  1. 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.

      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.

      • 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.

          • Uninstall Sophos from endpoints via the Sophos endpoint console

            At the time we install Sophos Central EndPoint Protection solution on existing endpoint, it was impossible to uninstall existing Trend micro Worry Free solution automatically. it is a widely distributed solution, it will be interesting to add automatic uninstall of Trend Micro in Sophos Central Endpoint product.

            • Support scheduled scans with Sophos Home Premium

              Hopefully I'm just missing something but I can't find a way to schedule daily scan with Sophos Home Premium other than creating a Windows Task. This seems like a very basic endpoint security feature and was previously supported by the free version of Sophos.

              • whitelist

                I've certain sites "old style" that need to download a windows executable in the browser cache, basically without user intervention. To be clearer, I mean in a "hidden" way. I would like to let user to download THIS executable from THIS site without showing any warning from antivirus. The problem is that user can't see the sophos warning that "organization discourage executable download" because the download is hidden, and so the app fail. It's a feature that is in some way similar to that already existing in sophos that let execution of executable if located in a specifical folder. See…

                • Central licensing with TSE

                  When a user uses an account to log on his workstation and the same user on the same workstation uses another account to log on a TSE session, Sophos Central counts 2 licenses. It would be interesting to count only one license.

                  • Machines not being able to contact Sophos Central

                    Can the App Dev Team write or come with a script to where when a client machine has been accidentally removed from Sophos Central and the client cannot contact central that the script can uninstall client and or remove tamper protection from the client machine which in turns allow the IT Admin to reinstall the client over again so the machine can communicate with Central again. The process you all have now is time consuming especially If the client machine is at a remote site and the IT Admin is not in front to the machine to perform its administrative…

                    • Allow CPU % limiting for Sophos Processes

                      Give the ability in Sophos Central to limit CPU usage for Sophos overall. This would apply to scheduled scanning as well as any process that is using high CPU at login. I want these things still happen but be less noticeable to users.

                      • Enable tamper protection control via policy

                        Currently via Sophos Central you can either disable tamper protection for a whole organisation, or individually per machine. I would like tamper protection to be controlled via a policy so that I can specify a certain department or group of users that can have tamper control disabled.

                          • Datenschutz deaktiviert

                            It seems to be quite unlucky to me that an endpoint with installed, but inactive "device encryption" shows the user the red Alarm sign ""Datenschutz deaktiviert" (german language Version).
                            This should only appear with an active "device encryption" policy. We have to tell the users to ignore this warning. I am afraid, this teaches them to ignore any warning by Sophos.

                              Sophos Client Firewall (SCF) version 3.0 and higher: Checksum control:-

                              The firewall can detect and report that the check sum of an application has changed (e.g. after an update) and log it in the log file.

                              Why can it not display the old checksum + date and new checksum + date for user acceptance as it was done previously prior to version 2.9 of the firewall.

                              After acceptance by the user the next execution instance of the application it will be allowed by the firewall.

                                • Group/Ungroup

                                  New Group/Ungroup feature on Alerts in Sophos Central - would like to see an option to set which option is available by default or have the setting I choose stick. Currently every time I click on Alerts it Groups the alerts and I'd much prefer to have the Alerts UnGrouped since we don't really get that many alerts to make Grouping them necessary. It's getting really annoying to have to click the button to ungroup the alerts 15 times a day, when the option I choose should really stick.

                                  • Force Uninstall Utility

                                    A support tech told me awhile back that you may be working on a utility to forcefully remove the software and all of its relevant registry keys, folder structure, services, etc. I think this should be made a priority as it seems we are constantly uninstalling and reinstalling only to have the same problems after reinstalling.

                                    Your KB article for a manual uninstall is insufficient.

                                    • Disable updating notifications for Safeguard endpoints

                                      There is no option in SafeGuard to disable the updating notification for Sophos SafeGuard on endpoints. We would like the option to disable updating notification for the safeguard product so these events are not seen on the endpoint.

                                        • Bring back the ability for standard users to schedule scans on Mac

                                          After the February 2018 update, standard users on macs lost the ability to schedule scans for themselves. This means that my department now have to set up a dozen scan preferences in the admin console since we have people working 24/7 across hundreds of computers and whenever a particular computer is not in use varies considerably.

                                          It would be a lot easier for all concerned if we can go back to one scheduled scan and letting users pick another convenient time like when they are at lunch.

                                          The ability to schedule scans was one reason we picked Sophos since most…
