  1. 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.

  2. Ability to import/export Whitelists

    When migrating third party or existing Sophos email protection solutions to Email Gateway there is currently no way to import a txt or csv Whitelist, as per other email protection solution providers, including existing Sophos applications.

    This would be a very useful feature to have, particularly when a partner has many customers that could utilise a common Whitelist that the administrator can apply easily across the board and especially when an individual customer has built a list of several thousand domains that it would not be convenient to add to their new Cloud Gateway, one at a time.

  3. Sophos Central Email Quarantine settings

    We need this...


    1. I can’t set the Send a quarantine summary email more than once a day.


    2. If you want to select the country you cannot use the drop-down list keyboard shortcut.

  4. Scan results

    When a scan is finished, all you see in the cloud is "Scan my computer complete". It doesn't indicate anything other than the scan completed, meaning there are no results or how many files where scanned, or well any details at all. It would be extremely helpful if there was more information provided.

  7. Support for Resent-From header

    Currently email forwarding to an external email address is blocked by Sophos Central Email Gateway.

    This means that email send to an internal email address, that this then forwarded to an external email account (Resent-From: header item) gets blocked by Sophos Central.

    The only way to maintain this service currently is to bypass Sophos Central on outbound email to this forwarded domain (bypassing Sophos Central for this destination).

    This is a standard SMTP feature that Sophos have not implemented in Sophos Central.

  8. Sync Computer Objects & OU Structure from Active Directory

    Enable the Sync of Computer Objects and OU Structure from Active Directory as this would be beneficial from a management perspective.

    This was previously a feature of the on-premise Sophos Enterprise Console and it's very much missed.

  9. 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.

  10. Agent Version

    A column added to "Computer Report" logs and reports that displays current version of endpoint software for each computer. We have a few computers that are not automatically updating to the latest version and this information would be useful.

  11. Tools for cleaning up the device and user database

    Tools for keeping the user and device database clean are sorely needed. Currently there is no way to remove multiple inactive users or devices. Each must be removed individually, a horribly inefficient way of cleaning up the database. Even better still would be an automated process that examines the user & device database and automatically removes inactive accounts, based on administrator criteria. For example, I'd like to be able to configure the management portal to automatically remove any user account that has been inactive for 30 days or more. The same could be said for inactive devices - clean 'em…

  12. Reporting and Events

    Need better reporting.

    Need a report for computer with Tamper Protection disabled.
    Need to be able to filter events for all Bad events or for specific text within events.

  13. License

    Delete or edit the individual parts of the license when expired or N/A.

    So that they're not showing an expired notification or a 2999 end-date in Central Admin or Central Partner.

  14. 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.

  15. Self-dismissive alerts if the threat no longer exists or if the infected no longer exists.

    Client would like self-dismissive alerts if the file in question (infected) no longer exists (deleted or move) so it no longer appears to be a prevalent issue in the alerts page.

  16. Better logging in email gateway

    I recently ran into an issue where all emails from gmail.com were being deleted. I could not figure out what was going on. I called support and they helped me solve the issue which turned out to be a wayward rule. My issue is the logging is so obtuse in Email Gateway that you can't really tell why something was deleted. There should be a simple note on the message as to why it was deleted. Was it an advanced threat, triggered by a block rule, malware, etc. There should also be verbose logging that lets you see the message…

  18. Dynamic Device Grouping

    Everybody, please give this idea some votes so it gets traction! Also, I am sure that it would not be that hard to implement.

    Hey Sophos team,

    I would really like Dynamic Device Grouping based on basic criteria within the Sophos Central Web Console. What is the point of creating device groups and manually sorting all your devices, especially when you have thousands?

    The Sophos Agent is already collecting basic inventory information such as...


    • Last Logged In User

    • IP Address

    • Device Name

    • Device Description

    That means the Sophos software is potentially reading data from registry, WMI, Win32 API, or filesystem.

  20. Sophos Central allow for partial search and wildcards when searching for Computers and other items.

    Sophos Central should allow for partial search and wildcards when searching for Computers and other items. This is especially useful when search for computers when you don't know the full computer name or IP.
