Faronics Named Official Supporting Partner for the WorldSkills Calgary 2009 Competition


    VANCOUVER, Sept. 1 /CNW/ -- Faronics is proud to be an official
Supporting Partner of the WorldSkills Calgary 2009 Competition kicking off
today in Calgary, Alberta. Faronics is supplying over $35,000 worth of Deep
Freeze licenses to protect the competition computing environments. Faronics is
also pleased to team up with their preferred channel partner EPIC Information
Solutions, who is exhibiting at the week long event. As a Platinum Sponsor of
the WorldSkills Calgary 2009 Competition, EPIC is deploying an extensive
information technology system.

    The 40th WorldSkills competition is showcasing over 900 international
competitors who are competing in 45 skill categories during four days of
intense competition in Stampede Park in Calgary. Hailed as the pinnacle of
global skills, trades, and technology competition, this biennial event
promotes excellence and international competency industry standards.

    Faronics Deep Freeze is assisting IT personnel in managing and securing
the competition computers by ensuring that any changes made during a user
session--regardless of whether they are accidental or malicious--are never
permanent. Deep Freeze's patented technology guarantees 100% workstation
availability and eliminates unwanted system changes between user sessions.

    Faronics will demonstrate the strength of their award winning solution by
offering $1,000 to anyone who can "break" Deep Freeze. The EPIC booth (# 2014)
will host the Deep Freeze $1,000 Challenge inviting attendees to permanently
change a setting or file on the workstation protected by Deep Freeze.
