Lock Your USB Ports and Keep the Bad Guys Out
AC Element Company has released MyUSBOnly 6.0, a Windows USB control and security application that prevents data theft through computer's USB ports.
While USB ports have made computing much more convenient, these ports have also introduced a security threat that could subject many computer users to identity theft and data theft. It is easy for people to plug a USB storage device into your computer, and be able to quickly download your personal data. MyUSBOnly puts you in control of your USB ports, and thwarts their attempts to gain access to your computer.
New features for MyUSBOnly 6.0 include compatibility with the company's new DeepMonitor Report Manager Console, an add-on report management powerhouse that provides in-depth log information from each USB port. It's easy to review the event log, examine recent activity, view statistics, or search for specific, detailed security information. The latest version of MyUSBOnly also includes the ability to deploy and configure MyUSBOnly remotely on all the computers in the organization. Reducing the administration workload dramatically, this new Central Management feature lets the user use Microsoft AD Server to quickly protect computers with MyUSBOnly.
Setting up MyUSBOnly is easy. Take control of your USB ports by creating a whitelist of all of the USB devices that you want to allow on your computer. The program will recognize each of your flash drives, external disk drives, MP3 players, and other USB devices, and add them to its list of accepted hardware once authorized by the user. Once your list is complete, the software will then check the whitelist of allowed devices by USB brand (if you want to allow a certain USB brand that is used by the company) or by serial number (for specific USB devices you want to allow) depending on the settings desired by the user.
The software also has reporting features such as email notifications each time somebody attaches a USB device to your desktop or laptop. MyUSBOnly also maintains a security log of all attempts to gain access to your computer via USB flash drives, iPods, card-readers, or any USB hardware. Modified and copied files are included in the log entries and can be configured to send all log information to syslog. Use syslog viewers such as Kiwi Syslog Daemon TM to view all the log entries from one or more computers in the network, allowing administrators to be able to manage and audit security.
There is also an option to hide the software from the user, by not displaying any tray icons at all, so it silently works in the background without even the user knowing it's there.
Protecting your USB ports is as important as encrypting your data and maintaining anti-virus software. MyUSBOnly makes it easy to lock down your USB ports to protect this critical vulnerability on your desktop or laptop.
Whether you're a business person who needs to protect the computers in your office or store, a teacher who wants to keep students from downloading private information from the classroom computer, or a home user who needs to keep the neighbors and kids from accessing emails and financial data, MyUSBOnly has the tools that you need.
