  1. Sophos for Virtual Environments - Load Balancing Capability

    Sophos for Virtual Environments v1.2.0 introduced GVM Migration functionality providing High Availability/Fail-Over. This is great, but I am seeing an issue where the GVMs aren't distributed nicely across the SVMs I have created.

    I have setup 19 SVMs and included all IPs in the additional_svms.txt on each. What I have found when using a gold image to deploy the GVM Agent to multiple virtual pools is that one SVM is favored above all others (600+ on one SVM)

    This results in performance issues... these are evident when running loadavg and nproc commands.

    So my request is, can SVE be updated…

    • Deletion of Central Accounts

      If a customer or Partner decides to not go for Central he should be able to delete the whole Central Account. This is to ensure

      a) all his data is deleted permantly (data privacy law with cloud based systems in germany)
      b) he can setup a new trial with the same Account at a later point (to see if the gabs being closed in a later release of central)
      c.) from the partner point of view - it keeps Partner Dashboard structured and makes it more easy to manage and keeps it clean

      • Exclusion rules should allow folder wildcards

        ClamAV on a Linux Server uses /var/tmp/*.tmp/*.tmp to store email contents while scanning them, and the number of alerts from dubious contents can be high. As the *.tmp names are randomly generated, but start with ClamAV-*, it would be nice to exclude them and let ClamAV do it's work, then check the contents of the emails when they land in their final destination instead.

        • Configure Alerting Thresholds in Cloud Console

          Allow administrator to configure thresholds for alerts in cloud console. Currently I receive many alerts for non-actionable items such as when a machine reports "Real-time protection has been disabled on a computer." Even though the computer is protected, a shut down or update causes this alert and a few moments later, the protection is OK. I need to be able to adjust this trigger threshold and the same on other items such as out-of date machines, missing updates, PUA detected, etc.

            • AV sample submission with Sophos Enterprise Console

              If I have a suspicious file which I want to deliver to Sophos labs for analysis I always have a risk.
              1. I need an established Internet connection to reach Sophos Upload portal.
              2. I need a mail-account (and also connection to the internet) to send the file.

              If the file is recognized as Mal/Gen I maybe cannot clean with the console, until a specific signature is created. So I have to upload this file. In worst case the file is on a remote location without IT on side.
              To get this file I have to connect to the machine,…

                Under Review  ·  Karl responded

                As part of the policy controls for Sophos Live protection you have the option to enable auto sample submission to Sophos.

                The option to allow the identification of suspect files and then allow the administrator to periodically select which ones to send to Sophos is one of many options we are evaluating to improve sample collection from customers.

                In the interim sophos has added Sophos Clean, a new standalone next-generation malware detection and removal product that can be used on a machine that is suspected of being infected, but currently no detections are being reported. Sophos Clean is available for a 30 day evaluation at no charge. Often new malware that evades the existing detection models for the Endpoint can be captured through the signitureless detection capabilities in sophos clean. Sophos clean is a second opinion scanner.

              • uninstall and reinstall option

                for troubleshooting can be very useful uninstall or reinstall endpoint on multiple client remotely from management interface

                • allow grouping of devices.

                  It would be great to be able to group devices by site, dept or location. instead of having one big list of devices and trolling through to find specific ones, to be able to group the devices would be very user friendly.

                    • Create Limited Administrators

                      We would like to be able to create limited Administrators. It would be very useful to give access to the Cloud Console to all our members, but limiting the user and devices that they can manage. And of course, not allowing them to modify global settings, such as the Base Policy. These limits could be configured at a "Group" level, for example.

                        This is being investigated with the intent of implementing restricted admin roles as we work towards full Role Based Administration.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                          • PuremessageContent filter exceptions

                            Currently in puremessage it is only possible to put a rule in for the recipient in the content filter however this isn't that useful for us.

                            For example.....macro virus are making a comeback and therefore we want to restrict (or possibly just delete) any emails containing those attachments. however some genuine customers will send attachments with macros and we want to allow those users to get through the content filter.

                            The only thing we can do without any program changes are to either allow macros and give users the choice to run or not (very bad idea) or block them…

                            • Improve Wildcard Criteria

                              Improve the Wildcard criteria for File Exclusions, inline with MS KB article KB822158.

                              So that *.* or say Edb*.log can be excluded rather than having to open up the entire folder or a blanket exclusion on all files with the extension.log etc

                              Thereby improving granularity and allowing exclusions to be very specific to named O/s files.

                              Examples being:

                              FileIDTable_*

                              Ntfrs*.*

                                        • File Integrity Monitoring on Linux Server Protection

                                          Enterprises need File Integrity Monitoring on their Linux system files. This is a requirement for all systems requiring Continuous Monitoring (NIKST 800-137) which are all defense contractors, Government contractors, government agencies, and soon, all HIPAA covered entities.
