    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.

    Currently the only way to tell if Tamper Protection has been disabled for a device is Sophos Central is to view the Summary page of each device. My suggestion is to add a column to the existing "Servers" and "Computers" reports (under Logs & Reports -> Endpoint & Server Protection) that indicates whether or not Tamper Protection is enabled.

    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…
