Share USB over the Network
USB Network Gate is a feature-rich solution that perfectly shares USB over wired and wireless networks on Windows, Linux, Mac, and Android platforms. The software will let you create a fast and secure connection to the desired USB device regardless of its physical location.
Share USB over the Network
Make devices available in a virtual machine
When working in a virtual environment, you may run a program that requires a USB security key. Also, you may need to access some content stored on a local USB flash drive. USB Network Gate will help you redirect the host’s USB ports and devices to the guest OS. The software is fully compatible with VMware, VMware ESX, Citrix XenDesktop and Microsoft Hyper-V.
Connect to USB in RDP session
USB Network Gate is an excellent solution for those who often connect to a remote computer via the Remote Desktop Protocol client. The program provides easy access to any local USB device while working in a remote desktop session. Starting from version 7.0, USB Network Gate supports the Citrix ICA protocols as well.
Isolation NEW

Highly-configurable USB device isolation

In Windows, there is no default way to control access to connected USB devices. This is especially problematic when many users either share a PC or the resources of the RDP server. Fortunately, USB Network Gate lets you isolate USB devices from others.

Illustration Isolation

Per-session isolation

Useful for the scenario that includes many Remote Desktop sessions. A USB device becomes available to a particular user of a particular RDP session.

Per-user isolation

Limit access to a USB device to a specific Windows account. This is useful for workstations that might have multiple operators logging in.

Note: USB device isolation was tested with multiple USB devices, including cameras, scanners, printers, external hard drives, and many others. The minimum OS requirements are Windows 8. All Windows Server versions are compatible.
