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.”

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.

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
Network Technician

Facilitating Learning Everywhere

Ballston Spa Central School District was facing a plethora of IT infrastructure issues - system errors, blue screens of death and busted DVD drives. Staff would rebuild and reimage computers weekly and their anti-virus efforts came with a price to network and system performance. Faronics Deep Freeze gave Ballston Spa Central School District an alternative to computer imaging that worked seamlessly with a network-efficient anti-virus solution.

“Faronics Anti-Virus and Deep Freeze have simplifed our job and allowed us to focus on other critical projects.”
