  1. Self-dismissive alerts if the threat no longer exists or if the infected no longer exists.

    Client would like self-dismissive alerts if the file in question (infected) no longer exists (deleted or move) so it no longer appears to be a prevalent issue in the alerts page.

  2. Sophos Central allow for partial search and wildcards when searching for Computers and other items.

    Sophos Central should allow for partial search and wildcards when searching for Computers and other items. This is especially useful when search for computers when you don't know the full computer name or IP.

  4. Ability to use an authenticated proxy for updating and installing

    The ability to set a proxy for updates and installs.

    If a client is using an authenticated proxy the only option is to put in exclusions for our update and amazon server to allow traffic to bypass it.

    Add option to the cloud dashboard or installer to use a proxy to get out to grab the installer files

  5. Ability to set a proxy for web control/filtering

    Client uses a SOCKS proxy and noticed when they turned off Block malicious websites using real time URL reputation in the dashboard they were able to get out to the internet through the proxy. But when the setting was turned on they couldn't. Also by putting in a website exclusion for the SOCKS IP address resolved the issue.

    Client would like the ability to set a proxy for web control/web filtering

  6. endpoint detector

    If an unbundled function that would detect endpoints not already protected by Sophos Endpoint Security and Control software (Cloud edition) were to become available,
    that would contribute substantial revenue to your Cloud organization’s income.

  7. Sophos Cloud to protect Mac Servers

    One of our re-sellers has a number of clients who have migrated from Windows endpoints to Mac Endpoints and love the idea of Sophos Cloud, however the Cloud Server Protection doesn’t support Mac Servers. I Understand
    this can be dealt with the normal non-cloud server protection, however if this was support via Cloud, we’d have a lot more customers migrating instead of choosing other solutions instead of Sophos

  8. Network threat protection

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?: It’s a missing component to the feature you’re providing. How do I know that your software is blocking the scanner over the network if the software doesn’t alert me to this fact?

  11. pop up notifications

    Users are currently be presented obtrusive notifications when a tracking cookie or site has been blocked. One of the reasons I chose sophos is because of the transparency to users, while this current pop-up is the exact opposite of my goals.
    Example image:


    My users should not have a pop-up notification (or I should have the ability to disable them as an Admin) disturbing them for every single tracking cookie or ad coming from a known malicious location.

  13. Block or Ignore devices that left the company

    Please add an option for devices leaving the company with the Cloud Endpoint solution installed (by mistake, not having possibility to uninstall, theft etc).
    My suggestion would be an "ignore/block" option, where the Endpoint won't be able to update anymore (SAU) and doesn't appear in the console either.

    We intend to modify the “delete” function so that devices have the protection software removed and tamper protection disabled. They will not show in the admin UI (by default) or use a license.

    The admin can recover deleted endpoints in case of mistakes with deletion. To facilitate this, a few core pieces of Sophos software will be left in place, these can be removed by the end user if they wish (the admin would then need to do a full reinstall to “recover” the machine though).

  14. email admin

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?: We have a Security Operation Center that responds to any anti-virus alerts. They require notification to any Sophos events on the endpoints or servers, but should not
    have administrative access to the console. Additionally, it would be nice to be able to grant people read-only access to the console.

  16. Change timeout time on console

    The customer would like the ability to change the automatic logout time on the console:

    How will this new feature address your business requirements?:
    It will increase our efficiency; we now have to log in again a lot. And especially with long e-mail logins, this is not the desired situation.

  18. Remove UAC prompt behavior

    The feature requested is to change the User Account Control (UAC) behavior of the Sophos Endpoint on windows clients (we are using Windows 7 Pro). Right-clicking the taskbar Sophos Icon or selecting a folder and “Scan with Sophos AV” launches a UAC popup prompting the user to allow Sophos to make changes to the computer.


    Can you please remove this UAC prompt. It adds an unnecessary step that is not required by competitor AV endpoints. It can also lead to reduced security as users may lower their UAC settings so as to not get the ‘annoyance’ of the popup.

  19. Do not buffer internet radio as it causes delay in starting a stream

    Since we are a media/news company, we have multiple users across the company that stream numerous internet radio stations. Since these are true streaming stations that use little bandwidth, the scanning agent will buffer 2 MB of data before passing it to the client, causing a delay of 5-6 minutes to start the stream. This feature would reduce the IT load of having to manually enter an exception for each streaming radio network.
