  1. List what Content Control Lists Rule triggered an email alert

    It would be nice if the "Notification regarding potentional leak of data" email sent to administrators would list what Content Control Lists Rule triggered the alert.

    I have my UTM set to allow the email but alert me when content is suspected to have been confidential. I was hoping to use the alerts to help decide what rules are going to be useful in my environment but without an indication of what triggered the alert the message is not very useful.

    It also appears that "potential" is spelled wrong in the subject line.

      • alphabetically sort web filtering subcategories when configuring categories

        The subcategories are not sorted when we setup a new category. Could it be possible to sort them alphabetically ?

        • UTM WAF - Custom HEADER

          Add the ability to add custom HTTP Headers while processing HTTP requests through the WAF

          The idea will allow me to "copy" header data
          e.g.: X-My-Custom-Header: $x-forwarded-proto

          Use case:
          When running a server behind 2 layered AWS ELB the first x-forwarded-proto header is overwritten by the 2nd layer, that mean that the application server cant see the original user requested protocol

          • 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!

                  • Information about which link is up and down on SNMP

                    In the current version, Sophos UTM send notification about uplink up and dow by e-mail and snmp. On e-mail, come specified which link is down, but in snmp traps no. It will be really cool, if in snmp trap information contain the information about which link is down or up.

                      • Youtube Reports

                        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:
                        http\://www\.youtube\.com/watch\?v=(\S{11})\S+\s(\w+\.\w+)

                          • Name resolution on Wireless Status

                            When you click on Wireless protection a list of connected devices show up, but the UTM is able to identify the hostname only for networks that the UTM is managing the DNS. If a wifi network is set to "bridged to AP LAN" the UTM shows only the MAC address instead of IP or DNS name.

                                    • 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
