  1. Sophos Mobile Control

    Upon the installation of Sophos Mobile, there is a point where you are asked if you want to turn ON location and the choice is either “Never” or “Always”. This should NOT be
    an option, when it comes to corporate own products, it should be “Always” by default on a Cell phone. Can your development please update the app or generate another installation with that setting enabled by default and grayed out.

  3. Improve Error Messages

    Reduce the amount of error "abstraction" in the SEC so as to provide useful information to aid diagnosis. Simply seeing errors such as "The installation failed" is completely useless, as it masks numerous other causes of issues that would otherwise be very easy to remediate. The actual error message that occurred, e.g. MSI error message should instead be passed upstream to the SEC.

  4. Wildcard for firewall launching process executables

    Certain Web Collaboration companies use a launching process that includes a random launching process executable that changes with every click on the link to enter the meeting. Adding the launching process to a firewall policy will not allow access as the next time the user tries to enter the meeting, the process has changed the random part of the launching process executable and it will still be blocked. Being able to add a hidden launching process with a wildcard would alleviate this issue.

  5. Auto scan on joining SEC

    Option to enable an auto full disk scan when a machine is first discovered in SEC. This would mean any machine which is being deployed via Group Policy would be automatic scanned when its first joined. Instead of waiting for the first scheduled scan time - it could be infected until this point.

  6. Shutdown after scheduled scan

    We would like to scan our computers after the working hours and would appreciate an option so that we could shutdown the computers after an av-scan is finished.

  8. More Granular Device Control

    Currently, we block all removable storage unless permitted by exemption. We would like to turn on device control for MTP/PTP but we cannot do so in the same policy unless we block it the same way as our removable storage. Please make Device Control more granular so that I can choose to block certain device types entirely, while still enabling me to detect but NOT block others (such as MTP/PTP). I want to be able to detect MTP/PTP for a few weeks to see what devices are being used before I block them.

  9. Would like the policy applied to the Parent OU be applied to the Child OU.

    Would like the policy applied to the Parent OU be applied to the Child OU.. It reduces management task and time drastically, if we need to change any policy on company level this feature will help a lot.

  10. Email Alert when Sophos can't clean up Virus

    Please implement more granular control over when Sophos emails for virus detection/cleanup. We would like to receive notifications for when Sophos is unable to clean up a virus on our fleet of devices (rather than being notified every time a virus is detected and/or cleaned up).

  11. Updateservers free configuration possible (at the moment only in standalone installers available)

    Please make the option available to configure the first and second updateserver free in SEC maged Endpoints.

    At the moment i cant enter the Sophos Udateservers as the primary server/primary Updatelocation.

    This would be Helpfull in case the headquarter has only limited upload bandwith and brachoffices get their updates from headquarter.

  12. ability to enter office 365 email server credentials in SEC

    ability to enter office 365 email server credentials in SEC

    currently you can only enter internally hosted server credentials, it would be beneficial to those using cloud based email solutions to have the option to put in those credentials in the policies pane within SEC.

    Dear Sophos Team,

    We have a customer who is requesting the following control through the Sophos Enterprise Console.

  16. Log Blocked Websites from Web Control in the sav.txt log

    Please log blocked websites that were blocked via web control to the sav.txt log. While this info is in the agent log file, it's not enduser friendly.

  17. Policy Compliance Differences Report

    Provide the ability to display what is different about a policy, rather than simply "differs from policy", which is useless to everyone. The compliance check is already being performed at the endpoint by the agent anyway, so such differences should be reported to the console and available in a report.

    It would be awesome if you can enhance your Computer Report (available in "Logs & Reports") to include the OS of the computer. You already show this information on the "View and manage your computers", but it would be very helpful to be able to export it to Excel so that we can use it to help plan OS upgrades for older devices.

  20. SEC data to Splunk

    As of today, Splunk can get the events from the console but not machine information especially which are out of date, error and non compliant. It would be better to send this data also for investigation purpose and also who use Splunk as single stop shop for monitoring purpose.
