  1. Improved device list views

    Including the ability to add/remove columns and filter results.

    For example, add a column about tamper protection, and have the ability to filter for only devices with it disabled. Or to add a column about Intercept X software version and filter for certain version(s).

    This would apply to Endpoint and Server views.

    We intend to make this functionality available via APIs as well.

    The APIs are now available, please see https://developer.sophos.com/ for more details.

    For example, retrieving tamper protection status is available this way: https://developer.sophos.com/docs/endpoint-and-server/1/routes/endpoints/%7BendpointId%7D/tamper-protection/get

    I appreciate many people simply want the admin UI to offer the functionality rather than just APIs, and we will update it to allow column addition/removal and filtering on any column. However, this is likely to not be until around August as the development team have been reassigned to assist another project for a few months. Sorry for the wait, I would very much like this to be available earlier.

    I’ll leave this item open and “started” until the admin UI changes are released, but please do be aware of the API option in the meantime.

  2. Sophos Central Enterprise: Make Heartbeat works for all Sub-Estate central deployment

    Relate to this limitation:
    https://community.sophos.com/products/sophos-central/f/general/117661/heartbeat-with-sub-estate-central-deployment/425654#425654

    In a Sophos Central Enterpise deployment with sub-estate make endpoint Heartbeat connection with XG works for all the sub-estate.

  3. Display Windows device serial number (as per Mac devices)

    In Sophos Central under Devices, when you select a specific Mac PC, under Agent Summary it displays 'Serial Number XXXXXXXXXXXX'.

    This is very useful - please could we have this for Windows devices too?

  4. Allow nicknames for firewalls again

    You used to be able to rename firewalls in Sophos Central. That seems to have disappeared. Please return this feature. Trying to identify a firewall by IP address or serial is silly. We have DNS for a reason: people don't remember IP addresses.

  5. Computer Name

    Currently when we rename a computer, we have to re-register it with the console to get the name to update in the console, Can we get it added to the name is auto-refreshed (say daily) and will update in the console if the name on the computer itself changes. Many other antivirus software will.

  6. Controlled Updates

    Allow us to use predefined groups (Server Groups, Computer Groups) for Controlled Updates. This would be especially helpful for Servers. Because of our Change Management policies, I have to do updates to Non Prod first. Only after that change is completed successfully can I then do updates to Prod. There are several problems with the current system:
    1) I have to manually add each server into the Test computers section in Controlled Updates
    2) After performing a change, I need to remove all the Non Prod servers from the Test Computers section. Otherwise the next time there is a Sophos…

  7. FIM (File Integrity Monitoring) for sophos endpoints

    Hi all,

    We're wondering why there is no FIM (File Integrity Monitoring) functionality for endpoints but servers, only.

    There are also files or paths on endpoints where it would higher the security level a lot if you could assure the integrity of these files and paths.
    We have a specific scenario that I cannot cover with Sophos Endpoint Security because we cannot assure the integrity of certain files.
    To allow us central management of credentials of local administrator accounts on our windows client we use a well-known tool from MS called LAPS.
    LAPS uses a little application on the clients…

  8. Add User - Automatically Add Mailbox in Central Email

    When adding a new user manually, in the overview area for example, there should be an option (tick-box?) for adding him a mailbox within Central Email automatically.
    Of course then the "Email adress" field, in the wizard is mandatory.

  9. SNMP on XG-Firewalls

    Based on current generation from XG-Firewalls. Missed some SNMPv2 standard OID's for:
    ipAddrTable: 1.3.6.1.2.1.4.20
    ipRouteTable: 1.3.6.1.2.1.4.21

    Normally this values an standard all over the world on SNMP-Devices, still in Sophos-SG-generation. Generally it's needed by automated creation of routing-plans and more by software solutions.

    In the Moment the SNMP-Interface is nice, but not so usefull for production environment's. Secured OID's can be saved by implementing SNMPv3, but this alos not an available option on XG-firewall at the moment.

