NetSupport Protect

NetSupport, a maker commercial software packages to manage and support Local and Wide Area Computer Networks, was on hand to showcase the release of its NetSupport Protect product. The desktop security solution and software package provides systems administrators with increased control over their networks by preventing users from exploring, changing, or damaging their Windows operating systems, installing unauthorized software, deleting important files, or otherwise causing problems for the network. “Institutions looking to securely manage their desktops can now prevent malicious or accidental damage to their desktop environment rather than having to repair damage after the fact, which would cost more, take more time, and disrupt the network more,” said Marcus Kingsley, group sales and marketing director for NetSupport. “NetSupport Protect gives IT departments and administrators or managers peace of mind, reduces time spent putting out network ‘fires,’ and helps safeguard the institution’s technology investment.” Available fully localized in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian, NetSupport Protect can hide files and folders, lock control panels and settings, prevent renaming and deletion of files or folders, prevent file creation by type of file, restrict internet downloads and control access to USB devices, and CDR or DVD drives, the company said.
