  1. Delegated Adminkonto für Partner

    Wir vermissen die Möglichkeit, unsere Sophos Central Kunden über eine "delegated Admin" Verknüpfung diekt aus dem Partner Dashboard zu verwalten. Es wäre für die Partner-Admins eine Erleichterung, wenn man direkt aus dem Partner-Portal in das Backend des Kudenkontos gelangen könnte.

  2. intuitiveness might need revisiting

    Resetting a password should be the simplest thing in the world to do. I have been trying to figure out how for 15 minutes. Including reading a very long page listing no less than 10 different procedures for doing the same thing depending on your setup. Give your stuff to people who've never used it before. If they can't figure out even the basics then it isn't intuitive and probably should be redesigned. end feedback.

  3. Support Issue

    Its very hard to get Sophos support. After opening the ticket I use to get the reply mail after 3 to 4 hours and get the solutions after 2 or 3 days.

  5. Emergency Signature Updates

    A customer requires a feature or a process for forcing Signature Updates, on Demand.

    They want the ability to push out updates to all machines via a possible "Update Now" option from within Central Admin, wether it be from Enterprise Dashbaord or the Sub-Estate level.

  6. Whitelist screen sharing/mirroring USB products

    We use the Peripheral Control to block USB storage devices on our computers. This works great but we are facing an issue with some of our users who regularly visit customer offices and have to run a presentation.

    To do so, most offices have some kind of USB dongles to remotely share/mirror the laptop screen on to the projector (products like Barco ClickShare or Kramer VIA Pad). These dongles also have a small storage partition in order for the laptop to be able to run a small program that will detect the USB dongle and allow it to connect to…

  9. Easier PUA Whitelisting

    Easier PUA Whitelisting

    We need to know quickly what programs Sophos is blocking so that we don’t waste time trouble shootings problems caused by Sophos.

    A screen listing all PUA’s being blocked that are installed on any computer on our network with Block and Allow checkboxes would be nice with current state checked - user can change by checking other box.

    Also, the current white list interface for PUA’s on Sophos Central should also have a dropdown list all PUA’s being blocked that are installed on any computer on our network.

  11. Server Reboot Report

    There currently is no report which shows which servers need a reboot.
    If certain features arent available until after a reboot, this report is necessary to ensure full functionality of the product.

  12. Add "Shutdown after scheduled scan" on machine by machine basis

    Many of our clients choose to run a full scan shortly after close of play on each of their PCs/Macs. They often ask us if there is a way that Sophos can automatically shutdown their device upon the conclusion of the scan. They obviously don't want this on servers.

  13. Easy Enpoint options for removal of PUA's

    There needs to be a way to allow for removal of PUA's via the Sophos Endpoint Agent console.

    The issue I have found is the vast majority of PUA's sophos has detected in my environment are harmless. When detected Sophos then puts a lock on the PUA file. I then am unalbe to remove the PUA from the endpoint without turning off real time scanning or booting into Safe mode and manually deleting the file. It seems like only occasionally does selecting remove from the Central Admin Console actually remove the PUA.

    Why not have an right click option or…

  16. User interface and notifications

    Hello,
    Can you pop up a notification ever 5 minutes or so on client's computer when Sophos updates has been installed and need to restart the computer?
    Also, notify client computer if update failed and need administrator's attention?

    Thanks.

  17. Remove Google Analytics from Sophos Central

    Remove Google Analytics tracking from Sophos Central after users / admins have been logged in.

    I don't understand why this is required, and it's been raised as a risk.

  19. Better use of Computer Groups

    I have a need for different levels of protection and reporting. I have a certain group of computers that need to be monitored more closely for PUA's for example. Applications we allow for most may not be allowed for this group. I also need Sophos to report if ONLY those computers have password protected files.

  20. Per Application Behaviour

    Currently, you can either monitor applications, or block them. It would be helpful to be able to block some and monitor other applications for any given user.
