  2. force uninstall of antivirus on machine from central management

    the ability to force an uninstall on a machine from the central management console...
    Right now I can force a scan a reinstall or delete it from the management console but I can't force a delete..
    One of my clients recently let a manager go but his personal laptop has the company's Intercept-x installed.. there is no way we can get this machine to uninstall the product...
    the only suggestion was to create a "block all" group and disable tamper protection so the user will not be able to go anywhere on the net and will be forced to uninstall…

  5. rchive and download logs

    Archive and download logs in tgz format like in iview. As you know that iview doesn't work, if this feature will be available we can download the logs from Sophos and save for future use. In case box fail we will not have the reports and we will not able to share the reports to Cybercrime team. I would request you to enable this features on urgent basis and I don’t want to go Jail.

  6. GUI Control for 'NATting' system initiated traffic

    currently there is no easy way to control NATting of System initiated traffic, this would be incredibly useful when using a 4G SIMs

    Which uses a Private IP address range not a public. there are also ISPs which use Private IP addresses and route Public IPs to the private IP.
    which means you cannot register or control using Central.

  8. SFM allow login security as you do for XG

    [On behalf of customer] XG allows you to block, Admin logins after X number of unsuccessful attempts from a same IP, SFM doesn't allow you to do this at the moment.

  9. Match Rules Lookup / Search Option

    I would suggest that there is a Match Rules Option like Fortigate's Policy Lookup.

    If say the XG have 1000 firewall rules, it is hard to match which rules will a particular packet will use to pass through. From this, it will help in troubleshooting and also help to check unused or misconfigured firewall rules.

  10. Central Mgmt: Don't delete backups from returned devices

    Previous firewall that was synchronized to the central admin (RMA'ed unit's backup from the sophos central) shouldn't be deleted once the new device will be overwritten. There should be a way to download it all and be imported to the newly synchronized unit.

  11. SFM Change Firmware update "Apply" button to "Schedule"

    In Sophos Firewall Manager, when updating the Firmware of an XG Firewall, there is an "Apply" button, which brings up a scheduler when clicked.

    This is confusing, as it seems like this button will apply the firmware immediately without warning. Please change the name of this button to "Schedule" instead of "Apply" so that it's more obvious that the firmware will be scheduled for install and not apply immediately.

  12. Allow monitor-only connection to Central Firewall Manager

    At the moment when when registering an XG firewall to Sophos central the only option is to enable central management or not.

    If central management is not enabled then we get a limited selection of alerts in central for the firewall, i.e. lost comms between XG and central.

    Typically in our deployments we do not want the firewall to be manageable via cloud service through central, particularly in higher security networks we permit local management only over our internal WAN or VPN links.

    Some level of granularity in between nothing or everything would be fantastic.

    For example a completely read-only…

  14. SFM: Add CCL Notifications

    In SFM, a notification for when a CCL entry is created would be ideal for Change Management. Upon receiving this notification from SFM, other administrators can look back over the CCL entry and bring up potential problems for reversion as necessary when they get an alert from SFM that a firewall's configuration was changed.

  15. Reorder rules in SCFM Template

    In a template in Sophos Central Firewall Manager, it's currently impossible to reorder rules (neither create a new rule between two existing rules).
    It's supposed that this is a basic functionality of a firewall managing system.

  16. SFM - Overwrite whole configuration with template

    I'd like to have the possibility to overwrite the whole configuration of a firewall with the content of an SFM template. Currently when applying a template from SFM the firewall rules merge with the ones configured locally.
    I´d like to have the possibility of replacing, instead of merging and have full control of the firewall from SFM, like others vendors have from their management server.
    This is to avoid human errors by a local administrators. For example someone can log locally on the firewall and configure an any any permit, then you apply your template and that any any remains.…

  17. 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.

  18. Manage XG firewall under Central Enterprise Dashboard

    Currently, Firewall management is not supported when central account belongs to enterprise dashboard admin due to different domain state. Looking forward to this feature will be supported at road map.

  19. Local Admin UI shows different config than Sophos Central

    When the XG is configured via Sophos Central the local admin UI:

    1) No longer shows the actual configuration of the unit - only the old config from the time administration was switched to SC.

    2) The local admin UI still allows configuration changes to be made. However, these changes are not applied to the unit. There is no warning about this either.

  20. Device Groups in SFM -> Firmware Update

    I'd like to create custom groups and add / remove firewalls by myself. This is already possible. But why am I NOT allowed to use this group in the "Firmware Update" section?
