Faronics Deep Freezes Apple's Big Cats
Protection for Several Mac OS X Versions Announced
May. 30, 2005 10:00 PM
Faronics, based in San Ramon, CA, has pronounced itself "happy " to announce that Deep Freeze Mac OS X Version 1.8. This version is compatible with both Tiger (OS X 10.4) and
Panther (OS X 10.3). A new user guide, brochure, evaluation version, and full
shipping version are all available on Faronics' Web site at www.faronics.com.
Customers using Jaguar (OS X 10.2) still have the ability to use Deep Freeze Mac
OS X version 1.7, also available on the Faronics Web site.
"Due to some fairly major core changes that Apple made to Tiger, this release
took a few extra weeks to prepare and test," said Brent Smithurst, Vice
President of Technical Operations at Faronics. "I'm confident that the wait will
be worth it for all of our Tiger users."
Deep Freeze Mac OS X provides non-restrictive protection that allows a
standard (nonadministrator) user to make changes in their home directory, but
restores the entire directory to its exact original configuration after a
logout, restart, selected time interval, or on a selected day of the week. Any
changes made by a user are temporary, including changes to the desktop, Library,
fonts, Dock, or screen settings.
Restrictive protection options let users specify read, write, and execute
privileges on-the-fly and on a per-user basis for any file, folder, application,
or system preference pane, no matter where it resides on the hard drive.
