  1. Create Preconfig able to set all preferences of SAV

    It would be very helpful to be able to set all preferences in SAV for Mac with Terminal to create a preconfigured installer. The options for the update location and the onaccess scan are not enough.

    • 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.

      • Managed Group automated assignments of endpoints within Console

        The assignments of endpoints to managed groups is currently only down during install. other vendors in this space have automated ways to move endpoints into managed groups within their consoles. If Sophos adds this option it will reduce the number of installers customers have to deploy within their environments. The automated group assignments used by other vendors is by host name starts with, OS ot tag assigned to group. Having customers have to create separate installers or manually move endpoints from the unassigned group is very outdated.

        • Include total # of licensed endpoints in SEC dashboard

          SEC does not list total # of licenses related to a customers instance. Instead, support has recommended we go by "managed endpoints." When purchasing additional licenses or installing to new machines, it would be nice to see exactly how many agents we have left to push out.

          • Sophos cloud Linux workstation AV endpoint

            Please provide a Linux workstation license for Sophos Cloud. For users that have linux desktops, we don't have an option if we want to use Sophos Cloud for our management service.

              • Exclude Process longer that 14 Characters

                Sophos Product Information

                Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Security and Control
                Version in Production: 10.3

                Feature Request Summary

                How will this new feature address your business requirements?:

                We have a requirement to provide process level exclusion on the antivirus, the processes are longer than 14 characters so we are currently not able to provide this with Sophos, and have the option of disabling on access scanning only this leaves the system in a vulnerable state.

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

                1 - It is critical that we have this ability

                  • No info for sophosav user/group in the manual

                    In the SAV for Linux and UNIX setup guide does not write
                    sophosav user and group info.

                    Some customer complained about there is no info what will SAV installer changes.

                    In the manual's uninstall section it writes
                    =====
                    The uninstall script deletes:
                    ■ All entries from the system startup that are associated with Sophos Anti-Virus.
                    7
                    ■ The Sophos Anti-Virus man pages in /usr/share/man.
                    ■ The savscan on-demand scanner in /usr/local/bin.
                    ■ /opt/sophos-av and its contents
                    =====

                    Is it possible to write a info install.sh does those things and create a sophoav user and group?

                                Feature Request Summary

                                We would like the Sophos clients to close any existing connections once the activity is completed (i.e updating av defs, policies etc as established by the
                                server)

                                AND THEN the Sophos Client establishes a new connection to a specific port on the Sophos Server if it needs to communicate with a new session.

                                Alternatively the Sophos Client could have a keep-alive process that keeps the connection between the Client and Server valid, so that if can re-use that connection if needed.

                                How will this new feature…

                                    • how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite guide

                                      There is no clear technical information on your website on how to re-license a product in the Sophos suite.
                                      Web Appliance has a different process to the email appliance, help about does not show same info on the 2 Linux appliances.
                                      The Mobile Appliance has a different process to re-license than the Linux appliances. The Enterprise console has a 4th separate process which is different to all the appliances. Very hard to get clear information on how to re-license. Sophos tech support tell you to pay your supplier to do it for you. Not hard to do once you figure…

                                      • Application Control - Selective detect/block aplications on the same policy

                                        On the Application Control, allow, on the same policy, to block some applications while keeping others as detect only.

                                          We discussed this when developing the application control policy for Sophos Central managed endpoints. At the time we decided to maintain feature parity with on-premise managed endpoints (SEC). While this capability is not available it is on our short list but does not appear on any planned delivery timelines at the moment. We evaluate and prioritize enhancements for the product multiple times per year.
