Not familiar with DeepFreeze.
If the tablet is Android, there are few excellent products - Avast Mobile security, Dr.Web, Lookout and others.
Avast is free and includes AntiTheft.
The other two are free, but you need to get the paid version to have something equivalent to antiTheft.
As far as system misconfiguration - hard to do in Linux, but of course possible if you're rooted.
Avast also has a simple firewall, but requires admin rights, which in the Android language is called "rooting" = gain access to root, sort of like C:\Windows.
If your tablet is HTC, or Windows, or ... I have no idea, sorry.
