  1. Separate licensing for Linux Endpoints

    Estate Licensing for Mixed Windows/Linux only makes "Cents" for Sophos, Does NOT make "Sense" for customers. Effectively Sophos and MSP's have to charge more for a product that gets no or limited additional features from the Standard protection. When selling to clients whom have both Linux and windows servers it is kind of hard tell them. Get advanced its great on your windows boxes. Oh, and you get to pay more for your Linux servers and get no extra benefit.

    Linux products really should have there own SKU. And be priced separately. I see some posts for Linux workstations to…

  2. allow scheduled updates

    Allow scheduling of updates and of signature updates. We regularly experience prcoessor issues on machines updating durign the business day, the existing scheduling options are way too basic and allow just one day and time per week. Also updating signatures should also be able top be scheduled instead of occuring all day long, bogging down servers and wokrstations when people are trying to work.

  3. Repair option on installer

    Why is there no option to run the install as a repair rather than uninstalling everything and then Re-installing the whole lot which can leave you with a fully broken install?

  4. Disable Tamper Protection on types of machines, e.g. servers only

    Right now, Tamper Protection can only be disabled per endpoint or all endpoints as a Global Setting. It would be good to be able to disable Tamper Protection on Servers only, on Windows Servers only, on Windows desktops only etc.

  5. Allow custom Sophos Central reports to be emailed to custom recipients

    Allow custom Sophos Central reports to be emailed to custom recipients .Currently when a SuperAdmin creates a custom report (for example pot report on ba server health on a daily basis) the report is only sent to the Super User. Instead it would be preferable to allow the report to be sent to a custom recipient to allow other IT teams in the business to take action.

  7. Azure VMs - Automatically remove devices that are destroyed.

    We have issues where Azure VMs are created for a short period of time and then automatically destroyed. This causes us issues with multiple entries of the same devices listing and alerting in Sophos. Suggestion is to have these automatically removed from Sophos Central so that no manual clearing is needed

  9. 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.

  10. nfs

    The ability to exclude NFS mounts from scheduled scans. Manually excluding mounts is a PITA, this was available on other versions (https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/114372).

    I get that the vulnerabilities can get onto shares, but I don't need a scheduled scan from 30 servers scanning the same mount points.

  12. Get Connectwise:Automate added

    Could we add Connectwise: Automate, to the application control, we continue to have issues with exceptions.

    We added all the file paths and files and still have issues with the application.

  13. Log uninstallation to Sophos Cloud Portal

    I've learned that it takes 2 weeks for a server product that has been uninstalled to move to an "unhealthy" state in the Sophos Central Server portal. While this is acceptable for an endpoint/desktop product, the uninstallation of a server is something that should update the portal during the uninstall and immediately move the server to an unhealthy or alarmed state indicating that the software has been uninstalled.

    Yes, I know that only authorized users should be removing the software from a server, however in the event that different groups are responsible for installation and management of the software, it's…

  14. Make Tamper Protect actually usable

    Tamper protection causes me more work than anything else. there needs to be a way to enter the Admin Password that is not through the client as that is often the first thing that breaks and the Sophos installation is then broken, the only fix involves major surgery which is unacceptable. There needs to be another way to enter the Admin password so the installation can be managed.

  15. Apply automatic activity exclusions for Windows Internal Database

    Windows Internal Database is a variant of SQL Server Express 2005-2014 used by Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) and Windows SharePoint Services, included in various version of Windows Server.

    It is currently not detected for SQL server exclusions as per https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/121461 and so manual exclusions have to be applied.

    It would help for Sophos Central to detect this the same way it does 'normal' installs of Microsoft SQL Server and set up exclusions automatically.

    It is installed to C:\Windows\sysmsi\ssee\ or C:\Windows\WID and works with *.mdf / *.ldf files the same as a normal SQL server install.

  16. HIGH Alert not getting taken care of.

    We have been getting a HIGH Alert from Sophos for the firewall loosing the connection to Sophos since the first part of May. I know it's just a glitch but don't you think you should address this? If something were really wrong how would we know? Loosing confidence.

  17. Scheduled Threat Reports

    Kindly consider the option of scheduled reports.
    So that users can get auto-generated threat reports.
    Currently i have to log into the portal to generate the report.
    Kindly look into the possibility of doing this. Thanks

  18. Send an alert when a server fails to register with Sophos Central

    We were seeing an issue with cloned devices that weren't listed in in Sophos Central. It turns out that there were some servers trying to connect with duplicate endpoint IDs (causing the server to send back a 401 error). We can resolve this with a change to our process for creating and deploying instances so that each one registers with a unique endpoint ID. It would be better, though, if we could also get an alert when this happens. As of now, if any server is not following the process for deploying servers from gold images, we won't know unless…

  19. Sophos component version Report

    It would be very helpful if there was a report to show all component versions of all the server endpoints. We could use it now trying to verify that all of them have the version that fixes the issue with the MS April security patches. Instead we've had to rely on other tools.

  20. Update Cache setting gets removed after accidental server duplication

    Our Windows server designated as the Update Cache gets duplicated when we do our monthly Disaster Recovery (DR) tests. I then delete the duplicated machine. The remaining real machine, however, has then lost its Update Cache setting, and I have to reconfigure that.
