USB mystery in South Korea
UPI is reporting on a story from South Korea's Yonhap News Agency, which has all the ingredients of a great mystery plot: Secret battle plans, a missing USB flash drive and a potential cover-up.
"The military unit, the DSC and ministry of defense were all informed of the case but never took action," a source said in the Yonhap report. "It (the drive) contains confidential information on national security, but nobody knows where it is."
The story lacks detail, but it's not a stretch to believe that a large organization has know idea where it's IT assets are. This is a common problem.
Kanguru's Remote Management Console solves this issue for USB flash drives. Administrators can view exactly when and where each device is being used. The moment that a drive is reported missing, an automatic delete or disable command can be issued from the console.
