Blocking USB is one of the important features of With Secure that allows you to restrict users from plugging in virus-containing devices into corporate computers as well as copying important data out. Here, I will guide you to configure the USB blocking feature on With Secure’s Endpoint.
2 Steps to take
The steps are as follows:
– Create a Profile and apply a policy to block that USB profile
– Apply the profile to the devices you want to block
We proceed with the steps.
We go to Profiles >> select Create Profile to create a new profile. There are sections for windows computer, server, mac… we choose Windows computer to create a profile for windows computer
Enter a name and description for this profile
Switch to Device Control section. We enable the Device Control feature
Scroll down to the USB section. We choose Block. Then click Save.
Then proceed to apply this profile to the devices. Go to the Devices section. Select the device and select Assign
Select the profile we just created and click Assign
To test use case. Then at the endpoint we choose Updates >> Check now to immediately update the profile to the endpoint
We proceed to plug the USB into the machine and the following message will appear. The endpoint will also show information that the USB has been blocked.
