  1. Add optional PIN entry field for two-factor authentication

    There are really two big issues I have with the two factor authentication implementation. The first is that no where in the setup for the user is there any information or instruction as how to use two factor authentication. Every other two factor authentication that I have used has had a separate box for putting in the random code. I only learned about how to properly use two factor authentication after calling support and being informed that I needed to append the randomly generated code to the end of my password to which I say "Really! and you arn't going…

    • SPX encryption: configure the minum password length from now fixed 8 characters to other (higher) values for generated one-time passwords

      -->
      I wish a new additional password length field in the GUI in the first tab „SPX Configuration“ of SPX Encryption for passwords of the type "Generated one-time password for every email", where I can configure longer passwords, which means longer minimum password lengths. E.g. 16 characters.

      Background:

      The sophos utm then by default generates passwords with a length of 8 characters.

      Today, this insecure, when the attacker uses a brute force method with special GPU computers.
      It may be cracked within less than 1 day.

      The password length, that I can configure on the first tab „SPX Configuration“ of…

      • Build security for SYSLOG on Sophos iView appliance

        We want to monitor customers UTM, but SYSLOG is not secure (not encrypted), so VPN is only solution to secure the syslog traffic from UTM to iView appliance. Maybe some secure protocol for this would be appreciated.

        • Connect SUM with Sophos iView Appliance or make SUM configure SYSLOG for all devices.

          Could be nice if the SUM is reinvented so that SYSLOG traffic is sent to SUM and the SUM can be connected to iView OR SUM can configure UTM's SYSLOGGING service to point all to Sophos iView appliance.

          • Unencrypted Hotspot Auth

            When using authentication over the WLAN Hotspot option the added Username and Password for the logon are not send encrypted.
            Other users in the WLAN can simple read out all passwords with Wireshark.

            • Websites Lists - Filter Actions

              Currently the Websites lists in a Filter Action is only available in one Filter Action. When you remove the Websites List it cannot be created with the same name across any of the filter actions.

              Ideally you should be able to totally remove a Websites List as well as assign the exact same Websites List (with all the same Websites and any future changes) to multiple Filter Actions. I would suggest this has significant benefit to large business; more specifically education. Schools want to be able to add a Website list to all students for block/allow but still keep individual…

              • DHCP on RED

                I think it would be great if we have an option to move the DHCP server for RED networks from the UTM to the RED device. This would allow normal LAN access (e.g. file and print sharing) at the remote site even with a disconnected or outage on your uplink.

                • add an option to enable or disable split tunneling for SSL VPN profiles

                  SSL VPN profiles is a cool feature which allows to differentiate between e.g. admins and homeoffice users. But there is an option missing in these profiles to enable or disable split tunneling. An Admin who knows what he is doing could be allowed for split tunneling but a homeoffice user instead who would work via ssl vpn and potentially also browse to infested websites could be disallowed for split tunneling. The global way with the "any" setting for the local server address is not enough. Additionally the setting shouldn't be overrideable on client side.

                  • Use SUM as Log Server/Archive

                    It would be very helpful if I could use a SUM Server as Remote Log File Archive. With this feature I could centralize all Logs of all my UMT's. A addon feature to search in e.g. Webfilter Logs of multiple UTM's at the same time would also be very nice!
                    And if I do complex searches or log files are very big, the load will move away from productive UTM's.

                    Thanks in advance,
                    Pascal

                    • to make it possible to send notifications if a VPN-Tunnel stays down more than 3-5 minutes.

                      I suggest you to make it possible to send notifications if a VPN-Tunnel stays down more than 3-5 minutes.

                      Because the actual status is that we get to much false positives.

                      • Microsoft Operations Manager Management Pack

                        It would be fantastic if you could provide a Management Pack for Microsoft Operations Manager (currently Version 2012 R2) to centrally monitor UTM appliances and other Sophos products. Dashboard, Alerts (DoS, Portscans, etc.), State of components (Webfilter, VPNs, etc.), Capacity Management (Load, Usage), etc.

                            • IP Ban/Black list (quickly accessible - dynamic)

                              Very very often there are random attacks (SMTP/WEB/SSH etc.) occurring from a certain hosts/bots - often small pool of random addresses.

                              It would be EXTREMELY handy if we could have a Quick-Access-Dynamic-Absolute-IP-Blacklist.
                              What would be even better is if we can create and maintain such lists per interface basis. (one for WAN, one for Internal1, one for Internal2 etc.)

                              No host definitions, no firewall rules, no network definitions, no timeouts, no application filter, nothing.

                              Just a plain simple, clean, one-click away, absolute IP ban/blacklist.

                                  • Report on which users have downloaded what files (executable files etc.)

                                    I would like a report that shows which users have download what file types (e.g. executables, videos etc.). Showing from where they were downloaded would be good to have as well.

                                    • extend the expression filter in smtp proxy to search in mail headers.

                                      In pre-filtered environments the previous mail server may alter some mail header to signal spam levels.
                                      Currently UTM doesn't use this information.
                                      Only a string check on the mail body/subject is possible.

                                      • POP3 Exception List for DNS Host

                                        I have subscribed to a email forum.
                                        All emails come from an IP address the forum server (email server) but because all the emails come from the subscribed users address. The Sophos UTM says all email is SPAM and quarantines them.
                                        You are able to add an exception for a DNS Host or Host but this is not processed.

                                        Please fix this functionality.
                                        Thanks
