  1. Custom Reporting

    There should be a way to provide access to our back-end data, either through database access or through an API. This will help us create custom reports and dashboards as per our requirements.

  2. More detailed Reporting

    On the Dashboard, there is a section called "Web Threats Blocked".
    Clicking on this gives a list of users that have had things blocked, and the risk category.
    That is everything.
    We should then be able to click on those entries and locate those threats.
    This is similar to most other reports. We can get some very, very basic information. This is pretty much useless information for us, without the ability to expand on the details further.
    Can this reporting feature please be expanded to provide more valuable information.

  3. Better logging in email gateway

    I recently ran into an issue where all emails from gmail.com were being deleted. I could not figure out what was going on. I called support and they helped me solve the issue which turned out to be a wayward rule. My issue is the logging is so obtuse in Email Gateway that you can't really tell why something was deleted. There should be a simple note on the message as to why it was deleted. Was it an advanced threat, triggered by a block rule, malware, etc. There should also be verbose logging that lets you see the message…

  4. 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…

  5. Block entire domain but add exception for single address

    We have email blocks in place for most of the major publicly free email servers to reduce spam and phishing, but occasionally we need to add an exception in place to receive emails from a customer. We have both the domain blocked, and an individual address from that domain unblocked. We have noticed that this doesn't work, but this is something we could really use.

  8. tamper protection as a column on the device page

    It would be nice, while on the "devices" page, there be a column called "tamper protection" that would indicate whether it was enabled or disabled.
    Thanks.

  9. Sophos Cetral & Azure Sentinel Intergration

  11. Notification when Tamper Protection password has been generated/used on machine

    It would be great if there was a log or an email sent out when someone has grabbed a tamper protection password or used a tamper protection password on a machine. Also a report field of computers currently in their 4 hour window due to tamper protection being switched off and override policy being checked.

    The emails would be sent out by the same privileges granted by the notification RBA portion.

  12. Okta MFA/SSO integration into Sophos

    Request to have Okta integrated as an option for MFA / Single Sign-On, since that is what our organization uses.
    See this as a feature request and a High Priority

  14. 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…

  16. Users/Email Sync from Office 365

    Sync email addresses from Office 365 rather than AD. Sync from AD causes an issue if you have lots of shared Mailboxes, they need to be added/removed manually from the console. Also if you use SharePoint or Teams where users have the ability to create Office 365 groups and associated email addresses these are not added into the Sophos portal so all inbound email is bounced. Also since Sync deletes any manual entries we have to turn it off but that causes issues when we have new starters especially grad programs where 40-50 start at a time, they all needed…
