  1. Disabled Emails security statistics - Have the UTM provide statistics and details for disabled features

    Have the UTM provide information regarding what enabling an email security feature would impact in an effort to justify and prepare for change.
    For example. If SPF is not enabled, process delivered mail and provide the domain list and count that would have failed the test allowing administrators to tune the setting and potentially notify the organisations prior to enabling the feature.
    This could then be used to recommend or justify that a setting be enabled

    • RED Device Internet Connection

      Currently if a RED Devices loses connectivity to the UTM the RED Device loses Internet connectivity.

      It would be most helpful, if there would be a way to keep the Internet Traffic in Split (Standard & Transparent) to continue to go straight out to to the Internet even if the UTM is not accessible.

      • Customization of quarantine notification emails

        We would like to be able to customize the notification emails that are being sent to users when an outgoing email has been quarantined.
        Currently it says:
        Subject: "Message delivery incomplete"
        Text: "Your message to the following recipients was quarantined: [...] quarantine reason: [...] Please contact your IT administrator for further assistance."

        It would be nice to change the text or even the layout to fit our corporate identity.

        • Logging for hotspot vouchers

          Tie the ip address where the voucher is used to the voucher code so that we can see where individual codes have been on the internet.

          A voucher network like the user network where it contains all the ip's where they have been used would be good. We can assign a single voucher to a single device for staff BYOD devices, but in some cases we can have one voucher for 300 devices (Guests BYOD). But we need to see where voucher code blah blah blah has gone on the internet.

          Many thanks

              • Add Information in voucher

                Hello

                I wanted to know if it's possible to add information on voucher to identify the user connected with it.

                In fact. Feature to add two fields or three (first name, last name, identity card number,...) and make these fields obligatory for the admin of the hotspot when generating voucher.

                The most important functionality in hotspot must be identification and recognition of user. Because in case of illegal surf. We have to get log information about the guest.
                With the actual hotspot, we can't know the user connected with the voucher.
                Add information will be helpful in these situation

                Best…

                • Failover for UTM to UTM RED Tunnel

                  When configuring a RED 50, we have the option to provide a secondary IP to the Server UTM in the event the primary IP on the Server end goes down. However, when configuring two UTMs to connect via RED Tunnel, there is no option on the Client UTM to configure a secondary IP to the Server UTM. It is really a critical feature needed for failover and would eliminate the need to create two RED Tunnels for each device connected. Why not port that feature from the RED 50 to the UTM?

                  • Replace Spam Detection Engine with Sophos Labs

                    Drop Cyren spam database and implement Sophos' own database (Sophos Labs) used in all other products, as the detection rate is much better and there are less false positives.

                      • Rename objects

                        Copernicus project

                        Add support to rename Policy rules name, IPSEC and SSL VPN tunnels name, Webfilter Policy and Category objects, Application Policy and Category objects, QOS rules and all other items.
                        This will Improve the management, it must be default to all objects. Currently to fix a simple typo error, we must to create a new policy or category and populate all items again. A simple task can turn into a hard task.

                          • Enable/Disable loggong for all rules at once

                            For all rules in Firewall and Application Control it would be great to have a button to disable or enable logging for all rules. Or even group wise.

                            This way temporary debugging is made easy and otherwise the load is low on the machine.

                            • Unequal Uplink Balancing

                              Sophos need to introduce a better option for traffic shaping. If there are two wan links with unequal capacity. There is no way that you can avoid on link from choking.
                              So far Sophos support connection ratio for uplink but a single connection can choke all the bandwidth of WAN Uplink.
                              In order to restrict a host you need to define bandwidth pool and that is very convenient if you have 500 users.

                              • Block IP's using Blacklist/Blocklist Service

                                Support the use of Blacklists/blocklists. Note that this feature was requested at link below and apparently Sophos thought that ATP would satisfy the need, however it does not provided the requested functionality, Therefore I am re-posting this as a new suggestion.

                                The old suggestion was marked as implemented by the ATP feature; however ATP is not what was wanted and generates too many false alerts. This is the prior feature request: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/1982075-network-security-block-malicious-botnet-bad-ip-s

                                Plain and simple: We want support for blocklists. Such as those found here: https://www.iblocklist.com. I would also like to specify a blocklist per network. So for example…

                                    • Improved Advanced Threat Protection Notification

                                      Currently, you can receive emails or SNMP traps when you get an ATP alert, but they provide very limited information. It would be very useful if these notifications provided a similar level of detail to the ATP section in the UI.

                                      This could help improve logging capabilities as well as easier administration.

                                      • queueing DNS groups

                                        as example DNS host github.com changes IP every 30 seconds:
                                        $ dig github.com +trace
                                        [....]
                                        github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.130
                                        [....]
                                        with multiple dns requests:
                                        github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.131
                                        github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.129
                                        github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.128

                                        but DNS host / DNS group checks every 2 minutes, and LAN servers
                                        accessing the host are not able if they have different IP for it as the utm9
                                        ==>
                                        my suggestion: DNS group should not remove "old" IPs or replace new IP if IP differs, it should do a FIFO queue and older IPs removing after an expiring time
