  1. 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.

          • Mail Protection: Separate statistics into incoming and outgoing

            Hi developer-guys,

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

            Best regards
            Andreas

            • Endpoint Protection: Add Sophos Application Control

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

              • 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.

                • AstaroOS: Support intermediate CAs

                  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:
                    Source IP Hash: The traffic load is statically spread evenly across…

                    • 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.

                                With RTM we can track the Gateway for a static route , so that incase if gateway is not reachable the route will get disabled autoimaticaly
                                this lets me put the Active / passive route to one destination via multiple paths.

                                  It would be nice to have an Report about all the REDs and how long they use the failover 3G connection. This would be helpful to reduce costs with UMTS-Dongles with on demand contracts and to debug problems with the primary connection.

                                    There needs to be one report that will show the total bandwidth on the network for ALL Users, and then allowing you to drill down, so if I want to see what user A is doing, after clicking on that IP, it will show me all websites, or FTP sites, all the activity for that user in question.

                                    I want to see in one place a total report for a user with graphs, charts, and a clean display of their network activity.

                                    • Wireless: Alternate Licensing Options

                                      Currently trying to sell my clients Wireless Security is an exercise in futility. For a client running an ASG 220 to add a single Wireless AP is $275 for the AP30 and then that AP costs them $720 per year for the subscription. No one in there right mind would do this.

                                      My recommendation is to sell to a Wireless Subscription that enables 1 or 2 Access Points with an attractive Price Point. This will make it easier to sell, which will in turn make Sophos more money.

                                      If we break it down the ASG 220 Wireless Security is $720…

                                      • Reporting: Granular Email Reports (Like Web Protection offers)

                                        I would like to be able to generate reports on the number of blocked/quarantined/delivered messages on-demand for a specified time period (i.e., day, week, month) for a particular user, domain or mail profile. Similar to the snapshot at the top of each quarantine report, but something that the admin can see and use for full system reporting.

                                        • VPN: Use Windows User as Automatic Credentials for HTML5 VPN

                                          Clientless SSL-VPN automatic login should use the logged in user.
                                          This is also usefull if the Astaro is setup with SSO, same user name and password in AD.
