Watch a demonstration of how to configure Group Policy settings to control device installation (blocking USB drives, except encrypted drives).
- Let's drop onto our demo PC and take a look…at how to create a group policy…to block the use of all USB thumb drive devices.…Then we'll remove the policy and show…how to allow users to copy data to USB drives…so long as it's using a company-issued drive,…which has been encrypted.…I'll open up Group Policy Editor to get started.…I'm using local group policy so…that all viewers can follow along.…If you've got access to a lap environment…with a domain controller, you can create a GPO…with a group policy management console…and assign it to your test computer.…
I'll expand Computer Configuration,…Administrative Templates, and System,…and then click Device Installation,…and then Device Installation Restrictions.…Double click the prevent installation of devices…that match any of these device ID policies.…And then click the Enabled radio button.…Click on the Show button…and open the Show Contents dialog box.…Here we'll use a wildcard to block…the installation of all USB devices…no matter their model or manufacturer.…
I'll type in USBSTOR*…
