  1. Delete attachment out of Mail

    We would like to have the opportunity to delete a specified attachment out of the mail and not store in quarantine. This would be helpful for fake billings with ZIP-File attached

    • Remove support for TLS 1.0/Allow it to be disabled.

      PCI scans that see a remote access port open to the internet fail because the appliance still supports TLS 1.0. I have to dispute this every time, and it is a real hassle.

      • Sophos VPN app for mobile platforms

        Sophos should develop an own VPN app for mobile operating systems (iOS / Android / Windows Phone) which can connect via the UTM using the configuration pushed from the UTM to the SMC server.
        It should also support the Per-App-VPN feature which was introduced in iOS 7.

        • add a whitelist option to the user portal.

          It would be great to have a user portal section where users could be given the ability to manage exception list for their users as a global option. This way site managers could add sites to the exception list that everyone can access without having to involve their IT support or allow them to modify the UTM

          • 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…

              • VPN timeout for Windows and IOS clients

                I would think this would be something that would be a standard feature, but guess now. There should be a way to set a timeout on the VPN connection either users connected via laptops or iOS devices so they don't have to remember to go back in and manually turn off or disconnect their vpn connections when they are done, they end up staying connected forever and I see this as a security risk when they are connected in to our network from the outside.

                Please add a simple timeout feature for SSL VPN connections.

                • 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.

                  • Mails that are Blocked by SPF should be able to move to quarantine instead of blocking and should apear in the quarantine report.

                    At the Moment Mails where blocked by SPF will be just blocked, but there are thousends of misconfigured mailservers out there, where just have a wrong spf configuration. it would be nice, if we could activate a function wicht not blocks a mail while spf check failure but put it in to the quarantine, so that the user have it in his quarantine report and release it or whitelist the Sender. It would niceley help a lot and would make a lot more Customers happy

                      • incorporate the username in the warning for too many failed login attempts for the UserPortal

                        It would be convenient to know what username was used for the excessive failed attempts in order to help people who can't get in. It would also be useful to gather the most common failed brute force usernames.

                              • 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.

                                • Allow notifications to be sent to different recipients.

                                  At the moment it is only possible to send all notifications to the same email recipients. It would be good to have the ability to customise each alert with its own set of recipients, then we can filter notifications to the relevant support team.

                                    • Notify the external sender when SOPHOS UTM blocks an E-Mail

                                      A customer want to have the the following Feature.

                                      An incoming E-Mail gets blocked by UTM because of an listed File extension.

                                      Now the UTM sends a Mail to the external sender that it has blocked the Mail be cause of an listed extesion. Maybe with a free text field for individual spellings.

                                        • user migration

                                          Customer would like to have a tool or utility to migrate local users on servers to the UTMs user database so basic auth through RA will work without having to import 400-500 users.
