Roaming Agent - Automatic Connectivity Remediation
When the roaming agent fails to resolve DNS queries due to enterprise network conditions such as DNS Doctoring please provide an automatic remediation method after a specified time period to temporarily disable the DNSFilter Agent. Controlling this feature through the deployment command line would be sufficient. Why: We have roaming clients that are unable to resolve DNS requests on specific enterprise networks and it's painful as the current fix is telling them to pack up their bag and leave or 4G hotspot since they don't have Administrative rights. We're working on a scheduled task script to monitor connectivity and the script will disable the Windows service, set DNS to DHCP, and flush the DNS. We have found these three steps to resolve the issue when it happens. Command-line options: AUTOREMEDIATION="enabled" allows the roaming agent to self heal connectivity issues caused by enterprise configurations such as DNS Doctoring. Automatic Remediation will temporarily disable the Windows service and static DNS configuration when a DNS request cannot be made to DNSFilter servers. When Automatic Remediation is running a connectivity check will be issued every 300 seconds on the client and if successful will re-enable the DNSFiltering Agent protection. NETWORKTIMEOUT="300" allow you to specifiy a custom network timeout before DNSFilter will attempt automatic remediation. Default is 300 seconds.
Block Page - Display category
Can the block page display the category that is being blocked. IE if bbc.co.uk/news is blocked it will display 'This page has been blocked due to appearing in the News category' or something along them lines.
Global Policies for MSPs
Allow MSPs to create Policies and Block page settings that are visible and assignable in customer accounts.
RegEx or Multiple Wildcards in Blacklist/Whitelist
Request the ability to use RegEx or at least multiple wildcards within the Blacklist/Whitelist, to allow for targeting domains such as *.some-text.* (to cover any and all domains with 'some-text' within the domain). For example: *.gettyimages.* - - which uses a variety of TLDs that are constantly changing / being added.
Deployed Sites Offline Email Notification
I would like to receive an email when I site goes red. I know there are more complicated ways to do this elsewhere, but this would be a great feature to add to future admin email notifications.
Prevent DNSFilter service stop.
Prevent the ability for users (even admin users) to stop the DNSFilter service. This is the default configuration of Cisco Umbrella Roaming Computers installations.
Automated Threat Alerts
Automatic alert when a threat/malicious activity is detected by DNSFilter at one of your sites.
Windows Roaming Client and Virtual Machines
The Windows Roaming Client is not designed to allow usage of virtual machines. We'd like to gauge the need for such an improvement.
