Removable device protection and USB data security

McAfee Device Control protects your data from falling into the wrong hands via removable storage devices and media, such as USB drives, MP3 players, CDs, and DVDs. It enables you to specify and categorize which devices may or may not be used, and enforce what data can and cannot be transferred to these devices—in the office, at home, or on the move.
