  2. Sophos Central Audit Logs

    The Audit logs are lacking in detail and visibility, specifically:


    1. When moving devices/computers into groups - the audit logs only show that a change was made to the group itself, not which devices/machines were affected.


    2. When a change in product assignment is done (e.g. we remove Device Encryption as an installed product on a device/machine or a group of devices/machines) the audit logs do not show which devices/machines were affected.


    3. When changes are made to a Sophos Central policy, what were the actual changes made within the policy.

  3. Make the auto whitelist on outbound email optional

    The auto whitelist of email addresses from outbound email should be an option. Whitelisting emails in this manner allows for malicious email to return from the whitelisted email address if that email account gets compromised. This is happening more frequently now where compromised accounts are used to respond or forward emails with a malicious payload.

  5. More reliable update process

    We consistently have issues when Sophos Central updates rollout, where several machines are broken by the process. When they come back up some of the multitude of services don't start. This requires us to manually fix them. It would be great of Sophos could improve the reliability not only of software updates but the installation itself.

  7. Configurable language for captive portal

    It should be possible to configure the language of the captive portal. At the moment all the unconfigurable text is in English.

  8. Different names on executables when downloading installers in Sophos Central

    The downloads for Endpoint Protection in "Sophos Central - Protect Devices" all have identical file names. Would it be possible to have separate filenames on Endpoint Advanced, Intercept X, Device Encryption, etc? As opposed to them all just being named "SophosSetup.exe". They even have identical file sizes, making it harder for admins/users to know the difference after downloading.

  11. PUA - Dropbox and Spotify installs

    Add Dropbox and Spotify clients as a PUA - these software packages are unwanted on our network & the manufacturers go out of their way to make them hard to remove from computers. They can be installed on a system with standard user privileges.

  13. Email gateway

    The need to add outbound scanning to sophos central email gateway. Right now I have like 3 to 4 customers that has procured this service but wants to drop it due to this deficiencies. I am aware outbound is supported via utm but that won't solve any real life scenarios as this will still depend on customers public IP. Please it is of great value if this service can be available on central.

  14. Weapons/Categories

    I work for a school district and I would like to search my logs for how many times our students have tried to get to the category weapons and/or other categories. This would be a huge selling point for school districts. I also cannot search inside a user log for web violations in different categories.

    Guten Tag
    Wir es in naher Zukunft die Phish Threat-Videos auch in deutschter Sprache geben? Nur Untertitel ist ein bisschen dürftig.

  16. comments

    There is a comments field at the SSID page, but i can't fill the comments field.

    We have multiple SSID's but two SSID's with the same name but different configurations (Vlan tagging).
    The comments field would be handy to use, to fill in the configuration(Vlan Tagging).
    This way we don't need to edit the SSID to see what the Vlan tagging is on which SSID.

  18. Zusatzinformation für "Ausgenommene Peripheriegeräte"

    Hallo,
    wir nutzen die "Überwachung von Peripheriegeräten" um generell alle USB Geräte zu blockieren. Auf Anfrage nehmen wir einzelne Geräte in die Ausnahmeliste auf.
    Leider kann man dort im Nachhinein die ID, anhand der die Freigabe erfolgt nicht einsehen und es gibt auch keine Möglichkeit, ein Kommentar/Freigabename ein zu geben.
    Dies würde die spätere Identifizierung vereinfachen, bzw. überhaupt erst ermöglichen.
    Ich würde mir daher für die Peripheriegeräte Ausnahmeliste folgende Spalten wünschen:
    -ID des Geräts
    -Kommentarfeld

    Vielen Dank für Ihre Mühe.
    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
    Michael Matuschka

  19. Firewall Status Monitoring (3rd party)

    Allow Sophos Central to monitor and report on the status of any firewall found (Windows, 3rd party, etc.) on the endpoint (for those of us that don't use Sophos firewall). So you know at a glance whether the system firewall is running or not from within the console.

  20. Allow Users to request unblocking of sites via submission form

    The Sophos Web Appliance had a feature that allowed users to request for a blocked site to be unblocked. When a user was presented with a blocked page, they also had an option to submit a request, with a reason and this would then be sent to an email address for a member of the IT department to decide whether the site should be allowed. This feature would be great if it could be implemented into Central.
