|Activation of individual USB devices
Since version 3.4 identical USB devices can be distinguished – and enabled or disabled.
|Notification for forbidden USB mass storage devices
If forbidden USB mass storage devices are plugged in, a notification appears and the workstation is locked (immediately unlockable). Behaviour is configurable with variable NoUsbStorInfo.
|Improved detection of digital cameras und smartphones
In some circumstances in older USBSecure versions allowed cameras and smartphones were not activated when plugged in. Problem was solved.
|Minor enhancements and error patches
Some minor enhancements and error patches were implemented. Amongst others the following problem was solved: USBSecure service terminated in some rare situations in Windows 10 shortly after boot.
New in version 3.3
Blacklists are allowed now in usb.cfg. This enables configurations like „Allow any USB device except USB mass storage devices“.
|Windows 10 support
Support for Windows 10 (32 and 64 bit).
New in version 3.2
With modified USB devices (e.g. USB sticks masked as keyboards) an attacker is able to run malicious code on your workstation. USBSecure Professional blocks additional keyboards and prevents code execution. Only a warning can be displayed or the keyboard can be blocked completely.
|Deactivation of devices in logged of state configurable
By default all USB devices not enabled for all users will be deactivated if no user is logged on. In some cases this behaviour is undesirable, e.g. if USB devices are required for the log on process. Now this behaviour is adjustable with a configuration entry.
New in version 3.1
|Windows 8 / 8.1 supported|
|Support of eSATA devices
External S-ATA ports give users the ability to plug-in fast external eSATA drives or sticks. USBSecure Professional 3.1 restricts the access to these devices on a per-user-basis.
New in version 3.0
|Activation of complete device classes
Device classes like keyboards, mouses, scanners or mass storage devices can be enabled for several users or all users with only one entry. The result is reduced administrative effort.
|Centralized inventory of USB devices
This feature helps you collect information about existing USB devices for your initial USBSecure impementation.
|Backup of config files
Config file backup independently of other backup routines. e.g. for hourly backups.
|MSI package for easy installation
Easy deployment via group policies or software delivery system.
|Ejection of removable storage devices
Removable storage devices (e.g. USB sticks), which cannot be disabled by the operating system because they are in use, will be ejected.
|No additional tools required
Up to Version 2, some free Microsoft tools were required. Version 3 comes with all necessary tools.
|Comments in all config files with #
For better readability of the config files.
|Support of FireWire ports (on/off) and SCSI CD drives (on/off)|
|User names in the format domain\user or user@domain|
