  1. Endpoint Report

    Would suggest Sophos can let us customize the report by ourselves instead of using their template.

  3. Sophos Home Beta - "Reboot for Update" Notification - Disable or Mute

    Today I've got an update notification that told me to reboot to complete the update. Although I usually don't mind this, it threw me out of the game I was playing (full screen, DirectX 12 application). I clicked "remind me later" and went back into the game. This happened again after around 30 minutes and I decided to just leave the message there, which fixed the issue of the game being minimized.

    Although a reboot seems to be required for certain updates it would be nice to be able to disable or mute the message - or that it does…

  6. Sophos Outlook Plugin

    We looking to block our users to click on hyperlinks within Outlook, so they'll have the option only to copy the link and paste it onto web browser. Is Sophos Outlook Add-in capable of doing that? Beside to reporting spam to Pure Message. Do Sophos have any apps, tools which can help us achieve this?
    Also is it possible for Outlook Add-in to send a web link to Sophos central for checking if it safe to open and then to report to our users if it is safe or it is a bad link; example here is like VirusTotal scanning…

  9. Creation of Virtually Private Machines for 0 day protection

    Traditional information assurance techniques for guarding against surreptitious download and exploitation of malware focus on: (1) recognition and correction of vulnerabilities to unauthorized remote access around firewalls and password barriers; (2) detection and removal of known implementations of malware, either before or after they have been downloaded; or (3) early detection of, and response to, indicators of activities of insider threats. The combination of these approaches leaves open the vulnerabilities to unauthorized access for download of new malware/attack media that haven’t been recognized or unauthorized use by persons with access to a virtual private network.

    One means of addressing this…

  10. Silence Endpoint Application Control Notifications on client machine

    Running Sophos on MacOS Office environment. Apple Mail is blocked and keeps generating messages on client machines. There should be an option to silence Application Control messages on client machines, so end user's don't constantly see that an app is blocked. (it gets really annoying)

    If an application gets blocked there should be an option to notify the user or to just block the application silently.

  11. Add eDirectory Support for Syncing Users & Groups

    Please consider adding Micro Focus(formerly Novell) eDirectory(NDS) support. We have attempted to use the AD Sync utility for this without We have customers running native eDirectory and DSFW environments who would benefit tremendously from having group synchronization to eliminate the manual management of group membership and policy assignment in Sophos Central. eDirectory is still very popular in many school systems internationally.

  13. Generate md5sum or sha256sums for all Sophos downloads

    Our support case [#6921523] highlights this particular issue, in that there is no way to verify downloads from Sophos as being complete. We had an installation of Sophos Endpoint Protection, which despite being unpacked and installed was inhibiting problems. The solution was downloading again and clean installation.

    Had there been md5sums or sha256sums available for the downloads, I could have verified the download, if the checksum had matched, I would know that everything was successful.

    It would have saved all the time and effort, than opening a case which took a few days to find out it wasn't to do…

  14. for on access scan exclusions, %username% as variable

    I moved into the problem to exclude a specific folder in the user Profile of all our Notebook users.
    Right now it is not possible to exclude folders like:
    c:\users\%username.......
    this should be a common issue, due to the fact, that some programms need exclusions there: for example our mail archivieving system uses this folder to prevent user data in the responsible user profile and in some cases it's slowing down the system

  15. Anti Virus Schedule Weekly or Monthly

    Add an option to scan (besides daily at certain time) weekly of monthly. Some scans on large drives take a whole day and don't need to be scanned weekly but rather 2 weekly or monthly.

  16. Allowing savservice to start delayed or have the updates check non running services more frequently

    Sophos Endpoint. We have had issues with savservice freezing the PC after login. If the savservice could be started automatically but delayed that would solve our problem. Currently we have savservice set to manually start. An hour after login the update feature checks to make sure all services are running and if not savservice gets started. If admistrators could CHANGE the time frame from and hour down to a few minutes. We wouldn't have a system on our network unprotected for an hour after restart.

  17. Add option that forces full system scans after scheduled start is missed

    Hi,

    we've Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.3 running in a very large and distributed environment (3000+ machines). Not all of our computers do run at the time we configured a scheduled scan - as there are people that e.g. work only 4 days a week. Sophos AV currently don't care - so we've a lot of machines that does not meet our compliance requirements.

    Would it be possible to add an administrative option like 'Run task after scheduled start is missed'?

    BTW: Such an option even exists Windows Task Scheduler - so it cant be hard to create and…

  19. Ping Request for computers

    Ping request feature for those environments whose AD hasn't been cleaned of old computer accounts. This way you'll know which PCs wont be able to connect because they're offline and can fix the issue before applying the AV or Patch, saving time in troubleshooting.

  20. manually set the global size limit to reject messages larger than

    for sophos email appliance
    allow the admin to either select a predefined global size limit to reject messages greater than xxMB size or manually set a limit, the predefined limits between 2-50MB doesn't suit all business requirements.
