  1. Reporting: Per-User Activity Report

    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.

          • Networking: Virtual Router Redundancy Protocol (VRRP)

            I think it would be a good idea for Astaro to have VRRP capability. I know that it can be covered (at some point) with Uplink Balancing & Multipath Rules, or with Clustering/HA, but sometimes you have existing routers from other vendors that you don't want to throw them, and still provide some kind of failover capability to your network.

              • UserPortal: Different access lists for Internal/External

                Please split the configuration for the Userportal in two ranges, one for the external access (with a external ip) and the other for internal access (with a private internal ip) , with the possibility to create differences in offered modules so certain things on the UserPortal are not available to a user unless they are Internal for example.

                • Web Security: Exceptions for Content Filter Overriding

                  The "bypass blocking" is a very useful feature, but it could represent a lack of security because admin cannot choose which url category cannot be bypassed.

                  For example, I don't like that my users can bypass content filtering for Illegal Software, Anonymizers and Malicious sites, but I can accept that they can bypass "Incidental Nudity" (a category that in some cases may be incorrect).

                      • Endpoint Status Overview & Filter

                        In the Endpoint Protection Status page we actually can sort manged endpoints by Online and Alert status. The feature should be changed to "filter by" instead "sort by":

                        - Status OK
                        - Status Alert
                        - Status Offline
                        - Status (whatever other status are possible here....)
                        - All Clients

                        If you actually choose a specific status (Alert / Offline etc.), all other clients with a other status should be hidden. Otherwise the overview page will become fast unreadable with >10 or 20 EP's, because always ALL EP's are shown - independently of their status, which makes it hard to get a…

                        • WebAdmin: Custom Administration Roles

                          Expand granularity of WebAdmin roles. Current access gives an "Office Manager" too much control across too many areas under each "manager" or "auditor" level term. We have the need to let one person Release Spam and add URLs to control office traffic

                          It would be nice if there was a list of available areas and operations with the ability for us to make a role composed of our selections.

                          • Authentication: Support for AD PC Groups

                            Customers want to give the PCs special Website access (Not the User who are logged in). So, if we could make AD PC Groups, and use these AD Groups in the source network of the Web Protection Profiles, then we don't need to create each PC in the WebAdmin. This would be great because if someone installs a new PC, we dont have to touch the Astaro.

                                  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.

                                    • AstaroOS: IPMITOOL Utility

                                      With ipmitool you can configure IPMI cards like Dell DRAC, HP iLO, etc. It'll be nice to be able to configure the card without rebooting the hardware.

                                      Additionally with this package you can remote control failed devices (e.g. by iLO Serial-over-Lan) or reset the hardware.

                                      • VPN: Local VPN ID choices when using Pre-Shared-Key

                                        If one side of a VPN is another product, it might not accept an 'ANY Remote VPN ID' option, while the UTM doesn't have a fixed IP.
                                        Thus, the other VPN gateway doesn't know the UTM IP, so it cannot use the IP as peer VPN ID. UTM cannot change its local VPN ID when we set up the Authentication type as Pre-Shared Key. The default local VPN ID is the external IP address and cannot be changed.

                                        Please support changing the local VPN ID when the Authentication type is Pre-Shared Key, then we can use hostname or email address…

                                        • Network Protection: Create firewall rules to automatically "blacklist" an "attacker."

                                          I'd like to turn on 'reactive rules' to start dropping all traffic from source IPs that trip a threshold of IPS or PF rules.

                                          Say someone is scanning your website for IIS vulnerabilities and trips 20 IPS rules in 1 minute (administrator defined parameters), then the UTM would create a rule at the top to block all traffic to and from the attacking source IP.

                                          Bonus points for letting the rule dissolve after N hours as well as being able to turn this rule on for specific interfaces or subnets, You could link it to the geo-location system so that…
