PortBlocker: The pivotal ingredient for Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

DataLocker PortBlocker becomes a bedrock to Data Loss Prevention (DLP) strategies.

The solution quickly and easily blocks storage ports and allows only whitelisted 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.

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

Maintain Control Of Your Ports With SafeConsole + PortBlocker

  • 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.

  • Always on Protection

    Once installed by an admin, PortBlocker will start automatically and run in the background of the user’s workstation and cannot be disabled by a non-privileged user or external programs

  • Policy Enforcement

    Restrict mass storage devices through SafeConsole whitelist policy (VID, PID, and serial number). Policies are updated automatically from SafeConsole

  • Real-time Reporting

    Endpoint activity audits are reported to SafeConsole in the Device Audit Logs
