  1. 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?

  2. Update Now on Central Endpoint

    Why is the "Update Now" feature only available through selecting "About" (Bottom-Right-Corner), as opposed to being available on the front page.

    This isn’t in an obvious place, there should be an action menu at the top with the this in along with all the other missing actions that really should be on the endpoint.

  3. Sophos HOME EP protection - Tamper Protection & scheduled scans.

    I currently run a Sophos UTM system (home installation) that includes EP licences. As I'm thinking of moving to the Sophos XG firewall I've installed Sophos HOME EP on two of my PC's.
    It would be really nice if this included;
    1) Tamper Protection (to prevent unauthorised product removal / tampering).
    2) Scheduled scans - it may do this already but I can't see where.

  4. Use a signed XML file to use an LAN server cache to complete an install

    I want the bootstrap installer to be able to use a signed XML file provided in the command line silent install to trigger a LAN source based install without requiring connectivity to the cloud to complete the install.

  5. Cloud endpoint Web Filter notification

    When a website is blocked by the cloud endpoint product, windows 10 throws a notification on the screen stating that the web filter blocked a site. This is problematic when blocking web ad as the block notifications are constantly appearing on the screen. I suggest that all web filter notifications be turned off on Windows 10 machines as the block message already appears in the browser when something is blocked.

  6. events description on local installation

    The whole informations, especially "Zugriff auf Verzeichnis translate.xxxxxxxxxx wurde gespert für..." on the events page on local installations cannot get read directly on the local client, because of one of this reasons:
    - window is to small
    - no popup on mouseover
    - more information at choose one of the events
    We are using 11.5.2 at the moment

  10. 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.

  11. SAV installer support for double-byte character

    As explained in the KBA http://sophtrac.green.sophos/default.aspx?articleid=67504, if logon user name contains double-byte character, installation process fails with no error.

    This is because AutoUpdate cannot recognize the path with double-byte character contained.

    However, it will be more likely that young generation who have accustomed to use touch-screen base devices (e.g. smartphones and tablets) than personal computer like to use human-friendly format (in this case double-byte character for user account).

    We've seen some cases arising in Japan typically from educational institute (e.g. colleges) where many youngster start using personal computer and define their user account with double-byte characters.

    If we could…

  16. Client firewall verify reputation and integrity through code signing certificates

    Actual process reputation trusting executed by client firewall relays on checksum verification. An application checksum can quickly change as effect of software updates or minor changes, this leads to long times spent whitelisting new checksum. Removing the checksum check is not an acceptable option beacuse this would also remove a security layer. The use of verification of digital signature of application certificate could leads a better way to trust\untrust procesees in such way as IE does with SmartScreen® & Extended Validation (EV) Code Signing Certificates features.

  17. Controlling 'Website blocked' Toasts/Notifications in Windows 10

    Currently we are able to control "Website blocked" notifications in Windows 7 by following the instructions contained in the following Sophos KB article.

    https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/120971.aspx

    This becomes necessary when enabling ad blocking inside a policy in Sophos Central, due to the frequency of blockages/notifications.

    The problem is that this method does not work in Windows 10. Sophos toasts/notifications can be disabled manually through the GUI with the following.

    Start Button > Settings > System > Notifications and Actions > Show notifications from these apps > Sophos Endpoint Security and Control

    I submitted support request #19194744 and the Sophos representative confirmed that…

  18. Add functionality to RMS such that it is compatible with Windows 10 Soft-Disconnect

    Currently, when the Windows 10 Soft-Disconnect feature is enabled, the presence of RMS prevents Windows from switching from the Wireless adapter to the Wired. This is because RMS keeps sessions to the Console server open indefinitely, and Soft-Disconnect is waiting for all open connections to be closed before making the transition.

    This request is to change RMS such that it supports Windows 10 Soft-Disconnect.

  20. 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.
