Overview

This article provides steps on how to configure USB Defender to allow or disallow a specific account. By default, the Detach Unauthorized USB Device rule detaches any USB devices that are not specified in the Allowed USB Devices User Defined Group. 

Environment

  • All LEM versions
  • USB Defender

Steps

  1. In LEM console, Go to Build Tab > Rules.
  2. Edit or Clone your default 'Detach Unauthorized USB Device' rule.
  3. Add an additional condition in the Correlations section that looks like:
    SystemStatus.SourceAccount = YOUR_ACTUAL_SOURCEACCOUNT (EQUAL sign to include) 
    or
    SystemStatus.SourceAccount != YOUR_ACTUAL_SOURCEACCOUNT (NOT EQUAL sign to exclude)

 

Note: YOUR_ACTUAL_SOURCEACCOUNT can be verifed when you go to Monitor Tab > Choose any specific events (Ex. User Logon) > Select any events > Look under Event Details Box > SourceAccount. Your rule will be based on the SourceAccount you see there.
