    • Better reporting on webfilter (Reasonon for block)

      First I see a similar suggestion is already posted and marked completed pointing to policy violators. But it does not really help much.

      Problem: Go to "Web protection reports" Choos the "Categories" reports.
      There it shows multiple categories that are not supposed to be blocked.
      Drilling down to a category that is not to be blocked, example for us "Travel" . Here pick the Reporting Direction "Urls", "Select this view" find one that says "Blocked" on this category. For us we se many legit sites here from time to time. Where action is blocked and Reason is "--". So no…

      • iphone and andriod UTM management app

        It would be nice to be able to monitor and receive certain alerts from UTM from a phone, without having to navigate to the web interface.

        The app could have

        * NIC status 24 hours
        * IPS alerts
        * CPU load - space - ram - etc
        * current in out speeds
        * remote users
        * and many more

        The app could be just view only for security reasons and also utilized one time auth for installation.

        • MDM based access through Reverse Proxy

          With MDM (as a service) being connected to a UTM it would be good to be able to set up a Reverse Proxy (WAF) profile as counterpart. I.e.: only devices allowed by MDM may pass to ActiveSync.

          This way it would not be necessary to set up a dedicated machine for this task and DNAT rule (and you can still use 443 for other webservers as well on the same IP).

          This way UTM and MDM would benefit (UTM being more value to MDM SaaS customers). This will greatly emphasize Sophos product interconnection.

              • let admin disable „Sophos Outlook Add-in“ in User-portal like all the other Apps.

                The UTM-Admin can disable unused items with "Disable Portal Items".
                All items but "Sophos Outlook Add-in".

                • SMTP Flood Protection

                  If using UTM as a smart host, the Mail Protection should be able to halt mail flow if an SMTP address is sending an unusually high amount of e-mail. Recently had an issue with this and had to wipe out the UTM as it queued up over 500000 messages from a single user (due to virus).

                    • DHCP/WiFi: enable transfer of connected wireless clients or DHCP leases to MAC address white/black-lists

                      When setting up a new WiFi it can be quite a hurdle to enter every clients MAC address manually. This process is also very error prone.

                      It would be way easier to connect all clients without MAC filter, create a MAC address list from all connected clients and then restrict WiFi access to that list.
                      The same would also be nice for the DHCP leases list.

                      • Failover SXL lookups to Smart Filter Cache

                        SXL lookups regularly fail due to issues with the the Sophos service, the virtual host the service is running on or simply just networking issues local to the UTM.

                        As the technology already exists to use an offline file then why not simply have an SXL fail over to the local categories. For example, if there was no response to an SXL lookup in 15 seconds failover to the local cache for the next 5 min.

                        This way there should never be any downtime in the service which either leaves a customer unable to browse the web or allows a…

                        • URL Redirection

                          It would be great if it would be possible to redirect certain URLs

                          www.company.com => www.company.ch/site1
                          www.company.com/site1 => www.company.com/newsite

                              The feature is available on many home routers, but seems to be missing from the UTM which now controls both my work and home networks.

                              It is really nice to be able to import a hosts file such as the one referred to here:

                              This allows all attached devices to be able to block various ads and other malicious content really easily. In implementation, it would be nice to be able to either cut and past the desired hosts file into a textbox or perhaps to import a new hosts file. Perhaps the user modified one would be a…

                                • Allow customizable block pages for WAF

                                  Currently the WAF displays a generic HTTP status page (403 "Authentication required") for errors and blocked actions. This really break the general look and feel of the product as they feature no branding whatsoever.

                                  It would be very nice if these pages feature the same style as the status pages in the rest of the UTM (Email, Web), and if we could offer similar customizability for them.

                                  This will work two-fold: On the one hand it will make the generic blockpages prettier and more attuned to the rest of the product, and at the same time it will allow organizations…

                                        • Create a way to set the DF (Don't Fragment) flag and create a place to change the MSS (Maximum Segment Size)

                                          These are two very important features for a lot of customers that are currently using a Cisco products and migrating to a Sophos and then loose the ability to adjust these items. Support for PMTU Discovery and ECN just don't cut it for some applications.
