Faronics Deep Freeze Enterprise Announced As A Winner Of The 30th Annual Awards Of Excellence By Tech & Learning For Best Upgraded Product

VANCOUVER, B.C. and SAN RAMON, Calif. December, 2012 – Faronics, a global leader in simplifying, securing and managing multi-user computer environments, today announced that its instant system-restore solution, Faronics Deep Freeze Enterprise, has been selected as a winner of Tech & Learning’s 30th Annual Awards of Excellence for “Best Upgraded Products”.

Tech & Learning’s “Best Upgrade” category honors already-released products that have been significantly enhanced to evolve with changing technology and continue to offer the highest quality experiences for educators and students.

Deep Freeze Enterprise facilitates the smooth maintenance of multi-user education environments because it protects original workstation configurations by restoring the computer settings to their original condition with a simple reboot. Deep Freeze eliminates the need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image or troubleshoot computers. The resulting protection significantly reduces software related issues and system crashes, allowing IT professionals to efficiently manage their environment using less staff and resources.

“As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution for your district needs is more important than ever,” says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media’s Tech & Learning Group. “Tech & Learning is proud to present these recommended products that have been put to the test by our experienced educational team of judges.”

The December 2012 Awards Issue of Tech & Learning will provide detailed descriptions of all the winning products as well as judges’ comments.

[Webinar] Managing Insider Threats: 4 Risks You Need to Mitigate

Managing Insider ThreatsEvent Date: Thursday, November 3rd at 10am PT / 1pm ET

Organizations are investing in IT security solutions to protect their networks. CIOs are creating organization-wide policies to protect workstations and company data alike. And within these policies lies a usage component for acceptable employee behaviors. It’s always a struggle to strike a balance between flexibility and security. But how are you enforcing employee policies?

Internal threats are hitting the top charts of IT security worries. We’re no longer talking about disgruntled employees with a vendetta, but human error.

Anti-virus alone will not protect your business from poisoned links, malware laced downloads, and social media scams.
