A new case study was published today on our use of Provisio’s SiteKiosk product with our custom kiosk applications. It highlights two recent kiosk deployment projects that used the SiteKiosk product to secure the kiosk environment and prevent tampering and hacking.
We’ve been using the tool from Provisio for many years, after switching from NetStop Pro back in 2004 and evaluating many other tools. Each new release improves functionality and feature sets. It’s built in customizable browser engine is based on IE and has the ability to whitelist / blacklist URL’s , restrict downloading, set to a full screen and much more. It’s sister product, SiteRemote.net provides a full online reporting suite and remote management tool to enable us to monitor the health of the kiosks deployed across many different networks, restart the kiosks, apply software patches and upload files in the background.
We have a museum client that tell us that our kiosks are always up and running whereas other kiosks are often giving their IT departments busy maintaining them. While we can build apps that run in most any kiosk environment, we know that it is often due to a stable operating environment such as SiteKiosk that keeps our applications looking good!
The case study is also available for download at the Kiosk Marketplace web site.
