  1. 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.

  4. Web appliance automatically clear usercache

    Submitting on behalf of client. On the backend of the web appliance if you can automate the user cache to purge older users that have authenticated. Currently anything in the user cache is kept permanently - if there is no new authentication and coming from the same IP this would cause incorrect reporting data.

    For example any users thate authenticated and is still in the cache over 'x' amount of months/days should automatically delete.

  5. As an admin I would like to test policy application also for roaming endpoints.

    On Sophos Web Appliance, actual policy tester tool does not care of roaming endpoints, if additional policy is applied for machines connecting from outside the local network, policy check results does not allow administrators to know which policy is currently applied for roaming endpoitns.

  6. local site list

    Improve the way the web appliance handles local site lists when you reach over 5000+, When too many local site lists it causes websites not being tagged correctly, or when adding local site lists it doesn't go through properly

    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.
