Why use a USB blocker?
As part of a multi-layered data loss prevention strategy you will need access control measures to protect against USB storage devices. AccessPatrol provides the critical security controls you need to prevent employees, guests, and contractors from stealing sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), trade secrets, and financial records.
USB Security: Enforce the exclusive use of authorized USB devices. Combine AccessPatrol’s software-based policies with existing administrative safeguards to prevent employees from using personal USB devices.
Prevent Data Breaches: Flash drives are portable and easy to hide. AccessPatrol’s technical safeguards stop insider threats from transferring sensitive data to all forms of removable media.
Endpoint Security: USB devices can unknowingly infect company computers with ransomware and other malicious software. AccessPatrol protects these endpoints against rogue USB devices by proactively preventing the transmission of data.
Combine this feature with AccessPatrol’s full suite of external device policy management features for full control over how removable media and other peripherals are used in your organization.
