  1. Allow Web Filtering By Firewall Rule

    Apply web filter profile to user or mac/mac list in firewall rules. Sonicwall did this and it was invaluable on our network.
    Example. User(John) AND Network = LAN -> WAN apply web filter profile (No Social Media)

    Not just apply profiles to networks. That's really limiting.

                • Upgrade UTM SSH package to avoid CVE-2013-4548 & CVE-2014-2532

                  The current UTM includes an older SSH version that shows up in PCI scans as having vulnerabilities CVE-2013-4548 & CVE-2014-2532.

                  Sophos support indicates that the vulnerabilities do not effect the UTM, but it's a hassle to have to explain that auditors. Just upgrading the SSH package on the UTM would avoid the issue.

                    I suggest you ...to revert the default net.ipv4.neigh.default.gc_thresh1 = 0 because the higher value that has been recently introduced causes black-holing of traffic if IPs get re-used by AWS ELBs in the same subnet as Sophos UTM.

                    Workaround 1: Manually set net.ipv4.neigh.default.gc_thresh1 = 0
                    Workaround 2: Place Sophos UTM and AWS ELBs in different subnets

                    • support for DNS Groups in Server Load Balancing

                      I suggest to ... implement support for DNS Groups in Server Load Balancing targets because today traffic is only directed to a single Elastic Load Balancer node and if load goas up AWS created more nodes at first and at second increases the size of the nodes which leads to AWS customers paying for nodes that are not used by Sophos UTMs. We have a high traffic website where we pay 4 of the largest nodes ELB nodes but only one is used.

                      • Confirmation of Hotspot terms and conditions should be variable

                        The maximum time after the terms and conditions have to be reconfirmed for the hotspot is 7 days. This time is too short for some customers. A variable input of the period would make the decision for customers flexible.

                        • Time based rules for traffic throttling or shaping

                          It would be very helpful to have time-based rules for traffic throttling or shaping. For example, users at our office access Facebook and we don't want to block it - just make it less of a burden on our Internet connection.

                          • Backup Remote Gateway for IPSEC VPN Tunnel

                            Main office has two ISPs, primary and backup, each with a separate WAN IP. VPN tunnel from remote office to the primary WAN IP. If primary ISP goes down, dynamic routing sends traffic out backup line. I need to be able to configure a backup Remote Gateway on the remote office UTM, so that if it can't establish a tunnel to the primary main office WAN IP, it will try to establish the tunnel to the backup WAN IP. (Very simple and do it all the time on Cisco ASAs).

                            • change the ssl vpn client to include auto connect.

                              I have several larger clients who would like to use the SSL vpn except they require the VPN tunnel to always be "always on" as long as there is internet access. Other vpn vendors such as Cisco permits this behavior.

                              • Server Load Balancing: Choose HTTP Response codes for failed servers other than 5xx (for ex. 404!)

                                By now only 5xx HTTP Response codes tell the SLB to disable a real servers (a failed one) and 200 for OK. We want to be able to determine our own HTTP Response Code to disable real servers like 404. This makes it way easier for an admin since he only has to check for a simple empty file - if its there -> 200 (up), if not -> 404 (down). We use this also with HAProxy and it works great.

                                • IPoA (IP over ATM) Dial Up Interface for a VOIP Connection

                                  Instead of PPPOE it would be nice to connect via an iPoA Connection. In Germany many providers use a second dial up Connection for Voip with extra vlan because QoS. iPoA is typicly bridged to the nic where also the pppoe connection get established. the AVMFritzbox also iPoA if Vlan is required for VoiP.

                                      • Add KIK.com IM client to application control

                                        Sophos please add the IM client to the application control list. It is an unfiltered IM app that kids love to use because it keeps no chat history etc. It leaks the user IP address for DDOS attacks and other uses.

                                        • Configurable HTTPS DH parameter in the Web Application Firewall

                                          The web application firewall cannot support HTTPS connections by Java 6/7 clients because the DH parameter for HTTPS is set to a value greater than 1024 and this is not configurable.

                                          For an easy reference for the issue:
                                          http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_ssl.html#sslcertificatefile

                                          The error message the clients will receive is:

                                          javax.net.ssl.SSLException: java.lang.RuntimeException: Could not generate DH keypair

                                          The only option is to manually add a DH-pair of 1024 or less into the first certificate generated by the sophos device under /var/chroot-reverseproxy/usr/apache/conf/ssl/ (and then, do that every time the configuration changes), or not use the WAF.

                                          Warnings for those who come across this post: …
