Netkiosk Desktop Lock Tray Version (included Free)
We have added the Netkiosk Desktop Lock Tray version.
This version was previously already available.
You can run Netkiosk Desktop Lock Tray version standalone.
The Netkiosk Desktop Lock Tray Version as the name suggests simply runs in the system Tray. You can open admin panel by right clicking on the system tray icon.
Netkiosk Desktop Lock System Tray version allow you to block access all programs other then the ones you have allowed.
This simply means that a user cannot open any program exe that is not allowed by admin. This can greatly help in stopping virus programs or malware being run on the PC that for some reason where not detected by your Antivirus.
How does Netkiosk Desktop block programs?
Netkiosk Desktop Lock works similar to Windows Taskmanager with the difference that it monitors programs and processes and automatically blocks any program or process that you, as admin did not allow in Netkiosk admin panel.
Peace of mind.
Programs and folders are only blocks while Netkiosk runs.
Netkiosk does NOT make any permanent changes to your system.
All lockdown and blocking features are directly built-in inside Netkiosk.
As soon as you close Netkiosk (Via admin panel) your PC is fully unlocked.
It really is as clever and as simply as that.
Furthermore you can also block access to Windows folders as well as external program folders.
Netkiosk Desktop Lock Tray Versions is at present automatically included with all licenses.
- Right click on the Netkiosk system Tray icon to open admin panel.
- On first install no username and password needed.
3) Select the programs you want to allow.
Optional: Block folder access.
Folder access is simply blocked and no data is changed.
This is NOT permanent and folders are only blocked while Netkiosk runs.
When a user tries to open a folder that you have not allowed Netkiosk will detect this and simply close the folder (or program menu.) And nothing else.
This is a simple and effective way to control PC access without making any changes to the system as all the control features are directly built-inside Netkiosk.
Again this is similar in the way that Netkiosk task manager monitors processes.
But in the case of Netkiosk any folder or menu that is not allowed by admin will simply be closed when a user clicks on it.
Netkiosk Desktop Lock has especially been designed to be a simple, Powerful, safe and effective solution whereby you as admin keep full control.
Why is Netkiosk Desktop Lock so effective.
As admin you can simply decide to which programs users have access.
Imagine the worst case scenario.
Even with your Antivirus, Windows Defender etc running at full speed you are never 100% guaranteed of peace of mind as some of these clever malware programs might slip through the antivirus Net. And then, of course, decent Anti virus programs will scan any program before it is allowed to run. But what if some clever code in this virus or malware is not detected by the Antivirus program? This is where Netkiosk comes into play. In the worst case scenario that a user might managed to download a virus or program onto the PC and then, yes the program tries to run or install, and it is still not detected by the Antivirus program Netkiosk will simply see this as a program that is not allowed by admin. Even if this program is a virus or malware it simply won’t be executed as the process that is part or the program is simply not allowed to run.
Could it really that simple?
