Why Use a USB blocker?

  • 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 USB control features for full control over how removable media and other peripherals are used in your organization.
