      • Enable Install on Linux

        Please make it possible to install SMC on a Linux machine. Several customers do not feel comfortable with security software running on a Windows machine. Some even have policies to not allow Windows machines in their DMZ, so a Linux version would be highly appreciated.

        • Geo-fencing

          Push out or remove policies based on the device GEO location. This feature will require constant communication of the location with the server

            • Telephone numbers without country code in domino address book does not work

              We use in our company multiple domino servers. Sophos mobile control connects to the domino directory via ldap.

              Now, when phone numbers begin with 0 in the domino address book (without a country code), the device configuration will not work because SMC requires the country code.

              My suggestion would be to make this configurable.

              • Removal of iOS Applications via Task Bundle

                Currently iOS Applications can only be removed by manually accessing every device and removing each application separately. It should be possible to create "Remove Application" tasks in a Task Bundle so an administrator could remove an application with fewer clicks from any device.

                • Official Support of Zarafa Mailservers

                  Currently Sophos Mobile Control already works with Zarafa Mailservers (Exchange alternative) but is not officially supported. This product is quite widespread an a support would extend our possibilities to promote the solution.

                    • Reporting Interface like Sophos Enterprise Console

                      I think the current functionality of the reporting is not enough - not so informative, not be able to scheduled. One of partners that are about to start SaaS with SMC is trying to extract data from the SMC database directly. But the schema of the DB is not open to public.
                      If the reporting interface like Sophos Enterprise Console is provided, user can easily create his own report as he like.

                      • SMC: Control of the monthly used data traffic (WiFI, GSM/3G, roaming) for IOS Devices

                        Control of the monthly used data traffic is very important for our customer. With Android we can define a watermark and if the traffic goes beyond that, the user gets a notification. Will be very useful has it for IOS devices and a lot of our customer ask for it.

                        • Swap the SMC default page so that is displaying SSP instead of Admin login.

                          Currently default SMC url page (- https://smc.yourdomain.com) is set to Administration login page and SSP portal is set to - https://smc.yourdomain.com/SSP . This feature request is for this to be changed and default SMC url page is actually displaying SSP login. This way sys admins can only give out the url that already gets configured and hence no page extension are required. If SSP is not enabled for a particular platform then Default page only displays SMC logo.

                            • Device Wipe via SMS message

                              Upon request sent in by one of our customers:

                              Many employees are on GSM-roaming in foreign countries and advised by the company to use data roaming only when they really need it.
                              The most critical point is that a device wipe will fail in most of these cases.

                              A device wipe on Androids by an encrypted SMS command would be desirable (smartMan once had this).
                              The integration as a command bundle option would be nice.

                              • HTC configuration plugin

                                Here in France HTC is well present specially in gov and public organisation.
                                So have a look or devellop partnership with HTC to get access to HTC plugin, if any,or help them to build one
                                in a way to be able to push settings on those devices : active sync, restrictions (if any : block store and nfc), wifi and maybe vpn as a minimum.
                                This devices are push has low cost alternative to Samsung (specially by the third french carrier : Bouygues telecom)
                                and due to this difficult economic situation more and more come in these companies.
                                and today…

                                • Compliance Check for Profiles (iOS/Android etc) with Action Possibility

                                  In the current version 3.0, if a user removes an installed profile (a profiled transferred by SMC), we see only a non-compliancy X in the overview or details of the device.
                                  We should implement the possibility to take action like in the "passcode required" compliancy check, so that we define a set of profiles as "required", like we currently to with app white/blacklisting and if one or more of these profiles are removed by the user we can take action with our 3 step method (EAS block, Notification, Taskbundle).

                                  • App filtering by app category

                                    Instead of whitelisting/blacklisting specific apps, why not be able to allow/block certain categories of apps instead? So that you are able to block games but allow productivity apps. Trojanized and malicious apps could be blacklisted as default.

                                      • Automatic remediation that delete the "lockdown" profile in case the device become compliant again.

                                        When a device gets non-compliant today we have the chance to send a "lockdown" profile. Could be useful if it is compliant again to have the possibility to have an automatic remediation that delete the "lockdown" profile.
