  1. SMTP configuration

    SMTP configuration

    Please define global smtp server configuration to use for all mail alerts on policies

    You can also define one of global server settings for smtp server. And you can use this setting for all policies by activating related mail alerts.

    I have to maintain all of policies and mail configurations, isn’t it ?

    It is not best solution to define smtp server policy by policy. As you see as below, I have too many policies and in this solution it is increasing my operation cost .

    And review other products feature for smtp alerts as same as mcafee…

  3. RBAC Granular Control For Groups

    Groups:

    Top Level
    >Sales
    > UK
    > Germany

    Have the ability for the user to only access Sales and Germany only, excluding UK. This will give them the ability to control these sub-estates only.

    Is this coming?

  4. Enterprise console Origin Infection

    I suggest to add the field 'Origin of Infection' on logs of one virus detection.
    This field is very importante in malware such as Conficker or WannaCry.
    Andother antivirus companies provide it.

  5. Disable Tamper Protection through Command Line

    Hi,

    Somethimes, managing 1000+ or even 5000+ machine its difficult, even more if we don't have built-in features in the console to remediate/uninstall corrupt/broken installations.

    But, the main problem is not that. The problem is that we CANNOT disable Tamper Protection remotely to reinstall/remove Sophos AV, in the following cases:

    1) Console was erased/failed and there's no cert/db/registry backup (all Endpoint with Tamper enabled)
    2) Broken installations dont apply Tamper Policies (to disable it)
    3) Migrated console (don't have the old one).

    All this would be solved by having the chance to disable Tamper through Command Line. Example

    Case A:…

  6. Uninstall and Repair Endpoints via Sophos Central (was SEC)

    The uninstall and repair options via console would make it easier to manage a large number of machines, mainly because sometimes it is difficult to get access to some of them.

  7. On-Demand Scan from the Enterprise Console

    I'd like to be able to scan a client remotely from the Enterprise Console and watch the scan in real time or at least get the progress of the scan with the result when it finishes.

  8. search for sever by IP address in Sophos Console

    searching for servers by IP will be great to manage if we manage hundreds servers.
    Hosting companies are not friendly with the clients hostname.
    It would be very useful to be able to search and identify servers.
    So please add the option under Server Protection > Servers > The IP address searching.

  9. Restriction to Discover Computers

    Problem:
    We are using Sophos in a multivendor environment which contains over 200,000 clients. The "Discover Computers" button is available for every Sophos admin, because there is no option to restrict this feature. Regularly somebody who is looking for a client presses the discover computer button. Now every network device which is reachable will be imported into the Sophos Enterprise Console and listed as an "unmanaged device". If we don't restart the SEC, sometimes more than 200,000 “unknown devices” are listed in the default "unassigned" group. We can delete these clients but they will remain in the Sophos database until…

  10. Enterprise Console REST API

    Provide a REST (or other) API into SEC. Basic features such as creating groups, assigning policy, adding/deleting/moving machines would be immensely helpful. Nearly all major software applications now have some form of accessible API that allows common tasks to be automated. This idea was suggested back in early 2015, but sadly was denied.

  11. File hashing is still missing

    After identifcation of malware, do a hash on the file (in Quarrantine or before delete). This helps me to add the hash into other security tools for detection and prevention, and it also helps me to verify it's intended behavior.

    You get rave reviews for this product from the security community but I can't understand why this simple information is not made available within your product.

  12. Clear the local endpoint's quarantine.xml from the SEC server

    1. Please provide a way to clear the local Sophos quarantine through a managed Sophos update site for endpoints.
    1. Using this solution a customer can change the update policy within the managed console to the update site which would clear quarantine.
    2. Once quarantine is cleared the Sophos console would show it is cleared. (This is because clearing quarantine locally does report this status to the console.)
    3. Then the computers update path could be moved to another update location that does not clear the Sophos quarantine.
    4. Providing managed customers with a way to clear up the issues…

  13. Sophos Central Admin Console needs one of the following – SSO SAML integration with SAML Identity provider or at the minimum built-in passwo

    Sophos Central Admin Console needs one of the following – SSO SAML integration with SAML Identity provider or at the minimum built-in password management capabilities for Super/Admin role users.
    Without these features Sophos Central Admin Console is highly vulnerable, considering that unauthorized access to the Central Admin Console can lead to attacker disabling end-point protection or wiping data from end-user devices

  14. Remove self signed certificates and allow IT admins to install internal CA Cert

    We are a PCI shop and the self signed certificates that Sophos AntiVirus generates are a pain in the posterior. They show up as vulnerabilities using Nessus which requires us justifying the risk to our clients. This seems rather unnecessary to me as most PCI shops have their own CAs in-house. If Sophos would give us the capability of importing our own certificates, life would be much better!

  15. AD Sync For Deleted Machines

    I would be really nice to have AD sync to update when machines are deleted out of AD. As it stands right now, the AD administrator must inform the SEC administrator that machines have been deleted.

  16. Sophos Endpoint IPv6 support

    I support a federal client and our implementation of Sophos Endpoint Security is only used for UNIX/Linux systems. There have been at least a couple of mandates by the government’s OMB for federal agencies to transition to IPv6 and internally the transition is coming quickly with some devices only enabled for IPv6.

    We currently have a host installed on the network, IPv6 only, that needs Sophos installed and communicating with the Sophos Endpoint server over IPv6.

    It is my understanding from Sophos support that this is not currently supported. What like to know what the plan is for endpoint IPv6…

  19. In reports can we get in detailed report (eg. Out of Date Computers- Computer Name, Username, Location/group, IP Address, Last updated Date)

    In reports can we get in detailed report like below:
    1. Out of Date Computers- Computer Name, Username, Location/group, IP Address, Last updated Date
    2. Up to Date Computers- instead of count can you provide all system details like Computer Name, Username, Location/group, IP Address, Last updated Date
    3. Authority to select required column in all kind of reports which is available in Console so we can customize the same as per our need

  20. https AutoUpdate

    In order to add extra security to our company’s Sophos Endpoint (Anti Virus) Update proceedings I was going to change Primary update source to URL like described in the following link.

    https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/38238.aspx

    Nevertheless according to these two posts from Forum it seems not to be possible to call Update URL using HTTPS

    https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/16/t/4332
    https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/16/t/2630

    Sending Credentials / Password without encryption is no option for us at all.

    Thus it would be really helpful to have UpdateManagement working well with https.
