  1. Scheduled decommissioning of devices

    It would be very useful to provide a feature that enables administrators to define a decommissioning date for mobile devices. When the provided time has come the SMC server automatically triggers the decommissioning of the device. This feature is very interesting in work environments with many freelancers/ BYOD users that have temporary contracts. It would relieve administrators from repetitive checks if these temporary employees have decommissioned their devices or not. Of course this feature would be limited to iOS & Samsung SAFE devices.

    • Adding MSCHAPv2 in the PEAP WiFi settings

      When configuring a WiFi with EAP/PEAP it's not possible to set the parameter "phase2 authentication" that is required by Android. When selecting EAP/TTLS, "phase 2 authentication" is displayed, so the idea would be a similar dialog also available for EAP/PEAP.

            • Add an option to perform scheduled scanned only when plugged in to charger

              So the other day I felt my phone getting pretty hot in my pocket all of sudden by itself around 5:30pm. When I checked if I left something on I found nothing wrong but did notice my battery level drop in the red pretty quickly. After some more investigation I found out that sophos security was to blame using all my battery when I checked the stats so I checked my config and sure enough I have my phone set to scan daily around 5:30pm.

              I like the option of a full scan every day but it would be nice…

              • Controlled scheduled scan

                Be more battery friendly by
                - defined scheduled scan time (at night)
                - while being charged
                - while having a sufficient level of charging (>70%)

                • Sophos MDM on Windows 8 tablets

                  It's currently not possible to manage Windows 8 (pro) tablets with Sophos MDM. This is a huge flaw for us. Since Microsoft is pretty much ruling the landscape these days and will continue to march forward in the area of smartphones and tablets, it would be a great addition to an already great product.

                  • Start Activity or Service remotly

                    Hi,

                    Like Tasker, it would be interesting to configure some actions in profile to start Activity or Service on clients remotly.

                    Example: Click on "Start Chrome" on SMC console -> push message to SMC client -> start Chrome via a Intent.

                    Thanks in advance,

                      • Enable encypted SMTP for use with Gmail

                        A lot of companies are using Gmail for their email solution. Gmail requires a TL S connection over port 465 for SMTP to allow encryption of traffic. There is no option to use TLS in Sophos Mobile Control, which is a feature I think should be added.

                        • Bypass iOS Activation Lock

                          In SMC implement the Apple feature to allow MDM solutions to bypass the Activation Lock (Find My iPhone) via a bypass code.

                          Refer: http://support.apple.com/en-au/HT5927
                          Excerpt:
                          -----
                          In iOS 7.1 or later, you can use a compatible MDM solution to enable Activation Lock when a user turns on Find My iPhone. Your MDM solution can store a bypass code when Activation Lock is enabled and later use this code to clear Activation Lock automatically when you need to erase the device and deploy it to a new user. Refer to your MDM solution documentation for details.
                          -----

                                  • Add WiFi setup and User certificate push for Windows Phone 8.1

                                    In SMC, Windows phone 8.x devices currently have profile features to configure Exchange active sync, CA certificates, password policy and "restrictions"
                                    We use user certificates for Active Sync authentication and can use SMC to configure this in profiles for iOS natively and Android with Safe2/knox.
                                    Microsoft confirm this is an MDM configurable option. Please add support for this feature in Windows phone 8/8.1 profiles.

                                    • Detect malicious outgoing SMS to premium services

                                      A common malware scheme is sending SMS to premium service to get some money. Please implement a protection scheme, which detects uncommon SMS traffic and notifies the user. This would at least keep the damage low if infected

                                      • Allow 'X' number of Apps per User

                                        SMC should allow 'X' number of Apps per User. With Exception of the Apps in the Blacklist, alls Apps can be installed.

                                        For example Setting the maximum number off allowed Apps to 20 will block App Installation once 20 Apps have been installed by the user.
