  1. Let's Encrypt Integration

    It would be very nice if Let's Encrypt CA start with public certificates (letsencrypt.org), that we can get certs throug the UTM Gui. So that the "Let's Encrypt Client" is integrated in the UTM. Would it be possible?
    Best Regards

    • IMAP Proxy for UTM/SG 9

      Implement an IMAP proxy for UTM/SG 9. Provides filtering and scanning functionality for those that use this type of mail retrieval.
      IMAP becomes more and more important for mail clients. The use of POP3 declines. On the other hand, threads caused by malicious mail attachments like crypto trojans or macro viruses are more dangerous than ever. By not implementing sufficient security for IMAP protocol Sophos leaves an increasing part of UTM/SG customers alone.

      • Wireless: Support of non-Sophos Access Points

        Many customers have non-Sophos APs but would like to use some Wireless Protection feature. Therefore it would be nice if a small choice of Wireless Protection features were available for non-Sophos APs.

        • Don't have the RED device reboot constantly when tunnel between it and the UTM is down.

          It would be nice to have the RED device NOT rebooting constantly when the Tunnel between it and the UTM is down. That way users can at least access the internet. Right now they are completely down.

            • Change the Active Directory login behavior with multiple DCs

              With the current code handling the Active Directory authentication of users, if you add multiple domain controllers as authentication sources, any error with the user's authentication will cause the authentication to be attempted on the next DC.

              Unfortunately, this is also the case with failed passwords. The LDAP protocol has a built-in error message to tell the client that the failure was due to a bad password and not a server or communication issue (LDAPMessage bindResponse(3) invalidCredentials (80090308: LdapErr: DSID-0C090334, comment: AcceptSecurityContext error, data 52e, vece)).

              This causes issues when users make mistakes on their passwords, it causes the AD…

                  • Clean otp token automatically

                    We have opt tokens in use. All users are a member of a AD group.
                    We would like it when a user is removed from the group of AD the token should also automatically be removed from the utm.
                    Now the removed AD users remain in the opt token list and it's becoming a mess.

                          • Managing black list of local Sophos Email Security via Microsoft Outlook Add-In

                            Sophos Email Protection: Sophos already offers an MS Outlook add-in which allows the users to mark emails as junk mails. When users marks an emails as junk, an email is sent to Sophos Labs, gets analyzed and sometimes the sender is added to a global black list.

                            We would like to have another option when using this add-in. Whenever one of our users marks an email as junk, we want the sender added to the black list of our locally installed Sophos Email Security, not sent to Sophos Labs.
                            Other solutions like SonicWall Email Security offer this functionality already.

                            Right…

                                • Add support for acting as a secondary/***** DNS nameserver

                                  Currently, the UTM can either act as an authoritative DNS server or as a (selective) forwarder.

                                  What's missing is the support for acting as a secondary/***** DNS nameserver that can do zonetransfers from existing DNS nameservers, e.g. internal Active Directory DNS nameservers.

                                  Imagine you have a small internal network with 1 Windows Server 2012 R2 Hyper-V Host and 2 Active Directory domain controllers running on top.
                                  When you reboot the HVH for maintenance reason (e.g. updates), both internal DCs are unreachable and a UTM cannot do internal name resolution anymore, as its forwarding target nameservers for the internal domain(s) are…

                                      • remotely reboot a red device

                                        It would be handy if you could use the UTM console to reboot a remote ethernet device (RED). Right now always someone on the other side is needed in case a RED needs a power cycle.

                                        • Cache Intermediate HTTPS issuer certificates

                                          When browsing to poorly configured web sites that don't provide a complete certificate chain, the UTM certficate validation will block the site as untrusted.

                                          Browsers can work around these poorly-configured servers by caching intermediate issuer certificates from well-behaved servers.

                                          Let site A and site B have certificates issued by intermediate issuer Z. Site A provides the full chain, site B is badly configured and does not.

                                          If a user browses to site B first, the browser will issue a security warning because it can't find the issuer certificate to validate the certificate chain.

                                          If a user browses to site A,…
