  1. log support ticket

    Would be good if there was a 'log a support ticket' for Mobile. If you use the main 'log a ticket' option then it gets logged as a Endpoint AV ticket then it takes like a week to get a response and they tell me I logged it under the wrong product.

    Looks like yet another half baked option where no thought has been put into this by Sophos, like everything else to do with your half baked and broken MDM

    • Sophos Central scheduled reporting.

      Sophos Central should implement scheduled reporting like in Sophos Enterprise Console eg Daily, weekly Reports... instead of reactive reporting where it emails for an alert or detection.

      • Option to disable/change timeout time settings on Central Console

        Option to disable/change timeout time settings on Central Console.

        Issues:
        1. Central console automatically logs off currently logged in user (even if actively being used, not idle). This requires the user to re-log several times a day, and with the addition of 2FA this is quite a cumbersome process to have to repeat.

        2. For customers who are using monitoring systems, not having this functionality means that Sophos Central will not able to display its dashboard on a network operations center.

          • Import Export Exceptions to Policies

            There needs to be an import/export feature for exceptions, it's way too time consuming to enter exceptions one by one, especially when the competing AV software we are coming from has these features. This especially painful when after finally finished entering in all these exceptions the Sophos login times out for some reason, even though it should have stayed active since I was entering exceptions the entire time, then all my changes are lost and they have to be entered in all over again. This feature needs added and their needs to be indication that it is being worked on…

            • more ways to enter Tamper Protect code

              Tamper protect is a major pain when it stops working or goes wronky.
              We really need to be able to apply the tamper protect password seperately from the user interface as I have had several instances where the server install/update goes wrongthe server stops talking to central, and it is impossible to turn tamper protect off on the server direct, even if you have the code, as there is no where to input it because the admin access button is missing from the interface., which apparently means it is turned off even though it isn't.

              A seperate utillty to do…

              • Scanning Exclusions

                There needs to be a way to import and export exclusions, with over 90 customers in our Sophos central database, adding exclusions one at a time is terribly inefficient and time consuming. The same goes for removing exclusions removing them one by one and having to mouse click confirm is also awful. A better system needs to be implemented especially since this feature had been requested seven years ago in this Sophos thread https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/sophos-endpoint-software/2801/importing-exclusions-into-a-policy

                • Support MFA in active directory sync tool

                  It would be nice if you didn't have to disable MFA on the account the AD sync tool uses. The tool should be updated to accept MFA during setup and then be handled appropriately to avoid needing to re-authenticate during normal use.

                  • remote connection to an endpoint from central admin

                    The ability to make a remote connection to an endpoint that is in isolation (red) mode from central admin to be able to work on the client if the endpoint is not able to clean the threat making it isolated. Otherwise you need to drive out to the customer as we did back in the 90's.

                    • Office 365 API support

                      Please tool the email gateway to have the ability to login via the Office 365 API to pull a mailbox list. Right now we sync AD from our internal domain to Central. However this does not get all valid mailboxes in that we have a number of O365 groups and distribution lists that don't live in Active Directory. If the email gateway could simply pull the list of valid addresses from O365 like some competitor products it would save quite a bit of manual mailbox additions.

                      • Tamper Protection part of Policy

                        Make Tamper Protection part of a Policy.
                        Now it's a global option which is ridiculous. I don't want servers with tamper protection, only our end user laptops.

                        • Tamper Protection

                          1. Add a status column for Tamper Protection Enabled/Disabled in the Devices list.

                          2. Add a Enable/Disable Tamper Protection option to the Devices page. You would check as many boxes as necessary and then enable/disable tamper protection for them. This is necessary for mass reinstalls where Sophos is missing services or other.

                          3. Add a timed option for when Tamper Protection will automatically come back on. This could be a pop-up that shows after clicking disable which would then ask how many hours/days it should be disabled, or if it should be disable indefinitely. This will add administrative security as…

                          • Revamping of USB Scanning and Identification

                            Currently, if Malware or other malicious files are detected on a USB device, we are only presented with an alert stating it is there on a computer drive -- NOT what device the file is held on (only way to tell is if it is something other than the C:). I would like to formally request that when there is a detection, we have the ability to block the device from the alerts page.

                            In the current format, we are forced to search for the *possible* USB device in the exemptions list of the Peripheral Control policy, but that does…

                              - filter options in "Peripheral Exemptions"
                              - sorting options in "Peripheral Exemptions"
                              - sorting options in "Add Peripheral Exemptions"
                              - add filter type Computer to "Add Peripheral Exemptions"
                              - allow the user to resize the window, so that I can read the complete field
                              - allow to filter by time for a date and time range

                                  • Filter Out Closed Statuses for Threat Cases

                                    The new layout of Threat Cases is great! More in-depth analysis of the process of the detection is helpful. However, as my organization has over 5,000 endpoints, sorting these detections can be cumbersome with the current layout. While the statuses can be filtered, being able to show all items except closed would be a very helpful addition. Simply deleting them would lose their historical value for future troubleshooting and identifying statistics based on device targeting/user habits.

                                    • "Scan Now" improvements

                                      It is very useful to perform a "Scan Now" from the Central Dashboard but currently there is no way to monitor the status of the scan - this would be a good new feature. Also, currently you can click on "Scan Now" several times so it would be great if the colour changed to grey on "Scan Now" (and no action occurred if it was re-selected) and then the colour changes back to original blue when the scan has completed.

                                        Please provide a way to filter computers and laptops that have not been powered on or seen for over 1+ months, they generate general alerts that fill my Sophos dashboard and look terrible. Right now I have 167 general alerts and over 100 of them are because people have not powered on a laptop in over 1 month. When my boss, or any clients we have granted Sophos Central access to see these alerts, they assume the monitoring technician has done nothing about these alerts and we look really bad.

                                        • More granular control for permissions in Sophos Central

                                          Currently there are many actions that only super-admin can take, such as remove PCs and add/remove PCs to groups. There should be more options for admins to be able to do some super-admin actions, but not others such as editing policies. This way we can empower people to manage the rollout of Sophos and policies such as Full Disk Encryption, without being able to change/edit the policies.
