Despite the prohibition, the use of individual devices or device series can be permitted. White lists can be defined globally, per OU, per group, per user or per computer. It is also possible to enter a specific release period (specific time interval (from / to) or release from or up to a specific point in time).
- Blacklist file types:
They specifically prevent the copying of files of certain types (eg exe files) from or to removable media.
Since Security.Desk checks the signature of such a file, the file is also blocked after it has been renamed. In addition, the copying of Office files in which binary files such as exe files are embedded (embedded files) from and to removable storage can be prohibited.
The blacklist can be defined globally, per user, per OU, per group or per computer.
In addition, individual files can be specifically excluded from this general file type ban. Exceptions can be defined individually for reading and/or writing and even separately for device type (USB removable storage, CD/DVD).
- Blacklist Software:
Blacklisted programs are blocked from running on clients. The blacklist can be defined globally, per user, per OU, per group or per computer.
