We originally started using PolicyPak as it was the only solution that we found that would allow us to manage Firefox within the enterprise. Even with Firefox’s own policy manager, PolicyPak still beats that, hands down, with thousands of Firefox settings to configure. Beyond Firefox, we are now using PolicyPak to manage Java, Adobe products, and so much more! I believe that the best features are geared towards Windows 10 management. We use File Associations Manager and the Start Screen Manager for Windows 10 to specify which extensions open in what apps, and ensure that the right people are advertised the right icons on the Windows 10 start menu. Amazing!
We absolutely love the Administrative Templates Manager to reduce GPOs and target new settings just for Windows 10.
So, Microsoft’s Group Policy in-box stuff was good. With PolicyPak, now it’s great. Best of all, with our existing Group Policy experience, we already know how to use it. PolicyPak is quickly becoming our primary means of implementing new settings with Group Policy here at TIAA.
