  • Hello!

    I'm glad to see new enhancements to SD-WAN rule management, about this will there be groups support in the future? (Maybe v20?)

    It could work in the same way as Firewall policies groups currently works.

  • Thanks for the update :-)

    Asked before, I think this is minor, but:

    - removal of the old messages on the dashoard, expired licenses, device managed from central, and so on, any news on the development af the "delete button"?

    - *ALERT* Sophos XG Firewall is shown in the notifications - when will "XG" be removed?

    - Login notifications - any plans? - really needed like in UTM where you get from SSH/WebAdmin

    I know this is not related to 19.5 MR-1, but all answers are appreciated :-)


    Best regards

  • Moved from 19.5 to MR1 and I can say that internet surfing is now slow (compared to previous version). Pages take a while to load where TLS decrypt and scan is ON.

  • Those improvements are on the backlog for future implementations. 


  • The latest firmware releases removed some alerts, which were in the product. The next alert to be removed is the "Central Managed" alert, which is currently static. All other alerts are removable by "resolving the situation". Deletion/acknolowdiging is something, which requires are complete overhowl of the control center alert system, which is not planned soon. 

    The removal of "XG" is something valid for future releases. Not planned yet. 

    Login notification is currently possible for CFR, if you want to get a report per day of who logged in and when. But not for the "instant notification". This is on the backlog. 


  • I could not see any kind of issues with DPI on all my firewalls. Could you check the browser debug mode, which component takes long? Is it the content deliver, DNS or what is loading long? 


  • Thanks for clarifying :-)

    I had to open a case support.
