  1. 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.

  2. SMA: display which node clients are connected to

    To help troubleshooting, it would be good to be able to find out which Web Appliance a particular user is connected to within a managed group of appliances.

  3. 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.

  4. QoS in web appliance

    The ability to throttle or rate limit bandwidth consumption at a per user, per site, or per category level is extremely useful with the proliferation of multimedia sites and BYOD scenarios. One good specific example is the YouYube Pre-Fetch option on Android devices that downloads all your channels when you are on a Wifi connection. This means that when a yesr comes in and connects to our corporate wireless it is possible
    to flood the internet connection with downloads from YouTube. There are other obvious examples.

  5. Syslog: Log all system data, not just web traffic

    Advanced logging is needed to troubleshoot issues.

    Currently syslog only logs events such as what sites user’s visit. We need to be able to see when the appliances are rebooted, any errors that are occurring, amount of current connections on each appliance, incoming web requests, and basically anything Sophos Support can see from the backend.

    This feature would help us greatly in troubleshooting issues we are currently seeing. It is frustrating to have to contact Sophos Support when issues are occurring do to the impact to our user’s while we wait on support. If we were able to see this…

  6. Add to allow FQDN\USER based AD authentication via captive portal

    Currently you need to authenticate via DOMAIN\USER via captive portal to match configured policies. If the user use FQDN\USER the web appliance fails to assign the policy, even the same user account is used.

  7. Control URLs based on keywords

    Would like to be able to block key words in a URL.

    e.g. http://www.test.com/pages/gunblood.html & www.sophos.com/gunblood.html would both blocked by just adding the string "gunblood.html"

  8. Alerts: Support authenticated SMTP connections

    Provide the ability for reports to be sent via an authenticated SMTP server. Increasingly SMTP servers are set up to require authentication before messages can be sent. Organizations that use cloud-based email systems in particular require this capability.

  10. 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.

  11. Permit invalid Transfer-encoding headers

    Request: Webserver from Skat.dk is sending invalid HTTP header values when downloading certain PDF files. The RFC the webserver is violating boils down to “binary” is not a valid value for the Transfer-encoding header.

    Could the SWA optionally allow these invalid header settings so that these files can be accessed?

  12. 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. Comment Field for Additional Policy Manual Entries

    Customer would like a comment field for IP Addresses or ranges of IP addresses under user "Additional Policy: Select Users" dialog box under the "Manual Entries" section. The ability to add a short comment would allow for better referencing and documentation of IP address

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. Syslog: Send log data to multiple devices

    Allow the functionality to output syslog to multiple servers. This would allow the customer to generate redundant logs from the source, rather than duplicating them after thefact. This is especially helpful in UDP scenarios.

  18. 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…

  19. Modify individual Alerts on the appliances

  20. Increase the number of destinations on the top bandwidth report.

    The current number of destinations displayed is 5 per user. To increase the usefulness of this report increase the limit or allow the user to select the number of destinations to include in the report.
