  3. A way to automatize email regarding bandwidth usage

    Some way to receive email regarding the usage of the bandwidth (basically this https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/123528 of every gateway, but by mail) because checking it directly into the XG every day is rather annoying.

  4. Subnet based, rule based and MAC based reports required.

    We are from a business center and we are using Sophos XG-330 Firewall at our site. We have different companies located in our business center and we separated all the companies with different subnets.
    Our concern is we have to analyze the traffic usage for each and every company(How much data was using by each company).
    For that we have to obtain the Traffic dashboard reports for a single subnet.
    Unfortunately, the feature was not available on the reports section, and we are allowed the different subnets from different rules so there is no feature like traffic dashboard reports based…

  7. Get more details on attack types

    Clicking on an attack type under the list of "Intrusion Attacks," for example should take you to a Sophos informational page that describes the attack so sysadmins can get more information on mitigation (just like the malware database) instead of just filtering on that attack type.

  10. Reports in one page after 200 entries

    It becomes extremely tiring to generate page reports one by one when the entries exceed 200.

    We suggest that when generating the report, all entries found are present in a single PDF and so there is no need to enter each one and generate those reports.

  11. Date Range Filter in Log Viewer

    In the "live log viewer", you should be able to specify a date range filter for the items you are searching for. This feature should gray out dates that don't have any data in them or should only go back as far as there is data available. For the time range specificed, the export feature should include all that data. This feature should work for both the live view and the export of that data.

  12. Reports like fastvue sophos reported

    Need more human readable reports that can be presented to executives to show users and readable blocked domain and categories side by side. The reports need to really make sense to none technical people. Reports need to be interactive and shareable with executives, and easy to understand with interactive drill down eg. user or group with a list of domain, categories, blocked or allowed, time spent etc....

  13. Generate separate reports by source Zone

    I'd like to be able to generate separate reports for each zone. We have several different zones, including some for guests that have very little security on them. When I send my boss an executive report I get a lot of questions on why certain applications or sites were allowed. I then have to go do a bunch of digging to figure out what zone that user/device was in at the time it happened to see what policy was being applied to them. It would be nice if all of the canned reports could be run for a specific zone.…

  14. View and report on VPN users' public IPs

    An easy way to view and report on an SSL VPN users public IP. Even better if it can do a who is to know where the address is located. Currently I had to access the advanced shell and search the sslvpn.log file. This is pretty inconvenient.

  15. Improve Netflow to support Solarwinds NTA / NBAR

    add better support of Netflow and possibly add NBAR. With all the power of the xg it fails on reporting to our monitoring service leaving us a blind spot in our infrastructue.

  17. File upload report - include non-standard uploaders

    Hello

    As such now there is no report available to show the file name uploaded to public cloud or web mail etc it only shows the total size uploaded. If we have the report along with file names will be added advantage.

  19. Auditing tool for Sophos firewalls

    It would be very beneficial to have an auditing tool (similar to Microsoft's MBSA) that will identify deficiencies and potential risks on the firewall. For example, weak ciphers and protocols enabled, weak passwords used etc.
    Basically, something that will provide an output similar to what Nipper provides, but focused on Sophos firewalls.

  20. Upload Reporting

    Ability to report on Uploaded Data.
    Currently some are reporting as 4 GB but this is not the case.
