Deep Freeze: Patented Restore on Reboot Technology

Deep Freeze by Faronics is the leading software solution for the maintenance and management of multi-user and public computing environments. The restore on reboot mechanism forms the core functionality of this solution. Deep Freeze enables the IT administrators to preserve a clean system configuration as the preferred baseline and prevent it from all types of unwanted changes. By keeping the desired state of the device intact, Deep Freeze allows IT personnel to just reboot and restore the pristine configuration every time a device malfunctions. The magic lies in the non-restrictive nature of the restore on reboot functionality which eliminates the need to lock down computers. With Deep Freeze at their disposal, IT professionals can provide unrestricted computer access with confidence and enhance end-users’ experience without worrying about recurring system issues and configurational drifts.

Secure and Instantly Recover your Computers with Deep Freeze

Configuration Preservation Leveraging the restore on reboot technology, Deep Freeze functions at the kernel level to prevent the MBR (Master Boot Record) from rootkit injections and other malicious alterations. By installing this reboot and restore software, users can preserve their desired system configuration as the baseline and update it as and when required. Once the software is activated, all the inputs generated during a live session are redirected to a temporary space instead of inducing any permanent changes to the system configuration. Every time the computer is rebooted, the temporary space is discarded along with the user-induced changes and the pristine baseline configuration is restored. To make any permanent changes to the preserved state, users who have the administrative access need to disable Deep Freeze, implement the desired changes, and enable it again. This will update the earlier preserved configuration and establish a new baseline state. When the restore on reboot functionality of Deep Freeze is active, unauthorized changes made by users like modifying system settings or downloading and installing programs, cookies, corrupt files, or any other unwanted elements do not have a permanent effect on the baseline configuration. Most importantly, even changes made by malicious threats like ransomware, malware, viruses, and even zero-day threats are discarded upon rebooting the computer. In this way, a reboot restore solution like Deep Freeze makes the computer virtually indestructible.

Instantaneous Restoration The restore on reboot mechanism of Deep Freeze minimizes system downtime by restoring the pristine configuration instantly with just a restart. This instant rollback capability is very effective to maximize system availability in multi-user and public computing environments. As most of the technical issues can be fixed by simply rebooting the device, users do not have to rely on IT support for every trivial issue. This reduces the amount of IT support requests and boosts the productivity of IT professionals. They get more time to focus on critical tasks instead of being bogged down by loads of manual troubleshooting requests every day. Restore on reboot technology keeps the pristine system configuration protected from all types of changes and inputs. It does not, however, prevent users from performing any action nor does it check malware from entering the device during a live session. So, while the original configuration remains intact, these unwanted elements may lead to temporary disturbances. However, in contrast to the traditional troubleshooting techniques or inbuilt programs that can take hours, restore on reboot technology resolves all types of software issues instantly once the system is restarted.
