Faronics launches Deep Freeze Mac 4.5 for Mac users

To protect a workstation's operating system and software without restricting user access

By CBR Staff Writer

Faronics has unveiled Deep Freeze Mac 4.5, which comes with the release of Apple’s latest operating system, Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. According to the company, Deep Freeze Mac offers Mac protection and eliminates the need for IT professionals to perform rebuilds, re-image, or troubleshoot computers.

The company said that IT administrators are able to map user accounts individually or by user type to an unprotected partition to retain user documents, pictures, movies, bookmarks and other data between protected sessions.

Deep Freeze Mac has the ability to protect a workstation’s operating system and software without restricting user access. Mac users who are protected by Deep Freeze’s patented technology are able to get consistent Mac session every time, the company claims.

Brent Smithurst, vice president of technical operations for Faronics, said: The Macintosh market is a key part of our business strategy because a significant percentage of our customers in media, retail, healthcare, hospitality and education have mixed Mac/Windows or Mac-only environments. We supported Leopard immediately when it shipped and I’m proud we are able to do the same with Snow Leopard support.
