Faronics has announced the release of Deep Freeze Mac 3.0, it software that instantly protects and preserves original computer configurations, eliminating routine maintenance, while allowing complete unrestricted access to the computer. The company says that regardless of the changes made to a workstation, a simple restart resets the computer to its original state.
