PolicyPak for Shockwave

Adobe Shockwave is one of those applications we “take for granted.”

Most IT shops just bury it into the Windows image and if a web site needs it for product simulations, complex drawing, or whatever, then then Adobe Shockwave automatically runs and the user is happy.

Once Shockwave is “out there” and deployed, what are you going to do to ensure its got the right settings? Enter – our pre-configured PolicyPak for Shockwave! With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Shockwave might be a small browser application, but ensuring the settings are what you need is of ultimate importance.

For instance, if you manage a network for a school system, you probably have thousands of computers utilizing Shockwave every day for training videos and interactive games that your students use every day.  You’ll want to make sure your software renderer is optional and compatible with exactly what you have.

You don’t  want users being able to get prompted for an upgrade (you KNOW that’s a helpdesk call waiting to happen) and you likely don’t want to provide anonymous data to Adobe (based upon your corporate policies.)

With PolicyPak our Pre-Configured PolicyPak for Shockwave Player, you get full control over what users can and cannot do.  You get granular control for each OU and its users and computers – using normal Group Policy controls.   What’s more, the settings will revert back when the Group Policy no longer applies (for instance, if the user changes job roles).

Ensure your Shockwave settings are dictated and ensured using Group Policy.  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 of Shockwave itself. You can set key settings like what is seen here.
Like many applications, PolicyPak gives you the ability to disable particular settings within Shockwave, preventing your users from interfering with your configuration.
In addition, you can even hide a particular setting so that the user doesn’t even know it’s even there.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Shockwave, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way: Flash, WinZip, 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 Shockwave, PolicyPak is ready for you.
