Public-Facing Desktop Kiosk


Client Technology fulfils all requests for workstation hardware, software and peripherals for all subscribers of public-facing desktop kiosks used by state constituents (non-state employees).

The Public Kiosk computer has a specialized software image and controls in place.  The operating system is hardened and secured to resist tampering. Each time a reboot occurs, the computer returns to its original state: a clean version of the operating system is restored and all changed files are wiped from the computer.

The computer is isolated from the rest of the State of Maine network by a firewall. Remote administration of the computer is allowed to keep it up-to-date with system patches and virus / malware protection.
