USB device management

The Agent can be configured so that it treats USB devices the same way it treats software: A hash is calculated and checked against the whitelist:

Note that the appliance doesn't make a distinction between hashes that represent devices and hashes that represent software. Unknown hashes are denied. Therefore any unknown USB device cannot be used on any computer where USB device management is configured.

To configure USB device management, go to tab "Rules", scroll upwards, double-click on "Agent config" and click on "device-check":

Unless the option "Separate devices by serial number" is configured, any USB device will be identified by its VIDPID, the vendor and product ID of the device. That way all devices that have the same VIDPID are combined in one hash. "Separate devices by serial number" will cause one hash for every individual serial number of a device.

It is possible to classify your hardware the same way as it is possible with software:
