  1. PureMessage

    Realtime block list. Add the ability for Sophos to include reference to RBLs such as Spamhaus and spamcop. Apparently, doing this at the exchange level while using Sophos is not a good idea, so it would be nice if we could have the ability to set this up from the Pure Message console.

    thanks

    • Add ability to change password on Self Help screen in Sophos Safe Guard

      Sophos Safe Guard - Self Help screen allows viewing of the current password, but does not allow change of password. Enabling change of password at this screen would increase security level a step further.

      • Country blocking vs Endpoint Protection to fail to connect and update status of the managed PC

        Country blocking prevents Endpoint Protect from communicating with Sophos Liveconnect and cause the EP feature to stop working. CB should either not do that; or exceptions should be pre-populated to prevent that from happening.

          • New Feature for Web Appliance

            The feature we need is the facility to export the site list, complete with associated tags, to CSV so that we can ‘clean it up’ and then be able to re-import the cleaned list back into Sophos. Obviously, included in this is that we would also have to be able to delete the complete list in one go, in order to start with a clean sheet. As you may be aware, since our move to the virtual, rather than physical, Web Appliance, we are finding it to be extremely slow and unreliable to make changes to the site list.
            We…

            • breaking HA cluster without a shutdown the s lave.

              if the s lave shutsdown after breaking up the cluster, I can't reach it anymore because the unit is in a datacenter. Even console access is'nt possible.
              So do a factory reset of the s lave after breaking down the cluster and then a reboot. With console access I can configure the routing and ip's again.

              • 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…

                • Need to auto-reenable security after 15 minutes.

                  When chosing "disable" on security I would like to see a pop-up or option prompt to "auto-reenable after 15 minutes, or 1 hour, etc"

                  We have techs that troubleshoot and forget to turn back on all the security settings- which makes for a very difficult situation when an auditor arrives.

                  • Allow customizable block pages for WAF

                    Currently the WAF displays a generic HTTP status page (403 "Authentication required") for errors and blocked actions. This really break the general look and feel of the product as they feature no branding whatsoever.

                    It would be very nice if these pages feature the same style as the status pages in the rest of the UTM (Email, Web), and if we could offer similar customizability for them.

                    This will work two-fold: On the one hand it will make the generic blockpages prettier and more attuned to the rest of the product, and at the same time it will allow organizations…

                    • Add file type filtering to WAF

                      Allow admins to list a set of file extensions and MIME types they wish to filter from either upload, downloads or both.

                      Include the true filetype detection already present in Web Protection (http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/1468141-web-security-file-extension-blocking-inside-archi) to make evasion harder.

                      Optionally: Make the list of file-types a reverse authentication attribute, so that different groups of users are allowed to use different types of files.

                      This functionality will allow for greater flexibility and protection when using the WAF. It can work as a DLP filter in downloads, or as a way of blocking executable code in uploads.

                      • HotSpot: Export "First Connection Date" CSV

                        Hi,

                        today a customer asked me if the first Connection Date could be also made exportable in the HotSpot Section. I think it should be easily done isn't it?

                        • recipient verification

                          If you choose "in Active Directory", a email will be refused, if the DC is not available. Why do you not cache all emal addresses (main and alias) from the DC and refresh them periodically.So the Emailserver is able to refuse invalid email addresses immediately. In that case, a email address in the AD is no longer valid, the Email server will react as you had choose the option "with server inquiry" as recipient verification.

                                Hey Everyone,

                                My corp has the same dns externally as externally (abc.com internal and abc.com external). We are using the protected wifi with an employee zone that does not have or need access to the internal network. But when those devices are using the utm as their DNS they inherently have access to the internal DNS. With this many services like outlook any where attempts routing to the internal network because it detects the internal DNS. So i would like to ask for DNS Request routing and have an option to select the interface that applies to. So i would…

                                  • HTML5 RDP automatic login with domain active directory credentials

                                    When you setup HTML5 RDP automatic login, it should pass the active directory credentials including domain to the RDP server for login.

                                    This is a current feature of the sonicwall SSL-VPN and needs to be addressed for the sophos UTM.

                                    • Make RBL list update possible via Pattern update or check their availability

                                      Recently the Web Server Security reverse proxy experienced timeout problems because "block clients with bad reputation" was active and one of the three internally user DNS RBL lists is down (dnsbl.proxybl.org).

                                      As the DNS RBL list stuff is not very reliable and often these lists are down due to DOS attacks or lack of administrators, it would make sense to react to such changes very quickly.

                                      So I suggest making updates of RBL lists using the pattern update mechanism (applies to both SMTP and reverse proxy and maybe Web Security as well).

                                      Another approach would be to chek the availability…

                                      • Implementing of rbl whitelists like dnswl.org

                                        it would be great to implement the feature of rbl whitelists from
                                        dnswl.org to decrease the ammount of false positives
                                        of the well known rbl list vendors like spamcop and others.
                                        In my case, a big german provider is blacklistet by these lists with
                                        about 3 servers from 20. Mails by these servers are not been
                                        delivered by out UTM because it checks the most
                                        popular RBL's in web. Define Exclusions for all these false positives
                                        in an own list are too cumbersome!!

                                        • Provide dhcp lease time option for SSL vpn pool

                                          Currently there is no option to configure dhcp lease time for SSL vpn pool. This causes DNS resolution issues as there will be multiple stale records resolving to the same IP. I have reduced the scavenging time but this will not resolve this issue.
