  1. more granular bandwith reporting per Domain and Subdomain

    Client asked for an option in reporting, where he can see a more detailed bandwidth usage based on URLs and if applicable subdomains to check the total bandwidth/volume/bytes/hits consumed for everyone globally going through the web appliance.

    At this point, bandwidth for domain xyc.com already can be checked, but cannot differenciate the bandwidth usage for (examples) abc.xyz.com, bca.xyz.com and cba.xyz.com

    Thanks for considering!

  4. ssmtp

    I would like the appliance to send emails securely. That is, I could use ssmtp, tls, starttls, for sending alerts and reports.

    Currently you can only use SMTP.

    regards

  5. Whitelisting only seems to work for IP address and not DNS names

    We recently tried to whitelist a VPN connection in Secure Web Gateway, using the DNS name did not whitelist the VPN, we had to put the actual IP address in to the whitelist to get it to work.

  6. When a URL is blocked, the log should have more detail

    When a URL is Blocked, the log should have more detail as to why the URL was blocked. We should be able to see these details so we can troubleshoot and fix the issue instead of calling support.

  7. time should include one thousandth of a second

    Time should include one thousandth of a second when searching user web history. When endpoint security products detect malicious web activity it would be helpful to have the Web Gateway display to the thousandth of a second in the Date/Time column so we can match the time with the event that occurred on endpoint security. That way we can block the URL by adding it to the local site list. I know the Web Gateway can do this because I see this detail in my SIEM when the Web Gateway sends events to the SIEM.
    Thank you!

  8. Block Newly Registered Websites

    The ability to block newly registered websites would be great. So many new sites are created with malicious intent. Say 30 days or 60 days. The Sophos Firewall has the ability to do this, so should the Web Gateway.
    Thanks!

  10. Show correct error page when Uncategorized category is blocked

    When a user attempts to visit an invalid URL (does not resolve in DNS) and the Uncategorized category is set to Block on the WS, the user will incorrectly be shown a “Blocked due to category” error page. While the URL is likely ‘Uncategorized’, it would be more correct to show the user a splash screen for “Server Error Page” that explains “The web address you entered could not be found.” The “Blocked due to category” error page allows the user to submit a request for access to a URL that doesn’t exist, creates additional IT work orders, and wastes…

  12. Web Appliance Configuration

    It would be very useful to have a tool to download and view the configuration fo the web appllainces, mainly the policy configuration.

    Right now it seems the only way to get the policy configuration is to extract the policy.xml file from a backup but it's nearly unreadable

  13. Separate Web Gateway Role from Help Desk read

    I'd suggest removing the Web Gateway logs readability and search from the Help Desk and Read-only Roles. I need help desk folks to be able to troubleshoot the end-point by disabling the tamper protection, call into support, etc. What I don't want is the ability for all the help desk personnel to see and search the browsing history of any user, especially VIPs. Is there already a way to do this?

  14. Web

    Audit/System configuration log in order to determine when changes are made by a user. The log should be able to identify time of access to the web appliance, who accessed it, and what changes to the appliance, policies, and other configurations were made by that user. The report/log should also would be useful if the Administrator could export the log (i.e PDF, CSV, etc)

  15. Reports which file type is blocked.

    Currently if a user has a problem with a certain site because a file type is blocked it is not displayed in the reports.

    So have to investigate this in the syslog if you have set it up or call Sophos support which takes too much time.

    Can the reason for the file type block be added in the reports?

  16. Email Applicance - Possibility to remove Disposition-Notification-To and Return-Receipt-To headers

    Product "Email Appliance" is not available so posting it hear instead.
    Sometimes we receive e-mails which have the headers "Disposition-Notification-To: " and "Return-Receipt-To: " set.
    I would like to remove those 2 headers (only for certain recipients) and sent the mail through.

  17. To upgrade the Sophos Virtual Web Appliance hardware version to VMX10

    Hi Team,

    There are various problems in terms of performance of Sophos Virtual Web Appliance hardware version vmx4.

    Its always better to be on latest version for better efficiency and performance.

    Our environment recommended to upgrade the Sophos Web Appliance hardware version from vmx4 to VMX10 but Unfortunately the vmx10 officially you have not tested the hardware version 10 with the Sophos Web Appliance.

    and its not recommended as of now. could you please test the vmx10 version and make it officially supported

    Regards
    Tajudeen

  19. Deactivate encrypted file blocking by URL

    Hi guys,

    at the moment it is only possible to block ALL encrypted and unscannable files under Filtering Options -> Misc

    It would be great to get an option in the Exceptions to deactivate the blocking for encrypted files by URL.

  20. Implement some basic security features.

    The standard Web Gateway install exhibits the following behaviour that really should be fixed.

    Revoked leaf certificate - treats as trusted.
    Bad HPKP pin - treats as trusted.
    SHA-1 signed certificate - treats as trusted.
    Invalid SCT - treats as trusted.

    I mean come on, not checking for revoked certificates is pathetic in what's meant to be a security product.
