  1. Need to auto-reenable security after 15 minutes.

    When chosing "disable" on security I would like to see a pop-up or option prompt to "auto-reenable after 15 minutes, or 1 hour, etc"

    We have techs that troubleshoot and forget to turn back on all the security settings- which makes for a very difficult situation when an auditor arrives.

    • Add file type filtering to WAF

      Allow admins to list a set of file extensions and MIME types they wish to filter from either upload, downloads or both.

      Include the true filetype detection already present in Web Protection (http://feature.astaro.com/forums/17359-utm-formerly-asg-feature-requests/suggestions/1468141-web-security-file-extension-blocking-inside-archi) to make evasion harder.

      Optionally: Make the list of file-types a reverse authentication attribute, so that different groups of users are allowed to use different types of files.

      This functionality will allow for greater flexibility and protection when using the WAF. It can work as a DLP filter in downloads, or as a way of blocking executable code in uploads.

      • HotSpot: Export "First Connection Date" CSV

        Hi,

        today a customer asked me if the first Connection Date could be also made exportable in the HotSpot Section. I think it should be easily done isn't it?

        • recipient verification

          If you choose "in Active Directory", a email will be refused, if the DC is not available. Why do you not cache all emal addresses (main and alias) from the DC and refresh them periodically.So the Emailserver is able to refuse invalid email addresses immediately. In that case, a email address in the AD is no longer valid, the Email server will react as you had choose the option "with server inquiry" as recipient verification.

          • Add User Agent in reverse proxy logs.

            We had this information in our previous firewall and was helpful to know what agents are running probes.

                I see the number of connections in a graph, but currently have to hover over each day to see the # of connections, which I then enter into a spreadsheet. I need to report this each month to our board. Everything you report is bandwidth and average related

                • HTML5 RDP automatic login with domain active directory credentials

                  When you setup HTML5 RDP automatic login, it should pass the active directory credentials including domain to the RDP server for login.

                  This is a current feature of the sonicwall SSL-VPN and needs to be addressed for the sophos UTM.

                  • Make RBL list update possible via Pattern update or check their availability

                    Recently the Web Server Security reverse proxy experienced timeout problems because "block clients with bad reputation" was active and one of the three internally user DNS RBL lists is down (dnsbl.proxybl.org).

                    As the DNS RBL list stuff is not very reliable and often these lists are down due to DOS attacks or lack of administrators, it would make sense to react to such changes very quickly.

                    So I suggest making updates of RBL lists using the pattern update mechanism (applies to both SMTP and reverse proxy and maybe Web Security as well).

                    Another approach would be to chek the availability…

                    • Implementing of rbl whitelists like dnswl.org

                      it would be great to implement the feature of rbl whitelists from
                      dnswl.org to decrease the ammount of false positives
                      of the well known rbl list vendors like spamcop and others.
                      In my case, a big german provider is blacklistet by these lists with
                      about 3 servers from 20. Mails by these servers are not been
                      delivered by out UTM because it checks the most
                      popular RBL's in web. Define Exclusions for all these false positives
                      in an own list are too cumbersome!!

                      • Provide dhcp lease time option for SSL vpn pool

                        Currently there is no option to configure dhcp lease time for SSL vpn pool. This causes DNS resolution issues as there will be multiple stale records resolving to the same IP. I have reduced the scavenging time but this will not resolve this issue.

                          It should be nice to add the rtsp helper. I used it before, i found it at : http://mike.it-loops.com/rtsp. It's working fine.

                          It's usefull for watching tv using isp services without having to open all ports.

                            • Have the option in SMC 5 to allow application installs on Windows Phones using .xap files without the need for a MS Live account

                              In SMC 4 there is currently no functionality to allow admins to push applications to Windows 8.1 managed mobile devices via .xap files. You can push them out using the relevant URL from the Windows Store but this means you need to use a Microsoft Live account on the phone. We are in the process of rolling out 200+ Windows Phones and we would like to avoid the headache of having to separately manage all of those additional MS Live accounts for each device.

                              • WAF Reverse Authentification: several Windows domains

                                When we create an Authentification Service of type Active Directory, we can use only one Windows Domain. We can configure several Domain Controllers, but since the authentification progres fails at the first deny it does not male sense to configure DCs from several domains (am I right)?
                                So when we could configure several domains (and in the WAF the possibility to choose which ones to use) we could build multi-domain scenarios: one that's very common is a corporate domain for stuff like exchange, intranet and so on - and a DMZ domain for extranet portals, usually with a one-way domain…

                                • multiple AV vendors

                                  I'd like the ability to add other AV vendors onto the UTM, as a 'Sophos house' we have the Sophos Endpoint on client devices but if we could add another AV vendor for scanning downloads then that would be ideal, so we can potentially have 2 different AV vendors on the UTM and then Sophos Endpoint on the desktop.

                                  • upload bandwidth report

                                    Customer would like a report of upload bandwidth used so that they would be able to identify any possible data leakage if they can identify users that have high upload bandwidth usage.

                                        • SSO over WAF

                                          Planning to replace TMG with other UTM product. Sophos is looking good - but some features is missing which are a must have for me:
                                          Any change we will se
                                          * SSO for reverse proxy
                                          * Link translation like we know it in TMG
                                          * AD user change password option through rev. auth

                                          These are the only major issues preventing us from switching to Sophos
