  1. Enable Client Isolation on Bridge-to-LAN/VLAN SSIDs

    Currently, you can select this, but it only applies between wireless clients on the same AP. Check out CClasen's insightful design suggestion on the User BB: https://www.astaro.org/other-products/wireless-security/55448-client-isolation-2.html#post285163

    • Exception list for Application Control

      We recently switched to UTM9 & seem to be missing the following feature:

      We would like to block Youtube & Vimeo under Application Control but still allow a group of VIP users to use these applications.

      We have a group in Active Directory (and linked it under Users & Groups) where those users have been added to but there is no option/field under Application Control to add this group as exempted.

      Is this a possible feature for the future?

        • Allow UTM to manage other sophos products

          Id like to be able to manage all of our Sophos products, single pane manage. I like the UTM interface, it would be great if I could control web/mobile/antivirus all in the one place.

          • Content filter action with no exceptions

            It would be a useful thing to be able to create a Filter Action that can be tagged with a parameter like "No Exceptions Apply", so that the global exceptions defined in "Filtering Options" do not apply to that specific Filter Action. This would allow the creation of a very tightly controlled filter action for specific groups.

              • Block Password Guessing for WAF

                In the configuration for password guessing, I miss the option to enable block password guessing for WAF Authentication.

                See
                - https://www.astaro.org/closed-forums-read-only/utm-9-betas/utm-9-2-beta/50498-9-191-feature-block-password-guessing-reverse-authentication.html

                - Mantis ID #30112

                Maybe it ist possible to implement this festure earlier than 9.350

                • Combine Application Control and Packetfilter Rulebase

                  Please combine the rulebases for packet filtering and application control. So that application control would just be an additional option to a packet filtering rule.

                  This would make it much easier to configure packet filtering and application control in a consistent manner.

                  The following request would be obsolated by this approach, because it would be an "any/any-allow" rule with application filtering enabled: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/3457198-application-control-ability-to-allow-applications

                  • IP Ban/Black list (quickly accessible - dynamic)

                    Very very often there are random attacks (SMTP/WEB/SSH etc.) occurring from a certain hosts/bots - often small pool of random addresses.

                    It would be EXTREMELY handy if we could have a Quick-Access-Dynamic-Absolute-IP-Blacklist.
                    What would be even better is if we can create and maintain such lists per interface basis. (one for WAN, one for Internal1, one for Internal2 etc.)

                    No host definitions, no firewall rules, no network definitions, no timeouts, no application filter, nothing.

                    Just a plain simple, clean, one-click away, absolute IP ban/blacklist.

                    • Giving a transparent proxy to disable routing between vlans.

                      At the moment at home I use a seperate vlan for wireless to be able to access the internet. Another vlan is for the wired environment with gives the right to access my company by a dedicated IPSEC VPN.I want to be able to scan all the network traffic comming and going from both internet and my company. If I enable transparent proxy on the wireless vlan and the wired vlan, the wireless devices are allowed to use http(s) of my company which is totally a NO GO. (in any case they would hack my wireless).

                      A workaround is disable…

                      • Allow for at least logo customization of the User Portal and WebAdmin page.

                        Would like to see the capability to extend at LEAST logo customization of the User Portal page. Ideally it would be beneficial to modify the logo for the WebAdmin portal as well, however the User Portal customization is critical if we are to position this solution against competing products from Juniper (MAG), Palo Alto, and Fortinet.

                        • licensing per core for VM/Software

                          Hello,
                          I didn't know in which category to put this and ended up with Operating System. It would be nice if UTM is licensed per core for VM or Software so it easier to compete with vendors like Fortinet. This is particulary interesting in VM worlds.

                          Having upgrade path to buy additional quotes is also something what should be considered.

                            Hi Damir,

                            Thanks for contributing to our feature site. We are currently evaluating a software license model which will more closely match our appliance licensing, and will consider factors such as number of CPU cores, rather than protected IPs. This is not a short term plan, so don’t expect to see anything until at least mid 2105.

                            Thanks again for contributing!

                            Some rules in Sophos Content Control Lists Rules are alerted only when quantity reached for example 10 of items. It's too much, sometimes you need only 1. So it would be nice that you can change quantity.

                              • Edit more UTM messages

                                When an attachment is blocked for security reasons (file extension for example), the quarantine report says that one could click a link in this message to release the attachment from quarantine.

                                If you disable some blockable things from enduser releasing than the quarantine report contains the same text which misleads users. The result: users are searching for the link which is not in the mail and complain about this at the help desk.

                                I would prefer to have another text for this particular case.

                                It is not really necessary to customize this, because two different texts would be ok, but…

                                  • Enforce SSL for authenticated SMTP

                                    Enforce users that authenticate via SMTP to UTM to use SSL, therefore not allowing plaintext authentication.

                                    • Unique IDs for firewall rules for documentation purposes

                                      We would like to have a unique ID assigned to each firewall rule, so that you can refer rules in your documentation by those IDs.
                                      Using the position number for documentation purposes is not working of course.

                                      • Full NAT for Whole Networks

                                        Right now Full NAT will work on a per address basis, but not a whole network 1:1 basis. This would be a very helpful feature when sibling networks need to talk to each other when protected by an outer UTM.

                                        • iview

                                          in iView reporting (eg. 10.176.200.27:8000, not the port 4444 one), user would like to have the object name based in Reports > Web Usage (such as Top Web Hosts). at the moment, in UTM, we can see IPs and Objects, but in iView, only IP based data shows there, since the user has no AD, then object based data reporting is need.

                                          related case number: 4857872
