Software Regulates User Access to Devices and Ports on Local Computers, Including WiFi and Bluetooth Adapters, USB and FireWire Ports, and More
SmartLine Inc. has upgraded its DeviceLock network security solution to expand administrator control over user access to devices and ports on local computers. The new edition, DeviceLock 5.6, adds the ability to block selected users or user groups from accessing PDAs and memory keys on network machines. The software also regulates access to USB and FireWire ports, Bluetooth and WiFi adapters, floppy and CD/DVD drives, tape devices, removable storage devices such as memory sticks and ZIP drives, and serial, parallel and infrared ports.
DeviceLock is designed to prevent data theft and network corruption by users who might download sensitive files to external media, inadvertently introduce viruses and other malicious programs through removable disks, or otherwise compromise network security through open devices and ports. Network administrators can also use DeviceLock to flush a storage device’s buffers.
