  1. Report of users who ONLY have Base Policy

    This report would tell us who needs to be put in groups to have custom policies applied. If new users are added and someone forgets to add them to a group, then after the fact there's no way of knowing without looking at every user's policies.

  2. 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

  3. AD Sync Tool - Disabled "Shared" Mailbox Accounts

    The AD Sync Tool currently does not allow us to sync "Shared" mailbox accounts because they are disabled as is best practice for Microsoft. This creates a significant manual process for us not only to have to create a "Distribution List" account directly
    in Email Gateway, but we also have to be sure to replicate all aliases associated with each one or no mail gets delivered. It seems a simple update to the AD Sync Tool that would allow us to sync "disabled" mailbox accounts would remedy the problem.

  5. Sophos Central Audit Logs

    The Audit logs are lacking in detail and visibility, specifically:


    1. When moving devices/computers into groups - the audit logs only show that a change was made to the group itself, not which devices/machines were affected.


    2. When a change in product assignment is done (e.g. we remove Device Encryption as an installed product on a device/machine or a group of devices/machines) the audit logs do not show which devices/machines were affected.


    3. When changes are made to a Sophos Central policy, what were the actual changes made within the policy.

  6. Block or Ignore devices that left the company

    Please add an option for devices leaving the company with the Cloud Endpoint solution installed (by mistake, not having possibility to uninstall, theft etc).
    My suggestion would be an "ignore/block" option, where the Endpoint won't be able to update anymore (SAU) and doesn't appear in the console either.

    We intend to modify the “delete” function so that devices have the protection software removed and tamper protection disabled. They will not show in the admin UI (by default) or use a license.

    The admin can recover deleted endpoints in case of mistakes with deletion. To facilitate this, a few core pieces of Sophos software will be left in place, these can be removed by the end user if they wish (the admin would then need to do a full reinstall to “recover” the machine though).

  7. Azure Sync should filter for group membership

    Azure sync right now syncs the entire azure active directory. How is this usable for anyone? It gets service accounts. It gets a ton of guest users if you share documents externally from onedrive, or teams. People who dont even work at my company get synced to the sophos portal. With BYOD I would want automated emails to go out to new users so they can self service, but thats unusable with Azure Sync.

  8. Users have no idea of missing emails quarantined due to attachment file type

    Hi, please consider this simple suggestion.

    Ability to include quarantined messages by reason "Attachment file type" in the quarantine summary but without the "release" option to keep them safe from themselves.

    Some messages that are not flagged as spam/bulk with attachments get flagged and sent to quarantine due to potential threats, but no one other than admins can see them. Unless you have a dedicated resource monitoring this quarantined list, users will never know about these messages.

    Not asking to open potential security holes here, but if the users could see they got messages that were deemed dangerous because the…

  9. add multiple selection boxes to quarantine list in self service portal

    On the Sophos email Self Service Portal there's no way to select and act on multiple emails. you have to work on them one at a time. I have users that end up with dozens of emails in their quarantine and would like to release or block them by selecting several at a time. you should add a check box to the left for multiple selections.

  10. Quarantine and PUA cleanup not working the way I want.

    Today Sophos automatically cleaned up a PUA that I did not want cleaned up. I had no way to go into quarantine and restore the file. I would like to be able to do that preferably from Central. I would also like to be able to not automatically clean up PUAs but continue to automatically clean up malware. There is no distinction in the settings.

  11. Automatic cleanup options for old machines

    We have over 3000+ machines that have not checked in for over a month. We NEED some way to either set a policy to automatically cleanup old/inactive machines or at least be able to select in bulk and delete them.

  13. Scan all Endpoints from Sophos Cloud

    I think it would be a good idea if you could bulk select protected devices and start and AV scan from the console, we had a suspect email come through and wanted to scan all computers just to be safe, the only way to do this is by creating a policy and applying it to all computers.

  14. Sophos Cetral & Azure Sentinel Intergration

    I would love Sophos to create a "Connector" for Azure Sentinel. The combined infromation from O365 and Azure would be amazing!

  15. 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

  16. MAC Address

    Would like to see the MAC Address listed on the Devices tab as well as to be able to export to a CSV file. This would be extremely helpful to those of us managing networks of 4000+ devices. I believe this information must be captured in the Sophos servers so I can't imagine it would be that hard to include in the Device information.

  18. Feature Request - Mass delete Quarantine items for Sophos Mail Protection

    Currently there is no way to delete multiple Quarantined items in the Sophos Self Service Portal for Sophos Email Protection. This is very much needed as some users have 1000+ quarantined items and do not want to sit there all day deleting these items
