Hi Deepak,

Hope so you’re doing well, webroot includes the capability to scan USB drives and external devices for malware when they are connected to the endpoint, whether online or offline. This helps detect and prevent the spread of malware through removable media.

Hope so this will work for you!

Have a client that regularly needs to use usb flash drives and this certainly works for them to check the drives before handing over to their clients
