Device Control – DC

Prevent unauthorized use of removable storage devices.

USB drives, MP3 players, CDs, DVDs, and other removable media, however useful, pose a real threat to your organisation. Their small size and enormous storage capacity make it all too easy for confidential customer data and intellectual property to walk right out the front door and fall into the wrong hands—whether through loss or theft. How do you know who is storing what on which type of device? And even if the person or persons have permission to use the data, how can you be sure they are keeping it secure?


McAfee® Device Control protects critical data from leaving your company through removable media, such as USB drives, Apple iPods, Bluetooth devices, and recordable CDs and DVDs. It gives you the tools to monitor and control data transfers from all desktops and laptops—regardless of where users and confidential data go, even when they are not connected to the corporate network.

Device Control Management

Comprehensive device management helps control and block confidential data copied to removable storage devices. Device parameters, such as product ID, vendor ID, serial number, device class, and device name, can be specified and categorised. Furthermore, different policies like block or encrypt can be enforced based on the content loaded onto the devices.

Managed policies include, but are not limited to:

  1. Support for plug-and-play devices and removable storage devices. The removable storage device definitions can support Mac OS X-only, Microsoft Windows-only, or both.
  2. Removable storage devices can be blocked or made read-only.
  3. Content-aware protection for removable storage devices.
  4. Integration with McAfee Endpoint Encryption for file folders and digital rights management (DRM) solutions.
  5. File access protection for files that reside on removable storage devices.
  6. The Citrix device rule blocks access to the thin-client device mapping: local drives, removable storage, printers, CD/DVD, clipboard, and more.
  7. Non-system hard disks rule blocks and monitors read-only files and provides notifications of user actions on fixed disk drives.
