  1. Device Control - BitLocker - Encryption

    We are deploying Endpoint protection with device control and want to allow full access to encrypted drives and read only access to non-encrypted drives. We would like the device control to recognize BitLocker encrypted drives as encrypted devices.

    In addition, add SMTP notifications related to device control.

    • Mail filter to scan attachments of type message/rfc822 as if they were another email

      Ensure that emails with an attachment of type message/rfc822 have the attachment scanned as if it were a normal email. Currently, we can send email through the filter, with dangerous attachments inside an attached email - which is not ideal.

      • WebFilter

        On ourr FTMG we webfilter via IP Address ranges. Eg have a range set for students and another for Staff both recieveing differernt levels of Filtering. This should be a feature on UTM. We would consider purchasing it if this feature was available.

            • Display Reason & URL for Blocked Sites

              Policy Violators’ report does not show all reason for blocked traffic.
              For some it leaves blank. For example "connection reset by peer" or connection refused. If this occurs you then have to check the http log. So it would be good to have these included in the report

              • Limit access on IPSEC VPN Gateway

                To limit access on vpn gateway it should be possible to define "Allowed networks" analogue to the network service configuration for NTP.
                Default would be "Any" or a checkbox to enable access limitations.

                When only configured IPs or DynDNS hosts can reach the VPN gateway, any attacks are securely blocked by firewall rule.

                  • A Tool to Generate a backup file from a Template for import and export of Standard Templates for UTM.

                    I want to be able to manage a number of standard Templates.
                    When I have all the extra client information (the variable info from one customer from another) I want to be able to import this as a flat file (whatever format (csv)).
                    This will then be feed into the pre-configured Template and come out as a backup file (abf) ready to be imported into the UTM.
                    This will let those who manage lots of customers the ability to build a complex unit quickly and be able to deploy standards across multiple customers.
                    This will save time by not having…

                    • 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.

                      • Netgear Aircard 340u LTE Support

                        I walked into the ATT store and bought the only USB AC that they had - the Netgear AC 340u. I had asked if this was the only option - Yes was the reply.

                        The AC 340u does support linux. It would be super if the UTM and RED supported the AC340u.

                          • There should be a way to include the REASON for DLP action in the notification to the user

                            Currently, if a message is blackholed or otherwise acted on for triggering a DLP rule, the end user only knows that their message was blocked. There's no easy way to get the UTM to give them the reason (e.g., included credit card number).

                            That information is available in the logs, but requires someone with administrative access to the UTM to dig for it... would be far more useful if it could be easily reported to the offending user.

                            • Enterprise Console: Reporting on Device Control needs significant improvement to meet our business needs.

                              We need to be able to easily find devices to add them as exemptions, as well as track the use of exempted (authorised) devices. I believe the following changes will suffice. Show activity that is allowed as well as blocks and alerts, so this would show the use of devices that are allowed by the policy, ie those that are Allowed or Read Only, as well as those that are exempt. This, for instance, allows you to find out who last used a stick that goes missing, or work out who is using a device that they perhaps are not…

                              • Ability to use WAN Interface data to produce CQM charts

                                As the Interfaces, but more specifically the WAN interface, is monitored for it's availability on the UTM, it would be good if this could be expressed as a CQM style graph indicating any drops in connectivity.

                                Ideally this would be true CQM that would indicate packet loss on WAN connection etc, but initially just connection state would be good! (Seems a waste of data otherwise)

                                • Return original website category for Anonymizer

                                  Many customers have a legitimate use for Google Translate which is classified as an anonymizer when a website is passed through here. Could we return the original category of the website (also included in the URL) rather than the category for Google Translate? This would allow better control of the traffic and remove the only current option of completely allowing all websites through Google Translate or blocking all websites through Google Translate.

                                  Example URL: http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.hug-ge.ch

                                  • vpn autosignon

                                    I would like to see the VPN Client allow autosignon so a client would not have to type a username and password, This autosignon would also be useful if you want a one touch connection using SSL also.

                                        • Web Filtering IP Blacklisting

                                          When you blacklist an IP address it shows as malicious and is not saying "blacklisted"

                                          When you blacklist a DNS domain it shows first as category block when you haven't set it as blacklisted but then it will correctly show as "blacklisted" afterwards. Won't work in the IP blacklisting though.
