  1. Data protection is off message should instead be "Data encryption is off"

    On the Shops deskto client, on the right side it shows a message that says "Data protection is off". I called your tech support line and they told me what that means is data encryption is not enabled. Your message is alarming and incorrect, it should be changed from "Data protection is off" to "Data encryption is off" or "Device encryption is off".

    Thanks,

    Brent Hunter

    • OS display not correct when export report

      Refer to #8676405, the after exporting device list to Excel, we are not able to see the OS list the same as the portal. It only shows summarized OS list like WIN7, WIN10. However on cloud portal, it shows the full OS name with the service pack as well.

        • Improved device list views

          Including the ability to add/remove columns and filter results.

          For example, add a column about tamper protection, and have the ability to filter for only devices with it disabled. Or to add a column about Intercept X software version and filter for certain version(s).

          This would apply to Endpoint and Server views.

          We intend to make this functionality available via APIs as well.

          • Please Please Please... Stop the OS description from using 2 lines?

            Devices > Computers > Please Please Please... Stop the OS description from using 2 lines? Because I can only see 11 computers... when I should be seeing 22 computers.

                • Origin of Infection

                  I suggest to add the field 'ORIGIN OF INFECTION' on logs of one virus detecction.
                  This field is very importante in malware such as Conficker or WannaCry.
                  Companies like Tend Micro have this from fifteen years ago.

                  • Version Control

                    With the introduction of 9.8.3, I realized that there is no good way to view what version all of your machines are on. We have to look at each one individually. It would be a good thing to be able to view what version each devise, Mac or Windows, is on in the dashboards or devices list.

                        • Improve Failed Delivery information - reports and alerts?

                          The Message History is really lacking detail, especially on Status = Failed Delivery.
                          Helpdesks need to troubleshoot failed deliveries for end users and the detail in Message History is really poor.
                          Also an option to download filtered results would be great as would scheduled emailed reports or email alerts to Helpdesks when there are failures.
                          Thanks

                          • Windows Services Fail with Default Windows Defender Settings

                            The default Windows Defender settings can cause checks on system services. This slow loading performance causes some Windows Services to fail to load at boot. Setting a GPO to make these changes will resolve this. Why cant this be incorporated into the endpoint installer? This would prevent unneeded calls to the help desk.

                              Currently in Sophos Central when adding exemptions to Peripheral Control policies, there is no way to sort/ search for blocked devices by username or computer name.

                              Add ability to sort and search blocked devices by username or computername.

                              • Auto Create / Remove Accounts based on AD Sync

                                Currently when a new user starts at the organization, it seems that while the AD sync "creates" the user in Sophos Central and the Email gateway, the Administrator then has to send a new account link for them to be able to enable the spam filter (with a limited duration link). Couldn't the system generate this all automatically and remove the multiple touches by the the Administrator?

                                • 1 Click Administrator Spam/RBL Suggestion Button

                                  I'm at a loss as to why this isn't already a feature, but I'm submitting it anyway. I believe that this should be a feature for Administrators. More often than not Administrators are going to know what inbound email is truly legitimate and what is not. The current methods for spam submissions is a bit archaic, even with the Outlook plugin for normal end users.

                                  • Catch All Account (or Temp Holding Tank)

                                    I'm posting this primarily due to some pain points when implementing the Email Gateway recently. When we did an AD Sync, 90%+ of the accounts were accurately captured and included in the sync, however there were several one off's that did not. What we didn't know at the time was that the gateway does not pass the emails through to an administrator or mark emails as spam, but rather just blindly reject anything that didn't have an account sync'd. I'm suggesting some form of catch all, or temporary hold that has a notification for Administrators to view so that they…

                                      When browsing quarantined messages, ordering by REASON does not display quarantined emails if the reason is Attachment File Type. You can see this if you browse by date or by user. I should be able to see these emails if I browse by reason.

                                      • OPTION TO CANCEL DEMO LICENSES AT CENTRAL PANEL

                                        Once you have the licenses payd, would be good to be able to cancel the Demo license.
                                        If the user is having a product Demo session, you can't do it with the Demo licenses features enabled becuase you will be sowhing unreal features..

                                        For example if the customer owns a license without EDR and the DEMO LICENSE has EDR.
                                        Is a problem for us as a product Demo manager.

                                        • Gold Disk - Provide a method at install time to install in Gold Disk mode - disables client registration and Tamper Protection

                                          Gold Disk - Currently when following the "Gold Image" guide - the only way to achieve this in a an automated fashion is to disable Tamper Protection globally. This is not sufficient for fully automated build processes and results in us having to turn the global Tamper Protection switch off to achieve a fully automated build.

                                          For security reasons, we would like to have Tamper Protection on automatically clients, while still having an fully automated process to create as a gold image.
