SAN RAMON, CA, April 17, 2007 — Faronics recognizes that recent media events have highlighted the dangers and liabilities of unwanted spyware in a classroom environment. Educational administrators, technology coordinators, and teachers realize the growing need to protect their computing environments from malicious programs that can infect and redirect computers to websites with inappropriate content.
Faronics Anti-Executable protects workstations from unwanted software, including spyware, malware and adware, by preventing unauthorized executables from running. Anti-Executable ensures classroom integrity by scanning the entire workstation hard drive and creating a whitelist of all programs and utilities that are authorized for use, thereby preventing applications that are not on the list from executing or installing. Using Anti-Executable ensures schools that their students and teachers have the productivity tools required for the educational experience, but are protected from classroom distractions, such as chat programs and games, and Internet dangers, such as spyware, malware, and adware. Advanced features include the ability to shutdown or restart individual or multiple computers, and centralized control over workstation protection settings.
“Faronics is always pleased to play a part in ensuring a safe and trouble-free computing experience for our users,” said Guillermo Tellez, Product Manager for Anti-Executable at Faronics. “The need for protection from malicious software is greater than ever, especially when the end user turns out to be children.”
A fully functional, 30-day evaluation version of Anti-Executable can be downloaded free of charge at www.faronics.com. Available for the Windows environment in both Standard and Enterprise editions, Anti-Executable works hand-in-hand with Deep Freeze, Faronics’ flagship system integrity software.
Faronics delivers market-leading solutions that help manage, simplify, and secure complex IT environments. Our products ensure 100% workstation availability, and have dramatically impacted the day-to-day lives of thousands of information technology professionals. Fueled by a customercentric focus, Faronics’ technology innovations benefit educational institutions, healthcare facilities, libraries, government organizations and corporations.
