To configure the Device Control task settings:

  1. Open the Device Control window.
  2. On the General tab, configure the following task settings:
    • In the Task mode block, select one of the following task modes:
      • Active.

      If an external device you consider to be untrusted is connected to a protected device before the Device Control task is started in Active mode, the device is not blocked by the application. We recommend that you disconnect the untrusted device manually or restart the protected device. Otherwise, the Default Deny principle will not be applied to the device.

      • Statistics only.
    • Select or clear the Allow using all external devices when the Device Control task is not running check box.
  3. Click the Rules list button to edit the list of Device control rules.
  4. If necessary, configure the task start schedule settings on the Task management tab.
  5. Click the OK button in the Device Control window.

Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows immediately applies the new settings to the running task. Information about the date and time when the settings were modified, and the values of task settings before and after modification, are saved in the system audit log.
