LOCK YOUR USB PORTS TO KEEP THE BAD GUYS OUT

Bad guys could steal your identity by using your computer’s USB port. They plug in a flash drive and suck out the data.image

MyUSBonly for Windows is a way around that.  The latest version of the $30 program has features for business users that allow them to configure the software remotely on all computers in an organization.

It works by creating a white-list of flash drives, MP3 players, external disk drives and other USB devices that are allowed to plug into your computer. The software then blocks any other USB device. You can get set it to send you an email each time someone attaches a USB device to your computer, or you can look at a log file. The software can run invisibly so thieves don’t know it’s there.
