  1. Stop auto loading the Live Graph

    When navigating to Diagnostics --> System Graphs the page automatically renders all the graphs for the last 2 hours. This forces you to wait to change the time period. Please stop the auto rendering, and allow the admin to select the time period and click the update button.

  2. Add Duo MFA integration to Sophos XG

    Apparently the older Sophos UTM has Duo MFA integration. Please build this into Sophos XG firewalls. Duo is extremely powerful, flexible, usable for individuals, companies or full-blown MSPs unlike most of the other MFA solutions available.

  3. 4G/5G USB Dongle Support

    I think it is high time Sophos updated the USB Dongle HCL to include modern technologies such as 4G/5G. With 3G ending for a lot of people soon many of the devices on the current list are about to become obsolete.

  4. Add more note fields

    On the SG devices there are several fields for notes and comments which really help us in our job. The XG is only a few of them and in most cases there is no chance to add any comment to it.
    Please add at least the note fields from the SG devices.

  5. Periodically sync with Active Directory

    Please allow us to sync periodically with Windows AD to pull new users, remove old ones, etc... and same with groups.

    It’s very difficult to manage 30+ firewalls with users being able to login to any of them depending which site they visit.

    Also need to allow nested groups support.

  6. Update the BIOS on SG to change the HW ID so it appears as an XG once upgraded to SFOS?

    Right now we can upgrade later SG models to the latest firmware and essentially turn them into an XG at least from a firmware standpoint. Unfortunately they still show up as SG models which in turn prevents us from creating an HA pair with the same exact XG model even though the hardware is virtually identical. If you compare an SG230 Rev.1 and an XG230 Rev.1 they appear to be exactly the same. Why not give us a BIOS update so our upgraded SG model can now become an XG?

  7. Ability to create an HA pair using one SG and one XG if both are running SFOS 17+.

    So here is the scenario, client has invested a good bit in the latest SG hardware and has since upgraded that hardware to SFOS essentially making it an XG. Now they would like to buy the same model but get the XG this time since the SG is bound to go away in the future, and set them up as an HA pair. This way they keep their investment in the SG and have the latest and greatest hardware as their primary firewall. As I understand it from Technical Support they cannot do this as they would have to be…

  8. Add notification when WAN to LAN rule executes.

    I think Sophos have to add notification when WAN to LAN rule executes.

  9. Option to disable Email notification completely

    If we enable email notification we can not turn it off we must have the option to disable email notification along with to choose which notification must be enabled like WAN link or backup.

  10. Standardkonfigurationssprache

    Deutlicherer, farbliche Unterstreichung/Hervorhebung bezüglich dem Hinweis beim wechseln der Sprache, dass hier die Konfiguration der Firewalll gelöscht wird und somit die Firewall in den Auslieferungszustand gesetzt wird . Das vor dem Neustart ein Update der aktuellen Konfiguration der Firewall gespeichert werden muss (Aufforderung kann nicht weggeklickt werden). Das Speichern der aktuellen Konfiguration wird dann im im aktiven Browser heruntergeladen.

    System/Sicherung&Firmware/Firmware -> wechseln der Standardkonfigurationssprache

  12. Ability to export back end diagnostic logs

    The back end diagnostic logs contain valuable information, but are difficult to utilise when having to work with several side, especially Microsoft Azure platform.
    There needs to be a way to export / access the diagnostic logs for IPSec and PPPOE without having to SSH connection to the console and just tail them.

  13. FQDN on any menu and service

    Make the FQDN host and host group available in any required service and menu. We live in the DNA era, not in the Stone Age.

  14. Encrypted Backups - Option to use or not use

    Allow to not encrypt backups on XG Firewall 17.5. RIght now we are forced to do encrypted backups. It would be nice to have an option to skip it.

  15. Deploy in the Sophos firewall to show in which rules an object is linked

    Deploy in the Sophos firewall to show in which rules an object is linked (host and services). This is very useful when I want to delete the object.

  16. Consistent and "advanced" table rendering throughout the product/UI

    This is for ALL Tables in the XG Gui and Portal.

    The Idea is having a consistent and advanced table rendering framework throughout the product/UI

    This is really annoying ... and almost any other web GUI based system has this "function" or framework.

    But the Voucher Table being the worst!

    So let's take the Voucher Table: (but applies/must apply to ALL UI places where tables are shown)

    - You can only sort by "Code" ?? ... no other Fields (>>ALL<< Fields should be sortable, searchable and filterable)! Always and in every table.
    - have an option to export to CSV …

  17. Enlarge maximum number of zones to greater than 100

    Currently the maximum number of zones is set to 100. Can this be enlarged to, f.i., 200.

  18. Offboarded Users are not able to remove from XG firewall from authentication. It should be remove dynamically

    Off boarded users are not able to remove from XG firewall from authentication. It should be remove dynamically. Becasue how we use STAS for authentication the same way STAS should tell firewall to remove disabled users.

  20. high contrastdisplay scheme

    The color combinations on the XG website as well as the Sophos cloud site are week and promote eye-strain. My technicians now must turn on windows high-contrast to work on the the interfaces for any length of time. The colors are washed out and weak to say the least. A security company should denote strength rather than weak and washed out. What ever happened to any contrast ration with black easy to read fonts on a white or light crey background?

    Also we attempt to hire veterans and have some vision impaired veterans that cannot provide support for Sophos because…
