  1. Enhance Web Antivirus Configuration

    Currently we only have the option of selecting one, two or both antivirus engines (Sophos/Avira/Both). There does not appear to be anywhere to edit the settings of these scanning engines. I know from using both Sophos and Avira on desktops that they have numerous settings. Avira in particular allows the user to change heuristic sensitivity (high/medium/low) and also enable macro heuristics. With Avira you can also select what you want to include in detection (eg dialers/jokes/phishing, as well as traditional malware). Sophos Anti-Virus has the option of enabling detection of 'suspicious files' also, which I should imagine is Sophos' heuristic…

    • Display Web Protection Usage Reports by Hour or Minute

      Currently web usage reports in Web Protection are only searchable on a daily basis, the only way to get reports for specific hour of traffic or 10 minute periods is by utilising "Search Log File" function which is not displayed in a management friendly report even when utilising "Display in Report Format". Having the web usage reports selectable by time not just date would allow for much more management friendly reporting.

        • Endpoint Protection via MSI

          Can't believe that an 'Enterprise' grade product doesn't have the ability to push install the Endpoint client via MSI.

          Definitely a big issue.

          Please can we have this?

                • SPX Encryption > Receiver Password Portal Setup & Reset

                  A way to remove the need for Password Notifications send to User, Administator or Other. An external facing portal page that allows a notice to be sent to the receiver for them to register w/ e-mail verification to setup to access their password for the SPX attachment. Basically allowing a local service similar to Cisco RES for messages sent from your Sophos UTM. Obviously, this could be limited in that if a per-email password is used by the sender it would not be able to work. Also a password reset would only work for future e-mails as the PDF is…

                  • UTM RED bulk import feature

                    For larger implementations of UTM / RED, and to also benefit our PS offering - wouldn't it be great if we could import RED serial numbers from CSV directly into WebAdmin, to speed up the process?

                    The serial numbers are already available in SalesForce which would reduce the time taken to get this feature off the ground.

                    • SPX encryption: configure the minum password length from now fixed 8 characters to other (higher) values for generated one-time passwords

                      -->
                      I wish a new additional password length field in the GUI in the first tab „SPX Configuration“ of SPX Encryption for passwords of the type "Generated one-time password for every email", where I can configure longer passwords, which means longer minimum password lengths. E.g. 16 characters.

                      Background:

                      The sophos utm then by default generates passwords with a length of 8 characters.

                      Today, this insecure, when the attacker uses a brute force method with special GPU computers.
                      It may be cracked within less than 1 day.

                      The password length, that I can configure on the first tab „SPX Configuration“ of…

                        • hotspot

                          Allow custom "session expires" values with "Backend authentication" hotspot types, or at least increase to 1 year.
                          We have students that stay only for 1 year, would be great to allow for 1 year instead of asking every week to log in.

                            • Impplement SLAAC and RDNSS with IPv6 with optional DHCPv6 lease times

                              Optional DHCPv6 lease times is implemented, but COMCAST uses 4 hours, which causes the UTM to hang on SSL every 4 hours (not properly renewing the lease). The request is a custom box for time as well as keeping the drop-down menu.

                              Also D-Link routers use SLAAC and RDNSS with DHCPv6 because of improper router advertisements between different types of routers. The ULA option does not allow IPv6 to communicate to the UTM which is yet another feature (unicast) of IPv6.

                                  Sometimes you have to identify and resolve country blockings but ar not able to get the country with searching IP databases. Would be very nice when log names the found country. Perhaps this can be combined with other request depending mail logs.

                                      • Data control for Office 2013

                                        Log and/or Block attachments in Outlook 2013 (re: data control policy). Worked in Outlook 2010 which is one of the reasons we selected your product for our needs. Disappointed
                                        that it’s stopped working in Outlook 2013 as we now have to select a product replacement that will provide us this protection.

                                        • Backup : Voucher are not backup !

                                          When we change or restore an UTM configuration, all the Voucher are lost !
                                          It's a problème for us !
