  1. Web Security: HTTPS / SSL Scanning Only for SafeSearch

    In order for SafeSearch to work all of the time with Google, Yahoo, and Bing, we need to cover HTTPS / SSL Scanning as well. However, implementing HTTPS / SSL Scanning system wide impacts every other HTTPS / SSL service transiting through the Astaro Security Gateway. Developing rules to work around those impacts, if even possible, is coming to be a full time job.

    The feature request is for the Astaro Security Gateway to implement HTTPS / SSL scanning ONLY for the SafeSearch sites. This could be accomplished through a simply check-box either on the Web Security >> Global tab…

    • VPN: Spice Protocol for HTML5 VPN

      Please add support for the Spice protocol. It is an Open Source solution for interacting with KVM Virtual Machines, and gives you a rich user experience. It is a kind of Remote Desktop protocol. Also, support for more Remote Desktop types would be cool, like *NX, and XDMCP.

      • MailSecurity: Quarantine Report - Limiting Who to send Reports to!

        Currently we can set who NOT to send reports to, but what if we require the opposite, and only what a few select users/groups/domains receiving the quarantine reports.

        In our environment, we had to turn it off so the general users where not receiving the messages.

        • Mail Protection: Directional filter for Mail Manager

          In Mail Manager, we cannot filter inbound / outbound mails. It would be good to have a filter box for sender / recipient IP, so we can differentiate between inbound and outbound emails. Furthermore, the statistics overview in the main page of Mail Security - Mail Manager counts "messages delivered", but it would be much more interesting to know the percentage blocked/inbound instead of blocked/overall.

            • Rebuild default web exception

              A very interesting item I think could be useful is as follows.

              Under Web Security Exceptions have an automated default exception rebuild, allowing for the default exceptions to be rebuilt/updated by the Sophos/Astaro defaults triggered by the end user, in essence the rebuild button would download an RPM with the updated exceptions in it that would overwrite the current installed RPM of the exceptions, that way if a customer / co-worker / misclick deletes/modifies an exception for adobe/windows/apple/etc updates they can be recovered with a single click.

              This would also alleviate headaches if a program in the exception adds a…

                  Include sophos endpoint style category application controls in the management features of UTM.
                  This will complement network based application detection and control.

                  • Networking: Allow for Network Visibility with Network Protection too

                    I'd like to recommend that Network Visibility be move to the Network Security Package. Network Visibility allow for Application shaping via Flow Monitor. Keep the Application Control under Web Security, but at least let us turn on the Network Visibility to make more use out of the Flow Monitor.

                    • Authentication. Allow internal hostname for joining to Active Directory

                      When joining Active Directory it would be very nice if an internal hostname could be used instead of using the FQDN of the generic hostname given to UTM.

                      • Networkiing: Limit bandwidth total for WAN connections

                        We need a feature to monitor the WAN traffic of expensive satelite uplinks.

                        When the paid data volume is nearly exhausted the UTM should inform the admin. So we need a max. data volume value and a threshold value for the notifier.

                        • User Portal: Use hostname like webserver protection

                          On Management / User Portal / TAB advanced / network settings there is the option to set a hostname, listen address and port. When the port 443 is already used for webserver protection, the port settings for User Portal cannot be used anymore. I tried to make a webserver protection to link to the Sophos UTM9 User Portal, but it would let me.
                          Therefore I ask it the option is to use the hostname in User Portal for recognition with also the port 443. Just like you can do with webserver protection.

                            Hi developer-guys,

                            it would be great to have separate statistics für incoming (TO own domains) and outgoing (FROM own domains) mails.

                            Best regards

                            • Log recovery

                              When the log daemon is down, Astaro/Sophos can't collect any data, even if a remote syslog server has been configured; this because the system can send the logs only after they are written to the disk, when daemon is down the logs aren't written.
                              This is a serious problem for the Italian law.

                                in Webadmin, Userportal and Web Application Security.
                                The intermediate CAs will not be sent by the UTM to the client, so the CA path is broken and then some Browsers will not accept the cert.

                                • Networking: Enterprise Server Balancing

                                  Today I fear a datacenter with several ASG and we are building a cluster environment to provide the VMWare virtual firewall service to our customers.

                                  Lately, we have received many demands for load-balance/fail-over of bundled applications. We would like that feature in Sophos UTM was a little more mature ... so we would not need to use other appliances for this solution.

                                  Today, Astaro allows only load-balance for TCP, UDP, HTTP, HTTPS, but without much intelligence.

                                  A good example would be load-balance/fail-over to be implemented as below:

                                  Method Description:

                                  • Licensing: Licensing software subscriptions with different capacity

                                    It would be great if we could purchase software licenses of different protected IP's per-subscription on the same device. For example, If we need Web Application Security (for Protecting Servers) or Mail Security (to protect a mail server) we are forced to buy it for every IP behind the gateway. Licensing an entire LAN for protection from dedicated server attacks seems kind of unfair.

                                      • Upstream Proxy Authentication

                                        Within the Appliances settings under Network - Hostname there is an option to add in an upstream proxy but not to add in a username and password. This is becoming a pain for customers who have to bypass their Proxy in order to register the Appliance.

                                        • Web Security: Exceptions for Parent Proxy

                                          We are required to use a parent proxy for all sites. In certain instances, it is necessary to bypass the parent proxy setting when an exception is made. For instance, certain users should have access to a site that is blocked by the parent proxy. Creating an exception for this URL that also allows the user of that exception to bypass the parent proxy is an absolute must.
