  1. allow users to select the reports they want emailed to them

    If I schedule a report from our web appliance I can select the package I want but not the individual reports within that package. For example the Policy compliance package has the following reports but I do not want all of them

    Top Bandwidth Users - top 25 users who consumed the most bandwidth and their top five destinations
    Policy violators - full list of users who violated policy and attempted to access unauthorized categories
    Top Users by Browse Time - the top 25 users by time spent browsing web pages

    • Support for MTP (android devices) data copying

      Sophos currently do not support MTP devices connected to machines using any Safeguard product (support call 4077876). This means that a user can connect a Samsung S4, and copy files to it unencrypted. There is an app available, but these are not company phones and other than using Sophos AV (which we do not), users are not going to install the APP and can copy files unencrypted

      • hostapd & WiFi cards

        I'd be delighted to have my mPCIe WiFi card showing up in the interface list so i could build up a WiFi segment with hostapd directly from my UTM 9.x device... Ahhh yeah that'll smoke everything else for sure =)

        • For shared Encrypted laptops, the ability to add a POA user account specific to a Computer rather than to an OU.

          In Safeguard Enterprise. For shared Encrypted laptops, the ability to add a POA user account specific to a Computer rather than to an OU, to allow a logon through POA, obviously not onto the domain

          • Heartbeat Interval Adjustment

            Ability to adjust the heartbeat interval, vis a vis Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync

            The average of the most recent heartbeat intervals [477] for request [Sync] used by clients is less than or equal to [540].
            Make sure that your firewall configuration is set to work correctly with Exchange ActiveSync and direct push technology. Specifically, make sure that your firewall is configured so that requests to Exchange ActiveSync do not expire before they have the opportunity to be processed.

            • How about an easy way to add multiple file exclusions in UTM Endpoint

              I would think this would be a requirement for the product to be competitive in todays market place. Given that Sophos recommendation is to exclude process/files in Microsoft AV exclusions list (there are numerous), you would think there would be a less manual method of adding exclusions. I've never seen an AV product where you couldn't copy and paste exclusions.

              • Add "lefthostaccess=yes" in StrongSWAN configs.

                "conn" entries in ipsec.conf should include (or have the option to include) "lefthostaccess=yes" to allow the UTM host itself to use the tunnel. This allows the web proxy to operate when local clients access web servers at the remote site. It also allows DNS Request Routing to function through the tunnel.

                • Ability to manage file exclusions from SUM or least be able to add file exclusions in less painful way. IE SSH -> single command for rule

                  Adding file exclusions in UTM is painful. Especially when there are 100's provided by vendors like Microsoft. Then you have to do it for each site. Lot of work here.

                      • Web Server Protection: Support for ActiveSync 14.1

                        WAF doesn't support ActiveSync 14.1, i.e. after you install SP3 for Exchange 2010, you can't use use WAF to protect your ActiveSync Server anymore. This is poor.

                          • DHCP Relay Load Balancing

                            The DHCP relay feature allows the use of an availability group which can have one or more DHCP servers defined. The issue is the second server listed would never get a request unless the first one fails.

                            Starting with Windows 2012 R2 the DHCP service supports failover/load balanced scopes without the need for complex clustering technologies. Basically the servers have a copy of the scope each and have a defined percentage which they can issue. Plus they monitor each other for taking over the scope if the partner was to fail.

                            Now we would like to use the load balancing…

                            • Create new block/allow rules for URLs from Web Usage Report

                              When viewing the Web Usage Report, it would be nice if we could click on a URL in the report and create new rules for that domain. For example, a domain is being blocked due to category but I want to make an exception for it, or perhaps I want to add exceptions for users' overrides, or I see a domain being passed that I want to permanently block.

                              • Full Hyper-v Support

                                This feature request http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/188819-support-drivers-for-hyper-v notes that drivers have been developed for hyper-v but hyper-v is not yet a fully supported platform for Sophos. Hyper-v is now a main stream hypervisor used by 90% of our SMB clients therefore it should be a supported platform. I submitted a support request with tech support for ongoing NIC issues i'm having with UTM on Hyper-v and was just directed to the link above with the note that it is not yet supported.

                                    In need of Wake On Lan through SSL VPN connection. We have tried several ways but the only one that works is to push the command _/usr/sbin/ether-wake -i eth0 88:51:fb:x:x:x_ from the cli. Our customer has very basic knowledge an we need a more simple and automatic _if possible_ way to use WOL from SSL VPN.

                                        • add greylisting by domain region or extension

                                          The greylisting is currently all or nothing but recently, we have received several spam marketing campaigns using EU domains. Our company does do business a little with EU domains so the effect of greylisting would not be a big deal for EU but, if I were to turn this on for everything, it would impact us. Regional or granular greylisting would be a helpful addition for fighting temporary spam domains.
