There is no real difference between USB drives and USB data cards, which typically are presented to the operating system as drives as well (solid state). What, exactly, are you trying to accomplish?

In my firm, we use symantec antivirus software and all the USB ports are blocked.
this is done for preventing data transfer.
IF the users want to use any data card or pendrive, they need to approved from there manager and request sent to Support team.
The support team will record the serial address on the symantec server to allow this device to recognise.

Hope this helps you in some ideas
