  1. Decrypting Devices

    It would be great if I can decrypt a laptop from the portal. Instead of going to the laptop and turning bit locker off manually to start the decryption.

  3. Sophos Encryption Does Not Work

    Sophos site is unintuitive and difficult to work with. From all I can see regarding the Encryption piece, it doesn't work either.

  4. device encryption file password protect option for Folders

    I really love the new File Password protection feature but surely it wasn't overlooked that the ability to password protect Folders would have been just as useful to have??

    So my Idea / request would be for Folder password protect to be added as well

  5. Limit Bitlocker PIN to en-us and no special characters

    It would be really nice to have an option to limit the characters that the user can use as PIN since the keyboard layout in bitlocker-window is en-us. Special characters are located elsewhere for all my Swedish users and some characters dont exist (like ÅÄÖ).

  6. Allow the USB Flash Drive as Startup authenticator

    Allow to change the Authenticator type to USB Flash Drive (UFD) from Central or Bitlocker Management.

    For PC and Notebooks without a TPM chip it's not possible to set the USB Flash Drive as Startup Authentication.

    Sophos Central Device Encryption Bitlocker Management Startup authentication.

  7. TPM and PIN Filter / Report

    It would be good to have a filter option (or report option) for different encryption states.
    For example; it would be great to know exactly what devices are encrypted via "TPM and PIN" or just by "TPM Only"

  8. YubiKey Support

    I suggest building support for Sophos encryption to work with a YubiKey for 2FA Windows logon. The company I work for uses YubiKeys for admin accounts and will likely use them for all logons in the near future. Without the support, the company may drop Sophos. Everything is moving towards 2FA and I don't think that a lot of companies are willing to make employees use their phones for push notifications or authentication applications. YubiKeys fix that problem and are not currently supported by Sophos.

  9. Manage encrypted external devices (e.g. UFD)

    It would be brilliant if the Encryption offering through Sophos Cloud were able to encrypt portable devices e.g. USB flash drives, and allow management of such devices (e.g. password policy, password recovery, etc.).

  11. encryption

    The agent for the device encryption installs numerous other pieces, 12 total Sophos related processes on the latest PC I installed it on. That seems excessive and uses system resources. I have no interest in Sophos File Scanner, or Sophos Clean or Sophos Endpoint Defense Software. Just manage Bitlocker and report in, pretty basic functionality.

  12. encryption

    Add option to allow device or software based encyrption - yes this can be achived by GPO, but this would cover machines not on an AD domain or ones which may be disconnected from the domain for considerable time (i.e. those that would really be benifit from encyrption).

    Also it would be useful in reporting encryption status to highlight machine using hardware encryption SSDs which are known to be flawed (reporting the encyption type is mentioned in several other suggestions) to help with compliance.

  13. Windows Lockscreen Configuration

    Hi,
    User reported that Windows Spotlight / lockscreen image change is not working after Sophos installation.
    As we gone through below KB article, it seems lock screen and spot light images are managed by Sophos Safeguard (the credential provider).

    We confirmed that after sophos installation it’s happening to all laptops. PFA snapshots and mails FYKR.
    Raised a case with Sophos (Case ID # 8378537), and the said it’s not possible. “There is no official way to change the lockscreen on a machine protected by SafeGuard Enterprise, this is by design.”
    Our issue is spot light images are not changing automatically,…

  14. Pre-boot Active Directory authentication

    Having Pre-Boot AD authentication would be exactly what we need.
    It has many advantages especially towards ease of use for users.

  15. Email Recovery Key

    A nice feature might be the capability to email a user their recovery key direct from the management console.

  16. Need to add a new feature to Sophos AP

    Need to add a new feature to Sophos AP - if some ones mac id is not entered in the Mac Host the person wont be able to connect to AP. By this way we can prevent a person entering in firewall and block him to access intranet features. As i have observed in other AP's such as RUCKUS - it has this feature in it.

  17. Forcing encryption on macOS

    When the Sophos agent on Mac OS tries to enable encryption an end user has the ability to postpone. As this postpone button has no end date or deferral a user can put off encryption indefinitely.

    Please enable an end date for encryption to be forced or a deferral limit.

  18. Allow encryption to be resumed from Sophos Central console.

    With Sophos Central, I sometimes get notifications that Encryption has been "suspended". It would be very helpful to give administrators the option to re-enable encryption from the console. We should not need to go to the machine itself to re-enable.

  19. Check Mac Encryption Status More Frequently

    One issue we have in our organization with Sophos Central Encryption is that there isn't a way for us to have the Macs encrypted until after the user logs in and enters their password in the prompt. Many users are postponing the prompt, and then we need to reach out to the user to enter their password and not keep postponing it. The issue is that when a user does postpone it, it only comes back about once a day or if they reboot the computer. It would be nice to have this pop-up every hour so it essentially keeps…

  20. Barcode Scanning of Recovery Key

    When displaying an encryption recovery key, it would be useful to have a barcode displayed that we can use instead of typing the code manually. This would allow us to plug a barcode scanner into the target computer and just scan the code.

    This is used in Cauliflower Vest https://github.com/google/cauliflowervest
