Windows IT Pro Rates PowerBroker Desktop 4 out of 5 Stars

Posted June 1, 2012    Peter McCalister

Windows IT Pro has published its review of PowerBroker Desktops, Windows Edition. The review is quite favorable and gave PowerBroker Desktop a 4 out of 5 star rating, saying PowerBroker Desktops is an easier way to protect users’ computers. An excerpt below:
