Disable all USB ports and remove all optical drives, so all your computers just have an internal hard drive. That will stop employees bringing in any software at all and using it on the company's computers.

The above will not cost your company any money, just get your systems administrator to do the necessary work.

It is usually better to treat this as a failure of management rather than relying on a technological solution (which is easily bypassed).

1. Draw up an acceptable usage policy and ensure that each employee receives a copy and signs that they have read it.

2. Make it clear that any breach of the policy is a disciplinary offence that may lead to the employee being dismissed.

3. Ensure that the policy is enforced and that offenders are disciplined. In extremis, dismiss persistent offenders.

If users have no administrative rights, it will be more difficult to install something without the password of the administrator.

at my company, the engineers team have right to install application by themselves, so that why I need a system that can monitor in real time when they want to install or run harmful software which is dangerous for network infrastructure. One more thing, I don want to apply restrict software through group policy on the server. can anyone suggest me which system can archive my goal?

Here is one that may suit.


If that isn't suitable, many others here.

Start at > File/folder (hard disk activity) monitoring:

Then > Monitor registry and file changes:

I agree with ijack. Understandably, some users need elevated privileges to install software to enable them to do their jobs. However, they should also be accountable for any software they install. An acceptable use policy could at the very least state that specified types of programs are not permitted. That of course is a management issue....

If you're looking for free monitoring software, I don't have any recommendations. But, a good Enterprise solution is Fireeye.

However, what's the point of monitoring if there is no policy/accountability for downloading malicious code? Just something to think about.

Do you have any Enterprise anti-virus or anti-malware software running on your network? That would be a good place to start. At least known code would be blocked when users try to install malicious programs.
