This month’s update introduces a new Removable Device Control feature aimed at managing and monitoring external devices connected to your device. This robust new functionality enables administrators to maintain a high level of security by controlling access to USB drives, external hard disks, and other removable media or peripheral hardwares that can pose a risk of malware infection or data leakage.

Removable Device Control is particularly valuable in environments where data security is highly important. It mitigates the risk of data breaches by restricting system access to authorized removable devices only. Additionally, it empowers administrators to swiftly address potential threats by blocking non-compliant devices, thereby maintaining adherence to the organization’s security protocols.
