PolicyPak for RARLabs WinRAR

It’s an archive utility that can unpack nearly any archive format and one of the few that can compress to the ZIP or RAR formats.

There’s also another thing it has, lots of configuration settings that your users can modify incorrectly, which then archives another ticket at the help desk.

That’s where PolicyPak comes in.  We lock down application settings so your users can’t meddle with them.  PolicyPak delivers, enforces, remediates and locks down your users’ applications, including WinRAR, so that they get the same experience, every time they launch it.

Ensure your WinRAR settings are dictated and ensured using PolicyPak.  Get those settings out there using Group Policy, SCCM or your own management tool.  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 WinRAR itself. Here, you the administrator can select which files will be associated with WinRAR and then lock down those settings with PolicyPak’s signature ACL.
Users shouldn’t have access to any settings on a tab titled “Security” for just about any application, which is why PolicyPak gives you the ability to lock down the entire tab of settings so that your selections for those settings such as “Wipe temporary files” is inaccessible to your users  using our “Disable whole tab in target application” feature.
Many of your inexperienced users depend on the applications wizard to guide them through an application.  Make sure that the “Activate Wizard on start” is enabled and then hide this setting from your users so it doesn’t get accidently unchecked.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

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