PolicyPak for RealNetworks RealPlayer

Media players aren’t just for MP3 files anymore.  When your employees are trying to playback the video presentation by the company CEO, you need it to work perfectly.  You need the expensive training videos you made for new employees to work flawlessly.

The show must go on, except when the show can’t play because your users have modified the configuration settings for RealPlayer so that the show never gets off the ground.

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

Ensure your RealPlayer 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 RealPlayer itself.  Your users access so many media presentations over the Internet which means you have to make sure that the firewall has the proper ports open.  Assign the specific UDP ports of your choice with PolicyPak to ensure that your users don’t call the helpdesk when they can’t access off site video presentations.
Since you can manage and lockdown RealPlayer application settings with PolicyPak, you may want to make it the default media player for your users.  You can do so by selecting “Make RealPlayer my Universal Media Player.”  Then you can use PolicyPak’s unique ACL Lockdown feature that will lock down settings all the way down to the registry itself.  Simply right click on a setting and select “Perform ACL Lockdown.”  This will prevent registry savvy users from accessing and altering your delivered setting values within the registry itself.
Like so many of the applications we support, you can use PolicyPak to disable application updates in RealPlayer.  Simply select the radio button for “Automatically download and install important updates” and then lock it down in the registry as well with ACL Lockdown.

With PolicyPak, you’re the one in control.

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