  10. Sophos Central SSO - Support ADFS

    Hello,

    I would like to have support for integrating Microsoft ADFS (SSO) with Sophos Central.
    Would allow easier management / provisioning of admin-users as well as allowing admins to login using their AD-credentials and that they don't need to have a separate Sophos Central account.

    Users who quit are disabled in the AD and their Sophos Central access will be cut as well instead of having to disabling them manually among other things.

    Best Regards -Karl, Sweden

  11. API

    as an Sophos System-Partner we work and customize with an Documentation-Software, called "Docusnap". Our ideas going to import some informations into the docu-solution for using in Recovery-, Rescue- and Restore-plans. But for devlop we need some defined WEB-API's. It would be nice and very helpfull having read only access on some details e.g. product summary, versions, installed on, last state and any more. What's your suggestions, any chance to implemente it next time?

  12. Need randomization schedule for Schedule Scans

    In a previous Antivirus product, we had the ability to turn on a 4 hour window where the system perform a randomized scan of a particular server.

    Currently, Sophos Central can not provide the ability to perform a randomized schedule. Please consider this. In our virtual environment, I have currently set up 7 policies to split my servers into. However, each server within the policy STILL will start its scan at the same time as others with the same policy.

    A randomization option is needed to spread the IOPS load on our SAN.

  14. Ability to Permanently dismiss alerts at top of Sophos window

    Can we please have the ability to permanently dismiss alerts up the top of the Sophos central window.

    Having to dismiss messages like "Server 2003 support has ended" and "your trial is expiring in X days/expired" is becoming very frustrating.

    Working from my laptop these alerts are taking 25% of my screen and i have to dismiss them every time I log in.

    How long are we going to be reminded about 2003 support being ended?

  15. Fix Outbound Spam Filtering

    Allow confirmed spam outbound to be quarantined and inbound to be deleted by having separate settings for inbound and outbound.
    Allow outbound filtering to be turned off.
    Or get better at recognizing confirmed spam. We have constant problems with false positives outbound. They're not even marketing emails. Last time they were legal documents for a court case, and Sophos decided it would delete them.

  16. Choose which events to receive via email (not only alerts)

    Alerts can be received via email. Sophos only sets these events as alerts, which are not automatically resolved by Sophos.

    But some events may be crucial, such as:
    - Someone tries again and again to open the same blocked websites
    - A Virus/Ransom Ware was blocked by Sophos

    For now you have to look into the Events Report in the Admin Center of every single customer to get these information,
    which is quite time-consuming, especially if you have a lot of customers.

    A Feature that allows you to choose by yourself, which events you want to receive via email, would…

  17. Azure Sync should filter for group membership

    Azure sync right now syncs the entire azure active directory. How is this usable for anyone? It gets service accounts. It gets a ton of guest users if you share documents externally from onedrive, or teams. People who dont even work at my company get synced to the sophos portal. With BYOD I would want automated emails to go out to new users so they can self service, but thats unusable with Azure Sync.

  18. Push agent via Update Cache / Message Relay

    Create the possibility to push an agent wihout having to download and install it. Probably could be realized by expanding update cache and/or message relay servers with agent push possibility.

  19. Uninstall Endpoint software from the console

    A button on the console to uninstall Endpoint protection would be extremely useful. No user disruption or spending time with a script, but a simple button per device.

  20. Separate licensing for Linux Endpoints

    Estate Licensing for Mixed Windows/Linux only makes "Cents" for Sophos, Does NOT make "Sense" for customers. Effectively Sophos and MSP's have to charge more for a product that gets no or limited additional features from the Standard protection. When selling to clients whom have both Linux and windows servers it is kind of hard tell them. Get advanced its great on your windows boxes. Oh, and you get to pay more for your Linux servers and get no extra benefit.

    Linux products really should have there own SKU. And be priced separately. I see some posts for Linux workstations to…
