  3. block the read and write events on tokens (for digital certificates) by the "Device Control" Policy

    Feature Request Summary

    The Endpoint clients are using the tokens on machines, but the device control feature do not control this type of devices. We would like to block the middleware that allows the token to run.

  4. Being able to set different exclusions per plannified scanning

    Would be nice to be able to set exclusions on a per-planified scanning way. That way we can create a quick scan daily and a full scan on the weekends.

  5. exclusion variable

    Allow the exclusion of paths for scanning using system variables
    e.g. %localappdata%/Vendor/FolderForDatabase or %userprofile%/Vendor/FilesAreHere
    As these will change for each user on each machine but can be required for every machine if you use the same software.

  12. Ability to change scanning of network files on Mac OS X from the cloud

    On the client for Mac OS X you have the ability to turn off "files on network volumes". If you turn it off it "jumps" back on(May be a bug). It would be great if it was possible to control scanning of network volumes from the Cloud Console through a policy.

    I see it as a checkbox solution: "Do you want to scanning network volumes? Yes/No".

  14. UTM LiveConnect cloud integration

    I like the idea of the Sophos cloud, I manage a school district using the SEC with a UTM broker relationship to web filter endpoints when offnet for unified web filtering.

    Please add the ability to integrate cloud endpoints to this same type of filter synchronization and we will be sure to adopt the product.

  15. Implement automatic reporting in PM for Exchange

    Implement automatic reporting in PM for Exchange. In SEC there is already a possibility to send monthly reports. We also wish this for PM.

  16. Allow easy export of all endpoints from SEC to Excel

    1. Easy export of All Computers in console to a spreadsheet
    a. (we routinely do this and it takes 30 minutes to select all and copy to clipboard and paste 38,000 objects to a spreadsheet. If you forget your computer is copying the data to the clipboard and copy something else then you have to start all over. I installed an app called Ditto on my machine for this very reason to have multiple clipboards)
    2. Include the connected status in the data copy – a yes/no column for “Currently Connected?”
    3. A way to automate a dump of the…

    When writing to a device that uses the MTP/PTP/WPD drivers, the data control event gets logged to the local PC, but does not get submitted to the console. On later versions of Windows, the MTP driver seems to be used by default, so that even flash drives, which traditionally used the mass storage driver, are instead using MTP and data control events are only accessible from the local PC. Our only solution at this time is to block PCs with later versions of Windows from writing altogether, which will be unfeasible as these newer versions become more prevalent. When can…

  19. Smooth scrolling of endpoints in SEC

    Please somehow allow buffering or something that allows one to smoothly scroll through a long list of endpoints in the SEC. With 30K + endpoints, we see that Page Up / Page Down helps some, but if you click the scroll bar it will pause and then scroll too far forward or backward. It's really annoying if you're looking for a certain IP range or name, for example.

  20. Add ability to configure Message Relays to the SEC GUI

    Currently we have to find and edit mrinit.conf. It's not terrible, but a bit tedious to remember exactly where to do it and when to change MRParentAddress vs ParentRouterAddress, so it would be great if a sub-pane was added to the CID configuration window that lets you edit the values there at least. (Update Managers, Configure, Distribution tab, Update To list, click Configure. This window.)
    Bonus points if we can edit a particular endpoint in the Endpoints view and opt to make it a message relay, then the configure window above would list endpoints that have this designation.
