      • Would like a feature to block outgoing traffic that exceeds a certain threshold.

        Our old software (SurfCop on TMG) had the ability to block outgoing traffic that exceeded a certain threshold. The thinking is that if we do get hacked, the hacker would only be able to upload a certain number of docs before being blocked. This was a 24 hour limit and the clock would reset. It was by person or IP address. It is a great tool to have.

        • Fix UTM Licensing To Expire IPv6 Temporary Addresses Faster

          Fix UTM licensing to "age out" faster the many IPv6 "temporary addresses" that are created by most devices (running Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux). As an example, I have 12 devices connected to my network, but because I run in an IPv4/IPv6 environment, UTM is currently counting 113 IP addresses and sending me daily warnings that I have exceeded my license count and no new devices can be added to the network.

          In the forum post linked below I have gone into greater detail, but the issue essentially is that in 2014 almost every IPv6-capable device is generating…

          • SSL VPN on multiple interfaces

            It would be nice to select 2 or more interfaces on the settings of the SSL remote access. We have an UTM with multiple WAN addresses. One of the addresses is used for 443 (SSL) NAT to an internal webserver. But we want to let the UTM listen on 2 other addresses for incoming SSL VPN connections on port 443 TCP. We can only select one interface or any. But with any the UTM sees the conflict with the SSL NAT.

              • MAC address filter - add a description field for MAC Addresses

                All is said above :-)

                In Windows DHCP service I can add a comment for each MAC address. Would be nice to have this in the UTM too.

                • Reverse proxy add encodedslashes option

                  Please provide the option in the Reverse proxy to enable encodedslashes for a specific virtual webserver.

                  Because some web applications use for example %2F for a slash and the reverse proxy cannot translate this back to / because of allowencodedslashes is not enabled by default. So this results in a 404 error.

                  http://httpd.apache.org/docs/current/mod/core.html#allowencodedslashes

                  When changing the configuration file of the reverseproxy it is working fine, but the configuration is overwritten all the time. So a checkbox in the Webadmin to enable this option would be nice.

                  • Multiple DLP rules support

                    Add the ability to create multiple DLP rules for the same profile and allow for them to be ordered like firewall rules. This would allow for great customization and the ability to tailor the DLP process to end user. This is how they are setup in the Sophos Email Gateway.

                        • Web Protection: Youtube and blocking specific categories

                          Coming from another vendor one of the features I like/had was that I could block categories within YouTube. We are a School District that needs to access YouTube (YouTube for Education has limited content). It would be nice to setup a policy or rule to be able to block these YouTube Categories.

                          Currently available categories are:
                          • Film

                          • Allow Web Filtering By Firewall Rule

                            Apply web filter profile to user or mac/mac list in firewall rules. Sonicwall did this and it was invaluable on our network.
                            Example. User(John) AND Network = LAN -> WAN apply web filter profile (No Social Media)

                            Not just apply profiles to networks. That's really limiting.

                                      Meilleure visibilité des logs en temps réel : C’est de la préhistoire cet affichage de fichiers texte dans une pop-up

                                      Improved visibility of logs in real time: The display text files in a pop-up is obsolete

                                        • Upgrade UTM SSH package to avoid CVE-2013-4548 & CVE-2014-2532

                                          The current UTM includes an older SSH version that shows up in PCI scans as having vulnerabilities CVE-2013-4548 & CVE-2014-2532.

                                          Sophos support indicates that the vulnerabilities do not effect the UTM, but it's a hassle to have to explain that auditors. Just upgrading the SSH package on the UTM would avoid the issue.
