GiliSoft USB Lock is a straightforward piece of software that helps you restrict other users’ access to USB flash drives, DVDs, CDs, floppy disks, websites, utilities, as well as other devices.
The program features several blocking modes built specifically for helping you disable the reading and writing operations for USB disks, DVDs, and CDs, and deactivate the floppy drive.
What’s more, you are allowed to restrict access to user-defined websites, import the list with URLs from WL files and export it to the same file format, prevent other users from changing the IP address, and disable the network adapter.
Other notable characteristics worth mentioning allow you to disable the Task Manager, Registry Editor, and Remote Desktop Connection, restrict other users from running specific programs (EXE file format), as well as block the printer, modem, COM & LPT, as well as infrared, Bluetooth, and IEEE 1394 devices.
GiliSoft USB Lock features a password protection system to make sure no other users can access or modify programs’ settings, or uninstall it. Plus, you can provide details about your email account for retrieving the password in case you forget it.
Additionally, you can make the utility automatically send email notifications and ban the account for ten minutes if users enter the wrong password for more than five times.
During my testing I have noticed that the program carries out a task very quickly and without errors throughout the entire process. It doesn’t put a lot of stress on CPU and memory, so the overall system performance is not hampered.
As a conclusion, GiliSoft USB Lock offers a complete suite of tools for helping you apply several security-related operations to your removable devices, applications, and webpages.
