DUSKWatch USB Control
Mobility and the increased regulatory climate for better data protection and USB drive control, namely in Europe with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) have created significant challenges.
DUSKWatch USB Control provides USB drive control and mobile data protection to facilitate the tasks of IT administrators and Data Protection Officers (DPO) responsible to protect and assess personal data impacts to minimize privacy risks.
USB Drive Control
DUSKWatch USB Control allows selecting and filtering which USB storage devices may be connected to your network. Prioritize the protection and privacy of outgoing mobile data by controlling USB memory sticks.
Mobile Data Protection
DUSKWatch USB Control combines with the DUSK-USB Encryption protection for securing mobile data on USB sticks. This is a software protection that installs on USB pen drives regardless of the model, brand and manufacturer.
Specific Permissions to Groups
Append a name label to a group of USB devices and grant it specific connection permissions (restricted or unlimited usage). With labelled devices, you may structure the permissions of several groups of users that access network data using USB removable storage devices. The label function facilitates large scale policy enforcement and deployment. Ideal for any collaborative environment.
Prevent Unauthorized Data Introduction
With a simple restriction, DUSKWatch may confine the use of USB drives to a domain environment. This protection mechanism prevents sensitive data from leaving a network without eliminating the benefits of the mobility that removable drives offer. The restriction feature main objective is to prevent unauthorized content from being introduced to a network.
Privacy Risks Reduction
DUSKWatch USB Control is a data protection mechanism that guarantees that data will not be made accessible to an indefinite number of users. Completely transparent and without any user interface, it will filter the USB ports by controlling and permitting the USB thumb drives or flash-drives of your choice.
Data Protection Impact Assessment
From the different activity reports generated by the solution, it becomes easy to identify the most vulnerable workstations to illegal intrusions while getting a better understanding of the activities of USB pen drives of users.
When combined with the DUSK-USB protection, it is possible to generate detailed reports on the outgoing data flow to USB mass storage devices. Transparent shadow copies of outgoing files may be captured for content verification and validation. These reports enhance traceability and data mapping of sensitive information copied to jump drives. Ideal for data inventory: Know who copy what in real time and be in a better position to react quickly in case of an emergency.
Privacy Risks Evaluation
The log reports provide assistance to organization in assessing outgoing information flow. With more details at hand as well as a transparent copy of data file, one may identify unforeseen or unintentional uses of data, or simply ensure the users are aware of practical implications for these data accesses. In short, these reports help collect more precisions on your data flow and consequently are beneficial in determining potential privacy risks.
