  2. Web Category upload /download controls

    I have a "Blocked URLs" Category on 5 firewalls, and I need to update all 5 firewalls whenever I need to block a new **** / torrent / gambling URL.
    Please provide a central method to update a user created Category. The update method should also allow deletion of URLs.

    The current "upload from text file" method is pretty smart, it appends only the URLs that are different than what is already in the Category so as to avoid duplications. But the upload method does NOT allow deletions.

    Consider allowing deletions by removing URLs that are in the Category but…

  4. happy eyeballs for Web protection

    As of right now, the Sophos XGs web Protection feature does not implement happy eyeballs which renders it unusable for IPv6 Endpoints - the only way to "fix" this is to simply force all http(s) traffic to use ipv4 instead.

    It would be nice to see real dual stack support by implementing Happy Eyeballs.

  6. OTP MFA on inbound port forwarding rule

    The world is asking for more than passwords for OWA and RDS Gateway inbound. Please consider adding OTP so the Sophos Authenticator can support the second factor. So, the RDP Connection Client will https to the RDS Gateway that is behind the XG rule. Something will pop up and ask for a "User Portal"-like authentication before the RDP client hits the gateway. Similarly, the same will happen before the browser hits the OWA page.

  9. Allow only specific file types.

    There is no easy way to block all File Types and allow only specific.

    The only way to achieve requirement is to create Block list Manually using Default Templates and removing those File Types/MIME which needs to be allowed. Instead of Blocking Default File Type category, needs to select the custom categories to Block File types.

  14. ALLOW A USER TO BELONG TO MORE THAN ONE AD GROUP

    ALLOW A USER TO BELONG TO MORE THAN ONE AD GROUP

    It would be very convenient to assign permissions to Active Directory (AD) groups so that a user can simultaneously belong to several groups (eg, Shopping, Social_Sales, Travel, etc.). Currently only one AD group can belong.

  16. File extensions mime headers

    At the moment files who match File extensions, or MIME headers are be blocked, or broke the downloaded file. It would be nice if there is a option, that only blockes files if extension and MIME Headers match.

  18. Bypass Blocked Executable Download with Credentials

    I love that the system can block users from downloading executable files. But this same feature hampers the IT department in their work, actually creates more work because for every software title/vendor that we must download, we have to create an exception for their sites, and that can add up over time.

    I would love to see something on the block page provide the opportunity for an IT/firewall admin to enter credentials in order to continue through the block screen in order to download that executable. I may not always want a global exception, just the ability to the IT…
