Faronics Software & Windows 10
Posted by Adam Zilliax on 26 June 2015 06:26 AM

We have had a number of people asking us about our plans for supporting Windows 10 when it’s released, mainly concerned that we will have a version that will support Windows 10 in time for the launch on July 29th.

At this time we are doing QA checks and bug fixes on the previews that have been released however until we get the final copy of Windows 10 (commonly called the RTM version) we cannot be sure that there are not last second changes that may impact our software. As such we are not providing a firm release date at this time.

If Microsoft supplies its partners with the RTM version of Windows 10 ahead of the July 29th launch we will be getting that into the lab and working with that as soon as we can. The results of that testing will determine if we have any outstanding issues that need to be resolved or if we are good to release, but we can’t really start until we get the RTM version of the software.

For customers who have a valid maintenance agreement with us you will be able to download the updated version of any of your licensed products through our Faronics Labs portal once we get the updated build posted. If your maintenance has lapsed you will need to put you in touch with a member of our team to discuss options to renew that maintenance agreement and get access to the update when it’s released.

Performance issues in Deep Freeze Cloud resolved.
Posted by Adam Zilliax on 30 April 2015 06:41 AM

Our development teams and operations teams have isolated and resolved the causes of the performance issues that had been reported in Deep Freeze Cloud in the previous few days.


Our operations team is continuing to monitor the situation and has further improvements that will be implemented to further improve performance. To implement these changes we have to restart some portions of the cloud services and as such customers may see short periods of interruption no longer than 5 min in duration.


We want to thank our customers for their patience while we worked through this issue. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to reach out to us via email to or call us at 800-943-6422 x 1.
