  1. Revamping of USB Scanning and Identification

    Currently, if Malware or other malicious files are detected on a USB device, we are only presented with an alert stating it is there on a computer drive -- NOT what device the file is held on (only way to tell is if it is something other than the C:). I would like to formally request that when there is a detection, we have the ability to block the device from the alerts page.

    In the current format, we are forced to search for the *possible* USB device in the exemptions list of the Peripheral Control policy, but that does…

    • Sophos Central MAC OSX Command line installer options

      Enable the same command line installer options on the Mac OSX platform:

      1) --quiet
      2) --devicegroup=<Central group>
      3) --products=<comma or semi-colon separated list of products>

      At this moment in time, the Mac OSX installer seems to ignore all of the three switches above, resulting in us:

      A) having to click install on the GUI to install the Mac OSX client

      B) manually needing to add each Mac OSX end-point into the Sophos Computer group in Central

      C) Having to download separate installer components on the Mac. Not the end of the world, but not the same flexibility as the Windows…

      • Intercept x blocking outlook.exe

        Hello,

        Three times in the last two weeks outlook and multiple standard application like adobe seem to be getting blocked by Sophos intercept x as ROP exploits. This is creating an inconvenience for many users.

          • Sophos Central times out quickly

            Dashboard / Partner Central times out quickly. Is there a way to get around that? Logging in each time on that screen when it times out is a waste of time. I have to go back and forth on that screen when troubleshooting.

            • Add comment field in the peripheral exemptions view

              Add comment field in the peripheral exemptions view. For now you can see Peripheral Type, Model, ID, Policy and Enforce by. It would be nice to add an extra field to put other information

              Thank you

              • Add AWS Instance IDs to Server Report

                Please add an option to export a list of AWS Instance IDs.
                The Export to CSV option from Server Protection - Server Report does NOT include instance IDs.

                You could add an Export to CSV option on the following page:
                Server Protection - AWS Workload Security (AWS Instances tab)
                Or you could simply add an Instance ID field to the existing Server Protection - Server Report.

                The reason this becomes important is that duplicate server names can occur, despite following this document:
                https://community.sophos.com/kb/en-us/120560

                    • Pre-boot Active Directory authentication

                      Having Pre-Boot AD authentication would be exactly what we need.
                      It has many advantages especially towards ease of use for users.

                      • Scanning Exclusions

                        There needs to be a way to import and export exclusions, with over 90 customers in our Sophos central database, adding exclusions one at a time is terribly inefficient and time consuming. The same goes for removing exclusions removing them one by one and having to mouse click confirm is also awful. A better system needs to be implemented especially since this feature had been requested seven years ago in this Sophos thread https://community.sophos.com/products/endpoint-security-control/f/sophos-endpoint-software/2801/importing-exclusions-into-a-policy

                        • Automatically send phishing email to new users

                          There was a great feature in the US version that allows any new users to automatically receive a training/phishing test email. This is great as it sets the tone of our security from day one, however this feature does not appear in the UK datacenter version.

                                It would be great to have a feature that if a removable drive is inserted into the computer that it would kick off an on-demand scan of the drive.

                                      Would be nice to have UK relevant DLP Policy templates.
                                      Mainly for financial and PII related matters.

                                      • Outbound Report for Reject Status

                                        Extend the "Message Summary" with the filter, where you can see mails which getting rejected.

                                        • realtime scanning options

                                          Can you please add the ability to select read and write options for real-time scanning for endpoint protection in Sophos Central. The option exists for server policies in Sophos Central and for enterprise console endpoints just not for SC endpoints.

                                          This is particularly important for VDI deployments and neccessary where Sophos for Virtual Environments doesn't work in Azure.
