  1. Separating “YouTube Restricted Mode” from "Enable SafeSearch" feature

    Separating YouTube "Restricted Mode" from "Enforce Safe Search" option in XG Firewall would allow much more flexibility for customers.
    YouTube "Restricted Mode" is currently just too “restricted” (not usable) and customers should have possibility to turn it on or off without impact on SafeSearch.
    On the other side, SafeSearch is very useful feature that customers would probably have always on.

  3. Per-policy control for SafeSearch

    Please provide the option to enable/disable Safe search and youtube restricted mode per policy.

    In schools we need the ability to enable/disable the safesearch and youtube restricted mode based on the policy for individual user groups rather than globally while at the same time as having web category filtering.

    For example we would like to turn safesearch mode and youtube restricted mode off for certain staff groups but while maintaining the category filtering, where as students we want safesearch and the youtube restricted mode on at all time.

  4. Bring back Web Filter override for specific AD groups

    In Sophos UTM there was an option to allow specific user groups to override a URL block under Web Filtering. This was really useful for educational environments so our teachers could bypass unintentional blocks for kids. Please bring it back! :)

  5. Device Specific Authentication

    UTM allows us to configure different web profiles where different device-specific authentication can be set.

    This is very useful in environment where BYOD is required and more than one profile is needed.
    So inherit from UTM.

  6. Pharming protection - Exception possibility

    it's not possible to create an exception on Pharming protection (Web --> Protection --> Advanced Settings).
    The default enabled function let you "Protect users against pharming and other domain name poisoning attacks by repeating DNS lookups before connecting."

    We were unable to get a vpn tool called "SSL network extender" working (to support a customer). The solution was to disable the Pharming protection completely.

  7. Allow regular expression matches on URLs in Web Policy

    We used to be able to implement regex URL blocks, not just regex exceptions to blocked domains. Please reinstate this.

    Websocket.

    IETF standard. Used by real-time comms on webpages.

  11. Make Web Proxy User Notifications fully customizable

    Being able to fully customize the user notifications (displayed to the user when browsing blocked or warned pages, for example (PROTECT --> Web --> User Notifications --> Message for Warn Action )) is desirable, e.g for purposes of translating the pages. The possibility to use templates with variables would be greatly appreciated.

  13. Category based surfing quota

    We have a request about surfing quota based on a specific category or categories. Right now, this is fuction is available for the general internet but not for a specific category. For instance, we need to restrict the users for accessing to social network websites about an hour a day. After they fill one hour allowance to social networking sites, they will not be able to reach to social networking but they will be able to use their usual internet usage.
    This function is available for other firewall brands and it is really necessary for some customers. I hope you…

  14. web realtime scanning notification

    When I switch the Webprotection Malware scanning mode to Realtime scanning, I dont see any Notification when a Virus is found.
    So maybe you can make it possible to recieve a notification when a Virus is found in Realtime scanning mode.

  16. Inspection of QUIC traffic

    It appears that currently QUIC traffic (UDP port 80/443) are not categorized by the web filter. Users seem to be able to access YouTube and other Google sites without any of their traffic being inspected.

  17. URL feedback enhancement

    On your support site please give us the abitlity to see how websites are categorised:
    https://secure2.sophos.com/de-de/support/contact-support.aspx

    Now it is only possible to send a url sample for a certain url. It would be better if you can make an url lookup to see how specific sites are caterorised.

    It should be possible similar to the mcafee trusted source site when you search for a specific url:
    https://www.trustedsource.org/

    This would make the admins life way easier to commit url samples.

  18. WPAD

    Couldn't find it previously suggested, so want to throw this in the mix. It would be awesome if we could host WPAD file locally on the XG unit. If I missed it in the documentation I'd appreciate if someone corrected me.

  20. Block Files Upload in Webmail

    The idea requested from client all the time form previes UTM firmware. Now XG has arrived with strong User and web singnature, I hope this feature is in your plan.
    Ideally, we should permit users to open a webmail (like Gmail.com or other public webmail or event Facebook, Dropbox, Onedrive, Google Drive)
    but i don't want to permit to attach file/upload file in a new mail on the webmail. In this way i can block a possible disclosure of corporate data. Thanks ---------- (BTZ shared this idea · October 16, 2013)
