  1. Create prerequisite for installation of Sophos Endpoint Agent in Sophos Central Admin Help

    According to the KBA27213, it is necessary to disable in Windows Server 2016 to avoid performance issue.
    It's better to do Windows update before installation.

    This kind of information should be addressed in Sophos Central Admin Help to prevent installation issue or any other issue beforehand.

  2. Web Control Kategorie Proxys und Übersetzer sollten von einander getrennt werden

    zu Endpoint Protection - Web Control
    Proxys und Übersetzer sollten von einander getrennt werden. Übersetzer sind meistens gewünscht. Proxys nicht.
    Auch ist die Standardeinstellung mit Blockierern ungünstig da oft besuchte Seiten wie translate.google.com und www.deepl.com nicht mehr gehen.

  6. Sophos Central Email Alert fro when High or medium alerts have cleared

    It would be nice if we got an alert for computers that return to green status as we do for when they fall out of green status. Sometimes I am not near a computer to login and check and often I do and it turns out someone restarted or for whatever reason the service is now running again. Getting an email to let you know that it is would save time.

  7. Alerts Group/Ungroup toggle setting needs to be sticky

    Please, please, please bring back the ability of the "Group/Ungroup" toggle switch on the Alerts page to be sticky. I do not want to see my alerts grouped. Ever. At most we have 5-10 alerts at a time. I don't need to have those grouped. I can understand larger organizations that will have dozens or hundreds of alerts and grouping would help. We are not one of those organizations and having to go click the toggle EVERY TIME I refresh my alerts is getting tedious. It was set to be sticky for a few months and it was FANTASTIC and…

  11. Disable Tamperprotection via API

    In order to allow for automatic & silent rollback / removal of Sophos Central Endpoint using a generic software deployment system it would be helpfull to have API access to Tamperprotection of individual clients.

  12. Please fix Malware and PUA report

    The Malware and PUAs blocked Report does not filter events to malware and puas in any way, it just shows all events including successful update notifications. This is not useful.

  13. Select all Application

    In Application Control policy the default policy is empty and would like a "Select All Applications and Check All Apps Added by Sophos later" option. More of a Time saver
    I know there is. Partner ability to do templates but still would be nice.

  14. Web Filtering - Web(XG firewall) and Web Protection(Sophos Central)

    Now that we've started using Web Filtering through Sophos products, I'm finding quite a few things that I'd like to see addressed. I'll start with just a handful.


    1. Can we get Web Policies standardized across platforms? On the XG firewall we have one policy with different Web Categories and through Sophos Central we have another policy in Web Protection with different categories. Putting exceptions into both places for the same thing can be tricky and even those work completely different with Custom Categories in XG and Website Management in Central.


    2. XG firewall has a nice built-in URL category lookup. Can…

  15. RBAC

    Dear Sophos,

    As a matter of urgency please can you address the following issue. Our Sophos admins are able to accidentally enable the base encryption policies affecting all machines in the estate. This has happened twice now and is not acceptable. We rely on a pool of IT admins across the globe to assist with the application of the OI custom encryption policy to machines. It is not desirable or acceptable to allow these same site admins to be able to modify policies that affect the entire global IT estate.

    Please develop either a way for us to lock out…

  16. Polling agent for non protected machines on networks subnet.

    You need a solution for Sophos Central the polls and gathers connected computers on the subnet that looks for machines that are not protected by your AV solution. Kaspersky had this function for machines that were on the domain or off the domain.. I find this to be a huge security risk that Sophos Central over looks.. I found a machine that I forgot during deployment to install AV and this feature would have alerted me to.. Please add this functionality soon!

  20. Export to CSV from "Manage Update Caches and Message Relays"

    It would be great to be able to export from the "Manage Update Caches and Message Relays" screen, to see what is the current cache status of servers and number of endpoints updating from each cache.
