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.

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

Faronics Deep Freeze comes with a set of powerful features that prove immensely useful for IT administrators looking to secure their systems and keep them running smoothly, without any restrictions.
How Deep Freeze Works

When Deep Freeze is in a Frozen state, any changes made to the computer are reversed
on a reboot each time! When Deep Freeze is in a Thawed state, changes made to the
computer, such as installing a new program or system updates are retained even after
a reboot. Deep Freeze must be in a Frozen state for it to be protected.


Security and Control
Enhanced security is rolled into Faronics Deep Freeze with protection for the Master Boot Record (MBR) from rootkit injections, making your security bulletproof.
  • Secure the Master Boot Record (MBR)
  • Prevent unauthorized administrators from accessing or controlling a computer that runs Deep Freeze via a password.
  • Set a password to be used on a workstation or via the Command Line Control.
  • Disable keyboard and mouse, including touchscreen devices, during Thawed Periods or on demand
  • Boot Control window provides the ability for immediate reboot
  • Use Stealth Mode to hide the Deep Freeze system tray icon

Data Retention Options
With Deep Freeze installed, data can be retained across reboots by redirecting both user and application data to storage space on non-system or network drives.
  • Retain data across multiple reboots by redirecting user and application data to a Thawed drive.
  • Use ThawSpaces to store programs, save files, or make permanent changes
  • Specify the size of the ThawSpace and host drive
  • Cache Windows updates by downloading updates even when in Frozen state
  • Redirect data for storage on network drives with the Data Igloo

Deployment and Interoperability Options
Easy deployment of Faronics Deep Freeze is made possible with several options.
  • Easy deployment options including a silent install for rapid network deployment, deployment as part of your imaging solution
  • Provides option to deploy on multiple workstations as part of a master image

Absolute Protection
Faronics Deep Freeze provides comprehensive protection for IT systems.
  • Guarantees 100% workstation recovery upon restart
  • Provides password protection and complete security
  • Protects multiple hard drives and partitions

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 simplified our job and allowed us to focus on other critical projects.”
