  2. 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.

  7. 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.

    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.

  11. 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…

  14. Quota on Web

    The administrator must able to reset the Quota for a user.
    This option was working fine on the UTM but is not available in the XG.

    The Quota is only good working wen I can set Quota on a user activities group.
    And in this group are categories.
    And a user can be in different groups on the XG.

    So you have a group whit free internet for work and a group whit Quota internet for pause or fun.

  16. 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

  19. 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.
