Deep Freeze Enterprise 8.11 Now Released
Posted by Adam Zilliax on 25 June 2014 12:30 PM

We have released a updated version of Deep Freeze Enterprise, version 8.11. This version is primarly a bug fix release but does contain two new enhancements;

  • We now display the logged in user in the Deep Freeze Enterprise Console
  • We now end Windows Update tasks a bit more gracefully, this will allow any updates that have begun installing to finish prior to ending the maintenance window.

There are two important issues in the list of issues that we have fixed;

  • We have resolved a security issue that may allow users to access Deep Freeze on the local machine without proper authorization.
  • We have resolved a issue that resulted in the workstation sending abnormally large amounts of data when Faronics Core was used to manage the workstation.

If you have any questions please contact technical support and we will be happy to assist further.
