SAN RAMON, CA, October 24, 2007 — In anticipation of the imminent release of Apple’s latest
operating system, Faronics is pleased to announce that a new version of its flagship Deep Freeze
Mac security software is now available. Version 4.0 of Deep Freeze Mac offers several product
improvements, support for Leopard, multiple Maintenance schedules, and the highly-anticipated
Integrated Mapping feature.
Deep Freeze Mac with ARD Integration offers the most robust Mac protection available. The need
for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image, or troubleshoot computers is eliminated with
Deep Freeze Mac’s reboot-to-restore technology. The showcase feature in the new Deep Freeze Mac
4.0 is Integrated Mapping, which makes saving user data while still protecting the system software
simple. IT administrators are able to map user accounts individually or by user type to a second
partition or Thawspace to retain user documents, pictures, movies, music, and bookmarks.
IT administrators of large Mac deployments are already familiar with Deep Freeze Mac’s ability to
protect a workstation’s operating system and software without restricting user access. Mac users who
are protected by Deep Freeze’s ‘reboot-to-restore’ concept are able to enjoy a clean and consistent
Mac session—each and every time. IT administrators love the fact that Mac environments are
easier to manage and expensive computer assets are kept running at 100% capacity. Unlike imaging
technology, Deep Freeze Mac’s ‘reboot-to-restore’ process does not increase bootup times or impact
system resources whatsoever.
“I’m proud of the fact that Deep Freeze Mac provides full support for Mac OS X Leopard even before
Apple has released their new operating system,” said Brent Smithurst, Vice President of Technical
Operations for Faronics. “Deep Freeze Mac is the leader in Mac workstation protection; the fact that
we are the first to deliver total workstation consistency to Leopard is proof of that.”
A free, fully functional 30-day evaluation version of Deep Freeze Mac can be downloaded at
www.faronics.com. Deep Freeze Mac also offers enterprise capabilities via its integration with Apple
Faronics delivers software products that manage, simplify, and secure IT environments. Our
