  1. SAV for Mac

    Why would a global security software/hardware provider distribute/sell a product marketed as compatible/available for use on Mac OS X endpoints but fail to properly codesign the installer, include a valid Apple Developer Certificate, or bundle the OS X installer.app in a way that doesn't causes Apple's Gatekeeper to generate warnings that "the developer of this app (the OS X Web Gateway installer) cannot be identified"? Therefore requiring the user (us) to A) force override our system's security setting of only allowing installation/execution of apps from the Apple App Store and IDENTIFIED Developers, and then B) hope to **** that what…

    The warning is a bit misleading as we are a trusted developer and the app is signed properly. There is an alternative way we can package the app to prevent the gatekeeper warning, we are investigating this at present. The software should, of course, only be downloaded from Sophos Central.

  2. EASY: Progress indicator on Sophos Endpoint download

    When I download Sophos Endpoint Protection for home usage, my computer begins downloading a 219 MB file without showing a progress bar. My connection is fast, but many users have slow connections, and they might think that the download has stopped or frozen.

    The fix is easy: have your Web site transmit a Content Length header at the start of the download process. Your web ops team could probably fix this problem in minutes.

  4. Being able to download either .MSI or .MST installation files for Group Policy Deployments

    Being able to download installation files as .MSI or .MST instead of only .EXE This for a faster GPO deployment, and not having to use scripts and .bat files.

  5. Notification when the client is being updated

    Need to get a notification when the client is being updated (this is not the virus pattern). last week we had 2000 clients being updated at 300meg each which flooded our network if there was a notification then we could have prepared for this.

  7. Simplify Sophos Antivirus Endpoint process

    Up to now the Endpoint protection of Sophos requires many steps to be uninstalled.
    For IT managers it's time consuming having to:
    - stop the service auto update
    - check the list
    - uninstall program by programm all Sophos products installed by the EndPoint in order

    As an alternative solution the Sophos Support answered us to implement a script that does all the steps by going to the Windows Registry, extract each program uninstall key and... ok, it's more complicated than the standard procedure.

    I think in 2016 there should be a way for programs to be useful, usable and…

  8. It would be nice if, when you click on an error on the Enterprise Console, it actually went to a page of information.

    Instead of the more often:
    Your search - sau - 0000006a site:www.sophos.com/en-US/support/knowledgebase - did not match any documents.
    No pages were found containing "sau - 0000006a site:www.sophos.com/en-US/support/knowledgebase".

    Suggestions:
    •Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
    •Try different keywords.
    •Try more general keywords.

    ---
    You would think the software itself could find information on the events it reports. Information about possible malware is often not found either.

  11. Support scheduled scans with Sophos Home Premium

    Hopefully I'm just missing something but I can't find a way to schedule daily scan with Sophos Home Premium other than creating a Windows Task. This seems like a very basic endpoint security feature and was previously supported by the free version of Sophos.

  12. whitelist

    I've certain sites "old style" that need to download a windows executable in the browser cache, basically without user intervention. To be clearer, I mean in a "hidden" way. I would like to let user to download THIS executable from THIS site without showing any warning from antivirus. The problem is that user can't see the sophos warning that "organization discourage executable download" because the download is hidden, and so the app fail. It's a feature that is in some way similar to that already existing in sophos that let execution of executable if located in a specifical folder. See…

  13. Central licensing with TSE

    When a user uses an account to log on his workstation and the same user on the same workstation uses another account to log on a TSE session, Sophos Central counts 2 licenses. It would be interesting to count only one license.

  15. new

    Sophos Client Firewall (SCF) version 3.0 and higher: Checksum control:-

    The firewall can detect and report that the check sum of an application has changed (e.g. after an update) and log it in the log file.

    Why can it not display the old checksum + date and new checksum + date for user acceptance as it was done previously prior to version 2.9 of the firewall.

    After acceptance by the user the next execution instance of the application it will be allowed by the firewall.

  17. Group/Ungroup

    New Group/Ungroup feature on Alerts in Sophos Central - would like to see an option to set which option is available by default or have the setting I choose stick. Currently every time I click on Alerts it Groups the alerts and I'd much prefer to have the Alerts UnGrouped since we don't really get that many alerts to make Grouping them necessary. It's getting really annoying to have to click the button to ungroup the alerts 15 times a day, when the option I choose should really stick.

  18. Disable updating notifications for Safeguard endpoints

    There is no option in SafeGuard to disable the updating notification for Sophos SafeGuard on endpoints. We would like the option to disable updating notification for the safeguard product so these events are not seen on the endpoint.

  20. Allow application and scanning white-listing to include a hash validation requirement.

    When using white-listing an application/file, can we add the ability for the application check to require matching a SHA-hash and filename, rather than requiring just a specific file name. This way known-good tools that are widely distributed can be safely excluded without risk.
