  1. Sophos RED 19" rack mount

    It would be nice if we could buy an additional 19" rack mount kit for the RED devices. Looks cleaner and more professional.

    • Implement a console type interface into the UTM for controlling the endpoints.

      The UTM endpoint protection should have a way to view the quarantine items on the endpoints and authorise or clean what it has discovered. If the application is to be authorised there should be a way to auto add this directly to the exceptions policy. The ability to run a scan of the endpoint from the UTM should also be included. Currently the UTM implementation of the endpoint protection is more like a notice than a central management point, meaning the admin has to go to the machines in question (either physically or with a remote connection) to investigate the…

        • Connect SUM with Sophos iView Appliance or make SUM configure SYSLOG for all devices.

          Could be nice if the SUM is reinvented so that SYSLOG traffic is sent to SUM and the SUM can be connected to iView OR SUM can configure UTM's SYSLOGGING service to point all to Sophos iView appliance.

          • Usability improvement - Vpn site to site

            We need to be able to add group objects when we create Remote Gateways for Site-to-Site VPNs in the "Local Networks" box. When we add a subnet to the network, we need to add the subnet to 20+ IPsec connections.

            • Flow Monitor: Ability to show outbound traffic only

              At the moment when you click on the Out or In bandwidth in Dashboard, you are taken to the tabular view of the Flow Monitor. This shows Total bandwidth only.

              Need to be able to show only outbound or inbound traffic. We are saturating our outbound limit and there is no way to find out which client is culprit.

              Apparently this functionality used to exist.

              So, if you click on the Out bandwidth in Dashboard, it should take you to the flow monitor showing outbound traffic. If you click on the In bandwidth it should show Inbound traffic in the…

              • to make it possible to send notifications if a VPN-Tunnel stays down more than 3-5 minutes.

                I suggest you to make it possible to send notifications if a VPN-Tunnel stays down more than 3-5 minutes.

                Because the actual status is that we get to much false positives.

                • Adding filter for the recipient ("mail to")

                  Please add filtering for recipient addresses (mail to).

                  Currently the UTM (9.2) only can filter incomming mails for the "mail from" field.

                  "mail to" is extremely usefull for blocking incomming spam/phishing at UTM level and not letting it pass to internal mail servers for verification.

                  We have some old and some internal mail accounts and distribution lists that are only created for internal communication.

                  Badly, the email adresses belonging to this accounts are public and gets tons of spam because we cant block them at the UTM right now.

                  • allow an unused interface to be configured as a SPAN port.

                    This will allow for additional threat and network monitoring. For example, as an MSSP partner, we have had great success selling UTM along with another partner's IDS. Though the IPS functionality of the UTM is great, as it is sitting inline processing, it cannot do quite as deep a dive into the packets. Having IDS *plus* IPS has been fantastic in detecting threats and using that information to inform the UTM.

                      Ability to define email protection configurations via SUM. This functionality exists with the Sophos SEA appliance "configuration sharing" . This would be useful in environments where UTMs' are deployed to more than one office with each office exchange.

                        • Server Load Balancing: Alternate internal port than external

                          Just like NAT allows, let us choose an alternate port to redirect traffic to on the internal servers. Right now, whatever is external is internal, and it forces us to use NAT which kills any option to have high-availability and load balancing.

                            currently url bypass is only working for category or url-filter blocks. This should be available for file extension blocking too!

                              • VPN: Support multiple Domains for SSL VPN on iOS

                                At the moment it's not possible to add multiple domains (e.g. prod.lan and test.lan) as DNS suffix for SSL VPN / iOS.

                                So with a iOS device it's currently not possible to access internal resources which are located on second internal DNS domain. e.g. Test-Websites.

                                  • force encrypted email authentication

                                    It would be helpful to activate encryption/authentication on a per-port base.
                                    Port 25 (SMTP) won't allow AUTH prior to STARTTLS (for clients) but will work without encryption and authentication at all (for servers).
                                    Port 465 (SMTPS): already encrypted.
                                    Port 587 (SMTP-MSA) allows AUTH as it is already an encrypted transfer.

                                    Mail clients should use 587, but if they use Port 25 they need to use STARTTLS.

                                    • Automatically allow Microsoft IPs through Country blocking

                                      Customer found that lots of Microsoft addresses that are being used for Outlook Discover are being block in Country Blocking - once allowed everything works fine.

                                      Customer wants a built in function to always resolve known Microsoft addresses and to allow these by default.

                                      • Move the DELETE icon away from Deliver and Refresh.

                                        Here is a great idea... Move the DELETE icon away from Deliver and Refresh. If your not paying any attention you could deliver the spam. Also it would be nice to have a Delete ALL icon to save time from going from page to page to delete.

                                        • allow gateway objects to be entered as DNS hostnames, not just ip addresses

                                          allow gateway objects to be entered as DNS hostnames, not just ip addresses.

                                          we have dozens of RED connections to manage and it would be much easier to track/make changes in DNS rather than on dozens of UTMs...
