      • Native Microsoft Azure Site-to-Site VPN

        Sophos UTM already natively supports automatic site-to-site VPN tunnels with BGP routing to AWS. I look forward to Sophos UTM supporting the same sort of site-to-site VPN tunnels with BGP to Microsoft Azure in public and private cloud deployments.

        I think the easiest way for this to work would be for Sophos UTM to look at the requirements of getting the VPN itself setup (which has been documented in the forums and works), then to make BGP work on top of that, then ensure that BGP and the VPN can work between multiple private cloud and public cloud sites, then…

        • Youtube and blocking specific categories

          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.

          Currently available categories are:
          • Film
          • Autos

          • Allow for at least logo customization of the User Portal and WebAdmin page.

            Would like to see the capability to extend at LEAST logo customization of the User Portal page. Ideally it would be beneficial to modify the logo for the WebAdmin portal as well, however the User Portal customization is critical if we are to position this solution against competing products from Juniper (MAG), Palo Alto, and Fortinet.

            • Import IP addresses from txt or CSV file to network definitions in Web Manager

              I have over 3500 IP addresses I need to add into my network definitions. I need to add them all to firewall definitions. It would save me so much work if I could just import these IP addresses as a CSV into a bunch of network definitions.

              It would be even more advantageous if I could import the IP addresses to network definitions and have them all automatically go into a network group.

              • Use Perfect Forward Secrecy for SMTP Proxy

                Use PFS for SMTP Proxy, now it still supports RC4 which is a very weak Cipher.

                • SPX Encryption > Receiver Password Portal Setup & Reset

                  A way to remove the need for Password Notifications send to User, Administator or Other. An external facing portal page that allows a notice to be sent to the receiver for them to register w/ e-mail verification to setup to access their password for the SPX attachment. Basically allowing a local service similar to Cisco RES for messages sent from your Sophos UTM. Obviously, this could be limited in that if a per-email password is used by the sender it would not be able to work. Also a password reset would only work for future e-mails as the PDF is…

                  • Server Load Balancing: Alternate internal port than external

                    Just like NAT allows, let us choose an alternate port to redirect traffic to on the internal servers. Right now, whatever is external is internal, and it forces us to use NAT which kills any option to have high-availability and load balancing.

                    • Implement a console type interface into the UTM for controlling the endpoints.

                      The UTM endpoint protection should have a way to view the quarantine items on the endpoints and authorise or clean what it has discovered. If the application is to be authorised there should be a way to auto add this directly to the exceptions policy. The ability to run a scan of the endpoint from the UTM should also be included. Currently the UTM implementation of the endpoint protection is more like a notice than a central management point, meaning the admin has to go to the machines in question (either physically or with a remote connection) to investigate the…

                      • SPX

                        Now that UTM 9.2 supports outgoing SPX email encryption i'd like it to also offer the same recipient self registration portal for password management based on user similar if not exactly the same as the existing Sophos Email Appliance.

                        I think this would get many of my clients with existing firewall/vpn infrastructure who are also looking for email encryption off the fence and buy into the UTM. Unfortunately the encryption piece as it stands now is a bit tedius and isn't as user friendly as it could be

                        • Add optional PIN entry field for two-factor authentication

                          There are really two big issues I have with the two factor authentication implementation. The first is that no where in the setup for the user is there any information or instruction as how to use two factor authentication. Every other two factor authentication that I have used has had a separate box for putting in the random code. I only learned about how to properly use two factor authentication after calling support and being informed that I needed to append the randomly generated code to the end of my password to which I say "Really! and you arn't going…

                          • Update dyndns hostname with the public IP address used by RED to connect to UTM

                            UTM already shows in the main RED tab the IP addresses used by the RED devices do connect to the UTM. It would be great if this IP address could be used to update a dyndns host name and thus allow monitoring if the internet link of the remote side of the tunnel, when dynamically assigned IP are used on the remote side. Today, on a dropped RED connection, there is no way to know if the problem is with the remote internet link or the tunnel between sites.

                              • Use SUM as Log Server/Archive

                                It would be very helpful if I could use a SUM Server as Remote Log File Archive. With this feature I could centralize all Logs of all my UMT's. A addon feature to search in e.g. Webfilter Logs of multiple UTM's at the same time would also be very nice!
                                And if I do complex searches or log files are very big, the load will move away from productive UTM's.

                                Thanks in advance,
                                Pascal

                                  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 …

                                  • Web Appliance: Granular Help desk role options

                                    It would be fantastic to have the ability to lock down each section inside of Web Appliance so that certain activities could be delegated to Junior Admin staff (such as only the ability to add entries to Local site list in Group policy section or only access to specific option into the Policy configuration, etc.), without exposing the entire configuration of the WSA to them.

                                    • DHCP on RED

                                      I think it would be great if we have an option to move the DHCP server for RED networks from the UTM to the RED device. This would allow normal LAN access (e.g. file and print sharing) at the remote site even with a disconnected or outage on your uplink.

                                      • Forward public IP to real web server

                                        CheckBox that allow to send the Public IP of client, instead that private IP of internal interface of WAF, to real web server.

                                        This to allow IIS and script to retrieve information for statistic and security/configuration check.

                                        Regards

                                        • SMTP - More than one Data Leak Policy (DLP)

                                          To allow more than trigger/action to the SMTP Data Protection so:

                                          SPX Encrypt an email because the header had something like "Securely marked" in it

                                          AND

                                          Have the ability to reject any emails containing confidential information that you didn't want leaked such as national insurance number.
