  1. RED : Service based option to manage traffic from RED to UTM

    I would love to see an option where i can choose internet traffic to go from local internet line rather then RED IPSec tunnel to UTM to reduce bandwidth load on upload tunnel.
    A service based option where we can divert traffic for example HTTP, SMTP to use local internet line where red is connected and DNS, DHCP, FTP to use RED tunnel going towards UTM.

    • display the IP addresses of each interface in the dashboard

      It would be nice to see all IP addresses of an interface in the dashboard. So it will be easier to view the actual public IP.

        • IKEv2 support

          We would like to see IKEv2 support so that we can connect to Azure.

          Otherwise this will be a deal breaker and we will be forced to use other appliances very soon.

            • Block google inappropiate images

              The Google Safe Search is totally inadequate in a school environment, particularly when searching images. Does Sophos have a solution for controlling inappropriate images on the internet/Google Images. With Google Safe Search on you can go to Google Images and search for anything inappropriate and find it. I Sophos does not have a solution for this are they likely to be implementing something very soon, as I can’t see schools using their UTM if they don’t have a solution for this.

              • add internet speed test to support tools

                Add an internet speed test (using something like speedtest-cli or a nagios check_speedtest-cli) to the management interface support tools. This check should bypass DPI, IPS/IDS, AV, etc. so users can tune the security services for optimal protection and speed. This could also be used as a reference when setting up QoS or even as variables in QoS settings as internet traffic speeds often are increased without user knowledge and the current QoS bandwidth settings are static. Periodically check internet speeds and report in the network graphics and executive reports.

                • load balancer

                  The server load balancing currently in ASG 9.3 works great on our internal/private network. I attempted to make it publicly accessible and failed. Sophos support just informed me the load balancer can only be used on a private network. They've stated dnat can not be used with the load balancer to load balance publicly accessible servers. I suggest this feature be added to a future release.

                  • When a virus is detected in memory, there is no information in SEC about process.

                    When a virus is detected in memory, there is no information in SEC about process.

                    In local log file there is something like
                    Process "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe" belongs to virus/spyware 'Troj/VundoMem-A'.
                    where (in this case) complete command line is
                    "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe" "C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\sfc_os2.dll",NRQOR

                    When virus is cleaned in memory there are information about process ID:
                    Process "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe:pid:0000085c" has been cleaned

                    With this information we located the process (had get process list before cleaning) and found complete command line.
                    That let us to locate sfc_os2.dll file, than sophos doesn't detect as virus at that moment.

                    I sugest two items:
                    - Log more information about process…

                              • SUM web excep

                                It would be extremely helpful to create whitelists in the SUM>Configuration>Web Filtering>Exceptions that can be deployed to the UTMs and then assigned to groups. The UTM has the functionality, however since the exception list is pushed from the SUM it isn't editable. If the SUM would import the groups and allow the list to be deployed with the options currently in the UTM this would make life a lot easier in keeping up with whitelists/exceptions across multiple UTMs.

                                    • Changes in Voucher Creation

                                      Setting the field "comment" in voucher creation as a required field because it is important to be filled with the guest’s name in order to assign it to. Additionally to hide the field “delete” for all authorized voucher creators except for Sophos administrators.

                                      • Allow notifications to be sent to different recipients.

                                        At the moment it is only possible to send all notifications to the same email recipients. It would be good to have the ability to customise each alert with its own set of recipients, then we can filter notifications to the relevant support team.

                                        • Add the ability for end users who log in to the portal to have similar search functionality as an admin has.

                                          Admin's can search the Quarantine bucket as well as Mail Logs and Queues. End users who pop into their portal view only get a static view of their "Blocked' Messages. This grid is not filterable, resizeable or searchable. It should be.

                                          We've only been using the product for about a month and I personally have 142 pages of blocked content. Which makes it difficult to locate a message that was quarantined by mistake. A search would make this 100x easier and more useful.
