McAfee Encrypted USB & DLP

I know that McAfee Encrypted USB provide strong access control for removable USB storage and encrypt data in hardware. We are planning to use it, but the company policy want to stop using files and data from outside (just use the company email), now if we give a user McAfee Encrypted USB stick, will he be able to use this usb  outside the company and bring file from outside to the company pc’s? if yes how can use dlp via epo to prevent incoming files copy?

I appreciate your help

You would have to use endpoint encryption for file and folder for this. You can force encryption(onto standard non encrypted USB sticks) using the company encryption key, this could then only be read by machines that have this encryption key on.

If I understand your question - you want to prevent users from copying files from the encrypted USB stick to a company PC?  But... you also want users to be able to copy files from the encrypted USB if its a 'company' file?  Now that shounds like an interesting policy.

the company policy want to use the McAfee Encrypted USB only inside the company, so the user will not be able to use it outside, he will be able to deal with the company's files only. can we do this by hdlp?
