Danware announced the release of NetOp Remote Control 7.5. With this new version, the vendor is boasting support for the widest range of operating platforms in the industry, enhanced security, and an array of new features to ensure fast, simple, and secure remote control for global enterprises.
In addition to supporting virtually every Windows platform, NetOp Remote Control 7.5 allows a user to remotely control Linux and Solaris servers, even when using handheld Windows CE devices or, for example, a Nokia Communicator. The company says that this degree of flexibility is proving increasingly valuable in business environments, especially where mobility is a key competitive parameter.
"Most of our blue-chip customers need to support a heterogeneous IT infrastructure built on both new and legacy systems, plus an increasing number of hand-held mobile devices," says Kim Macallan, Product Manager for NetOp Remote Control. "They choose NetOp Remote Control because they know it will let them quickly and easily control systems our competitors simply don't support."
"Remote control is now being deployed worldwide as a complementary component of management and help desk solutions," says Stephen D. Drake, Program Manager at IDC. "Cross-platform support and security are essential features for enterprise-grade remote control necessary for integration in core management solutions."
With the new release, Danware says it has raised the international standard for data security on remote control applications. Not only is the product designed with strong encryption, but a Security Server module is also available for fault-tolerant centralized control of authentication and user rights as well as event-based audit trails.
Among the new features for Netop Remote Control 7.5 is an inventory function designed for asset management. The inventory feature enables details of installed hardware and software to be gathered remotely, saved to an XML file, and displayed in a hierarchical view or exported to external applications for processing. Other new features include a new host user interface, XML configuration, setup wizard, and mouse wheel support.
