  1. Power supply failure logging and notifications

    For UTMs with dual power supplies, a single PSU failure is indicated via audible alarm and blinky light.It would be great to have this condition logged, and to have a new notification category. This way customers could parse logs/messages/traps and catch failure conditions quickly vice relying on audio/visual cues.

    • sandstorm pop3

      Hi, I have booked for much money sandstorm and am very disapointed not supported the pop3 is. We have our Exchange Server behind the firewall and pick up the mails with popcon, which works very well.

      In the German SOPHOS sales documents is: "Decken potentially harmful behaviors on all your end user devices and all critical infrastructure on. These include your operating system (Windows, Mac OS X and Android), physical and virtual hosts, services, network infrastructure and Web -, mail-, file - and mobile applications.

      • Hotspot redirect for clients starting with HTTPS pages

        When using the hotspot functionality of Sophos Wifi units, users should be redirected to an agreement page, no matter what site they try going to. This works properly if the connecting user is attempting to load an HTTP page, but if the first page they happen to load is an HTTPS page, the page simply times out. This makes the HotSpot feature almost unusable, as a majority of webpages are now HTTPS. There is already a suggestion for this from several years ago, that said it would be released in version 9.3 which it has not. That is why I…

        • HTML5 VPN Portal: Copy and Paste from Local Machine to Remote and from Remote to Remote

          Please add the feature for the copy and paste from local machine to HTML5 session. It would also be nice to allow copying from HTML5 session to another HTML5 session.

          • SMTP Proxy reply to an Exchange Distribution group

            A more flexible management of Mail Protection notifications sent by the UTM, as there is an issue at the moment, if an e-mail is Sent As an Exchange distribution group to a non-existing user, the reply from UTM is delivered to the group e-mail, thus all members of the group receive the NDR not the Original sender or the owner of the group.

            • Add the ability to use a Network Group for User Portal and Remote Access

              Allow Network Groups to be used for both the User Portal and Remote Access VPN at the below locations. This need is due to having more than one circuit. When we have more than one circuit, we want to be able to allow 1 Public IP on each circuit to listen, however due to the current design, this is not possible.

              User Portal->Advanced tab->Network Settings
              Remote Access->SSL->Settings tab->Interface address

              Thank you,

              • Mail Security: Quarantine Mail Attachment handling

                Instead of the actual crypto locker problems, we need a feature to route a quarantined mail to the user but the utm should remove the attachment with an info, that the attachment can be released only by an admin.

                • Email Quarantine Report

                  Increase the number of available Email Quarantine Report scheduled times or have the F/W email users as their messages are quarantined.
                  Having the quarantine report emailed twice daily causes issues with time critical emails, if they are stopped as false positive.

                      • IPv6 SSO in STAS

                        Currently the STAS implementation only supports IPv6, when you enter an IP Address in the "Networks to be monitored", an error message of "Invalid Network IP" is thrown.

                        This is preventing a native IPv6 rollout as we are unable to apply user based rules to IPv6 traffic (as no users are authenticated...).

                        • Accept own domain only from internal interfaces

                          There is a leak in the mail protection.
                          Whan a spammer connects to the UTM and uses our own domain as the sender, the UTM will not block the e-mail.

                          It would be nice to accept e-mails from our own domain only through internal interfaces and not the WAN interface.

                          • usability improvement

                            It would be great if we could use wildcards (*) for blocking sub-domains, i.e. *@*.*.whatever-domain.com.
                            For example, we do not want any e-mail from e-mail marketing service providers, such as MailChimp and alike, our blacklists are massive and keeping them up to date is a chore. We use UTM 9.403-4.
                            Maybe there is an easy way, but we are not aware of it. I am sure, those who are not very familiar with regular expressions would appreciate this feature.

                              • In Anti-Spam, Expression-check everything after DATA or include From

                                Currently, only the Subject field and the content of the email is checked. Well before V8, maybe in V6, we could add the email address of a departed employee to 'Expressions' to force emails to that person into quarantine.

                                In most organizations, emails within the organization won't transit the SMTP Proxy. An additional benefit would be that adding the domain would prevent outside emailers from spoofing an internal user in the From field. There is otherwise no mechanism to catch something like the following example that demonstrates a spoof of the company president ordering the treasurer to wire money:

                                telnet…

                                • allow WAN link failure to trigger failover in a HA cluster where separate WAN switches are in use

                                  Allow a WAN link failure based on an upstream ping to trigger a HA failover from Master to ***** SG nodes. This is to facilitate the loss of upstream WAN switches that are physically separate.

                                  • Pi-Hole

                                    I'd like to see Pi-Hole integrated into the UTM. Pi-Hole is an application that allows you to filter DNS requests based on settings you can set yourself. Its very light weight and should integrate very well within the UTM.

                                    • Specify order of DNS used by Request routing instead of Round robin.

                                      When configuring a request route, the ability to specify the primary, secondary and tertiary DNS would allow clients to control what the priority and order the UTM uses for each DNS.

                                      • Ability to expand Description column for Alerts in Sophos Central.

                                        The alert description column in Sophos Central is extremely truncated. Add the ability to Expand the columns to read the entire desc.

                                        • Configured country blocking rules via SUM.

                                          SUM allows for the configuration of firewall policies and rule set however it does not allow for the configuration and deployment of country blocking rules. Currently, you must configure country blocking by individual UTM.
