Introducing USB Scout

In our numerous interactions with the industry and our customers, one problem that we have found ever prevalent is the use of removable storage on company computers. Organizations are always vary of insiders stealing information on USB devices. Since mobile phones can also act as data carrying mechanisms, files can be taken from a company PC not just using a Pen Drive or an external disk storage, but by also connecting a phone using the USB cable and using the smartphone in MTP(Media Transfer) mode.

To solve this problem, we have spent months in developing a solution that we feel will put you at ease regarding data theft in your enterprise. USB Scout

USB Scout is a one of a kind software package that works in the background on a machine, silent observing and scouting for file exchanges that occur between the computer and any external medium. When a file is copied to a Pen Drive or a Smart phone, USB Scout records the activity and reports it to a central database that helps you to know all file movement in your organization via a Dashboard

You can also block USB usage on an endpoint using the dashboard and monitor all file exchanges

You can get your copy of USB Scout by visiting https://scout.informantnetworks.com and click on “Register for a Free 1 Year License” 

Once the sign-up process is complete, a download link and license key will be sent to you. A single license key can be installed in a maximum of 10 endpoints

The license confirmation email will also contain a username and password for you to login into https://scout.informantnetworks.com and manage your endpoints. All USB activity will also be shown to you once register all the endpoints and login into the personal dashboard provided to you
