  1. Adjust the number of lines shown on the DEVICE listing page.

    In the hopes of speeding up response time from the console would it be possible to lower the number of machines listed when DEVICE is chosen from the OVERVIEW menu?

  3. Block creation, moving and deletion of *.EXE files

    Sophos Endpoint policies should allow the blocking of moving, creation and deletion of *.exe files on the system (i.e. block a user copying an *.exe file from C:\Program Files to their documents share). This is functionality that exists in Symantec Endpoint Protection and works very well in preventing the introduction of malware to an end user device/the network!

  6. Citrix - allow a user policy override for a Citrix Server

    When logging on to a PC, the PC policy is in effect. When the user logs on the User policy will override the PC policy and take precedence. This is useful for blocking all unnecessary applications, website and perhipherals.

    When logging on to a Citrix server the Citrix server polic is in effect. There is no possibility at present for a User policy to take precendence. At the moment, if you want to allow an application, it is allowed for all user on the same Citrix server (same for websites, perhipherals etc).

    It would be useful to have a user…

  7. Share the applications added each month to application control policy

    There has been cases when an already existing application was blocked suddenly because sophos adds to the list. It has caused significant disruptions in the company. It would make sense to share the applications added each month prior to pushing it out.

  8. Application Control

    Currently users must send a request to Sophos Labs to have a file blocked by Application Control. It would be good if users could create a custom block list to deploy across their environment - for example, block/alert on SHA256 hash, filename, regex, directory path, etc.

    Having the option to alert (not block) would be useful too, so use of applications that are required, but suspicious can be monitored.

  9. Microsoft Remote Desktop store app

    Please allow us to enable/disable Microsoft Remote Desktop from the Microsoft App store. For some reason it's being blocked even though I have all the RDP options unchecked in Application control. I submitted a ticket for this and another application and they said i need to submit a suggestion.

    How is it a suggestion when it doesn't work as designed?

  10. Schedule Disable tamper Protection.

    As you maybe know there are problems with IASO systemstate backups in combination with sophos antivirus.
    https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/sophos-endpoint-software/95786/freeze-thaw-vss-failures-when-sophos-av-is-utilized/374472

    The workaround is

    1. Disable Tamper Protection on the affected servers
    2. Open Services.msc on each server
    3. Stop and Disable the Sophos Health service
    4. Reboot server and test backups

    At Sophos managed central its possible to tamper protection manually for a device.

    Is it possible to schedule the "disable Tamper Protection" at a certain time in Sophos managed central?

    Then we can add a pre backup job to the IASO backup systemstate backup job to disable the sophos healt services and…

  14. yandex

    hi,

    There are problems with YandEx. There are thirty application types from google. For Yandex, we need that much detail.

    web side and application side are very inadequate.

    I want a download / upload solution for yandex applications.

  15. Block Adobe Acrobat versions which are EOL

    Adobe Acrobat 8 is available to blacklist. Update the option to allow blocking EOL versions of Adobe Acrobat & Acrobat Pro. Today, version 11 or earlier is end of life.

  17. Block Grammarly

    Grammarly can be installed without admin rights into a user's profile, but requires an admin to... fail to remove it. I ended up torching the folder containing it, but it's left a mess on that PC. Since Grammarly is effectively a keylogger that sends to the cloud, it doesn't meet our security policies.

  19. Application version control

    Additional options in Application Control, especially for browsers.

    Being able to block:

    Versions of Chrome < X (Chrome current version is 62)
    Versions of Firefox < X (Firefox current version is 57)

    Being able to block versions of Chrome < 59 and Firefox < 53 would be a great start in killing off legacy browsers with lots of vulnerabilities from being permitted to browse the Internet.
