Not sure why following the link isn't working, just search the admin guide from support centre for Harmony Endpoint.

Section: "Configuring Media Encryption & Port Protection"

Under port protection, the only thing that i saw there was "Windows_CE_Devices_USB".

It did not block access to USB stick/pen drive.

Suggest investigating auto device discovery further e.g.

but that explains how to exclude certain drives. I am at the previous stage- trying to block globally.

How did you configure the default read/write settings or rather what configuration have you done?
