Devices & Software to Protect Your Data

The need of protecting corporate endpoints has been greatly increased in today’s business environment because the threats to endpoint devices have greatly increased in the past decade. Long gone are the days when all you had to worry about were viruses and malware.

Today securing endpoint devices and data means you have to deal with new types of issues like unauthorized use of USB drives, outdated patches, more hazardous viruses and malware which may contain rootkits, unauthorized and malicious programs and certain other threats relating remote endpoints like credential hijacking.

The matter which makes the situation even more complicated is the ever-increasing mobility of endpoint devices. Sales Executives fly here, Managers drive here… everyone is on the go which requires the need of a security strategy that can keep mobile devices locked down and mobile data protected.

Security threats have greatly increased so do the numbers of endpoint security applications and software used to stop them. It is common practice for many enterprise PCs to run separate antivirus, desktop firewall, anti-spyware, and file encryption software. All of these security components are centrally managed by a single purpose console, but multi-agent approach makes it costly as well as difficult to maintain; for example, when you have several computers in your office. This emphasizes the need of the technology that takes a centralized, unified approach to provide complete endpoint security so that you can secure your business data once and for all.

The most reliable and useful way to prevent data leak is the use of data leak prevention software such as USB Block which can eradicate the chances of breaches in your security system by blocking unauthorized access of removable storage devices which do not belong to you and can be used to copy and leak out your sensitive data.

USB Block is a software that provides complete end point security. The term endpoint security is broadly used to define different aspects of data security primarily refers to securing computers or devices that acts as a network client and serve as a workstation such as USB drives, CDs, DVDs, Floppy disks and any other disk that uses the disk hub, bay, combo or CD/DVD drive and allots a drive letter.

USB Block permits you to determine which devices can access your files and folders. It lets you use your own removable devices like USB drives, CDs and DVDs to copy and transfer your data while keep all other devices blocked from accessing your important and sensitive information.

It comes into use if you have many computers and are afraid that someone may plug in his USB drives and start copying your data or upload a malicious code or virus to your operating system or the network. You can simply install USB Block on all the computers you have and then sit back and relax! Your data is protected from data theft and data leaked.

It asks for the password whenever any storage device tries to access your data; if correct password is entered, access will be granted to that device and you can copy your data to it. This way, you can prevent illegal copy, duplication or stealing of your data.
