  1. SPX

    Now that UTM 9.2 supports outgoing SPX email encryption i'd like it to also offer the same recipient self registration portal for password management based on user similar if not exactly the same as the existing Sophos Email Appliance.

    I think this would get many of my clients with existing firewall/vpn infrastructure who are also looking for email encryption off the fence and buy into the UTM. Unfortunately the encryption piece as it stands now is a bit tedius and isn't as user friendly as it could be

    • Server Load Balancing: Alternate internal port than external

      Just like NAT allows, let us choose an alternate port to redirect traffic to on the internal servers. Right now, whatever is external is internal, and it forces us to use NAT which kills any option to have high-availability and load balancing.

      • Implement a console type interface into the UTM for controlling the endpoints.

        The UTM endpoint protection should have a way to view the quarantine items on the endpoints and authorise or clean what it has discovered. If the application is to be authorised there should be a way to auto add this directly to the exceptions policy. The ability to run a scan of the endpoint from the UTM should also be included. Currently the UTM implementation of the endpoint protection is more like a notice than a central management point, meaning the admin has to go to the machines in question (either physically or with a remote connection) to investigate the…

          • Active Directory backed groups to be usable in the Firewall configuration

            We require the Active Directory backed groups to be usable in the Firewall configuration. In our environment we have a secure data centre housing our customers servers. Our support manager or IT team assign rights to individual members of staff on a ticket by ticket basis for access to various parts of the hosted environments. For example one support ticket may require Remote Desktop access, whereas another may
            require SQL server access.

            We have configured the relevant rules in the UTM to allow people in a specific AD group to connect to the Remote Desktop ports over the VPN. The…

              • 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…

                • SPX encryption: configure the minum password length from now fixed 8 characters to other (higher) values for generated one-time passwords

                  -->
                  I wish a new additional password length field in the GUI in the first tab „SPX Configuration“ of SPX Encryption for passwords of the type "Generated one-time password for every email", where I can configure longer passwords, which means longer minimum password lengths. E.g. 16 characters.

                  Background:

                  The sophos utm then by default generates passwords with a length of 8 characters.

                  Today, this insecure, when the attacker uses a brute force method with special GPU computers.
                  It may be cracked within less than 1 day.

                  The password length, that I can configure on the first tab „SPX Configuration“ of…

                  • Add a spam score for domain age

                    A lot of the spam that is getting through our current mail filtering is coming from .US domains that are less than an hour old (definitely less than a day). Since blacklisting works when something is known to be bad, this class of spam is harder to hit as the domains are still wearing diapers.

                    Any chance of having a score that checked the domain registration date? If it were weighted high on our system, I would've been spared seeing my last dozen spammy offers for car insurance, russian brides and bogus gift cards from Amazon, JC Penny(their spelling, not…

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

                      For example:

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

                      • DHCP on RED

                        I think it would be great if we have an option to move the DHCP server for RED networks from the UTM to the RED device. This would allow normal LAN access (e.g. file and print sharing) at the remote site even with a disconnected or outage on your uplink.

                          • 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.

                              • Use SUM as Log Server/Archive

                                It would be very helpful if I could use a SUM Server as Remote Log File Archive. With this feature I could centralize all Logs of all my UMT's. A addon feature to search in e.g. Webfilter Logs of multiple UTM's at the same time would also be very nice!
                                And if I do complex searches or log files are very big, the load will move away from productive UTM's.

                                Thanks in advance,
                                Pascal

                                • Web Appliance: Granular Help desk role options

                                  It would be fantastic to have the ability to lock down each section inside of Web Appliance so that certain activities could be delegated to Junior Admin staff (such as only the ability to add entries to Local site list in Group policy section or only access to specific option into the Policy configuration, etc.), without exposing the entire configuration of the WSA to them.

                                    Show username in FlowMonior from the dashboard.
                                    It's usefull to view the client, the bandwith usage but also the username due to understand who generate some kind of traffic.

                                    • SMTP RCPT TO response time should be faster

                                      Apparently, major email carriers and email filtering companies are starting to move to a more aggressive timeout for RCPT TO and other SMTP responses. For one, McAfee (MXLogic) uses a default of 60 seconds for RCPT TO timeouts. The RFC is for five minutes (300 seconds), but they apparently ignore this.

                                      To keep up with these changes, the UTM should be able to provide RCPT TO responses in under 60 seconds, at least when address verification is turned off (ideally all the time). Problems with receiving emails from people that use major carriers like McAfee makes Sophos look bad, even…

                                      • Admin override of web filtering

                                        On the web filtering "blocked content" page there should be a button for an admin to log in and allow access/download the page or file being blocked.

                                        • SMTP - More than one Data Leak Policy (DLP)

                                          To allow more than trigger/action to the SMTP Data Protection so:

                                          SPX Encrypt an email because the header had something like "Securely marked" in it

                                          AND

                                          Have the ability to reject any emails containing confidential information that you didn't want leaked such as national insurance number.
