  2. Clear the history of the reports in cloud console for a fresh slate rather then waiting for it to go on its own.

    We have tested the cloud console so have many 'events' we want to clear this so that its a fresh start for when we use the console officially with live environment.

  3. Bulk Device Removal

    There should be a way to bulk remove devices from Sophos Cloud. One way could be uploading a CSV file with device names to be removed.

  4. Can we have a dialog box when SAV detects a threat rather than just a quick popup and an exclamation mark?

    Customer would like to see something like “YOU HAVE A VIRUS!!! But it’s OK, because I deleted it”

  5. Exclude Process longer that 14 Characters

    Sophos Product Information

    Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Security and Control
    Version in Production: 10.3

    Feature Request Summary

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?:

    We have a requirement to provide process level exclusion on the antivirus, the processes are longer than 14 characters so we are currently not able to provide this with Sophos, and have the option of disabling on access scanning only this leaves the system in a vulnerable state.

    How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have

    1 - It is critical that we have this ability

  7. Port Behaviour Change

    Sophos Product Information

    Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Protection

    Version in Production:10.3

    Feature Request Summary

    We would like the Sophos clients to close any existing connections once the activity is completed (i.e updating av defs, policies etc as established by the
    server)

    AND THEN the Sophos Client establishes a new connection to a specific port on the Sophos Server if it needs to communicate with a new session.

    Alternatively the Sophos Client could have a keep-alive process that keeps the connection between the Client and Server valid, so that if can re-use that connection if needed.

    How will this new feature…

  13. No info for sophosav user/group in the manual

    In the SAV for Linux and UNIX setup guide does not write
    sophosav user and group info.

    Some customer complained about there is no info what will SAV installer changes.

    In the manual's uninstall section it writes

    The uninstall script deletes:
    ■ All entries from the system startup that are associated with Sophos Anti-Virus.
    7
    ■ The Sophos Anti-Virus man pages in /usr/share/man.
    ■ The savscan on-demand scanner in /usr/local/bin.

    ■ /opt/sophos-av and its contents

    Is it possible to write a info install.sh does those things and create a sophoav user and group?

  14. Microsoft Exclusion Templates (e.g. SQL, Exchange, AD,...) 3rd Party Backup

    I would really like the option to enable exclusions based on Microsoft Recommendations. Once a year I manually go through the published recommended exclusions for Microsoft and other software (e.g. backup) and ensure I have those in my exclusions. It would be great (and save me a lot of time) if I had the option to check which exclusions I wanted.
    This seems to already be partially implemented in Sophos Cloud Server.

  16. how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite guide

    There is no clear technical information on your website on how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite.
    Web Appliance has a different process to the email appliance, help about does not show same info on the 2 Linux appliances.
    The Mobile Appliance has a different process to re-license than the Linux appliances. The Enterprise console has a 4th separate process which is different to all the appliances. Very hard to get clear information on how to re-license. Sophos tech support tell you to pay your supplier to do it for you. Not hard to do once you figure…

  18. HTTPS for ICAP

    Currently SAVI/SAVDI only supports HTTP for ICAP. As HTTP is a non-secure method for file transmission, new feature HTTPS for ICAP is needed.
