  1. 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?

  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. POP UP ALLOW / DISALLOW in Endpoint Firewall

    It would be nice to have POP UP control to ALLOW and DISALLOW new applications as they activate in Windows 10 just like it did in Windows 7. I am NOT a computer scientist nor a geek so I do not know what programs I need to NOW manually add to the firewall that I had previously automatically allowed prior to upgrading to Windows 10, nor do I know all the components that need to be added when there are multiple sub-program calls that need to be allowed.

    This not only concerns applications, but even those parts of the Windows…

  5. End user control for some features

    Every other AV we've used in corporate environments allows for SOME ability by the end user to add exclusions if needed, yet still disallowing them the ability to shut down protection overall. I'm told by Sophos support this is not an option at all here.

    If you have a company with someone overseas, who is on the phone with a software vendor who is saying they should exclude a specific file, it would help if they COULD do that, rather than waiting 8 or 10 hours for someone to wake up on the other side of the world who can…

  6. 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.

  7. In the runtime section you have Java, Flash and Silverlight listed however in its entirety. Is it possible to expand the list to the version

    In the runtime section you have Java, Flash and Silverlight listed however in its entirety. Is it possible to expand the list to the versions of these products as you do with Adobe Reader. We would like to block specific versions of Java, Flash and Silverlight?

  8. 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.

  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.

    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.

  12. 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.
