Classified as USB port control for enterprise, USB-Lock-RP software is an administrative and enforcement tool specifically designed block USB devices to protect data assets in windows operating systems, without concern to dependencies, at a very small memory/storage footprint.

The Management console operates on-premises within the enterprise network and provides real-time granular control and visibility over USB activity and endpoint computers. It controls devices access policy and enforces rules to specific computers, as well as groups of computers with ease. Receives devices connection alerts and logs events automatically, including USB Monitoring for details on approved file transfers.

USB Lock RP detects devices hardware ID to allow specific USB devices and block the rest without interfering with harmless peripherals. USB flash drives can be authorized to work on specific machines, groups or across the network

.

USB Lockdown is required to effectively prevent data loss and malware infection by means of USB media, USB Lock rejects unauthorized devices at system level and blocks USB incoming and outgoing data.

USB Lockdown

Refers to automatically blocking access to the computer desktop. Lockdown occurs when unauthorized USB storage devices (e.g., USB 2.0, USB 3.x) are connected to the usb ports (e.g., standard USB type-A, USB type-C), or remote USB. USB-Lock-RP considers the unauthorized connection of usb storage devices a serious intrusion attempt that should be stopped by all means.

USB Lockdown (a.k.a., USB blocking) is part of the software redundant measures applied to protect the system. This measures take place upon USB detection and included preventing drivers to load, stopping, dismounting, disabling, ejecting devices while blocking USB and access to the desktop. Protection measures escalated depending on the device type and the device status but lockdown is normally included when blocking usb and other removable storage under the software protection scope.

USB Lockdown

USB blocking is a software capability used by IT security administrators to protect computer systems and data assets from threats posed by the connection of unauthorized USB peripherals.

Blocking USB & desktop Lockdown are simultaneous and present full-screen window alerts that extend to multiple monitors.
Lockdown remains until any of the following conditions is met:

  • The blocked USB device is removed. (client-side)
  • The master password is used. (client-side.)
  • The sector is unprotected. (control-side)
  • The USB device is authorized. (control-side)



USB Lock RP Straightforward Operation

Blocking USB Devices on Specific Computers

  1. Select a client PC from the USB-Lock-RP Control Dashboard network list.
  2. Click on the left side lock.

Done!, you have just protected the removable drives sector on the selected computer in realtime, now the following devices will be blocked: USB, eSATA and Firewire drives, Mobile phones (MTP Protocol), and memory cards while also smart blocking USB keystroke injection attacks. Setting are enforced in real-time (To unprotect just click the lock again).


Locking Peripheral Ports on Groups of Computers

By default 5 groups are created, and all new installed clients will belong to group 1 as seen on the groups column, so you are ready to lock removable storage on all computers at this point.

  1. Rename groups using the group rename function.(optional.)
  2. Add computers to groups by right clicking on the selected machine and choosing a group name.(optional.)
  3. Click the Group security button and choose the group name, sector (e.g., Removable drives), desired action (e.g., Protect) and press OK.

Great!, you just Locked removable drives sector on all computers that belong to the chosen group. You will see all computers in that group changing its security status to protected in real-time.


Whitelist USB Thumb drives and Smartphones

Authorizing specific USB pen drives and Mobile phones is as easy, just insert the device you need to authorize (at the control or at the client) and press authorize. Done!

Besides USB Control (Removable Storage Sector), three other sectors to manage are available and are as easy to protect: CD/DVD Sector, iRDA/Bluetooth Sector, and WiFi Sector.

Blocked or authorized device connection to any client computer automatically generate an alert event stored encrypted at Control server. This records are readable from within the Central USB-Lock-RP Device Control interface and show date-time, Hardware ID, logged user & machine name.

At client-side a full screen alert instructs the user to remove the device, this alerts bear the licensed organization logo at top-left corner.

USB Monitoring

Monitoring the transfer of files to removable drives is activated or deactivated with just one click independently of the removable storage sector protection state. (While protected or unprotected state)
Monitored data include the name and exact weight of transferred files from the client endpoint PC to flash drives, logged user, device hardware ID, source machine name, date/time when the event started.
Records are sent encrypted AES 256 hex masked from the endpoint computer to the control in near real-time and are organized at the control by endpoint machine name/date/time for review as needed.
At the Central control server the collected data remains encrypted and same as all device insertion attempts records is only readable within the Control interface.


USB Encryption

The protection of data inside removable storage is done by forcing automatic encryption, this function can also be turned ON or OFF with just one click. (Monitoring needs to be activated for USB encryption to work).

When USB encryption is active all files transferred from the endpoint computer to authorized USB flash drives are automatically AES 256 encrypted. (all data not just the headers)

Stored files on encrypted USB Thumb drives can be opened within the endpoint originating client or within any other endpoint USB-Lock-RP client that has USB Encryption activated. (files are automatically decrypted in those systems when opened)

This function ensures that information contained inside authorized devices is only accessible within determined computers in the network and none outside the network.


Protection against badUSB devices

Protecting against badUSB device e.g. USB Rubber Ducky is very important. This device type is extremely dangerous, its firmware has been modified to impersonate Human interface devices (HID) such as keyboards.

This class of BadUSB can inflict keystroke injection attacks and introduce malicious payloads to harm the operating system and network infrastructure. Blocking BadUSB is a standard function in USB Lock, the program makes a quick analysis when it detects any change on keyboard or mouse enumeration to prevent such attacks, other than that keyboards and mouse can work normally without restriction.
