  2. Application-Traffic Shaping based on percentage of WAN bandwidth available

    Allowing to set application bandwidth based on the percentage of the WAN bandwidth available will make enable copying configs from firewalls with different total WAN bandwidth. Moreover will make it a less hassle to upgrade or downgrade WAN bandwidth in the future. This feature would greatly enhance the settings for MSPs or vendors who send out pre-configured firewalls.

  3. Custom Application Category

    We could like to be able to create a custom Application Category for applications discovered as part of the Synchronised Application Control process.

    We would like to be able to block newly discovered/uncategorised applications (SyncAppCtl), until they have been verified by an admin. Once verified we would like to add them to a custom category which we can allow/deny access to the Internet as part of an application filter policy.

  4. Exempt Specific Applications from Traffic Quota

    Allow us to 'exclude' certain applications which may not be able to be configured on an IP/port basis, from the Quota functionality.
    E.g Skype, Viber, Skype4Business, Office365

    Also, Windows Update and other software update that may consume quota quickly.

  6. User level application policy in Sophos XG like internet scheme on XG

    I would request to Sophos team to have feature to control/apply user level policy for application filter as well , when we migrate from cyberoam to Sophos there was feature called internet scheme where we can select the users separate policy even they have another group. Please bring this option or advice us is there any other option made in Sophos

  8. Browser based proxy authentication

    Implement browser based authentication like what the UTM and all other solutions offer. This would be brilliant for the authentication to be browser based on devices with multiple users using it with the same IP

  9. Identify internet services/apps by IP/port for use in firewall rules

    Add Internet services (applications) to firewall policies. Maybe very useful to switch to a real application firewall. Now also fortinet introduced the "internet service database" to reach this goal

  10. Application

    Allow (within the organization) the ability to add their own applications. Currently there appears to be no way to add a custom application without getting approval through the Sophos board.

  12. Clone application filter policies

    Allow cloning of policy in Application Filter. It would be great if i can clone a policy and tweak it for other staff to use, saves a lot of time.

  13. Allow modification of app filter default action

    It does not seem possible to change the default action for an application filter once it has been created. While there may be little need for this in most use-cases, it would be tremendously helpful for one-off testing.

  16. Block page

    Sophos websites and application block page is looking very weird. It should be customized or at least have some good view. i.g. fonts and center image, logo etc. like other firewalls have.

  19. OpenAppID integration

    OpenAppID is an open, application-focused detection language and processing module for Snort that enables users to create, share and implement application detection. OpenAppID puts control in the hands of users, allowing them to control application usage in their network environements and eliminating the risk that comes with waiting for vendors (Sophos, for example) to issue updates.

    OpenAppID harnesses the power of open source and the larger security community to provide application visibility and address the application attack vector by accelerating development of application detectors and controls. Application-layer context augments security events that tie to attack protection and allows for granular…

  20. 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.
