  2. 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?

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

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    Currently there is no alert / status change for an endpoint who's definition files are out of date, meaning, let's say you have a fully protected client, but, sophos update (not engine as that alerts if it fails) but rather JUST the definitions fail to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

  11. Sophos Enterprise Console for Macs

    I have a Mac as my work computer but cannot use it to run the SEC like I used to with my Windows device. Would be cool if I could use my work computer to do this, regardless of its flavor. Thanks!

  12. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Create option to disable updating notifications for Sophos endpoint

    There is an option to disable notification messages for the endpoint for Anti-Virus policies but there is no option to disable notifications for product and definition updating policies for the endpoint. We would like to be able to disable the update notifications for the end user.

  19. Control over Sophos client engine updates deployment

    At this point timing of the new Sophos client engine version deployment and all endpoints subsequently requiring reboot is unpredictable.
    Need to be able to schedule new version deployment on particular date and time, to avoid tampering with windows updates deployment / other scheduled maintenance tasks in the environment.

  20. Sophos Update Manager (SUM) Reset

    SUM failing to update even after resetting it or repairing it.

    The metadata in the database become corrupt, resulting in a constant cycle of incorrect package information.

    Error Version information for product “windows endpoint security and control” was not gathered by dispatcher “dispatcherPrograms-2018-02-15T14-28-01-1”, as the last synchronisation of that product failed

    Error decode operation failed with an unexpected error. Details: failed to read customer file content

    What helped was information from an internal KBA: 111822

    This was to reset the MetaData within the database. After this, the SUM then successfully updated.

    Can we look at creating a method of checking…
