Announcing the Device Control API 1.0 Release!

Posted on November 30, 2020

What is it?

The Device Control API lets you view, manage, approve and implement blocking policies across your organization for external USB storage devices. This gives IT and Security Operations administrators direct access to the external devices in their environment to change how those devices can operate.

Who is it for?

Carbon Black Cloud Endpoint Standard customers with a Windows sensor or above.

What can you do with it?

  • Retrieve an inventory of external devices and their associated metadata within an organization
  • Search for a specific external device and its associated metadata
  • Create an approval for an external device, set of devices, or for specific vendor and product models
  • Cross reference additional external device data after an alert

Where do I go to get started?

See the Device Control API documentation for instructions on authenticating and more.
