A. We use USB ports to transfer files by connecting flash drives, cameras, SD Cards, iPods or any other USB port devices. It is important to protect your USB port in order to protect your computer from malware, viruses and the loss of sensitive data.

It is possible to purchase physical USB port locks. Or, in a corporate environment, you can set-up endpoint security software to centrally manage USB devices.
