How Device Control Works?

Description

See how you can lockdown, control and monitor USB and peripheral ports to stop data theft and data loss. Our Device Control protects against data loss by monitoring and controlling data transfers from PCs to removable storage devices such as USB drives.

Hi! My name is Natalie, and today I will show you how the Device Control module of Endpoint Protector works. USB Device Control is a cross-platform module that works on Windows, macOS and Linux computers; and it allows you to control the portable devices connected to the computers, and to monitor all transfers of data to authorized devices.

Among controlled device types, there are: USB Storage Devices, Internal CD/DVD, Thunderbolt, Printers, iPhone, iPad, Bluetooth, WiFi, FireWire Bus, Serial Port and others. Each of these device types can be controlled - blocked or allowed - by assigning “Deny Access” or “Allow Access” to them. If you need to allow the use of USB storage devices, but not to have users copy any files from their computers to their devices, you can set the “Read-Only Access” right.

Endpoint Protector offers a very granular control over storage devices. Rights can be assigned for all entities (on Global level), for entities included in a group (on Group level) or for specific Users or Computers. The rights’ priority is the following: Global Rights have the lowest priority, Group Rights have a higher priority than the Global Rights, and User or Computer Rights have the highest priority.

Outside Hours and Outside Network policies can be enabled, as well - if there is a need to block the use of storage devices when outside working hours or outside corporate network. These fallback policies can be set on Global, Group or Computer level.

That was the Device Control module of Endpoint Protector. Thank you for your attention!

How eDiscovery Works?

eDiscovery scans and identifies the confidential information in organizations’ endpoints and allows Administrators to take remediation actions like encrypting or deleting data at rest. It addresses both internal and external threats – unauthorized employees storing sensitive data on their computers and attackers which manage to bypass the network defense and try to get a hold of the company’s records

How Enforced Encryption Works?

Enforced Encryption allows IT Administrators to extend their Device Control policy and make sure all confidential data transferred to USB storage devices is automatically encrypted. The solution can be used on both macOS and Windows computers.

How Content Aware Protection Works?

Content-aware data loss prevention is a data loss-prevention measure that involves awareness of the context or content that is being protected. This module enables the dynamic application of policy based on the content and context at the time of an operation. These tools are used to address the risk of inadvertent or accidental leaks, or exposure of sensitive enterprise information outside authorised channels, using monitoring, filtering, blocking and remediation features.

User Remediation - Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys

User Remediation is an important new feature that can be applied to your DLP policies in Endpoint Protector 5.4.0.0. If enabled, your users will be able to override the DLP policy, adding a justification for doing so.

Currently available for the Content Aware Protection module, this feature significantly improves the experience for your end-users and reduces the time your admin team spends responding to tickets and requests to bypass a policy restriction.
