PolicyPak for Adobe Flash Player

Got Super cookies? I bet you do – and, no, it’s not your Aunt Edna’s latest diet craze. It’s your latest security threat. And it lives on your corporate Windows machines.

The problem is:

  • The “bad guys” can use your Flash Player to store information what you’re searching and what you’re doing.
  • Then the “really bad guys” can pick up that data and
  • The “insanely bad guys” sell your data to
  • The “downright criminals” trying to attack your corporate machines!

So, as “good guys” what are we supposed to do? Lock it down — THAT’S WHAT.

Enter PolicyPak, and it’s free Pre-configured PolicyPak for Flash player. Using Group Policy, it’s super easy to manage how:

  • Adobe Flash is should get updates (you KNOW you want to turn it off!)
  • Users should (and shouldn’t) use cameras and microphones. Prevent data leaks!
  • Adobe Flash stores data / cookies / supercookies about where it’s been and what you’ve been doing; ya know, that important “privacy” stuff.
  • Specify exactly which sites can ALLOW or BLOCK Camera, Microphone, Local Storage, Peer-assisted Networking, and Developer settings.

… and just about every other Adobe Flash setting.

Adobe Flash has no native Group Policy support with ADM or ADMX files to control these key settings.

That’s because these settings aren’t stored in the Windows registry – they’re stored in a file – that users don’t have access to. Because of that, there’s no way to manage that on all your client computers. That is, without PolicyPak.

Watch this video to see exactly how to lock down Flash Player using Group Policy:

Our solution isn’t a mere “ADM” template, it’s a true Group Policy extension, with powerful management capabilities. PolicyPak can deliver and revoke Flash settings – even though the settings are in a system file on the PC.And you can manage it using Group Policy.

Our PolicyPak software snaps-in to the Group Policy Editor and mimics the user interface of Flash Player itself. We’ve even added a few things you can’t normally do – unless you know the tricks !Here, you can see how to prevent Flash from being updated.

And you can prevent users from picking up dangerous Flash super cookies, by performing this simple step.
Or, you can prevent users from using cameras and microphones! A serious Privacy “no-no” ! Poof..there goes cameras and microphones for the user.

With PolicyPak and the free Pre-Configured PolicyPak for Flash Player, you get full control over Flash Player, and granular control for each OU or users – 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.)

Don’t you think these settings are important to set for your company for security?

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage Flash Player, you’ll also get to manage all your other enterprise desktop applications the same way:Java, WinZip, Acrobat, Firefox and any custom application 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 Firefox today, and in the future, PolicyPak is ready for you.
