OT - Portable Media Protection / Encryption


I was wondering if anybody experience of software to control access to
USB / portable media either by password protection or a system
management application.

I am looking for only authorised USB devices to be attached to servers,
desktops, latops etc.

I am not sure at moment what is out there and the pros and cons.

I suppose on the USB side of things there is the control of recognising
the device on a computer and then maybe password/encryption of the data.

Any advice would be great.
