Re: Secure Network | Requirements

Hi Aslam,
 
From what I know, no one should be putting anything onto the system from outside
unless they are required by their job to work remotely/from home, in that case
the machine that they work remotely/from home on should be a laptop managed by
the corporate IT department provided by the company. In this case the IT
department should have taken steps to ensure that this laptop is as clean as
acceptable for the company.
Any data needed by any other employees should already be on the corporate
machines at the office.
Alternatively they could just email themselves whatever they need as long as its
not something that the mail provider blocks (ie. gmail) or not too big. This
when downloaded will be coming over http or https which should be allowed.

All

I would like to know whether anyone have had any solution for the
following scenario and also need to have an insight on best practices
in security industry


I have setup a network where the management has requested to block all
kind of access to the network by means of blocking USB, CD-Drives as
well filtering internet by blocking all ports except for the needed
ones ( even file sharing)

So in this scenario i have one section who commonly bring data from
outside and all the data is whether on their cell phones or thumb
drives and those media are not secure and also not properly maintained
in terms of viruses / trojans so would like to what is the best
practice in this scenario to copy such data to the network ? and also
has anyone implemented such setup , please share your experiences ?


Regards

-Aslam
