  1. On Demand CPU Scaling

    The firewall would be scaling the CPU up/down depending on utilization. Main benefit would be less power usage, and possibly better efficiency.

    Should use CPU technologies available like AMD's Cool'n'Quiet or Intel's SpeedStep

  2. SSL VPN client that logs on before Windows

    We need a SSL VPN that can log on before windows. This is required in many environments as it allows GPOs to resolve properly.

  3. SSL VPN client for mass deployment

    We need a way to deploy the SSL VPN on mass without logging into the user portal. A standard MSI would be ideal which could be deployed by any ESD or as part of an image.

  4. DHCP - Clients via DHCP/DHCPv6 relay agent

    XG Firewall already has the option to serve either as a DHCP server, or as a DHCP relay agent for another DHCP server. However, when using the XG Firewall as the DHCP server, there is no option to serve DHCP clients via a DHCP relay agent (i.e., when another device is serving as the relay agent). As a result, DHCP pools on the XG Firewall can only be configured using address ranges that are contained within the subnet range of the selected interface. This option is available when setting up address pools in UTM9.

  5. Route based VPN in XG Firewall

    Route based VPN is a very much required feature in XG Firewall. Lot of Cyberoam customers are using this feature, primarily for MPLS to VPN failover using Dynamic Routing. In multi-branch scenario, Sophos cloud is a great solution with Synchronized security. But customers who are using Route based feature are not able to upgrade their Cyberoam devices to SF-OS because of the feature lack.

  6. Allow service object creation while creating a service group

    make creation of a service while creating a service group available. Right now I had to create all the desired services. And only after that could I create the group and add the services

  7. Export-Import Reports and Logging

    For customer that do not use iView, we need a way to export logs and reports before a format is needed for some reason (when no HA is used).
    Also now the license is attached to serial, so imagine a customer need to move to another appliance (bigger or smaller) he will lose all data.
    Inside Administration, there is a Menu "Import/Export). You could add the feature inside there.
    Once exported, reports/logs should be imported again as History or merging with the new data.

  8. Report - Time spent for single Website/URL

    At the moment, there is no reports to know how much time a user spent on a website.
    This kind of report was available on Executive report and Web reports.
    Very useful to undestand how employees spend their time during working hours or custom date/time.

    Please add.

  9. Using Sophos Home for Home licence

    The Security Hartbeat uses the commercial version of Sophos cloud services.
    For home licence users it would be nice to have the Sophos home cloud instead of to exchange the Sophos endpoint protection of UTM).

  10. Common Objects used in all configurations

    Give us objects like in the UTM, Why do i have to set a static ip in the dhcp, add a dns record in the dns server and create a ip host object for firewall rules, when i could do it all with one object in the UTM.. This was for me a really really perfect feature and it makes it all a lot easier to administrate since you don't have to do the same over and over again for different parts of the configuration.

  11. SSTP VPN - Native Support

    Microsoft PPTP VPN is using a weak algorithm (MS-CHAP v2 which can be cracked) so you should upgrade to SSTP vpn protocol available from Windows Vista. You could allow users to download certificate from user portal and no more actions are required on client side. Think about whem you need to manage 100 users and you need to manage them, such as udating their client or when they move from once PC to another. In this way, is the client OS that manage the entire overhead and from XG side is another add-on from TMG's competitor.
    The same request has…

  13. Multiple upstream web proxies

    Define multiple upstream HTTP proxies.

    Define URL-based policies to determine which proxy should be used, or whether traffic should go direct.

    Each proxy may require authentication.

  15. Can we have live Bandwidth speeds for Interfaces?

    It would be great to be able to see live Bandwidth speed stats for each Interface like we had on UTM.

  16. Editing multiple policies at once

    It will be nice to have the possibility to editing multiple Policies at the same time by having a check box on the left (as it is already available on Services Objects) and be able to perform general modification, such as:

    enable/disable logging
    
    edit MASQ
    edit users/groups member
    enable/disable heartbeat
    allow/deny/reject action
    change Application/IPS/Web filtering
    malware scanning option

  19. ip tunnel - local endpoint - Possibility to choose an interface instead of fixed IP

    If you have DHCP on the WAN interface and also an IP-Tunnel which terminates there, it would be great if you can configure the local endpoint dynamically. (Take the IPv4 value of interface Port1)
