WINSelect 7.0 Delivers Simplified Policy Management to Windows

SAN RAMON, CA--(Marketwire - December 3, 2007) - Faronics is proud to announce the release of WINSelect 7.0, a software utility that delivers full control over computer system settings. WINSelect 7.0 empowers IT administrators with the ability to easily customize a computer's capabilities by restricting user access to certain applications, websites, program functions, and menu options -- all without any required knowledge of complex Group Policies.

WINSelect 7.0 features numerous enhancements that make it easy to manage the functionality of computers in a public access, kiosk, or library environment. New features include Kiosk Mode, Session Timers, and Printer Restrictions, making it easy for IT administrators to instantly turn a computer into a full-fledged secure kiosk, limit the length of each user session, and restrict user access to printers and print quantities. Also, exclusive to WINSelect, IT administrators can now customize the menu options in all Microsoft Office applications.

"Anyone who has dealt with complicated Group Policies to customize a computer instantly sees the benefits of WINSelect," said Brent Smithurst, Vice President of Technical Operations for Faronics. "WINSelect's greatest strength is that it provides the flexibility to customize a computer based on needs -- whether that's the needs of the organization, computing environment, IT department, or user."

WINSelect 7.0 works with Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP2, and Windows Vista. A free, fully functional 30 day evaluation version of WINSelect can be downloaded from
