Wireless HDD

Created: 03 Dec 2012 | 1 comment


I have a GoFlex wireless hard drive, would like to know if Symantec DLP 11.1.2 would detect it. If yes, what options have to be enabled on the endpoint agent configuration in order to detect/block data copy on to the wireless hard drive?

Thank You,

Yes It is possible to monitor/ block such datra transfer by application contol which helps to copy data nad the device class ID should be addede to block. 

Device control, as its name suggests, controls what devices can be used on a given computer. So if you want to disallow CD burning by a government security analyst with access to secret documents, you can do so. Symantec Endpoint Encryption (SEE) Device Control allows this to be done by policy, across the organization. Permissions can be set by group or per individual user. SEE Device Control could even have allowed Pfc. Manning to listen to Lady Gaga MP3 files, but prevented him from copying files of any type to the CD
