Product SureLock
Platform Windows 7/Windows 8

Businesses with mobile workforce require secure and uncompromisable devices to ensure responsible usage, improve productivity and reduce maintenance cost.

One way to achieve the above mentioned objectives is by allowing access to only required applications and preventing the users from making any intended or unintended changes on the device.

With SureLock, you can allow only desired applications to run on the device and only admin can access the password protected settings to either modify lockdown configurations or exit the lockdown.

You can easily install and configure SureLock however in situations when you have multiple devices in different locations for configurations, manually configuring SureLock for each of the devices could be difficult.  In such situations you can make use of Export/Import SureLock Settings using Cloud option. Once lockdown settings has been finalized, you can export settings to the cloud and then import it on other devices from the cloud.
