  1. AD Sync - Remove Computers No Longer in AD

    We have a ton of old computers listed that have been retired & removed from AD, but are still listed in sophos. It would be nice if AD sync had an option to automatically clear these up.

    If it's not in AD and it's not reporting as online (For 2 weeks) -> Purge.

  2. Domain Controller Automatic exclusions

    Sophos,

    Can you please allow for recommended exclusions for domain controllers to be configured automatically, similar to how Sophos configures exclusions for SQL and Exchange.

    Thank you

  3. Hide tray icon on terminal servers - Server Protection Advanced

    Please give us an option in the policy to disable the tray icon or the tray icon information balloons. If an event is triggered on terminal servers, every logged in user on this terminal server sees a balloon with the triggered event and the issuing user account. This can be very embarrasing to the user.

  4. Using AD Groups for Computer policy assignment

    Although AD Groups are synchronised with AD, AD Groups cannot be used to assign Policies to computers (based upon Computer membership).

    Our customer reports "I would prefer these to be AD groups so if we create a server we add it to an AD group instead of having to manually add it to a group via the cloud console. Much more streamlined. We should not need to work in the cloud console on a daily basis once it is all configured and running. Should be able to apply this type thing via our local AD security groups."

    The same should…

  5. Reporting on SVE protected VMs

    Improve SVE reporting, we can't easily see from the Server Protection area a list of VMs that are protected and their status, you have to drill down into each area, in addition the VM status isn't listed. It would be great if each VM protected by SVE simply appeared in the list of servers with its status like the full client servers.
    We also have no visibility of machines that are not protected within vSphere without manually comparing a server list from vSphere with the contents of each SVE entity within the Server Protection area.

  6. Linux server as Update Cache with Message Relay

  7. Automate PUA clean up for same detection.

    Hi,
    I have an idea and suggestion regarding Server protection PUA clean up in Sophos central. PUA clean up is sometimes manually and admin needs to log in to Sophos central and clean the list even for the same malware or virus detection.

    It better to automate Sophos central remember and learn my action which I choose for PUA clean up? For example Sophos detect "X" malware and I choose clean up PUA, it save and remember my clean up action for the next time "X" detected by Sophos.

  8. Sophos for Virtual Environments

    It would be helpful to see the guest vms in Central rather then the Scan appiiances in Sophos Central when using Sophos for Virtual Environments. Individua Rules and policies should also be appliable to the guest vms.

  9. Automatic reporting for Lockdown events

    Currently lockdown events are requested on an ad-hoc basis by the administrator. This is a manual task and can only be performed individually for each server.

    Lockdown events are potentially critical alerts and should be reported in real-time to Central's event viewer (and therefore SIEM).

  10. Server Protection Download - Give option to choose components, exclude InterceptX

    The download for Endpoint protection gives the option to download complete installer or choose components (uncheck InterceptX). This option needs to be added to to the Server Protection download. InterceptX Hitman affects many of our business critical applications that run on servers and there is no way to disable or exclude hitman from hooking these processes. Dealing with support to get custom config files to exclude things for each server affected is not ideal... Either give the option to not install interceptX on servers or allow customers to exclude processes from being hooked by hitman in the central dashboard... or…

  11. Server Version Information

    It would be really good to be able to see a list of what versions are installed on which servers.
    It would also be good if I could find a list of server version components I should have installed on my servers.

  12. Sorting in Server Protection

    In Sophos Cloud -> Server Protection -> Servers page, It would be good if you could Sort the servers by IP and Group as well. Not just the server name.

  14. Servers to not auto-update even with new versions

    We noticed that even though we have the servers to NOT auto-update but to update it manually when we want to, all systems still get security updates immediately to protect them against the latest threats. Which is good….BUT… When the product version expires, any server on that old version will be updated to the next version automatically.

    This is an real example that we had where the current version will was to expire in Jan 2, 2019. The New version came out on December 11, 2018.

    Sophos just released a version and giving us less than a month to upgrade…

  15. VM's protected by Security VM

    Can we have a dashboard or screen where we can see all VM's that are attached to the Sophos Security VM's instead of having to go to every single VM and see which VM's are registered? It's a tedious process to go through multiple Security VM's.

  17. Apply policy based on AWS tags

    Currently Sophos Central can automatically group instances based on AutoScaling Groups (ASGs).

    If possible, it would be nice to automatically group instances based on AWS tags, to allow non ASG instances to have specific policies automatically applied based on the tags set against the instance, or allow policies to be applied to instances based on their tags instead of using ASGs as the basis for grouping servers.

    This would also be beneficial in reporting, as the instance tagging could be considered to be persistent even across instances, and across autoscaling groups, and would allow easy customer report customisation within Sophos…

  18. Add Active Directory integration in Server Protection

    I would like to see an integration with Active Directory groups in Server Protection. Just like the one in the Endpoint Protection section. As I would like to apply policies based on Active Directory groups that contain servers.

  20. Pull in AWS Tags for EC2 instances

    AWS Instances - Notes/Meta Data

    Currently, our servers in AWS do not get human identifiable hostnames and probably never will. This is due to the volatile nature of AWS and microservices. It would be nice to be able to assign meta data to our servers or better yet, using the AWS Connection within Sophos, to pull the meta data (tags) off the EC2 instances and display them within the Sophos Central console.
