Description

Review the default hardware devices list in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager

By default, Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager includes a list of hardware devices. The list appears on the Policies tab in Symantec Endpoint Protection Manager under Policy Components. You use this list to select the devices that you want to control on your client computers.

If you want to control a device that is not included in the list, you must add the device first.

See About the hardware devices list.

Add devices to the hardware devices list (if necessary)

When you add a device to the device list, you need a class ID or device ID for the device.

See Adding a hardware device to the Hardware Devices list.

See Obtaining a class ID or device ID.

Configure device control

Specify the devices that you want to block or exclude from blocking.

See Configuring device control.
