SAN RAMON, CA, August 28, 2009 — Faronics is excited to announce the immediate availability of Deep Freeze Mac 4.5. This coincides with the release of Apple’s latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. The concurrent launch of Deep Freeze Mac 4.5 demonstrates Faronics’ commitment to delivering bulletproof workstation protection while reducing computer support costs.
Deep Freeze Mac offers the most robust Mac protection available and eliminates the need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image, or troubleshoot computers. IT administrators are able to map user accounts individually or by user type to an unprotected partition or a Thawspace to retain user documents, pictures, movies, bookmarks and other data between protected sessions.
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 patented technology are able to enjoy a clean and consistent Mac session—each and every time. IT administrators love that Mac environments are easier to manage and expensive computer assets are kept running at 100% capacity.
“The Macintosh market is a key part of our business strategy because a significant percentage of our customers in media, retail, healthcare, hospitality and education have mixed Mac/Windows or Mac-only environments,” said Brent Smithurst, Vice President of Technical Operations for Faronics. “We supported Leopard immediately when it shipped and I’m proud we are able to do the same with Snow Leopard support.”
A free, fully functional 30-day evaluation version of Deep Freeze Mac can be downloaded at www.faronics.com. Deep Freeze Mac offers a wide range of enterprise capabilities via its seamless integration with Apple Remote Desktop.
