With the updated Protect-On2, teachers can be confident that student computers are virus-free and ready to use all of the time.
Portland, Ore; Langenthal, Switzerland (PRWEB) October 16, 2007
GenevaLogic today released an update to its student computer security software. Protect-On2 is now compatible with the new Windows Vista operating systems. This means that teachers can save and restore the original configuration of classroom computers - avoiding viruses, frustrating downtime or unwanted downloads - with a quick restart on their school's newest computers as well as their other Windows legacy machines. Existing Protect-On2 customers with active annual support and upgrade protection packages can download a free update at http://www.genevalogic.com/protect-on2/.
Founded in 1996, GenevaLogic is a privately held company whose Vision® classroom management software is used in more than 50,000 classrooms worldwide. In June, the company announced that all products in the Vision family - Surf-Lock™, App-Control™, Pointer™ and the new Vision Teach-Pad™ - were also compatible with the new operating systems.
"At GenevaLogic, we are constantly updating our classroom management software so it meets the changing technology needs of today's schools," said Kirk Greiner, chief executive officer, GenevaLogic. "With the updated Protect-On2, teachers can be confident that student computers are virus-free and ready to use all of the time."
Using Protect-On2, teachers can roll back virus damage and unwanted changes that students may have made to classroom computers. With a simple restart, computers are back to normal with no damage, downloads or games. Protect-On2 allows teachers to remotely reboot, change settings or wake the student computers and schedule unprotected time for system changes, such as virus protection updates. The computer security software saves teachers valuable time that, in the past, was spent changing security settings on individual computers.
While Protect-On2 is available as a stand-alone product, it can also be easily integrated with Vision classroom management software. Easy one-button integration with the Vision toolbar makes it simple to open the security console and manage security settings. Teachers can also use the Vision dashboard to keep track of which computers have active security and are protected in the classroom. The Protect-On2 console can be opened from the Vision dashboard to change settings.
The most affordable fully featured computer protection available, Protect-On2 is available for $11 per student computer, including the teacher remote console. For more information or to download a trial version of Protect-On2, visit http://www.GenevaLogic.com/Protect-On2 or call 866-725-7833.
