Seamless Aviation Operations

SkyWest needed a solution that could help them manage 700 computers remotely and perform maintenance easily. With Deep Freeze, their aircraft maintenance personnel could themselves fix malware or accidental misconfigurations with a quick reboot. In addition, their IT staff could remotely carry out configuration changes when required from the Deep Freeze Enterprise Console.

“The IT staff used to travel at the drop of a hat when something broke at remote sites, now they don't have to do that. With Deep Freeze, we are able to centrally manage all our IT assets.”

Michael Howes

Bringing Computers to the Community

Philadelphia FIGHT (FIGHT) is a non-profit organization designed to improve the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS. Its Critical Path Project to provide digital literacy in the most vulnerable neighborhoods has a very small Information Technology staff to manage all the machines across all their centers. A high volume of support tickets across their centers would simply be unmanageable for a team of this size. Faronics Deep Freeze helped to provide the community of Philadelphia with a positive computing experience, free from malware, configuration changes, and computer downtime, with minimal support staff.

“I can’t imagine a public computer center or public library not running Faronics Deep Freeze & WINSelect.”

Averting Student Mischief

La Mesa-Spring Valley School District was constantly battling student mischievousness. With only six staff members, this meant a computer could be out of commission for up to three weeks. Thanks to installing Deep Freeze on both Macs and PCs, they saw an immediate 95% reduction of Mac support tickets! Impressed by the continuous enhancements and responsiveness, they are excited to continue using this simple solution that has given them their time back.

“Tey like to change things just because they can,whether that means taking items of the Dock, moving files to different locations or changing the toolbar in an application like Word. Tis would, of course, screw up the machine for the next person or even for the same person coming back to that machine later.”

Support Technician, La Mesa-Spring Valley

Endpoint Security Gives Piece of Mind

City Inn know their ability to deliver elite service is heavily dependent on the integrity and reliability of their computing technology. Whether it’s deployed in customer facing, administrative, in-room, or business center environments, guests expect hospitality providers to deliver a stress-free experience from start to finish.

“Faronics Deep Freeze was recommended strongly by Apple, and since it is hard to find a solution like this for a Mac, we quickly jumped on the opportunity to purchase it.”

Pemberton
Head of Information Technology for City Inn

Keeping Your Money Safe

Freedom First’s IT department was searching for ways to minimize the lost IT and employee productivity that occurred when their endpoint computers were compromised. They had no way to determine that a machine was compromised until after the problem occurred and required troubleshooting. PCs that did require a rebuild were often unavailable for several hours and required reimaging. Since Deep Freeze was implemented, IT simply reboots the workstations every evening to eradicate any possible issues.

"Deep Freeze has really simplified our lives. Now, there are two choices for each malfunctioning workstation: it’s a hardware problem, or we simply need to reboot."

Jeff Morehart
