  1. Add a Widget on the SMC Console for virus Outbreaks etc for Mobile Security

    I have a number of customers asking for a widget in SMC 5.0 for Sophos Mobile Security. Would it be possible to view things like viruses detected, PUA's blocked etc for those Android devices that have Mobile Security installed?

    Failing that could there be an option to have it as a report template perhaps?

    • SMC App synchronization interval customize

      In the SMC Version 4.x could the synchronization interval Customize between the server and app. In the current version 5.x there is no longer this way. This should be considered at our point of view.

              • enrollment without user intervention

                Being able to push out enrollment process to a wide selection of devices as for companies who have work mobiles it means either going though the set up with user which can be confusing for some or doing each phone individually, which is hugely time consuming with say a 100+ phones.
                So a feature that could download the app and automatically enroll it and add it to the smc control but be dependent upon an option as a security feature so you cant just do it to a random phone, such as a confirmation for example.

                          • SCEP support for Android devices

                            I am using SCEP with Apple devices wonderfully, but the lack of support for SCEP with Android devices means we cannot allow any Android devices onto our BYOD network as we use secure machine certificates for authentication.

                            The existing methods to get a certificate generated and disseminated to the device would be very manual and extremely time consuming.

                            • Add device details to Enrollment Mail

                              When a user has more than one device (Common nowadays) and receives an SMC enrollment email, they can't determine what device the QR code / token is for.

                              This is the same when one chooses to "Reconfigure the SMC app" (Which we had to do for all devices on the SMC V4 to V5 upgrade).

                              We need the ability to add the device name description etc using variables.

                              It would be good if these details could be added to the subject line & the body text.

                              Thanks

                              • Automatic whitelisting of currently installed Apps - App "Lockdown"

                                It would be great if SMC would provide the possibility to automatically whitelist all installed applications of a device. All installed Apps would then be added to a specified compliance rule, This would simply the initial configuration of the Whitelisting feature.

                                • iOS - S/MIME switch in Advanced Mails Settings should be posible to switch on/off. Actually blocked by installation of Exchange-ActiveSync.

                                  If the switch isn`t blocked strictly by policy, user could choose if they want to sign, encrypt or something else by there self.

                                  • Android - Set Background Image [Samsung]

                                    Please add the functionality to set the background picture or logo on Android devices, I've heard that Samsung could handle that.
                                    With this option, companies can kind of brand their devices.

                                        • Compliance Check for Managed Apps (iOS)

                                          Please add a compliance check for the status "managed app" for iOS.
                                          Because when using the restriction "Company Data" the enduser could potentially uninstall and reinstall that (or some) app manually and so making it un-managed.
                                          Of course that's an auto-goal for the user but still, it's worth to know that all company related app, are managed.
