  1. Set backup run time

    With the automatic backups currently you cannot specify the time that the backup runs.
    Could this be added to standardise when the backups are run as they currently run at random times between UTM's.

    • Support EAS Proxy functionality in UTM

      Sophos Mobile Control has a component to block mobile devices, which are not compliant, from accessing the Exchange ActiveSync interface of an Exchange server. It would be nice to have this integrated with an UTM, which is placed on the network edge anyway. This would be one server less and would deepen the integration between the two products

      • Netflix integration

        I would like to see full Netflix integration as an option rather than multiple subset of rules and exceptions.

        • Firewall Order of Operations

          Firewall Order of Operations

          Based on testing and additional information found in other request, it appears that the proxies/security services have a higher order of operation over the firewall. As such, even with firewall rules in place, the security services override those settings. With email protection, this essentially opens up SMTP on the Sophos UTM to anyone on ALL interfaces. This, thus, increases the surface attack area of the device to an unacceptable level.

          Changing the order of operation would allow the administrator of the device to dictate, via firewall rules, what can and can not access the Sophos UTM…

          • Port forwarding/NAT configuration wizard

            Currently, it is a time consuming nightmare for an admin, especially one new to Sophos, to configure port forwards. Doing something as simple as opening Port 80 for a web server, that would also be accessible from the LAN, is needlessly complicated. It might be nice to have powerful features in the GUI, but something should be done to make this common task more intuitive. On an old Linksys router, this is an intuitive, 3 minute task. I'm assuming most end users are not configuring port forwards every day, which means they are not experts, and it needs to be…

            • url bypass for file extension blocking

              currently url bypass is only working for category or url-filter blocks. This should be available for file extension blocking too!

                    • in SMC setting an option to choose how to clasiffy unknown devices (not managed by SMC). Compliant or non-compliant.

                      Now all devices are clasiffied as non-comliant unless told by SMC, so all devices must be managed by SMC to be able to connect to wifi. Which is not always the case.

                          • limit Anti-Portscan notifications to one per Minute

                            currently with the "limit Logging" setting you limit notifications to 1 per second. This leads to massive Notification Emails sometimes.

                            I'd like to have one Notification with a summary of the attac once in a minute or even better once in 10 minutes

                            • Bradford Integration

                              Hello,

                              We have many customers who are experiencing issues with the integration between Bradford and Sophos.

                              To be able to run a Sophos scan they are required to have admin priveledges and this is not an option for all users.

                              Bradford have requested we also raise a case with you after contacting them, To pursue your co-operation with them to work together and sort out a fix for this issue.

                              Regards,

                              Jordan Richmond

                              Khipu Networks.

                                Prior to the release of 9.201 you were able to download both the public and private key of internal users under mail encryption. As of 9.201 you can't, the option was removed. I have had 2 examples to date that I would need the ability to download the private key.

A client that used encryption used PGP desktop and encrypted the email and attachments that were then attached to an email and sent off. The firewall can not decrypt this type of email and therefore it came through undecrypted. We…

                                • Improving health checks for server load balancing

                                  We recently switched from a Kemp load balancer to using the built-in Server Load Balancing feature on Sophos UTM. A big feature we are now missing is the ability to do a http/https get/return health check that allows us to specify a path and look for specific text to be returned to determine if a real server is up or down.

                                  A second feature missing is the ability to quickly disable a real server in server load balancing. Instead we have to set the weight to 0 and disable/enable the server load balancing rule to stop request going to the…

                                  • Add an option on application control rule to execute either before or after web filter

                                    By default application control rules are executed after web filtering and once a URL is blocked by webfiltering, application control is no longer executed. It would be nice if we can specify whether an application control rule is executed before or after web filtering. This would be useful if you want to let's say block all media streaming sites except Youtube. So all I have to do is create a web filtering rule to block media streaming category and create a application control rule to allow YouTube and have it execute before web filtering. This way I don't have to…

                                    • FTP SITE CHANGE

                                      changing the way the FTP site works

                                      Essentially as the .md file in the FTP directory is from the same FTP site, it doesn't mean or validate anything (e.g. cannot be relied upon to validate the trustworthiness of the file). Reason being if the site is spoofed (e.g. via DNS) then we cannot validate the identity of the remote server, given it is clear-text FTP (no mechanism to validate the site's identity, such as via SSL/TLS). Further, if the site has been compromised, an attacker merely has to place the MD5 hash there for the malicious ISO file they replaced.

                                        • encrypt a message released from quarantine

                                          Make it so a message that is released from quarantine could be encrypted

                                          For instance, outbound message has credit card numbers in it, so it is quarantined. The Admin see this and knows the email must go through, but it should be encrypted, so encrypt then release.
