  1. Website Management UI Enhancement

    The Global Settings > Website Management interface would benefit greatly from a few features. Could you please add a column showing the notes added to each entry, so they can be viewed without needing to mouse hover each entry? Also, can the ability to sort by columns and filter by tags be added? This would greatly improve the usability.

    Thank you!

  2. Video Files Category

    We are a media company who regularly download video files such as .mov files, but these are categorized as "Other Executables" in Web Control and blocked. There should be either a "Video Files" category or allow files by extension type as we don't want to allow all "Other Executables".

  4. Improved Central Endpoint release notes

    The release notes located at https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support/endpoint-release-notes.aspx do not include every update made to the Sophos client. We sometimes receive emails stating "Sophos has released a product update" but determining which affected operating system is difficult since the current release notes page doesn't always show an update.

    Adding a page that is updated consistently every time an update is made available is a feature our organization would get value from.

  8. Add Computers to more than one group

    We need that computers can be added to several groups like user policies does, we have many of our computers with one policy about device encryption and we can´t add to more groups to apply other policy or simply to organize computers by physical locations.

  9. Create prerequisite for installation of Sophos Endpoint Agent in Sophos Central Admin Help

    According to the KBA27213, it is necessary to disable in Windows Server 2016 to avoid performance issue.
    It's better to do Windows update before installation.

    This kind of information should be addressed in Sophos Central Admin Help to prevent installation issue or any other issue beforehand.

  10. Remotely disable endpoint's tamper protection without physically disabling on endpoint

    If the admin and endpoint are in different locations, how can the endpoint's Sophos be disabled for the 4 hours troubleshooting without physically entering the tamper password on the endpoint?

    It would be much better if the remote administrator could login to Sophos Central and remotely disable the Endpoint's Sophos for a specific period of time without the need to physically logon the endpoint's Sophos.

    Otherwise the admin would need to disclose the tamper protection password to the person using the endpoint. Not a good idea. A new tamper password can be generated afterwards but that's not an efficient process.

  11. Capture information about data transfered via bluetooth and wifi.

    In DLP, add a feature to restrict users from transferring data via bluetooth and wifi .
    If allowed to transfer data via Bluetooth or wifi, data information should be captured

  12. Ability to use Multi line file/dir exclusion additions

    The way you have to manually add exclusions simply sucks and needs to looked at. Each item has to be added one by one!

  14. Detect and not block for new features (like Active Adversary Mitigations)

    Where new feature are added, like Active Adversary mitigations, over just turning them on and hoping for the best I would like to have a detect and not block option. I can run for 2-3 weeks, if there no issues raised we put it into block mode. This make things 1000% simpler and safer to rollout new feature for us.

  16. Trouble getting updates

    It seems that many of our users are having trouble with Sophos Endpoint not being able to get or apply updates. Some for days or weeks at a time. This seems to be leaving many under protected.

  17. Please fix Malware and PUA report

    The Malware and PUAs blocked Report does not filter events to malware and puas in any way, it just shows all events including successful update notifications. This is not useful.

  18. Enable the ability to add peripheral exemptions at the Enterprise level

    We are in the process of migrating from On-Prem to Central using an Enterprise structure for 55000+ endpoints.

    When creating Global Policy for sub-estate groupings there is no option to create a global peripheral exemption list.

    This means not only do I have to duplicate the exemptions across each policy within a sub-estate, but also all the other sub-estates that will require the same exemptions list.

    This is incredibly unproductive.

    With On-Prem a new addition to the exemptions list would be applied globally. Can this, at least, not be replicated for Central if the Enterprise level exemptions cannot be implemented?

  19. Select all Application

    In Application Control policy the default policy is empty and would like a "Select All Applications and Check All Apps Added by Sophos later" option. More of a Time saver
    I know there is. Partner ability to do templates but still would be nice.

  20. Web Filtering - Web(XG firewall) and Web Protection(Sophos Central)

    Now that we've started using Web Filtering through Sophos products, I'm finding quite a few things that I'd like to see addressed. I'll start with just a handful.


    1. Can we get Web Policies standardized across platforms? On the XG firewall we have one policy with different Web Categories and through Sophos Central we have another policy in Web Protection with different categories. Putting exceptions into both places for the same thing can be tricky and even those work completely different with Custom Categories in XG and Website Management in Central.


    2. XG firewall has a nice built-in URL category lookup. Can…
