  1. Off-site Endpoint updates.

    Would love to see the computers have the ability to update Endpoint when they are outside of the companies network and to have the monitoring software record those updates. Many of our users travel and are gone from the office for long periods of time. The monitoring system list those computers as not being current.

  2. Proxy separato e amministratori separati

    Salve,ho dei suggerimenti da proprorre:
    fosse possibile impostare un proxy nei criteri specifici e non solo globali..
    avere un amministratore per ogni gruppo di dispositivi che riceva le email solo per quel gruppo...non di tutti

  4. Google Drive File Stream - Direct I/O Error

    Using Google Drive File Stream.

    SAVOnAccess reporting large number of errors constantly in the event logs and SAV.txt.

    Managed to stop the errors by excluding G: entirely.

    However, this is not a viable long term solution as this means a user *without* Google File Stream installed is vulnerable to an infected USB having G: drive assigned as a drive letter.

    As per Sophos support, this errors are for logging purposes only.(https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/119136)

    Those messages can be mis-leading so suggest to turn-off those messages in future release.

  5. MSP - Select Endpoint License

    We need more flexibility to choose more than one type of Endpoint product. For example, the possibility of choosing the 3 products at the same time
    Intercept X Advance EDR, Intercept X Advance, Endpoint Protection

    (Menu Select Endpoint License)

  6. Dashboard > Endpoint Computer Status

    It would be useful if, on the Dashboard, on the Endpoint Computer Activity status, to be able to click on a section of the chart to see which devices fall into any categories. For instance, mine currently stations that I have "6 Inactive 2+ Weeks". It'd be useful to click on a link to quickly see which stations those were.

  8. Whitelist default Microsoft directories in Sophos Central EndPoint Protection

    Hi there

    Other AV vendors whitelist all the default Microsoft directories that Microsoft recommend be excluded from AV scanning etc. It would be very time efficient and appropriate for Sophos to auto whitelist the standard Microsoft directories. Sophos do it for SQL Server and Exchange but not for Hyper V or domain controllers or standard desktop/laptop operating systems. Why is this?

    I spent three hours adding exclusions (via the add another button) and then when I had them all added I clicked save and Sophos Central logged me out and didn't save any - even though I had been working…

  9. alerts dashboard some services are not running

    seems like in July 2018 we stopped receiving and see alerts for missing services on devices.
    I do understand that's because there was a lot of false positive alerts but when services are not running that's mean the machine isn't protected for a specific threat.
    I think that we should have a notification center that we will be able to control what notification we would like to get will be amazing and will solve both problems for users that getting false positive and also will serve the users that would like to know when a service isn't running.
    the other…

  10. Seperate Proxy and Translator policy

    Webcontrol Policy: Separate Anonymizer Proxy from Translators

    We have to manually add Proxy sites top the webcontrol exclusions area. On Sophos SEC it is separate and proxy can be blocked in one go, without stopping translators.

  11. Pheripheral control for I/O devices, like cameras and mics.

    It would be nice to be able to control all peripheral devices, not just those that fall into a certain category. Specifically would like to control I/O devices like cameras, mics, keyboards, etc.

  12. Separate marijuana from Illegal Drugs (web control policy)

    As states have started to legalize marijuana, please break out sites related to marijuana into a new category instead of being in Illegal Drugs.

  13. Sophos Central Installed Version Report

    Allow the capability to export the current installed version of Sophos from any device. There should be an easy way to see the installed version of Sophos for any device from within the Central console. This export/report should be able to be applied or filtered to specific groups.

    Use Case: Sophos compatibility issues with certain Windows updates has caused various devices to hang during boot. Your organization declines that bad Windows update to avoid disruption. However, some servers may not have an updated Sophos client due to reboot schedules or other errors. You want to view the Sophos version for…

  17. Application Control Reporting

    As we are needing to report on applications that have been Whitelisted, there is no way at present to export the 500+ applications showing which are blocked or not.

    I believe there should be a way to export this list that shows this information for reporting/auditing purposes.
