  1. May we set custom messages for the warning or blocking of file downloads as regulated in Web Control?

    May we set custom messages for the warning or blocking of file downloads as regulated in Web Control? I have a customer who would like to customize the message given with the warning for downloading PDF files. I know I can simply allow the file, but we would prefer to remain vigilant. The only way I can find to do this is through customizing a firewall's warning, but nothing within Sophos Central. Any ideas?

    The firewall article is here: https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123361

  4. Web control category lookup

    It would be very useful to be able look up the web control categorization of any particular URL. For example, a simple web form that accepted a URL and returned the Sophos web control category.

  5. Block Page Notice for HTTPS content

    Currently there is no visible indication provided for HTTPS page interceptions, can this be changed so the end user gets some feedback as they would do with HTTP content?, as currently they just get a "This page cannot be diplayed"

  6. Sophos Central - Web Gateway Policy - Notification should include the policy name

    Within the Notification Section in the Policy for Web Gateway on Central it does not automatically give the name of the Policy.

    Having the Name of the Policy or an Identifier will be useful for an IT Admin if a user is calling with and issue and they have several policies.

  9. Provide List of Web Control Categorized Sites

    There is currently no list available to administrators of the sites that fall into a category. This makes identifying false positives a guessing game as to why a site is being blocked. Recently our organization blocked Personal and Dating sites, only to have our marketing team be unable to access legitimate sites like Facebook. The reactive nature of having to submit false positives after a block occurs erodes the confidence in the sophos product. If administrators had a way to vet some high profile sites before enabling a category block it would go a long way. Support has advised that…

  12. Sophos Endpoint Web Control - Block file-types over HTTPS

    "Sophos Endpoint Web Control is HTTPS unaware and it will only be able to successfully blocked file-types over HTTP"

    With more sites running entirely over HTTPS. Blocking users from downloading certain file types becomes more unreliable each day.

  13. Possibility to activate Web Control only outside corporate LAN

    Possibility to activate Web Control only outside corporate LAN would be useful to increase security for traveling users and avoid a second layer of redundant security on the LAN.

  14. For Sophos Web Control, could we have warning windows pops up for https websites which fall into the warn web usage category?

    For Sophos Web Control, could we have warning windows pops up for https websites which fall into the warn web usage category? Currently warning windows will pop up for http websites which fall into the warn web usage category only.

  15. website management

    When a website tagged in Global Settings > Website Management is blocked due to a web control policy, the block page should inform the user which tag(s) caused the page to be blocked.

  16. Allow custom web block warns instead of block or allow

    It would be nice to manually add websites to the warn list instead of only being able to add websites to a block or allow. Warning is useful as people can still get through if it is legitimate.

  17. Quarantined machines need to actually tell you they are

    Recently had an issue with home users being blocked from accessing any website. Sophos just displayed a block message with no details.
    After two months of going through tech support I found them in the quarantined rule, removing them obviously resolved the issue.

    It would be fantastic if Sophos displayed the fact the machine was quarantined on the block message as this have saved me lots of time. I also believe it would benefit other customers as well.

  18. request classification button on website blocked page

    request classification button on "website blocked" page for policy blocked pages where the url in question has not yet been verified by a human.

    it is not productive for users or administrators if users are blocked from urls because an algorithm incorrectly classifies the content.

  19. Log Blocked Websites from Web Control in the sav.txt log

    Please log blocked websites that were blocked via web control to the sav.txt log. While this info is in the agent log file, it's not enduser friendly.

  20. Temporary access to sites

    Through Web Gateway it would be great if we could allow access to sites temporarily. For example allow a policy access to Facebook or a news site for 1 hour. After that hour it would go back to being blocked.
