  1. Add tiktok to application policy list.

    Add tiktok application to application policy list to manage traffic easily. It's a high data consuming app and please always ensure a way to control application traffic by sending updates for latest application or suggest a way we can add application manually as sophos let us control web traffic.

  3. master key is forcefully feature. keep it an optional

    i am strongly recommended that keep this master key feature optional. as i am facing lots of problem regarding Master key. i am administrator & managing 5 Sophos device of each different location. we are already using encryption password method for backup.
    so why this feature needed and mandatory ?

    this is forceful feature not usable for my current scenario & have double headache to remember key and store it on safe place.

    also i read in your website , if we lost this key all backup will loss. if you have don't have recovery option this feature is useless…

  4. Need Bulk Users Upload Features (Hight Important )

    I don't know what is logic of behind that they have removed the Bulk Users upload Feature.
    really Bizarre, in this new MR -4 firmware they not provided this feature as well.
    Sophos is not fulfill the customer satisfaction, also not provide alternative solution.
    They force customers to use whichever they provided.

    could you add 100 users every week manually ?

  5. bypass snort application recognigtion per rule

    Please add the ability to bypass ips/application regognigtion per rule, when performance is needed. even without applied ips rule, snort is analysing the traffic for application control, which result in a performance impact.

  11. Synchronized Application Control - Set Category for multiple Apps at a time

    Allow setting a category for multiple applications at once.

    Synchronizes Application Control identifies a number of applications but puts them under "SyncAppCtl Discovered" Category. Some apps get detected multiple times because of different paths or other reasons.

    It would be great to be able to select multiple applications from the list and set a category for them in one go.

  12. Bulk Users Upload feature Removed

    How strange, shocking…..
    Now Sophos has removed ths bulk users upload feature in this MR18 Version. This was a good feature in my previous firmware so i could be easily uploaded 100 of users at the time. Can you tell me why removed this feature?

    It is a campus and 100 students are admitted in a new batch every week, I want to upload 100 new users so how do I do this?
    Do I have to do this manually? Can you do that ?

    We are planning to go back to the previous version to avoid more issue

    Sophos…

  13. application control

    Show blocking page when an application is blocked by application control.
    Currently we only see a browser error when an application is blocked and we often need to check the logs to find out which application caused the block.

  15. Application filter category : Ads & Tracker

    In the application filter there is an category called "e-commerce". When you look inside the application list, you can see a lot of banking apps listed but also Ad-Server apps and tracker. It would be nice when there is seperate new category like "Ads & Tracker". This would make it more easier for the administrator to filter and block unproductive web apps.

  17. XG App Control vs UTM, XG feels underwhelming

    As it stands now, XG's App Control feels very underwhelming.

    Compared to UTM, XG's feels very lackluster in terms of features, categories and capability.

    For instance, why does XG not have the option to block Advertisements and Trackers?

    UTM has the option to block Ads and Trackers, and does a pretty good job at it.

    The Web Filter's "advertisement" category does a very poor job and doesn't block nearly as much ads as UTM does. Having the ability to block ads not only by Web Filter policy, but also App Control is in my opinion a very solid foundation to…

  18. Currently the following features are not available in the firewall. I hope that these features will be updated in the firewall in the future

    Currently the following features are not available in the firewall. I hope that these features will be updated in the firewall in the future.
    • If internet traffic exceeds the internet plan, the alerts e-mail should be automatically sent to admin from firewall.
    • Currently live internet speeds cannot be checked in the firewall which should happen.
    • If the speed of the internet is less than the plan of the internet, the alert email should be sent automatically to admin from the firewall.

  20. Manual classification of unclassified traffic

    I see 90% of my traffic as unclassified, it falls into 2 buckets: veeam and zerto. Any way to get these properly classified by TCP port number?
