I have appx 50 new tablets for our mobile work force that need to be for lack of a better description "locked down".
These users will be using an application installed on the tablet and then will be sending the data to the terminal server and update one of the databases with data entered. Internet access will be needed for an ftp site which will house manuals and other industry related documentation. Email may be necessary.
Wireless broadband is going to be the medium for access to the server.
The overall goal is to reduce time spent on correcting what the users will screw up.
If I can have just one or two options for them and thats it I increase my chances.
1)Remove all unnecessary software
2)Control browsing ( is host file manipulation the best option )
3)Remove access to all system or critical files.
Is there a program that can control this process if these tablets are not a part of a domain and a GPO is not used? Possibly a better description may be a program that would assess the OS and all installed software and let me choose what to keep and what to restrict access to.
Thanks in advance
