  2. uninstalling endpoint protection windows

    Need a reliable procedure for uninstalling the endpoint agent, or ideally, a proper product uninstallation utility, which Support have told us does not exist.

    We need to be able to uninstall the endpoint agent completely in order to test suspected incompatibilities with some of our LOB software. Anyone also needs to be able to completely uninstall a product when they are trialling it and then decide not to proceed.

    The gui and cli-based procedure outlined in KB122126 is error-prone and often fails either completely or part-way. Removing then the remnants using MSFix individually does work but leaves behind several registry…

  3. Exclude Process in on-access-scans in Enterprise Console

  4. Policy by group instead of group by policy

    Hello all!

    Personally, I do not know if there is anything going on in this direction, but I would like to suggest that it be overridden or at least given the possibility (as an additional resource for example) of managing policies by group.

    Examples:

    In the case of applications:

    Application | Sales | Projects | Marketing
    Dropbox | no | yes | no
    Skype | yes | yes | yes
    Photoshop | no | no | yes

    In the case of websites:

    Website | Sales | Projects | marketing
    Facebook | no | no | yes
    Google | yes |…

  5. 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

  6. Simplify Sophos Antivirus Endpoint process

    Up to now the Endpoint protection of Sophos requires many steps to be uninstalled.
    For IT managers it's time consuming having to:
    - stop the service auto update
    - check the list
    - uninstall program by programm all Sophos products installed by the EndPoint in order

    As an alternative solution the Sophos Support answered us to implement a script that does all the steps by going to the Windows Registry, extract each program uninstall key and... ok, it's more complicated than the standard procedure.

    I think in 2016 there should be a way for programs to be useful, usable and…

  7. To add additional programs from launching i.e OS Sierra

    Users who are administrators on their Devices (Macs in this case) have the ability to upgrade to the latest OS released by Mac (or install any program they want on their systems).

    Is there away to add a custom Application Control to block certain Applications from launching?

  9. Sophos Cloud - Allow to disable popup alert detections on the endpoint

    On the Sophos Cloud Dashboard, allow to disable the popup alert detections so that the detection information is displayed only on the Dashboard console.
    This same feature is already available on the SEC (On-Premise endpoint console) but not on the Cloud dashboard.
