  1. Block single peripheral, whilst allowing all by default

    In Sophos Central, you can block all peripherals by default - and then have an allow list

    You can't do it the opposite way round, where you allow all devices and just have a block list.

    When trying to create a Peripheral Exemption to Block a device, with the default being Allow, it says that "Exemptions cannot be stricter than global settings."

    This mean that for a particular customer, we have to Allow around 300 USB devices just to block a singular device which a user brought in with malicious content on.

    It would be good to just block a…

    • Excessive requests to reboot endpoint clients in the Sophos Enterprise Console.

      It seems that the higher up the ladder that the user is, the harder it is to get them to reboot. The disruption that closing their many, many, multi-tasking windows left open as project or task placards, makes it extremely difficult for them to pick up where they left off.

      Then a week after I had convinced all of my users to reboot for an update, I had another warning in the console to reboot all of the clients again.

      And now two weeks later, I have a new warning to reboot the endpoint users for Hitman.

      If we keep…

      • Uninstall and Repair Endpoints via Sophos Enterprise Console

        The uninstall and repair options via console would make it easier to manage a large number of machines, mainly because sometimes it is difficult to get access to some of them.

        • Third party Software

          We suggest you to add the capability to do Vulnerability and Patch management for 3rd party software too, as some other competition AV software do.

          OS & 3rd party software installation
          Automates the creation, storage & cloning of system images – to save you time whenever your business needs to roll out new systems or update software on existing systems.

          • Remote sdu

            It would be helpful to be able to start an SDU through Sophos central instead of having to connect to the computer in question and start one.

            • Sophos Central Send Reports to Cloud (Sharepoint\Dropbox\Box\AWS...)

              Currently, Event Reports only do 6 months of reports and gets sent via email.
              I would love to generate .pfd's of all my reports but our attachment limit via email is 10MB

              Could you not allow or link a URL to a Sharepoint\Dropbox\Box\AWS cloud storage share?
              Sign in verify the user login then collect reports there.

              • Indication on the Sophos Icon by the time if a computer requires a reboot to complete update

                When Sophos requires a restart of the computer to complete an update it would be really good if the sophos icon by the time changed to a yellow exclamation mark or something so the end user would know to notifiy system administrator that Sophos needed attention. Or they could just restart the computer.

                • lockdown

                  would be nice to be able to see more lockdown events than 24 hours and also to be able to search/filter by date range. Also, why cant we get email alerts when lockdowns happen?

                  • Enterprise Admin to Control the Sub Estate License

                    Hi, I would like to request a feature in a Sophos Enterprise Admin whereby, the Enterprise Admin are able to assign how many licenses are required for each sub estate.

                    For Example:

                    I have 250 licenses with 5 different sub-estate. So, as the Enterprise Admin, i can limit the license or control the license for each sub-estate by giving 50 licenses. And each sub-estate, when they are given 50 licenses, they can not simply take/use other sub-estate licenses.

                      For Sophos Web Control, could we have warning windows pops up for https websites which fall into the warn web usage category? Currently warning windows will pop up for http websites which fall into the warn web usage category only.

                      • Deletion Infected Archive File

                        Dear Concern,

                        If any kind of malicious content in any archive file that should delete all archive file from system, rather extract and clean only infection admin should have that setting on Cloud portal where admin will decide to delete infected archive.

                            Even though folder exclusions recommended by Microsoft for Exchange Server 2016 are added to the Automatic exclusion list added to the servers, the recommended Exchange Server 2016 processes are not being added by Sophos Central. Would suggest to add those and the file extensions also.

                            • Sophos Home Premium for Linux

                              Sophos Home Premium is only available for Windows, why not for Linux and Macs. There are a large amount of Linux users that would value a Premium license for Linux home users. Not sure how secure is the free version of Sophos Linux AV. I'm sure users of Home Premium would valus te ability to see their Linux devices in the Sophs Home portal.

                                When a PC has the Endpoint Protection Client deployed via Sophos Cloud, if the client has issue or is out of date, there is no visual prompt on the Sophos shield icon in the notification area. You have to open the client and then click about, to see when a client last updated.

                                When we used to use Sophos Enterprise Console, the Sophos icon in the notification area would have a red cross overlaying the icon, notifying the user of a problem

                                • Give the user *some* kind of indication that a restart is required

                                  I'm getting multiple *Medium* level notifications per week about sophos endpoint clients that are "out of date". I now know, after two weeks of interactions with sophserv tech support that the issue has (and continues to be) that many computer users don't restart their computer because they don't have to, and the endpoint security client sometimes requires it, but doesn't tell them. They would happily do it if they knew it was necessary, but because it's not, I get pounded with multiple *Medium* level notifications per week indicating that their clients are out of date. This is super annoying, and …

                                  • Tamper Protection for Sophos Home

                                    I just want Tamper Protection to be implemented into Sophos Home products. I suggest this because I have recently found out that all Sophos home modules can be terminated just by using Task Manager. This tells me that Sophos Home can be easily disabled by anyone, including unwanted attackers and malware.

                                    • Create a way to uninstall Hitman Pro from servers using the Sophos Central console.

                                      Since Hitman Pro was part of an update to sophos server protection, we have had issues with utilization being high on the servers. Would like to be able to uninstall Hitman Pro without affecting the other server protections provided by sophos central.

                                      • Email scheduled event reports for Sophos Central

                                        Sophos Console was able to email a monthly report of all or specific events. I would like this same feature in Sophos Central.

                                          We need the Sophos Central to generate Auto reports on Daily/Weekly basis like it used to generate on ON Premise Server
