  1. Data Disk over size % warning should be a setting

    When the Data Disk reaches 75% in size, continuous warnings are emailed saying "[INFO-154] Data Disk is filling up - please check". This % is encoded in the OS and cannot be changed. Log Partition settings allow the Log old logs to be deleted automatically. There should also be a similar control panel setting for the Data Partition please.

    • It would be good if the ability to select "send an encrypted copy to me" was included in the SPX reply email. I understand this feature is a

      An option within the UTM9 GUI to view a list of those recipients of emails who have registered via the SPX portal.

      • UTM Webproxy must log downloaded files before malware scan as they are currently not logged and accounted if not retrieved by user

        The UTM Proxy currently logs big downloaded files only after a user retrieved it by pressing the download button after malware scanning. Not retrieved downloaded files are neither logged nor accounted in the daily report. This falsifies the accounting especially when software tries to automatically download big files but cannot deal with the download button. One can searched for months for such a ghost, as no trace is available.

        • Quarantine Report to show better information (From sender)

          Currently the quarantine for both XG and SG units records and shows the mail header field 'RETURN TO' as the FROM address in quarantine and mail log screen. In many cases, this makes the interpritation of those emails impossible prior to releasing to the mail client.

          For example... a LOT of bulk mail (even if coming from a known vendor) now included information to see if an address is valid. They add inforation to the RETURN TO field such as 'bounce-20_html-12235547.....' and may or may not have the actual FROM address included. This makes a VERY long and frankly useless…

          • XG: Web and Application Policy per User or Group (Identity based)

            It is good for the end users who are using Identity based where in they can apply web and application policy per user or group since from the current firmware, you can only apply policy thru firewall. It is hassle if you have 10 users who have different policy, then i will need to create 10 firewall rule just to separate the users.
            I Hope it will come.

              • Server hostname - possibility to change the name

                Hi, we need to have the possibility to change the name of servers. Today in fact every server have only the hostnames and is very difficult to know which customers corresponds to server.

                Is it possibile to have this upgrade?

                Thanks

                • Better Firewall Rule Search

                  In the search area, it would help to find a Rule, if we can filter from Source net to Destination net.
                  For example: Show me all Rules from internal to DMZ, or internal to Any, DMZ to VPN...

                      Add a feature that is common and very useful on most firewalls, The display of active counters on firewall rules. This is a quick and useful way to trouble shoot firewall rule issues.

                      • Add more scheduling options for firmware updates.

                        We manage hundreds of VFW's in our environment and cannot take the risk of running firmware updates weekly on all of them. Some are also global, so we may need to do them at different time schedules. It would be great if we could schedule them Monthly rather than weekly. Adding flexibility.

                          • show flexiport in the UTM graphic representation

                            When I install a flexiport extension, I can see the new interfaces in a list, but the picture of the UTM is not updated with the flexiport that has been installed and the status of its ports.

                            This improvement is only cosmetic, as it does not affect to normal function of the UTM, but I think it is important. It will make it clearer to customers and network administrators as they will see all the ports status in a single view.

                              • Ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels

                                I would like the ability to create sub accounts with different permission levels. For example, you can have account 1 able to unblock/whitelist and account 2 can perform updates etc. This would be great as you won't need to give out the admin password and no user will see or do anything they are not supposed to on the webadmin interface.

                                    • Add the option to deploy End Point AV from the user portal

                                      It is often more efficient to let the user install when it is convenient to them. Particularly when installing for the first time to remote users or using onsite support technicians without UTM access.

                                      • Introduce a mechanism by which particular browsers, for example, Firefox may be blocked by the Sophos UTM.

                                        We are looking at Sophos UTM as a possible replacement for our current Microsoft 2010 TMG instance. Within The HTTP filter on TMG 2010 it was possible block content based on signatures within the request header. For example, to block Firefox, TMG 2010 could be configured to identify the Firefox user-agent within the request header and block it if need be.
