Our system restore software ensures 100% workstation recovery with every restart, so you can watch that mountain of support tickets shrink. Customers report an average reduction of 63%. You can also forget about accidental configuration changes, malicious software, and operating system degradation.
Mac downtime means reduced productivity and increased help desk calls. Deep Freeze guarantees that expensive Macs are kept running at 100% ensuring uptime and productivity while drastically reducing support costs. At the same time, user data can be stored safely on a network drive or in a ThawSpace to be retained across reboots.
Products used to combat different forms of malware — anti-spyware, antivirus, and adware programs require management and maintenance. Deep Freeze, however, preserves your Mac configuration without taking up any of your IT staff’s time. Any changes – either malicious or intentional- are reversed on reboot, thereby protecting Macs from threats such as phishing.
The non-restrictive, reboot-to-restore concept involves technology that allows users unrestricted, available, and perfectly functioning Macs, whose desired configuration is always restored upon reboot. Therefore, IT staff does not need to spend valuable time rebuilding or re-imaging machines.
With the simplified and effective Reboot-to-Restore concept of Deep Freeze, each user becomes self-reliant in fixing their Mac. Without having to raise IT support tickets, the user can simply restart the Mac when any unexpected changes have occurred and Deep Freeze will wipeout all the changes and put the Mac back into its original state, as it was configured.
Locking down Macs in order to secure them limits the user experience, while a reactionary security maintenance approach like rebuilding or reimaging Macs is time consuming. On the other hand, Deep Freeze offers the ability to standardize workstation configurations, which are completely restored on restart, thereby eliminating all software related issues.
By restoring Macs to their initial desired state with a single reboot, Faronics Deep Freeze prevents Macs from straying from their baseline configurations. However, users can carry on working as usual and still save their documents, media and data.
By restoring Macs to a pristine desired configuration upon reboot, Deep Freeze eliminates degradation issues which lead to Macs slowing down over time. This means a longer life for your Macs and a reduction in costs associated with upgrading them.
Zero day threats exploit previously unknown vulnerabilities and can be near impossible to detect with an antivirus solution. Deep Freeze provides simple, yet effective protection against zero-day threats as a reboot would clear out any malicious software, including zero-day threats.
Your users may install unlicensed or unauthorized software. By using Deep Freeze, unlicensed or unauthorized software can be removed with a single reboot, helping your organization achieve license compliance.

Head of Information Technology for City Inn
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."
