  2. Website/IP exclusions for Linux

    Allow us to add exclusions, especially to MTD, for websites/IP addresses in Linux. We have VMs in a cloud environment that are constantly talking to a monitoring host. Without those exclusions CPU usage is really high.

  3. Sophos for Virtual Environments - Show GVM Count on Servers Page in Sophos Central

    I am aware that the number of GVMs protected by any one SVM is visible from the SVM Summary page in Sophos Central, but is there any chance the UI can be updated to show this on the main Servers list to save having to keep going in and out of each SVM to see the count against each?

    Basically an additional column on the Servers page in Sophos Central to show the amount of GVMs protected by each SVM

    Thanks

  4. linux move infected to quarantine

    Instead of locking access to infected file, an option to move to quarantine would be beneficial for real-time scanning of some 3rd party product queue directories

  5. Sophos for Virtual Environment - message by malware

    If malware is detected on the guest VM, the user get a only a message, that the operation is not possible ("you can't write to ..." or "you neet rights to ..."). I would prefer a message that point the user to malware for instance "sophos protection has denied access because detection ...."

  6. Make mkinstpkg support HTTPS locations

    When preparing a Linux installation package on SAV for Linux 9.12.3, attempting to specify an update URL in the form "https://server.example.com/sophos" results in the message "The update source address must be a website or an absolute directory path." Keeping the same URL but removing the S, i.e. "http://server.example.com/sophos" works as expected.

    Please enhance the tool to allow HTTPS locations so authentication passwords aren't sent in the clear.

  8. Show alert date in Sophos Enterprise Console

    In the table list containing "computers with alerts" there is no column showing the date and time of occurence. This should be shown directly in the table, not only in the host / alert details.

  9. Alerts in Sophos Central should group together

    Alerts in Sophos Central should group together like they did in the Dashboard in the old Sophos Cloud UI. I can view the alerts in the Reports, but I cannot action them from there.

  10. scheduled scan: implement quoting in exclusion definitions

    One of the options we would like to see is that the exclusions specified with the exclude keyword can include quotes like "\ " to specify a space in a path / file specification. Currently, we have to workaround by putting asterisks at those character positions.

  11. scheduled scan: implement controlling Default extensions

    scheduled scans are still quite limited, as we can see here: https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/117346.aspx

    One of the options we would like to see is that we would like to control the list of Default extensions that is implicitely active: there is only a parameter called "excludeExtension"

  12. Need a way to check endpoint policy version and compare to Cloud

    Need a way to verify if an endpoint is using the latest policy. It would be great if policies were given a number or last updated field that could be compared to a client to see if it is running the newest one.

  13. Single Download for a Full Installer that is automatically updated with the latest updates.

    Some of my customers have really bad internet which means that installing your software is beyond a joke for 30 or 40 PCs, I ended up creating a single installer from your white papers however a location to download a FullInstaller that always kept up to date with downloads would be really useful meaning that only future updates would need downloading.

    We’ll look again at the issue of “fat” or “single” installers in the future. We are currently working on an even thinner installer but that should pave the way to more flexibility and could mean an easier way to create your own customised (read fat) installer. We stopped creating the fat installers as they become out of date very quickly and we now also have more components to download and install for some licenses which would mean creating even more installers, better to have a “vanilla” installer that all can use and a method for customers who need a fat installer to create their own. No promises on a timeline for this yet though.

  14. Ability to change scanning of network files on Mac OS X from the cloud

    On the client for Mac OS X you have the ability to turn off "files on network volumes". If you turn it off it "jumps" back on(May be a bug). It would be great if it was possible to control scanning of network volumes from the Cloud Console through a policy.

    I see it as a checkbox solution: "Do you want to scanning network volumes? Yes/No".

  15. Implement automatic reporting in PM for Exchange

    Implement automatic reporting in PM for Exchange. In SEC there is already a possibility to send monthly reports. We also wish this for PM.

  16. Allow Anti-Virus and HIPS configuration at the dashboard (as it is available on SEC) for managed Cloud endpoint (desktop computers)

    Allow the configuration of the Anti-Virus and HIPS settings to be applied for the endpoints installed on desktop computers, such as:
    - HIPS configuration (enable/disable buffer overflow, suspicious behavior, malicious traffic)
    - Enable/Disable on-access scanning on read, write, rename

    Under Review  ·  Karl responded

    We discussed this when developing the application control policy for Sophos Central managed endpoints. At the time we decided to maintain feature parity with on-premise managed endpoints (SEC). While this capability is not available it is on our short list but does not appear on any planned delivery timelines at the moment. We evaluate and prioritize enhancements for the product multiple times per year.

  19. Add Kanguru Defender Elite30 model series Secure USB drives to supported Device Control list

    With an expected implementation of restricting use to solely encrypted flash drives for our company, add the Kanguru Defender Elite30 model series to the supported device list in the Secure Removable Storage category of Device Control.
