  1. Allow an option to Quarantine emails that match DLP rules

    Currently, the only options for emails hitting a DLP rule are 1) send 2) blackhole or 3) automatically encrypt with SPX and send

    I'd love to see a 4th option of quarrantining the message as with suspected Spam so that an administrator could review and then either release or block the message. Currently, we have the feature set to Blackhole matches.. but in the case of a false-positive, there's no way to then release the message.

    • One Time Password (OTP) transmit with new SMS Gateway released in v9.308-16

      Now is the new SMS Gateway working for Hotspot Login. It will be great to use the Gateway for sending the OTP to Enduser by SMS.

      • Ability to publish FTP through the WAF

        Having the ability to publish FTP through the WAF instead of direct firewall passthrough, then you could detect and block brute force attacks and such at the sophos.

          • UTM Cannot join SUM due to being Blacklisted. SUM needs to list Serial Number and GUID of Denied UTMs

            If you blacklist a UTM in the SUM, and then do a factory reset on the hardware, the UTM remains blacklisted. This makes sense.

            However, there is a major problem: You cannot tell what UTMs are blacklisted. The only details provided in the SUM is blacklisted UTM's IP and Hostname.

            However, the blacklist apparently applies to more than the Hostname/IP combo and will be denied even after a factory reset and reconfiguration.

            Therefore, you need to also show in SUM the blacklisted UTM's Serial Number and GUID. If provided it would be easy to determine which item to remove from…

            • Remove support for TLS 1.0/Allow it to be disabled.

              PCI scans that see a remote access port open to the internet fail because the appliance still supports TLS 1.0. I have to dispute this every time, and it is a real hassle.

              • Device Control - BitLocker - Encryption

                We are deploying Endpoint protection with device control and want to allow full access to encrypted drives and read only access to non-encrypted drives. We would like the device control to recognize BitLocker encrypted drives as encrypted devices.

                In addition, add SMTP notifications related to device control.

                • Mail filter to scan attachments of type message/rfc822 as if they were another email

                  Ensure that emails with an attachment of type message/rfc822 have the attachment scanned as if it were a normal email. Currently, we can send email through the filter, with dangerous attachments inside an attached email - which is not ideal.

                    On ourr FTMG we webfilter via IP Address ranges. Eg have a range set for students and another for Staff both recieveing differernt levels of Filtering. This should be a feature on UTM. We would consider purchasing it if this feature was available.

                        • Display Reason & URL for Blocked Sites

                          Policy Violators’ report does not show all reason for blocked traffic.
                          For some it leaves blank. For example "connection reset by peer" or connection refused. If this occurs you then have to check the http log. So it would be good to have these included in the report

                          • Limit access on IPSEC VPN Gateway

                            To limit access on vpn gateway it should be possible to define "Allowed networks" analogue to the network service configuration for NTP.
                            Default would be "Any" or a checkbox to enable access limitations.

                            When only configured IPs or DynDNS hosts can reach the VPN gateway, any attacks are securely blocked by firewall rule.

                            • A Tool to Generate a backup file from a Template for import and export of Standard Templates for UTM.

                              I want to be able to manage a number of standard Templates.
                              When I have all the extra client information (the variable info from one customer from another) I want to be able to import this as a flat file (whatever format (csv)).
                              This will then be feed into the pre-configured Template and come out as a backup file (abf) ready to be imported into the UTM.
                              This will let those who manage lots of customers the ability to build a complex unit quickly and be able to deploy standards across multiple customers.
                              This will save time by not having…

                              • Conncurrent Connections per Host

                                Currently, Sophos UTM allows you to see Concurrent Connections on the Dashboard, Interfaces & Routing page as well as Logging & Reporting --> Network Usage --> Bandwidth Usage for a Total Connection usage count.

                                It would be useful to illustrate a real time breakdown for which Hosts are occupying said Concurrent Connections. I've been able to track TCP Connections via ip_conntrack, however, I'm sure the Sophos UTM has a cleaner approach that could be used to isolate connections at the IP level.

                                • Netgear Aircard 340u LTE Support

                                  I walked into the ATT store and bought the only USB AC that they had - the Netgear AC 340u. I had asked if this was the only option - Yes was the reply.

                                  The AC 340u does support linux. It would be super if the UTM and RED supported the AC340u.

                                  • Allow SG115 bridged to LAN network

                                    Currently it's not possible to use the integrated AP on the SG 115 for a bridged to LAN SSID. Most customers have purchased this unit to use it in this way rather than as a separate zone AP. Could the UTM be updated so we can use it as bridged and separate zone.

                                      • Support for more Windows Active Directory login formats

                                        Please support more allowed AD login formats for pre authentication and/or implement the possibility to rewrite (with regex) the login strings before authentication.

                                        I have lot of ActiveSync users in a multiple domain environment for example and they are pre authenticated with a TMG. At the moment it isn’t possible to move the service to the UTM. Our ActiveSync clients (iPhone/Windows Phone) authenticate in most cases with the following formats:

                                        NT4-domain\username
                                        W2K-domain\username

                                        With a rewriting feature I would rewrite W2K-domain\username” to username@W2K-domain (UPN-Style). The user could be authenticated with LDAP now.

                                        • There should be a way to include the REASON for DLP action in the notification to the user

                                          Currently, if a message is blackholed or otherwise acted on for triggering a DLP rule, the end user only knows that their message was blocked. There's no easy way to get the UTM to give them the reason (e.g., included credit card number).

                                          That information is available in the logs, but requires someone with administrative access to the UTM to dig for it... would be far more useful if it could be easily reported to the offending user.
