  1. Social Media Filtering Category

    Adding a Social Media/Networking as a built-in category for the SWA. We are getting increasing pressure to be able to manage traffic to social networks, but our SWA has no easy way to do that, since there is no built-in category for it.

    • Sophos UTM Manager: Call of SSH (UTM) over SUM

      Connect from SUM with SSH over a HTML5 VPN to an UTM.
      Similar to the existing WebAdmin call.
      And don't forget the auto login as root user.

          • search across ALL Logs as single search

            Need to be able to search all logs in a single search effort. When attempting to troubleshoot an attack or UTM problem a Wild Card or other search of all logs would best serve the troubleshooting process. Need controls of All Logs in day increment as searching all logs forever would be time consuming versus a aid to the daily / weekly troubleshooting process.

            • Allow multiple networks for Masquerade Rules

              We have dozens of RED devices. Adding individual NAT Masquerade Rules is very tedious when you can only select a SINGLE source object per rule. Would be nice to have a single Masquerade rule with multiple sources so I could just add either a new Network definition to the existing rule.

                • Improving health checks for server load balancing

                  We recently switched from a Kemp load balancer to using the built-in Server Load Balancing feature on Sophos UTM. A big feature we are now missing is the ability to do a http/https get/return health check that allows us to specify a path and look for specific text to be returned to determine if a real server is up or down.

                  A second feature missing is the ability to quickly disable a real server in server load balancing. Instead we have to set the weight to 0 and disable/enable the server load balancing rule to stop request going to the…

                  • default expressions

                    I would suggest that a default expressions list is implemented for the anti spam features of the UTM. I think a default list of expressions (especially pornographic or vulgar) that you can either enable as a whole or individually would be a good idea. I am currently in the process of listing multiple expressions that would have no business existing inside of a professional email and would like to see obvious offensive words able to be blocked by default.

                      Make it possible to disable encryption algorithms.
                      The WAF accept weak RC4 algorithms it would be nice if we could disable them.

                      • Microsoft Operations Manager Management Pack

                        It would be fantastic if you could provide a Management Pack for Microsoft Operations Manager (currently Version 2012 R2) to centrally monitor UTM appliances and other Sophos products. Dashboard, Alerts (DoS, Portscans, etc.), State of components (Webfilter, VPNs, etc.), Capacity Management (Load, Usage), etc.

                        • Expand statistic for bridge concerning underlying hardware

                          If you use bridges with more than two interfaces or multiple bridged vlans, it would be great to know the statistic for services and bandwidth for the involved single hardware-interface!

                                  • Introduce fail-over thresholds

                                    When you have two interfaces configured in active/standby mode, and your active interface experiences intermittent issues, the UTM will rapidly flick between the active and standby interfaces. This can cause connections to continuously drop, depending on how frequent the issues with your active connection are.

                                    It would be helpful if there was a threshold to the failover, for example allowing me to state "If active down, failover to standby. When active up, wait for $x continuous minutes of uptime before resuming use of that interface". This allows the device to handle connectivity issues in a more graceful way.

                                      • Don't Keep Write Ahead Logs (WALs) in Non-clustered Installations

                                        By default, the Sophos UTM (Astaro) PostreSQL configuration is configured with High Availability (HA) settings enabled irrespective of whether a HA license is installed and/or two or more devices are installed. One of these settings, wal_keep_segments, has been set to a value of 100 ever since Sophos UTM version 9.100-16 and since each Write Ahead Log (WAL) segment is 16MB, this results in a extra 1.6GB of disk space being consumed unnecessarily. The default value for wal_keep_segments is 0 and setting it to this value before starting the PostgreSQL service prevents it from keeping any new WAL segments. I have…
