  1. Work on Stability, Reliability and Security

    (Please admin, don't mark as already possible before clarifying!)

    As mentioned earlier, it would be good to have code worked on to be stabilised. (No, 9.2 is not so stable, please check the forums, the latest 9.210-10 around for about a month is famous for being bad).

    What we, the users, would like, is for work to be done on stabilising the firmware, rather than added features.

    Sophos is GREAT, but it is very very unreliable. It needs to be restarted every month or 2.

    • 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 :-)

      • 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.

        • 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".

                to show how often a firewall policies got hits it would nice to see it in a dashboard or a report. So it is easier to clean up older policies

                  Coming from another vendor one of the features I like/had was that I could block categories within YouTube. We are a School District that needs to access YouTube (YouTube for Education has limited content). It would be nice to setup a policy or rule to be able to block these YouTube Categories.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                          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.

                          • Fix UTM Licensing To Expire IPv6 Temporary Addresses Faster

                            Fix UTM licensing to "age out" faster the many IPv6 "temporary addresses" that are created by most devices (running Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, Android, Linux). As an example, I have 12 devices connected to my network, but because I run in an IPv4/IPv6 environment, UTM is currently counting 113 IP addresses and sending me daily warnings that I have exceeded my license count and no new devices can be added to the network.

                            In the forum post linked below I have gone into greater detail, but the issue essentially is that in 2014 almost every IPv6-capable device is generating…

                            • 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…

                                Maybe you could add the feature that cross referenced URLs are being unblocked too when a bypass user is unblocking a website.

                                Example:

                                If category "social media networking" is blocked in your web filter policy and you have users that are allowed to unblock websites (bypass users). If one of these bypass users is unblocking facebook for example, he gets a facebook page released without CSS that doesn`t look very nice and is not functional. That`s probably because facebook has a cross reference to "https://fbstatic-a.akamaihd.net" to receive it`s CSS which is not automatically been released together with the…

                                • Improve reporting for Advanced Threat Protection

                                  Presently ATP reports the IP of the advanced threat. It does not report the DNS name.

                                  In most larger networks, all DNS requests go through an internal DNS server, Domain Controller or whatever. Therefore any alert from the ATP will identify the DNS server as the requesting host.

                                  For Windows DNS logging the brief logging does not capture the IP address returned from the resolver, only the DNS name submitted. Whilst it is possible to turn on complete logging which will return this information such logging is very, very verbose, and it is generally impractical to have permanently turned on.

                                  • (Webserver Protection) WAF + (Network Protection) Server Load Balancing.

                                    It would be great if there was a way to use the WAF but with Server Load Balancer setup in the Network Protection area or at least have the same type of control if not even more types of load balancing controls then there are now.

                                    As noted in another feature suggestion of having Layer 7 checks in the WAF Load balancer would be great. And I agree. But along those same lines I also have needs to specify load to not be round robin and to weight it. Which you can do to a degree in the Network Protection…

                                    • URL Redirection

                                      It would be great if it would be possible to redirect certain URLs

                                      For example:

                                      www.company.com => www.company.ch/site1
                                      www.company.com/site1 => www.company.com/newsite

                                      Thank you :)

                                      • Generate .onc file in user portal for ChromeOS VPN

                                        ChromeOS VPN can import .onc files to configure connections that can include all connection parameters and certificates. It should be fairly easy to create the appropriate files in the user portal along with the other platform files.

                                        The ChromOS import is at chrome://net-internals/#chromeos

                                        • SMTP-Log: Release from Quarantine not visible in log

                                          In the smtp-log view of the mailmanager, any mail released from Quarantine manually by the user is shown as "Delivered". Would be a good idea, to have an additional hint in such cases. The only hint at the moment might be the delivery-time, which in case of a manual release in most cases will be something above one hour (in comparison to a regular delivery, that typically takes only a few seconds).
