Lumension® Device Control enables IT managers at Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust to create a "whitelist" of approved devices that are allowed to connect to their network. Everything else is blocked from running on that network by default. The software is granular enough to drill down to a particular serial number of a device to a named employee that allows the employee to use that device for work purposes. So an employee will be enabled to use that device, while all others will be blocked. Similarly, if that employee tries to connect a device that is not on the whitelist, this will be blocked by Lumension® Device Control. Any authorized data storage can be logged by Lumension® Device Control, so that the IT department always has a record of data downloaded to and from removable USB storage devices.
