  1. Have the option in SMC 5 to allow application installs on Windows Phones using .xap files without the need for a MS Live account

    In SMC 4 there is currently no functionality to allow admins to push applications to Windows 8.1 managed mobile devices via .xap files. You can push them out using the relevant URL from the Windows Store but this means you need to use a Microsoft Live account on the phone. We are in the process of rolling out 200+ Windows Phones and we would like to avoid the headache of having to separately manage all of those additional MS Live accounts for each device.

    • WAF Reverse Authentification: several Windows domains

      When we create an Authentification Service of type Active Directory, we can use only one Windows Domain. We can configure several Domain Controllers, but since the authentification progres fails at the first deny it does not male sense to configure DCs from several domains (am I right)?
      So when we could configure several domains (and in the WAF the possibility to choose which ones to use) we could build multi-domain scenarios: one that's very common is a corporate domain for stuff like exchange, intranet and so on - and a DMZ domain for extranet portals, usually with a one-way domain…

      • Native Microsoft Azure Site-to-Site VPN

        Sophos UTM already natively supports automatic site-to-site VPN tunnels with BGP routing to AWS. I look forward to Sophos UTM supporting the same sort of site-to-site VPN tunnels with BGP to Microsoft Azure in public and private cloud deployments.

        I think the easiest way for this to work would be for Sophos UTM to look at the requirements of getting the VPN itself setup (which has been documented in the forums and works), then to make BGP work on top of that, then ensure that BGP and the VPN can work between multiple private cloud and public cloud sites, then…

        • multiple AV vendors

          I'd like the ability to add other AV vendors onto the UTM, as a 'Sophos house' we have the Sophos Endpoint on client devices but if we could add another AV vendor for scanning downloads then that would be ideal, so we can potentially have 2 different AV vendors on the UTM and then Sophos Endpoint on the desktop.

          • upload bandwidth report

            Customer would like a report of upload bandwidth used so that they would be able to identify any possible data leakage if they can identify users that have high upload bandwidth usage.

            • Pany code in URL filtering

              In modern world, DNS name can contain not only Latin symbols,
              but also Names in Local language format.
              UTM understand Pany-code, we even can define something, like this in WebAdmin (in BlackList or WhiteList):
              http://xn--80aafi6cg.xn--p1ai/
              but you don't understand, what is it.
              For administrators useful have readable domains.

                      • Unblock cross referenced URLs too when unblocking a website

                        Maybe you could add the feature that cross referenced URLs are being unblocked too when a bypass user is unblocking a website.

                        Example:

                        If category "social media networking" is blocked in your web filter policy and you have users that are allowed to unblock websites (bypass users). If one of these bypass users is unblocking facebook for example, he gets a facebook page released without CSS that doesn`t look very nice and is not functional. That`s probably because facebook has a cross reference to "https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net" to receive it`s CSS which is not automatically been released together with the…

                          • SUM UTM

                            Buenos días, me gustaría que dentro del SUM en los detalles de cada UTM se visualizaran las actualizaciones disponibles o pendientes por instalar (overview).
                            Tambien sugiero poder subir varias actualizaciones a la vez y se sincronicen en overview una por una.

                            Gracias

                                      • Web Filter (Management Appliance) and HTTP User Agent strings

                                        It would be helpful to be able to search for, filter on, alert, and even block traffic based on HTTP User Agent
                                        Block User Agent for Java at proxy
                                        Query logs for visited hosts that used Java user agent•
                                        Aggregate by host, sort by frequency, analyze
                                        Generate exclusions
                                        Attacker can not modify the user agent before exploit attempt
                                        Esp helpful for Java.

                                        • include mac/apple with UTM endpoint protection

                                          There are lots of places that have both windows and macs in their business. Both need to be protected with endpoint protection so they can be managed. Why have one and not the other?
