  1. Allow traffic counters to be set based on device group

    Please allow us to set a global policy for data usage or at device group level, as we have a number of devices I have to set each phone with its relevant data usage allowance, when every phone in the group has the same I could specify it on the group and then if set at phone level its set by exception.

    • Automated GEO-Fencing reports for locatable devices.

      A Client has a need to generate an automated report that confirms the geo-location of each device at a set interval. For example a report that states where each enrolled, track-able, device was on the hour through a 24 hour period.

      • Web Appliance: Granular Help desk role options

        It would be fantastic to have the ability to lock down each section inside of Web Appliance so that certain activities could be delegated to Junior Admin staff (such as only the ability to add entries to Local site list in Group policy section or only access to specific option into the Policy configuration, etc.), without exposing the entire configuration of the WSA to them.

        • Regular Expression Blocking on firewall

          Regular expression blocking should be available in firewall rules.
          Firewall rule blocking only allows to match DNS Host and DNS Group.

          Today i encountered an issue where i put firewall rule to deny requests from semalt.com to reach to our web servers. They start sending the requests to semalt.semalt.com with a different ip. So, i have to do that manually as well.

          Firewall rules should have the ability to block from regular expressions which allows a user to deny anything that comes or before "Semalt.com"

                • SMTP RCPT TO response time should be faster

                  Apparently, major email carriers and email filtering companies are starting to move to a more aggressive timeout for RCPT TO and other SMTP responses. For one, McAfee (MXLogic) uses a default of 60 seconds for RCPT TO timeouts. The RFC is for five minutes (300 seconds), but they apparently ignore this.

                  To keep up with these changes, the UTM should be able to provide RCPT TO responses in under 60 seconds, at least when address verification is turned off (ideally all the time). Problems with receiving emails from people that use major carriers like McAfee makes Sophos look bad, even…

                  • 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.

                    • Admin override of web filtering

                      On the web filtering "blocked content" page there should be a button for an admin to log in and allow access/download the page or file being blocked.

                        • Allow more detailed modifying of UTM WAF rules and behaviour. (ModSecurity function)

                          UTM preventing some internet traffic going to e.g. apache linux servers due to escaping of the \ which is required for all systems to be able to identify a character such as $ or @.
                          When this happens using multiple layers of backslash escaping, Sophos treats this as an SQL Injection. There is currently no way of modifying this behaviour legally, and you need to enter SQL Injection Bypasses on particular pages on your Apache hosted site, which is not optimal.

                          Giving end user some more power on what should and should not be captured via an advanced profile option,…

                                      • Add configurable request header field for reverse proxy into webadmin

                                        Browser generate sometimes for services like ADFS very big request headers.

                                        It would be great if you can implement such a editable field in webadmin.

                                        One issue is described in the following threat.

                                        • Put all Remote Access>Client Options under Remote Access>%VPN type%>%Remote Access Profile%

                                          The reason for this is to allow different domains and DNS settings per VPN profile. This allows for companies with odd networking setups, like a single internet access point for multiple domains on different servers, to use the same Sophos UTM for VPN traffic and authentication.
