Faronics is proud to announce that a new version of Deep Freeze is now available—just in time to showcase to attendees of NECC 2009 and to mark the 10th birthday of Deep Freeze! Over the years Faronics’ flagship system consistency software has gained a number of innovative features that have enhanced the bulletproof reboot-to-restore protection it has offered since day one. Ten years later, Deep Freeze is deployed on eight million computers and continues to help organizations do more with less by maximizing the value of their existing IT investment.
Newly released Deep Freeze v6.5 introduces several exciting features such as the ability to create multiple spaces where data can be retained over restarts. These spaces—known as ThawSpaces—can be optionally hidden to deter end-user access and tampering. A new events scheduler now provides greater flexibility in scheduling software updates, while the Enterprise Console can now remotely deploy, execute, and control software on workstations. Faronics is also happy to announce that the highly requested ability to display customizable warning messages prior to workstation maintenance events has also been added. Users can optionally be allowed to cancel any events to prevent their computing session from being disrupted.
