What are large scale deployments?

When installing the Adblock Plus extension for multiple machines and user accounts, it is time-consuming and tedious to perform a manual installation on each device. Administrators can utilize various tools to automate the installations, eg installer scripts or even configuration management software.

Any mass installation of a browser extension has to take a number of things into account, like: desired browsers, operating systems, internal policies or infrastructure in general.

Why to deploy Adblock Plus in an administered environment?

Adblock Plus is a great tool for every administered environment (university, school, company, governmental institution etc) containing multiple working station in the IT infrastructure.

Adblock Plus considerably decreases security and privacy risks over the entire IT network. Malware and viruses are often spread via annoying advertisement, which our extension blocks by default. Moreover, use of Adblock Plus considerably decreases the bandwidth usage. The overall browsing experience and working efficiency of the end users in networks using Adblock Plus is considerably increased. The users are not annoyed by pop-ups, blinking banners and misleading advertising, which helps them to focus better.

How to deploy Adblock Plus?

We are currently working on the best solutions for large scale deployments. These are, however, mostly dependent on the browser used.
