As I mentioned in my earlier post on enterprise deployment, Adobe AIR does support some enterprise configuration settings. There are three currently supported configuration items, specific to AIR:
- Enable/disable automatic AIR updates. If you’ve deployed AIR in a lock-down environment, you’ll want to disable automatic updates since users won’t be able to install them, anyway.
- Enable/disable the installation of AIR applications. If you want to limit users to applications already installed on their machine, you can disallow the installation of any additional AIR applications.
- Enable/disable the installation of AIR applications with unknown publishers. You might use this setting if you want to allow users to install applications, but only the less-risky applications that come from known publishers.
All of these options default to enabled. They can be configured in Windows-based enterprises via policy settings managed via Active Directory. For more information, see Administering Adobe AIR.
