  1. Sophos Central - Web Gateway Policy - Notification should include the policy name

    Within the Notification Section in the Policy for Web Gateway on Central it does not automatically give the name of the Policy.

    Having the Name of the Policy or an Identifier will be useful for an IT Admin if a user is calling with and issue and they have several policies.

  4. Provide List of Web Control Categorized Sites

    There is currently no list available to administrators of the sites that fall into a category. This makes identifying false positives a guessing game as to why a site is being blocked. Recently our organization blocked Personal and Dating sites, only to have our marketing team be unable to access legitimate sites like Facebook. The reactive nature of having to submit false positives after a block occurs erodes the confidence in the sophos product. If administrators had a way to vet some high profile sites before enabling a category block it would go a long way. Support has advised that…

  7. Sophos Endpoint Web Control - Block file-types over HTTPS

    "Sophos Endpoint Web Control is HTTPS unaware and it will only be able to successfully blocked file-types over HTTP"

    With more sites running entirely over HTTPS. Blocking users from downloading certain file types becomes more unreliable each day.

  8. Temporary access to sites

    Through Web Gateway it would be great if we could allow access to sites temporarily. For example allow a policy access to Facebook or a news site for 1 hour. After that hour it would go back to being blocked.

  9. Possibility to activate Web Control only outside corporate LAN

    Possibility to activate Web Control only outside corporate LAN would be useful to increase security for traveling users and avoid a second layer of redundant security on the LAN.

  10. Quarantined machines need to actually tell you they are

    Recently had an issue with home users being blocked from accessing any website. Sophos just displayed a block message with no details.
    After two months of going through tech support I found them in the quarantined rule, removing them obviously resolved the issue.

    It would be fantastic if Sophos displayed the fact the machine was quarantined on the block message as this have saved me lots of time. I also believe it would benefit other customers as well.

  11. request classification button on website blocked page

    request classification button on "website blocked" page for policy blocked pages where the url in question has not yet been verified by a human.

    it is not productive for users or administrators if users are blocked from urls because an algorithm incorrectly classifies the content.

  12. Disable Web Control based on HeartBeat enabled Firewall

    It would be nice when a user is behind the Heartbeat enabled XG firewall, that the web policy and internet scanning could be disabled locally and allow the firewall to handle the protection of the site restrictions and only when a user is away from the firewall enable the web protection, since you have much more granular controls on website policy on the firewall side than you do sophos central.

  16. Web Control for Servers

    Sophos Cloud use to have web control on servers before the product split. With the new server product you are unable to configure web control policies. These policies are extremely useful for terminal services and other remote access tools.

    Also a good way of stopping admins looking at 'unsavory websites' from a non-filtered source.

    It can't take much to add back, after all, it's already available for on-premises servers.

  17. Ability to turn off local web protection when on-prem.

    Add the ability to turn off the web protection when on-prem, which would enable us to use the different web profiles offered by the UTM when on network.

    When off-prem the default profile which is already applied via the UTM to the endpoint would take over. The endpoint firewall settings get you half way to detect which network but doesn't have the ability to turn off and on the local web protection.

  20. Add admin comment field for Web Control url entry

    When adding sites to the allow or block list in Web Control, it would be great to have another field or 2 so that the Sophos admin can enter when the site is being added and a description for why the site is being added (eg. internal help desk ticket number)
