PolicyPak Software Delivers Security and Lockdown Management for FoxIT Reader

(PR Web Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) (PRWEB) December 26, 2012 PolicyPak Software, a leader in desktop management software, has released their latest software pak, which streamlines the process for IT admins to configure and control settings for FoxIT Reader.

The pre-configured Pak used in conjunction with PolicyPak Professional software allows IT admins to turn off automatic updates, disable dangerous items like Javascript (the source of many security related attacks) and ensure that "Enable Safe Reading Mode" is always turned on. The PolicyPak solution is a true Group Policy extension and not just an "ADM" template.

"If you’re going to be deploying FoxIT Reader to all of your client machines, you’re going to want to make sure that the application itself is locked down and secure. Without PolicyPak, you’ve got nothing performing any remediation on this application. Users can just work around your security settings and steamroll over you," says Jeremy Moskowitz, the founder of PolicyPak. He is an expert on Group Policy.

PolicyPak Professional customers have free access to the FoxIT Reader pak, as well as dozens of other pre-configured applications. Some of the most popular applications offer solutions for Java, Flash, Firefox and Shockwave. Solutions are also available for less popular applications and homegrown applications with the PolicyPak Design Studio.

IT Admins can find out more about PolicyPak by attending a Group Policy Webinar at the PolicyPak Website, or by calling (800) 883-8002.

About PolicyPak Software: PolicyPak Software ( is the leader in application compliance and desktop management tools for Active Directory. The software enables IT pros to deliver, lockdown and remediate settings for desktops, laptops, VDI sessions, company devices, as well as personal “BYOD” devices. PolicyPak was founded by desktop management expert and Microsoft Group Policy MVP Jeremy Moskowitz.
