USB Block Software for macOS
Monitor, control, and block access rights for USB, FireWire, Thunderbolt, etc. and prevent data leakage and data theft.
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 drives and other portable storage devices (such as memory cards, digital cameras, etc.), although small and harmless at a first glance, are one of the top causes of security incidents with millions of dollars in losses for businesses. The need of using a device control solution and controlling the use of removable media 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 accepting and deploying them on their networks. Therefore, stopping users from taking classified information from Mac mini, iMac, Mac Pro, MacBook on portable devices has become an imperative for the companies' data security.
Device Control by Endpoint Protector acts as a USB blocker, proactively locking down unauthorized devices from accessing endpoints and sensitive data. The solution can also monitor the use of USB storage devices, card readers, Bluetooth devices, etc. for macOS and can be managed centrally from the intuitive web-based interface.

How Device Control for macOS Works
Lost USB storage devices represent one of the top causes of a data leak, data loss, and data theft. With Device Control for macOS, small thumb drives which can store gigabytes of data, are authorized for use only by trusted employees or groups.
With Endpoint Protector Device Control, each connected device is uniquely identified. The available graphics offer visibility over the most used devices, the most active users when it comes to connected devices, and other valuable information.
Macs’ increased popularity made them more vulnerable to data security threats. Controlling the use of portable storage devices and external drives to prevent confidential data transfers is a must in nowadays business environments. Implementing Device Control only on Microsoft Windows computers would create a gap in the data protection strategy.
Even when the use of removable devices s authorized only to a category of employees, the risk of lost or stolen devices still exists. To enforce stronger security, we provide Enforced Encryption with EasyLock, forcing the users to encrypt data in transit and store sensitive documents only on encrypted devices.
