    • Flow Monitor: Ability to show outbound traffic only

      At the moment when you click on the Out or In bandwidth in Dashboard, you are taken to the tabular view of the Flow Monitor. This shows Total bandwidth only.

      Need to be able to show only outbound or inbound traffic. We are saturating our outbound limit and there is no way to find out which client is culprit.

      Apparently this functionality used to exist.

      So, if you click on the Out bandwidth in Dashboard, it should take you to the flow monitor showing outbound traffic. If you click on the In bandwidth it should show Inbound traffic in the…

              • Abbility to Change the email Security Check Priority

                I need to be able to change the mail protection check priority rules, as now Sophos check for the SPAM possibility in the email before checking if the email contains a virus or not, and this will lead for a major security risk, because any email that is carrying a virus and at the same time considered as SPAM by Sophos will be put in the Quarantine and could be released by the recipient if he was allowed to.

                So I believe having the option to change the check priority rules will allow to have the virus scan run before…

                  • Multiple virtual MAC addresses per interface

                    Add virtual mac addresses to "Additional Addresses" for interfaces.

                    Our ISP has the limitation, that we need one MAC address per IP.

                        DHCP least table should be not only sortable but clicking on a MAC address should provide a link to an OUI lookup to identify the type of hardware that is linked to that IP address. Makes life much easier when troubleshooting.

                              • WAF: option to set secure flag on cookies

                                In the case where we want to have the UTM do the SSL encryption and keep our web servers serving plain text, we can't set the secure flag on the cookies at the web server. I like to leave the HTTP port open and use the new HTTP->HTTPS redirection feature in WAF but it does create a security hole in regards to authentication cookies.

                                Can WAF include the option to set the secure flag on cookies for a selected virtual server?

                                    This guy is up to no good, I could see perhaps 1, but 4?
                                    It would be nice after X amount of triggers or X type of triggers in X time. The IP is added to a black list.

                                    We could view this list of auto banned IPs and get information like Who/what/where/when/how and decide to leave them on the list, remove them, or change the ban…

                                    • SPF filter on Sophos Email Appliance

                                      It will allow people who have auto forwards on their email accounts to receive those at the final destination. As right now even though they come from a legit source they get blocked due to their final hop being not from an SPF record.
                                      related case number is 4560239

                                      • Config rollback to prevent lost device

                                        It would be nice to have a feature whereby you could make changes but if lost connection to the device then restart to roll back config prior to changes. I guess similar to cisco's running config and startup config.

                                        In the Cisco world, many times i've used a reload in 00:05 then made complex changes knowing that if a problem occurs and I lose the device it'll automatically reload in 5 minutes and i regain access.

                                        • Provide the Two-Factor-Authetication as a radius service, too

                                          Hi, great that you know implemented a 2FA with OTPs. With that it is now possible to secure applications dealing with the Firewall or, in combination with reverse Proxys, even to secure web-based third-party applications. But what about non-browser based 3rd Party Tools? Wouldn't it be great to provide the 2FA also as a radius Service for those other programs? For us it would be. We are running e.g. a Password Server app that has a webinterface AND other user guis like Mobile apps. With a reverse Proxy, we could try to secure this Service from outsides threads via 2FA…
