USB management software on a network of computers

Hi Experts,

Do you know of any USB management software that will provide security on a network of computers?

For example, to restrict USB usage for all users or certain users on a computer and to enable or disable certain USB devices.

Thanks

You can disable USB via BIOS setup
You can limit user access to enabled USB by INF file permissions.

The policy settings can be found in two locations, Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Removable Storage Access and User Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Removable Storage Access.
otherwise devicelock may be a good candidate that also covers aspect of data loss prevention - http://www.devicelock.com/products/features.html
