DeviceLock is a unique security solution on the market that lets System Administrators restrict access to USB, FireWire, WiFi (802.11) and Bluetooth devices on Windows 2000/XP and Windows Server 2003. Standard access control solutions coming with Windows operating systems do not allow the assignment of permissions for any of these ports or devices. Anyone can bring and plug a tiny device (such as 40GB MP3 player) and download tens of gigabytes of proprietary information. You do not have to be an administrator to use one of these devices, and you can not manage USB and FireWire devices via Group Policy.

DeviceLock provides System Administrators control over which users can access certain devices on a local computer. You do not need to physically remove or block any hardware. All you need is to install the software and assign the appropriate privileges to each user or user group.

DeviceLock significantly reduces the total cost of network management in enterprise environments by enabling IT personnel to control user access to floppy drives, other removable media, CD-ROM drives, tape devices, external hard drives, WiFi cards, Bluetooth devices or USB, FireWire, infrared, serial and parallel ports. What you get is the full control over which users, when and how will be able to use devices inside your corporate network.

DeviceLock helps hospitals and health practiotioners to achieve HIPAA compliance and operate in a secure environment.

Being extremely user friendly, DeviceLock does not require administrators to pore over help manuals just to learn how to use this program effectively.
