Scanning removable media automatically when inserted

Is there any way to configure ENS to automaticlly scan removable media when it is inserted?  I have ENS 10.7 and EPO 5.10 update 6.

 

Thank you,

Re: Scanning removable media automatically when inserted

Thank you for contacting McAfee Community @JeffM 

Currently, ENS Threat Prevention and VSE do not scan USB (Universal Serial Bus) devices on insertion. However, By default, the on-access scanner scans USB devices only when the files on the devices are accessed. If the USB device contains Autorun or Autoplay files that perform an action when the device is mounted, this action is detected and a scan is triggered. An example of an action is a read/write to the local system.

Re: Scanning removable media automatically when inserted

Are there any other modules that can perform that function or is it just not an option at this time?

Hello @JeffM . Thank you for our post. With ENS, We do not have an option to scan removable media automatically. I would recommend you to raise a Product Enhancement Request following up the article below,

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB60021

However In order to have the USB actioned in some form immediately following insertion, you will need to look towards a separate product offering; McAfee File and Removable Media Protection. You can review what features are provided the Product Guide below,

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/file-and-removable-media-protection-5.0.8-product-guide/page/GUID-F58...


If you are not yet licensed for this product, you can discuss options with your local Sales Representative or your Sales Account Manager (SAM) if you have one.
