Device Filter MAC

Faronics Device Filter empowers IT administrators with the ability to block peripheral devices from connecting to desktop computers. Any peripheral device—such as an iPod, USB drive, Bluetooth phone, or digital camera—can be managed to prevent unauthorized data transfers or connections from taking place. IT personnel are able to assign permanent, temporary, or one-time-only authorizations to devices, and can also assign constraints to filter devices or network connections based on capacity. With the ability to generate usage reports, Device Filter allows system administrators to monitor the network-wide device connections and file transfers that have taken place.
