    date/time range filter would be helpful in focusing searches without tedious work

    A Sophos Connect vpn client for ios and mobile devices that supports 2FA / OTP would be helpful for a current XG deployment.

    adding to this - will also help to be able to customize what's presented in title bar based on which zone a client is accessing the page from for obvious reasons.

    Identifying which browser tab corresponds to which XG when tabs all say "Sophos" isn't possible without memorizing or clicking through each one. Prefixing the page title that populates in the browser tab with either ip address, hostname, or some other custom variable would be helpful when working with many XG's. The icon alone tells us it's a Sophos product, the "Sophos" text adds nothing useful.

    firewall rule host/ip/service keyword search capability would be extremely useful. An expanded advanced view of firewall rules where 100% every object in each firewall rule is visible from a single screen without having to click through each rule would also be helpul - similar to another vendor's "show access-list" cli output.

    similar request @ https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/428821-sophos-central/suggestions/35978317-support-mfa-in-active-directory-sync-tool

    ad sync / service account role should also grant zero access to anything other than backend functions required to perform the sync function. The sync user should not have privileges in the web console, policies, or settings.

    similar request @ https://ideas.sophos.com/forums/428821-sophos-central/suggestions/33239809-allow-a-super-admin-or-admin-to-be-tagged-as-a-se

    ip-based access control for the sync user would also be an improvement over no mfa, no access control.

    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.

    global tamper protection status without having to manually go through each endpoint's page is a must when 1000+ endpoints and multiple admins are involved.

    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…

    yes, QoS / throttling ability is needed for to-the-box traffic

    properly implemented cli will always enable admins to get things done faster than is possible from point & click gui.

    looking for a way to schedule the pattern update downloads at designated times to avoid bandwidth saturation potentially impacting voip during business hours at locations with slow asymmetric internet connections.
