SmartLine, Inc Releases DeviceLock 5.0

Protect your corporate network by locking user access to removable devices.

SmartLine, Inc. has released new version of DeviceLock 5.0, a powerful tool that will let you restrict access to local devices running Windows NT/2000/XP.

Preventing the introduction of inappropriate software and data is important when trying to protect and administer a company’s computer network. Almost 80% of security breaches come from the inside and hence it is imperative to control who has access to external media drives. The traditional solution has been a physical lock on the floppy drive. DeviceLock eliminates the need for physical locks and has a number of advantages. There are no physical keys to store and manage – only a software solution.

DeviceLock significantly reduces the total cost of network management in enterprise environments by enabling IT personnel to control user access to floppy drives, other removable media, CD-ROM drives, tape devices or serial and parallel ports. Any types of the file systems are supported.

DeviceLock can protect network and local computers against viruses, trojans and other malicious programs often injected from removable disks. DeviceLock protects disks from accidental or intentional formatting.

DeviceLock even supports remote installs, enabling a Systems Administrator to set up a service on remote machines without ever having to physically go to them.

System requirements: DeviceLock requires Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000 or Windows XP, 24MB RAM, a hard drive with 1 MB of hard disk space.

DeviceLock costs $35(US) for a single-user license. It is available from SmartLine Inc.,, e-mail: A free, fully functional demo is available for download from
