  1. 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.

  3. Add additional colums to the reporting file

    My application Control report does not indicate which applications are blocked. Please add a column for Application Control Group and the current status, Blocker or Authorized, for individual applications.

  4. To add additional programs from launching i.e OS Sierra

    Users who are administrators on their Devices (Macs in this case) have the ability to upgrade to the latest OS released by Mac (or install any program they want on their systems).

    Is there away to add a custom Application Control to block certain Applications from launching?

  5. We need a Sophos - Rule for selective Macro using. As an Example, we have to disable all the Macros, but not some local own Macros!

    We need a Sophos - Rule for selective Macro using. As an Example, we have to disable all the Macros, but not some local own Macros!
    The Problem is, if you disable the Macros within a GPO, the Excel Functions/Macros don't run anmore. Your own VBA used for Outlook as an Example can't be run oder selfcertificated.
    We would like to have control like the Hardware Control for the USB - Sticks as an Example!
    Best regards Juergen Linder

    Under Review  ·  Karl responded

    We discussed this when developing the application control policy for Sophos Central managed endpoints. At the time we decided to maintain feature parity with on-premise managed endpoints (SEC). While this capability is not available it is on our short list but does not appear on any planned delivery timelines at the moment. We evaluate and prioritize enhancements for the product multiple times per year.

  7. App Control creation of white and blacklists compared to adware and pua

    It would be helpful if the list of applications is not only given by categories.
    Like by adware or pua the possibility to detect applications that are added to a custom list where you can decide to allow or prohibit the single application.
    After the detection mode you would change to blocking mode where the black/white listings will be enforced.

  9. Cloud application control what isn't in compliance

    I get alerts that say "Policy non-compliance: Application Control".
    This information isn't useful, I need to know which application isn't in complacence, so that I can decide if I need to unblock it or uninstall the software.

  10. Setting Application Exemptions per device

    I'd like to request a way to allow an application to run on a single machine without moving the machine to its own folder, creating a new policy, etc…
    This feature would be ideal when we have one-off applications that we don’t want to allow all people to use.

  11. App Control list

    I would like to be able to extract the effective block/allow actions on Application Control. I plan to have 5 different policies and would need an export of each one for management approval. I see no way to do this currently, except to click through each group setting.

  14. Share the applications added each month to application control policy

    There has been cases when an already existing application was blocked suddenly because sophos adds to the list. It has caused significant disruptions in the company. It would make sense to share the applications added each month prior to pushing it out.

  15. yandex

    hi,

    There are problems with YandEx. There are thirty application types from google. For Yandex, we need that much detail.

    web side and application side are very inadequate.

    I want a download / upload solution for yandex applications.
