Faronics’ Intelligent Utility puts Intel Macs in the Deep Freeze

SAN RAMON, CA, February 22, 2006 — On the heels of the release of the new Intel-based Macs, Faronics has released a version of Deep Freeze Mac with ARD integration to support the new platform. Faronics Deep Freeze software has supported Macintosh platforms since May of 2003. Faronics has taken the core functionality and the most useful features from the Windows versions of Deep Freeze and has delivered them in the unique and familiar Macintosh style. The new version of Deep Freeze Mac provides the guaranteed bulletproof protection for both Mac platforms that Faronics has become known for.

“Faronics is 100% committed to ensuring that Deep Freeze Mac and all of our future Macintosh products are native to the new Intel Mac platform,” said Brent Smithurst, VP of Technical Operations at Faronics. “We wish Apple the greatest success and look forward to further growth of the Mac.”

Deep Freeze Mac with ARD Integration provides a completely non-restrictive working environment where there is no need to be concerned about system misconfiguration, or malicious damage to a Mac OS X system; a simple restart eradicates all changes and ensures that the standard system configuration is available at all times. All changes to a machine are temporary for that working session, including installation of new software, removal of programs, and application preference configuration. The need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image, or troubleshoot computers is eliminated, resulting in a reduction in IT expenditures and an increase in computer uptime.
