hello
Any one knows of a good product that can manage, control USB drives (deny access) in a company. We are looking form something more robust then Group Policies where we can see who has access to what, white list specific people or specific USBs, etc. Would be nice if its server based, integrates with AD if possible. Environment is Windows 2008 R2 servers, XP, Windows 7 desktops. If it works on a Mac that's a huge plus.

Company would like to limit access to files so it would be difficult to copy company data to cell phone or USB and walk away with it.

Check if antivirus software you using have that feature as a add-on and it is the ideal way to manage that instead of getting separate software only for that.
Symantec, Mcafee are having those features

Frankly speaking for Win Vista and above MS built-in solution (Restrict through GPO) is pretty much do the job and it works well with computers or users basis also.

Only question is Windows XP for which you can't manage it as effective as win vista \ 7.
For WinXP you can use Symantec \ Mcafee DLP solutions
Anyhow WinXP will be phase out very soon
