nitrobit device blocker
Keep it to yourself – nitrobit device blocker protects sensitive information
By now, the focus of IT-security is on protecting customer data and intellectual property –
with good reason: data loss is considered to be one of the highest company threats.
Companies not protecting sensitive information against data theft, take many risks –
maybe even their own future.
nitrobit device blocker helps minimizing those risks. The software focuses on controlling
drive access with simple rules. By explicitly allowing – or denying access to hard drives,
CD/DVD-drives and USB Sticks companies can effectively protect their sesitive data.
Functions of nitrobit device blocker
nitrobit device blocker controls access to different volume types and restricts read or write access if needed.
The following volume types can be distinguished:
- Hard Disks
All used hard disks within the computer
- CD/DVD devices
All CD and DVD devices
- Removeable Storage
All devices that are using floppy disks, SD-cards, ZIP- and MO-media
- Network Drives
All network drives that are using Windows/CIFS or the WebDAV-Protocol
- Plug and Play devices
All storage devices connected via a Plug and Play Bus, i.e. USB sticks
and USB-hard disks as well as similar IEEE-1394 devices.
Volume access can be configured with a rich set of rules:
- Different modes of access types:
No access, read only, full access.
- Path Exceptions
Access rules based on filesystem paths, i.e.:
- Device identification
Different access rules depending on manufacturer and product.
- Management of serial numbers
Access control via USB-serial numbers.
Deactivating Communication Ports
nitrobit device blocker can inhibit data communication with external devices. The following communication ports
can be distinguished:
Data Loss Prevention
nitrobit device blocker protects your interlectual property and sensitive customer information:
Determine which USB-Sticks are allowed to be used.
Control the access to data on servers and network shares.
Prohibit the access to applications, that are saved on removeable storage devices.
Allow the use of identified USB-Sticks only.
nitrobit device blocker can be used on the following operating systems:
If you consider to control volume access with group policies we recommend to use
nitrobit policy extensions
. It includes the
whole feature set of nitrobit device blocker; furthermore, it offers central management
in a Microsoft Active Directory or nitrobit group policy environment.
