  3. Improvements to Peripheral Exemptions

    Suggestions for improving Peripheral Exemptions

    - ID's are too generic. You end up allowing the use of Removable Storage that hasn't been cleared for use by the IT department.
    - Notes field when approving
    - Approve peripheral for a single user or computer
    - A 'Last used' date value
    - Make the table of exempt peripherals columns sort able and re-sizable

    Thanks for your time.

  4. Tamper Protection part of Policy

    Make Tamper Protection part of a Policy.
    Now it's a global option which is ridiculous. I don't want servers with tamper protection, only our end user laptops.

  5. 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.

  6. 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…

  8. Easier PUA Whitelisting

    Easier PUA Whitelisting

    We need to know quickly what programs Sophos is blocking so that we don’t waste time trouble shootings problems caused by Sophos.

    A screen listing all PUA’s being blocked that are installed on any computer on our network with Block and Allow checkboxes would be nice with current state checked - user can change by checking other box.

    Also, the current white list interface for PUA’s on Sophos Central should also have a dropdown list all PUA’s being blocked that are installed on any computer on our network.

  9. Full Control Cache Update Locations

    Control Cache Update Locations- We should have the ability to set the cache update location in Sophos Central. We have multiple locations and we see computers NOT updating locally and reaching across the MPLS and IPSEC tunnels to update from a remote locations instead of updating locally. This creates unneeded traffic on our network and slows down update time. Please fix this or give us full control to set primary and secondary update locations by computer groups.

  11. Tamper Proof Global Password

    Currently you guys have each workstation setup to have its own SEPERATE tamper proof password. I understand the security behind this, but an option to have a global tamper proof password would make our lives SO MUCH easier when having to troubleshoot them.

  12. Allow end users to whitelist senders/domains from their quarantine

    Allow end users to whitelist senders/domains from their quarantine self service.
    Currently, genuine emails can only be whitelisted by an administrator on an organisational level.

  14. Bring Back the old policies

    This is a pain the *** to manage now. I liked it better when, when adding a new user to a policy, I only had to do it in one policy and not several spots.

    For example, all laptop users have the same restrictions. I was able to add the user *once* to the correct policy. Now I have to add that same user to four or five different policies.

    BRING BACK THE OLD METHOD.

  15. E-Mail Notifications for Customers and Partners

    We have partners asking for the possibility to configure E-Mail Alerting similiar to the SEC. In case of a e.g. malware detection the customer and/or partner should be notified by an E-Mail.

  16. Read Only - User Interface Login With Other Permissions

    Currently there's only an option to add additional administrative logins/accounts on a customer.
    A partner wishes the possibility to add a read-only account, beside admin accounts.
    Maybe other permission levels are desired too.

  17. Need randomization schedule for Schedule Scans

    In a previous Antivirus product, we had the ability to turn on a 4 hour window where the system perform a randomized scan of a particular server.

    Currently, Sophos Central can not provide the ability to perform a randomized schedule. Please consider this. In our virtual environment, I have currently set up 7 policies to split my servers into. However, each server within the policy STILL will start its scan at the same time as others with the same policy.

    A randomization option is needed to spread the IOPS load on our SAN.

  18. 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.
