  1. Sophos Quick Scan

    Currently Sophos has no option to perform a quick scan on the affected endpoint. A quick scan can quickly scan the mostly affected areas of an operating system (for eg. memory, registry, currently running processes, startup entries etc.) in and under 10-15 minutes.

    This Quick Scan could largely benefit users who want to occasionaly run a scan but don't as the only option they are left with is a full system scan.

  2. How the existing linux client can redirect to newly fresh installed Enterprise console 5.2.2

    Client was asking, there should be a way for existing Linux endpoint should redirect to newly fresh installed Enterprise console 5.2.2. As it could be happened if client don't have a backup of Enterprise console and if they need to install a fresh installation, then existing Linux endpoint are not able to communicate with the newly console as due to Old SSL certificate.

  5. Application Control - Selectively detect/block by category

    Allow to select by category, instead of globally, to choose "block" or "detect" applications. From Customer:

    Today we have the Application Control Policy set to “Detect but allow to run” which has allowed us to see what applications are detected which we could be blocking. We very quickly want to turn this feature on to start blocking application types, specifically the “File Sharing Application” type to block things like BitTorrent and other P2P software. The problem is that when we move this category to block we have to remove the “Detect but allow to run” option for all categories. Now…

  7. Native support for Syslog

    The Sophos Enterprise Console needs the native capability to generate Syslog messages in response to system events and security incidents.

    Many IT organizations rely on Syslog in order to transmit event messages to other applications for further processing such as: Centralized log storage, Forensic log analysis, IT help desk, Incident Response, Audit, etc.

    When integrating Syslog events with a SIEM or Log Management tool, the tool receiving the events usually needs to normalize the data into their expected format. When creating a Syslog capability, it would be helpful if all of the events IDs were documented so that customers could…

  10. Add admin comment field for Web Control url entry

    When adding sites to the allow or block list in Web Control, it would be great to have another field or 2 so that the Sophos admin can enter when the site is being added and a description for why the site is being added (eg. internal help desk ticket number)

  11. Remote Desktop Integration

    While investigating malware issues, it is very often necessary to either visit a computer in person, or if it is remote, to connect to it via the Remote Desktop Protocol.

    It would be nice to be able to right click on a computer within SEC and have an option to connect to the client via RDP. SEC could launch the Microsoft Terminal Server Client (mstsc.exe) and pass the IP address/hostname of the client as a parameter.

    This would allow the administrator to connect to the client without having to 'leave' the SEC console and launch the RDP connection manually. The…
