  1. Clean Advertising (HTTP and HTTPS without Certificate)

    PFSense has a great package called SquidGuard that can be set to display a blank gif image instead of the default block page for advertising. This works extremely well with HTTP & HTTPS (No need to install a certificate). I am aware you can set a custom block page for advertising, but I have had no luck with this in XG. Also browsers like IE complain about revocation errors with XG when it filters HTTPS advertising, but PFSense just blocks it with no errors.

      The ability to upload individual licenses to all linked/connected UTMs through a single SUM instance/interface. In a scenario where a user might have 50+ UTMs connected a SUM, uploading licenses to all them can be a tremendous hassle.

        • Make all Features which were requested for UTM and now available on Copernicus also available for UTM

          If you follow up the new ideas for the past months all of them were requested for UTM but none of them are available. Every single idea was used to XG (Copernicus).

          This is abolutely inacceptable. Especially as the UTM license model is based on a ongoing subscription.

            • Disabled Emails security statistics - Have the UTM provide statistics and details for disabled features

              Have the UTM provide information regarding what enabling an email security feature would impact in an effort to justify and prepare for change.
              For example. If SPF is not enabled, process delivered mail and provide the domain list and count that would have failed the test allowing administrators to tune the setting and potentially notify the organisations prior to enabling the feature.
              This could then be used to recommend or justify that a setting be enabled

              • RED Device Internet Connection

                Currently if a RED Devices loses connectivity to the UTM the RED Device loses Internet connectivity.

                It would be most helpful, if there would be a way to keep the Internet Traffic in Split (Standard & Transparent) to continue to go straight out to to the Internet even if the UTM is not accessible.

                • Block IP's using Blacklist/Blocklist Service

                  Support the use of Blacklists/blocklists. Note that this feature was requested at link below and apparently Sophos thought that ATP would satisfy the need, however it does not provided the requested functionality, Therefore I am re-posting this as a new suggestion.

                  The old suggestion was marked as implemented by the ATP feature; however ATP is not what was wanted and generates too many false alerts. This is the prior feature request: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/1982075-network-security-block-malicious-botnet-bad-ip-s

                  Plain and simple: We want support for blocklists. Such as those found here: https://www.iblocklist.com. I would also like to specify a blocklist per network. So for example…

                        • Add Information in voucher

                          Hello

                          I wanted to know if it's possible to add information on voucher to identify the user connected with it.

                          In fact. Feature to add two fields or three (first name, last name, identity card number,...) and make these fields obligatory for the admin of the hotspot when generating voucher.

                          The most important functionality in hotspot must be identification and recognition of user. Because in case of illegal surf. We have to get log information about the guest.
                          With the actual hotspot, we can't know the user connected with the voucher.
                          Add information will be helpful in these situation

                          Best…

                                  It would be very useful if admins could force individual users to be logged out from the web appliance. This would help in cases where the authentication timeout is very long and the user has closed the captive portal window that allows them to log out.
                                  This can already be done from the backend

                                    • Enable/Disable loggong for all rules at once

                                      For all rules in Firewall and Application Control it would be great to have a button to disable or enable logging for all rules. Or even group wise.

                                      This way temporary debugging is made easy and otherwise the load is low on the machine.

                                      • Unequal Uplink Balancing

                                        Sophos need to introduce a better option for traffic shaping. If there are two wan links with unequal capacity. There is no way that you can avoid on link from choking.
                                        So far Sophos support connection ratio for uplink but a single connection can choke all the bandwidth of WAN Uplink.
                                        In order to restrict a host you need to define bandwidth pool and that is very convenient if you have 500 users.

                                        • spoof attack

                                          Working with Sophos support (case 5397031), the current product is not able to stop a spoof attack in which the "envelope from" is valid but the body sender address is spoofed as an internal address.

                                          SPF checks are not effective in this scenario and the message is delivered.
