  1. Return back to same spot in the Devices page in SMC after drilling down for details on device

    While in the Sophos Mobile Console under Devices - admin needs more information and drills down on a device by clicking on the name of it. Once admin backs out into the list of devices they are brought back to the beginning of the list. For example drilling down in a device that is on page 18 and then backing out will return admin back to page 1…admin must go back to page 18 and find the name of the device to figure out where they left off.

  2. Make the Microsoft Intune enrollment process more intuitive

    This is for both iOS and Android devices.

    Once SMS is installed list a task on the home screen to remind the user that the device still needs to enroll in Microsoft Intune...similar to the warnings seen with an iOS device that is configured for supervised mode:

    "Sophos Mobile Security needs to connect to Microsoft Intune" or "Tap to connect to Microsoft Intune"

  3. Sophos icon to be displayed all the time

    In the Free version of Sophos Mobile Security, please add an option to toggle on or off the sophos icon (to be displayed) all the time when it is running in the background. Right now there is no setting available for the same.

  4. Mehrere Accounts auf einem Gerät/Multiple Accounts on one Device

    Es wäre super wenn man die Möglichkeit hätte auf einem Gerät mehrere Konten anzulegen. Wenn man das derzeit versucht wird beim bisherigen registrierten Benutzer in SMC das Gerät derigstriert und auf den neuen Benutzer registriert.
    Auf einem Samsung Galaxy Tab ist es z.B. Möglich unterschiedliche voneinander abgetrennte Nutzer anzulegen, die auch ihr eigenes Passwort sowie ihre eigene Umgebung besitzen. So können mehrere Benutzer ein Gerät benutzen.

    It would be great if you could register multiple Users in SMC on one device. If you try that in the recent Version, the device will be derigistered from the…

  5. Email Synchronisierungszeitraum Exchange Konto

    Es wäre sehr hilfreich wenn das SMC bei der Konfiguration eines Exchange-Kontos für den Sychronisierunszeitraum anstelle dem maximum von 1 Monat auch die in Android vorhandene Option "Alle" anbieten würde. Wir haben hier ca. 60 Geräte damit in der Verwaltung und haben immer wieder Klagen von den Benutzern das man gerne auch mal was in älteren Emails suchen wollen würde, aber man nicht kann weil ja immer die alten EMails so schnell verschwinden.
    Als richtigen Showstopper sehe ich das Setting auch nicht, in Zeiten von Mehrkernprozessoren, mehreren GB Arbeitsspeicher und 128 GB Flashspeicher zum speichern von Daten schafft es ein…

  6. Possibility to manage Samsung Galaxy Store Apps with Sophos Mobile

    On Samsung devices like Galaxy S10 some apps like Samsung calender and Samsung phone are not available as work app in the work profile. In such case you have to install 3rd-party apps or use the samsung phone app of the private profil for incoming and outcoming calls/sms. It would be great to have the option to install and manage Galaxy Store apps via Sophos Mobile.

  7. Possibility to block 2nd SIM-Card

    Nowadays its nearly hard to find Smartphones with single-sim. Therefore it would be great for me to be able to block the usage of a 2nd SIM-Card on a dual-sim smartphone.

  8. Compliance check for active SIM PIN

    Currently it's not possible to set up a compliance rule to check if the SIM card PIN is active or has been disabled. Please add a new rule for this.

  9. IOS embedded Icon on right corner when new messages

    I Android you can give the Sophos Mail App the privileges to show new messages with the embedded Icon on the right corner of the app. This is very comfortable when you swipe through your apps and you can see that new messages are arrived. This function is missing in IOS. Please add to next release!

    See: https://community.sophos.com/products/mobile/f/sophos-mobile-security-for-ios/114200/ios-notifications-don-t-work/410541#410541

  10. Sophos mobile antivirus for Amazon Fire8 tablet computer

    Vendor of the Fire8 tablet Amazon don't use the standard google app distribution method "play store" - instead there's Amazon own app marketplace and no easy way for users of the Fire8 tablet to access google play. Please put Sophos mobile security apps (version for android tablet devices) on Amazons own app store.

  11. Geräteauswahl für App installation (iOS) erweitern.

    Es wäre hilfreich die Suchliste für die App-Installation (Konfiguration/Apps/iOS) nach Auswahl der zu installierenden App zu erweitern um z.B. das Feld "Benutzer".
    Nach dem DEP-enrollment hat das Device den Namen <Modell>,<Serialnumber> und somit wird es schwer auf das iPad von Herrn Mayer eine App zu installieren ohne das man die nötigen Informationen vorher aus anderen Suchen zieht.
    (Man könnte den Devicenamen ändern, ja ich weiß. Aber das ist kein Zero-touch)

  14. email synchronisation period setting

    In Sophos Secure E-Mail you can set how long back e-mails should be synchronized. There is a choice:
    • 1 day
    • 3 days
    • 1 week
    • 2 weeks
    • 1 month
    • All

    For some users, 1 month is too short, but All makes a very large local SSE database, which leads to problems with the app.

    My suggestion would be to delete the selection 3 days and 2 weeks and instead take 3 months and 6 months.
    If that is not technically possible, at least the choice of 3 months would be very helpful.

  15. Add Office365 Check box to Container and Device Policies

    When developing a device or container policy for e-mail, after the initial configuration wizard, it would be helpful to have the same checkbox for "Office 365" for the mail server field akin to the initial setup wizard for Mobile so admin's don't have to remember the URL. (It's surprising how many don't recall it). Perhaps other platforms as well.

  16. Allow creating profiles for iPad Home Screens

    This feature has been out for years in other MDMs. We are forced to use other software to create/edit Home Screen layouts and import them into SMC.

    Please add this feature.

  17. Update iPads in one go

    When I want to update a fleet of iPads at the same time, I have to initiate the update task via SMC which only downloads the update to the device but won't install it just yet. I have to execute the update task a second time for the actual installation of the downloaded update to begin.
    I also cannot put 2 update tasks in a qeue or create a task bundle. The second task ONLY works if the update has already been downloaded through the previous update task.

    Suggestion: please give the SMC admin a choice to either only download…

  18. Search contacts with german umlauts

    You can not search your own contacts with the german umlauts (ä,ö,ü,...).
    The app will not find any results. When I then touch "Search in global Addressbook" the contacts will be found.
    Note: iOS App Version 7.85.3

  19. Device Name

    On Corporate owned devices, the device name that is set in Sophos Central should update to the phone. However, the user should not be able to change the name on the device.

  20. Increase size of Apple ipa file uploads

    Is it possible to increase the limit for upload of Apple ipa files?
    Current limit is set to 200MB, which is not sufficient for lots of iOS applications.
