    The portal allows access to critical information and functionality, yet it is only protected by a username/password login that is vulnerable to brute force password guessing and password powned attacks. It needs to be possible to authenticate users on the Cloud Native portal with 2FA in the same way as vCloud.

    It is good to see UKCloud updating to vCloud Director 8.1/2 currently.  Why was the decision taken to not upgrade to v9, especially given Adobe's plans to deprecate Flash in the next 3 years?

    This is especially prevailant given the current issues and the recent issues involving FireFox deprecating NSAPI plug ins which has lead to a reduced list of compatible browsers.

    Could you please add Linux Debian as a standard option for a VM to be initially installed with, and also add it to your internal Linux repositories?

    Debian is one of the most popular server operating systems, consistently maintaining a place at number 2 of Distrowatch. You would be hard pushed to find another IaaS provider that doesn't offer Debian, so it would be nice if UKCloud could follow suit.

    Many thanks.

    We're required to implement virus scanning on our Linux VMs, including regular updates to the virus definition files. Since the elevated (IL3) infrastructure is not connected to the internet, it can't reach the servers hosting those files. We are therefore currently having to update the virus definitions files manually.

    Ideally we'd like UKCloud to provide a mirror service for the latest ClamAV virus definition files, similar to the mirrors provided for the apt/yum package respositories, which would be accessible from within the elevated environment.

    The setup process is documented here: https://www.clamav.net/documents/private-local-mirrors

    At the moment port 80 is not open on portal.skyscapecloud.com, which is sometimes confusing.

    http://portal.skyscapecloud.com should have a 301 redirect to https://portal.skyscapecloud.com

    I'd like to be able to add users to my ECS without creating a ticket. I can currently create buckets at will (using Cloudberry explorer rather than the UK Cloud portal) and user creation would be a good way to streamline tasks.

    When responding to an outage there needs to be better monitoring and response for us to be aware of what is happening and when.

    We have been looking at security on one of our VMs and while we can restrict the range of IP addresses that connect to the server through the firewall, it would be useful to restrict the traffic based on the actual geographical location where the IP is coming from, as a trace showed a large number of hits coming from China, which is where many attacks come from.  In addition, looking through the Windows security logs, it would show that there had been lots of unsuccessful logon attempts to the server from these hits, using random user names such as FrontDesk, Voicemail, TestUser, Test, etc.

    Would be a useful function to have in the future, although I appreciate, thanks to Proxy servers, it wont be foolproof.

    I've seen the Blueprint in the knowledge base to run a scheduler on a seperate VM to turn VMs on and off but have not been able to get this to work as the software seems to want to work with older .NET frameworks which are no longer available.  It also seems quite complicated to set up and requires another VM.

    It would be useful in the properties for each VM if we could schedule ON and OFF times, day by day if possible, so weekends can be seperated from the weekdays.
