Super-gluing your USB ports is not the best solution in the long run.  USB Flash Drives are so popular for a reason - they are extremely useful and increase the productivity of your employees.  You can have both convenience and security by taking the right steps to secure your USB ports:

  1. Select company-approved flash drives - This drive should implement hardware-level encryption that forces the user to encrypt all data.
  2. Block all other USB devices - There are number of ways to enforce this through MS Group Policies or Endpoint security applications.
  3. Remotely manage your flash drives - Remote management provides control over your devices even after they leave your network.  Disable and delete lost/stolen drives and provide regulators with the audit log that shows where, when and how.
