    • Add a Feedback menu item within Sophos Antivirus Home Edition for Mac

      I wanted to tell you about how much I like Sophos Antivirus for Mac, Free Edition and realized that you could increase your customers input if you built in a Feedback menu item into the program itself.

      • dhcp lease alive or dead - colour coding

        would be nice to have colour coding in the DHCP Lease Table view to know immediately if leases are about to expire, expired, or alive/dead

        about to expire = orange (light version of nice orange used in fonts for ui)
        expired = grey
        alive = green (light version similar as above: signifies machine is online)
        dead = red (light version: signify machine is not online)

        • Making visible the WLAN MAC Adress of the AP

          It would be great to see the WLAN MAC adresses of the AP's directly in WebAdmin. This would be very helpful for example when creating a Heatmap .

          • Banner for outgoing mail with attachements

            Customer would like the same function in the UTM as per the Email Appliance to specify what types of messages they can add a banner to.

            For example, they currently want to add a banner for outgoing messages with attachments only - not all messages.

            • Config rollback to prevent lost device

              It would be nice to have a feature whereby you could make changes but if lost connection to the device then restart to roll back config prior to changes. I guess similar to cisco's running config and startup config.

              In the Cisco world, many times i've used a reload in 00:05 then made complex changes knowing that if a problem occurs and I lose the device it'll automatically reload in 5 minutes and i regain access.

              • Netflix integration

                I would like to see full Netflix integration as an option rather than multiple subset of rules and exceptions.

                  • hostapd & WiFi cards

                    I'd be delighted to have my mPCIe WiFi card showing up in the interface list so i could build up a WiFi segment with hostapd directly from my UTM 9.x device... Ahhh yeah that'll smoke everything else for sure =)

                    • Provide SCEP CA certificate enrolment for mobile devices and enterprise WIFI

                      Provide SCEP CA certificate enrolment interface for mobile devices for at least a) VPN certificates and b) Enterprise Wifi certificated

                      CA could be:

                      1) Service local UTM gateway
                      2) UTM Gateway to act as secondary CA, primary located internal network
                      3) Handle SCEP locally and Forward CA requests to internal CA

                      • Enable detection of suspicious files in Endpoint Security via the UTM

                        Currently there are limited settings available to configure Sophos Endpoint Security and Control via the UTM. Any settings changed on the endpoints (eg to scan for 'suspicious files') is overridden whenever the UTM enforces it's policy. I would like to see an option added to the UTM to enable detection of 'suspicious files' (not just suspicious behaviour). Allowing all settings on the endpoints to be configured by the UTM would be even better!

                          • Port forwarding/NAT configuration wizard

                            Currently, it is a time consuming nightmare for an admin, especially one new to Sophos, to configure port forwards. Doing something as simple as opening Port 80 for a web server, that would also be accessible from the LAN, is needlessly complicated. It might be nice to have powerful features in the GUI, but something should be done to make this common task more intuitive. On an old Linksys router, this is an intuitive, 3 minute task. I'm assuming most end users are not configuring port forwards every day, which means they are not experts, and it needs to be…

                              We could view this list of auto banned IPs and get information like Who/what/where/when/how and decide to leave them on the list, remove them, or change the ban…

                                As we already have for the search engine reports, we could have an tab for youtube/vimeo(YNI) reports where we can have what kind of videos the users is watching, with title, duration, classification, time, size, and so on.

                                Know how GB of data googlevideo.com transfered is almost useless for managers, but know the user behavior as we have in search engine reports no other product do in the market do.

                                We can get the youtube pattern from the log files, something like:

                                  • 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
