  1. Prevent deletion of SMC app

    Users are able to delete the Sophos Mobile Control app on their iOS and Android devices. When this happens I'm no longer able to push policy's and tasks to the devices.

    It would be very helpfull if I could prevent the deletion of the app SMC.

  2. WiFi/Geo Fence on Device

    I would like to see the ability to WiFi/Geo fence a device that isn't using containers AND alert/lock the device when outside the fence.

    I'm new to Sophos, it's the MDM platform used by my vendor, where I use Meraki (which has this feature). Unfortunately, I can't use 2 MDM profiles on iPads, so i'm stuck with the lack of securing corporate devices with Sophos.

    Also, I notice the container fence for WiFi uses SSID instead of WAN IP's. This leaves a security hole where it's easy to get the passphrase from existing WPA2 profiles, and just recreate the SSID…

  3. Support PerAppVPN configuration for built-in iOS VPN client

    As of iOS 9 the built-in iOS VPN client also supports Per-App-VPN.
    It would be good to be able to configure this within Sophos Mobile Control.

  4. Location on iOS even if the app isn't in the app switcher

    Currently the location on iOS devices works only if the Control is open in the app switcher.

    Is the location possible/supported with the Control closed but with the correct settings in "Settings > Privacy > Location Services" and "Settings > General > Background App Refresh"?

  5. Make WIFI MAC randomization settings configurable

    Android 10 and Apple iOS 14 devices use randomized MAC addresses when connecting to wireless networks to provide privacy for users.
    Within most vendors NAC (Network Access Control) products and many network components, the MAC address is considered to be the unique identifier for a given endpoint.
    Due to the MAC address randomization, this one-to-one mapping is no longer true and a single endpoint could end up generating multiple endpoint entries within the mentioned NAC solutions.

    The next sections show how MAC address randomization is implemented on mobile endpoints:
    Google Android 10
    * Randomization is enabled by default.
    * When…

  7. Force iOS device name via profile

    Apple iOS:
    We would like to force specific device names to the mobile phones and tablets based on variables (e.g. "iPhone%SERIALNUMER%" or "iPad%USERNAME%) and these names have to be forced by the server so a user is unable to change it.

    Currently only the the other way round is possible: allow the user to change the name (better said: do not forbid to change the name) and switch SMC server to synchronize the local name.

    Changing the device name (for supervised devices) by the MDM system is supported by Apple so I do not see any problems from…

  8. 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.

  10. Proper push notifications on IOS secure email

    It would be really helpful tobe able to recieve proper push notifications on IOS. We can choose now to use application notifications, or 'real' push notifications. Both don't work like a normakl push notification.
    We'd like to recieve a normal push notofication with preview lines. (also when de application is not in background)

  11. Device with Container Apps and Mail App

    For a device (with MDM management) which is connected via the container application "Secrure Email" with the Exchange, we noticed the following. The end user can still connect to the Exchange through the regular e-mail client. Is it possible that we can ban a connection to our Exchange Server through the regular mail app?
    A ban over a EAS is not possible because we have COPE with and without containers and BYOD.

  12. Corporate Browser - allow all sites

    Allow users to go where they want (not only pre-defined URLs).

    It's good in combination with Proxy in Corporate Browser (https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/143212-sophos-mobile/suggestions/32267755-corporate-browser-proxy)

  14. Default Dual Calendars option

    We have the Exchange calendars where if the person has more than 1 calendar it shows their calendars in the app. But when they create new meetings they typically create it in 1 calendar. But it has chosen their other not used as much calendar as the default one it post to. Thus it does not show on their most used calendar. We can not choose a default calendar to post to. Right now it chooses for us.

  15. Spell Check in iOS App

    The Spell Check feature is pretty awful. You can go back and highlight your mistakes and the app will suggest the proper spelling. Doing it inline using the iOS settings/style would be much better. Autocomplete and spell check should be basic functionality.

  18. Disabling Notifications

    On behalf of a customer:

    They would like to remove certain notifications for App-Block.

    Currently one can change the setting for all notifications.

    Settings -->Application Manager ---> Sophos Mobile Control and unchecking the show notifications box.

    Doing so would disable all notifications.

    For an effective App-Block Sophos has already stated a need to ensure that the Process is not killed by a task manager.
    Due to the sticky notification the process needed cannot be killed effectively.

    Another advantage is that the user does not forget about the block.
    E.g.: the blocked app is installed 6 months after the app was…
