Best practices for blocking web cams using Device Control
Last Updated July 28, 2012
Customer wants to block all web cams in environment using Symantec Endpoint Protection Device Control but does not want to block other video devices such as Scanners.
We don't have an option at this time to block just Web cams. We block by Class ID or Device ID.
1. Could block entire class id and then allow specific legitimate video devices. 2. Could block individual device ids for each web cam. 3. Could make an enhancement request to ask for Symantec Development to look at changing the feature in the future.
You can make an enhancement request for this feature.
