  1. Manage individual firewall configuration directly in Central

    I would like to manage individual firewall configuration directly in Central, so I can fully configure a device before it has even been deployed, and so that group management can be improved with smarter dynamic objects, and to more easily share configuration already made on one firewall, with other firewalls, and more easily swap in an RMA replacement firewall.

  2. Integrate firewall licensing into Sophos Central

    I would like to have just one portal to manage my firewalls and their licenses. Integrating firewall licensing into Sophos Central, would also simplify account management, and license visibility among all of my administrators.

  3. Use AD users and groups from Central account in group firewall policies

    I want to be able to create user-based policies for my firewall groups, using the AD users and groups that Central already knows about.

  4. Lock objects and policies on XG created by firewall management

    I would like to restrict changes to objects and policies created from a firewall group, to protect them from local conflicts or accidental overrides. Objects and polices should be view-able but not editable when logged into the firewall locally, and it should be possible to pin firewall and NAT rules to the top or bottom, to better preserve the rule order.

  7. Scheduled firmware updates

    When firmware updates are available for my firewalls, I would like to be able to schedule when they will be installed -either one firewall at a time, or for a group of firewalls.

  9. Partner Dashboard support

    As a Sophos partner, I would like to create firewall groups that can apply to more than one of my managed customers at a time. I would like to use the Global policies feature available for other Sophos products, to similarly push firewall settings to multiple customers at a time.
