    support link from impero website

    Impero - Support

    quote from support section ref trying to bypass impero

    How easily can my network users bypass Impero?

    Impero has ungergone rigorous testing to ensure it is very robust and reliable.
    Running as a protected system service Impero continues to function even in Safe Mode.
    Pulling the network cable out from the Client computer also doesnt stop Impero from working - as soon as the cable is plugged back in, Impero will automatically connect back to and synchronise with the Impero Server.

    All settings, blocks and logs are stored centrally on the Impero Server computer where they cannot be tampered with by network users.

    Impero itself as well as all communication is encrypted using the 256bit AES standard.

    Impero Console can only be opened using the password you specify on the Impero Server, or if configured only by the usernames or computernames you have specified on the Console Access Rights.
    Also they have a chat live via skype and other methods so am sure you could chat with someone in support to find out ref the VLAN issue and other questions you have

    RE Impero -- we're using this on all 1250 of our machines. It works fine over VLANS but auto-discovery of the server won't work -- you'll need to set the IP address of the server in each machine. Not a big deal and there's a utility to do it for you.

    I am in discussion with Impero and if students have local admin rights they can stop the service (which ours will have). Impero have made a commitment to introduce password protection in a future patch so even a local admin cannot stop it, much the same way corporate anti-vitrus clients work.

    This has earnt points in my book, but still setting up the test environment.

    Just an update to conclude, we extensively tested Impero v3 and have decided to settle on this product. After testing nearly every product on the market this one had ticks for all our tests and service requirements.
