PGP Endpoint Device Control

Prevents data loss from removable storage and portable device connections

Technical Specifications FAQ

Overview

Removable digital storage devices (such as USB flash drives and CD/DVD drives) and mobile connection technologies (such as Wi-Fi, FireWire, and Bluetooth) are increasingly popular in the enterprise environment. They are convenient and enhance productivity, but present new security risks to the enterprise. The data on these removable endpoint devices and media may contain intellectual property or sensitive customer information. Company policy and employee education can be insufficient to safeguard the data from insider threats and accidental data leakage. The exposure of sensitive data that results from the loss or theft of a removable storage device or medium can result in financial expenses, legal ramifications, and brand damage.
