Device Control Software for Windows

USB Lock Centralized Device Control Software for Windows

USB Lock RP is classified as Device Control Software and is effective in protecting any windows operating system to secure organizations data assets and systems in IT or Industrial networks.

USB Lock Device Control Software for Windows provides capability to centrally manage the access of: Removable USB, e-Sata, Firewire drives, mobile phones, Compact discs, and Bluetooth, IrDA, Wi-Fi Transceivers to any windows client computer in the network. Besides protecting against portable storage devices it also includes capability to block keystroke injection attacks by devices such as USB Rubber Ducky, Teensy, Arduino. 

The Central administrative Console can be installed on any Windows Server/station in your Network and will allow you to control devices access from a single location. Its straightforward interface is easy to operate and settings are enforced to clients in near real-time.

USB Lock Device Control for Windows
Basic capability: Authorizing specific devices is simple. Removable storage devices can be authorized to be allowed on specific clients or across the network. The control receives records of allowed or blocked device connections  automatically. These records can be seen as per machine or as network-wide reports.
Useful functions: Auto-protect function: Protects after a set period of time, nice to have for example when engineers need to access the system for maintenance this function can be used so the system is protected automatically once they finish.
Master password function: useful to allow one-off authorization of a device from client side. The master password can be set, changed or revoked from the control at anytime.
Auto-email alerts function: Sends incoming alerts to a set email in your domain.
Extended Capability: Monitoring of authorized removable storage USB drives is available as well as AES 256 encryption enforcement. Both functionalities are included and either can be turned ON or OFF on any client with just one click.



Client-side behavior:
Upon blocking, besides denying device access to the system a full screen alert personalized with the licensed organization logo prevents access to the desktop. (The screen remains untill the unauthorized device is removed)
USB Lock device control software protects at system level regardless of user privileges, it protect windows systems even if no user is logged making it suitable for protecting Industrial or IT networks.

USB Lock Device control software evolution:

The Advanced Systems team started USB Lock device control software development in 2004 with the set goal to provide a light weight, strong software solution to protect windows networks and has focused on incorporating support to newer operating systems and to include new device technologies under its protection scope. It has remained true to its original concept of providing a straightforward tool to allow easy device control and prevent data loss in windows organizations networks.

Today in 2017 while complex highly integrated solutions proliferate, USB Lock remains a specialized solution that brings ease to complexities and provides control to the licensing organization.
USB Lock comes with permanent licensing, doesn’t require internet connection and offers its service as a tool you can call your own.

Device control for windows in stand-alone systems:

Computers that are not connected to the network, also need to be secured from same the risks posed by portable storage unauthorized usage. USB-Lock (Stand-Alone version) present a minimalistic device control interface and offers the same granular control as the Network version to Block or allow devices with ease and effectivelly secure these systems locally.
