Disknet Pro - alternatives?

Many years ago the company I was with used a program called Disknet Pro from Reflex. This prevented users from putting removable media into their networked computers without having gone through a standalone Administrators Console.  The console would virus scan the media nd if it was clean, would add a digital signature to the media which, when placed into a system, was checked and if the signature was there it allowed data to  be transferred.
I know the program is still around, but was wondering what other people use to stop USB devices, like external HDD and Pen Drives, from accessing the system without permission?

Its not quite the same as it doesn't require a stand alone admin PC, it does allow you to control what gets on and off the PC's via USB from a central control.

Thanks for the reply - have downloaded a trial version, but it wouldn't let me install it on my works laptop as it was looking for a server.  Will try and install on the server and set it up from there and see how it goes.
