  1. limit Anti-Portscan notifications to one per Minute

    currently with the "limit Logging" setting you limit notifications to 1 per second. This leads to massive Notification Emails sometimes.

    I'd like to have one Notification with a summary of the attac once in a minute or even better once in 10 minutes

    • allow an unused interface to be configured as a SPAN port.

      This will allow for additional threat and network monitoring. For example, as an MSSP partner, we have had great success selling UTM along with another partner's IDS. Though the IPS functionality of the UTM is great, as it is sitting inline processing, it cannot do quite as deep a dive into the packets. Having IDS *plus* IPS has been fantastic in detecting threats and using that information to inform the UTM.

        • Endpoint Protection via MSI

          Can't believe that an 'Enterprise' grade product doesn't have the ability to push install the Endpoint client via MSI.

          Definitely a big issue.

          Please can we have this?

          • SMTP RCPT TO response time should be faster

            Apparently, major email carriers and email filtering companies are starting to move to a more aggressive timeout for RCPT TO and other SMTP responses. For one, McAfee (MXLogic) uses a default of 60 seconds for RCPT TO timeouts. The RFC is for five minutes (300 seconds), but they apparently ignore this.

            To keep up with these changes, the UTM should be able to provide RCPT TO responses in under 60 seconds, at least when address verification is turned off (ideally all the time). Problems with receiving emails from people that use major carriers like McAfee makes Sophos look bad, even…

            • Make onboard OTP usable for special virtuell webserver

              At the Moment we can use the new OTP Feature just for all virtuell webserver. Therefore, it is not possible to use this great new function in most implementations.

              An example, many customers want to publish Exchange Services like OWA, ActiveSync and Outlook Anywhere. OWA with OTP and ActiveSync without OTP. But that is not possible.

              I suggest, you implement a new authentication Profile for OTP that we can use in the site path Routing.

                • encrypt a message released from quarantine

                  Make it so a message that is released from quarantine could be encrypted

                  For instance, outbound message has credit card numbers in it, so it is quarantined. The Admin see this and knows the email must go through, but it should be encrypted, so encrypt then release.

                  • ability to block/drop mail from blacklisted senders?

                    there is no such option for this, except option to drop spam/confirmed spam alltogether, which we dont want.
                    we still want to see/check what's coming in, except for those sender's already on the blacklist - they still go into quarantine however wich makes no sense except to make the quarantine log harder to work with.
                    thanks!

                      • Detailed process usage log

                        Problem: I have spikes in CPU usage at random times that cause outages in phone service. There is no way, that I know of, to determine what caused these spikes.

                        Solution: Log snapshots of all Process's running, along with other information that can be used to determine cause of high CPU spikes. This would allow users to look back and see what process were running and what they were doing to cause a CPU/memory spike.

                        • User-defined field for DynDNS

                          My idea: DynDns field for user-defined Update-URL to use all DynDNS providers and Features like MX-Record and A-record.

                          So it is not necessary, to put all DynDNS providers in the choise field.

                              • Allow IP address ranges to be used in Web Profile Allowed Networks

                                Currently, in a web profile, you can add networks and hosts to the allowed networks but not IP address ranges. Our customers typically want to have easily-recognisable ranges that go outside the 24-bit mask (eg 172.16.200.1 - 172.16.209.254) so this has to be converted to networks and hosts, which is messy.

                                • TCP Connection Timeout - Modification

                                  It's important in case of using EAS (Exchange Active Sync) that the TCP connection timeout can be increased within the gui. At the moment only one unsupported workaround exists:

                                  cc [Enter]
                                  packetfilter [Enter]
                                  timeouts [Enter]
                                  ip_conntrack_tcp_timeout_close_wait$ [Enter]

                                  It's an important feature if you use EAS.

                                  • RED: USB Tethering from iPhone / android

                                    We want the ability to use an iPhone ( or Android ) as a modem via USB tethering in the event of an internet outage at the site.

                                    Instructions from IT would then be as simple as asking the Branch manager to plug their iphone into the red and turn hot spotting on.

                                    • Configurable port for full transparent web filtering of http traffic - not only 80

                                      Would be useful for example to use this feature for web filtering in front of an existing web proxy that has already been configured for other port than 80 (e.g. 8080) without changing for all the clients/applications the proxy settings (e.g. from 8080 to 80).
