  1. Groups for servers

    With the new servers components in Cloud, users with large server infrastructures want to be able to group their servers together.

    Groups are implemented for users, but currently there is nothing for servers. The user I spoke with would like to be able to group his servers into things like 'SQL servers', 'Email Servers', 'File servers' etc.

  3. Allow device control in server policies

    When we introduced the new server licenses into Cloud we scrapped the idea of device control from the servers. Whilst I'm aware that it wasn't working from a user-based policy view when talking about servers, what's to stop us from have device-based policies for device on the servers? If it was good enough for SEC, surely it's good enough for Cloud too?

  5. Suppress popup notifications

    It will make my users not hate the product. We just installed Sophos on our Macs and these pop-up messages are making my users MAD. This can be solved by user preference to suppress pop-notification (particularly if logging is still active).

    I will have to find another solution if this persists until renewal time.

  7. User Request - Cloud Dasbnboard Group View

    Feature Request - that for all items in the Report menu and Dashboard, the option is provided to view the information only for particular groups that have been set up.

    We have three physical locations, each with their own IT admin. Each admin is only responsible for their own site and will want to be able to see just their own users' and servers' statistics.

  9. enable domain search on groups

    We have a number of customers who are adding in groups of computers from multiple workgroups/domains. When you import these, the users are captured in Cloud as "domain\name" but groups are only captured as "name".

    This means that searching for groups can be complicated. One example is a customer who has 5 companies. Each company has an "HR" group. In Cloud, this will show up as "HR" 5 times rather than Company1\HR, Company2\HR etc. which makes searching and reporting very complicated.

    I know we don't support multi domain sync but simply capturing and working with the full group name would…

  14. Show scan status in events

    If I start a scan remotely (Scan now), it is not visible if the scan has been started and when the scan is finished. Would be great to see the start and finish time as an event in the Cloud Console.

  15. Re-Assign Devices to Users

    Once a machine has been added to the Cloud console, a re-assignment to a different user is not possible (at least I didn't find this option).
    Please activate a button or drop-down menu, which allows admins to easily re-assign the machine to a different user.

  18. Installer Deployment - Update Download

    Partner Request.
    We had a roll-out of 30 Mac's (OSX) and each time, once the installer started the process needs to download additional 120MB, which x30 means 3.6GB of additional "installer data".
    Please find a better way to handle this, by offering an optional "complete-full-installer" with all updates included (of that day/week or month) that can then be deployed locally to all machines, for example with a third party tool and doesn't require to download that many data on each machine.
    Thanks.
