  1. Lockdown Scheduling

    We need to be able to define a schedule where the LockDown service can be enabled and disabled, in order to automate the process of patch updates. At the moment we are only able to disable the policy at a specific time

    • Sort by Not Locked Down.

      I would LOVE to see an option in the Show all servers drop down for "Lock Down Installed but not Locked" or something like that, because going through the list and resorting to re-engage all the servers it is installed is cumbersome.

          • Ability to throttle CPU on Linux agent

            We have seen an issue with on-access scans (not scheduled scans) where they make the CPU run hot and almost caused the server to crash. The issue was the CPU was already running slightly hot anyways due to the server being under a load at the time.

            It would be nice to have the ability to throttle the CPU utilization from the Sophos SV agent to avoid the scans running if the CPU utilization is above a certain threshold.

            Basically limit the agents priority so that when CPU is above X - scan can't run and has to wait until…

            • Option to disable InterceptX or stop updates from re-enabling hitmanpro services

              Since the inclusion of InterceptX in standard deployments of central server, regardless of licensing, we have had issues with the hitman pro alert services crashing or stalling business critical software. We can resolve this by disabling the service (which throws an error in Sophos Central) or I can run with tamper protection turned off, and run a script that removes the DLL associated with it everytime Sophos pushes an update. Neither is acceptable. I was informed that the reason InterceptX was included in Central Server was to save customers a reboot if they chose to license the product - but…

                • Add Notification to Sophos Central for server and firewall status

                  Add an email notification if a server or firewall is off line for more than a few minutes. This would allow for a quick response to a system or communication outage.

                  • Include the option to allow/force Sophos Central server client to delete file on linux

                    Rather than just flagging a file on a linux machine as 'infected' and denying access to it, it would be MUCH more helpful to provide option in Sophos Central to actually deal with a threat. This could include quarantine or delete. I'm pretty sure the client already has admin/root level access, or could be granted it, so this should be too hard.

                      • Servers to not auto-update even with new versions

                        We noticed that even though we have the servers to NOT auto-update but to update it manually when we want to, all systems still get security updates immediately to protect them against the latest threats. Which is good….BUT… When the product version expires, any server on that old version will be updated to the next version automatically.

                        This is an real example that we had where the current version will was to expire in Jan 2, 2019. The New version came out on December 11, 2018.

                        Sophos just released a version and giving us less than a month to upgrade…

                        • Pull in AWS Tags for EC2 instances

                          AWS Instances - Notes/Meta Data

                          Currently, our servers in AWS do not get human identifiable hostnames and probably never will. This is due to the volatile nature of AWS and microservices. It would be nice to be able to assign meta data to our servers or better yet, using the AWS Connection within Sophos, to pull the meta data (tags) off the EC2 instances and display them within the Sophos Central console.

                                    We are enforcing USB Storage device restrictions company-wide, including sites using virtual desktop terminals.
                                    For desktop endpoint we are able to allow specific users or endpoints access to their USBs, but at virtual desktop sites it's all-or-nothing. Per-user exclusions would allow us to grant access to a site's Managers only, without allowing all users at the site.

                                    • VM's protected by Security VM

                                      Can we have a dashboard or screen where we can see all VM's that are attached to the Sophos Security VM's instead of having to go to every single VM and see which VM's are registered? It's a tedious process to go through multiple Security VM's.

                                        It would be helpful when an own overview world map for the server can be created.

                                        • exclusion

                                          Need to add auto Exclusions for domain controllers and HyperV in the same way as Exchange and SQL are currently added.
                                          Also Microsoft requires that a default exclusion for all Windows machines be set for the Windows Update DB folder, Group Policy and Win Security folders. It isn't mentioned anywhere if the product excludes those folders on Windows machines as Microsoft request you to do.
