Configure non-system Drive scanning via policy
Recently had a system infected with malware on a data drive...
There seems to be no way to configure scanning drives that aren't system drives via the Sophos cloud interface. This can be configured in the desktop client, but would be great to be able to configure as a default policy.
it doesn't scan the drive but rather the files being touched, to scan the entire drive you need to have it locally attached, mapped or else have the product installed on the host machine.

So this DOES scan all drives in a machine?
Already possible, if you go to the threat protection policy you will see an option for "Real-time scanning - Local files and network shares, here you can scan local or local and remote.
