Regulate Leopard Connectivity With Device Filter Mac

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - November 27, 2007) - Following the highly-anticipated and successful release of Deep Freeze Mac 4.0, Faronics is proud to announce that Device Filter Mac 1.01 now also supports Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. This latest version includes localization in five different languages: English, French, German, Japanese, and Spanish.

Unregulated connectivity can cause a multitude of security, productivity, and policy challenges. Device Filter Mac solves this problem by enabling system administrators to effectively control device connectivity at an enterprise level. Anything from an iPod to USB drives to Bluetooth devices can be managed to prevent unauthorized data transfers or connections from taking place. Device Filter Mac offers seamless integration with Apple Remote Desktop, allowing administrators to deploy a customized device connectivity configuration package to multiple computers.

"When it comes to security, IT administrators have a lot to worry about -- USB, Infrared, Ethernet, Wireless, and Bluetooth devices all represent ways in which enterprise systems and data can be breached," said Brent Smithurst, Vice President of Technical Operations for Faronics. "By providing total control of device connectivity, Device Filter Mac helps IT administrators manage, simplify, and secure their Mac computing environments."

Advanced configuration features include the ability to assign permanent, temporary, or one-time-only authorizations, and assigning constraints to filter devices or network connections based on capacity. With the ability to generate usage reports, Device Filter Mac allows system administrators to monitor as well as control device connectivity on their enterprise level systems.
