  1. Sophos Live Connect

    Hi everyone, I have enabled Sophos Live Connect on the management server but I have the problem that the list of enabled and then removed clients is not updated, it always stays with the old rumbling entries. Is there a chance to remove these old rumors?
    Thank you.
    Francesco

    • Website Tags - Options to Warn / Audit

      It would be very useful for testing custom URL tagging if we were able to audit, in addition to allowing and blocking, clicks through to URLs we have tagged. This would allow us to deploy large changes at a large scale with no impact while we observe the potential impact.

      • Web appliance status to show free disk space

        Following an outage that impacted end users through appliance not accepting connections resulting in web pages being inaccessible, requesting functionality to display used and free disk space on (virtual) Web Appliance. It would also be useful to be able to query this using SNMP (see separate Idea submitted by another user in 2012) and/or receive email alerts when disk free space was below a set threshold.

        Background is that disk was so full that even after expanding virtual disk, the inbuilt appliance function to expand the disk would not execute because it could not write the necessary scripts to the…

        • Ability to search logs with IP address or domain of a site visited by a user utilizing the CWG.

          One of our largest platinum service CWG client who is using cloud web gateway services globally requests this feature to be added as soon as possible as this is hindering their global response capabilities.

          They are not able to filter logs under logs section of CWG dashboard on Sophos Central by entering destination IP or domain a user has visited.

          • SSL inspection by pass for non-standard domains

            non-standard domains and sub-domains are ignored for SSL inspection exemption. This makes it hard to exempt corporate trusted domains. example would be "server.itn.shell"

            • SSL exclusion by subnets to apply when browsing with FQDN

              the exception by CIDR range only works for websites requested by IP which is a pointless feature IMO. The exception should apply to sites when using FQDN.

                • 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.

                  • websocket support in SWA

                    Hi..

                    customers would like to have websockets (RFC 6455) being supported/transported by the SWA.

                    Thanks a lot for considering!

                    Kind regards..

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • Bandwidth Throttling Based On Category

                            It would be very helpful to be able to throttle bandwidth usage to sites in certain categories.
                            For example limiting the bandwidth to sites such as YouTube.

                            • Notification page should show either tag or no reason at all instead of initial category

                              When using tags for blocking specific sites, the notification page shows the initial site category, but not the tag.

                              As an example - a customer blocks websites of TV channels - e.g. www.galileo.tv - on the basis of a tag "Block_TV_Sender".
                              www.galileo.tv is originally categorized as "Business", which is a category the customer doesn't block.
                              With the customers setup a user sees a notification page "Reason: Business Sites are blocked" when requesting www.galileo.tv, although Business Sites are allowed, but "Block_TV_Sender" are blocked by tag.

                              It would be usefull to either see the actual blocking reason, or no reason at…

                                    • Sandstorm "Suspicious Downloads" link on Dashboard

                                      When clicking "Suspicious Downloads" in the "Sophos Sandstorm" section of the Dashboard, the link should lead to a report showing the file names and according URLs of these suspicious files, and also the user who requested the file.

                                      • Local site list: Select all

                                        The ability to select all, even from a filtered point of view would be very helpful when dealing with large amounts of sites per TAG

                                        • Local site list: Update sites not just add

                                          The ability to not just add single or multiple but update too. For example updating the TAGs for the site on mass.

                                          Currently this involves deleting the entries and readding the entries which can cause down time

                                          My example is the Office365 IP/URL list. Updating these to Custom category, over 1500 entries.
