  1. The ability to add/remove individual endpoint components.

    With the Sophos on premise solution I had the ability to add or remove an individual component of the endpoint package. This was very useful in trouble-shooting a failed install. I currently have endpoint agents with partial installs and I am unable to trouble-shoot other the removing the complete endpoint suite and trying to re-install the full client once again. Even after several attempts some components remain uninstalled. Multiple re-install attempts fail to fix the issue.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Client Activity

    Request to be able to monitor client activity through the Sophos Enterprise Console.
    An example is Sophos Endpoint was blocking certain ports that Bloomberg needed to connect using but this was only discovered via client logs and was not visible through the Enterprise Console

  7. 2 Factor authentication to clear Tamper Protection

    If a client delete a computer from the Cloud Central product without uninstalling the PC software first, you are unable to remove Sophos from the PC. You need to follow KB124377.
    How about some form of 2 factor authentication to allow us to use a different random key to do this action for our clients?

  8. 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.

  9. Visible display of "on insert" virus scan

    Sophos tech-support advise that the Central Endpoint product does perform a virus scan when removable media is inserted. HOWEVER, there is NO visual display that the scan is taking place. We suggest that a dialogue box opens and visually displays the progress of the on-insert virus scan.

  10. Don't show excluded volumes in scan items

    Sophos Endpoint Security for Mac scheduled scan logs list excluded volumes under the "Scan items" section. This is confusing, as it both indicates the scanner included and excluded the volume(s). Removing excluded volumes from the scan items list would provide more clarity regarding Sophos' scan history.

  11. 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.

  13. Add database application types in 'Application Control' in UTM

    Add database category in 'Application Control' in UTM to control database software.

    Would be very useful to control what database technologies users are allowed to install

  14. Third column in Authorization Manager tabs (e.g. Adware and PUAs)

    It would be very useful to have an additional column in Authorization Manager tabs, e.g. the Adware and PUAs tab has:
    1. "Known adware and PUAs" and "2. Authorized adware and PUAs".
    In column 1 we see all PUAs that have been discovered inside our network, but we can't differentiate between newly discovered un-assessed and blocked based on previous assessment. Adding a column will help us because then we only need to check newly discovered PUAs and determine if we want to keep blocking them or allow them instead of working through the entire list finding which ones are new.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  18. Latest search for updates by Mouseover SysTray Icon and in SE Client

    Everywhere is displayed the date and time of the last search for updates. But that does not make sense. It is much more important to know the date/time from the updates (signatures) which currently being used.

  20. exclusion variable

    Allow the exclusion of paths for scanning using system variables
    e.g. %localappdata%/Vendor/FolderForDatabase or %userprofile%/Vendor/FilesAreHere
    As these will change for each user on each machine but can be required for every machine if you use the same software.
