  1. Block Adobe Acrobat versions which are EOL

    Adobe Acrobat 8 is available to blacklist. Update the option to allow blocking EOL versions of Adobe Acrobat & Acrobat Pro. Today, version 11 or earlier is end of life.

  3. Block Grammarly

    Grammarly can be installed without admin rights into a user's profile, but requires an admin to... fail to remove it. I ended up torching the folder containing it, but it's left a mess on that PC. Since Grammarly is effectively a keylogger that sends to the cloud, it doesn't meet our security policies.

  6. Block Add ons in browser that will allow user to connect through VPN and by pass the firewall rules of Sophos UTM.

    Block Add ons in a browser that will allow user to connect through VPN and by pass the firewall rules. We can't allow employees who has a knowledge on this yet they are freely using the VPN connection to by pass the firewall rules even the company's rules and regulations.

  8. Add the capability to create path based software restrictions, similar to Group Policy.

    Restrict executable files from running in local user paths.
    Group Policy Software Restrictions allows this based on Path (and other things) but the path one we use a lot for know malware that runs from Local %appdata% or other sub directories. You could then allow exceptions for those programs that are allowed to run form here.

  9. Application Control / Category Games: Blocking game launcher (e.g. Steam, Uplay) instead of single games.

    Blocking Game Launchers (e.g. Steam, Uplay)
    Most new games require certain launchers like steam or uplay to start - I think, these apps are missing in the current app list. I recommend to add such launchers to the app list which makes it much more easier to block games instead of trying to block single games (the list never can be complete).

  12. Reporting - Application Control

    Please add an option/additional column "Category" in report for Application Control. Now we can choose Application Control Expression * for all or select particular Application in report.
    Given that you already have defined categories it would be fine if we could make report e.g. for category "Remote management tool" for last two months.

  13. Application Control - Sysinternals

    While the SysInternals tools are very useful for Sys Admins, however regular uses don't have a need for these tools. It would be nice to be able to better monitor the use of these tools via application control.

  15. application control paths

    Provide path information of detected items in the Sophos cloud console and in the local logs. Having a detected item with no path information as to where it's located makes mitigation very difficult.

  16. Build Out Command Line Management Options

    Expand the command line options for the installer/uninstaller.
    1. Be able to select with a cmd line switch which component to deploy
    -- example "sophosinstall.exe -install:aex -q" to install av, encryption and intercept-x
    2. Be able to assign a client to a generic installer. As an MSP it's a pain in the rear to generate an installtion file for each client.
    -- example sophosinstall.exe -install:ax -tenant:<unique central client id>
    3. Similar functionality to uninstall
    -- example sophosinstall.exe -remove:ax

  17. Application Control - Dell Bloatware

    I am not sure for other PC manufacturers, but it would be nice to block/restrict applications such as:

    Dell Foundation Services
    Dell Backup and Recovery
    Dell Digital Delivery
    Dell Protected Workspace

    Thanks!

  20. In App Control: Office Suites - Can you add the Older versions prior to Office 2003?

    In App Control: Office Suites - Can you add the Older versions prior to Office 2003?

    We've recently been getting phishing attacks via email and they are containing older word attachments.

    We would greatly appreciate it if we could block those ancient versions of Office in our Policy instead of worrying if our users are going to open those attachments.
