The problem is that when the settings are misconfigured for an application like this, it doesn’t just impact the program itself. It can impact all of your virtual machines as well.
(PRWEB) October 03, 2013
PolicyPak Software, the leader in desktop and application management, recently released a new Pak for VMware Workstation.
The pre-configured Pak for VMware Workstation gives admins the ability to enforce and streamline configuration settings for users, so they can’t misconfigure them. For example, admins can ensure that “Check for product updates on startup” is always unchecked, so users aren’t prompted for automatic updates. Additionally, admins can make sure users can’t override their setting choice by selecting “Disable corresponding control in target application.” A full list of features for the Pak can be found on the PolicyPak website.
IT Admins and network administrators who want to try out the PolicyPak software can get a free trial by attending a Group Policy Webinar at the PolicyPak Website, or by calling (800) 883-8002.
Jeremy Moskowitz, Group Policy MVP and founder of PolicyPak Software recently talked about the Pak when he said, “It’s truly wonderful to have the ability to manage multiple virtual machines from your desktop or laptop using applications such as VMware Workstation. The problem is that when the settings are misconfigured for an application like this, it doesn’t just impact the program itself. It can impact all of your virtual machines as well. That’s where PolicyPak comes in.”
PolicyPak can deliver settings using Microsoft Active Directory Group Policy, Microsoft SCCM, Dell KACE, or any other management tool.
