  1. 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.

  3. Anti Virus Schedule Weekly or Monthly

    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.

  4. 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…

  5. Scanning of USB upon mounting by OS

    Within our environment it is beneficial for USB to be scanned upon mounting by the OS. Is there a way to add a feature option for a policy to enable "Scan upon mounting".

  7. 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.

  8. Option for email alerts based on severity level

    Make it so that a user can customize email alerts to receive alerts by severity level. For example, a user can opt-out from low severity alerts while still receive email alerts for medium and high.

  11. 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.

  13. System Administrator

    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".

  15. Search feature for Scanning Exclusions - Detected Exploits

    Have you ever tried to add a Global Scanning Exclusion from detected exploits only to have to scroll for an hour trying to find it? If you have, then you are screaming for a search feature to allow you to find that detected exploit.

    Please add a search feature under "Global scanning exclusion" -> "Add exclusion" -> "Exclusion type: Detected Exploits"

    If you have a huge organization and are trying to find a specific exploit to exclude, this will allow you to do something else that day. :)

  16. Execution of Deep Scan On Demand from the client

    we are sophos partners and, for business with clients, we have need to show that our antivirus client has running deep scan.

    we wish that clients show the register that "Deep scan successful finished" and show the time and dathe of the scan.

    thanks.

  18. PUA

    I'd like to ask for the ability to finetune the PUA related configuration.
    For example I'd like to have the ability to exclude the PUA automatic cleaning on some specific devices, while keeping it working as usual on all the rest of the devices.
    Right now I have to add every exception manually, which is fine if we are in a "normal" environment (say: the PUA is a false positive) but it can be time consuming if the client is not "enforceable".
    This should be available only on the cloud management, not on the clients.
    Thanks for considering this idea.

  19. Exploit Prevention Endpoint URL Whitelist

    Were running SEC 5.51 and running Exploit Prevention Endpoints. The whitelisting capability works after its been logged to the console and can then be excluded. It would be handy to be able to have a whitelist similar to the one that exists in the AV endpoint. Specifically the ability to exclude specific URL's.

    We run a IIS intranet program for timekeeping/payroll. I know it can be excluded after the fact it has been detected but it would be a bonus if you could add specific exclusions.
