Enable Install on Linux
Please make it possible to install SMC on a Linux machine. Several customers do not feel comfortable with security software running on a Windows machine. Some even have policies to not allow Windows machines in their DMZ, so a Linux version would be highly appreciated.
Inline with Sophos strategy, we focus on a delivery of the functionality out of Sophos Central. For this reason, we will not extend the platforms for the on-premise installation. I kindly ask for your understanding
From the looks of it, this is a JBOSS application, so it should (teorethically) run under Linux with minor changes.
Please SOPHOS, give this feature a serious look.
Not only will we be able to spare some money on Windows licenses, you can make it much easier to deploy (OVF) and much more secure.
