  1. DLP Support for Mac OS

    Apparently Mac OS is not currently supported by Sophos Endpoint DLP. We have a decent number of Mac laptops in use in our environments and have a need to protect PII. Please consider building out the DLP module to support the Mac OS.

      • DLP logs should include USB transfers in Sophos Admin Reporting, not just end user client

        I created a USB DLP policy to allow, but track all USB transfers. Transfers are tracked locally on the end point, but the log data is not transferred to reporting in the sophos admin console. It would be incredibly useful to see the same information that is tracked in the local log in the admin console as well. Other DLP policy matches make it there, why can't these?

        • The Data Control feature is incompatible with Secure Boot. Secure Boot is the foundation for Microsoft's Windows security stack since Window

          Sophos Data Control feature in the endpoint solution is incompatible with Secure Boot. Secure Boot is the foundation for Microsoft's Windows security stack since Windows 8. Data Control under Secure Boot blocks all USB file transfers. Many companies require DLP solutions for compliance and will likely switch products if Sophos can't find a way to work with Secure Boot.

          • Detailed visibility into DLP alerts

            I would like to see what Sophos saw that caused it to trigger a DLP alert. It would be nice to have detailed visibility on what was detected. A SS#? A PAN? A Date of Birth? That way we have concrete evidence of what was detected so we may approach the end user with solid data rather than a general name of the policy.

            • DLP Save to Remote Resource

              It would be nice if there was an optional value that could be set to allow the ability to save files opened over a network share or USB device back to the original device without requiring the need to save locally and move the saved file back to the network/USB resource when DLP is enabled. Currently, on Windows systems, it appears this can only be done when Windows Indexing is disabled.

                        • Option not to capture download events

                          I have notice that pretty much all our downloads as well as uploads are captured as events by the DLP engine when setting policy for web browsers.

                          This can mean the controlled items list becomes huge and the central events log is way to big to get anything meaningful in terms of data leaving via web.

                          All the data loss tools I've used generally only capture outbound events, as this is the nature of Data Loss Prevention.

                          • Data Control - Remove alert and logging on events when download file from browser (SEC).

                            When downloading a file from browser with data control policy. There is an alert and logging on Data Events. (example: blocking of spreadsheet with content rule)
                            This happens on both file rule and content rule.

                            Also, the log event's source path and destination type is interchanged.

                                  • Remove the requirement of "Tel" prefixing phone numbers in order for DLP to detect them

                                    Currently, phone numbers will only be detected by DLP if they have "Tel" before them. It is unlikely that phone numbers will have "Tel" before them, rendering this option quite unhelpful.

                                    • Polycom trio realpresence 8800 support

                                      We have several Polycom Trio RealPresense 8800 devices, when using those conference units with the Polycom People+Content IP software to present a screen through the device to other users, the data control policy blocks the USB connection as per logs in ticket #7022359, rather than disable the data control it would be idea to have this added in. Final notes in the noted ticket

                                      Though you have rules set to Allow file transfer / Allow file transfer on acceptance, data control will still restrict the transfer since Polycom RealPresence Trio is not listed as a filter on data control.

                                      • Disable Scanning Message for Sophos Data Control

                                        When Sophos Data Control is scanning for PII, I would like the ability to disable the "The file is being scanned for sensitive data. Please wait." message. This message would cause confusion among users and unnecessarily increase call volume for my helpdesk.

                                          We enable DLP on all desktops and web browsers however we have an internal system where we need to upload files to using a web browser. We would like to exclude URL's based on a list so these can be sent using any browser without the DLP client kicking in and scanning the files.
