San Jose, CA-August 1st, 2013-Brainzsquare announced its release of SECUDRIVE Device Control, a new device access control solution for data leakage prevention targeted for SMBs, into the market.

SECUDRIVE Device Control makes it possible to allow or block devices such as USB flash drives, external HDDs, Smartphones and tablets from be connected to the USB ports of a corporate PC. Even the allowed devices can be restricted to “read-only.” The logs relating to file activity in the allowed media are gathered and arranged for auditing purposes. For situations where the PC is carried out of the office, a separate security policy can be set and a log of all the activity that occurred will be gathered once the PC is returned to the office and reconnected with the manager program through the network. Once it has been installed on the PC, security policy can be set to block prohibited devices which could help keep stop the infection of common USB viruses such as the Stuxnet virus.

Also, since smart phones are so versatile with its capabilities, SECUDRIVE Device Control provides multiple blocking options. The phone can be restricted to only function as a removable storage device, or only allow it to use MTP, PTP, or tethering connections instead, thus allowing complete control over smartphone connections.

SECUDRIVE Device Control has the ability to deny or allow access to devices using the following ports in addition to the USB port: Serial/parallel, Bluetooth, network, WiFi, Printing, IrDA, CD/DVD, IEEE 1394, and even floppy.

SECUDRIVE Device Control comes in two versions, Basic and Enterprise. SECUDRIVE Device Control Basic is installed on a PC or server and is managed independently, therefore it is intended for smaller companies that have fewer than 20 PCs and industrial PCs which are not connected to the network. SECUDRIVE Device Control Enterprise allows the administrator to control device access and manage security policy by PC or by groups remotely, through the network. The administrator has full view of all device access activity and can gather logs on files that have been transferred using the USB port.

“It doesn’t require any dedicated DB. It is easy to use, even for those of us who are not the most computer literate, meaning an IT specialist is not necessary. After installing it on a PC, a user cannot remove it unless the administrator allows it on the program. SECUDRIVE Device Control is targeted for SMBs. It is a must-have tool for SMBs to prevent internal data leakage and could be used along with our H/W encrypted and copy protected USB products such as SECUDRIVE USB Basic, Office, CAD.” – Simon Kang, CEO of Brainzsquare.
