  1. 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.

  3. Add AWS Instance IDs to Server Report

    Please add an option to export a list of AWS Instance IDs.
    The Export to CSV option from Server Protection - Server Report does NOT include instance IDs.

    You could add an Export to CSV option on the following page:
    Server Protection - AWS Workload Security (AWS Instances tab)
    Or you could simply add an Instance ID field to the existing Server Protection - Server Report.

    The reason this becomes important is that duplicate server names can occur, despite following this document:

  4. Unzufrieden

    Ich möchte an meinen Servern und Clients selbst wählen können, welchen Update Cache er verwenden soll und ob der einzelne Host nicht doch direkt Updates aus dem Internet beziehen darf.
    Die Sophos Central ist einfach noch nicht ausgereift, besser wieder zurück zu Sophos Enterprise Console ohne Intercept X.

  5. Unzufrieden

    Updates der Clients und Server meinst nicht ohne Fehler möglich.
    Das Aktualisieren der Sophos Security VM funktioniert nicht, dadurch 4 Monate nicht aktualisiert. Finde Sophos Central seit der Umstellung nicht so gut wie der gute alte Sophos Administration Console. Habe es nur wegen des Intercept X erweitert/umgestellt. Ich kenne den genauen Status der PC und Server nicht mehr, da sie sich von der Maschine zur Central unterscheiden.

  7. unassign from Caching server

    Allow servers to be unassigned from the Update Cache Server. We have AWS servers that we would rather update from Sophos. Since they are already in the cloud it makes since that they would just update from Sophos.

  8. Support for tagging servers/groups in server protection

    Just having tagging as an option, and being able to configure them during installation or via the API/and or GUI after is essential for our organization. We have multiple clients, multiple accounts, multiple environments which makes deployment, and reporting difficult without tags

  9. Filter by 'Not Locked Down'

    When viewing the list of servers in Sophos Central it is possible to filter by 'Locked Down' servers , but not 'Not Locked Down' servers. Being able to quickly see unlocked servers would be hugely beneficial to us as all our servers are locked down until they require maintenance. Occasionally someone may forget to lock it down again and currently it's time consuming to check every server.

    Can you add this filter please?

  12. Allow for scheduled scans to scan only newly created files or modified files.

    In working with previous antivirus companies their scheduled scans have had options to scan newly created files or files that had been modified since the last scans. We have servers that take over 24 hours to scan during our weekly windows and it would allow for those times to tighten up if it is scanning only files that have been created and changed and not what is already verified to be clean.

  13. Server Version Information

    It would be really good to be able to see a list of what versions are installed on which servers.
    It would also be good if I could find a list of server version components I should have installed on my servers.

  14. Hide tray icon on terminal servers - Server Protection Advanced

    Please give us an option in the policy to disable the tray icon or the tray icon information balloons. If an event is triggered on terminal servers, every logged in user on this terminal server sees a balloon with the triggered event and the issuing user account. This can be very embarrasing to the user.

  16. Sorting in Server Protection

    In Sophos Cloud -> Server Protection -> Servers page, It would be good if you could Sort the servers by IP and Group as well. Not just the server name.

  18. Sophos for Virtual Environments

    It would be helpful to see the guest vms in Central rather then the Scan appiiances in Sophos Central when using Sophos for Virtual Environments. Individua Rules and policies should also be appliable to the guest vms.
