PolicyPak for Pavlov 7Zip

ISO image files are springing up all over your network.  Some of them are image based install files for the latest applications and service packs that have been downloaded from Microsoft and other vendors.  Some of them are large folders that have them compressed into image files by an application such as WinISO for storage.

Years ago the only thing you could do with an ISO file was to burn it.

Thanks to applications such as 7-Zip however, users can open ISO files and browse them at will. It’s a wonderful little application and it’s readily available to download from the Internet.

It’s also one of those applications that you don’t use very often, the kind of application that generates calls to the helpdesk on those rare occasions your users you do, especially when its application settings are in disarray thanks to user intervention.

Enter – our pre-configured PolicyPak for 7-Zip!

Ensure your 7-Zip 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 7-Zip itself. You can set key settings like what is seen here.
You can disable the entire Folders tab to ensure that your users always use the correct location for the 7-Zip temporary folder.
As with many of our PolicyPaks, you can even hide designated elements of 7-Zip after their configuration to ensure that users are not only unable to modify the element settings, they don’t even know they are there.

Once 7-Zip is deployed to your users, you’ve got no way to manage this application. Users can simply work around your settings, generating support costs for a totally free application.  Ouch!

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

Besides, once you’re using PolicyPak to manage ieSpell, 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 7-Zip, PolicyPak is ready for you.
