  1. Web Control: Option for live connect in web policy

    When in a large International MPLS connected networks, allow for remote sites to live connect via their local break out internet connection rather than all web browsing traffic being pushed to the appliance via the connected links. Thus being able to benefit from full categorisation and reporting.

    • As an admin I would like to test policy application also for roaming endpoints.

      On Sophos Web Appliance, actual policy tester tool does not care of roaming endpoints, if additional policy is applied for machines connecting from outside the local network, policy check results does not allow administrators to know which policy is currently applied for roaming endpoitns.

      • local site list

        Improve the way the web appliance handles local site lists when you reach over 5000+, When too many local site lists it causes websites not being tagged correctly, or when adding local site lists it doesn't go through properly

        • Secure connection for WiFi login screen

          Cyberoam doesn't give a secure connection ever since being acquired by Sophos. Not only is this unsafe, but websites using HSTS cannot be accessed. I really think this needs to be addressed so that a secure https connection is provided.

          • (user- or group-) policy based option to restrict maximum filesize per download

            customer called with the need to restrict the maximum filesize of single download: like setting up a policy for a usergroup XY to allow downloads with a maximum filesize of 50MB.
            Thanks for considering ;)

              customer said, that he would like to receive a copy of the message sent by the "support request via email", which can be used to send additional information from the appliance to the sophos tech support .

              Customer requested the option to receive a copy of the content to the email address he added in the related input mask.
              thanks!

                  • SWA: Send email alert for infected hosts

                    Customer would like an email alert to be sent, as soon as the SWA detects an infected host, as displayed on the dashboard.
                    This would assure a faster investigation for machines that may be infected.

                      • Reflexion: CSV import more options

                        Allow column for mailbox type (dist list, public folder) so its put in correct silo at time of import. Could me more intelligent too (auto combine first name/last name)

                        • Reflexion: Backups on your end for all accounts

                          Reflexion accounts backup with 14-day retention. Even daily .csv backup would be better than nothing and super small. Helpful in cases like today where AD Sync utility deleted all the accounts because Exchange was removed before we disabled AD Sync (migration to 365).

                                    • Web Appliance: Support Intermediate Certificates for Certificate Authority

                                      Customer would like to use a custom Certificate as Certificate Authority.
                                      According to an internal KBA "Customer Upload of Signing Certificate" the CA Certificate needs to be a top-level Root CA.
                                      The customers CA Certificate is not a top-level Root CA, so he needs to be able to also import an Intermediate Certificate, and therefor requests this feature

                                        • Change the behavior of querying DNS server, which are serialize at the moment

                                          Customer figures that the SWA serializes DNS-queries and will only answer the 2nd when the 1st was answered or runs into a timeout.
                                          The other day a dDOS was run agains the teamviewer nameservers, which then completely blocked the SWA.
