The Business Hub console now offers the USB Protection service with Premium and Ultimate Business Security subscriptions, allowing you to control access to USB flash drives, external HDDs, optical discs, memory cards, digital cameras, smartphones (Windows only), tablets (Windows only), and other devices that have storage capabilities. With this service, removable devices won't be able to access your end users’ data without permission.
To access and manage USB Protection, go to Policies > Service Settings > USB Protection.
Configuring USB Protection
There are two options to apply to all removable devices that might connect to the devices under a selected policy: Allow or Block.
Unless you select otherwise, USB protection is configured to allow all removable storage devices to connect to your end users’ computers.
Support for denying access to smartphones and tablets is currently unavailable for macOS.
You can configure exclusions for USB Protection in the USB Protection section of the Exclusions tab. Excluded devices will not be affected by whatever global setting has been configured in the policy.
