      • ATP Recent Threads Overview in SUM

        It is possible to manage the Advanced Threat Protection over SUM4.

        But except of the CRIT-861-notification or checking the UTM, there is no way to see what UTMs had recent events.
        i think it would make things easier if there was a overview about that threats in either the Configuration>ATP section or in the Monitoring>Threats section.

        • Add access controls for RED "Listening" Service

          As a Sophos Partner, I'm increasingly getting hammered by clients who have to subject themselves to audits in order to do business. Therefore I am asking that Sophos add access controls to the RED listening service. I am requesting that the RED service on the UTM be configured to use any arbitrary IP address on any of the WAN interfaces, and only allow connections from RED devices from known IPs. Here's why:

          I have clients who fail PCI compliance audits because of the self signed IP. I know that the 1 CA trust model is better, but the auditors my…

            • MailSecurity: certificate download via LDAP/OCSP for S/MIME

              it should be possible to automatically download S/MIME certificates from LDAP and encrypt outgoing mails. Also it should be possible to enable OCSP for CRLs.
              Thanks.

                • Output Interpreter

                  I'm missing the "Output interpreter" which you can find on Cisco homepage. Cisco is providing this feature on their homepage. The Output interpreter can interpret the log which you have from the router and much more.

                    • (Webserver Protection) WAF + (Network Protection) Server Load Balancing.

                      It would be great if there was a way to use the WAF but with Server Load Balancer setup in the Network Protection area or at least have the same type of control if not even more types of load balancing controls then there are now.

                      As noted in another feature suggestion of having Layer 7 checks in the WAF Load balancer would be great. And I agree. But along those same lines I also have needs to specify load to not be round robin and to weight it. Which you can do to a degree in the Network Protection…

                      • time-of-click protection for email spear-phishing attack

                        Many of today's threats, begin with a spear-phishing attack: a single,
                        carefully crafted email that tricks a recipient into clicking a link to download malware or open a malicious attachments.

                        Handling this type of emails like proofpoint would be really nice to have in UTM as email protection appliance. Handling is to actually replace links, attachements so everything runs sandboxed if suspicious.

                        • Implement a UDP helper

                          You really need to implement a UDP helper (akin to Cisco's 'ip forward-protocol udp' command) to selectively forward UDP broadcast traffic to other networks. Such traffic is commonly used to auto-discover systems and services.

                                • Enable the admin to remove unused Website Tags in Web Filtering

                                  If one defines a website tag in the UTM for a collection of URLs, then later desires to fully delete the tag (the tags remain in the configuration db even if not assigned to any URLs), there is currently not a way to do this. I contacted support and they said this would be a feature request (seems like missing basic functionality to me).

                                    clients on a daily basis. 90% of these are listed on spamhaus sbl or dbl for either ip or domain address. our users don’t want to be burdened with file submission. This would allow for nearly 100% spam filtering.

                                    • Join Workplace as Client AuthN

                                      Starting Windows 8, there is a feature called Workplace. It is using Email and Password to identify a User (it will lookup an SRV record on the email's domain name to identify the server to whom it has to talk to) and finally it will enroll the client with a certificate.
                                      Sophos could use this in order to identify clients on the UTM. First enroll with a UTM username and then identify the user for e.g. Web Protection.

                                      • SNMP Set Commands

                                        It would be great to send snmp set commands to set for example the default route trough a third party interface

                                          Realtime block list. Add the ability for Sophos to include reference to RBLs such as Spamhaus and spamcop. Apparently, doing this at the exchange level while using Sophos is not a good idea, so it would be nice if we could have the ability to set this up from the Pure Message console.

                                          thanks
