  1. DHCP Static Assignment from List of Leases

    On the UTM9 you could assign a static lease to a device by clicking on a Make Static button, please add this functionality to the XG.

  2. Use E-mail Sensitivity header for SPX Encryption

    Rather than require a plugin to encrypt an e-mail can you add the option of using the Sensitivity header which has been around for quite a long time now and is used by your competition (IronPort) to trigger encryption. A simple check box in the setup of the SPX profile will be sufficient. Just seems like you are trying to re-invent the wheel with your Outlook Add-in which in its current state on the UTM won't even install on most computers without an error.

  3. DLP - trigger encryption based on keywords in subject

    Please add the ability to encrypt e-mail based on a keyword at the beginning of the Subject of an e-mail like "Secure" or "Confidential" or "Encrypted". This functionality already exists on the SG, can you bring it over to the XG? In lieu of this could you provide more than just a plugin for Outlook? Something for mobile devices? An extension for Thunderbird?

  4. WIFI - HOTSPOT - Email authentification with report

    It's was a good idea to create just email authentification in Hotspot and to have report with all mail. Free Wifi is good but a lot of Customer want to have a revenu with free wifi.

  5. Email Quarantine and SMTP spool management

    A feature to allow Admins to do the following:

    - View the SMTP mail spool and perform actions (delete, download, view, bounce, retry)
    - View SMTP log, with filters, searching, sorting
    - View corrupt/undeliverable SMTP messages and perform actions (delete, download)

  6. Web Filter exceptions based on User Agent

    I believe this is related to an existing suggestion:
    http://feature.astaro.com/forums/330219-sophos-xg-firewall/suggestions/10944024-resolve-netflix-streaming-issue

    UTM customers are able to get around Netflix streaming issues using the workaround detailed here: https://www.sophos.com/support/knowledgebase/121646.aspx
    This involves creating an exception for traffic based on its User Agent. There is no option to do this when configuring exceptions in XG as far as I can tell.

  7. Customize Logo for SPX Portal

    Like the UTM allow for a custom logos to be uploaded and used for the SPX portal page (possibly block pages as well?). This is currently not available when making SPX templates.

  9. Notification Rules

    At the moment no way to customize notification. I receive mail when the WAN gateway is down/up.
    You need to provide us a way to create rules where we can decide when receive notification, alert level (warning, information, critical),who will receive the notification. As soon you integrate SMS, please also allow us to receive SMS (it is an old way) but when the mail does not work....
    I would suggest you to create a panel as the Network Policy Rule rule to manage notification rules.

  11. Two IPSec Peer on VPN Configuration

    We have more customer with many branches and two or more Internet connection. We want to enable a Singla VPN SA that could be terminated on two differents Peer IPSec Gateway, so we can create a reliable VPN Connection that can use two different Internet connection, depend on what we can specify as first and second Remote Peer VPN.

  12. Add options for IPv6 DHCPv6-PD

    My ISP supports native IPv6, they support prefix delegation using DHCPv6-PD to assign a /56 subnet. They do not assign the WAN interface an IPv6 address (i.e. no IA-NA) and only provide a prefix delegation (IA-PD). Currently XG (and UTM9) doesn't work with my ISP to get a PD because there are no options to request IA-PD only. My ISP edge router will respond to a solicit message with a IA-NA and IA-PD request but it would appear that the XG doesn't conform to RFC7550 when it sends a IA-NA message and receives a "NoAddrsAvail" from my ISP edge router.

  13. Enable selectable SSL certificate for SMTPS scanning

    The Email Protection lacks ability to select a specific host certificate for an exposed SMTP server. Right now only CA certificate can be chosen and host certificate is dynamically created. SSL Certificate in Email Protection could be assigned the same way Web Certificate is in Web Protection.

  15. time of click protection

    For real protection from malicious emails, this is one of the best way to protect organization. This hasn't been in Sophos email appliance, UTM but I wonder if they will be adding it to XG. Without this, there is no easy way to compete with Fortinet/Proofpoint ... I won't even mention this is demanded by customers.

  16. Manual renew DHCP button on the Wan interface

    In UTM Wan interface there is a button for renew DHCP. There is not such button in the XG Wan interface.

  17. Email addresses should be case insensitive

    When viewing the various dashboards, email addresses should not be split into separate entries if someone used various case (all lower case, all upper case, some lower and some upper case).

  20. Export Configuration in a human-readable format

    At the moment export full configuration is easy with the new option but we need some way to export full configuration or part of it where the config. is full readable as it is possible with UTM.
    This can be used for Passive Analysis too.
