MAC Address Groups for WiFi with being able to add a Name to the MAC address for SG & XG

This will be a well sought after feature as people often leave the company or upgrade their devices and searching for the old MAC address becomes a daunting task when we need to update it or remove it.

Can you add the feature where it allows us to create a MAC group and in it able to create individual users with multiple MAC addresses. That we can assign to a Wifi network.

As the current setup in the SG & XG, in MAC hosts we have to enter each mac address to a list, times how many users in that company, which in my case is over 100, and there are new people joining/ leaving every month which makes this a mess when trying to control and identifying the MAC.

Some of the devices are hand me downs or sold from, the company and of which MAC address are sometimes missed on the system due to the sheer overload of the list. This proses a strong security risk should the device return as a non-employee device which in turn has access to the system via the MAC on the UTM.

Please let us know if this feature can be added as we roll out quite a bit of Sophos UTM's to our clients, and if not we need to see how else we can accomplish this either with third-party apps or a different type of unit to manage this.
