SmartLines DeviceLock blocks security breaches cause by insiders copying sensitive data to removable media. Whether on one computer or the entire network, the administrator can restrict access to USB drives, writable CD drives, floppy disks, and other potentially insecure devices, as well as serial, parallel, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connections. Permissions can be based on time of day and day of week, and devices can remain accessible in read-only mode.
