Faronics Press Room

VANCOUVER, B.C. and SAN RAMON, Calif. December, 2012 – Faronics, a global leader in simplifying, securing and managing multi-user computer environments, today announced that its instant system-restore solution, Faronics Deep Freeze Enterprise, has been selected as a winner of Tech & Learning’s 30th Annual Awards of Excellence for “Best Upgraded Products”.

Tech & Learning’s “Best Upgrade” category honors already-released products that have been significantly enhanced to evolve with changing technology and continue to offer the highest quality experiences for educators and students.

Deep Freeze Enterprise facilitates the smooth maintenance of multi-user education environments because it protects original workstation configurations by restoring the computer settings to their original condition with a simple reboot. Deep Freeze eliminates the need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image or troubleshoot computers. The resulting protection significantly reduces software related issues and system crashes, allowing IT professionals to efficiently manage their environment using less staff and resources.

“As schools continue to have to do more with less, buying the right solution for your district needs is more important than ever,” says Kevin Hogan, Editorial Director for NewBay Media’s Tech & Learning Group. “Tech & Learning is proud to present these recommended products that have been put to the test by our experienced educational team of judges.”

The December 2012 Awards Issue of Tech & Learning will provide detailed descriptions of all the winning products as well as judges’ comments.
