  1. Centrally Change Admin Passwords

    With the recently disclosed firmware vulnerabilities requiring us to change the admin password on every appliance (twice in the last few months!), it would be extremely helpful to be able to select each firewall from the list, click a "reset admin password" link, and set the new password from Sophos Central. While we only have a small deployment of about 30 devices, it still takes a significant investment in time to remote into each device to change the password, apply firmware updates, etc. Central Administration should allow us to do simple tasks such as this without requiring us to log…

  3. Sophos XG Cluster

    it would be important so be able to identify (and modify) a XG-Cluster and its state in Central.
    Actually a cluster-member is marked as not available, which, in fact, is not quite the correct system state of a A-P-Cluster Member (for the backup-device)

    We are working on improvements to support of HA firewalls, and will release this in two stages. Stage one will be available in a amatter of days, allowing both members of an HA pair to be registered to Central, and placed in the same management group.

    Phase 2 will follow in a matter of months, and will make joining both devices to Central easier, and will show members of an HA pair as a single logical device in Central, reflecting the HA state, current primary device, etc..

  4. VPN connections indicators

    When customer has a lot of users working remotely via VPN to the XG it'd be nice to have some report indicating for a chosen period of time, the time of 1st connection started, time of last connection ended and total amount of time conected. When remote access is the only way to work this can serve as a kind of audit of working time for some professional profiles. So far I guess reports include amount of times and number of times. Log can show active connections and starting time of the active connections. This is complementary info
