    • Block IP's using Blacklist/Blocklist Service

      Support the use of Blacklists/blocklists. Note that this feature was requested at link below and apparently Sophos thought that ATP would satisfy the need, however it does not provided the requested functionality, Therefore I am re-posting this as a new suggestion.

      The old suggestion was marked as implemented by the ATP feature; however ATP is not what was wanted and generates too many false alerts. This is the prior feature request: http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/1982075-network-security-block-malicious-botnet-bad-ip-s

      Plain and simple: We want support for blocklists. Such as those found here: https://www.iblocklist.com. I would also like to specify a blocklist per network. So for example…

      • Sophos Mobile Control - free licenses for use with UTM Home Edition

        5 should do the trick. Plenty generous, and free advertising of your MDM product.

          • Improved Advanced Threat Protection Notification

            Currently, you can receive emails or SNMP traps when you get an ATP alert, but they provide very limited information. It would be very useful if these notifications provided a similar level of detail to the ATP section in the UI.

            This could help improve logging capabilities as well as easier administration.

            • queueing DNS groups

              as example DNS host github.com changes IP every 30 seconds:
              $ dig github.com +trace
              [....]
              github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.130
              [....]
              with multiple dns requests:
              github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.131
              github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.129
              github.com. 30 IN A 192.30.252.128

              but DNS host / DNS group checks every 2 minutes, and LAN servers
              accessing the host are not able if they have different IP for it as the utm9
              ==>
              my suggestion: DNS group should not remove "old" IPs or replace new IP if IP differs, it should do a FIFO queue and older IPs removing after an expiring time

              • Support OTP for more facilities

                We need OTP support for Cisco VPN and L2TP over IPsec VPN. These are the only supported configurations that can be pushed to Sophos Mobile Control and used on iOS devices out of the box.

                  • Fully disable Tamper protection from Manage Groups tab

                    Currently the EP's own policy will override the group policy. It has been designed so that if you have one machine within a group that needs tamper protection disabled this can be done easily without having to create a new group and assign it a different policy. However when you need to migrate from UTM endpoints to Cloud endpoints this means you would have to go into each individual one and turn it off - not practical when you have over 1000 EPs.

                    • dublicated object detection

                      often when two admins work on the same utm they create rules with identical hosts but don't know the object name the other one gave, so they create their own object definition which points to an identical host.
                      Please include a warning when trying to create an existing definition and provide an option to find dublicated definitions and to combine them into one object.

                        • RED PCI Compliance Changes

                          PCI Compliance will always fail on current UTMs using RED. This is due to being unable to disable SSL v3 on this as well as being unable to change the certificates used (currently weak, not using at least 2048 bit keys). Please fix!

                          • Shorter AD Synchronization

                            We like to have a much shorter period for the AD-Synchronisation.
                            The sync interval is by default every 2 hours.
                            We need a sync intervall of 5 minutes or to make it costumable.

                                • Allow for the configuration of disabled features, such as Web Protection, so they're configured first before they're enabled.

                                  If your UTM is in production, and you want to enable a new feature, you must first enable it before you can configure it. However, some features will start interacting with network traffic as soon as they are enabled even without configuration.
                                  It would be beneficial to put features into "configuration" mode so that they can be configured and tweaked before being enabled fully for production.

                                  • Allow Firewall rules to be members of multiple groups

                                    Allow Firewall rules to be members of multiple groups so they can be associated with several rule sets.
                                    Or even allow them to be given tags so all rules can be listed that have a particular tag assigned.
                                    Sometimes it a firewall rule does not just fall under one group of rules.

                                    • NOT filtering for firewall rules (and anywhere else with rules)

                                      Could we have the Firewall interface modified to allow us to apply an inverse rule - that is, filter traffic that does not match the criteria we have put forward. Especially since IPtables can do inverse filtering just fine.

                                      It'd be nice if we could also do the same in the Exceptions tab for various protections, that would make them much more powerful.

                                      • Auto-create user objects based on Web SSO authentication

                                        Allow UTM to create user objects based on Active Directory authentication rather than creating them manually. E.g. for unblocking websites, it can already see the
                                        users in the web logs so should be able to add to the UTM?

                                        This means as soon as a user opens a web browser on a system which has AD configured, the UTM would have an option to auto-create the user this way. Then, it would
                                        be much simpler to add rules based on users or groups..

                                        Even better, a fully integrated AD solution which would read Groups and Users so you could then…

                                        • Support server-sent-events (HTML5)

                                          SSE being blocked by web protection. When you switch off Web Protection SSE will work again. Server-sent-events use the text/event-stream MIME type and the connection remains open for long periods of time. No data gets to the client when Web Protection is enabled - I'm guessing because it is treating it as a download and waiting for it to finish before passing on to the client.
