  1. Set backup run time

    With the automatic backups currently you cannot specify the time that the backup runs.
    Could this be added to standardise when the backups are run as they currently run at random times between UTM's.

            • limit Anti-Portscan notifications to one per Minute

              currently with the "limit Logging" setting you limit notifications to 1 per second. This leads to massive Notification Emails sometimes.

              I'd like to have one Notification with a summary of the attac once in a minute or even better once in 10 minutes

              • Bradford Integration

                Hello,

                We have many customers who are experiencing issues with the integration between Bradford and Sophos.

                To be able to run a Sophos scan they are required to have admin priveledges and this is not an option for all users.

                Bradford have requested we also raise a case with you after contacting them, To pursue your co-operation with them to work together and sort out a fix for this issue.

                Regards,

                Jordan Richmond

                Khipu Networks.

                • Ability to Export Private keys in 9.201 and above

                  Prior to the release of 9.201 you were able to download both the public and private key of internal users under mail encryption. As of 9.201 you can't, the option was removed. I have had 2 examples to date that I would need the ability to download the private key.

                  1. Need it for use in a 3rd part software. A client that used encryption used PGP desktop and encrypted the email and attachments that were then attached to an email and sent off. The firewall can not decrypt this type of email and therefore it came through undecrypted. We…

                  • Endpoint Protection via MSI

                    Can't believe that an 'Enterprise' grade product doesn't have the ability to push install the Endpoint client via MSI.

                    Definitely a big issue.

                    Please can we have this?

                      • allow an unused interface to be configured as a SPAN port.

                        This will allow for additional threat and network monitoring. For example, as an MSSP partner, we have had great success selling UTM along with another partner's IDS. Though the IPS functionality of the UTM is great, as it is sitting inline processing, it cannot do quite as deep a dive into the packets. Having IDS *plus* IPS has been fantastic in detecting threats and using that information to inform the UTM.

                        • 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…

                          • Port forwarding/NAT configuration wizard

                            Currently, it is a time consuming nightmare for an admin, especially one new to Sophos, to configure port forwards. Doing something as simple as opening Port 80 for a web server, that would also be accessible from the LAN, is needlessly complicated. It might be nice to have powerful features in the GUI, but something should be done to make this common task more intuitive. On an old Linksys router, this is an intuitive, 3 minute task. I'm assuming most end users are not configuring port forwards every day, which means they are not experts, and it needs to be…

                            • Add an option on application control rule to execute either before or after web filter

                              By default application control rules are executed after web filtering and once a URL is blocked by webfiltering, application control is no longer executed. It would be nice if we can specify whether an application control rule is executed before or after web filtering. This would be useful if you want to let's say block all media streaming sites except Youtube. So all I have to do is create a web filtering rule to block media streaming category and create a application control rule to allow YouTube and have it execute before web filtering. This way I don't have to…

                              • Make onboard OTP usable for special virtuell webserver

                                At the Moment we can use the new OTP Feature just for all virtuell webserver. Therefore, it is not possible to use this great new function in most implementations.

                                An example, many customers want to publish Exchange Services like OWA, ActiveSync and Outlook Anywhere. OWA with OTP and ActiveSync without OTP. But that is not possible.

                                I suggest, you implement a new authentication Profile for OTP that we can use in the site path Routing.

                                  • encrypt a message released from quarantine

                                    Make it so a message that is released from quarantine could be encrypted

                                    For instance, outbound message has credit card numbers in it, so it is quarantined. The Admin see this and knows the email must go through, but it should be encrypted, so encrypt then release.

                                    • ability to block/drop mail from blacklisted senders?

                                      there is no such option for this, except option to drop spam/confirmed spam alltogether, which we dont want.
                                      we still want to see/check what's coming in, except for those sender's already on the blacklist - they still go into quarantine however wich makes no sense except to make the quarantine log harder to work with.
                                      thanks!

                                      • Detailed process usage log

                                        Problem: I have spikes in CPU usage at random times that cause outages in phone service. There is no way, that I know of, to determine what caused these spikes.

                                        Solution: Log snapshots of all Process's running, along with other information that can be used to determine cause of high CPU spikes. This would allow users to look back and see what process were running and what they were doing to cause a CPU/memory spike.

                                        • User-defined field for DynDNS

                                          My idea: DynDns field for user-defined Update-URL to use all DynDNS providers and Features like MX-Record and A-record.

                                          So it is not necessary, to put all DynDNS providers in the choise field.
