  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.

  2. Disable Tamper Protection For A Selection Of Clients

    Allow admins to disable TP on a collection or group of PCs, rather than globally disabling TP or going into each device, one by one.

  3. Customized Browser based alerts

    Please, allow to set custom messages for the warning or blocking of file downloads or URL's as regulated in Web Control for Sophos Central customers? Similar to what the XG firewalls are allowing.

    Thank you

    Good Morning! A client of ours requires the possibility to put the computers in groups created in Sophos Central through a deployment, as is done for windows: --devicegroup = <Central group> https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us / 127045

    For example: (Command)

    Installer.app --devicegroup = MAC (or LINUX.)

  7. MAC Address

    Would like to see the MAC Address listed on the Devices tab as well as to be able to export to a CSV file. This would be extremely helpful to those of us managing networks of 4000+ devices. I believe this information must be captured in the Sophos servers so I can't imagine it would be that hard to include in the Device information.

  8. "Packaged" Endpoint Installer

    Desperately need you to bring back the full offline installer. Deploying the install amongst multiple endpoints is not feasible with our bandwidth.

  10. Suggestions for improvement for Peripheral control policy

    Suggestions for improvement for Peripheral control policy:
    - option to export the "Peripheral Exemptions" list to csv
    - 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

  11. Settings for threat cases

    We would like to have settings for the creation off threat cases.

    For example you can turn off the automatic creation of threat cases for blocked websites or sites with maleware.
    The Websites gets blocked anyway and me as an administrator don't need a threat case for this.

    The only current way is to deactivate the complete detection for malicios websites to stop the creation of threat cases for websites and this is not recommended by a sophos stuff.

    "https://community.sophos.com/products/sophos-central/f/sophos-central/114038/settings-for-threat-cases&quot;

    Thank you for everyone who gives a votes for this. Lets make Sophos Central even better.

  12. Sophos Central Installed Version Report

    Allow the capability to export the current installed version of Sophos from any device. There should be an easy way to see the installed version of Sophos for any device from within the Central console. This export/report should be able to be applied or filtered to specific groups.

    Use Case: Sophos compatibility issues with certain Windows updates has caused various devices to hang during boot. Your organization declines that bad Windows update to avoid disruption. However, some servers may not have an updated Sophos client due to reboot schedules or other errors. You want to view the Sophos version for…

  14. Add version informatino to Controlled Updates screen

    Please add the version number(s) of the software that are included with the Software releases being managed in the controlled updates screen. It's nearly impossible to identify what a "release date" equates to in regards to the version number(s) of the software being deployed. Thank you.

  16. More options besides automatic cleanup

    Upon virus detection, could we have more options(quarantine, rename detection and/or move to a specific location) instead of automatically cleanup?

    Some infected word/excel documents are corrupted/deleted after automatic cleanup which is causing a lot of issue to the enduser.

  17. Alert user reboot required after software update is pending

    I can see a lot of computers have "Reboot required after software update" alert in the Sophos Central. However, users never get any notifications about the required restart.

    Can you modify the user interface such that user will get notification about the restart every 30 minutes, then every 20 minutes, then every 10 minutes and then every 5 minutes?

    We are looking at changes to help avoid large numbers of reboot related alerts. This work is not yet planned, so I can’t provide a date, but the proposed implementation would be as below.

    For urgent reboots, e.g. to complete removal of a competitor product being replaced, users will see a notification immediately.

    For non-urgent reboots (i.e. where protection is maintained), users will not see a reboot for the first 2 weeks (typically they will reboot in this time anyway, e.g. for windows updates).

    If not rebooted for 2 weeks they will see a notification they can dismiss.

    The reboot notification be persistent on an endpoint; it will require acknowledgement by the user to clear it. We would expect to have a registry key to be able to prevent this behaviour for systems like shop tills, advertising displays and so on.

    If a further week goes by without a reboot…

  18. Request for Enterprise Features

    OK, Now that I have been using this for a while there are a couple of things that would make this dashboard better, and by better I mean a whole lot better, and possibly not just the dashboard, but the application also.
    1. Whenever there is an error, or an alert, or whatnot, and it says something like reboot required, or policy not in compliance, or realtime protection disabled, there should be a friendly little link or button that then makes the agent take care of restarting, whether on a scheduled time or immediately, brings the device back into compliance,…

  19. Remember MFA

    Allow successful MFA to be remembered for 30 days. It's clumsy having to use MFA every time the portal times out.

  20. Seperate Proxy and Translator policy

    Webcontrol Policy: Separate Anonymizer Proxy from Translators

    We have to manually add Proxy sites top the webcontrol exclusions area. On Sophos SEC it is separate and proxy can be blocked in one go, without stopping translators.
