  1. Add office365.com to Web Application destinations

    Platinum Customer CH2M Hill Companies requests this feature.
    Currently we have only Outlook.com categorized as an Web Application. Office365 should also be seen by the SWA as Web Application, especially for reporting purposes.

  2. 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. 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.

  6. (user- or group-) policy based option to restrict maximum filesize per download

    customer called with the need to restrict the maximum filesize of single download: like setting up a policy for a usergroup XY to allow downloads with a maximum filesize of 50MB.
    Thanks for considering ;)

  10. Finer grain control for report scheduler - Web appliance

    On the Management/Web appliance you can schedule reports, but there are only report packages. Can you add the ability to specify more custom reports (eg. Only "Top bandwidth Users") and not the whole "package".

  12. Option to Trust all sites based on user authentication

    Based on 4919063
    Customer would like to bypass all scanning and filtering (note: not just allow sites) based on user account, rather than simply bypassing the appliance for the user in question.

  13. 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…

  14. Proxy: IPv6 through WSA

    We're implementing IPv6 in our network and this would allow us to configure users to go through the web appliance for logging and filtering instead of straight through our router.

  15. Clear user cache for specific IPs/users

    The web appliance works like this: The appliance authenticates requests from supported end user browsers against Active Directory, and uses cached information to authenticate requests from applications.

    However if you have then excluded a machine from authenticating it will still use the last cached user. Their issue was that the last user logged in had not worked for them for a few months but Windows update traffic was still logged against their username.

    Whilst we can manually clear out the cached user from the backend, the customer wants there to be an option in the GUI to clear the cache…

  17. Send email alert on ATP event

    The ability to receive ATP alert notifications will save us from having to check the SWA web appliance console every 5 minutes and therefore carry on with our
    BAU tasks.

    This gives us the necessary alerts to respond to potential advanced threats ASAP.

  18. Block upload of attachments to webmail servers

    At the moment Web Appliance can only block downloads of certain files. What the customer wants is to be able to block uploads of attachments to webmail servers like Yahoo, Gmail, etc. BUT allow sending of emails. So emails can be sent but no attachments.

  20. Local Site List Alerts When Entry is Redundant

    The idea would be to automatically, periodically review the Local Site List entries and flag those (with a check box option to autoremove?) entries that are no longer needed as they no longer differ from the Sophos provided data. This would primarily impact LSL entries to set a category for uncategorized sites that are subsequently categorized. This would assist admins to reduce the number of entries in their local site list.
