  1. device encryption file password protect option for Folders

    I really love the new File Password protection feature but surely it wasn't overlooked that the ability to password protect Folders would have been just as useful to have??

    So my Idea / request would be for Folder password protect to be added as well

  2. Sophos Central scheduled reporting.

    Sophos Central should implement scheduled reporting like in Sophos Enterprise Console eg Daily, weekly Reports... instead of reactive reporting where it emails for an alert or detection.

  3. Email Alert Configuration

    As Sophos Central stands at the moment, it automatically sends alerts to ALL administrators. We would like to be able to configure these alerts and who it sends to so every administrator doesn't get their email inbox flooded with these.

  4. MSI Installer for EndPoint Protection or Intune compatible deployment method

    Currently we are having to install manually as part of the enrolment.

    Intune only supports deploying MSI installers so we either need an MSI or an 'Intune compatible' method.

  6. don't warn the uses before the campaign launches!

    Using the phishing threat campaign on a trial. Looking forward to the results but then a bunch of my users are getting "Welcome to Sophos Central" emails asking them to setup self service accounts. This is pretty much killing the whole surprise so maybe you should look into NOT emailing everybody during onboarding just before the campaign goes live.

    The descriptive text on the Sophos Central option to notify users when they are added to Sophos Central has been clarified.

    Thanks for your patience waiting for this, we have now formally released a removal tool.

    The script was intended to assist support with manual removals they were performing. As the file name numbering implies, there were many iterations as additional requirements were identified. For that reason we controlled access via support to avoid people unwittingly using old versions with known issues/omissions.

    We have now produced an executable version of the tool, which supersedes all scripted versions. This has just been approved for release this week.

    Support will be using this for the next week or two before making it publicly available via a KBA.

    Later this year we intend to make it a command line option on the installer for even easier access.

    Again, thank you for your patience waiting for this to be released. Please contact support if you need the tool urgently, otherwise there should be a…

  8. Phish Threat Automatic Training Reminder Emails

    Sophos Phish Threat should send out automated emails to remind 'caught' users to complete training.

  10. phishing emails need to be randomized and need more selections.

    trying out the phishing service. I have used another service from a company called Knowb4. One of the first impressions is it doesnt let you do random phishing attacks, everybody gets the same email. knowb4 lets you chose multiple emails and the selection is considerably more robust. So user a gets email 1, user b gets email 3, etc, so the department doesnt let on that there is a phish campaign.

  11. HTTPS for Training

    Training should be done over a HTTPS connection rather than HTTP. This will also assist with user education of secure connections.

    All training is served over HTTPS in the latest version of Phish Threat.

  12. Email intervals for campaign

    Allow for scheduling campaign emails to come out at intervals over the period of the campaign. Currently all emails for a campaign are dumped out in the first hour of a campaign, yet the campaign runs for one month at a minimum so after that first day, not many individuals are going to click on that email so the data drops off dramatically. It would be helpful to have the ability to set email intervals (even %per day) so we can get the most of that month of an active campaign.

  13. Display more encryption details

    For auditing purposes, it would be really useful if the encryption information included


    • The timestamp of the last time the encryptions status was verified

    • Details on the encryption type (eg XTS-AES 256)

    Ideally there would be the option to save a spreadsheet/report containing this info for all encrypted systems.

    This would allow auditing compliance to be much easier.

  14. "Packaged" Endpoint Installer

    Desperately need you to bring back the full offline installer. Deploying the install amongst multiple endpoints is not feasible with our bandwidth.

    The installer now supports an option to use a local installation source.

    The KB has more details: https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/127045#Central%20Endpoint%20installer

    The switch is:

    —localinstallsource=<“path-to-install-source”>

    As an indicator of the effect, during testing, we saw reductions from ~320MB of network traffic for an installation going down to ~2.2MB, though of course this will vary depending on components installed and different versions of the software.

    I appreciate some people in the merged topics wanted a truly offline installer (no Internet connection available at all), or a “push install” utility, but we are not planning those currently.

    Hopefully the reduced download size achieves the goal many people have of wanting to not affect a slow/heavily loaded Internet connection.

    Please open/vote for requests on unaddressed topics, I will mark this one as “completed” based on the local install source feature being released.

  15. Manage Bitlocker password

    Please add the ability to change the Bitlocker password for a device from within Central. Perhaps from the policies.

  16. Review Encryption Dashboard and Report Filtering

    Sophos, I'm hoping you can improve the encryption dashboard & their reports. I have 5 x PCs currently licenced (trial license) with Sophos encryption. Although encryption is working perfectly (the drives are encrypted and licenses checked out correctly) the dashboard doesn't reflect any of this. The dashboard just shows me all my 300+ endpoint protected devices. Additionally the reports don't allow filters on encryption so I can't easily find PCs that Sophos is managing with encrypted drives. Only way I can do this is to download a csv and filter myself.

    Positive feedback is that I luv the cloud product…

  17. Change Exchange password requirement every time config is changed.

    Currently if we change our SMC configuration users are required to re-enter their email password. This is even required when the change is unrelated to Exchange. Frequently users miss or click out of the prompt. Can we alter this behavior so users can't miss this requirement?
