SSL VPN client that logs on before Windows
We need a SSL VPN that can log on before windows. This is required in many environments as it allows GPOs to resolve properly.
We encourage Sophos to identify a solution to this problem. We can not ask a user to return to the office, expecially during quarantine, only because his/her password expired or ... was forgotten. Having known it before, we would have not considered Sophos VPN.
Although this would be a very handy feature, we enforce the use of 2FA for all remote VPN connections. Seeing as the user has no way to enter a 2FA code before they login, it's not a feature I would ever use or recommend.
We really need this feature also..
In the current situation, where home office workplaces are all around, this is a crucial feature
We need this feature. Is it even on the future feature list?
Today, this feature is imperiously needed because COVID pandemia force people to stay at home in remote work and is not possible to add new users to domain without it, for example
This is a critical feature for us right now. Looking at other vendors due to the lack.
This feature is also needed in Sophos Connect.

these should be merged together:
2020 edit: even though this request is for the ssl vpn client it should be expanded to include Sophos Connect (currently ipsec but slated to include ssl in the future) VPN client.

I would like to auto login sophos ssl vpn before windows login like cisco anyconnect to enable remote user get connectivity AD for password resat..
2 years on and this is still on the unresolved list.
Sophos connect is looking reasonable, but desperately needs this feature
Palo-Alto also supports this.
Had I known Sophos did not, we would not have the XGs, we would have a palo-alto firewall instead.

we need this functionality asap in sophos, in Fortinet client this is beauty of this feature where user can directly login in domain before login in PC.
i Have also fortinet Firewall and we use it our another premises but i have complete sohphos enterprise security product and we need this feature as soon as possible so we can manage all the external employees directly from HO with this feature.
and you can change user password remotely
Possibility to do VPN before user login to OS.
Road warriors with expired or lost password has the sent pc to admin, otherwise they cannot set new password within Active Directory.
With Fortinet you can do VPN first and then login against AD, where is new (changed by admin) password.
We have lost at least 7 UTM deals because of this.
Fortigate have an excellent VPN client. Have several sites where I could remove Fortigate units if a decent VPN client with connect before logon for the Sophos units
