Also, don't forget to consider the impact of data loss or malware from unauthorised use of portable media:

  • If your systems went down for a week, what would it cost? Would you lose customers?
  • If customer data was lost, could your business recover from the hefty fine?
  • If data was only stored locally and not backed up securely on a server, what impact could losing it have on your business?

Endpoint security allows you to define and control the use of removable USB devices across your organisation. By assigning USBs to specific users, you can ensure data on lost sticks can't fall into the wrong hands. Aditionally, DNA's file scan option can be used to identify files of a certain type installed or saved locally on devices, ensuring work documents don't miss company backup routines.
