  1. Base Policy for Windows Firewall Policy missing option to turn off Active Monitoring Alerts.

    Hello Sophos Dev Team,

    I noticed under the EndPoint Protection - View Computer Policy Monitor Type, there is not an option to turn off the Alerts - Application (Excel,PowerPoint,Word) was blocked by an endpoint firewall. This reads as a False/Positive that Sophos is blocking an application, when it is only reporting activity. Please allow us to turn off this Alert for our Devices.

  2. Modify Lockdown Status of Multiple Servers

    I would like a feature added to Sophos Central Admin that allows modification (lock or unlock) of the lockdown status on multiple servers at once.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. sophos Av push installation

    If there were an option for sophos AV to push install. that would help alot. Since Sophos server could be integrated with AD. it can pull the informations from the AD, then have the msi push install to every PC & server. instead of manually 1 by 1 installation.

    We continue to keep improvements to deployment under review. While we don’t intend to try to push installs directly (this is not possible on adequately secured endpoints and we do not want to recommend changes detrimental to security to achieve our rollout) we do look at alternatives like providing documentation on how to use deployment tools like SCCM or AD itself.

    Please also see my comments on this thread:

  8. 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

  9. Alert user reboot required after software update is pending

    I can see a lot of computers have "Reboot required after software update" alert in the Sophos Central. However, users never get any notifications about the required restart.

    Can you modify the user interface such that user will get notification about the restart every 30 minutes, then every 20 minutes, then every 10 minutes and then every 5 minutes?

    We are looking at changes to help avoid large numbers of reboot related alerts. This work is not yet planned, so I can’t provide a date, but the proposed implementation would be as below.

    For urgent reboots, e.g. to complete removal of a competitor product being replaced, users will see a notification immediately.

    For non-urgent reboots (i.e. where protection is maintained), users will not see a reboot for the first 2 weeks (typically they will reboot in this time anyway, e.g. for windows updates).

    If not rebooted for 2 weeks they will see a notification they can dismiss.

    The reboot notification be persistent on an endpoint; it will require acknowledgement by the user to clear it. We would expect to have a registry key to be able to prevent this behaviour for systems like shop tills, advertising displays and so on.

    If a further week goes by without a reboot…

  10. Reporting incorrect status when health service not installed

    Reporting of server status is incorrect. When you look at a server it reports all is well (green tick), however when you look at the status of that server it will show no services installed, surely this should alert that the server is not reporting any health? Further investigation reveals that the health service is not installed on the server so the console needs to show that if nothing is being reported then the server needs to alert there is an issue.

  11. Unique ID's of Removable Devices

    In peripheral protection, removable drives have 'unique ids' unfortunately it doesn't appear that the Sophos software is pulling the unique id of removable drives. This is a compliance issue for us as we only approve registered devices by their unique identifiers.

  12. Sophos for Virtual Environments (ESXi)

    Sophos for Virtual Environments (ESXi) should NOT require a vCenter management server to install. We have a large number of small clients that could benefit from this application but are unable to install directly on their ESXi host that is not connected to vSphere

  13. Feature request for exclusion type display

    I would like to request that exclusions for Detected exploits be displayed in the exclusions tab on individual endpoints. as of right now these type of exclusions do not show here so you cannot determine if they are applied without going and checking the systems registry file. For reference this is mentioned in the following Sophos case # 7303250

  14. SAML

    Would like to see SAML supported as an Authentication Method on the Cloud Portal. This is a very basic part of removing Administrative Access to management portals for internal/external audits.

  15. 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…

  16. 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).

  17. Deletion of Central Accounts

    If a customer or Partner decides to not go for Central he should be able to delete the whole Central Account. This is to ensure

    a) all his data is deleted permantly (data privacy law with cloud based systems in germany)
    b) he can setup a new trial with the same Account at a later point (to see if the gabs being closed in a later release of central)
    c.) from the partner point of view - it keeps Partner Dashboard structured and makes it more easy to manage and keeps it clean
