  1. Alert for Formatted Devices

    Sophos to include a way to alert Administrators to PCs formatted [MAC andress] devices so that we know when and where a device has been formatted and whether or not Sophos has been reinstalled if it has the MAC information with the discovery of Sophos network.

      • Enterprise Admin to Control the Sub Estate License

        Hi, I would like to request a feature in a Sophos Enterprise Admin whereby, the Enterprise Admin are able to assign how many licenses are required for each sub estate.

        For Example:

        I have 250 licenses with 5 different sub-estate. So, as the Enterprise Admin, i can limit the license or control the license for each sub-estate by giving 50 licenses. And each sub-estate, when they are given 50 licenses, they can not simply take/use other sub-estate licenses.

        • Deletion Infected Archive File

          Dear Concern,

          If any kind of malicious content in any archive file that should delete all archive file from system, rather extract and clean only infection admin should have that setting on Cloud portal where admin will decide to delete infected archive.

            Extend API with Device status

            For housekeeping purposes we compare asset status of different systems (Eg. AD, Deployment systems, monitoring, etc...). Reporting services would need access to the computers and servers list. The API is a perfect tool for this but it lacks requirend fields....

            • Sophos Home Beta - "Reboot for Update" Notification - Disable or Mute

              Today I've got an update notification that told me to reboot to complete the update. Although I usually don't mind this, it threw me out of the game I was playing (full screen, DirectX 12 application). I clicked "remind me later" and went back into the game. This happened again after around 30 minutes and I decided to just leave the message there, which fixed the issue of the game being minimized.

              Although a reboot seems to be required for certain updates it would be nice to be able to disable or mute the message - or that it does…

                • Create Sophos Removal or Cleanup Tool

                  Several other major antivirus/endpoint protection vendors offer tools to uninstall or clean up after their own products. Earlier this week I found one of our protected clients somehow had 2 different versions of Sophos antivirus on it and only one would uninstall cleanly. Instead of Sophos offering a tool to clean things up, I was forced to use a Microsoft "Fix It" tool to remove it. When the removal finished, there were still 3 service entries that were left behind, as well as Sophos files in "Program Files (x86)" and ProgramData. Furthermore, there was still a Sophos software key with…

                  • Add eDirectory Support for Syncing Users & Groups

                    Please consider adding Micro Focus(formerly Novell) eDirectory(NDS) support. We have attempted to use the AD Sync utility for this without We have customers running native eDirectory and DSFW environments who would benefit tremendously from having group synchronization to eliminate the manual management of group membership and policy assignment in Sophos Central. eDirectory is still very popular in many school systems internationally.

                        Add an option to scan (besides daily at certain time) weekly of monthly. Some scans on large drives take a whole day and don't need to be scanned weekly but rather 2 weekly or monthly.

                        • Add option that forces full system scans after scheduled start is missed

                          Hi,

                          we've Sophos Endpoint Security and Control 10.3 running in a very large and distributed environment (3000+ machines). Not all of our computers do run at the time we configured a scheduled scan - as there are people that e.g. work only 4 days a week. Sophos AV currently don't care - so we've a lot of machines that does not meet our compliance requirements.

                          Would it be possible to add an administrative option like 'Run task after scheduled start is missed'?

                          BTW: Such an option even exists Windows Task Scheduler - so it cant be hard to create and…

                          • Thin Client/Lightweight Version

                            For thin clients that do not have more than a few GB to spare for an anti-virus solution, a lightweight version of Sophos which is conscious about the amount of space it uses would be helpful.

                                  • Device Encryption - Encrypt targeted data drives

                                    It would be good if data drives can be selected specifically for encryption. Currently it is not possible to exclude certain partition (for example HP_RECOVERY) from encryption. The option "Encrypt startup only" is sometimes insufficient.

                                        As I look thru the list of ideas there is no time stamp as to when the idea was added or when some comments.

                                          There need to be the ability to set a password policy for when users set a password during drive encryption. Encryption doesn't matter much if the password is "a".
