Schedule Disable tamper Protection.

As you maybe know there are problems with IASO systemstate backups in combination with sophos antivirus.

The workaround is

1. Disable Tamper Protection on the affected servers
2. Open Services.msc on each server
3. Stop and Disable the Sophos Health service
4. Reboot server and test backups

At Sophos managed central its possible to tamper protection manually for a device.

Is it possible to schedule the "disable Tamper Protection" at a certain time in Sophos managed central?

Then we can add a pre backup job to the IASO backup systemstate backup job to disable the sophos healt services and we do a post job to enable the health service and tamper Protection.
