  1. Make onboard OTP usable for special virtuell webserver

    At the Moment we can use the new OTP Feature just for all virtuell webserver. Therefore, it is not possible to use this great new function in most implementations.

    An example, many customers want to publish Exchange Services like OWA, ActiveSync and Outlook Anywhere. OWA with OTP and ActiveSync without OTP. But that is not possible.

    I suggest, you implement a new authentication Profile for OTP that we can use in the site path Routing.

      • Allow more detailed modifying of UTM WAF rules and behaviour. (ModSecurity function)

        UTM preventing some internet traffic going to e.g. apache linux servers due to escaping of the \ which is required for all systems to be able to identify a character such as $ or @.
        When this happens using multiple layers of backslash escaping, Sophos treats this as an SQL Injection. There is currently no way of modifying this behaviour legally, and you need to enter SQL Injection Bypasses on particular pages on your Apache hosted site, which is not optimal.

        Giving end user some more power on what should and should not be captured via an advanced profile option,…

            To allow more than trigger/action to the SMTP Data Protection so:

            SPX Encrypt an email because the header had something like "Securely marked" in it

            AND

            Have the ability to reject any emails containing confidential information that you didn't want leaked such as national insurance number.

            • UTM WAF - Custom HEADER

              Add the ability to add custom HTTP Headers while processing HTTP requests through the WAF

              The idea will allow me to "copy" header data
              e.g.: X-My-Custom-Header: $x-forwarded-proto

              Use case:
              When running a server behind 2 layered AWS ELB the first x-forwarded-proto header is overwritten by the 2nd layer, that mean that the application server cant see the original user requested protocol

                • Sophos SMC console feature to remove device applications when installed by end users

                  Currently there is a limitation with the SMC console - device applications cannot be uninstalled remotely when the end user has installed it from the device.
                  We would like to see a feature from within the SMC console to manage all device applications - providing the ability to uninstall applications on devices e.g ipads/iphones whether they have been installed by the end user or not.

                  • Webfilter response for specific HTTPS requests (webfilter messages)

                    If Webfilter is configured in Standard Mode and HTTPS URL-Filtering is activated, and it is not an option to distribute the Proxy CA Certificate to the whole clients (because no domain membership), and the user requests for example a HTTPS Website with the result "host not found", the delivered HTTPS content to the client browser is destroyed (CSS and Images). We need a solution for our users.

                      • Web Protection: Ability to configure time allowed after 'Warn'

                        We would like to be able to configure how long browsing is allowed for after passing through a 'Warn'. It will allow us to give more flexibility to warn users for longer periods rather than them constantly getting cut out and having to click proceed again.

                        It is very annoying to have videos drop out when your watching them and then having to click proceed again.

                        • Put all Remote Access>Client Options under Remote Access>%VPN type%>%Remote Access Profile%

                          The reason for this is to allow different domains and DNS settings per VPN profile. This allows for companies with odd networking setups, like a single internet access point for multiple domains on different servers, to use the same Sophos UTM for VPN traffic and authentication.

                            • LDAP/TOTP Server proxy

                              Astaro/Sophos UTM will happily use an external LDAP server as an authentication source. And then apply over that its own TOTP layer. But it cannot provide that TOTP service to other devices, except for internal websites using the reverse proxy.

                              I'd like to see Astaro offer an external facing LDAP service, as a proxy for other LDAP servers with an optional OTP enhancement. This would allow an organisation to provide a single OTP source against a whole range of services such as mail servers, file servers and much more; all without configuring multiple OTP servers.

                              • TCP Connection Timeout - Modification

                                It's important in case of using EAS (Exchange Active Sync) that the TCP connection timeout can be increased within the gui. At the moment only one unsupported workaround exists:

                                cc [Enter]
                                packetfilter [Enter]
                                timeouts [Enter]
                                ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait$ [Enter]

                                It's an important feature if you use EAS.

                                • RED: USB Tethering from iPhone / android

                                  We want the ability to use an iPhone ( or Android ) as a modem via USB tethering in the event of an internet outage at the site.

                                  Instructions from IT would then be as simple as asking the Branch manager to plug their iphone into the red and turn hot spotting on.

                                    I believe we should be able to specify which authentication server to use for each login method.
                                    It should not fallback to any other servers not specified.

                                      • Allow a comment to be added to the mac address table.

                                        Allow a comment to be added to the mac address table so that you can record what devices the address is for. This makes it easy to manage the list if a device is to be removed.

                                        It would also be nice if the wireless clients list could look up the comment and display it next to the record so you could see the device in the list.

                                        • Mail manager hold

                                          It would be nice if there was a "HOLD" feature in the mail manager. If there was a way to “hold” the e-mails on the UTM – when I was done checking the exchange servers, I could then “unhold” them and release the e-mails.
