    • display the IP addresses of each interface in the dashboard

      It would be nice to see all IP addresses of an interface in the dashboard. So it will be easier to view the actual public IP.

      • block application

        Block SQLDBX.exe, due to this is the tool that enduser manage to run it without administrator right and it is dangerous that they can delete and drop the table of master database in company

        • ipfix template issue

          Hi,
          There was a request/post in regards to getting IPFIX to be connected to Solarwinds, https://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/management-networking-logging-reporting/50338-ipfix-error-solarwinds.html

          Could this issue be addressed, we would like to use their product but the template is being rejected. Since the UTM does not support other netflow options, this should be addressed because the majority of firewall companies have these options.

            • add internet speed test to support tools

              Add an internet speed test (using something like speedtest-cli or a nagios check_speedtest-cli) to the management interface support tools. This check should bypass DPI, IPS/IDS, AV, etc. so users can tune the security services for optimal protection and speed. This could also be used as a reference when setting up QoS or even as variables in QoS settings as internet traffic speeds often are increased without user knowledge and the current QoS bandwidth settings are static. Periodically check internet speeds and report in the network graphics and executive reports.

                        • load balancer

                          The server load balancing currently in ASG 9.3 works great on our internal/private network. I attempted to make it publicly accessible and failed. Sophos support just informed me the load balancer can only be used on a private network. They've stated dnat can not be used with the load balancer to load balance publicly accessible servers. I suggest this feature be added to a future release.

                          • When a virus is detected in memory, there is no information in SEC about process.

                            When a virus is detected in memory, there is no information in SEC about process.

                            In local log file there is something like
                            Process "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe" belongs to virus/spyware 'Troj/VundoMem-A'.
                            where (in this case) complete command line is
                            "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe" "C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\sfc_os2.dll",NRQOR

                            When virus is cleaned in memory there are information about process ID:
                            Process "C:\Windows\SysWOW64\rundll32.exe:pid:0000085c" has been cleaned

                            With this information we located the process (had get process list before cleaning) and found complete command line.
                            That let us to locate sfc_os2.dll file, than sophos doesn't detect as virus at that moment.

                            I sugest two items:
                            - Log more information about process…

                            • Allow an option to Quarantine emails that match DLP rules

                              Currently, the only options for emails hitting a DLP rule are 1) send 2) blackhole or 3) automatically encrypt with SPX and send

                              I'd love to see a 4th option of quarrantining the message as with suspected Spam so that an administrator could review and then either release or block the message. Currently, we have the feature set to Blackhole matches.. but in the case of a false-positive, there's no way to then release the message.

                                  On the webadmin interface under Definitions&Users --> Users&Groups i can download the vpn config for the users. I ned this feature as an automated process, who drops the vpn configurations e.g. once per day on an ftp server or an smb share. This is very important for bigger Companys who must to deploy the ssl vpn client automaticli via Deployment Solution or GPOs to the Users.

                                      • SUM web excep

                                        It would be extremely helpful to create whitelists in the SUM>Configuration>Web Filtering>Exceptions that can be deployed to the UTMs and then assigned to groups. The UTM has the functionality, however since the exception list is pushed from the SUM it isn't editable. If the SUM would import the groups and allow the list to be deployed with the options currently in the UTM this would make life a lot easier in keeping up with whitelists/exceptions across multiple UTMs.
