  1. Country Blocking - color scheme

    In this context, it would further be desirable when, for reasons of clarity, the countries switch the Country blocking mask would be a contrasting color (eg green = off, red = All, orange = From, yellow = To).

    In diesem Zusammenhang wäre es weiter wünschenswert, wenn aus Gründen der Übersichtlichkeit die Länderschalter der Country Blocking-Maske farblich differenziert werden würden (z.B. grün = Off, rot = All, orange = From, gelb = To)

    • Sophos UTM software installer with serial console enabled by default

      Please see this www.astaro.org thread:
      https://www.astaro.org/gateway-products/hardware-installation-up2date-licensing/51383-sophos-pcengines-apu-6.html#post286165

      With 8000 views, there is a huge VGA blind but SERIAL aware user community. We would love a serial console (ttyS0) enabled installer image.

      • Ability to choose syslog severity

        I cannot believe this is not possible it is a standard feature of most networking/security products.

        The ability to define what level of severity you want output to your syslog server. Currently its either ALL or NOTHING. When running log correlation you do not want the syslog server filled up with noise.

        RFC 5424 defines the ability to set severity levels, can this be implemented ASAP along with any other logging improvements.

        Thank you

        • Server Load Balancing: Choose HTTP Response codes for failed servers other than 5xx (for ex. 404!)

          By now only 5xx HTTP Response codes tell the SLB to disable a real servers (a failed one) and 200 for OK. We want to be able to determine our own HTTP Response Code to disable real servers like 404. This makes it way easier for an admin since he only has to check for a simple empty file - if its there -> 200 (up), if not -> 404 (down). We use this also with HAProxy and it works great.

            • add static route with jog/dial

              it would be great to have the possibility to add a static route with the jog/dial button. Often our equitment is directly sent to the datacenter and then conneted to the network. The datacenter technician can change the management ip with the jog/dial, but can not add a static route, so it is not possible make a connection over the network.

                • ENDPOINT Protection Email Alerting should be more adjustable

                  Mac Adress should be in the Mailalerting of the SEC Endpoint Client
                  The Mail send to the Admins should be adjustable -> Admin should insert Text he wants for Mail Alerting

                  • dkim interface better

                    Make a "generate private key" in the interface. Then show the public DNS entry. Make a check per outgoing mail domain, if public key is correct published in DNS. More people will use this "hidden" anti-spam setting, and less spam will be transmitted.

                    • Return original website category for Anonymizer

                      Many customers have a legitimate use for Google Translate which is classified as an anonymizer when a website is passed through here. Could we return the original category of the website (also included in the URL) rather than the category for Google Translate? This would allow better control of the traffic and remove the only current option of completely allowing all websites through Google Translate or blocking all websites through Google Translate.

                      Example URL: http://translate.google.co.uk/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=http://www.hug-ge.ch

                      • Modify the portal

                        The ability to add custom pages to the user portal for other business needs.
                        Such as iframe or the ability to use HTML code.

                        We could then provide a single interface for users to access every service we offer them on the network.
                        For example and HTML form with the ability to send an email to administrators with websites they want unblocking.
                        Or a simple link to another website.

                        • Endpoint groups

                          Be able to specify which group you want to deploy a client to.

                          Currently there is no option to install with GPO or script and specify a group in the command. This result in all deployments going to the default group.

                          Very time consuming if you had many groups with different policies.

                          • MDM based access through Reverse Proxy

                            With MDM (as a service) being connected to a UTM it would be good to be able to set up a Reverse Proxy (WAF) profile as counterpart. I.e.: only devices allowed by MDM may pass to ActiveSync.

                            This way it would not be necessary to set up a dedicated machine for this task and DNAT rule (and you can still use 443 for other webservers as well on the same IP).

                            This way UTM and MDM would benefit (UTM being more value to MDM SaaS customers). This will greatly emphasize Sophos product interconnection.

                                  • Provide a service like Palo ALto's WildFire.

                                    Auto upload any newly seen (For any and all Sophos firewalls across the globe.) executable, flash content, JavaScript, office document, etc. to Sophos for detention in some pre-configured VM's. Then, based on the determination of clean report it as clean and if malware report it as such and push new AV definitions out to Sophos boxes everywhere.

                                    A detailed report of the new upload results should be sent to the sending firewall admin - clean or malware. Palo Alto does this and it is called WildFire. I have this at work and it allows the firewall to quickly block new…

                                    • DNS Request Routing By Interface

                                      Hey Everyone,

                                      My corp has the same dns externally as externally (abc.com internal and abc.com external). We are using the protected wifi with an employee zone that does not have or need access to the internal network. But when those devices are using the utm as their DNS they inherently have access to the internal DNS. With this many services like outlook any where attempts routing to the internal network because it detects the internal DNS. So i would like to ask for DNS Request routing and have an option to select the interface that applies to. So i would…

                                      • Check if Domain of sender is valid

                                        Many DNS-Records do not have SPF enabled, so another checking option, like a whois if the given domain exists would be a nice feature to block spam without having to deal with as many false positives.

                                        • Email exceptions to anti spam sender blacklist

                                          Currently in the list of email exception rules there is no way to bypass the Sender Blacklist list of email addresses or domains.

                                          If like us you want to block all Facebook mail, and do this via blocking *@facebookmail.com,but still want to say your marketing/pr department to have access there is no way to create an exception. All the other AntiSpam categories are covered in the exceptions tab but not this one.
