  3. 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

  4. Allow Renaming of Firewalls in Sophos Central

    Prior to a recent UI upgrade, one could rename a firewall in the "Firewall Management" section of Sophos Central simply by clicking on the ellipsis to the right side of the screen. Now for some god-only-knows reason you decided to remove that feature, and instead of seeing an easily recognizable firewall name, I can only see a cryptic serial number. Consequently, this now requires the use a separate table of serial-to-name mappings to help me understand which firewall I'm looking at in the list, making my job so much more difficult.

    For the love of everything holy, please bring back…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  14. 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.
