AccessPatrol Device Control Software FAQ
Can I Set Unique Device Restrictions for Different Computers or Users?
Yes. With AccessPatrol’s device control features you can block or allow USB devices and other peripherals for each computer, user, department, or other organizational unit (OU) in your company.
To do this, AccessPatrol’s management console allows you to create group folders with separate policies. This feature is perfect for blocking USB devices for employees while still providing access for trusted administrators that need unrestricted access.
Are There Any Limits to the Free Trial?
The free trial of our device control software is fully functional. You can deploy it on up to 10 computers for 14 days. If you need more time or more computers to properly evaluate AccessPatrol in your organization, reach out to our support team.

Read our data loss prevention and device control software customer case studies to learn more.
Can I Block Specific File Types from Being Transferred?
Yes. One of the endpoint security solutions provided by AccessPatrol is the ability to prevent your end-users from copying specific files to their storage devices. These file transfer restrictions can be configured based on the file name or file extension.
The file transfer blocking feature can also be used on devices that are on the allowed list. This lets you provide access to company-authorized USB devices while still protecting the sensitive data in your network against exfiltration to portable storage hardware.
Does Currentware Have Access to Employee Data?
No. CurrentWare’s data security solutions do not send your user’s computer usage data to CurrentWare. They are installed and managed by your organization.
All of the data collected by CurrentWare’s software is stored on a database that is installed in a data center in your organization’s network or on a virtual machine provided by a cloud service provider of your choice.
For more information please refer to our Terms of Service
Is This a Cloud Solution?
No, our USB endpoint protection solutions are not cloud-native. At this time AccessPatrol will continue to be offered for on-premises deployments, however, you can install CurrentWare’s software on a cloud platform of your choice with our Bring Your Own Cloud option.
CurrentWare will not have access to your employee’s data. All of the data collected by CurrentWare’s employee monitoring and endpoint security solutions are stored on a database that is fully controlled and managed by your organization. For more information please refer to our Terms of Service
Can I Restrict Devices and Monitor USB Activities in Citrix, Remote Desktop, and/or Terminal Server Environments?
Yes. The CurrentWare Suite is supported on desktop computers, virtual machines (VMs), and servers running modern versions of the Windows operating system.
You can install the CurrentWare Clients on your Citrix Workspace running Windows. In addition, all CurrentWare components are compatible with Remote Desktop Services (RDS) or Terminal Servers (TS).
When controlling peripheral devices in Citrix with CurrentWare you can block devices on PC Mode to restrict the individual virtual machine or on User Mode to restrict devices for specific users across multiple devices and/or virtual machines.
Monitoring and managing your end-users with CurrentWare in a Terminal Services environment works similarly. The exception is that in a Terminal Server/Terminal Services environment the server will be registered as an individual endpoint; to apply granular policies for each user, department, or Organizational Unit you will need to use User Mode.

Will My Employees Know They Are Being Monitored?
As with any CurrentWare Suite product, your organization is in control of how visible the endpoint security solutions are.
AccessPatrol does not disclose when its USB activity monitoring feature is active. When your employees attempt to use an unauthorized USB device they can be presented an optional warning message.
The CurrentWare software client that is used by our endpoint security solutions operates in stealth mode by default.
In stealth mode, the CurrentWare software client is not visible in the system tray or control panel of the employee’s computer. Your employee will not be able to uninstall the program or stop it without administrator privileges.
If you would like your employees to be aware that they are being monitored, you can choose to show the CurrentWare software client in their system tray by enabling it in the client software settings.
If you would like to disable monitoring altogether, visit this article: How Do I Disable AccessPatrol’s Device Tracking?
