  1. Allow file type blocks/allows to be managed by web site/domain instead of only by separate policies based on a list of users.

    For example: I need to allow my users to open PDF files generated by my hosted ERP systems URL but want to warn users before opening PDF files on general Internet URLs.

  5. Put a PAUSE / Stop button on the Central Endpoint scans!

    Put a PAUSE button on the Central Endpoint scans! When it is scanning it makes using the computer next to impossible with high resource usage. All applications are slow to respond, if at all. Sometimes need to use the computer during a scheduled scan--no choice now but to Cancel the scan. Unfortunately Sophos has not provided an option to rescue his work. All other antivirus and anti-malware software have PAUSE buttons. Why not Sophos? Sophos theme is security made simple. So pls do not complicate. Need a button pls.

  7. Sophos Endpoint - In Web Cotrol, split Proxies & Translators

    Sophos Endpoint
    Under Policies, in Web Cotrol, split Proxies & Translators in two different categories.

  8. Allow for deletion of files flagged for Manual removal from within the Sophos dashboard

    Allow for deletion of files flagged for Manual removal from within the Sophos dashboard.
    I have been told that there are various issues preventing this. If this is indeed completely not possible, I would like a detailed explanation as to why this is not possible.
    The issue we face is that we have users who work internationally who are not always available due to the nature of their work and the time zone in which they are working from. Asking a user to delete a file (mail attachment) that is stored within a Mac's mail app with in the OSX…

  13. Block single peripheral, whilst allowing all by default

    In Sophos Central, you can block all peripherals by default - and then have an allow list

    You can't do it the opposite way round, where you allow all devices and just have a block list.

    When trying to create a Peripheral Exemption to Block a device, with the default being Allow, it says that "Exemptions cannot be stricter than global settings."

    This mean that for a particular customer, we have to Allow around 300 USB devices just to block a singular device which a user brought in with malicious content on.

    It would be good to just block a…

  14. Excessive requests to reboot endpoint clients in the Sophos Enterprise Console.

    It seems that the higher up the ladder that the user is, the harder it is to get them to reboot. The disruption that closing their many, many, multi-tasking windows left open as project or task placards, makes it extremely difficult for them to pick up where they left off.

    Then a week after I had convinced all of my users to reboot for an update, I had another warning in the console to reboot all of the clients again.

    And now two weeks later, I have a new warning to reboot the endpoint users for Hitman.

    If we keep…

  15. Notification From Address

    The "From" address is not something you can configure for email alerts. By default it sends it as sav@<machinename>.<domain> and there is no way to change that. If you are sending through office 365 smtp, it will not allow you to send email alerts with a different from address as a basic security policy.

  18. New report type : USB allowed/blocked

    We are using the device control feature to block USB drives in most PCs and created sub-groups to allow certain PCs to have USB Access.
    Currently there is no reporting on how many computers have USB access allowed and how many have it denied, so kindly let us know about this feature

  19. Send an alert whenever an endpoint fails to register with Sophos Central.

    We have a number of AWS instances which are cloned to bring up new servers and we ran into a problem with duplicate endpoint IDs in the MCS configuration. When the servers tried to register with Sophos Central they would receive a 401 error back. I've found how to set up the images for the servers to avoid this (KB article 133268) but I think it would be helpful to get an alert when an event like this or any other issue that prevents the server from registering. Obviously if some network issue prevents the server from connecting to the…
