  1. Adding filter for the recipient ("mail to")

    Please add filtering for recipient addresses (mail to).

    Currently the UTM (9.2) only can filter incomming mails for the "mail from" field.

    "mail to" is extremely usefull for blocking incomming spam/phishing at UTM level and not letting it pass to internal mail servers for verification.

    We have some old and some internal mail accounts and distribution lists that are only created for internal communication.

    Badly, the email adresses belonging to this accounts are public and gets tons of spam because we cant block them at the UTM right now.

    • Endpoint Protection via MSI

      Can't believe that an 'Enterprise' grade product doesn't have the ability to push install the Endpoint client via MSI.

      Definitely a big issue.

      Please can we have this?

      • SUM Email protection configuration management

        Ability to define email protection configurations via SUM. This functionality exists with the Sophos SEA appliance "configuration sharing" . This would be useful in environments where UTMs' are deployed to more than one office with each office exchange.

            • VPN: Support multiple Domains for SSL VPN on iOS

              At the moment it's not possible to add multiple domains (e.g. prod.lan and test.lan) as DNS suffix for SSL VPN / iOS.

              So with a iOS device it's currently not possible to access internal resources which are located on second internal DNS domain. e.g. Test-Websites.

              • licensing per core for VM/Software

                Hello,
                I didn't know in which category to put this and ended up with Operating System. It would be nice if UTM is licensed per core for VM or Software so it easier to compete with vendors like Fortinet. This is particulary interesting in VM worlds.

                Having upgrade path to buy additional quotes is also something what should be considered.

                  Hi Damir,

                  Thanks for contributing to our feature site. We are currently evaluating a software license model which will more closely match our appliance licensing, and will consider factors such as number of CPU cores, rather than protected IPs. This is not a short term plan, so don’t expect to see anything until at least mid 2105.

                  Thanks again for contributing!

                • force encrypted email authentication

                  It would be helpful to activate encryption/authentication on a per-port base.
                  Port 25 (SMTP) won't allow AUTH prior to STARTTLS (for clients) but will work without encryption and authentication at all (for servers).
                  Port 465 (SMTPS): already encrypted.
                  Port 587 (SMTP-MSA) allows AUTH as it is already an encrypted transfer.

                  Mail clients should use 587, but if they use Port 25 they need to use STARTTLS.

                  • Useful cache statistics (Web cache, DNS, SXL Categorization, Cluster balancing)

                    Since version 9.2 it easy to have the statistic in the Web filtering log to make some interesting stats on cache.

                    Cached= to know if the web object was take form disk cache
                    dnstime=0 the dns resolution was made from cache
                    cattime=0 the categorization is made form SXL cache
                    With the name of the UTM -1 or -2 in the log you can know how much the charge is balance between the cluster.

                    I think this could be a interesting widget stat in the main dasboard.

                    Thanks you

                    • Automatically allow Microsoft IPs through Country blocking

                      Customer found that lots of Microsoft addresses that are being used for Outlook Discover are being block in Country Blocking - once allowed everything works fine.

                      Customer wants a built in function to always resolve known Microsoft addresses and to allow these by default.

                      • Move the DELETE icon away from Deliver and Refresh.

                        Here is a great idea... Move the DELETE icon away from Deliver and Refresh. If your not paying any attention you could deliver the spam. Also it would be nice to have a Delete ALL icon to save time from going from page to page to delete.

                        • allow gateway objects to be entered as DNS hostnames, not just ip addresses

                          allow gateway objects to be entered as DNS hostnames, not just ip addresses.

                          we have dozens of RED connections to manage and it would be much easier to track/make changes in DNS rather than on dozens of UTMs...

                          • VPN connectivity "check" page

                            It would be handy if we could have a web page that is located on the UTM itself which has a "VPN connectivity check" page.

                            Reason being is that sometimes the routing that comes from users that have remoted in via the SSL VPN does not push through (even though we get green trafficlights), and a "restart" is required.

                            This handy webpage to say "You are connected to x VPN and everything is "ok" would be a handy support tool.

                            • Remote Access VPN authentication with RADIUS alone.

                              Currently the UTM supports multiple authentication methods - AD, eDirectory, RADIUS.TACAS, etc. The problem is we can't choose which authentication method to use for remote access users. Today it will accept ANY of the configured authentication methods. For example, we need to exclusively use RADIUS for this service, not AD or eDirectory.

                              • Country Selection for Qos

                                This feature is requested to accommodate the need to manage bandwidth allocation for country level, so user doesn’t need to create so many network definitions when setting the rule on QoS.

                                Dear Sophos,

                                You have a very good product. And we don_t consider this as a troubleshooting ticket.
                                We just want to share our clients need regarding QoS.

                                In Indonesia, right now common to use internet connection from ISP_s that separate bandwidth limit for local access and international access. for example, I may have 10 Mbps to access my country networks but I only have 5 Mbps for accessing International…

                                  We are using WAF to protect a website and when blocks occur due to bad ip reputation of the clinet accessing the website the client just receives a 403 error page
                                  with Permission Denied.Therefore the user does not understand the reason of the block action and this have an impact on the client service. We would like to know if there is a way to customize the errors provided by WAF for bad reputation ips
