DeviceLock has announced availability of version 6. 4 of its software that secures and controls USB ports. DeviceLock controls data leakage channels often overlooked by other vendors, said Alexei Lesnykh, DeviceLock product manager. It also protects against malware infiltration resulting from insider threats.
The product can detect removable storage devices and prevents users from copying sensitive data to unencrypted removable storage.
DeviceLock integrates with third-party encryption products such as PGP whole disk encryption, TrueCrypt and Lexar Safe PSD S1100, according to the company.
Organizations can create policies that enable users to access data via a laptop computer when they are connected at the office, while restricting activities when connected remotely, such as at an at an airport, said Vladimir Chernavksy, president of North America operations for DeviceLock.
Organizations can enforce policy by reviewing logs and seeing what data was copied to devices, the company said. DeviceLock also traces all print-related events and if necessary, can shadow any printed documents for forensic analysis.
DeviceLock is source-code certified for use in classified networks in the United States and Russia, the company added.More information
