"Device exemption” feature is based on the DeviceID (Device Instance Path), and devices are exempted based on a substring match.You can configure any search patterns or device IDs.
For instance if the Device ID was identified as USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_KINGSTON&PROD_DATATRAVELER_G3&REV_1.00\001CC0EC321DFBC0B7172686 &0,any of the below strings will exempt the device from being encrypted
- KINGSTON -> Would exempt all KINGSTON devices including the one above
- DATATRAVELER -> would exclude all DATATRAVELER models including one above. The MAKE may or may not be KINGSTON
- G3 -> Any device with G3 would beexcluded including the one above
- DISK&VEN_KINGSTON&PROD_DATATRAVELER_G3&REV_1.00 and so on….
