Hello folks! Today we are going over the procedure on how we can block all USB devices using Intune.
In a special case, if you want to allow specific USB devices while blocking others via Intune. Make sure to check one of my previous posts. I am also going to mention its link here. Allow only authorized USB devices using Intune
