  2. nested group

    Allow search filter in computer list to recognize separate nested group levels. Current behavior is only to match on lowest level but it would be nice if a search would also allow for matching from the top level group name and each sub-group name as well narrowing the search as the group names match.

  3. Alert sophos central ips detected

    When an inbound malicious network communication is detected and stopped there is no alert in sophos central only on the endpoint it could be a great information for admin to identify the bad endpoint where the attack was launched thank you

  4. UX/UI improvements for managing Server Groups

    These are my current pain points when adding/removing servers from Server Groups:


    1. The option to edit a server group is really tiny, so takes me a while to find it. It has the same hierarchy as the delete option.

    2. When editing the group, it only shows the server hostname. This is annoying if multiple servers have the same host name.

    3. No option to a server's group membership from the server list, e.g. select all desired servers > Add to group.

  5. Improve device list views

    Need some feature to easily view the device status from device list in sophos central. Currently, you can only click single device and view the endpoint status of one device at a time. It would be more efficient if we get a feature where the error/status of the devices for those reported as medium or bad statuses can be previewed in the same page.

  6. Self-Service Quarantine Search

    There is currently no search functionality from within the Sophos Self-Service portal for end users. It is only available through Sophos Central Admin. End users have complained about needing to scroll through every single email in the list to find one. Browser search does not work as the page doesn't load every email unless you scroll. Outlook search for the digest email is not ideal as you are only able to release an email and not approve it as a sender from the digest.

  7. Firewall Manager Improvements

    The firewall management, backup settings, alerts and all should use the device hostname as the identifier so we as partners can see which device/customer a task or alert relates to. There is no easy way to cross reference a firewall serial number to a customer quickly to see what actions need to be taken. Also, the firewall management interface performance is extremely slow.

  8. Allow Global Proxy configuration to contain multiple addresses

    Today this policy will only allow one address (hostname\IP) and this will then be applied to all servers and endpoints in that Central estate. Many customers have devices spread out over many Geo-locations with the need to provide a different proxy server address to different groups of devices.

    A resolution here would be to enhance the feature so that a list of proxy addresses could be added to the global policy and a device would know to try the list of addresses to come across one they are able to successfully connect to and cache this result for future connections.

  9. blocked site notice

    It would be great if when users go a site blocked by policy they would get a meaningful message that will advise them a company policy is in affect and not a "network issue" that caused the site to fail to load.

  10. Encryption settings do not work - FIX THEM

    FIX THE ENCRYPTION!
    No matter how much I assign devices to a NO ENCRYPTION policy, this idiotic software keeps trying to encrypt the device.
    THIS IS NOT ACCEPTABLE!

  11. Central Dashboard Data

    I'm a customer to Sophos and the Central Dashboard. I did some initial testing to make sure that items were being blocked by Web Control policies and now i am pushing/installing the client onto all workstations/servers.

    I would like the option to clear the database in the Central Dashboard (specifically the Web Control database) so that i have a clear/clean interface once all clients have been installed.

  12. controlled updates

    If an admin clicks on Controlled Updates > Control Updates Manually it immediately turns off automatic version updates, which isn't obvious and could be a problem if a new admin is just looking around. It would be great if this page had "Save" & "Cancel" buttons at the top like so many other pages in Sophos Central.

  13. Quarantine summary messages for M365 Mail-Enabled Public Folders

    Mail-enabled Public Folders in our M365 tenant space do not receive daily quarantine summary e-mails from the Sophos Central Mail Gateway. Quarantined messages can only be searched for and released administratively from the Sophos Central Admin portal, which is a poor use of IT admin time and resources. This is also a difficult scenario as the individuals who are responsible for managing these folders don't always know they are expecting e-mails so they don't know to reach out to IT to check for quarantine e-mails in these Public Folders - given the Quarantined Messages reporting tool can only search for…

  14. macOS Unknown Encryption Method

    Since APFS rolled out, encryption status on macOS from Central now reads "Encrypted - Unknown encryption method". Apple docs show either XTS-AES-128 or XTS-AES-256 based on hardware generation. Adding these options or just plain "FileVault" as the method should be displayed rather than "unknown". Please and thank you!

  16. refresh buttons for dashboard webparts

    A refresh button for each part of the dashboard would be nice instead of having to refresh the whole page to update.

  17. Quarantine Email Multi-Select for Release

    Please allow the ability for users in their self-service portal quarantine to select multiple emails at once to release. You have this ability in the Admin console where I can select multiple emails to release, my end users biggest complaint is the inability to do that and how slow it is to release one email at a time. Thanks.

  19. Tamper Protection

    I've now run into your terrible tamper protection system not working twice. I can enable and disable it as much as I want, enter the password a million times, and I still can't get the software to disable tamper protection. This needs to be addressed asap.
