SAN RAMON, CA, February 6, 2007 — Faronics kicked off this year’s RSA Conference 2007 by announcing that Sunbelt Software will be leveraging the strength of Faronics Deep Freeze to protect their CWSandbox automated malware analysis suite. This technological alliance represents another case in point of how Faronics products are being used to advance the efficiency and productivity of the information security industry.
Deep Freeze provides absolute system integrity to workstations by restoring software configurations to a predetermined state, each and every time, down to the last byte. By applying Deep Freeze protection to a clean CWSandbox environment, information security researchers are guaranteed a fresh, standardized sandbox session, with each and every restart. Since Deep Freeze’s ‘reboot-torestore’ process does not increase bootup times whatsoever, it triumphs over competing system restoration technologies, which require both user initiation and system downtime. For Sunbelt Software, Faronics Deep Freeze was the clear choice.
“By ensuring CWSandbox users a consistent working environment, they will in turn be able to carry out their malware research more effectively, which ultimately will benefit the entire computing industry, Faronics customers included,” said Brent Smithurst, Vice President of Technical Operations for Faronics. “It’s a perfect example of a symbiotic relationship.”
“We count some of the largest telecom and IT security enterprises globally as CWSandbox customers. They rely on our technology as a core component of their internet threat defense strategy, and Faronics Deep Freeze is an important part of the overall solution.” said Chad Loeven, Vice President of Business Development for Sunbelt Software.
A fully functional, 60-day evaluation version of Deep Freeze can be downloaded free of charge at www.faronics.com for both the Windows and Mac platform. CWSandbox is available from Sunbelt Software at www.sunbeltsoftware.com.
Faronics develops and markets intelligent utilities for absolute control of multi-user computing environments. Faronics’ market-leading solutions ensure 100% workstation availability and have dramatically impacted the day-to-day lives of thousands of information technology professionals and computing lab managers. Our user-driven, powerful technology innovations benefit educational institutions, libraries, government organizations and corporations.
