  1. Do not autoscan SD cards on boot unless requested

    Every time I boot my device the external SD card is scanned automatically, which is quite annoying as it contains some 55 gigabytes of mp3 files. An option to scan external and/or internal SD cards only on demand would be highly appreciated. Maybe as a notification in the notification bar, "scan now / skip scan".

          • Show the restrictions, which are applied due to a compliance violation

            If a device gets out of compliance, very common the company applies some automatic restrictions, like blocking email, blocking network access or blocking access to company documents. But this is not shown to the user in the SMC app.
            Please extend the app to show, if those restrictions have been applied this particular device

              • Auto Decommission on AD Username Disable

                For best practice on IT Security, when a user departs an employer his/her AD account should be disabled to preven unauthorised access to data.
                If would be good if SMC can pick this account disabled status up and automatically decommission any devices registered to that user in SMC.
                This then cleanly removes any corporate data and profiles off the device as part of the employee leaving process.

                • Disabling Notifications

                  On behalf of a customer:

                  They would like to remove certain notifications for App-Block.

                  Currently one can change the setting for all notifications.

                  Settings -->Application Manager ---> Sophos Mobile Control and unchecking the show notifications box.

                  Doing so would disable all notifications.

                  For an effective App-Block Sophos has already stated a need to ensure that the Process is not killed by a task manager.
                  Due to the sticky notification the process needed cannot be killed effectively.

                  Another advantage is that the user does not forget about the block.
                  E.g.: the blocked app is installed 6 months after the app was…

                    • Streamline App Protection password input when I open a protected app

                      Currently, when the App Protection password screen pops up, I have to (1) tap once to bring up the keyboard, (2) type the password, then (3) tap OK to open the protected app. Any way to eliminate (1) and (3) to streamline? I.e., when the App Protection screen pops up, so does the keyboard; when the password is identified as correct--rather than redundantly "OK'ed,"--the app just opens? Two keystrokes eliminated, but it would speed up phone use considerably! Thanks!

                              • 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…

                                  • 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.
