Deep Freeze costs

The education sector can reduce IT costs and increase productivity with Faronics Deep Freeze from ITS

Research from Gartner Inc found that the average help desk cost per contact was £14.75 and that a well managed desktop PC can be 42% less expensive to keep than an unmanaged one. By installing Faronics Deep Freeze on your Windows and Mac machines the hard work of daily repairs is eradicated and IT support tickets can be reduced by up to 63% allowing IT staff to concentrate on other duties that can often be neglected when computers are reported as faulty. 

Since 1999 Faronics Deep Freeze has helped thousands of IT professionals in the education sector make their PCs indestructible by freezing their desired configurations and preventing unwanted user changes such as altered settings or downloaded programs from sticking. By restarting the computer all systems are returned to the desired state ensuring 100% availability of your workstations. With a simple reboot the system integrity is maintained and your machines run smoothly and efficiently. The end result is higher computer uptime, significant cost savings and accelerated user productivity.

Faronics Deep Freeze provides Windows and Mac systems with immunity from many of the problems that plague computers today such as malicious software activity, system degradation or configuration drift and makes your chosen computer configurations indestructible. Once Deep Freeze is installed any changes made, regardless of whether they are accidental or malicious are automatically removed with every reboot, even when users have full access to system software and settings. 

There is no need to reimage or restore machines from back-ups or lock them down and there is no detrimental effect on the end user experience. Users can carry on using them as they normally would and all of their work can be stored safely on a network drive or in a virtual storage drive called a ThawSpace that you allocate to be retained across reboots.
