Device Control task settings
Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows applies rules to control the connection of removable drives and other external devices, and allows or blocks the use of all devices according to the Default Deny principle and specified allowing rules. The use of trusted external devices is allowed. The use of untrusted external devices is blocked by default.
Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows does not control the connection of removable drives and other external devices, but only logs information about the connection and registration of external devices on a protected device, and about the Device Control allowing rules triggered by the connected devices. The use of all external devices is allowed. This mode is set by default.
Allow using all external devices when the Device Control task is not running
The check box allows or blocks the use of external devices when the Device Control task is not running.
If the check box is selected and Device Control task is not running, Kaspersky Embedded Systems Security for Windows allows using any external devices on a protected device.
If the check box is cleared, the application blocks the use of untrusted external devices on a protected device in the following cases: the Device Control task is not running or the Kaspersky Security Service is turned off. This option is recommended to maximize the level of protection against computer security threats arising when exchanging files with external devices.
By default, the check box is cleared.
