  1. Delete activity logs

    I would like to have feature like to delete the activity logs, not sure how long it is available or it is eating CPU, in that case we must have feature unnecessary log files which we can see in the Management.

    • Social Media Filtering Category

      Adding a Social Media/Networking as a built-in category for the SWA. We are getting increasing pressure to be able to manage traffic to social networks, but our SWA has no easy way to do that, since there is no built-in category for it.

        • 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.

            • Make is possible to utilize multiple interface addresses when uplink balancing is in use.

              I would like to be able to group IP2, IP3, etc. of both WAN1 and WAN2 to be used for outbound Masquerading of specific networks. Right now I can only select the Uplink Interfaces Primary Address.

                • Sophos RED Wifi Support

                  Integrate WLAN function into Sophos RED. It make really less sence to have a smart product and needings to blow up only for Wifi.

                  Scenarios like mixing up power supplies WAN Cables, Wifi Cables etc. will be solved.

                  A dedicated Access Point next to a RED is like a Show Stopper for a Home Office Solution.

                  • Please replace the service definition Kerberos (TCP) with Kerberos (TCP/UDP)

                    Please replace the default service definition Kerberos (TCP) with Kerberos (TCP/UDP). The firewall drop a lot of Kerberos packets (UDP). The Sophos support told us that the UDP doesn't exist for Kerberos but the Openlive Log is very clear.

                    • search across ALL Logs as single search

                      Need to be able to search all logs in a single search effort. When attempting to troubleshoot an attack or UTM problem a Wild Card or other search of all logs would best serve the troubleshooting process. Need controls of All Logs in day increment as searching all logs forever would be time consuming versus a aid to the daily / weekly troubleshooting process.

                      • Global Bot / Script Kiddie / Brute Force IP Blacklist

                        Sophos should maintain a blacklist of Bots / Script Kiddies / Brute Force attackers based on big data of failed logins on UTM's.

                        Problem to solve:
                        There are lot of (often automated) login attempts to the different publicly available UTM facilities as SMTP (authenticated relaying), User Portal, Webadmin, SSH, Reverse Proxy. On my UTM I have for example since weeks a ongoing brute force attacks on the smtp proxy, as authenticated relaying is allowed on it. Blocking those bots after 5 attempts helps only marginal, as they automatically switch to other bots (new IP) and continue the brute force attack.…

                        • Allow multiple networks for Masquerade Rules

                          We have dozens of RED devices. Adding individual NAT Masquerade Rules is very tedious when you can only select a SINGLE source object per rule. Would be nice to have a single Masquerade rule with multiple sources so I could just add either a new Network definition to the existing rule.

                            • default expressions

                              I would suggest that a default expressions list is implemented for the anti spam features of the UTM. I think a default list of expressions (especially pornographic or vulgar) that you can either enable as a whole or individually would be a good idea. I am currently in the process of listing multiple expressions that would have no business existing inside of a professional email and would like to see obvious offensive words able to be blocked by default.

                                If you use bridges with more than two interfaces or multiple bridged vlans, it would be great to know the statistic for services and bandwidth for the involved single hardware-interface!

                                        • Introduce fail-over thresholds

                                          When you have two interfaces configured in active/standby mode, and your active interface experiences intermittent issues, the UTM will rapidly flick between the active and standby interfaces. This can cause connections to continuously drop, depending on how frequent the issues with your active connection are.

                                          It would be helpful if there was a threshold to the failover, for example allowing me to state "If active down, failover to standby. When active up, wait for $x continuous minutes of uptime before resuming use of that interface". This allows the device to handle connectivity issues in a more graceful way.
