4.4. Allowed Media Types

Allowed Media Types page lets you select which media types MetaDefender Kiosk can process for the selected workflow profile.


Processing files from Android and iPhone devices is supported when selected.
Scanning media content on an iPhone is supported by default.
iTunes can be additionally installed to ensure even deeper scanning, such access to system files, downloads, etc...

USB Whitelisting

The USB Whitelisting functionality allows you to define a whitelist of USB devices that will be allowed by MetaDefender Kiosk. When this is enabled, only USBs that match to the whitelist will be allowed.


The USB whitelist can include as many items as the administrator would like to define. Any USB that has a device ID that either equals or contains any of the items in the whitelist will be allowed. For instance, if one of the items in the whitelist is "USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_GENERAL&PROD_UDISK&REV_5.00", both "USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_GENERAL&PROD_UDISK&REV_5.00\208&0" and "USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_GENERAL&PROD_UDISK&REV_5.00\336&0" would be allowed, but "USBSTOR\DISK&VEN_GENERAL&PROD_UDISK&REV_5.01\404&0" would not.

Device IDs of USBs from previous scan sessions can be found in the Session History page.
