  2. In reports can we get in detailed report (eg. Out of Date Computers- Computer Name, Username, Location/group, IP Address, Last updated Date)

    In reports can we get in detailed report like below:
    1. Out of Date Computers- Computer Name, Username, Location/group, IP Address, Last updated Date
    2. Up to Date Computers- instead of count can you provide all system details like Computer Name, Username, Location/group, IP Address, Last updated Date
    3. Authority to select required column in all kind of reports which is available in Console so we can customize the same as per our need

  3. https AutoUpdate

    In order to add extra security to our company’s Sophos Endpoint (Anti Virus) Update proceedings I was going to change Primary update source to URL like described in the following link.

    https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/38238.aspx

    Nevertheless according to these two posts from Forum it seems not to be possible to call Update URL using HTTPS

    https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/16/t/4332
    https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/16/t/2630

    Sending Credentials / Password without encryption is no option for us at all.

    Thus it would be really helpful to have UpdateManagement working well with https.

  7. Show alert date in Sophos Enterprise Console

    In the table list containing "computers with alerts" there is no column showing the date and time of occurence. This should be shown directly in the table, not only in the host / alert details.

  8. active directory Group

    Active Directory synchronisation is very limited, particularly in large environments. Proper Active Directory integration should include the ability to filter policies to specific Active Directory groups and even Active Directory sites (for update servers). Take the following example, based on my environment, here is the OU structure:
    - Laptops
    ----- Finance
    ----- Agriculture
    ----- Education
    - Workstations
    ----- Finance
    ----- Agriculture
    ----- Education

    If we sync this with Sophos we lose the ability to give individual groups within each area different policies. So for example IT users in Agriculture need a different Device Control policy, so now we need an…

  11. Fix the dataflow IP on the Clients over the central console (Incident 5982343)

    Sophos Client will be connect over multiple network card and that is an problem because the firewall will always block this connection with autofilling the errorevents. the mrconf file is correct configured.
    The only way now is to configer 2 Registry key so the client will only communicate on the defined ip adresse.
    we need an solution, that we can over the central console configer this parameter and distribut it on all clients. Because manuali changes in a infrastructur over 300 Server isn't cool.
    For more Detai lsee Incident 5982343.
    Thanks

  12. Access Multiple SEC Installations from Additional Console

    It's great that we can install additional SEC Management Consoles, biut would it be possible to be able to connect to multiple SEC Installations from an additional console? For example, we have two SEC Consoles, one for UAT and one for Production. At the moment we can only connect to one or the other. Additional functionality to connect to multiple consoles would be appreciated and save us from logging in to multiple consoles. Thanks.

  13. Enterprise Console should Display more Information from Active Directory like Activated/Deactivated

    We currently have clients in the SEC which are disabled in AD, however, they show a policy error.
    Interesting for us would be to see clients which are active in the AD with no protection and which clients are deactivated in AD whether or not they used to be protected.

    Clients are displayed Grey, if there is no Client installed, not easy to see which state they have in the AD.

  14. Enterprise Console Focus and Dashboard Refesh

    Resolve Enterprise Console losing focus on window/frame after using Dashboard links. After launching the SEC and using any of the Dashboard links, attempting to use any frame thereafter loses focus when the Console refreshes (3 seconds). Adding groups, renaming, scrolling, find computer, etc. have to be clicked every time there after to regain control until the next refresh in 3 seconds. Focus is fine in any frame on launch until a link is used. This does not occur with the Dashboard closed.

  15. feature that will pop up password before closing sophos services

    feature that will pop up password before closing sophos services so that even if any desktop running under workgroup environment with administrative access, user will not be able to stop the sophos antivirus.

    This feature is badly needed in sophos which is missing

  16. Sophos Firewall monitoring mode for windows 8 and 10

    Instead of trying to reinstate the interactive mode firewall to create rule sets, enable monitoring back at the console. At least we can scan through and create a rule without having to add it manually. Thank you

  17. Active Directory Sync multiple install attempts

    Request for the option to set the number of install attempts for active directory sync.

    Similar to the sync interval if there was a value that could be set for number of retries and maybe the interval between attempts

  18. Sophos Enterprise Management Console client should connect to the server over HTTPS instead of HTTP

    PCI DSS 3.1 requires that all administrative access must be encrypted. By connecting to port 80 with unencrypted HTTP the following requirement is broken:
    "2.3 Encrypt all non-console administrative access using strong cryptography. Use technologies such as SSH, VPN, or TLS for web-based management and other non-console administrative access."

  19. Microsoft Exclusion Templates (e.g. SQL, Exchange, AD,...) 3rd Party Backup

    I would really like the option to enable exclusions based on Microsoft Recommendations. Once a year I manually go through the published recommended exclusions for Microsoft and other software (e.g. backup) and ensure I have those in my exclusions. It would be great (and save me a lot of time) if I had the option to check which exclusions I wanted.
    This seems to already be partially implemented in Sophos Cloud Server.

  20. Re-protect computers automatically

    Although with AD sync SEC can install endpoint protection automatically to the computers, it tries only once to protect the machines. Sometimes if there was a netowork error SEC should try the installtion again, moreover this feature can be very useful if the security software was uninstalled from a machine. When there are a plenty of machines on the network it is difficullt to check if the automated installation was fine and/or re-protect the machines manually.
    SEC should try to install the protection several time in a week or something like this...
