  1. Warning for pending reboot after Exploit Prevention updates

    Every time Exploit Prevention has an update, each computer ends up in the "Computers with Errors" field, because it needs a reboot. You can't acknowledge them to remove them from that list, and they won't be removed until they reboot. We try not to reboot our users computers unless we have a scheduled maintenance.
    It would be nice if there was a distinction between an Error and a "reboot needed"

    I check that report to see when computers are legitimately having problems, so when every computer appears in that list after an update, it kind of defeats the purpose.

  2. Allow upgrading the Endpoint Protection Client via SSCM

    We would like to use SCCM for upgrading (and potentially downgrading) the endpoint protection client. This is currently not possible and supported by Sophos since an upgraded agent will immediately downgrade to the version specified in the software subscription when connected to the Enterprise Console.

  3. Virus email notification

    move virus email notification from the workstations to the SEC. Most workstations have smtp disabled for security so if a virus hits it admins are unaware until the nightly summary report. by moving it to the SEC admins are notified in a more timely manner

  4. Notification From Address

    The "From" address is not something you can configure for email alerts. By default it sends it as sav@<machinename>.<domain> and there is no way to change that. If you are sending through office 365 smtp, it will not allow you to send email alerts with a different from address as a basic security policy.

  5. Mail for Sophos Antivirus Release Management for SESC – Recommended and Preview Version

    Before an update of SAV Version, would help administrators, if Sophos informs a few days in advance per mail.
    Currently, preview and recommended version as of May 2019 are on the same ver-sion. Which is probably not the idea of the system. So clients can’t be tested with a preview test group.
    The information at https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/120189 is as often in-correct.

  6. 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. Uninstall and Repair from onprem console

    Sophos Admins need a way to force uninstall remotely from the console.
    This is a standard features across other AV products i have used.

    we have a deployment of over 260 machines across 1km long distance. It is not always feasible to walk to the pc or log in remotely if the user is using the pc.

    Why has this basic admin feature not been implemented?

  9. show full version numbers in SEC console

    Update SEC to display the FULL version of products installed on the endpoint. Currently the full version numbers of installed products are only displayed on the endpoints making accurate identification impossible from the SEC console. (As evident in April-May of 2019) At a minimum, gather that information into the SEC dbase so it can be queried.

  10. scheduled policy updates via enterprise console

    Add scheduled policy updates via enterprise console. Given the limitations of Tamper Protection to prevent end users from making changes and the support risks of Advanced Tamper Protection, the ability to schedule policy checks to periodically force policy compliance on the endpoints would be a good future enhancement.

  11. 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.

  12. 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?

  13. 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…

  14. 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:…

  15. 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.

  16. Definition updating

    Currently there is no alert / status change for an endpoint who's definition files are out of date, meaning, let's say you have a fully protected client, but, sophos update (not engine as that alerts if it fails) but rather JUST the definitions fail to update.

    we would like the ability to be able to either configure a threshold for alerting, or be able to simply enable/disabled alerting for definitions not updated.

    we have many endpoints that will fail to update for days, and the result is a system that while there are no alerts, is potentially not protected.

    my…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Bulk Policy Changes

    Enable bulk (various) changes across multiple policies in complex environments with a large number of groups and policies. Instead of having to manually change a setting in each policy one by one (for example, deselect bandwidth restrictions, in each updating policy), it would be benifical to have the ability to select multiple policies and apply the change to all of them. Changing a single setting across multiple policies manually is very time consuming and resource intensive, especially if you have a large amount of policies (100+).

  20. 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.
