  1. Safeguarding reports to indicate if breach was blocked or not

    Incidentally a "this happened and we blocked it" vs a "this happened and we didn't block it" would be very handy

    • Traffic Graph

      Could we see the timeline along the bottom of the traffic graph? I would like the graph to be a lot larger, also. I would like to be able to choose the time frame for the graph, such as last 5 minutes, last 30 minutes, last hour, etc etc.

      • Anti-Malware Reporting and Logging

        Reports > Realtime/Logs > System > Anti-Malware Engine shows the Anti-Malware Engine is running and updating, but there is no evidence that it's actually scanning downloads. What I expect to see is some log of the files that were scanned. That way I could correlate that it's actually doing it's job. As a serendipitous benefit, this would also allow me to see what files my users are downloading (something we've always been interested to find out.)

        • Quick block or allow

          As a means of confirmation to the user it would be nice if once the entry has been allowed or blocked via the Quick Block or Allow page it would be nice to have the following notifications: - [URL] has been allowed - [URL] has been blocked -[URL] already exists in allowed/blocked list. Thank you

          • A print as PDF option

            On the safegurading reports it would be handy to have a export to PDF button.

            • Show video names for YouTube videos

              Currently when you look at realtime search results you will not see video names for YouTube videos you just see the YouTube video ID which isn't much help. I would like to be able to see what video is being played and or searched for. We currently run YouTubeEdu which keeps out a lot of the videos we do not want, but some still get through. Being able to see which videos kids are searching for would help a lot.

              • Be able to run Safeguarding reports for a specific date

                The Notification messages are generated each morning, which is great, but at weekends no one is available to Action the report of Friday's activity, the only options available are Last week or the Past 7 Days.

                A Date Specific option would be useful.

                • Custom allowed content - allow us to record who has requested exception

                  Staff request exceptions in custom allowed content. It would be nice to record this against the exceptions we add

                  • I would like to see a real-time 30 minute graph showing traffic volumes through my internet connection

                    Lightspeed has, on their dashboard, a graph that shows the total inbound and outbound traffic in a graphical meter that is a great visual on their home page of the dashboard. I have a picture of it if you would like to see it.

                    • lets encrypt

                      Allow use of https://letsencrypt.org with the reverse proxy, it is possible to do manually but since the certs expire every 90 days its a bit cumbersome.. they already have a client that does this on most unix os, it just needs integrated into the webui

                      • Option in the report to include user Display name

                        Username does not always make sense to the intended recipient of the user - display name would be good to include in the report

                        • Intrusion Prevention: Correcting False Positives

                          When there is a false positive block on the IPS, it would be very helpful if there was an easy way to hit "allow" or "unblock". Currently, I have to get the SID, and manually drag through all the policies to find the one policy to 'uncheck'. I use browser hacks, such as "CTRL F" but that is slow and cumbersome.

                          • Directoires - the abilty to select an AD controller to bind to.

                            In domains that contain many AD controllers at various site locations, it would be nice to be able to select the controller the directory binds to. We've had incidents where the directory has bound to a controller on a busy link that has caused slowness because of authentication time-outs and it would be so useful to be able to use a controller that is located at the data center that doesn't suffer with this bottleneck.

                                  The export button currently claims to produce a csv, but it actually makes a tab separated file - please make it do what is claims to.

                                  Also, the date field is full of strings like "1474288835" - this needs to be changed to make it human-readable.

                                    • changing default range treshold

                                      We see sometimes unusual bandwidth usage. A bit investigation has learned us that e.g. Youtube traffic is the source of trouble. Guardian handles the partial request (http 206) and then downloads 50 MB. The next partial request also triggers Guardian to download the next 50 MB of data. So Guardian takes the complete external bandwidth. Our fix is to edit the /modules/guardian3/usr/lib/smoothwall/templates/ModifyRange/modifyrange.tt file.
                                      We set the rangethreshold = [% max_file_size * 1024 * 1024 %] to rangethreshold = [% max_file_size * 1024 * 1024 / 10 %] and the problem is away.
                                      But this is not a very neat solution.…

                                        • Reporting again - reports don't tie up

                                          Its not an idea, just yet another request to get the reporting sorted out. There appears to be no correlation between the daily category e-mail that I get for Pornography, and any report that I can run to actually see who attempted an illegal access. The two just don't tie up, assuming that my measly attempts at trying to get a sensible report out of the console are correct?
