We have various groups of PCs that are dedicated to access different applications/systems
& are being audited from time to time.
One common item the auditors look for is whether their USB is blocked : we used a DLP
tool to block & just showing the policy in the DLP console that there's a policy they are
being applied is not good enough.
Instead of being physically present (as we have close to 30 different locations/offices),
we can "remote desktop" to all the PCs using a central PC management tool. However,
is there a tool/software to simulate a thumb drive being inserted into a USB & we can
then launch Win Explorer to show there's no new drive being detected/mounted?
Not feasible to get IT staff (or even users as the users usually don't have a USB drive
on hand knowing that the USB ports have been blocked) to travel there to insert a
USB drive to test.
We also wanted to have this ability to simulate this as there has been cases where
the DLP policy is applied but it did not work.
