The Lock facilitates PC auditing and HIPPA, Access and Authorization including Security control within the OS.
Security auditing performed the The Lock is defined by users who are part of certain groups including the members of Windows' Administrator group. The Lock allows administrators to define key system policies, allowed login times, times which Internet access is permitted and more.
The full version of The Lock allows administrators to restrict access to printers, disallow the PRINT SCREEN key, restrict web sites users may access among other things administrators would want to enforce to improve productivity.
The latest version of The Lock supports both Microsoft Internet Explorer and Firefox; it can also disable and/or restrict access to file systems and can effectively ban third party access to the system via removable media devices such as pen drives and USB sticks.
