Port Behaviour Change

Sophos Product Information

Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Protection

Version in Production:10.3

Feature Request Summary

We would like the Sophos clients to close any existing connections once the activity is completed (i.e updating av defs, policies etc as established by the
server)

AND THEN the Sophos Client establishes a new connection to a specific port on the Sophos Server if it needs to communicate with a new session.

Alternatively the Sophos Client could have a keep-alive process that keeps the connection between the Client and Server valid, so that if can re-use that connection if needed.

How will this new feature address your business requirements?: This will stop the numerous blocks from the firewall caused by clients using stale high port connections.

How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have: 1
