USB Device Management

Block/disable USB devices in the network

The usage of portable storage devices is a growing reality. It poses two main concerns for an organization i;e data theft and malware injection.

Desktop Central's secure USB feature would help administrators limit the scope of USB device usage, selectively based on the various roles and departments. This feature enables administrators to centrally control the usage of various USB devices in the network by blocking or disabling them. It prevents unauthorized download and upload activities as well as the possibility to inject harmful malware into the network. The restriction can be set not just on the computer and user level but also on the manufacturer type, providing more accessibility.

  • Mouse

USB device audit.

An IT administrator faces a cumbersome task of analyzing the usage of pen drives, CDs, or any other portable storage devices that might jeopardize your company’s data or security. It is always better to record these activites for future auditing. Desktop Central helps track the usage of said USB devices and provides you all the necessary information such as:

  • Device name
  • User name
  • Device type
  • Time duration
  • Manufacturer and more.

You can choose either a summary or a detailed view of the data. The reports can be exported as a CSV or PDF for further analysis.
