  1. 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

  3. Dynamic DNS - Create own providers like possible with SMS Gateways

    Create own providers under Dynamic DNS like it's done under SMS Gateways like to update IPv6 Tunnel endpoints when the WAN IP changes or third party DynDNS Services.

  4. 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)

  6. Drop Zones

    Drop the whole concept of Zones in the access policies. They are redundant when the polices already state the networks and the interfaces.

    That is to say, a Zone means nothing when you already have to define the source network an the interface it arrives on.

  7. Add OpenDNS DynDNS Provider

    Just migrated from UTM to XG. It's fantastic. One small thing, please bring back support for OpenDNS dynamic DNS. Please, please.

  8. Assigning static ip to SSL VPN users

    It would be very convenient to assign static ip to users logging in through SSL VPN client. Currently this feature is available only to L2TP and PPP users.

  9. Mobile network agent: Only attempt auth to known SSIDs

    Tried network agent to authenticate users and it is a very nice feature.

    Once installed, you connect with mobile to user portal, download certificate and import inside the APP.
    However I would suggest to add an option inside the APP that allow the APP to work only when the mobile is connected using a specific SSID Wi-Fi connection. At the moment, the only integrated option are:

    Save Password

    Auto Login

    This ensure that user do not need to open the APP when they are back to work and save battery.

  10. XG as NTP Server

    NTP Server is a small package and UTM9 has it. In some small organization, having a central NTP server is a nice feature.
    Can you add it into future release?

    You can put it inside device access, denying WAN from using NTP server for security reason.

  11. Force delete object

    At the moment, if you try to remove a object used somewhere (Policy Rule for example) a message appears saying that "the object is already in use." So give us where the object is in use and allow Admins to delete it.
    You can add an extra column with number of times the object has been used and give LINK where the object is used so we can go directly to the place and check if can delete it or not.

  12. Allow Configuration of DHCP Options

    UTM 9 had great DHCP options that you could assing globally or to an individual pool. For people with VoIP deployments this is Huge.

  13. WAF: more authentication type

    At the moment there are different type of authentication missing even on UTM9 against ISA server 2006, such as:


    1. Two-factor authentication using forms-based authentication and a client certificate.

    2. Delegation of credentials by using NTLM or Kerberos authentication.

    3. Kerberos constrained delegation.

    4. Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) client certificate constraints

    In this way, XG and UTM9 are the very alternative to ISA Server.

  14. Integrate Alarm output into RMM tools

    With the new XG firewall with the heartbeat function. Nearly all IT reseller/Partners use RMM tools, these alarms need to be integrated into these tools. (Connect wise, kasya, etc).

    Adding a connector into these tools will do the following:-

    Integrate automatic Ticket generation for alarms and alerts from the Sophos XG platform into the IT billing and Ticket system.
    
    Stop IT companies having to go and manage multiple web pages and different sites to generate Tickets of work.
    Be a powerful difference between Sophos and other Firewalls sold.
    This should not be very hard to integrate into the Partner Web

  16. Bring RED Tunnels to UTM's and also to Sophos XG

    I would love to be able to create RED tunnels to other Sophos Firewall XG devices aswell as Sophos UTM's.

    This was a big disappointment to myself who used RED tunnels between UTM's

  17. Improve Signature Policy GUI (IPS/AppCtrl)

    In the moment it is a mess to select IPS Signatures and Applications in the
    GUI, which additionally doesn't fit in the browser window very well.
    Did i mention the (small) scroll bar on the right?

    Please adjust the IPS and AppCtrl GUI according to best practices.

  18. Create and Manage Multiple ehlo

    As Enterprise product, XG should be able to manage multiple ehlo to protect multiple email domain behind it. On UTM9 we have profile mode but multiple ehlo was missing too. Add some sort of profile (including ehlo) for multiple domai for one/multiple public IP, such as WAF does with virtual domain.

  19. Improve the WAN Gateway monitor

    Improve the WAN Gateway monitor. Add Latency thresholds, Packet Loss thresholds.
    This can help much to prevent false positive gateway status.
    The same feature could be added on VPN Failover system
