Eliminate Troubleshooting with a Single Restart
With Faronics Deep Freeze, you can cease to worry about any computer issues caused by visits to malicious sites, accidental changes or the like.

When things go awry, simply reboot the machine and it will be returned to its initial
pristine configuration.

Protection Against Phishing

Deep Freeze reverses malicious changes on reboot, protecting computers from threats such as phishing.

Zero-day Threats

Deep Freeze provides a simple and effective way to clear all malicious changes to your system, including zero-day threats.

Eliminate Lock Down Defense

Avoid the necessity of adopting restrictive defense or reactionary approaches for maintaining security.

License Compliance

Deep Freeze removes all software installed without your authorization with a single reboot, helping your organization achieve license compliance.

Completely Non-Restrictive

Provide users with unrestricted access while preventing permanent configuration changes.

Reduce IT Tickets by 63%

Deep Freeze ensures 100% workstation recovery with every restart. Customers report an average reduction of 63% in IT tickets.

Increase Productivity

Reduced computer downtime means increased IT productivity.

Prevent Configuration Drift

Prevent computers from straying from their baseline configurations while still allowing users to save their work.

Empower End Users

Minimize reliance on IT staff for trivial issues, allowing them to focus on more important tasks.

Extend the Life of Your Computers

Eliminate degradation issues which lead to computers slowing down over time.


Protection Against Phishing

Products used to combat different forms of malware — anti-spyware, antivirus, and adware programs require management and maintenance. Deep Freeze, however, preserves your computer configuration without taking up any of your IT staff’s time. Any changes – either malicious or intentional- are reversed on reboot, thereby protecting computers from threats such as phishing.


Zero-day Threats

Zero day threats exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities and can be near impossible to detect with an antivirus solution. Deep Freeze provides simple, yet effective protection against zero-day threats as a reboot would clear out any malicious software, including zero-day threats.


Eliminate Lock Down Defense

Locking down computers in order to secure them limits the user experience, while a reactionary security maintenance approach like rebuilding or reimaging computers is time consuming. On the other hand, Deep Freeze offers the ability to standardize workstation configurations, which are completely restored on restart, thereby eliminating all software related issues.


License Compliance

Your users may install unlicensed or unauthorized software. By using Deep Freeze, unlicensed or unauthorized software can be removed with a single reboot, helping your organization achieve license compliance.


Completely Non-Restrictive

The non-restrictive, reboot-to-restore concept involves technology that allows users unrestricted, available, and perfectly functioning computers, whose desired configuration is always restored upon reboot. Therefore, IT staff does not need to spend valuable time rebuilding or re-imaging machines.


Reduce IT Tickets by 63%

Our system restore software ensures 100% workstation recovery with every restart, so you can watch that mountain of support tickets shrink. Customers report an average reduction of 63%. You can also forget about accidental configuration changes, malicious software, and operating system degradation.


Increase Productivity

Computer downtime means reduced productivity and increased help desk calls. Deep Freeze guarantees that expensive computer assets are kept running at 100% ensuring uptime and productivity while drastically reducing support costs. At the same time, user data can be stored safely on a network drive or in a ThawSpace to be retained across reboots.


Empower End Users

With the simplified and effective Reboot-to-Restore concept of Deep Freeze, each user becomes self-reliant in fixing their computer. Without having to raise IT support tickets, the user can simply restart the computer when any unexpected changes have occurred and Deep Freeze will wipeout all the changes and put the computer back into its original state, as it was configured.


Prevent Configuration Drift

By restoring computers to their initial desired state with a single reboot, Faronics Deep Freeze prevents computers from straying from their baseline configurations. However, users can carry on working as usual and still save their documents, media and data.


Extend the Life of Your Computers

By restoring computers to a pristine desired configuration upon reboot, Deep Freeze eliminates degradation issues which lead to computers slowing down over time. This means a longer life for your computers and a reduction in costs associated with upgrading them.
