Windows desktop lockdown and content protection solution, NetSupport Protect: update for Windows 8 and 8.1

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Remote Control and Desktop Management software specialist, NetSupport, announces NetSupport Protect version 2.10 - the latest evolution of its desktop security and content protection solution.

The new version offers a fresh user experience with a restyled interface designed to ensure that lockdown features can be accessed with the minimum of effort, combined with full support for Windows 8 and 8.1.

NetSupport Protect is the intuitive and cost-effective desktop security solution for Windows-based systems that helps IT techs deliver a reliable computer environment with the minimum of effort. For use on office PCs and in any teaching or training environment, the product is particularly relevant in shared-use scenarios where the same systems are accessed by several users a day.

As organisations migrate to Windows 8, they will quickly become aware of the additional threats this brings in terms of protecting the configuration of systems and limiting access to the wide range of external resources now on offer.

NetSupport Protect 2.10 is therefore perfectly timed to help overcome the potential pitfalls. Key highlights include the ability to disable access to the Windows Store, prevent uninstalls from the Windows 8 menus and offers application control over both desktop and Windows Store apps.

But if the worst should happen, the product's integrated rollback technology is also fully Windows 8 compatible so can be called upon to restore the system in full, quickly and transparently.

Commenting on the new release, NetSupport's Development Director Rob Hawkins said: "With the new version we were naturally keen to address the specific security issues customers face when introducing Windows 8 to their organisations, both in terms of desktop content and when attempting to access online resources. Version 2.10 ensures NetSupport Protect continues to offer a simple and effective desktop security solution across all Windows environments." NetSupport Protect also integrates seamlessly with NetSupport's classroom management solution, NetSupport School, ensuring students are restricted from amending the configuration of their computers, while, at the same time, teachers have full access as soon as they connect to the target computer remotely.
