Different approaches have been in use to prevent data leakage like blocking unauthorized devices and ports, so that unauthorized users cannot copy sensitive data to their portable devices. However, these security measures are not enough to stop a determined attempt of data theft. For instance; with broadband internet connection, an employee can easily email gigabytes of data out of the office without plugging in any device.
People save their data on non-system drives (i.e.; Drive D, E and F) of their computers due to the fact that they are usually of large space as compared to system partition (i.e.; Drive: C); and therefore can store relatively large amount of data. Furthermore, system partition keeps the files necessary to run your Operating System effectively, and in most cases you need to format that partition like in case of system crash.
Moreover, the risk and severity of data leakage is increasing day by day due to many facts, like people nowadays are carrying laptops in which they save their private data, financial records, lists of their clients and many other important files; and they most often take their laptops outside the secure premises which increase the risk of security breach. Therefore, it is necessary to secure your data from getting misused or leaked.
USB Block is a data leak prevention tool that reduces the risk and consequences of data exposure to unauthorized users. It provides a simple and cost-effective way to provide controlled access over which users can access ports, devices and drives on a local computer. It can block unauthorized use of USB drives and ports, CDs / DVDs, media and Blu-ray discs, network mapped drives and PCs as well as non-system drives of your computer.
Follow these simple steps to block unauthorized access of non-system drives of your PC:
