  1. Linux Endpoint Protection Client

    Sophos Antivirus supports multiple Linux distributions. I recommend adding this client to the UTM Endpoint list so we can protect, manage and monitor security on our Linux servers and desktops

        • More Control Over BGP Routes created by Amazon VPC auto-setup

          The Amazon VPC module currently automatically sets up BGP routes based on the Amazon supplied configuration file. This causes the Sophos UTM to advertise the default route 0.0.0.0. This creates unintended traffic routing when Sophos UTM appliances connected via site-to-site VPN are also configured with Amazon VPC VPN's. Please provide option to configure or manage routes created/advertised from within GUI.

            Currently a user gets only redirected to the hotspot page, if he tries to access anything via HTTP. Please make this work also for HTTPS access.

              • global webadmin preferences

                when working with sum/acc SSO its not possible to change the user preferences (tab is missing). its also missing when logging in as AD user which is not explicitly added to "Allowed Administrators" (e.g. when using AD-Groups).

                i would like to set this preferences (items per page, browser title, ...) globally.

                • IPS : configure IPS to block the hacker to hack mail id to send mail with that account

                  I am using my UTM625 as my mail gateway and I allowed some of emails to relay messages to the gateway.One of my users email has been hacked and used to sends mass amount of emails within short period of time without my IPS on my UTM stopping it.I suggest you add this feature as it, I think, is basic Spamming/DOS preventing method.

                  • enable timeframe reporting for traffic and network protection

                    In order to enable drill-down on peaks in the usage graphs, enable time-frame reporting (so that the cause of a spike in packet filter blocks, or traffic, or emails processed, can be easily investigated.)
                    This is currently only possible per-day in the log searches, no narrower timeframes are possible.
                    Extending this to being able to drag-select a section of a report graph and then 'drill-down' to the underlying data would be really helpful, I think.
                    Tracking down what has been happening as quickly as possible and reacting accordingly is the idea.

                    • allow restricting access to authenticated smtp proxy to certain networks

                      Enable restricting Authenticated SMTP Proxy to certain networks.
                      It would be useful to be able to restrict access to the Authenticated SMTP Proxy to certain (trusted, or less-untrusted) networks.

                        • Use DHCP Static Entries in Wireless Client List

                          Right now if you create a static DHCP reservation and its a wireless client, you have to create a new wireless client entry to get a 'vanity' name on that client. It would prefer to just pick up on the DHCP static entry name and carry it over.

                            • Dashboard in current UTM 9: frame for interfaces too small

                              When more than the standard-interfaces are beeing used (RED, VLANs, etc.) the frame is too small to display them all. A direct overview is impossible and scrolling is needed. Even more worse: the scrolled-down list jumps back to the beginning within a few seconds (automatic pagerefresh). I think it's necessary to make this frame user-adjustable or (better) to have it adjust automatically. Please change this :)

                              • Synchronise UTM DNS with external DNS system, such as Amazon Route 53

                                Support the ability to "import" and "synchronise" entries from a public facing DNS, such as Amazon Route 53 into the Sophos UTM so that devices internal to the network doesn't have to reference the public facing DNS to resolve email, HTTP or HTTPS servers that are hosted internally. For example, if I give you my Amazon credentials, Sophos can "scan" all the entries for all domains, find those that reference the IP addresses of the Sophos device and create entries for them. If we add another entry later on to Amazon Route 53 to deal with another web server, Sophos…

                                    • email appliance - quarantine feature

                                      In the quarantined messages summary email that is sent to users, provide a configuration option to turn off the inclusion of the mailto: link alongside each quarantined message listed. The reason for this is that customers don’t have an email client configured on student computers and clicking the mailto link brings up the Outlook configuration wizard which we don’t want. We would prefer that the summary email simply informs the user and provides them with a link to the portal where they can decide if they want to release the message/s.

                                      • Auto pop log messages when doing updates etc.

                                        When you choose to install an update the system just does it there is no feedback to say are you sure, especially when the system is likely to reboot after an update, for enterprise class use with the UTM 120+ then this could be a critical piece of equipment, my other request (main request) would be to have information about what is happening when tasks take longer than a few seconds (like updates), popup the up2date love log window to show the progress and actually tell the user when its done or have some sort of progress bar, a box…

                                        • AstaroOS: vmxnet3 network module support

                                          These appliances currently use the "flexible" vmware network driver. This creates much greater latency than the vmxnet3 driver from VMware. Substituting these drivers is possible with your Sophos UTM product and it has greatly increased performance.
