Today’s Free Tool of the Day, NetWrix USB Blocker, enforces centralized access control to prevent unauthorized use of removable media that connects to computer USB ports, while also preventing the spread of dangerous malware. Modern enhancements made to memory sticks, removable hard disks, iPods, and other mobile USB devices leave organizations of all sizes increasingly susceptible to costly data theft, but USB Blocker relies on built-in Group Policy mechanisms to prevent unauthorized use of removable media. The NetWrix tool needs only a couple of mouse-clicks for deployment, and it integrates seamlessly into environments of all kinds. By hardening endpoint security, the free USB Blocker works as a shield against data theft that might potentially have otherwise resulted in huge monetary losses.
