      • URL Redirection

        It would be great if it would be possible to redirect certain URLs

        For example:

        www.company.com => www.company.ch/site1
        www.company.com/site1 => www.company.com/newsite

        Thank you :)

        • let admin disable „Sophos Outlook Add-in“ in User-portal like all the other Apps.

          The UTM-Admin can disable unused items with "Disable Portal Items".
          All items but "Sophos Outlook Add-in".

          • SMTP Flood Protection

            If using UTM as a smart host, the Mail Protection should be able to halt mail flow if an SMTP address is sending an unusually high amount of e-mail. Recently had an issue with this and had to wipe out the UTM as it queued up over 500000 messages from a single user (due to virus).

              • QoS for Virtual Webservers

                QoS / Throttling the upload for virtual webservers (Web Server Protection). It would be nice if you have many webservers, that you can throttle the upload for each "virtual server"

                exampe: - virtual webserver a (wan) unlimited upload to wan side
                - virtual webserver b (wan) limited upload 10mbit to wan side

                that would be realy nice, is it possible?

                • DHCP/WiFi: enable transfer of connected wireless clients or DHCP leases to MAC address white/black-lists

                  When setting up a new WiFi it can be quite a hurdle to enter every clients MAC address manually. This process is also very error prone.

                  It would be way easier to connect all clients without MAC filter, create a MAC address list from all connected clients and then restrict WiFi access to that list.
                  The same would also be nice for the DHCP leases list.

                  • Virtual Webserver - Wildcard SSL Import Domains

                    When using a wildcard SSL certificate, I would like the ability to import a list of domains on a virtual webserver. This is possible on a HTTP virtual webserver, but not when on the HTTPS one. We have a wildcard web development environment and have multiple servers with 50+ sub-domains on each server. Currenlty, we have to manually enter every single domain since the import functionality is not on the HTTPS virtual servers.

                    • Failover SXL lookups to Smart Filter Cache

                      SXL lookups regularly fail due to issues with the the Sophos service, the virtual host the service is running on or simply just networking issues local to the UTM.

                      As the technology already exists to use an offline file then why not simply have an SXL fail over to the local categories. For example, if there was no response to an SXL lookup in 15 seconds failover to the local cache for the next 5 min.

                      This way there should never be any downtime in the service which either leaves a customer unable to browse the web or allows a…

                      • Autonomous quota consumption (no user confirmation)

                        The new quota feature works great, but there is a big problem using quota on mobile devices. Having a media streaming quota configured you have to open a web browser and confirm the amount of time (quota) you want to use. That works fine on desktop, but on mobile IOS devices such requests in a browser gets redirect to a installed APP (You Tube) and you never have the chance to confirm the quota you want to use - as a consequence YouTube app does not have internet connectivity.

                                  • Add ability to edit and import a HOSTS file

                                    The feature is available on many home routers, but seems to be missing from the UTM which now controls both my work and home networks.

                                    It is really nice to be able to import a hosts file such as the one referred to here:
                                    http://winhelp2002.mvps.org/hosts.htm

                                    This allows all attached devices to be able to block various ads and other malicious content really easily. In implementation, it would be nice to be able to either cut and past the desired hosts file into a textbox or perhaps to import a new hosts file. Perhaps the user modified one would be a…

                                    • Safeguard Enterprise support for MySQL DB backend

                                      Would be great to see Sophos support utilising a MySQL DB backend for Safeguard Enterprise as is possible with Mobile Control.

                                      • Affichage des logs / Real-time log views

                                        Meilleure visibilité des logs en temps réel : C’est de la préhistoire cet affichage de fichiers texte dans une pop-up

                                        Improved visibility of logs in real time: The display text files in a pop-up is obsolete

                                        • quick block or allow

                                          Quick one click block or allow a site eg. (domain.com) for all users. this would be useful for a typical helpdesk technician to block or allow a site after identifying a site that is fit or unfit for viewing. This is particully useful in an education establishment where quick action is required
