Removable Media Protection Module

Manage Removable Media on Endpoints

The OPSWAT Endpoint Security SDK Removable Media Protection module allows software engineers to build features that block end-users’ access to any unexamined portable media, including flash drives, memory cards, SIM cards, CDs, DVDs and smart phones.



Implement auto-block for all storage devices plugged into the device, or choose specific drive letters to restrict, with one simple API call.


Leverage the built-in APIs to list the folders on the storage device, alter them by deleting suspicious files, or inspect the files present on the device.


Release the drive lock once the posture of the storage device corresponds to the one imposed by the IT policies.
