USB Protection Report

This Article Applies to:

  • Avast Business Hub


The USB Protection report provides an overview of all removable storage device connections to devices with USB Protection enabled. This report allows you to monitor which devices were blocked and allowed across the company. When an end user reports a blocked connection (due to policy settings), the USB Protection report can help determine if the device in question needs to be allowed.

At multi-tenant/partner level, the report will include all sites/customers by default.


The report can be accessed and scheduled from the Services section of the Reports page.

Report Details

The report will provide the following information for all devices with USB Protection installed that had a removable storage device connected within a specified time frame:

  • Site/Customer name (at multi-tenant/partner level)
  • Device alias/name
  • User who inserted the removable device
  • Removable device name, vendor, and serial number
  • Date and time the removable device was inserted
  • Access status

The counter above the list will show the total number of blocked USB connections during the specified time frame, as well as of those allowed.

By default, the report will display information for the last 30 days. You can adjust the time frame by clicking the start or the end date and then choosing different dates from the calendar, or by selecting one of the quick options on the left (Last week, Last month, Last three months).

To facilitate data lookup further, the USB Protection report can be customized by using the search field to search by device alias/name, user, removable device name, vendor, and serial number.

You can also filter the report by:

  • Site/Customer (at multi-tenant/partner level)
  • Access: Allowed, Blocked

Multiple columns can be sorted to display the results in ascending or descending order.

Scheduling and Exporting

You can set up your reports to be automatically generated on a recurring basis, then emailed to specified users. You can also manually download them in PDF or CSV format.
