It is a balancing act.
IT admins are tasked with striking this delicate balance between locking down the network to prevent data leaks, and staying out of the way so business can get done and profit can be made. When those two goals clash, security is sacrificed in favor of productivity, and eventually bad things happen and the data is breached. The IT admin ends up being the bad guy (or the fall guy as the case may be) either way.
For many organizations, the issue of writing data to USB thumb drives or other removable media is treated as a black and white, all or nothing matter. Either USB ports and other means of writing data are completely shut down–making it more difficult for employees to be productive, or they are left wide open–leaving the organization open to the risk of both accidental and intentional data leaks.
The beauty of Zlock when it comes to enforcing data protection policies and preventing data exposure or compromise, is that it provides the flexibility organizations need to be able to effectively straddle that line. Zlock provides much more granular control so it isn’t a black and white issue. IT admins can restrict USB port access so data can only be written to an approved brand of USB thumb drive. Or, for tighter control to ensure that users don’t bring personal USB thumb drives in and copy sensitive data to them, access can be limited to a specific, company-issused USB thumb drive.
Don’t choose between security and productivity–either way, you eventually lose. Choose Zlock and get security and productivity at the same time.
