We’ve added some interesting enhancements to Deep Freeze Cloud recently and we wanted to make sure you are aware of these updates.
1. Smarter Cloud Agent Updates
We overhauled our Cloud Agent with the release of version 2.0 in March so that the customer does not have to manually upgrade the agent for minor enhancements and bug fixes. Cloud Agent “modules” can now update automatically in the background and address some significant issues without ever hassling the customer to upgrade the agent.
2. Deployment and Download Speed Boosts
We made several big enhancements to the way our installers are created and deployed from the cloud. In short, the Deep Freeze download speeds are significantly faster and so are the rest of the installers as they are now hosted in an independent repository.
3. Inherit Settings from Faronics Default Policy
Policies can now be configured to inherit settings from the Faronics Default policy to quickly distribute your setting changes across multiple policies. Settings can be inherited individually per service and for the Maintenance Period.
The old Enable Service checkbox is replaced with a drop-down menu for each service.
4. Power Save Policy Configuration Report
Due to popular demand, this Faronics Core Console report has been brought into Cloud as well. The report summarizes all the Power Save Schedule settings along with the associated Power Events.
5. Support for macOS Sierra 10.12 for Deep Freeze Mac
