    • Improve DLP Notifications to sender

      When DLP encrypts a mail the notification that the sender receives has an attachment with the headers of the encrypted mail. Not all senders of email are IT admins. Please change the senders DLP notification so that they are made aware of which email sent was encrypted and why e.g. Your email sent to (recipient) at 27/1/2019 13:00 was encrypted as it contained an IBAN number.....

      • Make to possible to use MTA in Sophos XG without Transparent Mode

        Currently it's only possible to use the MTA in Transparent Mode.

        It's not possible to choose to use it only as MTA without the Transparent Mode.
        If the Automatic MTA Rule is disabled MTA isn't working anymore.

        Please make it possible to choose between a Transparent and a not Transparent Mode of the MTA like it was in Sophos UTM.

          • Syslog Servers - Export Logs DHCP

            From our Sophos XG 450 devices we would need to export logs related to DHCP.
            The data we need are: IP address, Mac address, Host Name.
            We would also need to export logs related to SSL VPN Client connections with the same information (IP address, Mac address, Host Name)

            • Export mail logs to CSV or extend email logs under log viewer

              When looking through Email - Mail Logs i'm able to view previous days/months. When looking through log viewer i'm only able to see the previous day. I would like an option to export mail logs from the Email - Mail Logs menu as this contains more usable data.

              • MAIL with Protected file got quarantined and not delivered to the recipient

                While some one send a mail with protected File as an attachment, Sophos will not show any logs in the e-mail Logs Troubleshooting and it quarantine mails even-if sender address/mail domain is added in the white-list.
                Sophos will send bounced back mail to the sender regarding nondelivery of the mail for those recipients who are in CC that sopho could not able to send the mail with recipient error .

                As of now solution is send the protected file as zip format in the attachment.

                • Reflexive feature for Lan-Lan rule creation supposed to be there in Sophos Firewall as like cyberoam

                  As I recently noticed while creating Business rule to forward port that if we select "create reflexive rule" it doesn't create rule for Lan-Lan access as cyberoam does have that.

                  So request you to kindly add this feature in future upgrade. it helps to optimize time and have clarity for the same.

                  • SBC Feature in Missing in FIrewall

                    I have recently purchased Sophos XG210 & XG330 two firewall but none of them having the facility to change the SIP URI address in incoming & Outgoing traffic on gateway level.
                    Sophos must include this feature in the next version because of this now I am moving to another firewall which has this feature.

                    My Case ID is #8563807 your support team tried thier level best to support me but due to lack of sophos feature they coulnd manage to support me.

                    • Webserver Protection Password Validation for Forms template.

                      Webserver Protection forms authentication do not have any kind of validation for wrong username or password. IF a user types in incorrect credentials there is not notification why, just reloads page. This product is not ready for production without it. Even the Hotspot login page have customization for errors. https://docs.sophos.com/nsg/sophos-firewall/17.5/Help/en-us/webhelp/onlinehelp/nsg/sfos/concepts/LoginPageTemplate.html

                      • Heartbeat Client Monitoring Regardless of Location

                        Regardless of clients PC network, there still need to be a mechanism that allows heartbeat monitoring. Only having a feature that is network dependent defeats a centralized management system. With multiple remote clients and offices not having the ability to monitor these stations because they are not on the same network as the firewall is very limiting and not practical.

                          Currently i'm using the firmware version 17.5.0. It is not possible for mac binded user to be shown under the web reports until and unless they are using some authentication via firewall with match known users ticked under the firewall rule and it will not show you any detailed history of any of the user, you can find that on the user machine's browser. In these report we are able to see only the parent URL and we are not able to see the child URL. The parent URL will be google.com by default itself as most of the users…

                            • Enhancements to Web Policy Overrides

                              The "Web Policy override" is a welcome addition to Sophos XG, however I believe that there needs to be more options to enable admins to effectively control when these overrides are active and how they are implemented.

                              I think Admins should be able to remove the "Allowed website categories" option so staff can only enable specific domains.

                              Instead of the "Restricted to time periods" option i would prefer it if we could allow staff to select a start date and time, and pick from an admin controlled list of durations for the override (e.g. staff could set an override to…

                                  • Remove the Limit of 50 Configs in OpenVPN GUI

                                    Currently there is a limit of 50 configs in OpenVPN GUI.
                                    There are already prereleases of the original OpenVPN GUI which remove those limit and add nested configurations.

                                    I would like to see that in Sophos XG SSL VPN Client too.

                                    • Quarantine Digest points to Admin port

                                      When you configure the quarantine digest to reference the external IP address of the XG unit, the digest email references the "Admin Console Port". This is absolutely absurd. It effectively means that I need to open up access to the Admin portal to the entire world without restriction - this is a MASSIVE security risk.

                                      The easiest solution is to change the XG to use the User Portal port for the "release" link under the action heading.

                                      • XG VRRP Support

                                        @Sophos Development Team - When can we expect VRRP on XG, or between the same and or different XG models? FortiNet is on speed with this feature and I've used it many times on Forti before. It really came in handy with different scenarios.

                                        • tls verification errors must be logged

                                          As long as you open a https page via browser you may see that there is an ssl verification error and xg did block traffic.

                                          as tls verification is also implemented in FTPS (Scan FTP for Malware) you wont get any message on fails, you just can imagine that traffic won't pass because of an tls error.

                                          same if https is use by applications e.g. internal software updates
