  1. Generate md5sum or sha256sums for all Sophos downloads

    Our support case [#6921523] highlights this particular issue, in that there is no way to verify downloads from Sophos as being complete. We had an installation of Sophos Endpoint Protection, which despite being unpacked and installed was inhibiting problems. The solution was downloading again and clean installation.

    Had there been md5sums or sha256sums available for the downloads, I could have verified the download, if the checksum had matched, I would know that everything was successful.

    It would have saved all the time and effort, than opening a case which took a few days to find out it wasn't to do…

  2. for on access scan exclusions, %username% as variable

    I moved into the problem to exclude a specific folder in the user Profile of all our Notebook users.
    Right now it is not possible to exclude folders like:
    c:\users\%username.......
    this should be a common issue, due to the fact, that some programms need exclusions there: for example our mail archivieving system uses this folder to prevent user data in the responsible user profile and in some cases it's slowing down the system

  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. Allowing savservice to start delayed or have the updates check non running services more frequently

    Sophos Endpoint. We have had issues with savservice freezing the PC after login. If the savservice could be started automatically but delayed that would solve our problem. Currently we have savservice set to manually start. An hour after login the update feature checks to make sure all services are running and if not savservice gets started. If admistrators could CHANGE the time frame from and hour down to a few minutes. We wouldn't have a system on our network unprotected for an hour after restart.

  5. 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…

  7. Ping Request for computers

    Ping request feature for those environments whose AD hasn't been cleaned of old computer accounts. This way you'll know which PCs wont be able to connect because they're offline and can fix the issue before applying the AV or Patch, saving time in troubleshooting.

  11. Port Behaviour Change

    Sophos Product Information

    Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Protection

    Version in Production:10.3

    Feature Request Summary

    We would like the Sophos clients to close any existing connections once the activity is completed (i.e updating av defs, policies etc as established by the
    server)

    AND THEN the Sophos Client establishes a new connection to a specific port on the Sophos Server if it needs to communicate with a new session.

    Alternatively the Sophos Client could have a keep-alive process that keeps the connection between the Client and Server valid, so that if can re-use that connection if needed.

    How will this new feature…

  12. how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite guide

    There is no clear technical information on your website on how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite.
    Web Appliance has a different process to the email appliance, help about does not show same info on the 2 Linux appliances.
    The Mobile Appliance has a different process to re-license than the Linux appliances. The Enterprise console has a 4th separate process which is different to all the appliances. Very hard to get clear information on how to re-license. Sophos tech support tell you to pay your supplier to do it for you. Not hard to do once you figure…

  18. 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.

  20. 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".
