Can DLP/Device Control block or allow printing based on location?

We are licensed for DLP/Device Control, but not the full blown DLP endpoint (unfortunately we are using another product for that).

I was asked to find out if it is possible, with our existing licensing, if we could allow printing when users are on our internal network, but block them from printing to home printers when they are working remotely.  

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hello and thank you for posting here!

The McAfee DLP Endpoint product does have the capability to do exactly this using the Printing Protection rule. However, this rule is only available under the full Data Protection and Device Control license.

Hi Corey,

Thank you for your response.  We are aware of the Printer Protection rule feature if we upgrade our license, but the wish list for new security products is much larger than our budget.  So we are trying to explore all our options with the security products we currently own.

I also made a similar post in the ENS forum to see if it can be accomplished with the Firewall since we have already built in location awareness.

Thanks again.
