Blocking USB devices and CD/DVD with a password ?

Jump to solution

Hi,

I'm using the following configuration:

Windows 7 64-bit

ePolicy Orchestrator v5.0.1.228

Data Loss Prevention v9.3.0.617

McAfee Agent v4.8.0.333

I added some rules in order order to block or unblock USB devices and CD/DVD and it's working.

I'd like to know if it's possible to add a password to these rules and how to do it.

Yes, you are right. Also please remember you can exclude a specific removable media from the protection rule if you need.

Hi,

You can't configure the protection rule with a password.  McAfee Host DLPe designed for challenge/response method when you need to bypass the Host DLPe agent. if the client need to bypass a block issue, you need to generate bypass code from Help Desk tool. Do you need to encrypt removable media with a password or bypass to rule with a password ?

Hi,

Thanks for your time.

We need a password to bypass this protection rule.

To do so, I have to generate a bypass code from Help Desk Tool, am I right?
