Re: Device Control Overview

Hi Julker,

 

the device control settings are only available in "advanced mode" view of Policy Manager Console. Once switched to advanced mode you'll find "F-Secure Device Control" among the different modules.

Re: Device Control Overview

Is there still no tool for adding multiple device-ids to PM?

  Adding exceptions (grant access to the specific device)

It is possible to define rules that allows to use some specific device when all other devices of same class will be blocked:

  1. Get Hardware ID of device that should be allowed. The Hardware ID have to be more specific that ID used to block the device.
  2. Add new rule in Hardware Devices table with the ID.
  3. Set "Full access" access level for the new created rule.
  4. Set Active "Yes" for the new created rule.

 

Hi

Can U take a look on my settings and tell me what is wrong that my exception doesn't work

DataTravel3 has Full access but it's blocked by the first rule. I want to block all the usb mass devices except those I will choose not to.

thx

Re: Device Control Overview

Hello kallstrom,

 

Please, try to use "Hardware Ids" property value from Device Manager.

Example: USB\VID_0457&PID0151

or: USB\VID_0457&PID0151&REV_0100

 

Best regards,

Re: Device Control Overview

Do U plan to create a tool or import/export option for this module? My office has 5 branches, each has separate PMC. So i need to enter 1000 devices in each console :/

Re: Device Control Overview

Sorry for incorrect information. The feature is implemented already in PM 11 (or even earlier). You need to select the rows (or whole table)  and by right click of the mouse you'll get the possibility to "Export table to CSV" and "Import table form CSV".

 

Best regards,
