USB Manager for iSheriff Cloud Endpoint Security

 

Important: USB manager will only enable/disable Mass Storage devices

 

The manager must be enabled in the Dashboard Policy:

 

 

 

Endpoint local manager allows for the authorization of specific USB devices :

 

 

 

 

Three devices are connected here, none of them are in the authorization list.

 

Every device starting with a ‘red’ column is disabled:

 


 

When you connect a device that is not authorized, Endpoint will disable it and show a warning via the users desktop (unless popup messages are disabled):

 

 


 

 

Endpoint will allow authorized devices to run.

Every device starting with a ‘green’ column is enabled and connected:

 


 

If USB Manager is not enabled in the users policy, you will still have a chance to manage local devices. This is to ensure that devices that were previously allowed remain allowed in the event that the USB Manager is re-enabled.

 

Note: when Policy USB Manager is not enabled, you will not have the ability to disable devices.
