  1. View Configuration of Offline Firewall

    It would be great to be able to view the configuration of an offline firewall, in the same way that SCFM and SFM provided. When a firewall is offline, it is incredibly helpful to be able to view its last-known config during the troubleshooting process.

  2. Controll & Monitor Pattern Updates

    I am only able to run firmware updates on a managed XG. There is no option to install pattern updates (e.g. Access Points, REDs) on a specific date.

    For everything else that is auto-updated I would like to have an option to monitor failures and situations, where the device didn't find the latest patch. (I would like to have the logic inside of central. Central should compare the installed and available version of each pattern reported from a local device against the latest available version on the cloud.)

  4. Display Hostname on Tab or Menu

    When managing individual firewalls, please display the Hostname of the device currently being managed in the browser tab or title bar. Currently the tab displays "Sophos". This will help avoid confusion and costly mistakes when managing and configuring multiple devices.

    It would also be helpful to display the hostname next to the company name below the admin menu in the top-right corner of the each page.
