WinU is a full Windows user interface replacement with security access control, timeout, logging, web-browser
monitoring, remote administration, and many flexible configuration options. It's easy to set up, easy to use,
and virtually impossible to circumvent. It has many features heretofore found only in high-end tools,
including system stabilization, access control, anti-malware, remote configuration, and web-browser oversight. It includes a
LAN-wide management system that cuts the time and effort spent maintaining PCs in the corporate environment.
It also features tech support and helpdesk tools that speed problem diagnosis and resolution. Its centralized
administration tools are very useful in managing across the LAN, yet WinU is equally valuable on non-networked
computers such as standalone public kiosks.
WinU's simplified replacement user interface
allows full access to authorized software, yet prevents
accidental or malicious system modifications. It lets you specify the amount of time that each program can be
used. On each controlled computer, WinU
can track up to a million programs on a thousand password/biometric protected desktops per computer. Each desktop can
have its own name, appearance, programs, time limits, and security settings. WinU logs all accessed websites,
blocks Ctrl+Alt+Del and the Windows keys, makes files or folders read-only or invisible, denies access to
unauthorized programs, disables the keyboard at startup to prevent users from bypassing Windows, locks the CD-ROM
drive door, and more.
WinU is an excellent way to provide easily-understood access to novice users. It is useful for
businesses that want to let employees use only authorized applications, for schools and public institutions
that need to give patrons access to specific programs yet safeguard the computer against tampering. The user
has full access to authorized software, but can't change the computer's setup or delete important files.
Nowadays more and more people use computers, yet they know less and less about them. To address this,
corporate and institutional system administrators worldwide rely on WinU's easy-to-use interface to reduce
training costs so new staff can use computers fast, and at the same time prevent accidental or malicious
computer modifications. Thus, systems aren't "out of service" and users can do their work without interruption.
WinU allows the administrator to monitor and control all computers LAN-wide from one central location.
This includes the ability to update, logoff, shut down, reboot or reconfigure WinU stations anywhere on the
LAN, send popup text messages to individual Full Control stations or broadcast them to all WinU computers.
WinU can monitor all browser activity,
log all accessed websites, and deny access to unauthorized sites.
It can make files or folders read-only or invisible to prevent unauthorized
access. It can control any window, such as Options dialogs or Control
Panel applets, through which the user might change settings or access
the file system. It can deny or password-protect Ctrl+Alt+Del and
similar keys. It can prevent users from bypassing Windows at startup,
lock the CD-ROM drive to prevent removal of valuable CDs, and provide
a minute-by-minute audit trail of all system activity.
WinU's One Click System Stabilization allows the user full
access to authorized software yet prevents accidental or malicious
system modifications. This prevents new software from being installed by
anyone except you, the system administrator. It also prevents any executable
virus, spyware, malware, adware, or Trojan from running,
whether it is an older 'known' virus or a brand new 'unknown' virus.
Viruses, spyware, malware, adware, worms and Trojans are programs, and you (the administrator) have
not set your Bardon product to allow them to run. So even if your
anti-virus software has not yet been updated to identify the new nasties,
they will not be able to affect your computers. If the virus program can't
run, it can't infect your systems, or delete files, or take over your computer.
WinU features Intrusion Control which
watches for malware-like behavior in real-time on the computer, and prevents nasties including
spyware, malware, adware, and Trojans from setting themselves up on your system in the first
place. It can protect silently and automatically, or ask what it should do when it discovers
a questionable situation. The administrator can even customize it to handle different kinds
of attacks in different ways.
WinU can also lock down data flow to/from USB ports
and similar external sources, such as CD and DVD drives. This can prevent unauthorized data
leaving the computer (data theft) as well as preventing unauthorized data entering the computer
(spyware, malware, adware, Trojans, and similar nasties).
