  2. Assign server group membership using a configuration setting on the endpoint.

    We use Citrix PVS (Provisioning Services) to dynamically create XenApp servers from one gold image.
    I followed Article 120560. All good.
    Where I have a problem is the Group Assignment in Sophos Central.
    My base Gold Image servers are assigned to a group called "Master".
    Now I boot one production server using the new Image.
    It appears in the Unassigned list. I have to manually assign it to the "Production" group and Policies.

    I would like to be able to either specify the Group in a configuration file or registry key that survives the procedure I follow in Article 120560. …

  3. Again and again, I find that it is very time-consuming and almost impossible for the end user to fail when installing the Sophos Security VM

    Again and again, I find that it is very time-consuming and almost impossible for the end user to fail when installing the Sophos Security VM, especially if the error is due to a failed during SSVM installer. Since the introduction of the Sophos for virtual Environment in Q1 / 2018, we have repeatedly had to spend a lot of time resp. Time lost, because we did not comming forward as fast as we planned! It would be desirable to have errors made clearer and more transparent, at the beginning and not at the end of an installation. Why a test…

  4. smb V2 enabled

    Following the security problems of SMB v1 operated by some ransonware some companies have decided to disable the smb v1 protocol. It would be interesting to be able to enable SMBv2 or SMBv3 for shares of Sophos Security VM or simply propose a procedure to activate SMB V2 or SMB V3

  5. 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…

  6. Sophos for Virtual Environments - Show GVM Count on Servers Page in Sophos Central

    I am aware that the number of GVMs protected by any one SVM is visible from the SVM Summary page in Sophos Central, but is there any chance the UI can be updated to show this on the main Servers list to save having to keep going in and out of each SVM to see the count against each?

    Basically an additional column on the Servers page in Sophos Central to show the amount of GVMs protected by each SVM

    Thanks

    Under Review  ·  Mark Toshack responded

    Hello

    Thank you for your suggestion I have logged this case with the relevant team to triage when it comes to the next available maintenance stream.

  7. Sophos for Virtual Environment - GVM Exclusions

    I am aware that there is a provision to have exclusions (according to best practice) for Windows based GVMs. However, is there any planned provision to have individual GVMs exclusions policies? Even if it follows the methodology of:
    \<servername>&lt;Drive>&lt;Folder>\
    \<servername>&lt;Drive>&lt;Folder>&lt;Filename>
    It would certainly help strike a balance between performance and security or reverting to installing the full agent and client on the server thereby negating the point of having SVE.

  8. Sophos for Virtual Environment - message by malware

    If malware is detected on the guest VM, the user get a only a message, that the operation is not possible ("you can't write to ..." or "you neet rights to ..."). I would prefer a message that point the user to malware for instance "sophos protection has denied access because detection ...."
