There are several risks associated with plugging a USB drive into your work station: from inadvertent data loss to malicious information theft and malware.
But as the fast-paced business environment of today requires employees to have anytime, anywhere access to corporate data and business applications, putting blocking transfer of data to removable media may seem counter-productive.
Ionic Security has developed a connector for SymantecTM FlexResponse DLP which allows removable media devices to be used on any machine governed by the SymantecTM DLP endpoint. By protecting data before it lands on the removable media, the solution also allows files to be safely transferred via USB drives, which ensures user flexibility is maintained. Protection is applied at the data level and travels with the data, wherever it goes; even when data is further copied to another device, emailed as an attachment, or uploaded to a cloud service.
