  1. Unencrypted Hotspot Auth

    When using authentication over the WLAN Hotspot option the added Username and Password for the logon are not send encrypted.
    Other users in the WLAN can simple read out all passwords with Wireshark.

    • Websites Lists - Filter Actions

      Currently the Websites lists in a Filter Action is only available in one Filter Action. When you remove the Websites List it cannot be created with the same name across any of the filter actions.

      Ideally you should be able to totally remove a Websites List as well as assign the exact same Websites List (with all the same Websites and any future changes) to multiple Filter Actions. I would suggest this has significant benefit to large business; more specifically education. Schools want to be able to add a Website list to all students for block/allow but still keep individual…

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • add an option to enable or disable split tunneling for SSL VPN profiles

            SSL VPN profiles is a cool feature which allows to differentiate between e.g. admins and homeoffice users. But there is an option missing in these profiles to enable or disable split tunneling. An Admin who knows what he is doing could be allowed for split tunneling but a homeoffice user instead who would work via ssl vpn and potentially also browse to infested websites could be disallowed for split tunneling. The global way with the "any" setting for the local server address is not enough. Additionally the setting shouldn't be overrideable on client side.

            • to make it possible to send notifications if a VPN-Tunnel stays down more than 3-5 minutes.

              I suggest you to make it possible to send notifications if a VPN-Tunnel stays down more than 3-5 minutes.

              Because the actual status is that we get to much false positives.

              • 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.

                • Allow UTM to manage other sophos products

                  Id like to be able to manage all of our Sophos products, single pane manage. I like the UTM interface, it would be great if I could control web/mobile/antivirus all in the one place.

                    • 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.

                        • Outlook add-in Encrypt option

                          Is there a way to specify where the “Encrypt” button displays in Outlook 2007.
                          I have several users who click Encrypt by mistake thinking it is the send button.

                          • 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

                            • force encrypted email authentication

                              It would be helpful to activate encryption/authentication on a per-port base.
                              Port 25 (SMTP) won't allow AUTH prior to STARTTLS (for clients) but will work without encryption and authentication at all (for servers).
                              Port 465 (SMTPS): already encrypted.
                              Port 587 (SMTP-MSA) allows AUTH as it is already an encrypted transfer.

                              Mail clients should use 587, but if they use Port 25 they need to use STARTTLS.

                                I would like a report that shows which users have download what file types (e.g. executables, videos etc.). Showing from where they were downloaded would be good to have as well.

                                • extend the expression filter in smtp proxy to search in mail headers.

                                  In pre-filtered environments the previous mail server may alter some mail header to signal spam levels.
                                  Currently UTM doesn't use this information.
                                  Only a string check on the mail body/subject is possible.

                                  • POP3 Exception List for DNS Host

                                    I have subscribed to a email forum.
                                    All emails come from an IP address the forum server (email server) but because all the emails come from the subscribed users address. The Sophos UTM says all email is SPAM and quarantines them.
                                    You are able to add an exception for a DNS Host or Host but this is not processed.

                                    Please fix this functionality.
                                    Thanks

                                      • Allow traffic counters to be set based on device group

                                        Please allow us to set a global policy for data usage or at device group level, as we have a number of devices I have to set each phone with its relevant data usage allowance, when every phone in the group has the same I could specify it on the group and then if set at phone level its set by exception.

                                        • Automated GEO-Fencing reports for locatable devices.

                                          A Client has a need to generate an automated report that confirms the geo-location of each device at a set interval. For example a report that states where each enrolled, track-able, device was on the hour through a 24 hour period.
