  1. Quarentine Mails - User Portal

    Quarentine Mails function in user portal is close to useless as it is today.
    The only option is to delete!

    There need to be an option to see the mail in clear text (safe).

    And an option to release the mail, if it was incorrectly quarentined.
    (Admin should be able so specify if a user can release the whole mail - including attachmens, or just the email body, without attachments!)

    - Option to send daily/weekly/montly reports of quarentined mails to the users mailbox.

    These are to be expected from a product with AV mail scanning functions!!!

  2. Include original message body of infected mails in clear text

    When Sophos XG Email Protection detects a virus in an attached file, it succesfully identifies this, and removes the infected attachment.

    But the user now receives only an "empty" email with the original text removed, and replaced with information about sender, receiver, and virus found and removed. (XG setting is remove and deliver)

    It would be desireable to have the option to also include original email body text, in clear text format.

  3. RED - device info and bandwith monitoring

    Sophos RED:

    I have just begun implementing Sophos RED devices to branch offices. And the implementation have been very straight forward and easy to deploy.

    What i really need is some way to get information about the device connectivity.
    - How much bandwith is the location using? (Daily, weekly etc.).
    - How is my 3G failover connectivity connection? (No/bad/good/excelent connection)
    - Email notification in the event of failing over to backup 3G / WAN.

    Right now i am simply blind on what status is on the RED...

    AND also - please add a RED category...

  4. Client Authentication Agent Update Push

    This is an idea for having future CAA agents detect newer versions available typically after a SFOS upgrade and prompt the user to update (or allow auto update). In the past I've had to manually update client authentication agents in the field after each release. The other sticking point is while the client_auth_agent.exe is digitally signed it does not include the product version number which makes identifying the version a bit tricky. However having the CAA auto-update (maybe from an admin checkbox on the UI) would save the time of the CAAs in the field on getting the absolute latest…

  6. Add OpenConnect AnyConnect Pulse SSL VPN server

    This is an idea to add the actively developed and open source OpenConnect server package to the XG Firewall. https://gitlab.com/ocserv/ocserv

    The OpenConnect server is compatible with CISCO's AnyConnect and Juniper PULSE (Secure) SSL clients. Thanks.

  7. Inspection of QUIC traffic

    It appears that currently QUIC traffic (UDP port 80/443) are not categorized by the web filter. Users seem to be able to access YouTube and other Google sites without any of their traffic being inspected.

  9. No NAT-T when configuring Site-to-Site IPSec VPN

    By default NAT-T is disabled for Site-to-Site IPSec VPN Connections. Unfortunately it is not possible to activate NAT-T when configuring a Site-to-Site IPSec tunnel, since this option is greyed out.

    In my case it is essential to use NAT-T, because the Remote Endpoint is located behind a NAT device.

  11. Share IP between User Portal and WAF

    Many small installation could benefit from ability to publish User Portal using Business Rule instead of enabling it directly in Device Access section. The difference is that a single IP can be used to host both User Portal and custom Web applications such as Web mail, Web storage, Web cameras, etc.

    Now, the only solution is to change User Portal listening port to something non-standard but this limits the ability to use it from some network environments where only standard WWW ports (80,443) are allowed.

  13. User wise all URL surfing report on schedule

    We want a user wise report which contains the list of URL that a individual user has surfed. This report should be consolidated which contains all user wise URL surfing table. That too should be on schedule basis (Daily/Weekly).

    Regards,
    Jigar

  14. Duo Authentication

    We used to use Duo with RADIUS in UTM 9 by adjusting the timeout in the configuration files. Would love to see native Duo support in XG, but if that isn't feasible than a supported way to use RADIUS with a longer timeout would work as well.

  15. True Network DLP

    DLP works quite well on Email but it is time to implement it even on Web. I would like to be able to know what my users are uploading to Cloud, DropBox and Webmail and decide to stop and log or log only. Also VPN client should be able to talk with XG and scan what users download from the company to their pc and block unauthorized content.

  18. Additional BGP features

    Within UTM you supported additional BGP configuration options than what is present in XG. I would specifically see AS prepend and filter lists implemented in XG.

    Thanks,

  19. User

    On systems with a large number of users (we have over 1100) the user management page is difficult to navigate. Clicking through pages of 20 users one page at a time is time consuming. I would like the ability to modify the number of users listed on each page. Choice of 20, 50, 100, 250 per page, for example, would be great.

    Also, the ability to jump to a specific page would be a nice feature.

    Thanks,
    Bob

  20. Merge new Web Categories added to Web Filter Policy

    When adding new Web Categories to a Web Filter Policy, the additions are all rejected if I inadvertently try to add a duplicate category. I would expect the XG to either just report and reject the duplicate entries while still adding in the rest or to overwrite the duplicate categories with the new category settings. There are quite a few categories and I can't look back at the list of previously entered categories to know whether or not a category has already been added.

    An alternate solution would be to remove previously entered categories from the Add New Item list…
