  2. SSP communicate to Sophos Mgmt for SXL4 queries

    Can you have the option to have the endpoints communicate the Sophos Mgmt server for the SLX4 queries? This would be helpful for endpoints not connected to the Internet

  3. your product comes up as number one solutions for the financial industries; can you provide a network overview of hp-ux,solaris and rhel.

    technical presales: a solution going into testing stage for the financial industry. before it is accepted according to ITIL process; can you provide an overview of an existing solution; a windows os with console server and rhel, solaris, hpux end points. Sophos is a leading producer of end point security; enhancing financial business visibility would be highly beneficial for Sophos. If I oversaw this as you already have done this on the website I apologize. A build yourself part of the website; interactive for visitors would be even better. Thanks for reading.

  4. Sharepoint - Ability to select the data & log file locations

    Customer installed Sharepoint and error was because the log location on the database was set to a location that didn't exist.

    Client would like to be able to select the data & log file locations,
    which is pretty standard on database installs

  5. Server to Server Migration

    Hey there,

    at the moment i´m in a internal project to migration the enterprise console with clients and policys to a new server.

    I think it would be great to install a new server and then to migrate over the enterprise console the clients to the new server.

    Kind regards

    Björn

  6. Add automatic restart notice on the GUI version after install of the "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages

    Add automatic restart notice after install of the "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages. A new install of SESC requires a reboot to set the changes. Currently the GUI version of "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages does not provide a notice the install is complete so the user has to quess when to reboot the computer.

  7. Add automatic update after install of the "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages

    Add automatic update after install of the "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages. The installer design presently only installs Sophos and does not do an update at the end of the install. This forces new installers being built to stay current when used as an in place install. If there was an automatic update after install the file differences would come down smoothly over the network connection.

  9. 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.

  13. Create Preconfig able to set all preferences of SAV

    It would be very helpful to be able to set all preferences in SAV for Mac with Terminal to create a preconfigured installer. The options for the update location and the onaccess scan are not enough.

  16. No info for sophosav user/group in the manual

    In the SAV for Linux and UNIX setup guide does not write
    sophosav user and group info.

    Some customer complained about there is no info what will SAV installer changes.

    In the manual's uninstall section it writes
    =====
    The uninstall script deletes:
    ■ All entries from the system startup that are associated with Sophos Anti-Virus.
    7
    ■ The Sophos Anti-Virus man pages in /usr/share/man.
    ■ The savscan on-demand scanner in /usr/local/bin.
    ■ /opt/sophos-av and its contents
    =====

    Is it possible to write a info install.sh does those things and create a sophoav user and group?

  20. Add name of namedscan to reporting for the "Threat detected" email

    Add name of namedscan to reporting for the "Threat detected" email.

    It currently says:

    "A threat was detected during an on-demand scan. Details follow:" ...

    this suggestion is to add the name of the scan to the email. The reason is to allow the admin to respond to the alert my referring to the specific scan on the host with the discovered issue.

    in addition I would suggest the option for a scan run an no issues found but "X files scanned" and "Y errors occured" during the scan " $$ named scan name".
