    Very poor!

    Sophos release Cloud Optix to help with the DevSecOps, and we don't even have a simple feature to create custom roles!

    It's nigh-on Y2020 and we're still waiting!

    It's crazy how this is still the case with Sophos not progressing with a solution!

    With pass the hash and protection from this made available from Windows Credential Guard in Windows 10 Enterprise. However, disabling Secure Boot as a requirement for Sophos DLP to work kills this level of protection and other good MS security features.

    So fed up with Sophos team not fixing this!!!

    This is available in Sophos EPP on-premise, so why not Central?

    One would have assumed you’d take the good parts from on-premise and copy them to the newer cloud offering, not reduce the functionality!?

    We are looking at changes to help avoid large numbers of reboot related alerts. This work is not yet planned, so I can’t provide a date, but the proposed implementation would be as below.

    For urgent reboots, e.g. to complete removal of a competitor product being replaced, users will see a notification immediately.

    For non-urgent reboots (i.e. where protection is maintained), users will not see a reboot for the first 2 weeks (typically they will reboot in this time anyway, e.g. for windows updates).

    If not rebooted for 2 weeks they will see a notification they can dismiss.

    The reboot notification be persistent on an endpoint; it will require acknowledgement by the user to clear it. We would expect to have a registry key to be able to prevent this behaviour for systems like shop tills, advertising displays and so on.

    If a further week goes by without a reboot…

    The APIs are now available, please see https://developer.sophos.com/ for more details.

    For example, retrieving tamper protection status is available this way: https://developer.sophos.com/docs/endpoint-and-server/1/routes/endpoints/%7BendpointId%7D/tamper-protection/get

    I appreciate many people simply want the admin UI to offer the functionality rather than just APIs, and we will update it to allow column addition/removal and filtering on any column. However, this is likely to not be until around August as the development team have been reassigned to assist another project for a few months. Sorry for the wait, I would very much like this to be available earlier.

    I’ll leave this item open and “started” until the admin UI changes are released, but please do be aware of the API option in the meantime.

    This is absurd!

    Sophos, give us one, just one good reason as to why this is not already implemented!

    I'm sorry, but this is ridiculous!

    Can’t believe this isn’t in Sophos Central! Other AV vendors have this in their cloud offering and for good reason.

    With decommissioning of access still an issue in 2018, having decentralised cloud accounts increases the risk of inactive accounts not being decommissioned and means that we have to remember yet another set of credentials. Therefore increasing the risk of passwords being written down.

    Not only this but let us control our own passwords, so we can set the password complexity rules. Just like we do with our IdP.

    I for one think that it will take Sophos years to implement this. If at all!?

    Also, historically they are not known to implement something unless they see the need for it, not their customers.

    Absolutely crazy that this is not available already! When transitioning from On-Prem to Central, one must now:

    1. Manually create all the Computer OU's / Computer Security groups etc. manually.

    2. Rely on another method to determine if an end-point is not protected with Sophos.

    3. Investigate other methods to clean-up zombie items in the Sophos Central offering.

    Yuck!

    Wow! Please tell me that this is not the case.!?

    Sophos Central, with access to extremely security sensitive controls do not have SAML / MFA integration!?!?

    This is a joke right!?
