  3. Sophos Deployment Packager - Allow Secondary Location on "Full, Managed Packages"

    When you choose to make a "Full, Managed" package using the deployment Packager tool. The options for primary and secondary after grayed out as it assumes that the machine will soon get its policy for updating from the management server. I suggest we allow for a secondary location to be set for machines that will not be communicating with the management server for some months but will have sporadic internet access.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Ability to scan and block google chrome extensions

    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

  11. 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?

  14. Can we have a dialog box when SAV detects a threat rather than just a quick popup and an exclamation mark?

    Customer would like to see something like “YOU HAVE A VIRUS!!! But it’s OK, because I deleted it”

    I have seen your article on your knowledgebase: https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/knowledgebase/113287.aspx I was wondering, is it possible to give the ability to switch the Sophos web control balloons off?

  17. Port Behaviour Change

    Sophos Product Information

    Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Protection

    Version in Production:10.3

    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…

  20. 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…
