We discovered that KACE customers are also Faronics Deep Freeze customers. In fact, some of our customers were trying to get Deep Freeze and the Dell KACE K1000 to work together in some smart ways. So we pulled together a team from Deep Freeze and KACE to determine how we can best build some integration between our products to provide some additional benefits and provide some relief to you hard working IT professionals.
For those of you who may not know about Deep Freeze, it provides the ultimate workstation protection by creating a “frozen” snapshot of a workstation’s configuration and settings. Deep Freeze is invaluable in institutions where both employees and students need full access to their workstations/laptops and need to have the confidence that their computers are up and running at all times.
Dell KACE customers who are looking to strengthen PC security and reduce technical support costs can use Faronics Deep Freeze to ensure that you will never again have to repair a computer damaged by a user’s accidental or malicious activity by including Deep Freeze as part of the Dell KACE K2000 imaging process. Any changes that a user makes to a protected machine will be eliminated upon reboot. The result is a computer that remains in the same perfect working condition it was setup in — days, months, and even years later! Another option is to use the K1000 to automatically “thaw” Deep Freeze computers and securely make changes REMOTELY from a central console such as updating software and performing critical patches and then have them now restart to the new “frozen” baseline.
This integration between the two companies provides enhanced security and lets you automate some of the time-consuming tasks that are necessary to keep systems safe.
