  2. Updates to Central Console

    On the Dashboard summary screen, under Endpoint summary, make the text below Hyperlinks to a page with "Active" or to page with "Inactive" or a page with the "Not Protected.

    Also under Enpoint Pretection screen when looking at the summary of a workstation, it would be usefull to list the last reboot date.

  3. Email Notification Customization

    Hello,

    I would like to propose the idea of customizable email notifications.
    Currently as it stands, Sophos Central will only send 1 email alert per type (if it hasn't been cleared from the affected device) per 24 hours.

    For example..

    Let's assume for this example that Sophos Central failed to remove the virus in question..

    Computer A gets a virus, email alert comes in with affected device and the cause.
    Computer B also gets this virus, no alert comes in as an alert for this virus has already been sent within 24 hours.
    If we clear computer A's virus, and…

  5. Delete "Manual cleanup required" files.

    Manual cleanup required

    REQUIRES a way to DELETE from the portal.
    Even if it has to FORCE CLOSE applications to do it.

  6. Default Detection Actions, and Deleting Threats

    When a PUA is detected:
    There are only two options.
    Authorize or Resolve.

    We would like to have a Delete option, or at least, move to Quarantine (rather than just Block).

    Or, probably more importantly, be able to specify DEFAULT actions for detection.

    For Example:
    PUA Detected > On Detection > Move To Quarantine.

    It should be a basic feature, being able to decide how your Anti Malware responds to a detected threat globally.

    Right now, having to action every detection is a painful process.

    If an infection can't be 'healed', we should have the option to force delete, globally,…

  7. Wildcard selection of endpoints

    Hi Guys,

    I'd like to wildcard selections. My machines are named with this mind, all US region endpoints are of the form m-03. PCs are mp-03 Macs are ma-03. Please can this be added to the global computer view and as a filter when creating computer groups.

    Thanks

  8. ML PUA Detection „K und M“ – Konsulats- und Mustervorschriften / Hetkamp Varial Software

    Hallo Sophos Team, seit diesem Jahr erkennt Sophos Central unbedenkliche Software wie „K und M“ – Konsulats- und Mustervorschriften (http://www.mendel-verlag.de/***/) oder Varial Software (https://www.hetkamp-edv.de/unternehmen/partner/varial-software) als ML PUA an. Hier scheinen die Schutzalgorithmen als zu "scharf" eingestellt zu sein. Könnten Sie bitte den Fall intern oder ggf. mit den Herstellern prüfen. Vielen Dank im Voraus.

  10. Trigger scan on multiple devices

    It would be really helpful to be able to go through out list of devices, check either all or a selection of our choice, and trigger a scan on that entire set of devices. Currently, having to do it one device at a time is extremely time consuming.

  11. When adding exclusions from detected events the screen that displays needs to have way more info, such as the time and date of the occurence

    When adding exclusions from detected events the screen that displays needs to have way more info, such as the time and date of the occurence, also the username should be displayed in the list oif exclusions to differentiate them from all the others byt he same event name. A search box for the detected events would be great too, the info in it is sorely lacking.

  12. Release date schedule and/or warning email for version updates for Sophos Central managed products

    It would be very helpful to receive an email alert and/or have a place to check for upcoming Core Agent, Endpoint Advanced, etc. updates, both so we can remind our users not to panic when they receive notifications saying Sophos services have been stopped/uninstalled and to restart when necessary, and so we can ensure we are best prepared to deal with any potential issues that might arise during the updating process. The more specific window we can be given, the better, even if we only find out a day (or even a few hours) before it actually happens. An email…

  13. Block installs and prompt for Admin credentials. Notify on dashboard of software trying to install.

    Block all installs and prompt with admin credentials.... Currently your system blocks known applications... We need the opposite as we cannot control Windows UAC, so we disable it but that leaves the workstation open. Notify on dashboard of software trying to install.

  14. Add computers to group in mass

    After installing a few hundred computers, it would be very beneficial to add the computers to a computer group in mass instead of one at a time. I'm not sure why this isn't already an option, but it is something that is really needed.

  15. Addition button to do bulk "update" actions on computers

    In Sophos Central, when you are viewing the list of computers (for example, filtered to show all computers with a bad status) you get two buttons. They are "Manage Endpoint Software" and "Delete". It would be useful to have an additional button that does an "Update", similar to what was available in the on-prem product for bulk forced updates. It's a useful first step for clearing errors.

  16. remote files

    In Sophos Endpoint managed by enterprise console, there is an option to specify that scheduled scans will not include remote files. In Sophos Central it appears that no such option exists, and exclusions need to be configured manually. An option to exclude all remote files from a scheduled scan would give parity with on-premise management

  17. Either give us custom reporting, or give us raw data

    The reporting now is kind of ****. Have to run multiple reports, then csv them, then merge them into a spreadsheet to get anything like useful data. I'd rather have the raw data I can run a Crystal Report on, but would accept properly customizeable reports.

  18. Complicado gestion con mas de 100 usuarios

    Estimados de Sophos,
    Para empresas con mas de 100 usuarios es imposible gestionarse. Tenemos un cliente con mas de 20 mil usuarios, es impensable poder gestionar tanta cantidad sin alguna categoria o agrupamiento
