  1. 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).

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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…

  17. how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite guide

    There is no clear technical information on your website on how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite.
    Web Appliance has a different process to the email appliance, help about does not show same info on the 2 Linux appliances.
    The Mobile Appliance has a different process to re-license than the Linux appliances. The Enterprise console has a 4th separate process which is different to all the appliances. Very hard to get clear information on how to re-license. Sophos tech support tell you to pay your supplier to do it for you. Not hard to do once you figure…

  20. 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'?
