  1. Detailed List of IPS rules used in the XG Firewall

    I want to get an IPS rule file(.csv) in Sophos XG firewall. It does not allow to export to a file as a .csv. Would be used in the SIEM solution as a detection rule.

  2. Extend IPS/IDS content filter maximum file length

    The current file length limit for content filters is 2000 lines. It is important for us to extend it because many external lists are much longer than 2000 lines.

  4. Add/Change/Override URL category for website

    I see there are similar feature requests from other people but Sophos really needs to step with their support (really bad) as well as with features which will save a lot of time partners and Sophos XG admins.

    Since XG has really poor database of categorized websites, Sophos really needs to work on this in order to create workflow where non-categorized or wrongly categorized sites can be adjusted without taking big manpower from administrators!!!
    We also work with some other firewall vendors and categorization is actually next business day where customers are the ones submitting it over web.

    As far…

  5. import

    It would be helpful if you could import and export e.g. IP addresses or URL lists in the exception window for the web filtering. Currently you have to type them in one be one.

  6. Filter out search query results containing specific keywords in the Youtube app

    I would like to be able to filter out any results from appearing in the Youtube app which contain specific keywords, so videos and their metadata (description, etc.) which contain these keywords are not shown. The keywords may appear in the video name, channel name, video description, etc. basically in all the content youtube shows as part of the video.

    A user may search for a filtered out keyword, and this search is not blocked, but in the result set videos and their metadata which contain the keyword are filtered out. For the user the result set looks empty.

    See…

  7. Block all Youtube videos belonging to a specific channel

    I would like to block all the videos belonging to a specific channel, including videos which are included in the youtube home page, explore section, subscriptions section, library, playlists, history, youtube search results, etc. This needs to apply both when using the youtube app and the web site.

    As a result of the blocking the videos, descriptions, etc. (metadata) belonging to the channel will not be shown in the youtube home page, playlist, search result, history, etc. while other videos not belonging to the channel are shown.

    This also needs to apply as new videos are added to the channel,…

  8. wccp

    Like one the previous products (Sophos Web Appliance) that had been replaced, having WCCP support on the XG appliance would allow it to be dropped in directly. Thank you.

  9. Allow IP/FQDN exceptions on proxy settings

    We intended to host our website on our LAN. A public IP(a.b.c.d) was NAT to local server and it was accessible from open internet but the same public IP(a.b.c.d) was inaccessible from inside the LAN.

    On testing further, it was figured that when this public IP(a.b.c.d) is added to exception list (in advanced settings of proxy in Windows OS) as a.b.c.d or a.b.c.* etc, it worked fine.

    Sophos needs to have settings in proxy configuration where exceptions can be added, so that we don't have to make changes on >1000 computers.

  10. Chrome SSO should work externally as well. With all our students being educated form home It'd be great to push their filter profiles.

  12. Block exe and allow by typing a password

    The idea is to block by default certain file types, and instaed of just blocking, I would like to add the possibility to download them, by using an admin password, this way, when the user faces this, an Admin can go and type the password to download the file.

    I already saw this working on other vendor, but do not rember which one...

  13. Unrecognized SSL Protocol Exception

    Allow exceptions for the Unrecognized SSL Protocol blocking. Currently, a single IOT device in an isolated subnet requires this feature to be disabled across the board.

  14. Allow blocking of website using regex to allow for more flexibility in blocking sites.

    At the moment we can only block sites with keywords or domains, but we can add exceptions to allow sites through with regex. It would be great to be able to use regex to handle blocking also.

  15. Sophos protection in MS Teams

    Although I can see that Microsoft Teams is now a controlled application, determining if a user can run it or not, I want to ensure that Sophos protects the computer from any data being passed thru Teams.

    For example, if one user posts a file that has a trojan or a virus, does Sophos catch it?

  16. YouTube education Filter

    It is very useful for schools and colleges if Sophos enable the youtube education filter option in web policy.

  17. show the reason why "This website is blocked"

    How about showing the reason a website is blocked. You are doing the blocking so you know what the reason is. Display it to the user. If it's a rule then display the text of the description box for that rule. Or even the rule name would be of some help. That way users don't have to call IT to find out the reason they can't reach a site is because they have a typo or corporate policy won't allow it or....

  19. User permissions distinguishing between ADDING and REMOVING an entry to web- /content filter

    A more granular permission setting than read-only and read/write in web- and content filtering would be great: distinguishing between ADDING a new category, activity or URL to a web policy or REMOVING an already existing one is often needed by clients.

  20. Change/Override URL category for website

    I need to recategorize a site, similar used in Sophos UTM. Today I can only create a whitelist.
    Is there any possibility of doing this in the XG Firewall?
