  1. In Anti-Spam, Expression-check everything after DATA or include From

    Currently, only the Subject field and the content of the email is checked. Well before V8, maybe in V6, we could add the email address of a departed employee to 'Expressions' to force emails to that person into quarantine.

    In most organizations, emails within the organization won't transit the SMTP Proxy. An additional benefit would be that adding the domain would prevent outside emailers from spoofing an internal user in the From field. There is otherwise no mechanism to catch something like the following example that demonstrates a spoof of the company president ordering the treasurer to wire money:

    • Email Quarantine Report

      Increase the number of available Email Quarantine Report scheduled times or have the F/W email users as their messages are quarantined.
      Having the quarantine report emailed twice daily causes issues with time critical emails, if they are stopped as false positive.

        • Expire date for firewall rules

          Firewall rules should have an optional expiry date. This is useful, if a firewall rule has only been approved for a certain period of time.

          With this feature the firewall admin no longer needs to schedule in a separate calendar the removal of a temporary rule and then perform a manual task.

          This results in a cleaner ruleset and less effort for the firewall admin.

            • Firewall Rules counter

              Add a feature that is common and very useful on most firewalls, The display of active counters on firewall rules. This is a quick and useful way to trouble shoot firewall rule issues.

              • Add more scheduling options for firmware updates.

                We manage hundreds of VFW's in our environment and cannot take the risk of running firmware updates weekly on all of them. Some are also global, so we may need to do them at different time schedules. It would be great if we could schedule them Monthly rather than weekly. Adding flexibility.

                  Currently we download the latest ISO of the UTM installer software and create CD's to boot from and install. Creating USB bootable media would be quicker, more efficient and more environmentally friendly

                  • show flexiport in the UTM graphic representation

                    When I install a flexiport extension, I can see the new interfaces in a list, but the picture of the UTM is not updated with the flexiport that has been installed and the status of its ports.

                    This improvement is only cosmetic, as it does not affect to normal function of the UTM, but I think it is important. It will make it clearer to customers and network administrators as they will see all the ports status in a single view.

                      • Ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels

                        I would like the ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels. For example, you can have account 1 able to unblock/whitelist and account 2 can perform updates etc. This would be great as you won't need to give out the admin password and no user will see or do anything they are not supposed to on the webadmin interface.

                            (issue since v4.9, worked w/o problems before)

                            UTMs openvpn.conf (changed IPs...):

                            leads to this ifconfig-command on the remote site (linux/openvpn) which fails:

                            when i change the "topology subnet" to "topology p2p" this ifconfig command is run on the client and everything works:

                                It is often more efficient to let the user install when it is convenient to them. Particularly when installing for the first time to remote users or using onsite support technicians without UTM access.

                                • Introduce a mechanism by which particular browsers, for example, Firefox may be blocked by the Sophos UTM.

                                  We are looking at Sophos UTM as a possible replacement for our current Microsoft 2010 TMG instance. Within The HTTP filter on TMG 2010 it was possible block content based on signatures within the request header. For example, to block Firefox, TMG 2010 could be configured to identify the Firefox user-agent within the request header and block it if need be.

                                    • MAC Address Definitions: Description fields in lists

                                      Create a field that describes each entry that is within MAC address definition list.

                                      In our case we've created a white-list for wireless devices and it currently appears as a large list of indistinguishable devices.

                                      A simple field tied to these addresses would improve management. Having the logs reference this field would also be a benefit as we currently have difficulties identifying the devices that are within our list when there is an issue.
