Today PCs are delivered with a multitude of I/O options, many unnecessary to a given job function. At the same time, 100GB of portable storage weighs just a few ounces, sells for just a few hundred dollars, transfers data at high speeds and connects seamlessly to any PC. No power source or password required. The combination has made it more difficult for IT security staffs to limit PC users to only the information and computer resources needed to do their jobs.
DeviceLock® empowers IT management to enforce the limits set by internal security policy and external compliance boards. It stops data leaks from happening locally by denying access to peripheral ports and drives when any employee or visitor attempts a network upload or download to a device without appropriate permission.
DeviceLock® for Windows NT/2000/XP and Windows 2003 ServerDeviceLock® gives network administrators control over which users can access what devices (floppies, serial and parallel ports, Magneto-Optical disks, CD-ROMs, ZIPs, USB, FireWire, Infrared, WiFi, Bluetooth, etc.) on a local computer. Once DeviceLock® is installed, administrators can control access to floppies, CD-ROMs or any other device, depending on the time of day and day of the week. DeviceLock® enhances access control for Windows System Administrators and helps control removable disk usage. It can protect network and local computers against viruses, trojans and other malicious programs often injected from removable disks.
