  1. status

    Include the status of the Sophos Central platform in the login to your instance of Sophos Central. Alternatively, when there is an outage affecting the region you are connecting to, throw up some type of notification upon login so that way you don't start trying to install endpoints only to have them fail.

  2. TPM State

    Since we can see TMP State on the client, why not have that same data present at Sophos Central. That way you can create a group from that value and have those machines encrypted.

  3. migration

    Problem: Migration utility (from SEC managed endpoints) works only in one rare situation for endpoint standard without firewall.

    Solution: Possibility to uinstall ALL features which are not in central like firewall and patch as a part of the migration process.

  4. Log - Suppression, Thresholds and Client Re-registration tools

    Enable the ability to change the log thresholds for sending out alerts. We get way too many false positives where we get an alert, logon to the machine and the AV client does not show anything evidently wrong. And if there is something wrong there is no way to "know" of a certain component of the agent is or is not actually running. Missed updates are frustratingly repetitive. If a machine misses updates for say a week that might be a good threshold to notify on. But not just for a day. Also enable the option to disable some alerts…

  5. Control Updates Sophos Central

    Can we get some actual information on the control updates page? "Newest" and "Oldest" are terms that mean nothing to me or the rest of my team. The control updates page should give actual information on what version computers are currently on and what is available to update to. This feels like a half-baked feature at best.

  6. user is able to disable sophos servics from the safe mode. and if the services got disabled from the safe mode and then again entering in n

    we are using sophos central .user is able to disable sophos servics from the safe mode. and if the services got disabled from the safe mode and then again entering in normal mode the services are still remained disable which means no policy is working in system if the services got disabled in safe mode.
    Do some changes so that user will not get access to disable the services from safe mode.

  7. Cryptoguard enabled as a "recommended setting" within server policies

    CryptoGuard is disabled when using "recommended settings" but CryptoGuard is a recommended setting by sophos.

    Could I request that we enable Cryptoguard when using recommended settings?

  8. Don't show mac bootcamp as an available volume to encrypt

    Currently, if a Mac has bootcamp installed there is no way to encrypt both of those volumes, but Sophos continually marks the Mac computer as not being encrypted even though the main Mac volume is encrypted. There should be a way to either exclude the volume from requiring encryption, or if you detect a volume is labeled BOOTCAMP, like they almost always are, then you don't consider that a volume that can be encrypted. It ends up throwing us off when trying to reconcile the encryption on our machines, because there will be errors stating the machine is not encrypted.

  9. Can't change "The Sophos Central software on this computer has missed two updates." setting . This is overloading my ticket system

    Can't change "The Sophos Central software on this computer has missed two updates." setting . This is overloading my ticket system . If someone is offline it sends emails every 2 times it misses an update. compared to the amount of updates vs the amount of tickets overwhelming my helpdesk . Customers should have the right to adjust all alerting

  10. Active directory sync

    Sync AD devices to central console or sync deleted AD devices out of console, so we do not have to manually remove devices from sophoscentral console every time a device gets replaced in our environment.

  11. Sophos Central AD sync support for cloud Domain

    It will be great if Sophos Central could sync with cloud Domain for example jumbcloud.com that support LDAP query

  12. Lock down Events Reporting

    I know there a lot of reports request. But it would be nice to have an automatic lockdown event report that can be sent to the administrators every day .
    It should list all the events of all the locked down servers. So we do not have to check one by one every server for events.

  13. force scan

    We would *love* to have the ability to force a full scan on selected and all devices which currently is not available from the Sophos Central. We would also like the ability to force/push updates to selected and all devices. Having to select each device individually to perform this task is not favorable with a large deployment.

  14. Sophos Central: Link Policy Violators Direct to People

    From the Sophos Central main Dashboard you get a nice big number showing the policy violations that have been blocked, so you click on the number and it then produces a list of "Violators" and their corresponding "Top 5 Violations" categories.

    Currently we have to manually go to People and search for these violators, but surely the capability should exist to just make the violator name (DOMAIN\username) a hyperlink that when you click it, it takes you directly to that person's status page, instead of having to go via People, search, click?

    Wouldn't be too onerous i am sure as…

  15. display the FQDN of a device

    Hi,
    So we know what subdomain or domain a computer is in, can we have the FQDN name visible on all devices?
    We had two servers with the same name but in different domains for the same site. Confusing yes! But it would be easy if we saw the FQDN (device.domain.com) although the IP can tell us what subnet mask the machine is on, it would be a lot faster with a FQDN

    Thanks

    G

  16. Display number of Machines when managing software

    When adding new software to managed endpoints - i.e intercept x - to be able to see number of machines assigned vs bridgeable.

  17. Customizing setup link sent through email

    The ability to customize the components in the download link sent to the end user through Central would be nice. Not everyone wants Intercept-x or encryption, and having to go to Endpoint - Computers - Manage is unneeded steps.

  18. Central console sorting and searching

    The console would be about 5,273,618 times more useful (roughly speaking) if the tables were sortable by all columns, not just by name.

    And almost equally useful would be to have search fields be able to search in the middles of strings (with or without wildcards), not just from the beginnings.

  19. Host IP in all events

    To better understand the Sophos Central logs. We know that device (endpoint) IP addresses are not included in the log. We’re attempting to learn more about the endpoint_id field. Can we include the following:

    • A field that in any way represent an IP address (IPv6) or similar?
    • Is there any lookup table available within Sophos Central that would translate endpoint_id to host?
