  2. Web Appliance: Ability to disable "certificate error " error message in the blockpage

    A customer don´t wants the "certificate error " error message in e.g. the blockpage to be displayed, as this only confuses users.

    As soon as a user requests a blocked HTTPS website, besides the Reason and the Site, the blockpage shows:

  6. Per site global bandwidth usage

    Reference community post :
    https://community.sophos.com/products/web-appliance/f/5/t/76569

    Client would like to be able to specify a single URL/website and look at the TOTAL bandwidth/volume/bytes consumed for everyone globally going through the web appliance.

    There is a fairly similar log but they cannot specify a single URL and can only go by top allowed/block websites.

  7. Provide more detailed, graphical instructions on how to apply security settings

    You obviously have the Sophos system set to clear my problem with warnings. Then your system said to do it by manual adjustment. Huh?
    I tried to eliminate some of them tagged manual only, especially (Mal Drod ZP A) blocked but I failed.
    How about helping users understand the manual way to dump malware using pictures of the steps?

  8. Alter time frequency related to SWA to SMA sync jobs

    As an admin I would like to increase time frequency related to SWA to SMA sync jobs.
    Issue come up when SMA and SWA are connected through MPLS, when managed SWAs are several, these operations overwhelm the MPLS line.

    The goal would be to have the possibility to alter the sync frequency so these data could flow into low peak times.

  13. Captive Portal after SSO authentication

    Customer has various generic user AD accounts. After the client has authenticated with the WSA via SSO, they would like the option to present a captive portal for accounts which belong to certain AD security groups - so that the individual user can log in instead of using the generic user account. It is deployed with Static IPs for Captive Portal at present

  17. Option to remove old Endpoints from web interface.

    It would be great to have an option to delete old Endpoints from the web interface. Sophos have to remote in to the backend to perform this at the moment but it would be a nice feature for the customer to have.
