We have a requirement to spec some “public PC’s” in a learning centre that can be accessed (upon booking) by members of the public. Currently the machines have a tool installed that should image the systems config and return to it once the machine reboots/new user accesses it.

However there are concerns this tool affects the ability to update certain software when security releases are made. The concept of disk freeze is good but I thought I would brainstorm some ideas on disk protection for public machines – and what other security solutions need to be configured. It should be centrally controllable.
