Improve Application Control All-Over

I'd love if Sophos Application Control system, features, UI, etc ... Were similar to that of SonicWalls. If you take a look at a demo of their system, you'll see it's VERY feature-rich, with a very large array of different settings and such for applications. On top of that, they use an advanced method of identifying/classifying traffic using not only ports/protocols, but also application signatures and traffic patterns that applications use.

It would be great to see Sophos features improved over-all to properly compete with other solutions out there.

        Additionally, integrating a type of DPI (Deep Packet Inspection) scenario into App Control, capable of scanning SSL/TLS traffic and properly identifying/classifying them may be a great help, for unknown traffic patterns. Not sure if or how much Sophos already does something like this, but as I stated previously, there are competitor products out there that offer such solutions, which makes it more luxurious and attractive to admins and potential buyers.
