Computer System that Restrict Data For Going Out Of The System

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

hi, i was asked by my boss to find some info about computer system that can restrict client for bring out data out of the system. he wants to restrict the employees for bringing home some data or such as leaking it out.

i was thinking about diskless system, but do they still be able to copy things to USB storage or uploading them to cloud? i am working at CNC company and some of the drawing data is confidential

With CAM software I guess you are limited to windows so lock down as much as you can. For example you can block USB storage devices in the group policy.

so then diskless wont do?
if i block USB storage from group policy, will mouse and keyboard still work?

what about cloud?

@dualkeyboards will still work. This more a measure to stop employees to take data easily away and not much of protection against somebody who desperately want the data.

For the cloud you need to control the network environment.

Trying to ensure employees will follow the guidelines is better protection as looking everything down. If they need to move data around and you block u drives and common cloud services they will start using other workarounds like mailing them the documents and so on.
