Device control

ESET Mail Security includes automatic device (CD/DVD/USB/) control. This module allows you to scan, block or adjust extended filters/permissions and define a user's ability to access and work with a given device. This may be useful if the computer administrator wants to prevent the use of devices containing unsolicited content.

Supported external devices:

Disk storage (HDD, USB removable disk)


USB printer

FireWire Storage

Bluetooth Device

Smart card reader

Imaging Device


LPT/COM port

Portable Device

All device types

Enabling the switch next to Integrate into system activates the Device control feature in ESET Mail Security; you will need to restart your computer for this change to take effect.

Device control Rules and Groups will become active, allowing you to edit their settings.

If a device blocked by an existing rule is detected, a notification window will be displayed and access to the device will not be granted.
