Faronics Deep Freeze makes PCs indestructible. It protects endpoints by Freezing a snapshot of a workstation’s desired configuration and settings set by the IT Admin with an instant reboot, any unwelcome or unwanted changes are removed from the system, restoring it to its pristine Frozen state.
Deep Freeze comes with a set of powerful features useful for IT Admins looking to secure their systems and keep them running smoothly, without any restrictions.
Patented Reboot to Restore Technology
Reduce IT tickets by 63%
Empower End Users to Increase Productivity
Faronics Deep Freeze Enterprise makes PCs indestructible. It protects endpoints by Freezing the desired configuration set by the IT Admin. With a simple reboot, any unwelcome or unwanted changes are removed from the system, restoring it to the original state. Meanwhile, user data can be stored safely on a network drive or in a ThawSpace to be retained across reboots. This helps systems run smoothly and efficiently, while giving you more up-time and boosting user productivity. The built-in Enterprise Console or Core Console makes life even easier.
Using Deep Freeze’s central management capabilities, you can customize, deploy and manage Deep Freeze on your endpoints from one central location. Need to manage Windows Updates? Simply download them while Frozen and they’re automatically applied when machines are Thawed. Once the process is finished, they are automatically returned to their Frozen state.
Since our system restore software ensures 100% workstation recovery with every restart, you can watch that mountain of support tickets shrink. Customers report an average reduction of 63%. You can also forget about accidental configuration changes, malicious software, and operating system degradation. Now you and your IT staff can get more sleep, worry less, and maybe even leave the office on time once in a while.
Faronics Deep Freeze provides comprehensive protection for IT systems.
Enhanced security is rolled into Faronics Deep Freeze with protection to the Operating System along with the Master Boot Record (MBR) from rootkit injections, making your security bulletproof.
