  1. SSL VPN profile that is generic so any user that is in the security group can log in using the one downloaded VPN configuration.

    Currently, if a company has a pool of laptops to be handed out by users that have the SSL VPN client installed, they cannot log into the SSL VPN client without first logging into the user portal and then downloading the configuration for their particular user. It would be nice to have one VPN client install and if the user is a member of a particular security group, be able to log in using the installed VPN client software.

    • User portal czech language support

      In UTM9 there is Czech language for user portal. Is has been dropped in XG, therefore many customers refuses to migrate. Please get it also for XG.

      • Browsertitle with hostname

        please let us select the hostname as on utm with hostname, ip and user. it is annoying having 2 or 3 tabs called "sophos" if you change settings on multiple XG's

        • SMTP Policy - File Protection - Better way to whitelist files (by type/extension)

          A better interface for selecting which file types/extensions you wish to allow/block.

          The SEA is better featured in this respect allowing you to select by extension rather than "mime type" (which is very hard to do effectively as some extensions share mime headers).

          If not then more mime types should be included by default!

            • Assigning same subnet ip address in different zones

              Assigning same subnet ip address in different interface in seperate zones. This will help in endusers to select different IP Address: Example: 172.16.16.1/24 -> Proxy 1 Zone & 172.16.16.2/24 -> Proxy 2 Zone. and apply different firewall policy based on the zones they try to access the services from. (Example : In explicit proxy mode)

              Particulary helpful since XG doesnt have Virtual Contexts/Virtual firewall with the same hardware.

              • Add signature exclusions to IPS Policies

                Currently, you can only filter to select an entire set or subset of IPS signatures within an IPS Policy.

                There is no way to exclude a signature from an IPS Policy.

                We would much rather include all signatures that fall under a certain category (e.g. Web Applications) as one policy entry, and then add a "whitelist" exclusion of false-positives as a secondary policy entry.

                • IPS Signature Age

                  Grant us the ability to alter the "age-out" option for IPS rules, similar to what existed in the UTM. Given the signature count differences between the XG750 vs lower models, we see this age -out happening behind the scenes. We would like this under or control.

                  • Blocked not only the attachment but also the email

                    Currently when email file type attachment was blocked, the recipient still received the email with filtered added in the subject.
                    Why can’t the XG just blocked the email and notify with a failure notice saying banned file type detected. Serve no purpose that the recipient received the email without the attachment and receiver still need to notify the sender.....

                        • make firewall rule interface user friendly (Cyberoam like)

                          Please take a look at the development of the firewall rules interface.
                          This is far from being great and user friendly.

                          Do like the cyberoam interface, automatically group rules by source zone & destination zone. I know you've created "groups" to do this but this is not sufficient at all.. (Already moving rules over an hour to different groups, firewall with 100 rules and 8 zones)

                          Despite above, also make your groups user friendly.
                          Bulk actions to move rules to group, the "add to group list" is not ordered A-Z

                          But I'm really hoping you take a look at the…

                            • loopback interface for routing

                              it will be good to add loopback address for routing protocol like ospf and bgp expecially that can be created as connection between peers. i think is not difficoult to achieve.

                              • AD integration - Substantial Improvements desired/required

                                XG Integration with Windows AD is extremely weak.
                                1. XG needs to support users being a member of multiple Groups

                                2. XG needs to add users to multiple Groups during AD Sync/import. Currently it (a bit weirdly) choose the alphabetically first Group in those being imported to add the user to.

                                3. XG needs to have an ability to refresh the group membership, where appropriate taking
                                users OUT of groups if they are no longer present.

                                4, XG needs a means of automatically (scheduled?) re-syncing the AD Users/Security Groups/Group membership; I think the Sophos Central integration is pretty much what…

                                    • Add support for HIP (Host Identity Protocol)

                                      Add the HIP protocol to your product and you will be the first in the Enterprise sector to do so. Currently there is but one player in this revolution in network security, Tempered Networks. While their product are aimed at the critical infrastructure vertical (as was Cyberoam at one point) the technology could be easily applied to almost any network.

                                        • Add DHCP Boot Options

                                          I need to serve the DHCP options 66 (TFTP server name) and 76 (Bootfile name) for PXE boot. Is it possible to add these options like the DNS and WINS options?
