how to lockdown a pc
Posted on 2007-11-15
Im on the process of building 50 laptops that are going to be sent to clinical sites for studies. Now, each of these will have a software program installed on them and another link to a site where they have to upload all the data from the studies so that we can access it whenever we need to. My problem is this... my boss is asking me if there is a way to lockdown this pc so that they cant surf the web for recreational uses and/or get a virus. Im not sure how to do this and also if I do this doesnt that disable the portal that is created on the desktop via the http client to uplaod the data?
Also, do you guys have any suggestions what I should disable on these machines going to the clinical sites and if you do what is the best way to do your suggested solution?
Appreciate any help this is the first time Im working on such a project so Im a little lost.
