      • Embedded rules for Cloud networks

        Please provide definitions for Cloud Networks, embedded and managed/updated automaticaly by Sophos. For example, a group of definition for networks used by Office365 that we can use to define a firewall rule such as: all internal web access to Office365 network group.
        The Office365 network definition must be regulary updated by Sophos UTM updates...

        • system tray icon notice, like a blinking red Sophos shield, or a pop-up balloon that requires user intervention to close for a quarantine

          This feature will lower our risk profile by engaging user intervention upon infection more quickly. When a user is aware of a problem, they can move to remedy
          it without an administrator having to locate/contact them to take action. The common response is, “why didn’t Sophos tell me sooner?” In some cases they are upset that they are being spoken too at all because it implies that they could be in trouble so they
          take an immediate defensive posture. This is not conducive to our ongoing cooperative relationship. I therefore would rate this as an importance level 2. It does…

            • Show the unlinked interfaces in HA

              Please show in the webadmin the unlinked interfaces of the ***** instead of only "UNLINKED". Now you have to login to the ***** and find with ethtool which interfaces are actually unlinked.

                • Refresh button for DYNDNS to force update

                  There needs to be a way to force an update and refresh of the IP to the DNS vendor. There currently is no way to do this. Turning it off and back on does not do this. If for any reason the IP gets set from another location it will not update with the correct IP because the service does not see that the IP on the firewall has changed.

                    • add OTP to SUM

                      currently the auth mechanism on the SUM only uses userid and password. The current OTP system in the UTM would be beneficial to SUM as well.

                      • automatic block incoming TOR clients dynamic, means every traffic from tor to my webmail should be blocked

                        Hello,

                        it would be really fine if we can block all incoming TOR and anonymous VPN clients. This should be possible for all incoming connections.

                        a list of exit nodes are here:
                        https://check.torproject.org/exit-addresses

                        this list should be "imported" automatic scheduled.
                        for now, there is an option "block clients with bad reputation" for webserver protection, but this is not working (using latest firmware )
                        Firmware version: 9.209-8
                        Pattern version: 69668

                        thats it

                        • RAM Usage in percentage

                          I would be able to use SNMP to monitor the RAM Usage in percentage, as displayed in the UTM Web GUI. With the current OIDs I can get only some basic values for system memory and I need the (exact) value for the RAM Usage in percentage.

                            I have to add this port to a lot of networks although it is a standard SMTP port... It would be handy should it be in the default e-mail messaging group.

                            • Add a spam score for domain age

                              A lot of the spam that is getting through our current mail filtering is coming from .US domains that are less than an hour old (definitely less than a day). Since blacklisting works when something is known to be bad, this class of spam is harder to hit as the domains are still wearing diapers.

                              Any chance of having a score that checked the domain registration date? If it were weighted high on our system, I would've been spared seeing my last dozen spammy offers for car insurance, russian brides and bogus gift cards from Amazon, JC Penny(their spelling, not…

                              • Add a Cancel button to the "Reporting Direction" screen.

                                Often times I click on something in a Reporting screen just to see if the breakdown is potentially interesting, but then I want to cancel out and keep browsing. Currently this isn't possible because the Reporting Direction screen requires you to pick another report. Please add a Cancel button to this screen!

                                  Please allow users to define a starting screen on WebAdmin, with the ability for an Admin to set it for them. My HR users only use the Reporting screens, and usually just Web Protection. It would be nice if their accounts could be set to take them directly to the Web Protection reports screen when they login.

                                    • Update dyndns hostname with the public IP address used by RED to connect to UTM

                                      UTM already shows in the main RED tab the IP addresses used by the RED devices do connect to the UTM. It would be great if this IP address could be used to update a dyndns host name and thus allow monitoring if the internet link of the remote side of the tunnel, when dynamically assigned IP are used on the remote side. Today, on a dropped RED connection, there is no way to know if the problem is with the remote internet link or the tunnel between sites.

                                      • WAF Reverse Proxy with authentication: add authenticated username in http header

                                        If WAF authentication is selected to be done by the UTM, the username of the authenticated user should be added in the http request header sent to the backend web server. Im addition the groups should be added in another header attribute. That would be a function comparable to IBM Webseal and it's http hread iv-user and iv-groups.

                                        For security, this feature should be combined with mutual https authentication, i.e. adding a https client certificated by the UTM to prevent modification of the http request header between UTM and backend.

                                        • Allow to disable the tray icon from the UTM console

                                          I don't want the end users to touch or interact with the endpoint protection in any way. For this I usually disable the icon and balloons modifying the endpoint configuration file.

                                          It would be very convenient to disable this icon from the UTM console, to avoid having to login in the endpoints and modify that file manually.
