Application/Device Control and Granular Optical Drive Control
I was asked a question about SEP's device control that I found myself unable to answer, therefore, if anyone has any further information on the subject or links to an article, that would be great, since I have not found anything on this particular problem.
Let's say that SEP is installed on endpoints within an organization who heavily depends on disk drives for reading information. Now, the system administrator has had problems with confidential information leaving the organization after being burned onto compact disk.
Does SEP provide any type of optical drive control setting which would allow for the employees to READ information from the optical drive, but prohibit WRITE functions? Again, this is relating to the hardware itself, not the software which writes disks, so I am not asking about whether SEP can block CD burning applications (Nero, etc), but rather if SEP can restrict the optical drive itself from writing to optical media, while allowing for media to be read from the drive.
Thanks for your thoughts and have a great day!
