proVlocker


proVlocker is a locking solution for user environments and workstation functions on PCs, laptops, tablets, thin clients and all Windows devices. ProVlocker allows you to regain full administrative control of your network and lets you lock any functions on a remote device that might be problematic.

As a plug-in offered with the Xcalibur W platform, proVlocker allows you to remotely allocate rules for locking (or unlocking) devices in just a few seconds, over a network of several thousand devices.

The current version of proVlocker supports Windows 7, however future releases will support Windows 8 and Windows 10.

proVlocker is based on restriction policies which are applied lively to the user session once user logs in.
