  1. 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.

    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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Central console sorting and searching

    The console would be about 5,273,618 times more useful (roughly speaking) if the tables were sortable by all columns, not just by name.

    And almost equally useful would be to have search fields be able to search in the middles of strings (with or without wildcards), not just from the beginnings.

  9. 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

  10. 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?

  11. Customizing setup link sent through email

    The ability to customize the components in the download link sent to the end user through Central would be nice. Not everyone wants Intercept-x or encryption, and having to go to Endpoint - Computers - Manage is unneeded steps.

  12. Automatic Exclusion for Exchange 2016

    Add the automatic exclusion template for Exchange 2016.
    And if possible also for Active Directory, Citrix.

  13. 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 .

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. Customize Admin Roles

    Now in the new UI you can assign to a user an admin role. However you cannot decide if that admin will receive notifications ( for example ). Would be great if you can create your own profiles or you can edit some existing role settings.

  17. Sophos Central: Link Policy Violators Direct to People

    From the Sophos Central main Dashboard you get a nice big number showing the policy violations that have been blocked, so you click on the number and it then produces a list of "Violators" and their corresponding "Top 5 Violations" categories.

    Currently we have to manually go to People and search for these violators, but surely the capability should exist to just make the violator name (DOMAIN\username) a hyperlink that when you click it, it takes you directly to that person's status page, instead of having to go via People, search, click?

    Wouldn't be too onerous i am sure as…

  18. Filter Events out of the Dashboard and Reports

    Need a way to tag categories to filter them out from being shown on the Dashboard and Reports.

    For example in Web Filtering the category Advertisements causes literally hundreds of thousands of entries to be generated within our system. These entries don't matter, We want them blocked, but don't need to see them in the reports normally. So many of these entries get generated that the dashboard (Web Stats Section) and reports are completely useless because we can't find the important data as it is completely drowned out by redundant entries about blocked advertisements. Our Dashboard as example is currently…

  19. Sophos cloud should include granular email notifications rather than emailing all administrators

    Sophos Cloud should include granular email notifications rather than emailing all administrators when an alert occurs. For example, we email our alerts into ServiceNow, but due to the "email all administrators" approach we get a duplicate of the Sophos alert and the ServiceNow ticket. Also, we have administrators that don't need alerting, so we should be able to check them off.

  20. Migration existing Central client to MSP

    Rather than having to rip and redeploy when a client is already in Central with a termed license to get them under the MSP program, it would make sense to be able to move them as a partner from our dashboard or even better just change the license type and not change anything else
