  1. Please add country name to firewall log when blocking country

    Sometimes you have to identify and resolve country blockings but ar not able to get the country with searching IP databases. Would be very nice when log names the found country. Perhaps this can be combined with other request depending mail logs.

      • Unblock cross referenced URLs too when unblocking a website

        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…

        • (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…

          • let us decide, if we want to block the Dropbox app or the Dropbox homepage

            Now automatically both features are blocked, but I just don't want the App on my system. I don't mind if the users use Dropbox via web page.

            • Integrate FIDO U2F as form of two factor authentication

              We are heavily using Google Authenticator together with our UTMs but would like the ability to issue a user an open source hardware solution that can go on their key ring. Our power users tend to run out of battery life on phone while traveling and a device on a key chain would allow for ease of access and a knowledge that all users can get in and accomplish the important business items they take care of.

              Our other solutions allow us to use something like a Yubikey Neo and gain access to everything no matter batter conditions.

              Benefits:
              No…

                    It would be nice if we could buy an additional 19" rack mount kit for the RED devices. Looks cleaner and more professional.

                    • Proxy Destination list

                      Please add an option to the proxy for defining outgoing destinations,

                      Because everyone who is allowed to use the proxy can not only connect to the Internet (normally the network everyone needs a proxy for) but to other webinterface in different networks connected to the UTM.

                      So, if you only define firewall rules which restrict access to those interface, everyone can circumvent this by using the proxy ... that's very bad!

                            This feature is already possible today, though it requires use of either the per workstation authentication agent, or using the hotspot feature, authenticating it aganst your back-end servers.

                            Nonetheless, we are working on enhancements to user awareness, making this much easier to do, and this is planned for a major release sometime mid-2015. as such, I’ll mark this as Planned, though it is also already possible.

                          • Usability improvement - Vpn site to site

                            We need to be able to add group objects when we create Remote Gateways for Site-to-Site VPNs in the "Local Networks" box. When we add a subnet to the network, we need to add the subnet to 20+ IPsec connections.

                            • Adding filter for the recipient ("mail to")

                              Please add filtering for recipient addresses (mail to).

                              Currently the UTM (9.2) only can filter incomming mails for the "mail from" field.

                              "mail to" is extremely usefull for blocking incomming spam/phishing at UTM level and not letting it pass to internal mail servers for verification.

                              We have some old and some internal mail accounts and distribution lists that are only created for internal communication.

                              Badly, the email adresses belonging to this accounts are public and gets tons of spam because we cant block them at the UTM right now.

                                    • VPN: Support multiple Domains for SSL VPN on iOS

                                      At the moment it's not possible to add multiple domains (e.g. prod.lan and test.lan) as DNS suffix for SSL VPN / iOS.

                                      So with a iOS device it's currently not possible to access internal resources which are located on second internal DNS domain. e.g. Test-Websites.

                                      • licensing per core for VM/Software

                                        Hello,
                                        I didn't know in which category to put this and ended up with Operating System. It would be nice if UTM is licensed per core for VM or Software so it easier to compete with vendors like Fortinet. This is particulary interesting in VM worlds.

                                        Having upgrade path to buy additional quotes is also something what should be considered.

                                          Hi Damir,

                                          Thanks for contributing to our feature site. We are currently evaluating a software license model which will more closely match our appliance licensing, and will consider factors such as number of CPU cores, rather than protected IPs. This is not a short term plan, so don’t expect to see anything until at least mid 2105.

                                          Thanks again for contributing!

                                        • Useful cache statistics (Web cache, DNS, SXL Categorization, Cluster balancing)

                                          Since version 9.2 it easy to have the statistic in the Web filtering log to make some interesting stats on cache.

                                          Cached= to know if the web object was take form disk cache
                                          dnstime=0 the dns resolution was made from cache
                                          cattime=0 the categorization is made form SXL cache
                                          With the name of the UTM -1 or -2 in the log you can know how much the charge is balance between the cluster.

                                          I think this could be a interesting widget stat in the main dasboard.

                                          Thanks you
