  1. Email Notification

    Please allow SuperAdmins email notifications regarding AntiVirus or Malware regardless of whether it has been cleaned or not. When you allow the infection to be cleaned automatically this does not alert the super admin user of the infection. Having to search within the client console is inefficient and a bit of a tedious task. Real Time email alerting is very useful in larger networks and allows us to manage our staff.

    This will allow IT Admins to monitor and identify trends of User behavior and provide non technical people with awareness of guidelines to avoid any infection.

  2. Add back the boxes that indicates the number of High Medium and Low alerts.

    Add back the boxes that indicates the number of High Medium and Low alerts. Before 8/16/17 on the dash board you had the Alert Boxes the High Medium and Low. We liked this options felt that it gave a quick indications of what was going on.

  3. Can't change "The Sophos Central software on this computer has missed two updates." setting . This is overloading my ticket system

    Can't change "The Sophos Central software on this computer has missed two updates." setting . This is overloading my ticket system . If someone is offline it sends emails every 2 times it misses an update. compared to the amount of updates vs the amount of tickets overwhelming my helpdesk . Customers should have the right to adjust all alerting

  4. Control Updates Sophos Central

    Can we get some actual information on the control updates page? "Newest" and "Oldest" are terms that mean nothing to me or the rest of my team. The control updates page should give actual information on what version computers are currently on and what is available to update to. This feels like a half-baked feature at best.

  6. Active directory sync

    Sync AD devices to central console or sync deleted AD devices out of console, so we do not have to manually remove devices from sophoscentral console every time a device gets replaced in our environment.

  7. TPM State

    Since we can see TMP State on the client, why not have that same data present at Sophos Central. That way you can create a group from that value and have those machines encrypted.

  8. user is able to disable sophos servics from the safe mode. and if the services got disabled from the safe mode and then again entering in n

    we are using sophos central .user is able to disable sophos servics from the safe mode. and if the services got disabled from the safe mode and then again entering in normal mode the services are still remained disable which means no policy is working in system if the services got disabled in safe mode.
    Do some changes so that user will not get access to disable the services from safe mode.

  9. Deleted Computers List / Re-Add Deleted Computer option

    Currently if a PC is accidentally deleted from the console then Sophos must be re-installed.

    This is very time consuming as Tamper Protection must be disabled by booting into Safe mode, and then un-installing all of the Sophos services before re-installing again.

    If it was moved to a deleted computers list with the option of undeleting it, this would save hours and hours of work.

  10. Tamper Protection prompt when deleting endpoint for Central

    When removing devices from the Central dashboard, there should be a prompt to warn users about turning off Tamper Protection if it's enabled. This will stop users from having to bypass Tamper Protection via the registry.

  11. Don't show mac bootcamp as an available volume to encrypt

    Currently, if a Mac has bootcamp installed there is no way to encrypt both of those volumes, but Sophos continually marks the Mac computer as not being encrypted even though the main Mac volume is encrypted. There should be a way to either exclude the volume from requiring encryption, or if you detect a volume is labeled BOOTCAMP, like they almost always are, then you don't consider that a volume that can be encrypted. It ends up throwing us off when trying to reconcile the encryption on our machines, because there will be errors stating the machine is not encrypted.

  12. migration

    Problem: Migration utility (from SEC managed endpoints) works only in one rare situation for endpoint standard without firewall.

    Solution: Possibility to uinstall ALL features which are not in central like firewall and patch as a part of the migration process.

  14. Cryptoguard enabled as a "recommended setting" within server policies

    CryptoGuard is disabled when using "recommended settings" but CryptoGuard is a recommended setting by sophos.

    Could I request that we enable Cryptoguard when using recommended settings?

  15. Push installation of Sophos Agent from Sophos Central

    Please add the possibility to push out the Sophos Agent in the Domain from The Central Cloud. Maybe in the way to create a "Distribution Deploy Agent", this could be a single service on a machine inside the domain (admin PC or some small service on an existing server like wsus e.g.). Bitdefender uses something similar for there cloud console.

  16. Powershell Command for SEC and Sophos Central would be usefull for Reporting or Configuration

    Reporting in SEC is not really usefull as we all know.

    So let the Sysadmin's do it by themselve, like Microsoft(Office365) and Veeam offer

  18. The ability to set your own password for tamper protection in Central?

    In the cloud you are not able to set your own password for tamper protection? Administrators should be able to set their own tamper protection passwords.

    It states that it is available here: http://ideas.sophos.com/forums/285723-sophos-endpoint/suggestions/9818862-in-the-cloud-you-are-not-able-to-set-your-own-pass

    ...but it does not see that this feature is present.

  19. Sophos Central Device Control Policy

    Device Control Policy: add a input field for excluded devices for comments or description like in the on-premise SEC.
    This enhances usability and makes it easier to recap why devices have been exempted. Often this filed is used to add ticket IDs or similar .

  20. Log - Suppression, Thresholds and Client Re-registration tools

    Enable the ability to change the log thresholds for sending out alerts. We get way too many false positives where we get an alert, logon to the machine and the AV client does not show anything evidently wrong. And if there is something wrong there is no way to "know" of a certain component of the agent is or is not actually running. Missed updates are frustratingly repetitive. If a machine misses updates for say a week that might be a good threshold to notify on. But not just for a day. Also enable the option to disable some alerts…
