Foxit Launches Group Policy Support in Enterprise PDF Reader

Group Policy Simplifies Large Foxit Enterprise Reader Deployments

FREMONT, Calif. - May 3, 2012 - Foxit® Corporation, a leading provider of solutions for reading, editing, creating, organizing, and securing PDF documents, today announced the new release of the Foxit Enterprise Reader 5.3, which provides support for Group Policy Objects (GPO).

GPO Large Deployment Support

GPO is a capability of Microsoft Windows® which provides a set of rules to centralize management and configuration of applications and users' settings in an Active Directory® environment. GPO allows IT administrators to hand pick a set of functionalities they want to enable/disable in their corporate environments and generate the corresponding GPO.

With GPO, enterprise IT organizations can ensure the consistency of the software environment across their vast user base. This significantly reduces IT administrators’ time since they don’t need to help each end user change the default software settings. For end users, they no longer are required to figure out how to make these configuration changes themselves.

Foxit Enterprise Reader is a version of the enormously popular Foxit Reader designed to meet the PDF viewing and deployment needs of enterprise and government organizations. Foxit Enterprise Reader 5.3 has been enhanced to support GPO to help IT professionals take greater control of enterprise-wide deployments to ensure the standardization of menu and configuration settings across all their users.

"Foxit Enterprise Reader is the company standard PDF reader in many large organizations," said Frank Kettenstock, VP of Marketing at Foxit.  "GPO support greatly helps IT deploy and maintain our software on a large number of desktops in a similar manner to how they manage their other software products."
