  1. Sophos Quick Scan

    Currently Sophos has no option to perform a quick scan on the affected endpoint. A quick scan can quickly scan the mostly affected areas of an operating system (for eg. memory, registry, currently running processes, startup entries etc.) in and under 10-15 minutes.

    This Quick Scan could largely benefit users who want to occasionaly run a scan but don't as the only option they are left with is a full system scan.

      • The Interactive Services Detection service terminated with the following error: %%1

        Server 2012 Windows event error:

        The Interactive Services Detection service terminated with the following error: %%1

        Possible to change the way our programs function with Server 2012 and future versions to no longer cause this error

        • Native support for Syslog

          The Sophos Enterprise Console needs the native capability to generate Syslog messages in response to system events and security incidents.

          Many IT organizations rely on Syslog in order to transmit event messages to other applications for further processing such as: Centralized log storage, Forensic log analysis, IT help desk, Incident Response, Audit, etc.

          When integrating Syslog events with a SIEM or Log Management tool, the tool receiving the events usually needs to normalize the data into their expected format. When creating a Syslog capability, it would be helpful if all of the events IDs were documented so that customers could…

            • Application Control - Selectively detect/block by category

              Allow to select by category, instead of globally, to choose "block" or "detect" applications. From Customer:

              Today we have the Application Control Policy set to “Detect but allow to run” which has allowed us to see what applications are detected which we could be blocking. We very quickly want to turn this feature on to start blocking application types, specifically the “File Sharing Application” type to block things like BitTorrent and other P2P software. The problem is that when we move this category to block we have to remove the “Detect but allow to run” option for all categories. Now…

                  • How the existing linux client can redirect to newly fresh installed Enterprise console 5.2.2

                    Client was asking, there should be a way for existing Linux endpoint should redirect to newly fresh installed Enterprise console 5.2.2. As it could be happened if client don't have a backup of Enterprise console and if they need to install a fresh installation, then existing Linux endpoint are not able to communicate with the newly console as due to Old SSL certificate.

                                  While investigating malware issues, it is very often necessary to either visit a computer in person, or if it is remote, to connect to it via the Remote Desktop Protocol.

                                  It would be nice to be able to right click on a computer within SEC and have an option to connect to the client via RDP. SEC could launch the Microsoft Terminal Server Client (mstsc.exe) and pass the IP address/hostname of the client as a parameter.

                                  This would allow the administrator to connect to the client without having to 'leave' the SEC console and launch the RDP connection manually. The…

                                    • Add name of namedscan to reporting for the "Threat detected" email

                                      Add name of namedscan to reporting for the "Threat detected" email.

                                      It currently says:

                                      "A threat was detected during an on-demand scan. Details follow:" ...

                                      this suggestion is to add the name of the scan to the email. The reason is to allow the admin to respond to the alert my referring to the specific scan on the host with the discovered issue.

                                      in addition I would suggest the option for a scan run an no issues found but "X files scanned" and "Y errors occured" during the scan " $$ named scan name".

                                        In our infrastructure Exchange-Admins and Domain-Admins are seperate groups. At the moment, when a Exchange-Admin installs or upgrades Puremessage for Exchange he needs Domain-Admin Credentials to do this. It would be great, if it would work with only Exchange-Admin rights. I think, this is a problem for every bigger Exchange-Infrastructure.
