  1. ALLOW A USER TO BELONG TO MORE THAN ONE AD GROUP

    ALLOW A USER TO BELONG TO MORE THAN ONE AD GROUP

    It would be very convenient to assign permissions to Active Directory (AD) groups so that a user can simultaneously belong to several groups (eg, Shopping, Social_Sales, Travel, etc.). Currently only one AD group can belong.

  3. File extensions mime headers

    At the moment files who match File extensions, or MIME headers are be blocked, or broke the downloaded file. It would be nice if there is a option, that only blockes files if extension and MIME Headers match.

    Create an exclusion list for the safe search you tube videos so that it does not have to be an all or nothing approach.

  5. Bypass Blocked Executable Download with Credentials

    I love that the system can block users from downloading executable files. But this same feature hampers the IT department in their work, actually creates more work because for every software title/vendor that we must download, we have to create an exception for their sites, and that can add up over time.

    I would love to see something on the block page provide the opportunity for an IT/firewall admin to enter credentials in order to continue through the block screen in order to download that executable. I may not always want a global exception, just the ability to the IT…

  8. Quota on Web

    The administrator must able to reset the Quota for a user.
    This option was working fine on the UTM but is not available in the XG.

    The Quota is only good working wen I can set Quota on a user activities group.
    And in this group are categories.
    And a user can be in different groups on the XG.

    So you have a group whit free internet for work and a group whit Quota internet for pause or fun.

  10. restrict file upload by extension type

    XG Firewall should have an option for restricting file upload by extension type.
    this would really help in protecting the confidential data

  13. Block Notification Page Should Be Secure

    When a user should be seeing the block notification when they hit a web protection rule, instead they get a security warning from the browser. According to support "As XG is only rewriting the content of the webpage on the blocking and not rewriting the URL itself that is why you are seeing certificate error on the block page." This happens even though we have a valid public certificate set up on the XG.

    So if a user is trained correctly, they will not bypass the security warning and will never see the descriptive block notification. This should be corrected.

  16. Apply different traffic shaping per Web Category

    Hello,

    the actual need is to apply different traffic shaping policy to the same Web category,
    each policy is to be applied to a specific group of people

    example: allowing streaming Category to all users (for normal users with a limitation of 128 KB/s but for managers the limit could be 512 KB/s)

    in order to do so 3 possible solutions

    1 ) give us the ability to clone Web categories
    2 ) give us the ability to create new categories of categories
    3 ) do not apply any traffic shaping to the Categories but apply it directly on the…

  17. let Web-mail category include all it's URL

    the problem started when I wanted to allow only webmail to a specific group of users

    most of webmail servers use generic URLs for their authentication.

    the problem is that those URLs are categorized as (search engine, dynamic DNS & ISP, etc...)

    it will be very helpful if you can add those specific URLs as part of the webmail category
    as you can't access the webmail without them.

    thanks in advance for your help and cooperation.

  18. Office 365 corporate domain

    Dear Team,

    As you updated in 17.5 MR3 for Google app restriction in which customer can allow thier custom domain, can we expect the same platform for Office365 apps. As of now there is no workaround to restrict personal domain login on office 365 except corporate domain.

  19. Allow Sandstorm to show every request to help debugging

    Sometimes I find Web sites that appear to be unresponsive unless I add an exception to the XG to skip Sandstorm scanning for them (or create a clone rule that has "Scan for zero-day threats with Sandstorm" disabled.) I spent over three hours with Sophos tech support trying to figure out why this was happening because nothing was showing in the sandboxd log, and it couldn't be set to debug log level to confirm if this is a bug or if Sandstorm is working as designed.

    So please add a debug log level option to sandboxd and allow it to…

  20. FTP file path should be included in the FW Manager Maintenance Config Backup

    In the Firewall Manager (17.x.x) there is no file path option in the FTP configuration download when backing up the Firewall Manager configurations. This option is however present for the Firewall Config backups. It should be available for both.
