    • Enhance Application Control App Categorization

      Lot of people would like to be able to easily block advertisers, web trackers and analyzers to enhance their surf experience in general and to enhance privacy too by blocking all those trackers and analyzers.

      There are already >150 of such advertisers, trackers and analyzers as apps in the UTM's application control. Sadly all of them are categorized as "web services", which is misleading andunhelpful, as in this category are also CNET and Mozilla downloadservers, CDN's as Akamai etc., whic disallows a simply general block af that category.

      I propose, that this "web services" category will be splitted further into …

        • Adding applications by administrators.

          Should allow customers to add their own applications in the list.

          This allows the customer to update faster its own list of applications

          • Reporting: Extend Application Control reporting

            Would like to see more detailed reporting in the application control feature. It would be great if you could navigate around and click for info, save, and schedule reports like you can with the Web Reporting which is great.

            • Generate an email alert for high CPU and RAM usage

              It would be nice to be alerted via email (or other methods) when the CPU usage or CPU usage of the Sophos appliance gets above a certain threshold. We have had issues where our customers suffer from slow internet speeds that are caused by high device utilization. It would be nice to be alerted to this.

                    Ability to allow applications without a packet filter rule. Would be nice - at the moment you have to to set up a packet filter rule even if you have a Application Control rule that accepts the usage of a specific application.The current behaviour makes no sense for me.

                    • Block some and alert on others

                      Currently you can block or you can detect but allow to run (alert) but you cannot do one for some categories and the other for other categories. Customer would like to block something like voip but alert only on instant messengers.

                        • Route All traffic from Endpoint to UTM Proxy (like TMG agent)

                          At this moment (UTM 9.2), Sophos Authentication Agent have only one function - map IP and User.

                          But TMG customers like to use a TMG agent, which can route all outbound traffic from host (not only http/s) to TMG proxy.

                          If we will have such functionality, this will allow us:
                          - have all traffic on UTM from host (even UTM not as Default GW).
                          - use this agent for Terminal servers (separate different users by ranges of ports).

                            • Puffin Browser - add to Application Control List

                              Puffin Browser allows students and staff to bypass the web filter- this poses a significant security risk. Adding Puffin Browser to the Application Control list would help with maintaining security and website restrictions.

                                • Application control applied to users through Citrix server

                                  A Citrix server that launches applications through the firewall is always identified with the same IP by the firewall. The need is to apply an application rule to users connected to this server. It would be great to add this feature (maybe thanks to an agent) for Citrix/TSE servers.

                                  • Add the ability to limit number of hours on a application or application group

                                    The ever increasing demand for our users to have access to you tube, social media or even gaming sites (during lunch hour, hopefully) creates an administrative burden and HR nightmare for many employers. I would suggest that having the ability to limit the number of hours spent by a user or dept on a weekly or monthly basis would be an invaluable tool. This way you can create what is deemed an acceptable number of hours based on a users organizational responsibilities and only have to monitor by exception. This would also be applicable in a home setting where a…

                                    • Add "Wetransfer" to Application Control > File Transfer

                                      I see many services under "application control" > "file transfer", 110 actually, but besides services like YouSendIt I miss Wetransfer.

                                      Can you please add it?

                                      • Add "Protocol 58" to Application Control >Networking

                                        I would like to Monitor ICMP v6 Protocol 58 across the networks.
                                        Using the Application Control would give a good and clear picture of what is happening and how much traffic.
                                        Thanks
                                        Mark

                                        • canonical.com updates application control for QoS

                                          limit ubuntu clients to have a upper limit of bandwidth when downloading updates from canonical.com. Right now DNS Group only resolves one ip address when using dns group canonical.com.
