  1. Policy by group instead of group by policy

    Hello all!

    Personally, I do not know if there is anything going on in this direction, but I would like to suggest that it be overridden or at least given the possibility (as an additional resource for example) of managing policies by group.

    Examples:

    In the case of applications:

    Application | Sales | Projects | Marketing
    Dropbox | no | yes | no
    Skype | yes | yes | yes
    Photoshop | no | no | yes

    In the case of websites:

    Website | Sales | Projects | marketing
    Facebook | no | no | yes
    Google | yes |…

  2. Add a support link on your cloud admin site. It is frustrating when you cannot find a Contact Us link

    When a customer needs help, a contact us button on your cloud console will help them contact you.

  3. Make the Usage Summary graphs interactive

    Request from Customer:
    Would it be possible to make the Usage Summary graphs on the Central Dashboard interactive?
    While it is good to see the spread of Active/Inactive/Unprotected, it would be even better if we can click on these and be taken to a report showing exactly what these objects are.

  4. "Select all" option for alerts in Cloud

    I want to be able to mass select alerts in the Cloud console instead of individually clicking them one at a time to acknowledge them.

  5. When using Sophos Central. How do a have all my VM perform scans at different times? I am not using a Virtual Controller to the best of my k

    When using Sophos Central. How do a have all my VM perform scans at different times? I have a VMWare 6.x environment. The only way I can see how to do it currently is to build different policies and group several machines per policy with different scan times. Is there a more efficient way?

  6. Allow for complete control of the base policy in Sophos Central Endpoint Protection.

    It would be nice to have the ability to enable, disable, and/or fully customize all aspects of the base policy in Cloud endpoint protection. For example, some organizations may not want or need peripheral (device) control but currently you cannot disable it in the base policy. As the base policy is always assigned to computers/users, in addition to any custom policy, if you disable it in the custom policy (that is higher in rank than the base) the base policy turns it back on. What's the point of disabling it in a custom policy if the base overrides it.

    The…

  9. Copy base policies between customers in partner portal

    Need the ability to copy policies from one customer to another one,
    so you can create a one time base police setting for multiple customers.

  11. More identifiers from computers (serial, os patch level)

    Hi,

    During rollout of Endpoint, we found it was beneficial to capture the following details from the computer:

    MACHINE_ID=$(ioreg -c IOPlatformExpertDevice -d 2 | awk -F\" '/IOPlatformSerialNumber/{print $(NF-1)}')
    MODEL_ID=$(sysctl hw.model | cut -d" " -f 2)
    KERN_ID=$(sysctl kern.osrelease | cut -d" " -f 2)
    OS_ID=$(sw_vers | grep ProductVersion | cut -f 2)
    NRAM=$(sysctl hw.memsize | cut -d" " -f 2)
    RAM=$(echo $NRAM/1024/1024 | bc)

    Could the MCS agent capture this and report in the Cloud console?
    Similar details could be captured under windows using WMI

    Thanks,
    Sophos Cloud User

  12. Configure Alerting Thresholds in Cloud Console

    Allow administrator to configure thresholds for alerts in cloud console. Currently I receive many alerts for non-actionable items such as when a machine reports "Real-time protection has been disabled on a computer." Even though the computer is protected, a shut down or update causes this alert and a few moments later, the protection is OK. I need to be able to adjust this trigger threshold and the same on other items such as out-of date machines, missing updates, PUA detected, etc.

  13. Default Policy Applied To All Clients

    Currently we have to manually set an exclusion for each and every client and it is a bit tedious. When we onboard a client there are specific exclusions that need to be applied right out of the gate. If we could have an "MSP Policy Template" that is applied when we add the client to Central...That would be AMAZING.

  14. Allow SNMP Traps for Server Endpoints Managed Sophos Central

    We are using the Server Endpoint protection from Sophos Central. The installed client has the user interface to send SNMP traps to a 3rd party device.
    It would be ideal to:
    1) Have SNMP traps sent from the protected systems when a virus (or other alert) is found
    2) Have this feature configurable on a per server/group/policy basis within the Sophos Central tool
    3) Allow for multiple/unlimited snmp trap destinations per server/group/policy

  16. Enterprise Distribution Installer Package on Cloud Endpoint & Server Protection

    The full installer of Endpoint & Server Protection is 16.70 MB as at 03 Aug 2016. It is doubtfully a full installer and will requires addition download during deployment.

    There is a KB guiding how to repackage a real full installer. It requires installing the solution on a temporary PC. It takes up too much resource and effort. (see http://sophos.com/kb/121318)

    Ready to use enterprise distribution installer is needed for enterprise solution. Many software vendor is doing it. It is something basic, e.g. Java RE, SE, EE, Acrobat Reader, Avast, Mcafee, Kasperskey.

  17. Linking from People-Managementlist to show Computers in Central

    If you are under Computers you can click a link to get to the Userdetails. But can't click in People-List to go to the used Computers.

  18. Centrally manage all Quarantined Email

    Allow administrators to centrally manage ALL quarantined email from Sophos Central. This would allow an admin to release quarantined items in the event a user was unable to do so via the self service portal. It would also allow an admin to periodically review the entire orgs quarantined items, make sure users are not missing any false positives, and release them if they are discovered. A button to add a sender to the global allowed list would be nice as well.

  19. Implicit All Users group in Sophos Cloud for Policy assignment

    The base policy is implicitly applied to all users, if you create a new policy it can only be explicitly assigned to users/groups.

    It doesn't appear to be possible to create a new 'base' policy that is implicitly applied to all users, that is, a new base policy with a higher priority than the old base policy.

    If the console had an 'All Users' implicit group that was populated with all users automatically, you could assign this group for this specified behaviour.

    The request for this feature comes from the desire to roll out new functionality selectively.

    Currently adding any…

  20. Scan all Endpoints from Sophos Cloud

    I think it would be a good idea if you could bulk select protected devices and start and AV scan from the console, we had a suspect email come through and wanted to scan all computers just to be safe, the only way to do this is by creating a policy and applying it to all computers.
