  1. Update Cache setting gets removed after accidental server duplication

    Our Windows server designated as the Update Cache gets duplicated when we do our monthly Disaster Recovery (DR) tests. I then delete the duplicated machine. The remaining real machine, however, has then lost its Update Cache setting, and I have to reconfigure that.

  2. Add Active Directory integration in Server Protection

    I would like to see an integration with Active Directory groups in Server Protection. Just like the one in the Endpoint Protection section. As I would like to apply policies based on Active Directory groups that contain servers.

  3. Sophos for Virtual Environments on Citrix Xen Server

    Our environment is a combination of Microsoft HyperV and Citrix XenServer. I would love to see Sophos for Virtual Environments supported on Citrix Xen Server!

  4. Server Protection Download - Give option to choose components, exclude InterceptX

    The download for Endpoint protection gives the option to download complete installer or choose components (uncheck InterceptX). This option needs to be added to to the Server Protection download. InterceptX Hitman affects many of our business critical applications that run on servers and there is no way to disable or exclude hitman from hooking these processes. Dealing with support to get custom config files to exclude things for each server affected is not ideal... Either give the option to not install interceptX on servers or allow customers to exclude processes from being hooked by hitman in the central dashboard... or…

  5. Control updates

    While toggling between the thee options in controlled update date ,remove the resume auto update , because auto update resumes and then it causes bad health status for servers.

  6. Linux scan of remote nfs mount

    Ability to explicitly include a remote directory for scanning. Ideally be able to do this from the server end.

  7. Re-register device in central withoput reinstalling

    Why is there no simple way to add a device in to central without reinstalling Endpoint? It should be just a case of telling the Client to register. A full uninstall and reinstall is just ridiculous especially iif you have lost the tamper protect code.

  8. undelete re-register option

    Allow undelete of devices or add teh ability to re-register a device instead of having to do a full install again which is a bit overkill and not required.

  9. AWS and Azure Detailed Reporting

    It is great that we can add Azure and AWS accounts into Sophos.

    What we now need is the ability to be able to report on All AWS and Azure servers, export this out to CSV/PDF

    Examples would be:
    AWS/Azure servers that do not have Sophos
    AWS/Azure servers that have Sophos installed however pending a reboot.
    AWS/Azure servers that are active, Inactive (2 +Weeks, 2+ Months)
    AWS/Azure servers not protected
    AWS/Azure servers last updated

    In addition, all the other ways can can currently report on that is missing for AWS and Azure

  10. Web control

    In order to be able to secure Web access correctly on TSE servers, it would be more than necessary to have the same categories of filtering on the server side as on the endpoints

  11. trusted process/executable exceptions for exploit prevention

    A customer has software developed on site, each new version spawns a new set of exploit prevention thumbprints and the dev team has to call the admin to get new exclusions added which is extremely cumbersome.

    What we need is to add specific executables as exceptions for the exploit prevention. At the moment we have the exploit prevention modules all turned off on the development server which is not ideal.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
