  1. Multi-user device

    If a user logs on to a PC, and authenticates on the UTM using browser portal, and then logs off. Before their session expires, another user logs on to the same machine...and browses as the first user!

    Other than shortening the session timer (which isn't a solution since it would force users to re-authenticate over and over) there doesn't seem to be any way to solve this.

    Or, another scenario would be a terminal server. Same problem.

    What checkpoint does is to provide a multi-user agent. Source ports for browsing is different range for each user.

    Otherwise a pretty solid…

    • Mac PUA

      Feature request: Addition of Adware/PUA and suspicious files detection for Mac.

      Company and Contact Information
      Company: Future Publishing
      Contact: it.administration@futurenet.com
      Sophos Partner (if applicable): Insight

      Sophos Product Information
      Sophos Product: Sophos Endpoint Protection Advanced
      Version in Production: Sophos Enterprise Console 5.1.0.1839

      Feature Request Summary
      How will this new feature address your business requirements?:

      We have already had cases of users being infected by Adware/PUA. Sophos for Mac has zero detection for these, yet on Windows it does. We strongly feel that Adware/PUA detection for Mac should be included in the product. Since 2011 there has been a sharp increase in…

      • Improve reporting features. I need to have a report that shows machines that have out of date virus definitions.

        Improve reporting features. I need to have a report that shows machines that have out of date virus definitions. That seems like a standard report that should already be included. Especially since this is the type of information that auditors request.

        • Check of necessary data (up2date) before starting an update process of the version up

          There is a strong improvement demand from a end user.
          SophosUTM checks that it keeps necessary data (up2date) before starting an update process
          of the version up appropriately and wants you to refuse version up if a condition is not set.
          I shall check it at the time of HA constitution equally.

          Each of the two apparatuses which became the problem was in a condition of "Up2date".
          Therefore I carried out "Factory reset", but a reset of becoming it was not accomplished redundancy normally.
          Two that purpose has been initialized. As a result, I will do "Clean Install" with Two.

          • Authentication: Possibility to authenticate ADS users based on their Domain membership

            It must be possible for the ADS user to logon the Userpotal due to their domain membership.

            Example 1: Sales \ John Smith
            Example 2: Marketing \ John Smith

            How can the user be distinguished if they have different access rights ? Until now, the system can not distinguish that.
            Users have until now always the same access though different access rights are defined for both users

            • enable smarthost SSL on SMTP port 465

              Many ISPs utilize port 465 with SSL encryption for outgoing mail. There doesn't appear to be a way to enable SSL via port 465 via the SMTP proxy within UTM in version 9.310-11.

              This configuration is supported by mail clients (MS Outlook, etc.), but doesn't appear to be supported by the Sophos UTM. With people using this in a home/SOHO environment, it seems that this would be a beneficial addition.

              • Web Filter: Bypass user can only bypass certain categories

                Is it possible to define the categories that can or cannot be bypassed rather than all or nothing. This would be useful for schools/colleges who would like to enable students to bypass particular categories with a staff provided code.

                • usability improvement : improve labels

                  Improve information labels in the local console : "virus data date" is not concerning virus identities but update date of the detection engine.
                  Translations are also concerned by that. May be the network console too.

                  • Improve reporting for Advanced Threat Protection

                    Presently ATP reports the IP of the advanced threat. It does not report the DNS name.

                    In most larger networks, all DNS requests go through an internal DNS server, Domain Controller or whatever. Therefore any alert from the ATP will identify the DNS server as the requesting host.

                    For Windows DNS logging the brief logging does not capture the IP address returned from the resolver, only the DNS name submitted. Whilst it is possible to turn on complete logging which will return this information such logging is very, very verbose, and it is generally impractical to have permanently turned on.

                      • IEEE 802.1X authentication on RED devices

                        It would be great if you could define MAC-based authentication on the RED devices with 802.1X and a RADIUS server to ensure that just our own notebooks and phones on the remote locations can enter our company network. Foreign MAC-adresses should not be authenticated and blocked.

                                When using Web Filtering in Decrypt & Scan mode websites that use legacy encryption (ie TLSv1, TLSv1.1) report certificate warnings. The sites are inaccessible unless the Intermediate CA's are imported under Web Protection > Filtering Options > HTTPS CA's. Customer's need an option to support legacy encryption in Decrypt & Scan mode to allow access to these websites if they choose.

                                • Add Dropcam traffic to Application Control

                                  Dropcam is a WIFI camera by a company called Nest. Nest creates the Nest thermostat, and the Nest Protect smoke alarms.
                                  Here is a link to what Dropcam is: https://www.dropcam.com/

                                  Sophos UTM shows Dropcam traffic as "OpenVPN" using TCP 443
                                  It would be helpful if we could see this traffic as Dropcam traffic

                                    • Google Domains Dynamic DNS

                                      Google Domains includes support for dynamic DNS (see https://support.google.com/domains/answer/6147083) which uses the dyndns2 protocol. It would be useful to have Google Domains as an option within the UTM's list of dynamic DNS providers.

                                      • Support for more Windows Active Directory login formats

                                        Please support more allowed AD login formats for pre authentication and/or implement the possibility to rewrite (with regex) the login strings before authentication.

                                        I have lot of ActiveSync users in a multiple domain environment for example and they are pre authenticated with a TMG. At the moment it isn’t possible to move the service to the UTM. Our ActiveSync clients (iPhone/Windows Phone) authenticate in most cases with the following formats:

                                        NT4-domain\username
                                        W2K-domain\username

                                        With a rewriting feature I would rewrite W2K-domain\username” to username@W2K-domain (UPN-Style). The user could be authenticated with LDAP now.

                                        • Set RTS and CTS Thresholds

                                          Often to troubleshoot hidden node and near/far problems the best method is to change RTS and CTS thresholds. These are often configurable on the router at the AP level. This should be possible through the Wireless Protection settings.
