  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. Office365

    Create a TAG that updates with the IPs and URLs of Office365 by product, eg EXO, LYO, Identity, etc

    This will prevent a manual task of allowing IPs or URLs almost daily for services, or equally removing those which are no longer in use.

    There is an XML available on MS that provides this info with all updates.

  17. Splashtop App

    Dear All,

    We installed Sophos Web Gateway on a computer and we use Splashtop Business to connect to other remote computer.

    For this Computer, we want to block all the connections except the access for Splashtop.

    So, we created a Policie, and blocked all the settings except Splashtop.

    We had the Ip address and the domain of Splashtop's servers but he changes many times.


    I don't want to add every months the new ip address or the domains.

    is it possible to Add Splashtop Business in App Filters, like Google APP?


    Thank You

    Vivien Pegane

  18. TLD blocking Function

    Please add a feature that allows us to block TLD's. Currently we have to manually import a list of TLD's then tag them as being blocked. This also requires us to continuously add new ones as they are released. A feature allowing us to block them and keeping them automatically updated with new ones would be great.

  19. LocalSiteList: entries and possible subdomains

    hi.. due to a customers proposal/feature request:

    This is how it is at the moment:

    --> if a LocalSiteList entry for domain.com is created, all subdomains are handled in the according way. So www.domain.com or blabla.domain.com is 'covered' as well.

    --> if a local site list entry for subdomain.domain.com is created instead, only an exact hit is being treated according to this entry! For example blabla.subdomain.domain.com will not be covered by this entry!

    It really would be helpful, if someone (adding such an entry) could decide and configure with a checkbox, if subdomains should be covered as well by this…

  20. Allow Bridge mode on the VM version

    Allow the VM version to be built with the bridge mode functionality. Most servers these days come with four or more NIC's, plenty of ports to do bridge mode with a normal server without special hardware. Multiple VM's and host machines can be used for redundancy or some type of manual bypass could be used if the single VM fails. Would allow easier conversion of sites that use bridge mode and also allow them to use this as a backup method if hardware fails and they are waiting for replacement parts.
