  1. Rename subscription in Sophos Central Management

    At the the moment it isn't possible to manually rename a subscription. A typo is easily made. So would be handy if you could rename just like you can with name and address particulars.

  2. Allow removal of 'Global Security News' from Central dashboard

    The Central dashboard features a prominent news feed which cannot be removed. This can occasionally serve inappropriate content - at the time of writing mine is displaying an article about "nude photos of jessica alba" which is not appropriate, especially if one wishes to demonstrate the system.

    A paid for service should not contain mandatory publicity material of this nature, and customers should be able to customise their dashboards to remove unwanted features.

  3. Log output option (SAV.txt etc..)

    a) There was a request from a customer that they wanted to be able to choice the character code output for the following log files.
    *These log is output in "Little-endian text labelled with UTF-16 with a BOM", but they need "without BOM".

    1 TamperProtection.txt
    2 SAV.txt

    b) Customer wants to output contents of TamperProtection.txt and SAV.txt to event log and syslog.

  4. Append comments to endpoints in SEC

    It would be handy to be able append (dated) comments to an endpoint in SEC - a free text field for admins to explain certain actions. The endpoint would show a flag to indicate comments exist and perhaps have it colour coded to show indicate the last added comment (and this could be configurable for admins)

    For example, a disconnected computer could have a comment saying it was pending decommission, or under investigation etc.

    In addition retain these comments so a history could be viewed and make it easier to identify persistently problematic endpoints.

  5. Notification email with UserID/Machine name in subject

    Am an existing enterprise customer of Sophos Central.

    We feed all the email notifications from Sophos Central to a ticketing system. As the subject lines are same (types of events) these are getting appended to the existing tickets. So wanted to check if the Subject can also have the name of the User/Machine so that its unique in nature. Also this way it helps for quick glance instead of deep diving the details within the email especially when seeing as a notification on a mobile device (without opening the email app). This is a feature request and I am sure…

  6. Instant Unauthorized Device Alerts

    I would like to be instantly alerted when a user attempts to use an unauthorized device on the network such as a flash drive or mobile phone. Having to wait until the next day to see the attempt on a report is not providing us with a fast enough response time to eliminate a possible threat.

  7. How about extended DB query abilities to create custom reports.

    Provide the ability to generate custom reports by leveraging the query functions of the database. If you don't know what I'm talking about, look at McAfee EPO. Your design is very restrictive and from a Security compliance reporting perspective, really quite useless.

  8. import

    Allow per-policy import of exported SEC AV/HIPS scanning exclusions.

    This would ease transition of larger SEC customers to Central management who may have a prohibitive number of scanning exclusions for a manual transition from SEC to Central. (Yes, I know it's a good time to review them, but that's no excuse for ease of use)

  9. Update Now on Central Endpoint

    Why is the "Update Now" feature only available through selecting "About" (Bottom-Right-Corner), as opposed to being available on the front page.

    This isn’t in an obvious place, there should be an action menu at the top with the this in along with all the other missing actions that really should be on the endpoint.

  10. Sophos Central Admin - adjust the time that the Desktop Alert appears

    Create an option to adjust/increase the amount of time that the Desktop Alert appears (after updates that require a restart). Currently, with Sophos Endpoint Advanced with Intercept X, the Desktop Alert appears for ~5 seconds & then disappears forever.

  11. Cloud AD Sync import specific AD fields.

    When using the Cloud AD sync tool, we would like the ability to select the AD fields that will be imported and not just have all the fields imported.

  12. Intercept X Detect Only Option in Cloud Console

    For InterceptX, please add the feature in the console to have the option to have it "detect" only and not block anything so we can learn what it may detect (false positives). Per user would be preferred. This would be a good troubleshooting feature and implementation feature prior to putting it into full production. The Sophos Endpoint Protection Cloud has a similar feature for USB protection – it can detect and alert, but not block.

  13. Add a filter for protected users in sophos central

    It would be useful to add two new filters for protected users (users marked with green, orange or whatever) and the opposite (unprotected) in the People page, where manage users and groups.
    Now, there is no a quick way to show the protected users, i.e. users with protected devices. And the same for the opposite, unprotected users. these two filters would be very useful for controlling the deployment status.

  14. Clearing Cloud enpoint dtections count

    For Sophos cloud managed endpoints, if a malware or PUA for example has been found and cleaned, the local endpoint still shows the historic issue.
    In the cloud portal it can be cleared so no longer is shown. But on the endpoint it always is seen, which can be concerning for a user.

  15. Enable keyboard interaction for Web Console UI

    When managing content under 'Alerts', 'People' or 'Computers' we are unable to use keyboard inputs like "Shift + mouse click" or "Ctrl' + mouse click" for bulk/multiple selections. Also when making a selection, being able to use the 'Backspace' or 'Delete' key to remove entries would help.

  16. Tying device to people if using general install

    We used your Active Directory Sync to load all of our users into the portal. When using the general install on a device, it does not assign it to the user. We have to manually assign the device to the user which is a tedious process. We have an upcoming migration of 200 devices and we would like either a way to have the devices automatically assigned to users or a way to bulk move devices to the user.

  18. Fix Sophos Central Web Control Policy Processing Order

    Please fix Sophos Central's processing order for policies. I should be able to add "ALL DOMAIN USERS" to the bottom of the list and enable web filtering. Also I should be able to process policies from most restrictive at the bottom to least restrictive at the top. If I add the same user to two sequential policies it should enforce the least restrictive policy from the top down. This is not working and needs to be fixed immediately. Working with over 1k users is a burden and adding every staff member to a group while having to disable web filtering…

  19. Sophos HOME EP protection - Tamper Protection & scheduled scans.

    I currently run a Sophos UTM system (home installation) that includes EP licences. As I'm thinking of moving to the Sophos XG firewall I've installed Sophos HOME EP on two of my PC's.
    It would be really nice if this included;
    1) Tamper Protection (to prevent unauthorised product removal / tampering).
    2) Scheduled scans - it may do this already but I can't see where.

  20. Application Control - Dell Bloatware

    I am not sure for other PC manufacturers, but it would be nice to block/restrict applications such as:

    Dell Foundation Services
    Dell Backup and Recovery
    Dell Digital Delivery
    Dell Protected Workspace

    Thanks!
