USB Blocking Tool—Stop Data Theft

AccessPatrol is a powerful USB blocking tool for protecting sensitive data against theft via external hard drives, flash drives, and other removable media.

AccessPatrol’s device control and data loss prevention policies will stop employees from transferring sensitive files to removable media devices.

All of CurrentWare’s products continue to enforce policies even when managed devices lose connection to the CurrentWare server, allowing users to be monitored and managed when they are working offline or on another network.

  • Prevent unauthorized users from copying sensitive files to external storage devices.
  • Easily disable USB ports from the convenience of a central console.
  • Assign custom device permissions for each user and computer.

AccessPatrol’s Device Permissions

AccessPatrol lets administrators easily control USB device permissions for the users and endpoints in their network by assigning Full Access, Read Only, and No Access permissions.

  • Full Access: No restriction. The user/computer can read and write to the specified external devices that are connected to the computer.
  • Read Only: Partial restriction. They can only read the information from the storage device; copying is disabled.
  • No Access: Full restriction. The user/computer cannot read or write to the external device.

Why Use a USB Blocking Tool?

As part of a multi-layered data loss prevention strategy you will need security controls to protect data against theft to USB storage devices.

AccessPatrol’s USB blocking tool 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. AccessPatrol is a critical security control for enforcing your removable media policy.
  • 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.
