  1. Virus Data Update - More frequent please!

    As of today 29 May, my Sophos Virus Data is dated 2 May as the latest.
    This is a bit too outdated and it caused problem to login to some system that does not allow login if your AV signature is older than 14 days.

    May I suggest Sophos beef up its update frequency?

  2. Sophos Central installer auto update

    When deploying Sophos central via scripts using the downloaded installer file these fail when the file is out of data and you have to re download the installer file there needs to be an automated way of keeping this updated, we have > 400 clients and keeping each of there install location up to date isn't practical

  3. Speed up download time

    The Sophos Anti-Virus updates on a MacBook Air are incredibly slow. This happens at least once/day when the computer is awakened. So downloading email messages is delayed 5 or 10 minutes while Sophos works. Very frustrating. Is there another way?!!

  4. non-Windows relay server for updates

    Can we deploy a non-Windows OS, or even get an OVA for virtualization...or an ISO to install on bare metal? Update servers are fairly lightweight. In this case, a simple web server on the front-end. Windows desktop OS has TCP limitations. Windows server has (for us) been unreliable for the last 3 years, requiring constant reboots every 1-2 weeks. All of the extra stuff that comes with Windows is not necessary (AFAIK) to pull updates from a central server (or Sophos), then serve it via http.

  5. AutoUpdate should be way more than an hour

    I think that having AutoUpdate set for an hour could be very noisy and we had an incident last Monday where there were a bunch of processes triggered by automatic updates. Is there a way to increase this to once or twice, maybe 3 times a day instead of every hour?

  6. Updateservers free configuration possible (at the moment only in standalone installers available)

    Please make the option available to configure the first and second updateserver free in SEC maged Endpoints.

    At the moment i cant enter the Sophos Udateservers as the primary server/primary Updatelocation.

    This would be Helpfull in case the headquarter has only limited upload bandwith and brachoffices get their updates from headquarter.

  7. audit feature to track changes to policies

    I would like to know if there is a way to capture a list on excel compatable format of the various categories and options selected in each policy created. Especially in the controlled application
    list of each policy, so I can make sure they are kept updated based on the reporting and alerts raised. Or if there is a way to report on an audit of changes made to any policies created in Sophos cloud for checking or reference if there is a query helps with
    cybsecurity essentials

  8. Single Download for a Full Installer that is automatically updated with the latest updates.

    Some of my customers have really bad internet which means that installing your software is beyond a joke for 30 or 40 PCs, I ended up creating a single installer from your white papers however a location to download a FullInstaller that always kept up to date with downloads would be really useful meaning that only future updates would need downloading.

    We’ll look again at the issue of “fat” or “single” installers in the future. We are currently working on an even thinner installer but that should pave the way to more flexibility and could mean an easier way to create your own customised (read fat) installer. We stopped creating the fat installers as they become out of date very quickly and we now also have more components to download and install for some licenses which would mean creating even more installers, better to have a “vanilla” installer that all can use and a method for customers who need a fat installer to create their own. No promises on a timeline for this yet though.

  9. Sophos update duration for endpoint

    Sophos update duration for endpoint clients.

    we would like the feature to set day and time for sophos update for endpoint clients. currently Sophos policy only allow you specify number minutes to wait for endpoint client check for update.

    our studio machines performance is effected by sophos update. we would like ability set endpoint update to occur ony at Mid-night to 2:00 am every day of the week.

  10. Delayed AutoUpdate

    We would like to see a feature to delay the autoupdate check on the Mac endpoint client. When Sophos starts the autoupdate process right away after a user is logged in, the machine can take a bit of a performance hit with all of the other processes starting up at the same time.

  11. Real time notification for updates

    Feature Request Summary

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?: Stop dealing with outdated error messages as they spook the customer

    How would you rate the importance of this feature?; 1 = Critical, 5 = Nice-to-have: 2

    Notes:

    This seems like less of a ‘feature’ to be requested and more of a bug to be fixed, but I have filled in the form regardless. I think an issue that occurred
    in the past and has been deemed resolved or superseded in this case by a succesful update then there is no need for a popup alert regarding this…
