. Reporting: Increase the Maximum limit of PDF report number

    There is a limit of 1200 users on the PDF format reports. This is not always enough. Please extend this limit.

  7. Control URLs based on keywords

  9. google drive

    If some one wants to allow only google drive and has also turned data leakage prevention web mail on to block gmail. They need to add google.com to the local site list and change the category to something which is allowed. This then breaks data leakage prevention. It would be nice to have an option which would allow or block google drive.

  10. Proxy: Expose Maximum Connections figure

    The Maximum Connections figure has so far only been seen by us when being actually reached, sending the proxy critical; we receive an SMS warning at that point, but no indication in reports
    or an Exception in System Status. Knowing how close to the maximum figure we are at any given time would allow us to plan ahead of time for capacity increase without causing failures and downtime – or support overhead. It is absolutely vital that a maximum,
    or, just as importantly, near maximum that will in essence effectively cause failure to be either raised as an Exception (for…

  13. Policy: Selective SafeSearch settings

    Advanced partner would like a feature request for the Sophos Web Appliances, which was in direct result to a conversation with an existing customer within the education sector.

    Currently, the SafeSearch feature is a global option, allowing you to turn it on or off for all users.

    Could we please:


    • Give the Administrators the option to turn this on or off per policy (Using Additional Policy Controls)

    Or


    • Give the Administrators the option to remove certain sites from this safe search. IE, exclude YouTube but allow all other sites to be used with the SafeSearch facility turned on.

  14. Improve policy prioritization

    When you have a large number of policies, It’s a pain when creating a new policy because this is always created at the bottom of the list and you have to move it up a step one click at a time.

    It would be great if you could select a group of policies and move them all in one go as you can in ISA so instead of moving a policy up past 50 or 60 other policies to get it to where it needs to be.

    An alternative would be to allow you to select where to create the…

  15. I would like the option to see the full query string along with the base URL on user/site reports.

    I would like the option to see the full query string along with the base URL on user/site reports. Often times the query string contains very important web browsing information. For instance, when a user is on Google and they are doing searches, I cannot tell what they have searched unless it is in the Search Terms list – which only reports on specific words. Our previous web appliance, which was an iPrism by Edgewave, allowed us to see the full querystring.

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?: This would help our organization have more details on…

  18. Reports summarized by organizational departments instead of individual users.

    per case 3727737

    This would improve delivery of reports to upper Management as they would like to see more breakdown of reports by department as they have no idea which department the user works in. Having this breakdown can help management drill down to specific departments.

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

  20. Reporting: Report on Uncategorized Web Sites

    This will over time provide meaningful management reports on usage patterns based on category classification of sites visited. With the proposed approach from a company perspective if the identification and classification of uncategorised sites of the most common sites (say top 10%) if this was automated overtime your classifications will have higher classified detection rate.

    per case 3616231
