  2. Domain Controller Automatic exclusions

    Sophos,

    Can you please allow for recommended exclusions for domain controllers to be configured automatically, similar to how Sophos configures exclusions for SQL and Exchange.

    Thank you

  5. Using AD Groups for Computer policy assignment

    Although AD Groups are synchronised with AD, AD Groups cannot be used to assign Policies to computers (based upon Computer membership).

    Our customer reports "I would prefer these to be AD groups so if we create a server we add it to an AD group instead of having to manually add it to a group via the cloud console. Much more streamlined. We should not need to work in the cloud console on a daily basis once it is all configured and running. Should be able to apply this type thing via our local AD security groups."

    The same should…

  6. Schedule server reboot

    Have Sophos Central manage clients and devices, it'd be helpful if I could schedule a server reboot.

  7. Reporting on SVE protected VMs

    Improve SVE reporting, we can't easily see from the Server Protection area a list of VMs that are protected and their status, you have to drill down into each area, in addition the VM status isn't listed. It would be great if each VM protected by SVE simply appeared in the list of servers with its status like the full client servers.
    We also have no visibility of machines that are not protected within vSphere without manually comparing a server list from vSphere with the contents of each SVE entity within the Server Protection area.

  8. Allow the ability to stagger scheduled scans through global settings or policies for all VMs through Sophos Central

    We currently are using Server Groups to apply policies. We would like to stagger the scans for each host/VM that are defined in the Server Group. Right now we see that at the scheduled time the scans start like they should...but we have hundreds of VMs defined in each of our Server Groups. When all servers start the scan at the same time, we see spikes in CPU on each ESXi host as well as huge spikes on our SAN. We would like to be able to at least configure batch sizes or times that a group of VMs will…

  9. Appying server groups to each server is tedious

    When adding 200 servers to the Sophos Cloud console, it is very very very very tedious having to go in to each server, update the policy group I want applie, wait for it, come out, then do all over again.

  10. Search box needs enhancing

    When using the search in server protection (or PC protection) it would be good if it search any string within the server name and not just the first characters. IE our naming convention is xxxMSGxxx for eaxchange servers. The first *** is the Jurisdiction. If we could search for *msg* it would return all MSG servers

  11. Use Server License for a Windows 7 box

    it would be great if we could install a server license on a windows 7 box. I currently have applications that were written to only run on windows 7 and we have created a few windows 7 "servers" but cannot use a server license so it is not allowing me to fully utilize my licenses that were purchased

  12. Tamper Protection won't toggle off after Sophos updates.

    It would be nice if run the latest Sophos installer package and it could ignore tamper protection. I have several systems that TP won't stay disabled and so I can't update Sophos without rebuilding each endpoint/server.

  13. Search for protected VMs

    Allow the ability to search for VMs that are protected by SSVMs. As in you can look up the specific VM name and it will show you what SSVM it's connected to.

  14. Allow cumulative policies

    Please allow the use of cumulative policies.

    We have several server policies for various servers. Rather than having to update all of the policies for an additional task, it is possible to create an additional policy for a Role (i.e. IIS) rather than having to revisit all existing policies and keep them repetitively updated?

  15. Solid Edge

    There are Problems installing Solid Edge 10 (https://www.solidedge.de/solid-edge-st10) with Sentinel HL Driver (https://sentinel.gemalto.de/Support_and_Downloads/Download_Drivers/Sentinel_Treiber/).
    We had to completely uninstall Sophos Server protection, to get the installation of the license manager from Solid Edge 10 running.

    Hello,
    Please can you log a support case here; https://www.sophos.com/en-us/support.aspx

    We need to understand the root cause before we can comment on how we might address this. For example, our enhanced tamper protection might have been preventing the installation, or our Lockdown product.

    Once we have your log files and a support case we can determine if this requires a product enhancement or not.

  16. Automate PUA clean up for same detection.

    Hi,
    I have an idea and suggestion regarding Server protection PUA clean up in Sophos central. PUA clean up is sometimes manually and admin needs to log in to Sophos central and clean the list even for the same malware or virus detection.

    It better to automate Sophos central remember and learn my action which I choose for PUA clean up? For example Sophos detect "X" malware and I choose clean up PUA, it save and remember my clean up action for the next time "X" detected by Sophos.

  17. SVM load load balancing

    Sophos for Virtual environments needs some work. While I appreciate the scanning improvements in the new software over the previous one, the old system had a better communication system between the SVM and the GVM. Hard coding the IP address to a specific SVM seems like a step backward. It would be better if there was a load balancing/clustering mechanism or if the SVM could scan all GVMs on the host it resides on even if the GVMs are migrated between hosts as with DRS.

  18. Reporting incorrect status when health service not installed

    Reporting of server status is incorrect. When you look at a server it reports all is well (green tick), however when you look at the status of that server it will show no services installed, surely this should alert that the server is not reporting any health? Further investigation reveals that the health service is not installed on the server so the console needs to show that if nothing is being reported then the server needs to alert there is an issue.

  20. AD Sync - Remove Computers No Longer in AD

    We have a ton of old computers listed that have been retired & removed from AD, but are still listed in sophos. It would be nice if AD sync had an option to automatically clear these up.

    If it's not in AD and it's not reporting as online (For 2 weeks) -> Purge.
