Faronics Deep Freezes Apple's Big Cats
Protection for Several Mac OS X Versions Announced

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.
