  1. Two-Factor Authentication (OTP, etc) - limit to specific networks for WebAdmin and other portals.

    Upgrade the existing Two-Factor implementation to have the ability to exclude specific networks/VLANs/VPN connections. If I have a "secure" network connection or I come in through a VPN connection, allow me to define what portals or resources will require OTP re-authentication.

    • Add more card compatibility for token-based authentication for SafeGuard Enterprise drive encryption

      Specifically we are using a PIV card standard and the card is supplied by HID Global (purchased ActivIdentify 4 years ago). Yet the support matrix doesn't show support for this card nor does it show anything listed by HID Global who is one of the top manufacturer's/providers of smart cards, smart card solutions, and smart card readers in the industry.

        • Antispoofing

          Hello,
          we are having the problem, that we are getting mails from external with our own smtp mailaddresses. To solve this problem I have to create an exception list with our smtp domains and deselect receiververification, right?
          Why isn`t there an button or build in function for antispoofing our own mail addresses. It could never be that someone send mails with our smtp domains from outside our own Mail Organisation. So if there comes an mail from outside with one of our smtp addresses the UTM had to block it directly!

          Thanks!

            • Sophos, an AV company, the UTM AV needs more granularity settings

              Sophos, an AV company,The UTM AV needs more granularity settings. What file types am I scanning??? Who knows..... I may have the hardware resources and I want to scan all file types, I have zero options with Sophos UTM. Take a look at Untangle, that gives you full control to dictate what you scan with it's two AVs Granted, one is Clam AV that is next to worthless, but boy you have a lot of granular control that is a far cry from ZERO control in Sophos UTM.

              • Support PPPoE RFC 4638 (MTU > 1492)

                This has been requested in the past and marked as completed, however, it is still not working.
                Even if an MTU of 1500 is set via the GUI, when running ifconfig still shows MTU 1492 on ppp interface.

                This is really needed in Spain as more and more ISP's are using MTU of 1500

                thanks

                  • Wireless Hotspot session viewing

                    It would be handy to have the ability to view active sessions for backend authentication. This can help prevent account sharing. Control of sessions and limiting hotspot sessions one user can have would also be great.

                        • Ability to add site name to grey space between "UTM" and user who is logged in.

                          When managing multiple UTMs it would be nice to have the interface show you in a very obvious way which UTM you are logged into . The grey space between the UTM version and username would be good place for that as it is persistent across all menu options.

I'm currently running ac-series wireless to which this traffic should be treated / logged / managed the same as when using the OLDER available wireless devices from Sophos / Astaro.

                              Need to extend monitoring ability of NIC to WAN to ISP connectivity. When the ISP (i.e. Comcast) disconnects they provide you with no details. Need UTM to provide better / more complete logging method to identify that the UTM is Not the point of interruption. This detail is needed to force ISP to fix their problem as well for improved UTM / Intranet considerations of config.

                                  • log of Blocked Domains / IP addresses - improve upline reporting & Black list management

                                    Need an accumulation log of Domains / IP addresses of attack sources. Probe IPS or other data resources so that the Black List (blocked items) can be forwarded to the ISP or other firewalls. This will better sync protection across the entire network. This will better aid the ISP in identifying and blocking attacks.

                                    • provide Shell access via HTTPS access to the UTM.

                                      Need to be able to launch "shell access" to allow for assorted maintenance / troubleshooting tasks and so from being logged in via HTTPS.

                                        • The UTM should support Chrome browser updates and downloading extensions by default

                                          We had to define these exceptions

                                          ^https?:\/\/([A-Za-z0-9.-]*\.)?pack\.google\.com\/([A-Za-z0-9.-]*)?\/chrome\/
                                          ^https?:\/\/([A-Za-z0-9.-]*)?\.google\.com\/.*update

                                          and a firewall rule to allow direct access to Google server, to enable chrome updates for the client PCs. This was very time consuming. The UTM should support Chrome browser updates and downloading extensions by default.
