Faronics Press Room

SAN RAMON, CA, August 3, 2006 — Faronics’ flagship product Deep Freeze has received the eSchool News Readers’ Choice Award as Best Desktop Security Software. There were separate categories for Windows and Mac operating systems. Deep Freeze took first place in both platforms by a significant margin.

eSchool News readers gave Deep Freeze high marks because of its power, flexibility, and nonrestrictive approach. It was a clear favorite for its proven ability to keep desktops secure, while noticeably decreasing the number of helpdesk calls after installation.

“We are thrilled that Deep Freeze was recognized by the eSchool News readers for its non-restrictive yet bulletproof protection,” said Brent Smithurst, Vice President of Technical Operations at Faronics. “Deep Freeze was designed as a perfect solution for education to benefit everyone from the IT staff to the teachers to the students.”

Deep Freeze protects and preserves baseline PC and Mac configurations. Regardless of the changes a user makes to a workstation, a reboot resets the computer to its original state — right down to the last byte. The result is a consistent and trouble-free computing environment with 100% workstation availability.
