  1. Not able to access money control

    sir,
    I am not able to connect with some of the sites like moneycontrol.com, karvyonline.com. these sites are only for stock trading nothing else. And I am investor in share market and I want to watch those sites regularly as it is my field of studying and also I am having financial interests in them. kindly remove the blockage to access them, so could I use them.
    thanking you

    • 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.

      • User Feedback: Email user confirmation of feedback submission

        When a user provides a feedback/access request after seeing a block page, the SWA should send the user an email to confirm receipt of their submission. Otherwise, the user might wonder if it really happened.

        • Allow users (i.e. teachers) to specify website allow exception with password

          I think that it would help to allow the endpoint user the ability to add a site exception for a limited time or permanently. One would need an admin password that you'd need to specify at the web appliance or in the SEC. K9 works this way, and it saves a lot of admin time.

          • Category: Social Networking

            Despite the growing number of Social Networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, the Sophos Web Filter does not have a ‘Social Networking’ category, and instead places such sites in ‘Personals and Dating’ by default.

            In our opinion, Personals/Dating sites are very different to Social Networking sites, the latter having a legitimate business need to be accessed by certain teams within the organisation, whereas the former does not.

            Therefore, we request that you add ‘Social Networking’ to the list of website categories on the Sophos Web Filter, so that we can streamline appropriate access to such sites.

            • Category request: Split the Proxies & Translators Category

              Customer requested that these two items be split into separate categories as they would be unrelated for the most part.

              • Category: CDNs

                We have always had an issue with websites which use CDN ( content Delivery Network) to host their media.
                Majority of the times the sites are incorrectly categorised and we would need to go through the tedious task of sending a request for it to be reviewed. More often than none, these request get rejected and we need to put a manual override
                in place.
                Would it be possible to create new category called CDN so we can out a default access level and avoid any future issues with sites with CDNs.

                • Categorization: Dynamic categorization for objectionable content

                  Dynamic categorization is required to allow blocking of sites that contain objectionable content but are not categorized as such.

                  For example, in some cases customers find that allowing Uncategorized sites exposes users to objectionable content, but blocking Uncategorized sites blocks sites they need to access.

                  There are also situations where objectionable content might appear on categorized sites, which can be particularly problematic for school environments.
