  2. Add Imation IronKey D250 Personal 4GB secure removable storage device to supported Device Control list

    We recently decided to move forward with using the Device Control feature. We have dozens of these devices distributed through the facility. I see the Enterprise and Basic version has already been cleared. Please add this one the Personal.

    Thanks in advance.

  3. Allow CD-writers to be exempted when using read only policy

    We want to have a read-only optical device policy to allow all CD-ROMs to be used but only allow CD-writers by exemption. When using the read-only mode, any attempted write events are not being reported on the client or to SEC/Central, so there are no device control events to select and exempt the CD-writer you want to authorise. The only workaround is to temporarily set the policy to the more restrictive 'blocked', at which point all previously blocked events are suddenly reported to SEC/Central, allowing it to be exempted, then the policy can be set back to read only. Clearly…

  4. Auto Scan of Removable Devices upon Plugging In

    Removable Devices should be scanned automatically upon plugging so that normal users can have a clean flash drive every time they use it.

  5. client

    Preventing windows domain users to tamper with settings. (even when tamper prevention is off) In our typical situation we have 15++ locations on mulitple locations on different continents / timezones. I can not provide a password everytime for clients when a Local support on site needs to switch the endpoint scanner on/off to trouble shoot.
    Other option make the tamper password 'fixed and adjustable and eassier sharable (amongst local support)'

  6. "Global" Exemptions (or better exempation by "Model")

    I have many "Integrated Cameras" that have been blocked after blocked MTP/PTP. I can exempt the Integrated Cameras by Model, but it only applies for 1 policy, which means I need to add them every policy. It also appears only appears to apply when the laptop model is the same as well, so I have to add "Integrated Cameras" for each different type of devices it has found on.

    We need to be able to exempt devices globally to that it applies to all matching peripherals of that type and on all policy.

  7. Device Control - Log All USB Connections

    We need to be able to log and report on all attempted USB device connections, whether successful or not, regardless if policy is being enforced or not. Currently, whenever the box marked 'detect, but do not block' is checked, you have the ability to report on all devices, but if the box is unchecked, and policy is set to allow all devices, you can't report on devices that successfully connected, only the blocked attempts are reportable. This needs addressed.

  8. EXPIRATION DATE ON EXEMPTED DEVICES

    Would like to request to add expiration date of exempted devices, with this feature expired devices will automatically block/disable access but must have logs on DB as to when it was blocked or removed. This feature will also minimize the number of unused exempted devices on the Device Control Access list and give ease compared to manually disabling the devices. This would be useful for added security as user will not be able to access the expired devices on time once indicated on the expiration details.

  9. Expand ID field in Peripheral Control to show full length Device ID and the user name

    Hello

    We would like to request a small feature, which consist of adding a Cologne (User/last user) to the Peripherals Exemption(s)
    We are blocking all secure removable storage and adding exemption(s) for the devices we deliver to our users, while adding the exemptions we can see which the last users that used it
    once we add the exemptions we cannot longer identify a device, and therefore we have no way to found out to whom the devices listed in the exemption(s) list belong, we can't remove a device from the list because there is no way to identified it, we…

  10. Prevent wallpaper change from web dashboard

    Give maintainer an option to prevent wallpaper changes even when user uses Windows 10 home where there isn't policy settings for that and regedit hack won't work ether.

    I know this isn't very commonly needed witth Sophos home version, but there are at least some short time periods when this is needed even at Home version. I really hope you can find a way to implement this and will include it already at beta (will definitely try beta immediatelly when this feature rolls out).

  12. Add usb card reader to device control

    we have bank provided usb gemalto card readers which are not in the list and can't be added as an exemption so would like these added.

    This is the ClassGUID and Class for this device:

    <Value Name="ClassGUID" Type="REG_SZ" Data="{50dd5230-ba8a-11d1-bf5d-0000f805f530}" />
    <Value Name="Class" Type="REG_SZ" Data="SmartCardReader" />

    If you look at the following Microsoft article this matches the classification specified:

    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff553426(v=vs.85).aspx
    Smart Card Readers
    Class = SmartCardReader
    ClassGuid = {50dd5230-ba8a-11d1-bf5d-0000f805f530}
    This class includes smart card readers.

  13. Expand ID field in Peripheral Control to show full length Device ID

    In Central Reports and Device Control Exemption Lists, currently the full length Device ID is not shown. Even on mouse over, not all ID Data is visible in Central. On the Endpoint, the full ID Data is visible on mouse-over.

    Some USB removable media have long Identical Device ID with only a difference at the end. Currently, we can not identify the device in Central.

    Please make the ID field expandable in Central and store all data from the Endpoint in Central so that exemptions can be set specificylly without trial and error.

  14. Change the default selected option when viewing a Device Control policy

    When attempting to add an exemption via a Device Control policy, it defaults to the 'Floppy drive' option but does not showing that this option has been selected. When you then click the 'Add exemption...' button it sets the 'Device type:' filter to 'Storage/Floppy Drive', and greys the filter out so that it can't be changed.
    This is not very intuitive, and causes customers to believe that the Event Viewer is simply not finding any Device Control events. If possible it would be better for it to, by default, set the filter to 'All', which is currently how it works…

  15. Add Manual Exemptions and Use of Wildcards into Device Control for Removable Devices

    On Device Control you can only add devices that are in the Add Exempt List but what if you have a company with thousands of devices could we not add a wildcard for devices ?

  16. Instant Unauthorized Device Alerts

    I would like to be instantly alerted when a user attempts to use an unauthorized device on the network such as a flash drive or mobile phone. Having to wait until the next day to see the attempt on a report is not providing us with a fast enough response time to eliminate a possible threat.

  17. Azure Intergration

  20. Suppress Wireless Bridge Access Blocked Notification

    On OSX, on a device controlled client, going from wireless to wired connection creates a message indicating that the wireless bridge has been blocked. This can be annoying for an end user that goes between wireless and wired connections. We still want the bridge to be blocked, but it would be great if we could suppress the warning.
