  1. Restriction to Discover Computers

    Problem:
    We are using Sophos in a multivendor environment which contains over 200,000 clients. The "Discover Computers" button is available for every Sophos admin, because there is no option to restrict this feature. Regularly somebody who is looking for a client presses the discover computer button. Now every network device which is reachable will be imported into the Sophos Enterprise Console and listed as an "unmanaged device". If we don't restart the SEC, sometimes more than 200,000 “unknown devices” are listed in the default "unassigned" group. We can delete these clients but they will remain in the Sophos database until…

  2. Sophos Central - Scheduled Report For All Customers

    It is a bit of a painstaking process to manually run reports for all of our clients we manage under Sophos Central. Maybe build-out an area in Central that is dedicated to reporting? This would allow us to automate reports have them sent to the POC for each client.

  3. 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.

  4. Would like to be able to view Release Notes for Cloud Web Gateway and Sophos Central

    Currently there are Release Notes for Endpoint Protection, but there are none for Cloud Web Gateway and very limited for Sophos Central. I have seen lots of changes made over time, but there is no documentation on these changes.

  5. Sort computers into 'folders' in Sophos Central

    Is it/would it be possible to add 'folders' (named as rooms for our use) to be able to group computers together, rather than just having a long list?

    We are currently working on role based administration for Sophos Central. Granting someone read only access is part of that project.

  7. More in-depth auditing information

    Raising on behalf of Platinum customer.
    Customer would like to be able to see what changes exactly have been made in policies if you make any.

  8. Prevent user from disable or terminate the Sophos services

    We have implemented device control on the network. However, the services of current version of Sophos Endpoint Security and Control (10.3) can be easily terminated by local Administrator users. This is painful for those non AD environment. It will be great if Sophos can consider to release patches or newer version of AV to prevent user from doing this.

  9. merge all duplicate names into one device history

    As a feature request, it would make more sense if we had an option to merge all duplicate names into one device history. We use physical asset tags, and our
    machines are named from the tag numbers. We reimage machines and reinstall Sophos, so now we’re getting duplicates which is driving up our device count and hurting our effort to stay within our license limit.

    There are changes planned to the end point agent such that it is able to detect if it is a duplicate. If so, the endpoint generates a new id which leads to it being treated as unique.

  10. Windows tamper protection improvements

    Improve protection of the Sophos installation from malicious actors
