Re: Deny access to copy files

Indeed a technical control is not the only thing you should be looking
forward to in such a scenario.First, you need to set your policies
straight and results for non-compliance leading to consequences for
leaking intellectual property. When looking forward to technical
controls, checkout McAfee Data loss Prevention (DLP).It addresses
issues related to source code leakage as well. Go to

and also see the flash demo at

DeviceLock is a great program. Besides the very granular permission
levels, I have also like the fact I can create temporary access codes.
So if an individual needs access to a USB device for an hour or even
a month, I can give it to them.

If you don't mind spending a 2-3 thousand, there is a good product called ' DeviceLock '. This is a global policy enforcer that will restrict activates on USB, External Storage, etc, etc.. You can be very specific too like only a certain kind of thumb drive can be used by a particular individual ( this allows you to control who has the ability to even use an approved drive ). Or, maybe you only want read, but no write. You can do that too.

Anyway, hope that helps. I'm sure there are other apps that can do this. I liked DeviceLock when I did my evals.

Subject: Deny access to copy files

I am working for a software house, they are developing a software product and their requirement is to restrict programmers to take the code out of office premises due to company policy. I am trying to configure a windows based machine which denies access to copy files to external storage devices connected to USB. There is an NTFS permission "Read + Execute" I guess this could do the work but is there any other way to do it?

They also don't need programmers to take the code with them in their email.
I can restrict SMTP and POP ports but when it comes to web based emails I am clueless, How can I restrict web based emails like hotmail, gmail, yahoo there are so many of these and if I somehow manage to block all web based email sites someone can write a script to send emails, if not a script HTTP tunneling would bypass any checks and bounds defined by my proxy/gateway machine. How can I block such thing?

Any help would be highly appreciated.
