Having worked with government and medical companies, USB device like USB flash disks, smart phones, and multifunction network printers connecting to open USB ports is a major concern. Locking down USB ports has been an open issue for various developers. There are network solutions if you are connected to a domain, but what about standalone embedded systems...

SecureBus™ is a patent pending security product that prevents unauthorized USB devices from working in Windows®. SecureBus™ works by injecting itself under the Windows™ Kernel, and acts like a firewall for USB host ports.  Any time a USB device is plugged into the system SecureBus™ will analyze the hardware and determine if it is an authorized USB device.  If the device is not an authorized USB device then SecureBus™ will prevent it from binding with the Windows® Kernel.

A free trial, demonstration video, datasheet, and more information can be found on the SecureBus page at
