  3. create

    On the Sophos Endpoint Protection, there should be a way to customize the progress indicator bar. Currently, when a scan is initiated and running, all you see from a end user's desktop is the green progress indicator bar.

  4. DLP: Needs macOS support

    It is 2020 and macOS is a common workplace device. We require the ability to prevent file transfers containing PHI and other protective information, as well as create custom rules. This needs to be revisited

  5. Skip remote scan when alread scanned locally (during copy from local to remote)

    A new exclusion-option "On remote location, when already scanned locally” would be great.

    We need to exclude those items for software developers with a low bandwidth-connection (VPN with ~50 MBit/s).

    When they publish a new version, they compile the software locally and copy it to a remote-location (Network-Share). All Elements to be copied to the remote location have already been scanned locally, before.

    When they copy the package, SAV scans them again on the remote-location. This takes about 10 Minutes per file (with 5 MiB filesize). It takes around 45 Minutes to publish the whole package for our main-application. When…

  6. Ability to select resolution to detections

    On Sophos Endpoint policies, having the ability to decide on "Action to take"on all detection/issues.
    When building software packages for deployment we receive numerous false positives.
    Having the ability to respond to a detection to say "This is a safe file" would save many hours wasted adding exceptions and repackaging again. This is already an option for "Low reputation files downloaded".

  7. Add a way to filter out the device type/device category in reports (laptop, workstation, server)

    I need to report on the number of workstation, laptops and servers using Sophos licences which I can't as I can't separate laptops from fixed computers.
    I would also need to run a report and ensure that all laptops have the device encryption enabled (where it is less critical if not enabled on a fixed workstation) and this is also something which you can't do because you can't find out about specific device category like 'laptop'.

  8. URL logging in DLP

    Can the destination URL that the user is uploading files to please be included on the DLP logging. This would help us in getting better information for users uploading files to websites.

    Currently we have to use a 3rd party tool to check the URLs.

  10. Deception Technology Integration

    A Sophos competitor has recently released a new feature into their Security platform. They are calling it "Advanced Deception Technology". It essentially deploys a variety of different honeypots throughout your network and automatically reports on them when any of them are accessed. There are MANY companies that don't have the know-how, time, or money to implement these sorts of proactive measures. I would love to see this as an additional feature that could be integrated into the Sophos Central platform as part of the EDR solution.

  11. You should not be limiting the size of messages, that is the email server's job.

    I have two clients that are upset with this restriction. As am I. it is not Sophos' job to control the size of messages. Microsoft 365 has an upper limit of 150 MB, your services should be matching that, or remove the limit altogether.

  12. custom hash list feeds


    1. support automation of adding block hashes into endpoint protection blocked items via custom feeds


    2. alerts on the dashboard for detection of files that are in the blocked item list. currently there is no alerts on the dashboard. if one does not have a SIEM to do monitoring, then one must manually check each endpoint in the central to see who has detection due to the blocked item list.


    3. option to automatically create case based on item 2.

  14. Block Windows 10 Apps

    the current Mail App (Windows 1909) has no exe left to start So far it was blocked by SAC. Not anymore. So users can start it.
    ICh used Sophos to block the unnecessary Windows 10 apps. This no longer works.
    Sophos support asks for an exe - I (and no one else) can't provide it.
    Sophos has to adapt / develop here and continue to block these apps as well.

  15. Sophos installation with Saltstack

    We use Sophos on about 100 linux systems for protection. For installation we use a script and that is working well. Because we want to automate the installation of the linux systems further we use Saltstack. By installing Sophos-agent with Saltstack we get errors(service request 03218428). So can Sophos make an installation that works under saltstack.

  17. MD5

    Many threat intelligence services offer MD5 or SHA hashes of known malicious files. It would be excellent if Sophos endpoint could report up to Sophos Central on file hashes that were either downloaded from the internet or received by email. Then a SIEM or similar tool could alert if a known malicious hash was detected.

  19. "A computer is no longer sending security heartbeats" Alerts

    95% or more of the time we get the "A computer is no longer sending security heartbeats to Sophos Firewall" alert email messages, the heartbeat issues clears itself up in 5-10 minutes. Usually this is due to the computer restarting or InterceptX is updating. This generates way to much work to review all those alerts, check Sophos Central to be sure it's back online and then file away or delete the alert. I would love to have a way to set how many minutes the computer goes without sending the heartbeat before that alert is sent.

    Yes, some will say…

  20. Clear/resolve alerts from endpoint client

    This function is helfull to remove quicly solved alert notification by accesing in admin panel. In some cases, always having to login to the console to reset the alerts is very time consuming.
