UTM Application Pattern Requests

This forum is for requesting patterns for our Application engine. Create or vote for apps you’d like identified so you can limit or block them.

What application would you like us to identify?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

      This Proxy Tool is very famous and Sophos UTM needs to block this Application. The UTM App Control does not detect this Application at present.

        • psiphon3

          Psiphon3 is a VPN/Proxy tool that tunnels traffic over SSH over port 80.

          It's available as an APP from the Google Play store and also as a Windows Executable.

          https://s3.amazonaws.com/play.psiphon3.com/en/download.html

          Currently the UTM is not aware of PSiphon3.

            This is becoming a real problem in the education market as it is a place to anonymously bully or threaten. There have been many media reports on this site yikyakapp.com.

            • identify Unclassified traffic in log so that it may be analyzed

              Need means to identify what traffic is in the Unclassified structure so that it can be evaluated for Blocking or to simply ignore it.

                      • Backup apps: Crashplan

                        It would be an idea to add crashplan into the application control to give future a transparent control over this cloud based service.

                        I know they have not been around as long as Dropbox but it should be considered as they have a large user base

                            Battlefield 4 and in extension any twitch based shooter, there are a lot of MMO and other request but very few of them need the kind of low latency, high tick rate performance as BF4.

                            • Citrix ShareFile

                              We need this protocol to show up in Application Control, primarily so we can throttle usage; this service uses SSL to communicate with Citrix's cloud backend that is hosted on AWS -- thus we can't throttle by server IP, as the IPs change on a regular basis.

                                • Windows (and possibly others) error reporting

                                  There have always been some concerns about error reporting from sensitive environments, now that we know NSA uses intercepted error reports it would be great to be able to block these (a few systems will invariably escape policies).

                                    • German TV stations

                                      Would be great to find rules like the one for "Bild.de" for german tv stations like RTL, ProSieben, SAT.1, VOX, Kabel1, ARD, ZDF and so on.
                                      This would be awesome to get the possibility to limit the traffic to a certain amount with QoS/traffic shaping.

                                          Add in checks for the various cryptocurrency communications. For instance bitcoind.exe uses port 8333 for its communication with other clients and 8332 for RPC calls. Similarly litecoind.exe uses 9333 for communication with other clients and 9332 for RPC calls.
