PortBlocker- Data Loss Prevention for Removable Storage

DataLocker PortBlocker is a “Simply Secure” approach to Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for removable storage that blocks USB ports and allows only whitelisted USB mass storage devices to be mounted on user workstations with PortBlocker installed. DataLocker PortBlocker is a solution managed by SafeConsole to control which devices are allowed, set policies for different groups, set ports in read-only mode, see audit logs and activity, plus much more.

DLP Solutions
  • Limit USB mass storage port access to only whitelisted devices
  • Stop the usage of untrusted USB devices which potentially have malware
  • Reports activity back to SafeConsole to monitor USB port usage
  • Set USB ports in Read-Only mode to disable write capabilities on USB storage devices

SafeConsole is a secure cloud or on-premises management platform that allows your organization to centrally manage SafeConsole compatible encrypted USB storage devices easily and efficiently. A new or existing SafeConsole account is required along with a PortBlocker license per year per user workstation install. New accounts require a one time starter (base). SafeConsole base and PortBlocker licenses sold separately.

Easy and Automatic

The user will be notified when a blocked USB device is inserted and PortBlocker will deny access to the device. The instance will automatically be reported to the SafeConsole audit log.

Seamless Integration

Seamlessly running in the background of user workstations, PortBlocker was built to work alongside existing SafeConsole features and policies.

Active Monitoring

When blocked USB devices are detected in a USB port, users are unable to read from or write to the USB and SafeConsole admins will receive notifications in the PortBlocker activity log within the central management platform.
