  1. Add automatic update after install of the "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages

    Add automatic update after install of the "Sophos Deployment Packager" installer packages. The installer design presently only installs Sophos and does not do an update at the end of the install. This forces new installers being built to stay current when used as an in place install. If there was an automatic update after install the file differences would come down smoothly over the network connection.

    In the runtime section you have Java, Flash and Silverlight listed however in its entirety. Is it possible to expand the list to the versions of these products as you do with Adobe Reader. We would like to block specific versions of Java, Flash and Silverlight?

  4. SAV for Linux: stop checking "/tmp/rectm*.* by default

    Many Linux use recoll as a search database/indexing tool.
    Problem: when recoll (updates its database there are many tmp files generated.
    As they are somewhat packed, it seems that many of these files generate false virus alerts
    (as packed content contains "signatures").
    Please think about setting "/tmp/rectm*" onto an ignoreliste by default.
    I couldn't find out how to configure the Sophos deamon so I simply set recoll indexing on hold
    when the first "virus found" message arives as workaround, but I'd appreciate a hint.

  6. Backup and Restore the SUM configuration

    On the behalf of a Platinum customer

    The administrator has created a single instance of SUM on separate server and would now like the ability to backup the SUM configuration (a use example could be if the OS is about to be upgraded). Currently the only option for the admin is to backup and restore the complete database along with creating a brand new installation from the SUM share. As Sophos supports the creating of new installation of SUM they should also support a method to only backup the SUM configuration, as the database may reside on a different box.

  8. Being able to set different exclusions per plannified scanning

    Would be nice to be able to set exclusions on a per-planified scanning way. That way we can create a quick scan daily and a full scan on the weekends.

  12. Allow easy export of all endpoints from SEC to Excel


    1. Easy export of All Computers in console to a spreadsheet
      a. (we routinely do this and it takes 30 minutes to select all and copy to clipboard and paste 38,000 objects to a spreadsheet. If you forget your computer is copying the data to the clipboard and copy something else then you have to start all over. I installed an app called Ditto on my machine for this very reason to have multiple clipboards)

    2. Include the connected status in the data copy – a yes/no column for “Currently Connected?”

    When writing to a device that uses the MTP/PTP/WPD drivers, the data control event gets logged to the local PC, but does not get submitted to the console. On later versions of Windows, the MTP driver seems to be used by default, so that even flash drives, which traditionally used the mass storage driver, are instead using MTP and data control events are only accessible from the local PC. Our only solution at this time is to block PCs with later versions of Windows from writing altogether, which will be unfeasible as these newer versions become more prevalent. When can…

  14. Smooth scrolling of endpoints in SEC

    Please somehow allow buffering or something that allows one to smoothly scroll through a long list of endpoints in the SEC. With 30K + endpoints, we see that Page Up / Page Down helps some, but if you click the scroll bar it will pause and then scroll too far forward or backward. It's really annoying if you're looking for a certain IP range or name, for example.

  15. Launching the console as a user who inherits membership of the Sophos Full Administrators group via nested groups

    There is a known issue where launching the console as a user who inherits membership of the Sophos Full Administrators group via nested groups.
    It would be great if this was resolved and nested groups work. This is a compliance breakdown.

  16. Device Control on Servers

    Sophos Cloud use to have device control on Windows servers. Please add this back in, it's important to reduce the threat surface area of systems, especially servers.

    Glue in the USB ports only goes so far!

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
