Internet Explorer Administration Kit 8
This documentation provides information about planning, creating, deploying, and managing custom installations of Microsoft® Windows® Internet Explorer® 8 using Internet Explorer Administration Kit 8 (IEAK 8).
Managing Web browsing technologies is critical as corporate intranets and extranets grow, and as most companies include a browser on their users' standard desktop. You can deploy a customized version of Internet Explorer to help your users or customers:
Increase productivity. You can configure or customize settings to give users access to specific intranet and Internet applications, ensure that all browsers have the same functionality, and make support easier.
Increase manageability and reliability. By creating custom packages, you can test components in your custom IEAK package with key, line-of-business applications to maximize reliability and reduce the cost of deployments, support, and upgrades. Also, you can centrally and dynamically manage your users' installation of Internet Explorer.
