SECUDRIVE Device Control Basic is a device control program installed on the PC. We will demonstrate how to install and efficiently use the product.
First, let’s install SECUDRIVE Device Control. You should enter a password for the administrator managing the security system of the company first. The rest of the steps are very simple, on this demonstration SECUDRIVE Device Control Basic will be installed in the 30-day trial version.
** For the 30-day trial version, the user trying to disable the installed program will be able to do so, since the trial version does not include the Incapacitation Program. On the authenticated full version, the program will prevent the user from disabling the program as well as prevent them from illegally copying data. Through this feature, the user will not be able to uninstall the program. Additionally, with this security feature, it will be also impossible to terminate the program. To see further details, go to the article [How does SECUDRIVE Device Control prevents illegal incapacitation of the program by a user?]
The program has been successfully installed. Now, we will set up the security policy for the program. To change the policy, the manager should enter the password which was set during the installation. The password should be kept with only the manager.
SECUDRIVE Device Control can control various devices. Here, I will set up the policy for the USB ports on the PC and USB flash drives that are connected.
The policy is set as follows.
– For the LGDACOM USB drive, I will set it to “Allow” which means ‘Read/Write’ mode.
– For the ‘Memorrette’ USB drive, I will set it to “Read-only” to allow only reading.
– For unregistered USB storage, I will set it to “Deny” to block it.
The device control policy is set. Now, let’s check out whether it runs correctly.
We have finished the installation and security policy setup. In the next post, we will describe how to prevent users from uninstalling the program or stopping the device control service.
