    Protect Sensitive Data

    Removable storage devices, such as USB flash drives, and mobile connection technologies, like Wi-Fi or FireWire are convenient and enhance productivity, however, they also present security risks

    AccessPatrol provides the critical peripheral device management features you need to prevent the theft of sensitive data such as personally identifiable information (PII), trade secrets, and financial records to USB drives and other portable storage devices.

    • Customize device access permissions based on user, organizational unit (OU), and endpoint device.
    • Block data transfers to protect sensitive data against exfiltration via removable storage devices.
    • Easily block USB devices, optical media, iPods, cell phones, external hard drives, and more to prevent unauthorized use
    • Optionally integrate AccessPatrol with Active Directory to manage USB security policies with your existing organizational units

    AccessPatrol’s Device Permissions

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

    The AccessPatrol device control solution will continue to enforce data protection 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.

    • Full Access: The computer or user with this access permission can read and write to the specified removable device that is connected to the computer.
    • Read Only: The computer or user with this access permission can only read the information from the specified external device that is connected to the computer. The user will not be able to copy any information to the specified external device. This option is only available to storage devices.
    • No Access: The computer or user with this access permission cannot read or write to the specified external devices that are connected to the computer.
