  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. Cambios de permisos en carpetas compartidas

    Buenos días, estamos viendo que algunos permisos de carpetas se están cambiando por una cuenta que es creada por sophos cuando realiza alguna gestión. Ejemplo

    Firmante:
    Id. de seguridad: SYSTEM
    Nombre de cuenta: INSERSA1$
    Dominio de cuenta: INSERSA
    Id. de inicio de sesión: 0x3E7

    Objeto:
    Servidor del objeto: Security
    Tipo de objeto: File
    Nombre de objeto: C:\Windows\System32\query.exe
    Id. del identificador: 0x0
    Atributos de recurso: -

    Información de proceso:
    Id. de proceso: 0x7934
    Nombre de proceso: C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\Sophos Anti-Virus\SavService.exe

  18. Per-User policies for Server Protection

    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.

  19. 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.
