    Blocking external hard drives and flash drives

    bigmac5454

      My boss wants me to block all external  hard drives and flash drives except for  certain vendors that we use. I can create a device rule to approve the ones we want but what about all the others that need to be block there must be hundreds.

          If you are using McAfee DLP, you can try below

           

          Create a removable storage device rule and assign it to blocked USB devices.

           

          Then create a device definition based on device details (you can pick any e.g. Serial Number, Volume Serial. etc.) for devices you want to exempt from restriction

           

          Modify your removable storage device rule and and select "Exclude" for the device definition you created.

           

          Hope this helps
