  1. Allow a Super Admin or Admin to be tagged as a "Service Account".

    In Sophos Central, please allow a Super Admin or Admin account to be marked as a "Service Account" (for use with the AD Sync tool). Service Accounts should be exempt from Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), allowing use of the "All admins need MFA" setting. This would avoid having to manually add new admins to the MFA list.

  2. Tamper protection - select particular computers

    Would like to have a feature to disable tamper protection for ‘selected’ machines. (To be enforced by local admins not users)

    This would prevent super admins not constantly being called during the night to switch off Tamper control on specific machines if local support in other part of world needs to perform maintenance on a machine.

  3. Outlook Addin "CallerCheck" wird blockiert

    Mit der einführung unseres neuen Warenwirtsachftssystems ProAlpha wird dessen Outlook AddIn "CallerCheck" blockiert. Die neuste Version des Sophas Client scheint dabei ebenfalls eine Rolle zu spielen. Wie fügt man das zur Ausnahme hinzu bzw. lässt sich das beheben.

  4. Deregister Inactive Computers

    We need the ability to maintain a clean database for a variety of reasons, including, but not exclusive to, sanity, licensing truing, and sanity.

    In our environment, all workstations and laptops should have Endpoint Protection (EP) and Cloud Web Gateway (CWG) installed.

    If computers have been inactive for 30 or more days for one or both products, they should be moved to an inactive state that does not count against licensing for each respective product. E.g., if a computer is currently reporting into Endpoint Protection, but has not reported into Web Gateway for 31 days, it should be active in…

  5. Web Gateway Computers

    The following UI enhancements would be great:

    Sort by column name
    Search by any column
    Export all as CSV
    Filter by existing values in each column
    Ditch the dymanic loading and use pagination (show 20, 50, 100, All, etc.)

  7. Website Management - Host Status Reporting

    Our Website Management screen has grown unmanageably large. So, I copy/pasted it into notepad where I stripped out some of the extra characters, and then from there into Excel, where I split it into columns, and then filtered by "Tagged As". For all those sites we assigned a tag for the purpose of blocking, I ran each through various tools to determine whether it is still alive or not. Those IPs/domains that are no longer alive, I deleted from the list in order to make it more manageable.

    It would be very nice if there were an indicator on screen…

  8. product updates need to work better

    product updating needs to be better. every time the product updates, we get 10-20 alerts that sophos is not enabled. when we check it is enabled. maybe 1 in 20 times we see this it is reporting correctly. this makes it very hard to troubleshoot real issues when we see tons and tons of false alerts. :-(

  9. Ability To Create Sub-Groups Within A Computer Group

    I used to be a GravityZone Bitdefender customer and I liked the fact that you could create sub-groups within top level groups which allowed me to divide up my devices per site location and per department within that location.

    I'm disappointed that i cant do the same here with Sophos. I feel like this would be a great thing for admins because there are often times where we need to create and apply policies at a group > sub-group level which makes the dashboard much cleaner and organized to look at and work with, instead of the way it is…

  11. Mac users not showing as domain users

    Mac users are appearing as local users, not active directory users. This prevents policies (with the exception of the base policy) from applying to these users without adding them directly.

  12. Adaptacion dashboard dispositivos

    Buen días Sophos,

    Dado que en mi compañía la empresa cuenta con equipos MAC, los nombres de estos llegan a ser un poco extensos y al momento de visualizarlos en el dashboard es complicado dado que la visualización es muy corta, por lo cual quisiera saber si pueden legar a adaptar el panel de visualización de dispositivos de manera que sea mas amigable y facilite su administración.

    Gracias por su atención, quedo atento a su respuesta.

    Saludos,

  13. Alert admins of newly added applications to control list

    Advance alert administrators when a new application control is added to the list. Administrators only find out when certain newly added application is added to the control list and blocked.

  14. 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.

  15. Event Logging for Exploit Mitigation Needed

    Exploit Mitigation is not being logged in the Events. No way to identify an existing issue with Sophos Central Endpoint , Exploit Mitigation and Internet Explorer and Adobe Flash Player with dinput8.dll. Had to figure out using Sophos Community. Please add event logging for Exploit Mitigiation features.

  17. 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.

  18. move computers between customers

    There should be an option to move a PC from one customer group to another. Re-installing should not be the only option.

  19. Block the Extension of chrome by policy Extension of chrome

    Option Block the Extension of chrome by policy Extension of chrome.

    Without this functionality the web control policy is useless, because for example with the extension ultrasurf installed any user navigates without restrictions.

  20. Role Based Administration by Product

    There are a number of ideas around Role Based Administration already but in addition to these it would be very useful to be able to create roles that only have access to certain products within Sophos Central.

    We currently have the Endpoint Protection, Server Protection and Sophos Mobile products and it there is a requirement to provide admin access to the Server Protection product only and for other admins to have access to the Endpoint Protection & Sophos Mobile only.

    In addition and as per previous suggestions it would be useful to also be able to;
    - Link Sophos Central…
