  1. windows 8 vpn profile

    Please can you add the ability to push VPN profiles to Windows Phone 8.1. Also it would be nice if you could block the ability for the user to disable the VPN so it is 'always on' for central traffic management.

    Thanks!

        • Bring back full documentation as PDF

          With version 5 some of the helpful guides like administrator guide and some other guides disappeared. Helpfiles are no replacements for that if you want to get a full overview of what a software can do and how it is done correctly.

            • Install SMC client from SMC Server

              Hello there, i think it would great to bring back the Installation of the Android SMC Client direct from the Server. In SMC 5 i can only link to a trusted web Server. For a lot of our customer this is not solution because we have to Setup a second Server or to Setup a webserver on the smc Server what is a dirty solution. Kind Regards

                  • Skip Installation Method during SSP Setup

                    During the Self Service Portal Setup Process the user has to decide between the setup on the computer or on the mobile device. It would be nice if this step could be skipped as we're only using the SSP on our internal Computer. Other option would be to use the Brower User Agent Information to automatically decide if the SSP was started on a Computer or Mobile Device.

                    • job status page refresh

                      After you sent a profile to a mobile device you will be forwarded to the job status page. In V4 the site refreshed immeditaley, so that you was able to see the last command directly.
                      In V5 i have to wait 15 seconds or refresh the site manually, so that the current/newest job is shown.

                      • TIME TRANSFER - ON PREMISE

                        My Android-Client have no internet connectivity (only WIFI in my local network).
                        After removing or discharging the battery, the time and date is not more correctly.
                        I need the time and date from my local timeserver or from the sophos server. It is possible to solve this problem?

                        • More detailed settings for sync interval

                          With SMC 4 the synchronization interval for devices could be set within the configuration wizard (.exe) to almost any value.
                          With SMC 5 the synchronization interval can be enforced via the compliance data.
                          However the lowest defineable value is 6 hours. Many customers want to have a more accurate setting in order to be notified after an unwanted app installation (e.g. sync every 1 hrs).
                          Can you please switch from a drop down menu to another way of entering the wanted value?

                            • Server SMTP setup

                              When going through the initial configuration after SMC is setup - on the SMTP tab it will not accept an email address in the recipient field until you either Tab or CR out of the field. If you do not do that, the address is flushed and you cannot finish the configuration. How to exit the field and retain the value is not clear when going through the process. Please put a fly-out note or a text blurb near the field to describe it for future customers.

                                • Prevent app uninstallation on Android

                                  (I guess not only) One of our customers wants to deny their users to uninstall an app on an Android device.
                                  Of course the affected app can be reinstalled by using SMC, but it has to be completely reconfigured and reregistered (paid app) manually which is why IT has to collect the devices. And these are almost all the time on the road.

                                    • F5 VPN domain Support

                                      I have a customer who has purchased SMC. SMC does not support F5 VPN Domain. The customer is now using Silverback mdm.(http://silverbackmdm.com/). Customer would like to move away from Silverback and would like to use SMC. Could I please request support for F5 VPN Domain for iOS.

                                      Thank you

                                      George

                                      • http trace method must be disabled

                                        Web Server supports the TRACE and /or TRACK HTTP methods, which makes it easier for remote attackers to steal Cookies and authentication credentials or Bypass the HttpOnly mechanism. please see CVE ID: CVE-2004-2320 CVE201-0386 CVE2003-1567

                                        In PCI compliance http trace must be disabled

                                        • Scheduled Scans

                                          Could we have a monthly Av scan option rather than only weekly?
