Deep Freeze: Reboot to restore software
  • Retain data across reboots by mapping entire accounts or selected user and application data to an unprotected partition or drive called a ThawSpace. With no limit on the size or number of ThawSpaces, you can create as many as you need while still enjoying total system protection. It’s the perfect balance of control and flexibility.
  • Schedule Apple Updates during maintenance periods with Deep Freeze Mac’s maintenance mode. Just set it and forget it. Now you can relax knowing that machines are up-to-date and secure.
  • Central management makes it easy to deploy and manage Faronics Deep Freeze. Using the built-in (and free) Deep Freeze Remote console, you can start managing Deep Freeze right away. Linked directly with the Apple Remote Desktop, it’s intuitive and incredibly easy to use. It’s never been faster to send commands like wake, shut down, Freeze or Thaw.
