In the past, it was easy to prevent the unauthorized leakage of sensitive files just by enforcing some file attachment restrictions on email. Or stopping anyone trying to leave the building with a 5.25 inch floppy disk in their pants. But in the 21st century, external storage has gotten so tiny in stature, and so big in capacity, that it just takes a few seconds for a disgruntled employee to copy all of your company's secrets to a flash drive and leave the building! Short of putting glue into everyone's USB slots, what can you do? First things first, get a copy of today's discount software promotion for Windows, USB Security!

USB Security secures all of your computers against unwanted USB devices, including flash drives, memory card readers, and external USB hard drives, without compromising the ability to use input peripherals. With USB Security, you don't have to lose the use of your USB ports forever, but you can limit their usage to authorized devices that include mice, keyboards, and printers! In addition to preventing outright theft of your data, USB Security also helps to secure your computers and network against virus-laden flash drives.

But wait, it gets even better! USB Security can be configured to allow the use of specific USB devices that are authorized with a password that you administer! So, if you're in charge of the network and need to shuttle files back and forth, you can use a specific authorized flash drive while USB Security continues to block all of the others. And speaking of those unauthorized devices, USB Security is smart enough to log all attempts to connect forbidden USB devices, so it's easy to see who's naughty and who's nice!

Mark Stephens Yes, USB Security runs on 64-bit OS. The version is available for download.

Genie au Travail I have downloaded and installed the trial version.

On my test computer, the white list doesn't works as expected...
I have added a USB stick to the list and even after the restart of the computer, when I plug the stick, USB Security ask me to enter the password and if I want to allow or block the USB stick.

Seems to be a not well finished product.

Mark Stephens Please try to add your device again, without deleting existing item.

Thank you very much for pointing out the bug. We will be addressing this with the next release.

Yudha Yan Kusuma Hi,

I confirm the problem reported by Genie. I also notice heavy flickering on password dialog when USB device selected on the file manager. It makes entering password hard and slow. I have Zentimo and Directory Opus installed.

Mark Stephens This problem will be fixed in the next version. Please add your device twice to avoid this problem now.
