DeviceLock« 5.7 just released and available for download!
What's New in DeviceLock« 5.7 (versus 5.62):
- Added the new function - Auditing. DeviceLock« can audit user's activity for a particular device type. This capability allows you to audit activities that belong to a certain user or user group. DeviceLock employs the standard event logging subsystem and writes audit records to the Windows event log so they can be read using any event viewer software (such as EventViewer) as well as with DeviceLock's built-in Audit Log Viewer.
- The new management tool is added. DeviceLock« Enterprise Manager is a new generation of the "Batch Permissions" function available in DeviceLock« Manager. Based on the multithreaded engine, it speeds up all activity - including installation/uninstallation of DeviceLock« Service, setting permissions and reporting permissions - making it one of the most powerful management systems for large networks.
- Now you can control DeviceLock« via Group Policy in an Active Directory domain. DeviceLock« Group Policy Manager allows you to manage DeviceLock« settings and permissions via Group Policy as an alternative to installing DeviceLock« Manager on the server. You can deploy DeviceLock« Service and its settings to the entire network using standard policy management tools because Group Policy is a built-in mechanism of Active Directory. DeviceLock« Group Policy Manager installs as a separate tool, using setup_gp.exe (located in the devicelock.zip file).
- The read-only access type can be set directly for USB and FireWire ports. However, it affects storage devices only.
- Now you can instruct DeviceLock« to use a fixed TCP port for the RPC communication between DeviceLock« Service and DeviceLock« Manager, making it easier to configure a firewall.
