Product Overview

SmartShield in conjunction with the SmartControl Resource Manager server software, enables network administrators to easily maintain their workstation integrity and keep their network under control.

With SmartShield protection enabled, all changes made to a machine are removed upon system restart. This makes unwanted system changes an impossibility. SmartShield simplifies administrators’ lives by reducing downtime, streamlining management and providing complete protection from Malware and malicious users – all in a single, easy to use product.

After every restart, the workstation is back to its original state. This allows administrators to easily standardize and maintain their workstation images across their organization indefinitely.
  • Remote ExecuteThrough the SmartControl Resource Manager, an administrator is able to remotely execute scripts on a SmartShield client.
  • Advanced SchedulingFrom the SmartControl Resource Manager, an administrator is able to automate and schedule tasks to run on SmartShield clients.
