  1. Customisable iView Report PDF

    The iView is a very good analyzing tool but it's missing a key feature: Customisable Report Sheets. The Reports are wa too big, there is too much blank space and it would be nice to change the logo. Just give us a way to edit the html/xml/php code.

      • Device Groups in SFM -> Firmware Update

        I'd like to create custom groups and add / remove firewalls by myself. This is already possible. But why am I NOT allowed to use this group in the "Firmware Update" section?

        • Notified abount Access Point UP / Down

          it could be nice to receive notification about the status of AP connected to XG (Wireless Protection), actually the state is displayed on the dashboard (numer of total AP / number of AP connected) but it is not a warning, there is no log in the Wireless Security section related to an AP that goes offline. Also in SFM there is no specific Alert/Notification about AP state.

          • QOS per interface or Gateway

            Can we please get some QOS functionality on a per interface or per Gateway option,

            We have a lot of customers that have multiple links with different speeds, it is currently difficult to manage this with the current QOS functionality.

            I see a lot of other feature requests for QOS but none that cover this topic.

            Thank you

              • SSL VPN users must have the timing access for LAN resource

                Almost every Firewallsystem offers an option to enable VPN Access for an user just for some time. In Example : klick on the user -> Enable VPN Access for next 8h.

                So VPN Access ends with 8h of use and there is no need to deactivate it manually.

                Please provide this function.

                  XG wireless lack a way to identify devices connected to the APs as well as not able to see any kind of live usage data. In SG it's possible to see how a wide variety of wireless information and live data. This really is something required in Sophos XG

                          • Allow subnet/ip directed broadcasts for Wake on LAN (WoL)

                            Allow forwarding of udp-broadcasts to other subnets used by deployment-software like enteo or baramundi to wake up clients on remote sites.
                            That feature is for example available with Cisco firewalls over the ip-helper service.

                              • Add a hit counter to firewall rules alongside the traffic counter

                                Add a counter for the number of times a firewall gets hit along with the amount of traffic on the rule.
                                SG firewall had this and it made troubleshooting and monitoring easier. This would be a good addition, even if there was a "firewall rules" report that showed the number of hits per rule. All other reports prefer hits to bandwidth by default, but firewall page only shows bandwidth.

                                  • Support for nested Active Directory groups

                                    I'm very happy with the fact that there is an Active Directory integration, but the lack of support for nested AD groups cripples the potential. We've set up an authorization matrix in our AD where users are added to a group signifying a user role and that primary group is added to secondary groups that actually grant permissions to resources like a mailbox or a file share. This could very easily be extended with groups that signify network access, but that would require the XG firewall to resolve nested group membership, so that it could check whether an AD user…

                                      • Closes the ideas.sophos.com platform

                                        The idea of ideas.sophos.com is not bad.
                                        But you're playing with the hope of the users that something will really happen.
                                        The platform is not maintained either,
                                        There are a lot of features in it, allready realized since more than one version back.

                                          Gostaria de sugerir a implementação do agente do zabbix nos equipamentos Sophos XG, a sugestão é devido a necessidade que temos atualmente de monitorar alguns XG, que estão trabalhando como brigde e não possuem acesso quando a origem é a internet, com a possibilidade do agente zabbix poderíamos configurar para que o mesmo enviasse as informações para nosso servidor no SOC, independente do IP de saída.

                                          Resumidamente ter a opção de trabalho ativo e passivo.
