Device control

Forcepoint Neo device control is a measure of protection that restricts user access to removable storage devices.

Access rules can be defined to limit or block copying, modifying, or saving files to removable storage devices from workstations. Access rules are sets of parameters to define the device access level as follows:

  • Block: user cannot open, read, or save files to the removable storage device.
  • Read-only: user can read files from the device, but cannot save, modify, or copy files to the removable storage device.
  • Full access: user can read, write, and modify files on the removable storage device.

Forcepoint Neo administrators can create access rules based on a combination of – devices, users, and endpoints.

The Forcepoint Neo endpoint, reports the statistics for device activity and usage for each logged in user, to the Neo cloud.
