Grant Temporary Access to Blocked USB Devices

AccessPatrol can grant temporary access to blocked USB devices with the access code generator.

Use the generator to produce a time-limited, device-specific, and single-use code that provides users with full access permissions to their peripheral devices.

Manage Access Requests in the Web Console

  • End-users submit access code generation requests and activates access codes from the CurrentWare client in their system tray
  • End-users are prompted to provide their email address, the reason for their policy exemption request, and the desired date/duration for the exemption
  • Admins respond to requests in the web console where they can adjust the duration of the access code, accept/deny requests, provide a reason for their response, automatically retain a log of all access requests, and track which access codes have been activated
  • Admins and users receive alerts and updates related to access codes in their email inbox

About Access Codes

  • Access codes work on remote computers, even without an internet connection
  • Balance security and productivity by providing exemptions to your USB security policies for edge-cases such as trusted vendors, special guests, and other third-parties
  • Access codes are single-use, unique to a specific computer, and automatically expire to prevent misuse
