  1. OCSP Stapling Support for WAF

    Please can you Support OCSP Stapling.

    The obvious advantage to OCSP Stapling is the improvement in
    speed and availability of the OCSP certificate status check.

    OCSP Stapling helps maintain the privacy of the end user, since a CA can see which web sites a user has visited (only those web sites that have certificates issued by the CA). If OCSP Stapling is used, the CA will see OCSP requests
    only from the web site, not the web site’s end users.

    Many wi-fi hotspots use Captive Portals to control access to the
    Internet, sometimes requiring entry of a credit card number…

    • Improvement on hotspot vouchers: device numbers and better cutting lines

      Hello,
      at the moment vuouchers does not show the number of devices that are allowed to connect using the passcode. I think It would be useful to add this information. We set 2 devices for each code, but users does not know this info and they often take 2 vouchers, 1 for laptop 1 for smartphone.

      Also the format of cutting lines should be improved. They should be smaller and positioned at the borders of page, not in the middle. We have some difficulties cutting them correctly and all of the same size.

      • UTM up2date proxy

        Would be great if a central UTM can act as a proxy for other UTM

        • PDF

          The Web protection report was exported to PDF.
          When copy and paste the contents of the PDF to text file, garbled occurs.

          It is hoped to be changed so as not to generate the garble.

          • Route All traffic from Endpoint to UTM Proxy (like TMG agent)

            At this moment (UTM 9.2), Sophos Authentication Agent have only one function - map IP and User.

            But TMG customers like to use a TMG agent, which can route all outbound traffic from host (not only http/s) to TMG proxy.

            If we will have such functionality, this will allow us:
            - have all traffic on UTM from host (even UTM not as Default GW).
            - use this agent for Terminal servers (separate different users by ranges of ports).

              • let us decide, if we want to block the Dropbox app or the Dropbox homepage

                Now automatically both features are blocked, but I just don't want the App on my system. I don't mind if the users use Dropbox via web page.

                • Integrate FIDO U2F as form of two factor authentication

                  We are heavily using Google Authenticator together with our UTMs but would like the ability to issue a user an open source hardware solution that can go on their key ring. Our power users tend to run out of battery life on phone while traveling and a device on a key chain would allow for ease of access and a knowledge that all users can get in and accomplish the important business items they take care of.

                  Our other solutions allow us to use something like a Yubikey Neo and gain access to everything no matter batter conditions.

                  Benefits:
                  No…

                  • Provide a service like Palo ALto's WildFire.

                    Auto upload any newly seen (For any and all Sophos firewalls across the globe.) executable, flash content, JavaScript, office document, etc. to Sophos for detention in some pre-configured VM's. Then, based on the determination of clean report it as clean and if malware report it as such and push new AV definitions out to Sophos boxes everywhere.

                    A detailed report of the new upload results should be sent to the sending firewall admin - clean or malware. Palo Alto does this and it is called WildFire. I have this at work and it allows the firewall to quickly block new…

                    • DNS Request Routing By Interface

                      Hey Everyone,

                      My corp has the same dns externally as externally (abc.com internal and abc.com external). We are using the protected wifi with an employee zone that does not have or need access to the internal network. But when those devices are using the utm as their DNS they inherently have access to the internal DNS. With this many services like outlook any where attempts routing to the internal network because it detects the internal DNS. So i would like to ask for DNS Request routing and have an option to select the interface that applies to. So i would…

                        • Check if Domain of sender is valid

                          Many DNS-Records do not have SPF enabled, so another checking option, like a whois if the given domain exists would be a nice feature to block spam without having to deal with as many false positives.

                              This feature is already possible today, though it requires use of either the per workstation authentication agent, or using the hotspot feature, authenticating it aganst your back-end servers.

                              Nonetheless, we are working on enhancements to user awareness, making this much easier to do, and this is planned for a major release sometime mid-2015. as such, I’ll mark this as Planned, though it is also already possible.

                              Currently in the list of email exception rules there is no way to bypass the Sender Blacklist list of email addresses or domains.

                              If like us you want to block all Facebook mail, and do this via blocking *@facebookmail.com,but still want to say your marketing/pr department to have access there is no way to create an exception. All the other AntiSpam categories are covered in the exceptions tab but not this one.

                                • Exception list for Application Control

                                  We recently switched to UTM9 & seem to be missing the following feature:

                                  We would like to block Youtube & Vimeo under Application Control but still allow a group of VIP users to use these applications.

                                  We have a group in Active Directory (and linked it under Users & Groups) where those users have been added to but there is no option/field under Application Control to add this group as exempted.

                                  Is this a possible feature for the future?

                                  • enable eliminating mediashift malware from browsers

                                    I have found no way with your system to remove the media shift malware. Can you do so?

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Mail Usage reporting: Differentiation between incoming and outgoing mails

                                          It would be helpful to have a differentation between incoming and outgoing mails in the Mail Usage reporting.
