Press release: DeviceLock Endpoint Security Software Now Controls Local Printing and Filters Syncs To Palm Devices

What's New in DeviceLock« 6.3 (versus 6.2.1):

  • Added granular access control, auditing and shadowing for Palm OS devices. Now you can set permissions for different objects (pictures, contacts, e-mails, etc.) transferring to/from PDAs running Palm OS. Also, you can enable auditing and shadowing for objects copying from the PCs to PDAs. All connection interfaces (USB, COM, IrDA, Bluetooth, WiFi) are supported.

  • Added granular access control, auditing and shadowing for local and network printers. Now you can control who can send documents to printers as well as when printing is permissible. All connection interfaces (USB, LPT, network, etc.) are supported. Also, you can enable auditing and shadowing of printing activities. Later, saved copies of any printed documents can be viewed using the built-in viewer.

  • New flag for Security Settings parameters - "Access control for virtual printers". By disabling this flag you can prevent control, audit and shadowing of those printers which do not send documents to real devices, but instead print to files (e.g. PDF converters).

  • Now using the Temporary White List it is possible to allow a device for a current userĺs session.

  • Improved compatibility with Windows Vista Service Pack 1.

  • Improved Windows 2000 TrueCrypt support.
