The increased use of portable devices has not only improved the efficiency and mobility of our daily work, but at the same time also significantly increased the threats to companies’ data security. USB devices and other portable storage devices (such as memory cards, digital cameras, CDs/DVDs, etc.), although small and at a first glance harmless, are one of the top causes for security incidents with millions of dollars in losses for businesses. The need of using a device control solution and controlling the use of devices in corporate environments has become nowadays a must in order to keep up with the latest security challenges.
Macs are becoming an integral part of the business world today as organizations are openly accepting and deploying them on their networks. Therefore, stopping users from taking classified information from Macs minis, iMacs, Mac Pros, MacBooks onto portable devices has become an imperative for the companies' data security.
Locking down and monitoring proactively the use of USB, CD/DVD, card readers, etc. is possible with Device Control by Endpoint Protector for Mac OS X and can be managed centrally from the intuitive web-based interface.
If you wish to add an additional layer of security, Content Aware Protection is also available for Mac OS X.
