Faronics, a company engaged in software products that manage, simplify, and secure IT environments, has released WINSelect 7.0, a software utility that delivers full control over computer system settings.
WINSelect 7.0 empowers IT administrators with the ability to easily customize a computer’s capabilities by restricting user access to certain applications, websites, program functions, and menu options – all without any required knowledge of complex group policies.
WINSelect 7.0 features numerous enhancements that make it easy to manage the functionality of computers in a public access, kiosk, or library environment. New features include Kiosk Mode, Session Timers, and Printer Restrictions, making it easy for IT administrators to instantly turn a computer into a full-fledged secure kiosk, limit the length of each user session, and restrict user access to printers and print quantities. Also, exclusive to WINSelect, IT administrators can now customize the menu options in all Microsoft Office applications.
Brent Smithurst, vice president of technical operations at Faronics, said: Anyone who has dealt with complicated Group Policies to customize a computer instantly sees the benefits of WINSelect, its greatest strength is that it provides the flexibility to customize a computer based on needs – whether that’s the needs of the organization, computing environment, IT department, or user.
