          • IPS logging of Pen test or port scanning is not available

            IPS logging of Pen test or port scanning is not available on Cyberrom Firewall.
            I think this is the most important feature which should consider by SOPHOS.As of there is no protection against an attacker.
            Please get these features updated as soon as possible..

            • Create an IP Scan function in diagnostics

              I think this would be an exceptionally useful tool for admins to have rather than having to log on to a server and use third party tools.

              Scan a zone / subnet and report back:
              IP Address
              Host name
              User
              MAC Address
              Open ports

                  • SYN/UDP dos reports

                    If any user get internal / external attack on SYN or UDP protocol then it should be saved on the firewall reports, for reference to which user or external user is generated the attack, like IP address, country /graphical GUI location

                    • Firmware Updates in CFM

                      There is an option in Central Firewall Managed to check for and, presumably, install firmware updates. However, I have yet to see any available updates show in CFM. Instead I have to log into each device to check for and install updates. This is unacceptable for MSPs.

                      • Asymmetric routing for directly connected network.

                        Customer A:

                        WAN-A1: 1.1.1.1 /24
                        WAN-A2: 2.2.2.2 /24

                        Customer B:

                        WAN-B1: 1.1.1.5 / 24

                        Issue: WAN-B1 : 1.1.1.5 connects to WAN-A2 2.2.2.2 , and this is not working.

                        If Customer B connects from WAN-B1 to a virtual host on WAN-A2 (for instance a TCP connection to a webmail) ,
                        the reply TCP packet came IN-bound on port WAN-A2 and goes out on port WAN-A1 with the IP of
                        WAN-A2!! This is creating asymmetric routing. Which is not supported in CROS/SFOS.

                        It seems flaw in L2 routing design for multi homed customer causing DDOS attack on the second WAN uplink gateway." …

                        • Private VLAN

                          Currently the Sophos UTM / XG do not support Private VLAN's. This is a major security feature that is being used more and more often especially in virtualised environments with VDI's, DMZ's or even sensitive / untrusted local equipment at an office campus.

                          With the addition of private vlan you can prevent these devices from communication with eachother. However Sophos does need to support this feature. Currently the virtual variants do support it thanks to VMware but the hardware variants do not.

                          • Show full DUID in IPv6 Lease Table

                            I would find it useful if under Configure -> Network -> DHCP -> IPv6 Lease, the table showed the complete DUID for the clients. The easiest method that I can find to create a static IPv6 address for a server or other client is to find it in this list then create the static IPv6. At the moment, only part of the DUID is shown making it impossible to copy and paste into the static lease table. To insert it into the static lease table I need to copy it out manually.

                            • WAN inbound Failover / block inbound traffic on Backup WAN

                              Currently, inbound traffic is allowed on all WAN lines, the Active and even on the Backup WAN lines! This is unacceptable.
                              Inbound traffic should only be allowed on the ACTIVE line, and be allowed on the Backup line ONLY when a failover occurs.
                              The XG is advertising a Failover function that is in effet allowing Load Balancing. This is a problem for more costly backup lines that are as their name clearly says "Backup" lines, not to be used unless a Failover occurs. Unless a WAN link is Active, it should not be allowing traffic thru it!!
                              This to me…

                              • Allow XG to activate SPX Encryption without Data Control on - with the use of header value of x-sophos-spx-encryption yes

                                I was informed by support today that the SPX encryption module only works with data control. In the SG series, one was able to set Exchange or an email client to modify the header to insert x-sophos-spx-encryption:yes - and the SPX encryption would activate on the firewall before leaving. It appears this is not the case in the XG series and cannot be done.

                                • Ignore L2 routing for WAN interfaces - async routing

                                  Ignore L2 routing for WAN interfaces.
                                  if not it casues DDOS attacks for uplink WAN
                                  if not it causes async routing issues for all remote inbound connections

                                  (Other vendors do this to prevent Async routing. Specially in Belgium where major ISP leases static IP's with /19 subnet. )

                                  • Add X-Forwarded-For / CF-Connecting-IP support

                                    Many of the sites nowadays are behind CloudFlare. It would be great to have an option to inspect and see the real IP address in the WAF logs / Reports.

                                    It will be like 1 raw entry in the Apache configs!

                                    • Make Sophos XG scan archives in mail attachments for forbidden file extensions

                                      In both - MTA and Legacy mode, currently there is no way to block file extensions which are inside archives. Example - php file in .zip as attachment.
                                      Tested and confirmed by the support guys - Ticket #7781559.
                                      Please add this functionality, because what we mostly see is malicious script droppers (.js mostly). This is not only my opinion, but as your partner we received multiple negative feedbacks regarding this.

                                      • GDPR

                                        The GDPR Act will soon be in force. This requires a "total zero" telemetry data transfer switch. If this is set to active, do not send any firewall information on the data traffic. Do not send anything else. If it does not, then it will not be in the law.

                                        • Sandstorm / IPS scanning

                                          Sandstorm will only scan HTTP on TCP 80 and HTTPS on TCP 433. The IPS/IPD system within the XG system should be proactive and understand when a HTTP/HTTPS transactions are happening and allow Sandstorm scanning.

                                          We have many web servers within our DMZ and they can use non-standard TCP ports for their connections. This means a large percentage of files are not being processed by Sandstorm.
