  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. Webgateway - Block things on Corporate LAN, but allow on other networks

    Would like an option to have web gateway block certain types of high bandwidth traffic when on the corporate network, but allow it on other networks.

    For example: Netflix. I don't want users to be watching netflix on their laptop when at the office, but not concerned when they are at a hotel or at home.

    I have some update caches in my network. Could they could be turned into beacons so that sophos web gateway can tell what network it is on?

  5. I need to be able to initiate a clean reinstall with XML file

    I would like to be able to initiate a clean reinstall where the app clears it's AV database, and re-downloads from a known good source, even a specified source be it cloud based, SAV Management server, or SAV Cache server. Initiating a re-install from a cloud source or from the local system with a signed XML file is desireable, as well as being able to do so silently with a management system like SCCM or JAMF (requires an option to do this silently from the command line).

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. Sophos Central

    In politics "Application control" to add a list, if you arrive 30 minutes after setting the applications you happen to accidentally click outside the window you lose all the work. It would be nice just could close this window giving the "Cancel" or "Save" button. Thank you!

  10. Detail if detection was based on Read / Write or Rename Process

    Detailing in a detection was triggered by a read / write or rename process assists in determining the impact and source of an infections, it also assist in the cleanup and quite often cleanup is not available due to the file never being written to the disk

  12. SAV for Linux: stop checking "/tmp/rectm*.* by default

    Many Linux use recoll as a search database/indexing tool.
    Problem: when recoll (updates its database there are many tmp files generated.
    As they are somewhat packed, it seems that many of these files generate false virus alerts
    (as packed content contains "signatures").
    Please think about setting "/tmp/rectm*" onto an ignoreliste by default.
    I couldn't find out how to configure the Sophos deamon so I simply set recoll indexing on hold
    when the first "virus found" message arives as workaround, but I'd appreciate a hint.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Port Behaviour Change

    Sophos Product Information

    Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Protection

    Version in Production:10.3

    Feature Request Summary

    We would like the Sophos clients to close any existing connections once the activity is completed (i.e updating av defs, policies etc as established by the
    server)

    AND THEN the Sophos Client establishes a new connection to a specific port on the Sophos Server if it needs to communicate with a new session.

    Alternatively the Sophos Client could have a keep-alive process that keeps the connection between the Client and Server valid, so that if can re-use that connection if needed.

    How will this new feature…
