  2. Detailed blocking info needed for quarantined files

    I'm testing DLP settings for email Gateway: Email Gateway > Policies > Base Policy - Data Loss Prevention > Settings > Inbound > Attachment file type > Quarantine > use custom list. I made my test list of different file types I'd like to block and saved my settings.
    Now I found that some pictures (jpg) and documents (docx) are being blocked. I had previously allowed those file types.
    If I look Qurantine > Message Details > I can see that blocking reason was "image" for email with jpg attachment. Why? jpg filetype was allowed. So I had to contact…

  4. Controlled Updates

    Suggesting some improvements to this existing feature:

    Endpoint Protection - Controlled Updates
    Go to:
    Endpoint Protection > Settings > Controlled Updates

    You can control how your computers get product updates below. All computers still get security updates immediately to protect them against the latest threats. When product versions expire, any computers on that version will be updated to the next version automatically.

    When a new version becomes available, you can add computers to a list called "Test computers".

    When you are satisfied with your testing, you can click a button that says: "Update to match test computers"

    Suggestions:

    1) Provide…

  5. Sophos Central API - Pull Specific User Properties

    The current API options does not allow for export of "exchange login" username associated with a user. There are other attributes/identifiers that are pulled down, "suser", "source" etc, but "exchange login" shown in each user's account would be a great extra attribute to the raw log. This would greatly assist my SIEM correlation for adding events to a user's session.

  6. Notification of Client Upgrade Status and Ability to Reboot Remotely

    Every so often I go to one of my laptops or desktops and notice a message on the Sophos client that indicates I need to reboot the computer because the client software has been updated. The Sophos Central Dashboard should inform me of this type of information without me needing to personally look at each machine on my network.

    Your system would also be more valuable if I had an option to not only see that machines need to be rebooted, but to force a remote reboot if necessary.

    Thank you,

    Brent Hunter

  8. Make it easier to delete devices

    The UI for deleting computers is pretty bad. There is no progress shown for the deletion, the page does not refresh on its own, and the deletion appears to occur in the background. If I refresh the page after selecting and deleting 250 computers, the total number of computers has NOT gone down by 250. If I refresh again however the number has gone down a bit more. There should also be a way to create "SMART" groups based on criteria, for example, computers that have not checked in to Sophos in 90 days so they can be investigated or…

  9. 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.

  11. 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,…

  12. Allow the Sophos "Attachment File Type" list to be cloned/modified

    As it stands, you can either use the predefined Sophos list for blocking email attachment file types or you must build one completely from scratch. You should be able to clone/modify the Sophos list, as it's a good baseline, but I need one or two extensions removed from that list. I am now forced to painstakingly hunt through the cumbersome stack of extensions and find the remaining 32+ extensions from the Sophos list and build it manually. Yuck!

  13. 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.

  14. Self Service Add to Allow List Button

    Hello,
    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 for our people.

    Thanks!

  15. Granular access access rights

    We need the possibility to assign separate admin rights for Endpoint Protection and Server-Protection. Also a Encryption-Admin should have no access to Firewall Management. At the moment they can access everything, that makes Central useless for customers with several administrators.

  16. Send Quarantine Summary listing all messages, not just new ones

    Hi, how about an option to send a daily summary of messages still in the quarantine (left over messages from other days)?

    The current implementation only show new messages quarantined.

    Thanks in advance

  18. Filter the Quarantine messages by Block Reason eg Attachment type

    Filter the Quarantine messages by Block Reason eg Attachment type. I need to be able to see those blocked because of attachment type or because of content as these usually need processing quicker than the others.
    At the moment sorting by Reason doesn't sort the reasons alphbetically

  20. No auto delete of PUA files

    Hello, it would be nice if Sophos Central would not automatically remove all PUA it discovers.
    We are migrating from another Vendor to Sophos. Better: Detecting and reporting it. And after a while of whitelisting and manual remove we would activate the automatic remove.
