  1. Sophos UTM software installer with serial console enabled by default

    Please see this www.astaro.org thread:
    https://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/hardware-installation-up2date-licensing/51383-sophos-pcengines-apu-6.html#post286165

    With 8000 views, there is a huge VGA blind but SERIAL aware user community. We would love a serial console (ttyS0) enabled installer image.

    • RED PCI Compliance Changes

      PCI Compliance will always fail on current UTMs using RED. This is due to being unable to disable SSL v3 on this as well as being unable to change the certificates used (currently weak, not using at least 2048 bit keys). Please fix!

      • Chaining Web Parent proxies to a non web proxy server

        We should be able to setup a parent proxy details where a parent proxy hostname is actually not a web proxy but a gateway. Ie. I want to send all of web traffic through to a parent proxy located in my head office (out of their WAN link) and only send traffic to predefined set of domains via local gateway.

        • Webserver Protection: Reverse Authentification with NTLM and Kerberos

          The Reverse Authentification feature (UTM 9.2) for WAF is a nice progres, but I'm hoping that it will soon be extended. There are many scenarios that require at least NTLM; Kerberos would be nice as well. Yes, we are coming from TMG :-)

              • Update the Web Filter to stop using SHA-1 as it breaks functionality for Chrome (which has depreciated it earlier this month)

                Google has depreciated the use and consideration of SHA-1 encryption.
                On Chrome, any site using SHA-1 encryption for HTTPS is considered unsecure.
                This not only breaks functionality on most websites when the decrypt and scan option is enabled, it gives the appears of unsecure web browsing.

                The Web Filter needs to be updated to use something better than just SHA-1 (like SHA-256) instead.

                And this needs to be done IMMEDIATELy.

                  • Sophos VPN app for mobile platforms

                    Sophos should develop an own VPN app for mobile operating systems (iOS / Android / Windows Phone) which can connect via the UTM using the configuration pushed from the UTM to the SMC server.
                    It should also support the Per-App-VPN feature which was introduced in iOS 7.

                    • Second DHCP Server in DHCP relay

                      It would be great if you could enter two DHCP server in the DHCP relay. We have two Windows 2012 R2 server with an active/standby Cluster. If the active node Fails, the secondary will take function. But we have to take care, to change the server in the relay on the UTM to let it still work.

                            • Better reporting on webfilter (Reasonon for block)

                              First I see a similar suggestion is already posted and marked completed pointing to policy violators. But it does not really help much.

                              Problem: Go to "Web protection reports" Choos the "Categories" reports.
                              There it shows multiple categories that are not supposed to be blocked.
                              Drilling down to a category that is not to be blocked, example for us "Travel" . Here pick the Reporting Direction "Urls", "Select this view" find one that says "Blocked" on this category. For us we se many legit sites here from time to time. Where action is blocked and Reason is "--". So no…

                              • Ability to block any subdomain in the Blacklisted address patterns

                                I would like to block *@*.example.com but it is impossible. Spammers use subdomain in order to bypass the filter.

                                • Allow more IP's on Home/Free UTM

                                  with all the connected devices its becoming very easy to hit the 50 IP limit on a home edition license. Throw in a few lab servers and you are almost guaranteed to.

                                  Any chance this can be increased? I see a few years ago this was done.

                                  • MDM based access through Reverse Proxy

                                    With MDM (as a service) being connected to a UTM it would be good to be able to set up a Reverse Proxy (WAF) profile as counterpart. I.e.: only devices allowed by MDM may pass to ActiveSync.

                                    This way it would not be necessary to set up a dedicated machine for this task and DNAT rule (and you can still use 443 for other webservers as well on the same IP).

                                    This way UTM and MDM would benefit (UTM being more value to MDM SaaS customers). This will greatly emphasize Sophos product interconnection.

                                    • let admin disable „Sophos Outlook Add-in“ in User-portal like all the other Apps.

                                      The UTM-Admin can disable unused items with "Disable Portal Items".
                                      All items but "Sophos Outlook Add-in".

                                      • iphone and andriod UTM management app

                                        It would be nice to be able to monitor and receive certain alerts from UTM from a phone, without having to navigate to the web interface.

                                        The app could have

                                        * NIC status 24 hours
                                        * IPS alerts
                                        * CPU load - space - ram - etc
                                        * current in out speeds
                                        * remote users
                                        * and many more

                                        The app could be just view only for security reasons and also utilized one time auth for installation.

                                        • DHCP/WiFi: enable transfer of connected wireless clients or DHCP leases to MAC address white/black-lists

                                          When setting up a new WiFi it can be quite a hurdle to enter every clients MAC address manually. This process is also very error prone.

                                          It would be way easier to connect all clients without MAC filter, create a MAC address list from all connected clients and then restrict WiFi access to that list.
                                          The same would also be nice for the DHCP leases list.
