The new version 1.3.0 of the free “FrontFace Lockdown Tool” is now available! The Lockdown Tool helps administrators to easily configure Windows-based PCs as protected, public kiosk terminals or for other special use applications such as digital signage player PCs that are supposed to be run unattended 24/7!
While the Windows operating system has all the features and configuration options that are needed for these special use cases, it takes a lot of manual work to configure a PC for such an application due to the fact that the required settings are “hidden” all over the system, e.g. in the Windows Registry.
The FrontFace Lockdown Tool provides all the relevant settings in a single application with an intuitive user interface. Apart from custom configurations, it also comes with ready-to-use configuration profiles for a protected kiosk mode and for digital signage applications that can be applied with only one click!
The new version 1.3.0 now also features a command line interface that allows integrating the Lockdown Tool into batch configuration scripts that can then be used for a fully automatic configuration of Windows-based PCs.
The FrontFace Lockdown Tool is optimized for the use with the kiosk software “FrontFace for Touch Kiosks” as well as the digital signage software “FrontFace for Public Displays” by mirabyte. However, it can also be used with any other, custom Windows application!
The Lockdown Tool is freeware and is already included in the installation packages of “FrontFace for Public Displays” and “FrontFace for Touch Kiosks”. But it can also be downloaded separately on the product Website. The software does not require an installation and can even be launched directly from USB thumb drives which makes it a perfect tool for system administrators!
