  1. WAF Reverse Proxy with authentication: add authenticated username in http header

    If WAF authentication is selected to be done by the UTM, the username of the authenticated user should be added in the http request header sent to the backend web server. Im addition the groups should be added in another header attribute. That would be a function comparable to IBM Webseal and it's http hread iv-user and iv-groups.

    For security, this feature should be combined with mutual https authentication, i.e. adding a https client certificated by the UTM to prevent modification of the http request header between UTM and backend.

    • Allow to disable the tray icon from the UTM console

      I don't want the end users to touch or interact with the endpoint protection in any way. For this I usually disable the icon and balloons modifying the endpoint configuration file.

      It would be very convenient to disable this icon from the UTM console, to avoid having to login in the endpoints and modify that file manually.

        If multiple senders write mails to one recipient, every sender should receive the generated password per mail, not just the first.

          • Monitor memory usage for each process

            I've seen to much systems with excessive memory usage.
            When there is a memory leak, or for example a massive usage of swap,
            this often isn't noticed before a customer problem arises.

            Create a baseline of memory usage by process.
            When a user changes configuration options,
            or after an upgrade the process goes behond a treshold,
            it should automatically be noticed.

            Of course, this could be used also for physical, swap cpu and disk

            • Microsoft Operations Manager Management Pack

              It would be fantastic if you could provide a Management Pack for Microsoft Operations Manager (currently Version 2012 R2) to centrally monitor UTM appliances and other Sophos products.

              • Built-in UPS for UTM/RED

                Some industrial and small form factor PCs are now being offered with an on-board UPS so that no extra hardware is needed. Building this into the smaller UTM appliances and the RED would help to make the devices even easier to deploy and manage.

                        • Direct Yubikey Support in OTP-Module

                          Hi there,

                          it would be great if the Yubikey (www.yubico.com) could be directly supported in OTP-Module of the Sophos UTM.

                          I know that all TOTP-Token (also the Yubikey) are supported. But you need a helper program to generate the TOTP with Yubikey because it doesn't have an internal clock.

                          It would be easier (for the enduser) if the Yubikey would be directly supported (For example, by authenticating through the Yubicloud like several Radius Servers do)

                          So the user would only need to press the button and the key (that Needs to be validated with the Yubicloud or through…

                          • Add optional PIN entry field for two-factor authentication

                            There are really two big issues I have with the two factor authentication implementation. The first is that no where in the setup for the user is there any information or instruction as how to use two factor authentication. Every other two factor authentication that I have used has had a separate box for putting in the random code. I only learned about how to properly use two factor authentication after calling support and being informed that I needed to append the randomly generated code to the end of my password to which I say "Really! and you arn't going…

With no predefined schema, data can be indexed from virtually any source, format or location. Then it's available for troubleshooting, security incident investigations, network monitoring, compliance reporting, business analytics and other valuables uses. I'm sure a deal could be worked out with them, you get 500mb/day of indexing for free

                              • TCP Connection Timeout - Modification

                                It's important in case of using EAS (Exchange Active Sync) that the TCP connection timeout can be increased within the gui. At the moment only one unsupported workaround exists:

                                cc [Enter]
                                packetfilter [Enter]
                                timeouts [Enter]
                                ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait$ [Enter]

                                It's an important feature if you use EAS.

                                • Add IPv4 and IPv6 selection to DynDNS

                                  When adding a dyndns provider, there is no way to specify the IPV4 or IPV6 address of an interface. This is a legacy carry over as one interface traditionally could only have one DHCP IP address, but this is no longer true.

                                  Having a choice would allow us to create two different dyndns entries to update A and AAAA records.

                                  • Provide a DC Authentication Agent

                                    Have an agent which polls Active Directory Domain Controllers for user logon events to determine which user is logged onto each machine. This would allow for all users on the domain to be authenticated without requiring any settings on their machines. There would need to be an option to exclude logon events for service accounts.

                                    • In MDM to block users from deleting apps

                                      Today the restriction on avoiding users from deleting apps can't be controlled from Sophos MDM (today this requires Apple Configurator that can only run on Apple computers).
                                      Without this restriction users can actually delete the Sophos Control app as well as any other app on the device.

                                      • App for Windows Phone

                                        In Windows Phone 8.1 you can setup a VPN. But only with ikeV2. But Microsoft offers the possibility of using an App, to aply more autentication-standards. Now there are only 2 Apps, who can handle this. Its JUNOS PULSE VPN and SONICWALL MOBILE CONNECT. Both are incompatible with Sophos UTM. So please add IKEv2 Support or an App to the Winodws Phone Store
