  1. LDAP Support

    ability to authenticate user to LDAP Server without previously import the user.
    Ability to the user belong to more than one group on LDAP Server, and sums Policies assigns to Groups.
    I'm migrating from SonicWall to XG Sophos and this feature is missing and impacting on my migration.

    Thanks,

      • Add an UNDO Button

        Would be helpful if you could reverse changes to say a firewall rule or security policy just by clicking on an Undo button.

        • Add Visualization of Networks and VPN Connections

          Would be awesome if you could look at a chart of how your network is configured from within the XG. Might make diagnosing issues easier if you could see precisely where things are breaking with this kind of visual feedback.

          • Create a SG to XG Translation Document

            Could you create a document that would explain where to find a setting on the XG that people who are adept at the SG could use to figure things out? Would be great if it was an interactive website or even better built-in to the XG so we could view a classic SG interface, select what we want to do, and have it take us to the page in the XG where we do that with an explanation of the differences.

            • Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Frimware Installation.

              Scheduled Installation of the AV Updates and Firmware Installation is required. The firmware updates and AV Updates should get automatically downloaded over the WAN interfaces, however installation of this updates should be done only when the Date and time is scheduled by the Network Administrator.

              In addition to the available scheduling options, the custom category should be added, where in the administrators can select a custom date and custom time, after selecting the custom date and custom time the system should prompt if these settings are just to be executed once, daily, weekly, every 15 days or monthly.

              • HA like UTM

                Clustering UTM is very easy. Now you have to assing an IP to the ***** XG and create the cluster. UTM clustering technology is the simplest one I never seen. The other thing is the DMZ zone to be used when you need to create the cluster. A dedicated zone should be available (maybe HA?). Also a second interface is missing as an alternate interface.

                  • Add Windows XP as a High Risk Application

                    Can you add the ability to detect what operating system a computer is running (based on HTML headers perhaps) and warn if certain operating systems such as XP are seen?

                    • Add a feature such as One-Click Compliance

                      Would be great if you could add the ability to configure the UTM for PCI compliance with a simple check box or wizard. As it is now it becomes a real chore to comply with PCI DSS on both the XG and UTM 9. Adding this would be a first in the industry most likely.

                      • Add DNS-O-Matic DynDNS Provider

                        Add DNS-O-Matic to DDNS in Sophos XG Firewall. While there are many suggestions to add DDNS service providers, DNS-O-Matic supports many of the ones listed here, so all providers can be udpated from Sophos XG with only one call.

                        • Support Multiple Forest not Trusted

                          STAS rocks! Anyway if you have to manage multiple Forests (not trusted) the XG cannot accomplish the task. Other vendors support this feature. This feature gives to XG a step further for use it in big environment.
                          When you will implement this feature, you should allow the Admins to decide if split the XG in multiple firewall (virtual firewall feature http://feature.astaro.com/forums/330219-sophos-xg-firewall/suggestions/11262702-virtual-firewall) or not.
                          Thanks.

                          • PPTP/L2TP no members by default

                            By default, as soon as you enable PPTP or L2TP all the users are added as members (local and AD too). This is not safe. Instead the "show members" list should be empty and Admin adds the needed users. Even if you can manage PPTP and L2TP on single users or group, Admin should decide who put in the list. Please adjust this feature. Also change the name to PPTP (Remote access) and L2TP (Remote Access). Last but not least, instead of having show members and add members tab, create the same Identity area as you did for SSL VPN…

                            • Availability Groups

                              In the UTM I had a "Public DNS Servers" availability group, which was listed in "DNS Forwarders". I found this to be the best way to maintain reliable DNS forwarders in the UTM. Currently there is no way to create availability groups in the XG, let alone use them for DNS forwarders. I miss this feature.

                              • XG displays nothing about what new firmware adds, updates, etc.

                                HW-SFOS_15.01.0_MR-1.1.SF300-407 just came out. There is no information displayed in the XG about what this firmware update adds, repairs, etc and of course I'm a bit wary of installing it. It would be very helpful if this information (a short summary of the release notes) was displayed on the Firmware page (and maybe with a link to the release notes). I've been unable to find this info anywhere else either so I'll be wasting tech support's time to get it before upgrading. I like the other posters idea about receiving an email notification for updates as well but I think…

                                • Add navigation to first and last page for multipage displays

                                  In log files and in other areas of the UI where there are multiple pages presented, you can only go right or left one page at a time. A multipage selector with first and last controls would be ideal. But at a minimum be able to go to first page/last page directly. When paging through a log, it takes a long time to get back to the first page.

                                  • Web portal to view secure email

                                    The SPX Email Encryption is an awesome feature used by many of my customers. However, it's not always trust by recipients because everyone these days are taught not to open unusual emails. The likes of UK Government and Barclays send an email to you to say there is a secure document waiting in their portal. So you logon and see that document and have the choice to save it locally.

                                    What would be awesome is this same/very similar feature on the UTM/XG, so you still have the SPX encryption engine but the email/pdf is held on the device for X…

                                    • RED: Webfilter Agent or Module on RED for local web breakout.

                                      Lots of customers love the idea of the Sophos RED, but they are less enthusiastic when they learn about the web filtering limitations.
                                      The remote site must have an Internet connection as this is what the RED uses to connect back to the central SG/XG, but if they use this for direct internet access, they have no web protection features. If they backhaul web traffic to the SG/XG they get web filtering, but waste a lot of bandwidth in the process.
                                      I am suggesting a RED, that allows local breakout, but has a local web filter proxy controlled transparently by…

                                      • Add Lookup for Message ID on Security Policy Log

                                        Security Log Denies shows a 'Message ID' but there is nowhere to look up what the message is saying.... even an on-line table with the ID's and maybe a link from the ID in the log or even a link on the page to the table would be muchly appreciated. WE see that its getting denied? Why is it getting denied? For instance what is 01001 message ID?

                                        • Add doc for Configuration of IPS for XG similar to UTM

                                          You have a document that shows how to set up IPS on the UTM. We BADLY need the same type doc for the XG as IPS and setup can be very confusing! Include example screens when you do!

                                          Here is doc for UTM but it is useless for XG.
