  1. Conncurrent Connections per Host

    Currently, Sophos UTM allows you to see Concurrent Connections on the Dashboard, Interfaces & Routing page as well as Logging & Reporting --> Network Usage --> Bandwidth Usage for a Total Connection usage count.

    It would be useful to illustrate a real time breakdown for which Hosts are occupying said Concurrent Connections. I've been able to track TCP Connections via ip_conntrack, however, I'm sure the Sophos UTM has a cleaner approach that could be used to isolate connections at the IP level.

      • IKEv2 support

        We would like to see IKEv2 support so that we can connect to Azure.

        Otherwise this will be a deal breaker and we will be forced to use other appliances very soon.

        • SPX

          When a recipient receives an SPX encrypted e-mail with inline photos the photos do not appear in the PDF file and are instead attachments inside the PDF. Why not render the e-mail with the photos exactly as it would look if it were received in an e-mail client. We have a customer who has a great deal of difficulty explaining to the recipients how to retrieve the pictures that are attached inside the PDF especially those who use smartphones or tablets to receive the SPX PDF. If they could just open the PDF and see what they need to see…

          • When creating firewall rules they should be enabled instantly

            Why don't newly created firewall rules activate automatically? Invariably I forget to go to the end of the list and switch the rule to on after I create it. At least take me to the end of the list after it is created if you can't default them to on. I'm not creating a new rule just so it can sit there disabled, why would it default that way?

                • generate a report for any inactive accounts

                  feed back from customer

                  For PCI compliance, we must deactivate user accounts which have not been used in over 90 days. It would be nice if the Sophos had a built-in report that could list user accounts which have not been used in X number of days.

                  Currently the only way I can think to accomplish this would be to go to Logging & Reporting->Remote Access->Session and generate a Connections report with a start and end date denoting a 90 day period, export it as CVS, strip out all but the most recent session for a given user, then manually…

                          • modify the appliance certificate so that its compatible with both apple and android devices.

                            At present you are unable to install the SOPHOS appliance certificate on android devices (to stop the invalid certificate messages when HTTPS scanning is on). We were able to successfully install the certificate on a android device and apple device after we edited it i.e. removing all the information before the BEGIN and END statements.

                                      • RED : Service based option to manage traffic from RED to UTM

                                        I would love to see an option where i can choose internet traffic to go from local internet line rather then RED IPSec tunnel to UTM to reduce bandwidth load on upload tunnel.
                                        A service based option where we can divert traffic for example HTTP, SMTP to use local internet line where red is connected and DNS, DHCP, FTP to use RED tunnel going towards UTM.

                                        • SSL VPN on multiple interfaces

                                          It would be nice to select 2 or more interfaces on the settings of the SSL remote access. We have an UTM with multiple WAN addresses. One of the addresses is used for 443 (SSL) NAT to an internal webserver. But we want to let the UTM listen on 2 other addresses for incoming SSL VPN connections on port 443 TCP. We can only select one interface or any. But with any the UTM sees the conflict with the SSL NAT.
