Faronics Deep Freeze & Faronics Insight and The McFarland School District
"It’s kind of a neat thing sitting in the back of a lab and seeing that you’re controlling all 30 of those computers at the same time, like a puppet master!”
- Aaron Folcik, Network Administrator
Challenges Faced

The major challenge faced by the IT team was that backdoor Trojans, viruses, malware and other cyber threats always found a way to sneak into the systems. The only way to fix the configuration drift was to manually reimage the systems which was a highly time consuming task. A challenge faced by the teachers was to restrict access to certain websites, as well as the ability to control multiple student computers at the same time.

A Solution That Worked

The IT team deployed Deep Freeze to solve the problem of configuration drift and to get rid of Trojans, viruses, malware and other cyber threats. They also deployed Faronics Insight for teachers to able to get a consolidated view of the entire classroom and see what each student was doing. Deep Freeze protected the computers and Faronics Insight helped manage students so both the IT administrators and the teachers were happy with the solution.
