Portable Storage Device Control

Portable storage device control tools are software-based tools that prevent unwanted data leakage through peripheral storage devices. They are designed to support more-secure use of portable storage devices (such as USB flash drives, portable media players, mobile phones and flash cards) by enabling granular control of these devices. Logging and reporting capabilities, through a management console, are also included. Portable device control tools can enable the enforced encryption of the data being downloaded to a device.
