External devices such as flash drives, Bluetooth and other portable USB devices, although harmless at first glance, are one of the top causes of security incidents that can cause major damage to any business.
Damages range from stolen confidential data to huge fines due to violations of compliance rules and regulations. End users must be aware of the risks, and for businesses, to have measures to prevent data breaches and leakage from external devices.
The centrally managed Device Control solution allows for granular control over USB device permissions, enabling full control of the USB ports and connected storage devices. This way, it prevents accidental or intentional data loss and data transfers, while also enabling endpoint protection against the spread of USB malware, BadUSB attacks, or viruses. With Device Control, businesses can centralize user access management and customize access permissions for removable media connections.
Device Control is the first layer of security provided by Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys. By defining granular access rights for USB and peripheral ports, endpoint security is enforced while productivity is maintained. As a cross-platform solution, it protects the entire network, including removable storage devices, regardless if the computers are running on Windows, macOS, or Linux environments.
