DLP Content Filter on JPEG-Files on USB Sticks

Hello,

we´re evaluating the McAfee EPA+CDP Suite and we´re looking for a solution that can combine device control and content filtering. We have some travelers that are allowed to use USB-Sticks (all others are disallowed), but they only should have access on JPEG-Pictures and nothing else on that USB Stick. So my question is: is it possiable to configure DLP to filter Content on USB-Devices? If it is possiable, additionally must be ensured that really only JPEG-Files accessiable, for example: If I rename an .exe to jpg, it must be detectet. And is this Feature in the normal CDP Suite includet or is CDP-Advanced requiered?

I would be glad, if someone can answer these questions. And maybe someone has a link for the configuration for this case.

Thanks.

In theory it should work.  The product uses a file type identification method that does not rely on the extension.   But you can also filter based on just the extention too.

I beleive the granularity for the file type identification limits it to 'image files' as a whole, not JPG vs GIF, for example

That would help us a lot. Can you say, where the option for "imge files" classification can be found, or how the rule have to look like? I can´t find anything like that.
