  1. 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 ?

  2. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Endpoint encryption of USB devices.

    It would be more helpful if there was a way to manage multiple keys when you need to encrypt USB drives with multiple clients. You do not want to use the same key/password for all USB devices, which is the default. You need to go into each file and change the key used if you want it to be something else. A prompt when putting in the USB, after you say Yes to encrypt, that asks for which password would be helpful. Maybe an option that turns the prompt on and off based your needs.

  8. Sophos Mobile Control

    Upon the installation of Sophos Mobile, there is a point where you are asked if you want to turn ON location and the choice is either “Never” or “Always”. This should NOT be
    an option, when it comes to corporate own products, it should be “Always” by default on a Cell phone. Can your development please update the app or generate another installation with that setting enabled by default and grayed out.

  9. More Granular Device Control

    Currently, we block all removable storage unless permitted by exemption. We would like to turn on device control for MTP/PTP but we cannot do so in the same policy unless we block it the same way as our removable storage. Please make Device Control more granular so that I can choose to block certain device types entirely, while still enabling me to detect but NOT block others (such as MTP/PTP). I want to be able to detect MTP/PTP for a few weeks to see what devices are being used before I block them.

  11. Log exempted USB devices

    With the Enterprise Console version of the product, when a device control policy is enforcing blocks and allowing exemptions, the exempted devices do not show up in the device control logs.

    Please add the option to log exempted devices.

  12. I would like to request your team to add the selection of groups/container upon exemption on Device Control Policy. This will give ease on

    I would like to request your team to add the selection of groups/container upon exemption on Device Control Policy. This will give ease on tedious process we have right now in which we will have to access each group policy and exempt the same device. On the email sent earlier, I have attached sample image, hope you can consider adding that to your features not only on device control policy but also to other policies that may apply the same for easier management.

  14. Prevent user from disable or terminate the Sophos services

    We have implemented device control on the network. However, the services of current version of Sophos Endpoint Security and Control (10.3) can be easily terminated by local Administrator users. This is painful for those non AD environment. It will be great if Sophos can consider to release patches or newer version of AV to prevent user from doing this.

  15. Ability to Block USB Printers

    The ability to Block USB printers from being connected to corporate devices. This puts HIPAA data at risk by allowing the user to print data on non- approved devices.

  19. Device Control on Servers

    Sophos Cloud use to have device control on Windows servers. Please add this back in, it's important to reduce the threat surface area of systems, especially servers.

    Glue in the USB ports only goes so far!
