  1. Offline Installation

    It would be nice for Sophos to have an offline installation. A number of remote sites in my case have very poor internet connectivity and having the installation files download during the installation process is tedious and unsuccessful in some cases.

  2. Uninstaller

    When there is problem with Endpoint, and reinstall is needed, after uninstall, there is lot of registry keys, and files left on the system. On some cases, i have to grab 3rd party tool to remove registry keys. It would be really helpful for us (aspecially in large enviroments), to have complete uninstaller. Something, that get rid of everything, all files, all registry keys, so i can do clean installation.
    Thanks in advance for your feedback.

  4. Warning for pending reboot after Exploit Prevention updates

    Every time Exploit Prevention has an update, each computer ends up in the "Computers with Errors" field, because it needs a reboot. You can't acknowledge them to remove them from that list, and they won't be removed until they reboot. We try not to reboot our users computers unless we have a scheduled maintenance.
    It would be nice if there was a distinction between an Error and a "reboot needed"

    I check that report to see when computers are legitimately having problems, so when every computer appears in that list after an update, it kind of defeats the purpose.

  5. Control Retention Time/Size for logs stored on endpoints.

    It would be helpful to be able to specify the length of time or the maximum size of logs stored on endpoints, so that we can plan for storage requirements, rather than them growing indefinitely.

  6. Endpoint Protection - show last login/update

    I'd really like it, if under Computer Management -> Manage Computers, it show the last update/login date of the computers in the list.
    This way it would be easier to keep track of old systems that are no longer updating.
    I'm sure that this also would be useful in the full version, for administrators to keep track of systems that are no longer using/need licences.

  7. Mac .DMG install package..desperately needed.

    Installation on Thousands of Mac's is practically impossible with an app installer. Why would you not give a .dmg install pachage that could be sent out via MDM solutions such as JAMF Casper or others? We can not rely on thousands of end user, in our case students from grade 5-12th to run through an install package. If we had known this beforehand, Sophos would not have been considered...

  8. MFA

    Currently, when enabling the setting to require MFA for all admins, it breaks the AD Sync tool. The only way around this is to manually add Admins to the list required to use MFA. This is a potential security issue as it is easy to forget to do this. I would like to see a feature added where MFA can be set to required for all admins, but the ability to add an exception for instances such as the account used for AD Sync. Thanks

  9. Put a PAUSE / Stop button on the Central Endpoint scans!

    Put a PAUSE button on the Central Endpoint scans! When it is scanning it makes using the computer next to impossible with high resource usage. All applications are slow to respond, if at all. Sometimes need to use the computer during a scheduled scan--no choice now but to Cancel the scan. Unfortunately Sophos has not provided an option to rescue his work. All other antivirus and anti-malware software have PAUSE buttons. Why not Sophos? Sophos theme is security made simple. So pls do not complicate. Need a button pls.

  10. Fix the Running malware in quarantine or cleanup failure indicator in Sophos Central

    We're constantly having hosts that have a status of red because Sophos is falsely reporting that "Running malware in quarantine or cleanup failure" Can we fix this or have an automated process to delete the events.db?

  11. block all users from being able to install any software on their company computers using Sophos Intercept X advanced

    It would be nice to be able to block all users from being able to install any software on their company computers using Sophos Intercept X advanced...just the same way we have server lockdown in Intercept X for servers, kindly do the same to Sophos endpoint.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. We need the ability to force the reboot of a computers from the enterprise console.

    more than half the tickets I get from our enterprise console are the need for reboots, please reconsider adding this feature and/or read the comments from other frustrated users of your software. Or even offer the ability to force a reboot after 1 week. Something besides sticking your head in the sand.

  16. Make Malware Removal More Powerful

    Sophos is really good at finding malware, but not so good at cleaning it up. Half the time it requires, "Manual Cleanup." If it had better/more powerful removal capabilities, that would be fantastic.

    Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) Scan is method for using known standards to run vulnerability and compliance scans. This allows the user to evaluate and secure their systems.

  18. Web Control

    It would be nice to configure Web Control Policies based on the Computer Group or a Computer as Type instead of only Users, for example a Laptop that is not only in use in the company but also used at home for private use.

  20. Reboot Required Updates

    We have been seeing alot of reboot required on our systems/servers in the environment, with a message that computer is not protected. I understand that updates do require an update from time to time to update the software on the systems, but confused about why we are seeing these so frequently? Is there a way to set groups to have the software schedule a reboot at a certain time for a group of computers and then prompt (with popup), or reboot on logoff for the others by default action (with the exception of servers). This is just making me worried…
