Adding an allowing rule for one or several external devices
August 3, 2023
The function of manual adding rules by ones is not supported in the Device Control task. However, in cases when you need to add rules for one or several new external devices you can use the Generate rules based on system data option. If this scenario is applied, the application uses Windows data about all ever connected external devices and also allows for currently connected devices for filling an allowing rules list.
To add an allowing rule for one or several external devices that are currently connected:
- Open the Device Control rules window.
- Click the Add button.
- In the context menu that opens select the Generate rules based on system data option.
- In the window that opens, review the detected devices list and select a single device or several devices that you want to trust on a protected device.
- Click the Add rules for devices selected button.
New rules will be generated and added to the device control rules list.
