What Group Policy has been missing
Group Policy rocks. But, out OF the box, it’s missing the biggest piece to get you the true security you need – application and operating system lockdown.
And that’s why we’ve created PolicyPak Application Manager.
PolicyPak Application Manager helps you:
- ensure compliance
- reduce the number of images
- immediately increase end-user productivity and
- deal with end-users’ applications settings management
True, Responsive Settings Management
PolicyPak Application Manager isn’t a set of ADM files. It’s a true settings management system which uses Group Policy to deliver settings and lock the application down.
PolicyPak Application Manager allows you to lock down settings so that your users cannot change or work round them, as shown here for Java.
PolicyPak Application Manager enables you to deliver settings to your applications, lock users out of those settings and guarantee those applications stay configured.
So, ready to get PolicyPak Application Manager working for you?
We have two main ways of making PolicyPak Application Manager mesh with you requirements.
You can either:
… or you can create your own Paks with PolicyPak DesignStudio:
What is the PolicyPak DesignStudio?
The PolicyPak DesignStudio enables you to build your own Paks for any downloaded, purchased, proprietary or home-grown applications. It is included as part of PolicyPak Application Manager.
With DesignStudio, you can lock down any application on your users’ desktops by creating the appropriate Pak.
Create your own tailored Paks
Creating your own Paks for your off-the-shelf or in-house applications is as easy as 1-2-3. See how easy it is to configure an application you already use in the video below. In this example, we’ll use WinZip to create our first PolicyPak (but you can envision your own desktop application of any kind here):
…run our pre-configured Paks on your applications:
