  2. Turbo-Mailer

    The application Turbo-Mailer is a program used to mass-send emails. This has been used maliciously in the past and should be added to the list of applications capable of being blocked.

  4. Whitelisting applications for application control instead of blacklisting

    Currently the SAV console allows for app blacklisting, it would be good to see a feature for blacklisting aswell. i.e. the give a list of applications which are allowed to run, rest can be blocked by default.

    We have list of 250+ applications being used by the teams, I would like to see if we can have option to only allow the ones that are authorized, rest are blocked.

  6. Publish (or provide a way to export) a searchable index of all controlled appliactions.

    This list should also include all pertinent details (i.e. category, date added to control, etc.). Within the SEC, if you don't know what category the application is listed under, you can spend a long time clicking and hunting for a specific application. This makes it extremely time-consuming to build custom, fine-grained policies or to quickly answer questions on what is allowed and not.

  8. In App Control: Office Suites - Can you add the Older versions prior to Office 2003?

    In App Control: Office Suites - Can you add the Older versions prior to Office 2003?

    We've recently been getting phishing attacks via email and they are containing older word attachments.

    We would greatly appreciate it if we could block those ancient versions of Office in our Policy instead of worrying if our users are going to open those attachments.

  10. Add additional colums to the reporting file

    My application Control report does not indicate which applications are blocked. Please add a column for Application Control Group and the current status, Blocker or Authorized, for individual applications.

  11. To add additional programs from launching i.e OS Sierra

    Users who are administrators on their Devices (Macs in this case) have the ability to upgrade to the latest OS released by Mac (or install any program they want on their systems).

    Is there away to add a custom Application Control to block certain Applications from launching?

  12. We need a Sophos - Rule for selective Macro using. As an Example, we have to disable all the Macros, but not some local own Macros!

    We need a Sophos - Rule for selective Macro using. As an Example, we have to disable all the Macros, but not some local own Macros!
    The Problem is, if you disable the Macros within a GPO, the Excel Functions/Macros don't run anmore. Your own VBA used for Outlook as an Example can't be run oder selfcertificated.
    We would like to have control like the Hardware Control for the USB - Sticks as an Example!
    Best regards Juergen Linder

    Under Review  ·  Karl responded

    We discussed this when developing the application control policy for Sophos Central managed endpoints. At the time we decided to maintain feature parity with on-premise managed endpoints (SEC). While this capability is not available it is on our short list but does not appear on any planned delivery timelines at the moment. We evaluate and prioritize enhancements for the product multiple times per year.

  14. App Control creation of white and blacklists compared to adware and pua

    It would be helpful if the list of applications is not only given by categories.
    Like by adware or pua the possibility to detect applications that are added to a custom list where you can decide to allow or prohibit the single application.
    After the detection mode you would change to blocking mode where the black/white listings will be enforced.

  16. Cloud application control what isn't in compliance

    I get alerts that say "Policy non-compliance: Application Control".
    This information isn't useful, I need to know which application isn't in complacence, so that I can decide if I need to unblock it or uninstall the software.

  17. Setting Application Exemptions per device

    I'd like to request a way to allow an application to run on a single machine without moving the machine to its own folder, creating a new policy, etc…
    This feature would be ideal when we have one-off applications that we don’t want to allow all people to use.

  18. App Control list

    I would like to be able to extract the effective block/allow actions on Application Control. I plan to have 5 different policies and would need an export of each one for management approval. I see no way to do this currently, except to click through each group setting.
