Deep Freeze


Your computer, like new with every restart...

Absolute System Integrity

Faronics Deep Freeze reduces IT helpdesk requests and costs by 63% by making computer configurations indestructible. It does this by ensuring each and every desktop, laptop, and server always remains in its perfect, original operating state that it was deployed in. Organizations enjoy greater computer reliability with lowered support costs, while IT personnel are freed from tedious helpdesk requests. In fact, organizations that deploy Deep Freeze experience a dramatic increase in the number of users and workstations supported by each IT technician. Deep Freeze's disk protection still allows users to save their documents, spreadsheets, and other data to Thawed (unprotected) drives and partitions.
