  2. restrict file upload by extension type

    XG Firewall should have an option for restricting file upload by extension type.
    this would really help in protecting the confidential data

  5. Block Notification Page Should Be Secure

    When a user should be seeing the block notification when they hit a web protection rule, instead they get a security warning from the browser. According to support "As XG is only rewriting the content of the webpage on the blocking and not rewriting the URL itself that is why you are seeing certificate error on the block page." This happens even though we have a valid public certificate set up on the XG.

    So if a user is trained correctly, they will not bypass the security warning and will never see the descriptive block notification. This should be corrected.

  6. Block/allow YouTube categories

    YouTube uses categories for the videos and it would be quite valuable to block/allow based on those.

    1 - Film & Animation
    2 - Autos & Vehicles
    10 - Music
    15 - Pets & Animals
    17 - Sports
    19 - Travel & Events
    20 - Gaming
    21 - Videoblogging
    22 - People & Blogs
    25 - News & Politics

  8. Apply different traffic shaping per Web Category

    Hello,

    the actual need is to apply different traffic shaping policy to the same Web category,
    each policy is to be applied to a specific group of people

    example: allowing streaming Category to all users (for normal users with a limitation of 128 KB/s but for managers the limit could be 512 KB/s)

    in order to do so 3 possible solutions

    1 ) give us the ability to clone Web categories
    2 ) give us the ability to create new categories of categories
    3 ) do not apply any traffic shaping to the Categories but apply it directly on the…

  9. let Web-mail category include all it's URL

    the problem started when I wanted to allow only webmail to a specific group of users

    most of webmail servers use generic URLs for their authentication.

    the problem is that those URLs are categorized as (search engine, dynamic DNS & ISP, etc...)

    it will be very helpful if you can add those specific URLs as part of the webmail category
    as you can't access the webmail without them.

    thanks in advance for your help and cooperation.

  10. Office 365 corporate domain

    Dear Team,

    As you updated in 17.5 MR3 for Google app restriction in which customer can allow thier custom domain, can we expect the same platform for Office365 apps. As of now there is no workaround to restrict personal domain login on office 365 except corporate domain.

    We hoping the same in you future firmware release.

    Regards,
    Aasif

  11. Allow Sandstorm to show every request to help debugging

    Sometimes I find Web sites that appear to be unresponsive unless I add an exception to the XG to skip Sandstorm scanning for them (or create a clone rule that has "Scan for zero-day threats with Sandstorm" disabled.) I spent over three hours with Sophos tech support trying to figure out why this was happening because nothing was showing in the sandboxd log, and it couldn't be set to debug log level to confirm if this is a bug or if Sandstorm is working as designed.

    So please add a debug log level option to sandboxd and allow it to…

  12. FTP file path should be included in the FW Manager Maintenance Config Backup

    In the Firewall Manager (17.x.x) there is no file path option in the FTP configuration download when backing up the Firewall Manager configurations. This option is however present for the Firewall Config backups. It should be available for both.

  13. WAF: SSO when path-specific-routing is used

    WAF: SSO when path-specific-routing is used
    When path specific routing is enabled, users must authenticate in EVERY path they use even when paths use the SAME authentication policy. An example: a user is using Outlook web access in path /owa/ (1st authentication) adn goes to OWA Options in path /ecp/ (2nd authentication), goes to some internal document (3rd authentication) and so on.

  14. Enable Google Safe Search without the need of installing a certificate on each client device

    Enable safe search for HTTPS connection without installing a certificate on a client device. It is impossible for a school using Bring Your Own Device to force a certificate installation to enable Safe Search. Such settings have to be performed on Cyberoam only. If a student or staff member decides to bring another device without warning, Safe Search would not be enabled unless the certificate is installed manually. Such an option is not feasible.

  16. Allow web filtering exceptions to use the referrer field as well as the URL field

    Found this idea suggestion in the UTM but this would be very useful in the XG as well.

    https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/17359-sg-utm/suggestions/18539521-allow-web-filtering-exceptions-to-use-the-referrer

    This would allow you to create an exception for lets say a page that is not working due to ads on the site but with the referrer it would allow the site to be used.

  18. Enhancements to Web Policy Overrides

    The "Web Policy override" is a welcome addition to Sophos XG, however I believe that there needs to be more options to enable admins to effectively control when these overrides are active and how they are implemented.

    I think Admins should be able to remove the "Allowed website categories" option so staff can only enable specific domains.

    Instead of the "Restricted to time periods" option i would prefer it if we could allow staff to select a start date and time, and pick from an admin controlled list of durations for the override (e.g. staff could set an override to…

  20. Better integration of eDirectory

    At present, eDirectory integration is very weak to the point of being unusable. Why?

    - Group membership cannot be imported from eDirectory but has to be manually assigned for EACH and EVERY user who is not supposed to be a member of the default group. The fact that this is not implemented is so surprising that it took even Sophos support a long time of treating this as an incident until they finally told me "It's not a bug,feature is simply not implemented." (case #7928200; case opened on 19.02.2018;case closed on 15.05.2018).

    - The manually assigned group membership does not…
