Manage access to different types of Media

Utilize Kandji's built in Media Access control options.

By default macOS allows users to utilize all types of media including CDs, DVDs, Disk Images and Hard Drives. Kandji provides a way to limit or prevent these types of media from being utilized by your fleet.

  1. Navigate to Blueprints in the left-hand navigation bar.
  2. Select the Blueprint you wish to edit a Parameter within.
  3. Once editing, scroll or search for the Media Parameters.
  4. From here you can specify what occurs when a user attempts to utilize each media type.
  5. After you've specified your desired settings, Save the Blueprint and these settings will be deployed to enrolled devices during their next check-in.

A restart is required for macOS to recognize and enforce changes made to media access.
Disabling Disk Images from mounting will prevent Custom App installs that utilize .dmg files.
