  1. WAF - limit skipped rule-ID to ip and networks

    We have the possibility to skip certain rule-ID in the WAF-Firewall-Profiles. Normally we are doing this for known visitor hosts or networks. We need an extra function to limit the skipping to host an networks or any network object the asg knows.

    • Application Proxy for WebDav support for NFS and CFIS Shares

      Hi

      it will be usefull to have a webdav Proxy for Access CFIS / NFS Shares via AD Authentification via WebDav.

      Normaly you have to configure a IIS with Webdav extention to have this feature. But direct on the Astaro you have more logging possibilities and controls over this traffic.

      kind regards

      Alex

        • Sophos MDC SSP to have a selectable domain prefix

          This would allow customer to pre-define the domain, and not require users to have to specify the domain manually.

          • Endpoint: Patch Management

            I see that Sophos has a Patch Assessment tool that scans PCs on the network and alerts you to outdated Programs. Add this into your UTM Endpoint please.

              • Mail Protection: Quarantine report to single central mail address

                Present situation (V.8) is that only the corresponding e-mail address is getting his "Spam Reports" . But for central administration it would be nice to have an option, to send ALL e-mail spam or quarantine reports to one central e-mail address instead of having many recipients.

                • Management: Unify Static DNS / DHCP mappings to Object Definitions

                  Use the same data for DNS static entries as for Network host definitions.
                  Like this we would not need to enter the same data twice.

                  • Block some and alert on others

                    Currently you can block or you can detect but allow to run (alert) but you cannot do one for some categories and the other for other categories. Customer would like to block something like voip but alert only on instant messengers.

                    • Wireless: External Radius authentication for Hotspot

                      We would love the ability for forwarding Hotspot authentication to an External Radius server.

                      At present we have to use Mikrotik routers to accomplish this and having the entire solution on the Astaro would be much more efficient.

                      Complete customisation of the Hotspot Login page would also be great.

                      • MacOS user grouping support for authentication

                        Unfortunately after a lot of work with Astaro a while back it was found that MacOS Server does not push the memberOf attribute back in replies rendering Astaro User Grouping useless so what I'm suggesting is as follows.

                        Under Authentication servers, allow for either a LDAP Browser or LDAP Field to be specified for the group ID and have Astaro cache the User IDs within that group and re-poll it once an hour or so that way user with a specific ID hits the proxy with the right credentials Astaro will see that ID in the group and let it…

                        • Web Protection: Silently block some categories without a block page (IE: Ads)

                          The first (current) way is to display the error/blocked page. the second way could be not to display anything. It could be handy for blocking webads (for example) without showing the users all the not scalled blocked frame.

                                  Disable the user-portal items on a per-user base.
                                  EG. Reception should issue the vouchers for the guests and nothing more but she gets items she doesn't need .HTML5-VPN (with no connections), password change, HTTPS Certificate.

                                  It would be nice to disable user-portal features for her but not for all, so she only gets the Hotspot Tab!

                                  • UTM Endpoint Protection: Limit visibility and use of UTM EPP Client Features

                                    Users are (too often) clicking everywhere and I like when we can block ALL the possibilities to change something. I see that exclusions, quarantine manager rights and SMTP alerts can ben configured on the user side ? Am I having that possibility because the package has been installated with an admin account (the user is a local administrator on that machine) ?

                                      There are a number of other products now supporting the Internet Watch Foundation with a fix set of web filters that cant be altered. This is required for UK school web filtering system. Will Astaro/Sophos be implementing these requirement.

                                      • Mail Manager: SMTP Quarantine: Attachment Extraction/ Save

                                        Dropdown option to save attachemts from quarantined messages for further review, before releasing from quarantine.
                                        Should be fairly easy with the uudeview command already available in linux.

                                        • RED: Hardware USB Security Dongle

                                          Dongle support for RED, which allows you to place a special file on a USB drive (generated by the ASG) which will only open the tunnel only in case the dongle is plugged in the USB port; so the RED can be left at the location without risking invaders.

                                          If you want to physically restrict access to the RED (such as going home) you bring the dongle with you.
