Faronics Releases Deep Freeze 8.5 Version to Restore Windows 10 with Single Reboot

Faronics announced the release of Deep Freeze Enterprise 8.5. This latest version comes with multiple additional features and enhancements to help system administrators effectively protect and restore Windows 10 computers. Deep Freeze is the product of Faronics, which is widely used by organizations to preserve and protect system configurations. This Reboot to Restore solution is consistent, easy to use and provides 100% workstation availability with each reboot. By making endpoints virtually indestructible, Deep Freeze enhances system performance and life cycle, and significantly reduces IT support costs. In its constant attempt to provide quality service to Windows users, Faronics launched Deep Freeze Enterprise version 8.30 to extend support of this instant system restore solution to Windows 10 operating systems. This previous Deep Freeze version allowed system administrators to restore Windows 10 -based workstations to a pristine state and leverage various other customizable configuration and deployment options. To better address the ever-evolving needs of diverse IT environments, the company has added several new features and enhancements in Deep Freeze Enterprise 8.5, to make the job of restoring Windows 10 computers easier and hassle-free. As a result, system administrators are able to monitor applications on systems running Windows 10 OS with better efficiency. The newly added system restore features for Windows 10 ensures that enterprises already holding Deep Freeze licenses are able to incorporate Microsoft's latest OS offerings into their environment while harnessing multiple new benefits of the latest version. The key benefits of the new version include the following: Ability to add or delete ThawSpaces on the fly: The earlier versions of Deep freeze did not allow the addition of ThawSpaces unless the software was re-installed. Deep Freeze 8.5 eliminates the need of Deep Freeze re-installation, providing system administrators with the ability to configure ThawSpaces at any time, which are added on the next Thawed Restart. Idle Task Enhancement: Customers have raised requests for a function that would shut down an idle Windows 10 computer without having to wait for the first mouse/keyboard activity. Otherwise, it may so happen that a computer remains active the entire day. The latest version allows users to choose whether to restart/shutdown a workstation in its idle state and specify a time period for it. Not only that, this new offering also allows system administrators to initiate the countdown of the chosen actions only after the first keyboard/mouse activity. Addition of Combination Scheduler Task: System administrators prefer to chain particular scheduled tasks like 'Wake-On-LAN', 'Send Message', 'Run Windows Update' and, perform 'Shutdown' activity. Keeping their convenience in mind, the company has added a new combination task, in which administrators can create a single Scheduler task and chain up to five tasks together. It eliminates the need to change multiple tasks during an unexpected event. Upgrade Notification Alert: Administrators managing Windows 10 computers would also receive upgrade notifications in their console whenever a new version of Deep Freeze is available.

Faronics Announces Anti-Executable Security Suite Solution

Faronics Corporation announced its new Anti-Executable Security Suite solution. The Anti-Executable Security Suite addresses the need for enterprises to deploy and continuously update a layered defense infrastructure against both internal and external threats. Anti-Executable Security Suite arms enterprises with the ability to aggressively and proactively protect critical data assets against cyber threats that are becoming increasingly frequent and sophisticated. Anti-Executable Security Suite protects the computer with multiple layers: Proactive Security Barrier - Anti-Executable only allows approved programs to go through and stops threats like targeted attacks, zero-day threats and mutated viruses. Anti-Ransomware measures include the ability to stop processes from trying to rename file extensions that are known to be set by ransomware exploits, stopping Ransomware before it starts encrypting the data. Active Antivirus Protection - antivirus stops all known malware, like viruses, worms, and Trojans if it somehow gets through the proactive barrier. The antivirus also includes advanced firewall protection. Restorative Remediation Measures - at its higher enforcement level, the platform comes built-in with a powerful patented reset mechanism. Just rebooting systems will destroy any malware and restore the systems to normal instantly. The solution offers enterprises several features: System-assisted Deployment - Automated whitelist creation for existing environments with applications already installed on computers. A three-phase Staged Deployment approach that gives IT and security teams the ability to deploy Anti-Executable Security Suite in an "audit" mode and build a custom control list. This enables teams to effectively deploy into active environments without requiring IT teams to re-image computers. Teams can build a Control List configuration from a "template" computer, allowing them to build a single system containing all the files to allow, and then apply that list to systems and prevent any other files from running. The system suggests when teams should switch deployments modes from low to high without affecting day-to-day operations. Advanced Granular Control - In addition to .exe, .scr, .jar, .bat, and .com extensions, IT teams can also monitor files like DLL, JAR, VB Scripts and PowerShell executables. Anti-Ransomware - A new Ransomware protection setting, which provides the ability to easily implement restrictions on an endpoint to help protect against threat vectors that fall outside of malicious applications, such as forcing pop-up blockers, disabling Windows Scripting Host, disabling VB Scripts. Real-time Alerts - Active alerting enables IT teams to define behaviors and thresholds that proactively notify the team if malicious or unwanted activity is taking place within the environment. Alerts are sent via push notification to the mobile app as well as through email and central console. Cloud Administration and Dashboarding - Offers granular control of policies applied. IT teams can retrieve and manipulate local Control List from the Cloud console. A dashboard containing widgets that provides visual information at a glance, shows trends and allows teams to make micro-modifications easily.
