  1. Add Single Sign On for web applications similar to what Forefront can do.

    Forefront can provide SSO for multiple web applications. I'd like to see a similar feature in UTM 9.
    For example:
    An agent signs into www.insurancecompany.com and clicks a link to www.insurancecompanyagents.com, the agent won't be prompted again for authentication because of the SSO policy for the two sites.

      • Set backup run time

        With the automatic backups currently you cannot specify the time that the backup runs.
        Could this be added to standardise when the backups are run as they currently run at random times between UTM's.

        • Support EAS Proxy functionality in UTM

          Sophos Mobile Control has a component to block mobile devices, which are not compliant, from accessing the Exchange ActiveSync interface of an Exchange server. It would be nice to have this integrated with an UTM, which is placed on the network edge anyway. This would be one server less and would deepen the integration between the two products

                • in SMC setting an option to choose how to clasiffy unknown devices (not managed by SMC). Compliant or non-compliant.

                  Now all devices are clasiffied as non-comliant unless told by SMC, so all devices must be managed by SMC to be able to connect to wifi. Which is not always the case.

                    • SSL VPN - Connecting for authentication before logging into user profile

                      like the native Windows VPN (PPTP) connection that allows you to connect through VPN before logging into any profile.
                      This allows us to remotely create profiles on domain computers that are at remote sites.

                        • Please replace the service definition Kerberos (TCP) with Kerberos (TCP/UDP)

                          Please replace the default service definition Kerberos (TCP) with Kerberos (TCP/UDP). The firewall drop a lot of Kerberos packets (UDP). The Sophos support told us that the UDP doesn't exist for Kerberos but the Openlive Log is very clear.

                          • Show eth link speed/duplex in gui

                            the link speed/duplex is not curently shown in any of the webadmin tabs, only a general "UP/DOWN" status.
                            Curently the HW tab in interfaces only shows the capabilities of each NIC, and the support/advanced/interfaces tables doesn't show it either.

                            the only way to get this important info is to SSH and run ifconfig/ethtool commands, quite cumbersome for an important bit of info (in fact can help troubleshoot cable problems/wrong switch ports/wrong modem configs, etc)

                            • Bradford Integration

                              Hello,

                              We have many customers who are experiencing issues with the integration between Bradford and Sophos.

                              To be able to run a Sophos scan they are required to have admin priveledges and this is not an option for all users.

                              Bradford have requested we also raise a case with you after contacting them, To pursue your co-operation with them to work together and sort out a fix for this issue.

                              Regards,

                              Jordan Richmond

                              Khipu Networks.

                              • Add an option on application control rule to execute either before or after web filter

                                By default application control rules are executed after web filtering and once a URL is blocked by webfiltering, application control is no longer executed. It would be nice if we can specify whether an application control rule is executed before or after web filtering. This would be useful if you want to let's say block all media streaming sites except Youtube. So all I have to do is create a web filtering rule to block media streaming category and create a application control rule to allow YouTube and have it execute before web filtering. This way I don't have to…

                                • Proxy profile firewall rules

                                  We need to be able to use firewall rules to prevent access between networks, however the rules do not apply to HTTP traffic when using transparent proxy.

                                  Can you add on the functionality to either:
                                  A )Have a http proxy profiles as a definition which can be used within a firewall rules / routing e.t.c.

                                  B) Be able to add firewall rules against a proxy profile.

                                  Thank-you

                                  • FTP SITE CHANGE

                                    changing the way the FTP site works

                                    Essentially as the .md file in the FTP directory is from the same FTP site, it doesn't mean or validate anything (e.g. cannot be relied upon to validate the trustworthiness of the file). Reason being if the site is spoofed (e.g. via DNS) then we cannot validate the identity of the remote server, given it is clear-text FTP (no mechanism to validate the site's identity, such as via SSL/TLS). Further, if the site has been compromised, an attacker merely has to place the MD5 hash there for the malicious ISO file they replaced.

                                      • encrypt a message released from quarantine

                                        Make it so a message that is released from quarantine could be encrypted

                                        For instance, outbound message has credit card numbers in it, so it is quarantined. The Admin see this and knows the email must go through, but it should be encrypted, so encrypt then release.

                                        • ability to block/drop mail from blacklisted senders?

                                          there is no such option for this, except option to drop spam/confirmed spam alltogether, which we dont want.
                                          we still want to see/check what's coming in, except for those sender's already on the blacklist - they still go into quarantine however wich makes no sense except to make the quarantine log harder to work with.
                                          thanks!
