Is your data walking out the front door?

Do you use memory sticks to transfer data? Do you allow employees to plug their own in? Could someone walk out the door with your customer list and defect to a competitor or lose it?

The ability to plug in a memory stick, transfer a few files and take it anyway makes data theft by employees or anyone that can get access to your computers easy.

With device control we can restrict who can plug what into your computers and what they can do to stop data being copied onto drives by those who shouldn't.

What if the memory sticks got lost?

"Heathrow Airport has been fined £120,000 by the Information Commissioner's Office for "serious" data protection failings.

It comes after a staff member lost a USB stick last October containing "sensitive personal data", which was later found by a member of the public."

If you do need to have company data on a memory stick encryption to go is the solution restricting access to only those who know the key so if it got lost or stolen your data is safe.

Device control is available as part of ESET Endpoint Protection and encryption to go part of ESET Endpoint Encryption Pro.
