Thanks for writing...
We have this Pen tablet device in all the systems, around 50 systems, so obviously we need to keep the USB ports open, but removable storage access via USB port needs to be blocked, is it possible...
I'll check out the link you posted...
I have two options that I would recommend.
1) Secure Wave's Device Control. I highly recommend this product!!
- With this product you can
Lock down all USBs except for a single PC, for a specific User on that PC, or for all the previous AND a specific USB device that you specify. Meaning that you scan their USB stick and ONLY that stick will work on THAT PC, and ONLY for THAT User.
You can also monitor what they download and cache those documents for auditing.
You can control CDs, CD-ROM drives, Printers etc etc. Its is extremely granular and very powerful. Maintenance is a breeze.
2) Winternals is said to have some similar solutions, but I have not had the time to test. However, I value the judgment of the people that suggested it so I feel its worth a look.
I worked with Device Lock, but I did not have the granularity that I needed or the over all options.
