  1. Anti Virus Schedule Weekly or Monthly

    Add an option to scan (besides daily at certain time) weekly of monthly. Some scans on large drives take a whole day and don't need to be scanned weekly but rather 2 weekly or monthly.

  2. Add option that forces full system scans after scheduled start is missed

    Hi,

    we've Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.3 running in a very large and distributed environment (3000+ machines). Not all of our computers do run at the time we configured a scheduled scan - as there are people that e.g. work only 4 days a week. Sophos AV currently don't care - so we've a lot of machines that does not meet our compliance requirements.

    Would it be possible to add an administrative option like 'Run task after scheduled start is missed'?

    BTW: Such an option even exists Windows Task Scheduler - so it cant be hard to create and…

  4. alerts

    We get alot of alerts that state "One or more Sophos services are missing or not running" or "realtime protection has been disabled." We then have to go into Central and look up those machines only to find that 9 out of 10 times the alert has cleared itself. There is an Event Log entry that states "all services are running" or "realtime protection has been enabled." It would be nice to have an alert that is triggered from those resolved entries. That or be able to create an alert from Events contained in the Event Log.

  5. Sophos Home Beta - "Reboot for Update" Notification - Disable or Mute

    Today I've got an update notification that told me to reboot to complete the update. Although I usually don't mind this, it threw me out of the game I was playing (full screen, DirectX 12 application). I clicked "remind me later" and went back into the game. This happened again after around 30 minutes and I decided to just leave the message there, which fixed the issue of the game being minimized.

    Although a reboot seems to be required for certain updates it would be nice to be able to disable or mute the message - or that it does…

  7. Run a task after full scan

    If there was a option to run a task after the full scan is completed, like switch off the computer would be awesome.

  8. Scanning of USB upon mounting by OS

    Within our environment it is beneficial for USB to be scanned upon mounting by the OS. Is there a way to add a feature option for a policy to enable "Scan upon mounting".

  11. Sophos for virtual environment

    According to me, it would make sense to build a kind of AV cluster for the product "Sophos for virtual environment", in which several SVM can be integrated. This AV cluster should have its own IP or DNS name. The Sophos Guest VM Agent is then to be sent to this address. In the event of a SVM failure, this is not noticed because another SVM takes over the function and can be ensured that the AV protection can be granted.

  13. Endpoint Report

    Would suggest Sophos can let us customize the report by ourselves instead of using their template.

  14. Add eDirectory Support for Syncing Users & Groups

    Please consider adding Micro Focus(formerly Novell) eDirectory(NDS) support. We have attempted to use the AD Sync utility for this without We have customers running native eDirectory and DSFW environments who would benefit tremendously from having group synchronization to eliminate the manual management of group membership and policy assignment in Sophos Central. eDirectory is still very popular in many school systems internationally.

  16. Webgateway - Block things on Corporate LAN, but allow on other networks

    Would like an option to have web gateway block certain types of high bandwidth traffic when on the corporate network, but allow it on other networks.

    For example: Netflix. I don't want users to be watching netflix on their laptop when at the office, but not concerned when they are at a hotel or at home.

    I have some update caches in my network. Could they could be turned into beacons so that sophos web gateway can tell what network it is on?

  18. PUA

    I'd like to ask for the ability to finetune the PUA related configuration.
    For example I'd like to have the ability to exclude the PUA automatic cleaning on some specific devices, while keeping it working as usual on all the rest of the devices.
    Right now I have to add every exception manually, which is fine if we are in a "normal" environment (say: the PUA is a false positive) but it can be time consuming if the client is not "enforceable".
    This should be available only on the cloud management, not on the clients.
    Thanks for considering this idea.
