  1. User-level access control policy on Endpoint Protection

    I would like to be able to allow flash drive access to certain users on all computers but not all users on the computers in Endpoint Protection, and there is currently no AD sync for Endpoint Protection.

    Reference Case # 4857461

    • enable sorting clients in Endpoint Protection by 'last seen' for easy deletion of old clients

      This would give us the opportunity to easily identifiy and delete old computers that are no longer active.

          • Purge old machines from list of connected machines

            The Sophos Web Protection Appliance collects old machine names that were connected once - and never lets them go. I have machine names that are listed as connected endpoints in my Web Appliance that haven't existed in 2 years. Please allow admins to delete old machines.

              • URL re-writing of links within all suspicious emails

                A frequent tactic has been to send users socially engineered emails that are designed to entice the user to click a URL within the email. The URL web destination either automatically initiates a download, or tricks the user to enter sensitive or private information.

                Also there are employees which actually do not fall in to protection of firewalls and other mechanism since they are on the road. Having this capability in UTM would increase capability a lot for some serious deployments. However, even SMB has these needs since their endpoints are often compromised for some other stuff to be done.…

                • copy / paste firewall and web filter rules and or import/export per rule would be great (like TMG)

                  In TMG it's possible to import/export per rule or object. Also you can copy/paste rules or objects from one TMG to another. It would be great to have this on the Sophos UTM.

                  • Configurable http-port for WPAD configuration file download

                    Web browsers automatic configuration feature uses wpad as hostname and http-port 80 (http://wpad/wpad.dat) to get the wpad.dat file.

                    Unfortunately the UTM publish the wpad.dat file on the proxy-port (typically 8080) only.

                    Please implement the possibility to setup the http-port for WPAD publishing.

                    Thank you!

                      • Encryption free zones / APT detection

                        It would be nice (not sure if technically possible) if there was the ability to detect and block known encryption techniques on the local LAN.

                        Discussed here http://searchsecurity.techtarget.com/tip/Using-crypto-free-zones-to-thwart-advanced-attacks

                        Advisories use encrypted tunnels to communicate with C&C servers. The blocking/Alerting of any kind of none white-listed encryption would help prevent C&C communication and signify infection.

                        Any device requiring encryption would need to be white listed, other connections (like web browsing) would need to be performed by the UTM.

                        • Probe network for rogue or conflicting DHCP servers

                          The DHCP Server built into Windows will only start if no other DHCP server is detected on the network segment. I would suggest incorporating this function into the UTM by sending out a DHCP lease request and waiting for a reply before enabling the internal server. If a reply to the request is received indicate to the user that another DHCP server is already active on the network and must be shutdown prior to enabling it on the UTM.

                          In addition to probing before enabling the internal DHCP server periodic requests should be sent out on the network to look…

                          • Policy test for non-domain environment with SAA (Sophos authentication agent)

                            Policy test does not work with SAA (Sophos Authentication Agent), therefore you cannot test access in non-domain environment, when you use authentication.

                              These related objects and configurations should be clickable to be taken directly to the specified object or configuration.

                                  • OCSP Stapling Support for WAF

                                    Please can you Support OCSP Stapling.

                                    The obvious advantage to OCSP Stapling is the improvement in
                                    speed and availability of the OCSP certificate status check.

                                    OCSP Stapling helps maintain the privacy of the end user, since a CA can see which web sites a user has visited (only those web sites that have certificates issued by the CA). If OCSP Stapling is used, the CA will see OCSP requests
                                    only from the web site, not the web site’s end users.

                                    Many wi-fi hotspots use Captive Portals to control access to the

                                    • Improvement on hotspot vouchers: device numbers and better cutting lines

                                      Hello,
                                      at the moment vuouchers does not show the number of devices that are allowed to connect using the passcode. I think It would be useful to add this information. We set 2 devices for each code, but users does not know this info and they often take 2 vouchers, 1 for laptop 1 for smartphone.

                                      Also the format of cutting lines should be improved. They should be smaller and positioned at the borders of page, not in the middle. We have some difficulties cutting them correctly and all of the same size.

                                        The Web protection report was exported to PDF.
                                        When copy and paste the contents of the PDF to text file, garbled occurs.

                                        It is hoped to be changed so as not to generate the garble.

                                        • WAN links multipath on RED

                                          Recently I come across a situation where on WAN 1, it is connected to a ADSL connection with a very slow upload speed, on WAN2, it's connected to a 4G network. It would be great if there is a feature like multipath so that all the upload traffics go through WAN 2 on a faster upload speed.
