  1. Purge Inactive Endpoints 3+ Months from SOPHOS Central

    Currently there is no way to delete or purge inactive endpoints 3+ months from SOPHOS Central. Manual deletion is the only way available to delete or purge inactive endpoints.

    A feature should be add to SOPHOS Central which will allow you to purge or delete inactive endpoints without have to do each one manually.

  2. Remember MFA

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

  4. ad sync

    Have the ability to use a service account the does not require an email address for AD Sync.
    The Sync service access rights should be base off "least privilege", instead of Admin Access.

  6. Disable Tamper Protection on types of machines, e.g. servers only

    Right now, Tamper Protection can only be disabled per endpoint or all endpoints as a Global Setting. It would be good to be able to disable Tamper Protection on Servers only, on Windows Servers only, on Windows desktops only etc.

  7. Recover deleted items

    Sometimes emails get deleted by Email Gateway. Many times it is correct but there are times when it is not. Currently we have no way to recover a message that has been deleted. Rather than automatically dumping them, it would be helpful to allow messages to move to an admin only area to be reviewed and possibly downloaded directly from the portal, or released if it is determined that there is a need. A good example, we had an wayward block rule deleting all email from gmail.com. After finding the issue it would have been super helpful to go back…

  8. Central Email: Add the ability to add IPs to the allow list

    Submitting on behalf of client:

    In the allow/block list customers only have the ability to add IPs/subnet ranges to the block list. Having the ability to add IPs to the allow list as well would only make sense and seem logical.

    This would be an important feature to restrict access to an IP only and not a whole domain which can easily be spoofed. Reference XGE-5239 for adding IP to blocklist.

  9. Selecting Policy Name Closes Lightbox

    When cloning a policy and selecting the name (highlighting right to left) closes the lightbox.

    Can this please be rectified as it is very frustrating.

  10. Sophos Central Email: Smart banner support for plain-text email

    At this time smart banners can only be applied to emails with html content in it. Suggesting for the ability for Central to also add a banner in plain-text.

  11. 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

  13. allow scheduled updates

    Allow scheduling of updates and of signature updates. We regularly experience prcoessor issues on machines updating durign the business day, the existing scheduling options are way too basic and allow just one day and time per week. Also updating signatures should also be able top be scheduled instead of occuring all day long, bogging down servers and wokrstations when people are trying to work.

  14. More Reports for Web Filtering

    It would be great if there were more options under Logs & Reports pertaining to Web Filtering:


    • Top X Bandwidth Usage Offenders

    • Top X Websites (not Categories) being Blocked

    • Top X Potential Productivity Loss (these would be websites frequently accessed that are potential "time wasters" (i.e. Facebook, Twitter, etc.) whether these sites/categories are whitelisted or not)

    "X" would be the number of clients/devices shown in the report. Would be great if this can go as small as 5 and large as 100.

    Thank You!

  15. Repair option on installer

    Why is there no option to run the install as a repair rather than uninstalling everything and then Re-installing the whole lot which can leave you with a fully broken install?

  17. Manually specify a Tamper Protection key, or pool of keys

    It would be wonderful to have a pool of tamper protection keys or to be able to manually specify a tamper protection key policy per client or device group.

  18. Allow whitelisting from Email Quarantine page

    Please provide a button in the email listing items that are stuck in quarantine to "Add to whitelist and release".
    Also, please add buttons in the quarantine to ALLOW/BLOCK easily by simply selecting the email and then clicking the right button. Provide an option to ALLOW/BLOCK the email address or the domain.

    Currently, the process to add items to the allow list is clunky and hard to do for the end user. Please provide simplicity.

  19. Add Duo MFA integration

    Please add Duo MFA integration for Sophos Central Admin. Both for the MSP Sophos Partner Central Admin, and for individual customers. Having IT technicians needing to log on to Sophos Central with current MFA it's a pain as you'd have to have so many individual rotating codes for each technician. With Duo MFA it would be a push authentication to a choice of technician phones.
