Faronics has announced Deep Freeze 2.0, the newest version of its Mac OS X disk protection tool.

This version supports Apple Remote Desktop (ARD). It's designed to keep Macs on networks safe and stable by setting up a standard Mac OS X system image that the Mac returns to when it restarts. This edition of Deep Freeze Mac can be deployed and controlled with ARD.

Any changes applied to a Mac running Deep Freeze are temporary. This includes installing applications, deleting files and more. User data can be saved to a network drive, external media or a specified partition.

The software costs $372.55 for a ten-user licence.
