  1. Uninstall Sophos from endpoints via the Sophos endpoint console

    At the time we install Sophos Central EndPoint Protection solution on existing endpoint, it was impossible to uninstall existing Trend micro Worry Free solution automatically. it is a widely distributed solution, it will be interesting to add automatic uninstall of Trend Micro in Sophos Central Endpoint product.

  2. file type

    Sophos real-time does not provide protection against all archive formats.

    My testing showed that rar, tar, 7z files are not scanned. Ticket/Case opened and confirmed with support 8554747.

    Would like to see more control over what file types/archives are scanned

  3. new

    Even though folder exclusions recommended by Microsoft for Exchange Server 2016 are added to the Automatic exclusion list added to the servers, the recommended Exchange Server 2016 processes are not being added by Sophos Central. Would suggest to add those and the file extensions also.

  4. Datenschutz deaktiviert

    It seems to be quite unlucky to me that an endpoint with installed, but inactive "device encryption" shows the user the red Alarm sign ""Datenschutz deaktiviert" (german language Version).
    This should only appear with an active "device encryption" policy. We have to tell the users to ignore this warning. I am afraid, this teaches them to ignore any warning by Sophos.

  5. Enable tamper protection control via policy

    Currently via Sophos Central you can either disable tamper protection for a whole organisation, or individually per machine. I would like tamper protection to be controlled via a policy so that I can specify a certain department or group of users that can have tamper control disabled.

  6. Machines not being able to contact Sophos Central

    Can the App Dev Team write or come with a script to where when a client machine has been accidentally removed from Sophos Central and the client cannot contact central that the script can uninstall client and or remove tamper protection from the client machine which in turns allow the IT Admin to reinstall the client over again so the machine can communicate with Central again. The process you all have now is time consuming especially If the client machine is at a remote site and the IT Admin is not in front to the machine to perform its administrative…

  7. Tamper Protection for Sophos Home

    I just want Tamper Protection to be implemented into Sophos Home products. I suggest this because I have recently found out that all Sophos home modules can be terminated just by using Task Manager. This tells me that Sophos Home can be easily disabled by anyone, including unwanted attackers and malware.

  8. Bring back the ability for standard users to schedule scans on Mac

    After the February 2018 update, standard users on macs lost the ability to schedule scans for themselves. This means that my department now have to set up a dozen scan preferences in the admin console since we have people working 24/7 across hundreds of computers and whenever a particular computer is not in use varies considerably.

    It would be a lot easier for all concerned if we can go back to one scheduled scan and letting users pick another convenient time like when they are at lunch.

    The ability to schedule scans was one reason we picked Sophos since most…

  9. agent versions

    Agent Versions. Currently it is difficult to see whether a client computer has the latest agent installed or not. You haven't to go into each client details to check the update button and information next to it. It would be really useful if there was an easy way to view which agents were not on the latest version.

  10. Exclude Processes on Mac

    It is currently not possible to exclude processes from scanning on Mac computers. This seems like it should be basic functionality to achieve parity with Windows clients. It has all of the same use cases as Windows does for wanting to exclude a process from scanning.

  11. Game Mode

    Sophos Home:

    It would be great if there was a game mode switch in the cloud interface that temporarily disables all shields or something to disable the services. Adding exceptions to every game server isn’t very practical, especially for end users, who don’t know how to use netstat to look up what servers each game is connecting to.

  12. mac

    With Sophos Anti-Virus client for Mac version 9.6.2 a new app has appeared in the /Applications folder, namely "Remove Sophos Endpoint". This update was download from Sophos onto our on premise Sophos Management Server and is being distributed to our clients. Along with many Mac admins around the world I am amazed that Sophos have moved this app from the one that is usually found in the "/Library/Sophos Anti-Virus" folder into the main Applications folder, especially when it is listed alphabetically above the Sophos A-V client app. Deleting the app doesn't work as it reappears at the next update, unless…

  13. Fix the uninstall of Sophos Antivirus so that it uninstalls ALL registry keys it installs as well as the folder structure in Windows.

    Fix the uninstall of Sophos Antivirus so that it uninstalls ALL registry keys it installs as well as the folder structure in Windows.

    It's quite annoying that your application cannot cleanup and uninstall the very software it installs.

  14. central endpoint client reboot indicator

    Can you make the Sophos central endpoint client systray icon flash yellow when the client requires a reboot - the end users are not prompted to reboot unless they open the client status page (which they do not !!!!).

  15. Add firewall endpoint protection back!

    Please add the firewall back into the new sophos central agent. Currently we already have this in place on all our corporate laptops and now we are migrating endpoint protection to sophos central..this is not currently available and has rather been removed...resulting in our endpoints not having no firewall endpoint protection. If we already have this using on premise why on earth would this be removed. Please add this back in ASAP. About to start migratung..but can't.

  17. Sophos Migration Tool for Mac devices

    Migration Tool for Mac devices:

    Currently about to start migrating on-premise Sophos Endpoint Protection server/users to Sophos Central. Problem - migration tool works for Windows only...but not for Mac devices.
    We have a large number of Mac devices and the use of the migration tool to assist in mass deployment for Mac devices would have been "invaluable" for this task.
    Please can the existing Migration tool be extended to also select Mac devices and migrate.

  18. Progressbar in New Endpoint GUI

  19. Deletion of Sophos Endpoint on Client computers

    Getting endpoint components to function as expected involves removing the current installation of Sophos. Many times I have to resort to the Microsoft “Fix it” tool at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17588/fix-problems-that-block-programs-from-being-installed-or-removed to clean out the existing install, then deleting the “Sophos” folders in Program data and Program Files (x86). All this takes a lot of time.

    Support can be saved by having application (or script) that would obliterate all traces of the Sophos product on a client device much like one of your competitors.

    The benefits would be a great time saving and a more accurate ‘removal” of the product.

    A tool that…

  20. Option to change how scheduled scan runs on battery

    Have an option in SEC/Cloud to delay or run a scheduled scan when system is not running on battery

    Example: Client sets up a scheduled scan to run at 7:30pm and users are running on battery. Have an option to delay this until a non battery power source is detected or delay a few hours/minutes
