  1. I work in the compliance department for a state-funded agency and FISMA is at the heart of what my daily responsibilities address. I’m responsible for ensuring that all USB ports are properly protected and monitored–preventing the import and export of data via USB ports, and we use NetWrix USB Blocker for this. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles that some of the bigger products have, but it’s by far the cheapest of what I saw, and it gets the job done for us. Kudos to NetWrix for this one.
