      • Wireless Protection: MAC-Filter based on vendor

        There are several customers who want to allow wireless access only to specific vendors. So it would be great when the MAC filter on a WiFi would only check the first six characters in the list (for example: Kyocera 00:14:60).

            • SMTP - Allow use of regular expressions within Exceptions

              We are currently allowed to add exceptions using host network, sender, or recipient. It would be great to be able to trigger an exception based on regular expression as well. My example is this, I had a user try to send an attachment that was flagged for Data Protection due to the content in his attachment. His attachment contained no PPI, but was flagged anyway due to the format of some of his invoice numbers. It would be great if I could allow a user to skip data protection based on a keyword inserted into a message if the user…

              • Add the ability to limit outgoing emails (Relay Host, not User)

                We are using the relay host feature. If a Mailserver or a Client of the Mailserver is compromised there should be a LImit to configure at the UTM to prevent flooding of the SMTP Spool and /var/storage Partition. I suggest a Parameter configurable to set a Limit of Mails per allowed relay host ip.
                I saw in the Support Forum, that many users had this problem.
                There's no possibilty in the WebGUI to bulk erase lot's of Mails in Mail Manager. If a System is spooling more than apx. 10000 Mails the UTM should be able to block at the…

                    • allow DNS-Group Objects in Webserver Protection Access List

                      Hello,

                      i really love your Access-List for the Site-Path-Routing in the Webserver-Protection Area, which comes with 9.3 i think. . We are able to put in Networks here, which works like a charm. But:
                      We would like to add a DNS-Group here, too. Its a bunch of clients from differents subnets, simply put together to a dns-group. (it 's the same object as the "supportaccess.sophos.com " DNS Group.

                      I would like to block a similar DNS Group (of course not the support-access-Group) with the access-list feature from the webserver protection.

                      thank you

                      • Web Protection: Browser authentication without popups

                        The UTM should avoid open a popup that keeps the user authenticated. This kind of action is always blocked by the main browsers in their default configuration.

                        The system should intercept the request, ask for user+pass, and show the "authenticated as" screen only. It may try to open the requested website in a popup or through a target _blank link, but the main screen should stay opened with the logout button always available.

                        Today the current method doesn't work on a large setup when a customer can't control how their users' browsers are configured.

                          • Web Warn Action - prompt on every visit

                            I really like the new Warn action introduced in 9.2. However I think it would be great if there was an option to be able to warn the user on every visit to a site.

                            A working example is we want to warn users when accessing cloud storage sites. It will display a custom disclaimer written by our compliance team telling them what they can and can't do on the site if they proceed.

                            Currently it warns the user on the first visit only and never again. Should the user go against what is in disclaimer, they could claim they…

                            • Additional fields in syslog messages - allow correlation with other logs

                              For "reverseproxy" syslog messages, please include enough details to uniquely match the UTM's logs with other device logs (upstream firewalls, netflow, real webserver logs, etc).

                              The current log doesn't include the local IP and port used by the UTM to make the request of the real web server and it doesn't record the source port used by the true client. This makes it hard to differentiate multiple requests coming from a single NAT IP address

                              The resulting log would look like this:

                              srcip='1.2.3.4' # existing
                              srcport # add this to record the source port used by true client
                              localip='9.8.7.6' #…

                                • Content filter action with no exceptions

                                  It would be a useful thing to be able to create a Filter Action that can be tagged with a parameter like "No Exceptions Apply", so that the global exceptions defined in "Filtering Options" do not apply to that specific Filter Action. This would allow the creation of a very tightly controlled filter action for specific groups.

                                  • 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.

                                    • S/MIME Certificate History

                                      Currently it is only possible to add one s/mime certificate to an internal user. If this certificate expires I have to replace this certificate with a new one. I have to replace this certificate exact on these expiration date. If I replace the certificate before expiration I can be possible that I receive encrypted emails but I can encrypt the mails because the certificate is replaced. If I replace the certificate after expiration the signature and encryption is wrong. So my Suggestion is to add a Certificate history for internal users to solve this issue.

                                      • system auto update in email appliance

                                        this is the request from Platinum customer. They would like to be able to disable the auto update in Configuration > System > Updates, so they will have more control on the system version.
