Sophos VPN app for mobile platforms
Sophos should develop an own VPN app for mobile operating systems (iOS / Android / Windows Phone) which can connect via the UTM using the configuration pushed from the UTM to the SMC server.
It should also support the Per-App-VPN feature which was introduced in iOS 7.
This feature is considered a high priority, and is under consideration for a future release, though a target version or timeframe is not yet set.
Definitely would like an iOS client!

A Sophos Connect vpn client for ios and android mobile devices that supports 2FA / OTP would be helpful for XG deployments. We are currently having to support both Sophos Connect VPN for desktops and the original Sophos SSL VPN with OpenVPN for mobile clients rather than consolidating on one solution.

Whit ability to import ssl inspection certificate, please
Sophos connect client should be available for Android and IOS aswell.
iPhone config file for the native client is full tunnel There should an option to change this..

The other important feature is support for windows 10 mobiles as there are no openvpn versions that allow for the XG Vpn to be installed on Windows Phones.
No IPSEC for iOS???
IKEv2 is only supported in site-to-site mode....
Cisco VPN will install profile on ios where WAN IP adress cannot be changed - as we have 1:1 NAT from ISP, therefore clients connects to 10.10.100.101

there are other post with same feature request. please combine them
Sophos should create one own SSL VPN for desktops and smartphones to fill the gap between openvpn and competitors like fortinet, there is a lots of missing feature also here in requests (mass deployment, VPN before user login etc. just search here ....)
Any update on this feature?
Other vendors have Mobile APP for VPN.
waiting for this feature..

Moving to XG Firewall for consideration with the new platform and mobile apps.
The android app can be found here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.blinkt.openvpn
I use it with free-wifi access points, to call "home".
There is already an "openvpn for android" program, capable of this feature. Upload de config file from linux (from user-portal), to your phone, and read the config file, e voila.
We need this, too. I expected that I could you the SMC to UTM connection not only to push my VPN profiles to our mobiles, but use the Per-App-VPN feature as well ... and, it's not possible until now. (Maybe this depends on SMC code changes as well/only.)
A SSL feature in this App for Windows Phone would be great too. Because in WP you can build an App to integrate SSL-VPN into WP with native OS support through API.

This is a requirement, which should be put into the UTM requirement list.
