PolicyPak for Condusiv Technologies Diskeeper

Many of your users don’t even know what defragging a hard drive even means, so you definitely don’t want them meddling with the application settings of Diskeeper.

So how you do ensure that the local drives that your users depend on get defragged regularly so that their machines run optimally? Whether it’s of a fragmented drive or incorrect application settings, you certainly don’t want a help desk call generated.

And that’s where PolicyPak comes in.

PolicyPak locks down and enforces the optimum setting values that you, the network administrator, want your users to have, as well as the ones you know they need. PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Keep your Diskeeper configuration settings enforced and streamlined with PolicyPak. Check out this video to see how it’s done:

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and gives you the same user interface as Diskeeper itself. Like so many applications, you can use PolicyPak to deliver the Proxy settings for Diskeeper. Make sure that “Use a Proxy Server for your LAN” is always checked and then set the IP address and port. Then make sure that “Bypass proxy server for local address” is checked as well.

Maybe you want all of your users to have access to Diskeeper, and then maybe you don’t. You can enforce whatever setting you want for “Permit all users to access Diskeeper.” Then lock this delivered setting all the way down to the registry itself with PolicyPak’s signature feature, ACL Lockdown. Simply right click on the setting and select “Perform ACL Lockdown” and even registry savvy users won’t be able to alter your desired settings.

As the Network Administrator you probably want “Enable automatic check for updates and upgrades” unchecked and your users probably want “Disable Automatic Defragmentation when running on battery power” unchecked too. No problem with PolicyPak and while you’re at it, lock each of these unchecked setting values with ACL Lockdown.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Diskeeper, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, Lync, Java, Firefox, and any custom applications you have. They’re 100% included – absolutely free.

It’s all included when you’re a PolicyPak Professional customer.

PolicyPak was designed by Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz – who “wrote the book” on Group Policy, runs GPanswers.com, and lives and breathes Group Policy and enterprise software deployments and desktop lockdown.

When you’re ready to get serious about managing Diskeeper, PolicyPak is ready for you.
