  1. Uninstall and Repair Endpoints via Sophos Enterprise Console

    The uninstall and repair options via console would make it easier to manage a large number of machines, mainly because sometimes it is difficult to get access to some of them.

    • Sophos Enterprise Console - Amend Computer with Errors to seperate out devices that only require a reboot

      I manage around 8000 devices across 2 domains. What would really assist me is separating out computers that only have errors about requiring a reboot. With exploit prevention requiring a reboot for every update it's hard to differentiate between a device that legitimately has an error, or just needs rebooting. You could have errors where it is now a warning tab next to it?

      • Manage Sophos remotely via command line

        Trying to automate the process for Sophos Protection for SCCM. I would like to be able to remove a machine from the database (single machine) so that when the machine is reimaged it gets put into the correct group and no need to worry about the wrong policies being applied?

        • On-access from SEC: Exclusions of FileSystems

          Hello,

          when using on-access from the Sophos Enterprise Console (SEC):

          - currently 2 modes are possible for exclusions:
          " Exclude Items": Files and directories can be excluded by path.
          " Exclude remote files": Excluding remote files currently excludes the following by filesystem: nfs, cifs, smb, smbfs,coda, afs

          - Our customers need possibility in SEC to exclude as much filesystems as the command « ExcludeFileSystems » permits to do in the Sophos Linux agent, which supported FS list is :
          https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/118932

          Example:
          To have possibility to only exclude a filesystem of type "fuse" from the SEC.

          Is it an evolution planned…

            • Change DB Port during installation

              If you install the SEC, you can only use the default DB port. But in an environment with high security rules, it is not possible to use the default DB port. About that, it will be very important to change the DB port in the setup. Without this, an installation is not possible.

              • More configuration options for email notifications in SEC

                In SEC you can only configure the smtp server and the email address used for sending mails. According to the KB there are some registry keys for configuring smtp authentication.

                But unfortunately there is no way to enable SSL/TLS for sending mails.

                Please add this feature, so that the smtp auth credentials won't be transmitted in cleartext over the network.

                • Disable Tamper Protection through Command Line

                  Hi,

                  Somethimes, managing 1000+ or even 5000+ machine its difficult, even more if we don't have built-in features in the console to remediate/uninstall corrupt/broken installations.

                  But, the main problem is not that. The problem is that we CANNOT disable Tamper Protection remotely to reinstall/remove Sophos AV, in the following cases:

                  1) Console was erased/failed and there's no cert/db/registry backup (all Endpoint with Tamper enabled)
                  2) Broken installations dont apply Tamper Policies (to disable it)
                  3) Migrated console (don't have the old one).

                  All this would be solved by having the chance to disable Tamper through Command Line. Example

                  Case A:…

                  • Definition updating

                    Currently there is no alert / status change for an endpoint who's definition files are out of date, meaning, let's say you have a fully protected client, but, sophos update (not engine as that alerts if it fails) but rather JUST the definitions fail to update.

                    we would like the ability to be able to either configure a threshold for alerting, or be able to simply enable/disabled alerting for definitions not updated.

                    we have many endpoints that will fail to update for days, and the result is a system that while there are no alerts, is potentially not protected.

                    my…

                        • Bulk Policy Changes

                          Enable bulk (various) changes across multiple policies in complex environments with a large number of groups and policies. Instead of having to manually change a setting in each policy one by one (for example, deselect bandwidth restrictions, in each updating policy), it would be benifical to have the ability to select multiple policies and apply the change to all of them. Changing a single setting across multiple policies manually is very time consuming and resource intensive, especially if you have a large amount of policies (100+).

                            • Managing right click scan in SEC

                              We need that "right click scan" clean up the malware or PUA when detected but by default this only put it in quarentine and the malware is not removed or cleanup.

                              Is needed to configure right click scan but do it on 500 endpoints is not scalable.

                              The management of "right click scan" in SEC is needed.

                                    • Restriction to Discover Computers

                                      Problem:
                                      We are using Sophos in a multivendor environment which contains over 200,000 clients. The "Discover Computers" button is available for every Sophos admin, because there is no option to restrict this feature. Regularly somebody who is looking for a client presses the discover computer button. Now every network device which is reachable will be imported into the Sophos Enterprise Console and listed as an "unmanaged device". If we don't restart the SEC, sometimes more than 200,000 “unknown devices” are listed in the default "unassigned" group. We can delete these clients but they will remain in the Sophos database until…

                                      • Publish a KB on the function and limitations of SOPHOS SafeGuard Enterprise Management Console?

                                        We have noticed that we are unable to do a mass export or wildcard search with the Enterprise console.

                                        After logging a ticket, the support team has suggested the extraction of information via SQL query instead.

                                        A comprehensive user guide for the functionalities and limitations of the UI console would be very helpful.

                                        • Enterprise Console REST API

                                          Provide a REST (or other) API into SEC. Basic features such as creating groups, assigning policy, adding/deleting/moving machines would be immensely helpful. Nearly all major software applications now have some form of accessible API that allows common tasks to be automated. This idea was suggested back in early 2015, but sadly was denied.
