  1. Provide a Nextcloud Sophos AV scanning engine

    Provide a Sophos AV scanning engine with API access for Nextcloud Linux servers like Kaspersky did.

    Kaspersky partner up with Nextcloud and provide a Kaspersky Scan Engine which communicates with an app via an API and scans every uploaded file.

  3. Version Rollback

    I put a few machines in the test group to test the newest version but, want to go back to the version we are using in our environment. Apparently, this is not supported. I need to test before deploying. Please enable the rollback option. Even if it does require that we have to uninstall/reinstall.

  4. custom hash list feeds


    1. support automation of adding block hashes into endpoint protection blocked items via custom feeds


    2. alerts on the dashboard for detection of files that are in the blocked item list. currently there is no alerts on the dashboard. if one does not have a SIEM to do monitoring, then one must manually check each endpoint in the central to see who has detection due to the blocked item list.


    3. option to automatically create case based on item 2.

  5. Block Windows 10 Apps

    the current Mail App (Windows 1909) has no exe left to start So far it was blocked by SAC. Not anymore. So users can start it.
    ICh used Sophos to block the unnecessary Windows 10 apps. This no longer works.
    Sophos support asks for an exe - I (and no one else) can't provide it.
    Sophos has to adapt / develop here and continue to block these apps as well.

  6. Garmin Express Update

    Garmin Express is a desktop software that notifies you for the latest maps and software availability. You can download the GarminExpress in your PC (Windows or Mac) from the support website, and it will help you install the updated maps on your Garmin GPS.

    Every customer has a different choice, and they need maps for other purposes such as cycling, driving, golf, or as a wearable. Luckily, we have the Garmin GPS, which lets us download the maps of our choice. Moreover, the process is so simple that even a non-techie can do it without even realizing it.

  8. Update SDU to Check for Root and Third-Party CA Certs

    During a recent install of Sophos to a Windows-based appliance I could not get Sophos to install. Running the SDU showed that it had problems accessing certain sophos.com URLs even though network packet captures showed the handshake. It turned out to be that the root/third-party CA cert was missing from the machines certificate store so while the TCP handshake completed a TLS tunnel could not be built b/c the TLS cert on Sophos could not be verified.

  10. Inform user when group policy prevents installation of Sophos Protection Installer

    I spent hours trying to install Sophos endpoint protection on a server and it would get to about 90%, hang for almost an hour, then fail only saying it could not be installed. When I got support involved, we discovered deep in one of the logs that group policy was preventing the installation. Why isn't this checked during the prerequisite check and if discovered, flagged immediately??

  11. Option to Clear "events.db" or address old Alerts not displaying in events anymore.

    There needs to be a way to deal with old Alerts and Warnings which have gone past the displayable events logs. If any event is causing an endpoint to stay consistently in Red Alert or Yellow Warning state, then the event should stay persistent and never go away until addressed. There's no way to deal with these issues currently other than to uninstall/reinstall Sophos completely or follow the below instructions from Sophos. This will only clear the events log to stop the alerts from showing, but doesn't actually address the original alerts.


    1. Disable tamper Protection

    2. Stop Sophos Health service

    3. Navigate…

  12. Support Lockdown for WIndows RDS Server

    It would be a really good feature if the function lockdown is official supported on Windows RDS Server. There are many users on it and some official (but potentially unwanted) software but also malware who writes whole applications and/ or plugins in the (open) userprofile. With lockdown it would also possible to stop installing PUA's.

  13. Allow the ability to unblock all printers and webcams

    While Sophos administrators have the ability to exempt a specific printer, webcam, or other usb device on an individual basis it would be great to offer the ability to whitelist or allow all printers and webcams to be added without admin intervention for each user.

  14. Simple Addition : Machine reboot status event on Sophos Central

    On Sophos Central, we do get events whether a reboot is required for a server / endpoint or not. But it doesnt generate any event whether the reboot has been completed.

    The same event gets generated on client side but not on console side which is very lame.

  15. Enterprise Console


    1. We need an option under the Enterprise console to view all the endpoints of the entire sub-estate in one place. As an admin, we are finding it very difficult to go inside the sub-estate and view the endpoints.

    2. We need an option to move the endpoints from one sub-estate to the other sub-estate.
      (preferably drag and drop)

    3. We have a single AD server in place which needs to be synced with all sub-estate.

    4. We need a search option in the Add Peripheral Exemptions window.

    5. We need a “Model” option in Peripheral Control > peripheral exemptions.

    6. We need an option to…

  17. Controllable thru cloud, stop scanning and send task to client.

    Should have Controllable feature thru cloud, exp: stop scanning, send task to client, turn on/off protection. It more easily IT support to support hundred over computer and different site, now hard to go to the site for only turn on the protection.

  18. Web Control device policy

    Could we have the ability back to apply web control policy by device instead of only by user? This was a feature in our previous version, and we use it to add protection for laptops. Some laptop users also use other devices so we don't want to apply policy by user, and some laptops are shared so we don't want it to be unprotected if someone else logs in. We prefer to avoid doubling up on protection for devices behind company firewalls.

  19. Find out inactive computer status on Enterprise console (Endpoint protection)

    How we find out inactive computer status on Enterprise console (Endpoint protection) same as Sophos admin Center console show.
    We cannot generate reports for inactive computers form Sophos enterprise console.
    Please accept my request for adding the feature in the report so that with this we can generate from Sophos enterprise console server.
