  2. Presentable Web Traffic Report

    It would be great if there was a way to fully audit a user/system for All Web Traffic by date and/or time range, then have it output to a presentable PDF and/or Excel Format for a Supervisor/Manager.

  3. Real-Time Web Traffic Viewer

    It would be great if there was a Real-Time Web Traffic Viewer. That way, we can get a quick snapshot of current traffic and activity for troubleshooting.

  4. Notes field for each host!

    Central DESPERATELY needs a "Notes" field added to each host! Hostname and IP are simply not enough to identify a client without having to look UP that hostname. Being able to add asset tag numbers, location, etc. is pretty darn critical to us admins.

  5. Heartbeat spam alerts

    I'm having a lot of heartbeat alerts from computers that are going to idle. These is burring all the actual important alerts both on email and the central alerts. Thanks

  7. . It would be great if the console would auto adjust the width, it is a bit of a pain to have to run in full screen with the large monitors

    To have a web console that cannot auto adjust the width seems a bit lazy for todays programming.
    It would also be wonderful to be able to set what the initial sort function was, as opposed to last check-in.
    Manually choosing the columns to display would also be a plus.
    Other than that, the system is great and we have had very few false positives.

  9. Losing my mind trying to delete and search for devices

    Searching for and subsequently deleting devices in this portal is painful at best. The search keeps returning no results once you delete a machine and want to search for another so you have to forcibly refresh the page. Administration is not proving to be much fun as a result. Grrr.

  10. Central Web Gateway alert or notify administrators of blocked/threats

    If using CWG, clients are looking for the ability to notify admins of pages that are blocked or categorised as a threat. This will help with the administration process and being aware of their environment/network.

  12. Web Gateway Reporting by Browse Time per user

    Currently there is no reporting available that shows how long a user has been browsing the internet, or particular websites, or categories. This was previously available with the Sophos Endpoint Protection Console.
    I have been running web usage reports for years at the request of management and this is by far the most common type of report that is requested. They are not concerned about data usage etc. Plese vote for this and help us all!

  13. Tamper Protection

    1. Add a status column for Tamper Protection Enabled/Disabled in the Devices list.

    2. Add a Enable/Disable Tamper Protection option to the Devices page. You would check as many boxes as necessary and then enable/disable tamper protection for them. This is necessary for mass reinstalls where Sophos is missing services or other.

    3. Add a timed option for when Tamper Protection will automatically come back on. This could be a pop-up that shows after clicking disable which would then ask how many hours/days it should be disabled, or if it should be disable indefinitely. This will add administrative security as…

  14. Automated Web Browsing Reports

    I'd like to have automated reports sent to an end user based on web activity. This would be especially useful for blocked sites and policy violations. What would also be useful is a report on general web-browsing activity e.g. time spent online etc.

  15. Mis-categorized website

    This is the official Department of Motor Vehicles website and should have a sane default category.

    URL (www.dmv.org) blocked as part of category: Not Available

  16. ERR_SSL_PROTOCOL_ERROR does not identify it's cause a Sophos web protection.

    Some pages are blocked by Sophos web protection due to SSL errors but there is no indication that Sophos is the cause of the blocking like when a page is directly blocked by the Sophos. It looks like a network error, or a google error or something else.

  17. Allow XG to offload reports to Sophos Central

    Allow XG to offload reports to Sophos Central for longer term report storage. This could also as as a way to provide busines executive and drill down report to school leadership as opposed to iView format reporting. IView reports are too technical for most for school leaders and behavior managerd to find what they want. It would be better to provider something more like Fastvue Sophos Reporter school leadership to review.

  19. Cloud Web Gateway Logging and Active Status

    In Sophos Central, when an Cloud Web Gateway Agent Logging & Privacy policy is set to "Threats Only", the agents begin showing up in the Dashboard as Inactive. When the Logging & Privacy is set back to "All", then the agents show up again as Active.

    There should be a way to reduce logging, while at the same time showing agents as active. I suggest a separate heartbeat thread or connection to register the agent as online, rather than using logging events.

  20. Web Gateway Reporting

    In the report view on the web gateway it would be great to be able to see how much data has been downloaded and upload from a particular domain and at a particular time. As right now we can see how much from a domain over time. And we are able to see how much total data a particular time. But it would be really helpful to be able to see how much data from a domain hour by hour.
