  1. Losing my mind trying to delete and search for devices

    Searching for and subsequently deleting devices in this portal is painful at best. The search keeps returning no results once you delete a machine and want to search for another so you have to forcibly refresh the page. Administration is not proving to be much fun as a result. Grrr.

  2. Central Web Gateway alert or notify administrators of blocked/threats

    If using CWG, clients are looking for the ability to notify admins of pages that are blocked or categorised as a threat. This will help with the administration process and being aware of their environment/network.

  4. Web Gateway Reporting by Browse Time per user

    Currently there is no reporting available that shows how long a user has been browsing the internet, or particular websites, or categories. This was previously available with the Sophos Endpoint Protection Console.
    I have been running web usage reports for years at the request of management and this is by far the most common type of report that is requested. They are not concerned about data usage etc. Plese vote for this and help us all!

  5. Automated Web Browsing Reports

    I'd like to have automated reports sent to an end user based on web activity. This would be especially useful for blocked sites and policy violations. What would also be useful is a report on general web-browsing activity e.g. time spent online etc.

  6. Mis-categorized website

    This is the official Department of Motor Vehicles website and should have a sane default category.

    URL (www.dmv.org) blocked as part of category: Not Available

  7. ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR does not identify it's cause a Sophos web protection.

    Some pages are blocked by Sophos web protection due to SSL errors but there is no indication that Sophos is the cause of the blocking like when a page is directly blocked by the Sophos. It looks like a network error, or a google error or something else.
    ERRSSLPROTOCOL_ERROR

  8. Allow XG to offload reports to Sophos Central

    Allow XG to offload reports to Sophos Central for longer term report storage. This could also as as a way to provide busines executive and drill down report to school leadership as opposed to iView format reporting. IView reports are too technical for most for school leaders and behavior managerd to find what they want. It would be better to provider something more like Fastvue Sophos Reporter school leadership to review.

  10. Cloud Web Gateway Logging and Active Status

    In Sophos Central, when an Cloud Web Gateway Agent Logging & Privacy policy is set to "Threats Only", the agents begin showing up in the Dashboard as Inactive. When the Logging & Privacy is set back to "All", then the agents show up again as Active.

    There should be a way to reduce logging, while at the same time showing agents as active. I suggest a separate heartbeat thread or connection to register the agent as online, rather than using logging events.

  11. Web Gateway Reporting

    In the report view on the web gateway it would be great to be able to see how much data has been downloaded and upload from a particular domain and at a particular time. As right now we can see how much from a domain over time. And we are able to see how much total data a particular time. But it would be really helpful to be able to see how much data from a domain hour by hour.

  12. Web Gateway Computers

    The following UI enhancements would be great:

    Sort by column name
    Search by any column
    Export all as CSV
    Filter by existing values in each column
    Ditch the dymanic loading and use pagination (show 20, 50, 100, All, etc.)

  14. Website Management - Host Status Reporting

    Our Website Management screen has grown unmanageably large. So, I copy/pasted it into notepad where I stripped out some of the extra characters, and then from there into Excel, where I split it into columns, and then filtered by "Tagged As". For all those sites we assigned a tag for the purpose of blocking, I ran each through various tools to determine whether it is still alive or not. Those IPs/domains that are no longer alive, I deleted from the list in order to make it more manageable.

    It would be very nice if there were an indicator on screen…

  15. Set policies for specific executable files

    Please add the option to whitelist/blacklist specific executable files on a granular level, and not having to rely on the Sophos database. Organisations sometimes create their own applications, and having the ability to white list these executables is invaluable instead of the current blanket option of :Block,warn or allow.

  16. Policy Warnings Proceeded Count mismatch

    We were going through these figures for November and noticed that "10,492" warnings were issued and "15,413" proceeded.

    We have opened Support Ticket 7789151 which has been closed, as Support requested us to create a Feature Request.

  19. report

    When running the Events log report in the General Logs section and view which root URL a user has visited e.g. www.cnn.com, but we'd like to see the full URL e.g. www.cnn.com/news/arcitle1234.aspx.

    Is this possible to achieve?
