Overview:

Standardized user environments are critical for organizations that want to reduce IT support costs and workload. Faronics WINSelect provides a quick, flexible, and scalable way to configure the functionality and feature set of any Windows computer to conform to an organization's requirements. WINSelect also complements, manages, extends, and often replaces Group Policy Objects (GPO).

  • Standardizes User Environments - Allows the creation of a typical configuration for various usage scenarios such as public kiosks, library computers and learning environments.
  • Easy To Use - Intuitive interface to configure users’ Windows environments while eliminating the need to devote time to learn and use group policies.
  • Controls User Experience - Provides the ability to control various aspects of the user experience and prevent unauthorized actions.
  • Secures Workstations - Makes workstations secure by providing the ability to disable or prevent saving data to USB drives, disk drives, network and web-based storage.
  • Minimizes IT Intervention - Provides only the intended Windows functionality to end users, thereby reducing issues caused by tampering with system settings.
  • Manage with a Central Console - Management, deployment and configuration are made possible via a single web-based or on-premise console.

How It Helps

If you don’t need central management capabilities or only have a handful of machines that you need to lock down, try WINSelect Standard.

Sometimes end users can get into trouble unintentionally – creating more IT support tickets. Trying to implement acceptable use policies can be practically impossible and that’s where the danger lies. But here’s an easy solution. Faronics WINSelect helps you to lockdown computers easily and quickly. It’s a synch to create the right settings for your enterprise. Now you can control everything from web browsing restrictions, Microsoft Office functionality, and even set timing restrictions.

When you’re working in a public access environment, it’s really handy to be able to restrict saving, printing, and which applications can run. Faronics WINSelect even let’s you create session timers so that everyone gets a turn. It also let’s you restrict control panels, desktop icons, and even the start button functionality. And when it comes to safeguarding trusted information and customer lists, you can disable USB ports and disk drives to stop information from walking out the door.

It’s great for kiosk environments too where you can automatically launch specified applications upon start-up and restrict everything else. The best part is that it’s just one click! With Faronics WINSelect you can eliminate those pesky troubleshooting emergencies to fix machines gone awry. This helps you to look like an IT superstar because machines are always available and working as intended, while you can reclaim your time and focus on other strategic projects. sic for Applications and prevent access to VBA through Microsoft Office
