PolicyPak for World Wide Web Consortium Amaya

Just because Amaya is an open source application doesn’t mean you need to leave it open for users to take charge of modifying their own settings.  Open source programs can be harder to troubleshoot as  there is little support documentation available.  For that reason, you certainly don’t want to tie up your help desk with calls about this or any other open source application just because your users meddled with the optimum configuration settings that you already configured.

That’s where PolicyPak comes in.  We enforce and lock down the optimum settings values  that you, the administrator, want them to have.  PolicyPak sets and enforces expectations for your users’ applications, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

We do it for standardized applications from major application vendors as well as open source applications like Amaya.  Keep your Amaya 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 Amaya itself.  Security is the most important aspect of what PolicyPak does.   Here, you would certainly want to disable the “Remember passwords for sites” setting.  What’s more, you can use the “Hide corresponding control in target application” feature in PolicyPak to keep it hidden from your users.

Don’t trust your users with SMTP settings.  Instead, preconfigure them with PolicyPak.  Here you can assign the “SMTP server address” as well as the “Server port.”  You can then use the PolicyPak feature, “Disable corresponding control in target application” and disable this setting element so that users can’t access it at all.

Amaya is an application with international appeal so it comes in many available languages.  Make sure that your users open up the application in their expected language.  Here, you can assign the “Dialogue Language” setting and again, disable it using PolicyPak.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Amaya, 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 Amaya, PolicyPak is ready for you.
