Now with Netop Remote Control 9.2, companies can maximize their investment in this innovative functionality by expanding their remote maintenance capabilities.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
Netop, a leading provider of software solutions for desktop management, unified communications, advanced training and instruction, today launched an update of its Netop Remote Control. Now with support for Intel's vPro and Active Management Technology (iAMT), IT administrators can control computers remotely easier, safer, faster and more securely than ever before.
One of the first solutions available that takes full advantage of the Intel vPro-Technology (iAMT) range of functions, Netop Remote Control 9.2 allows IT administrators to access a computer equipped with iAMT even when it's switched off -- as long as it is connected to a power source and a network. This means that they can conduct maintenance on PCs outside of business hours or when the operating system has failed. With this new functionality, IT administrators can power a computer on or off, enter and change BIOS settings or install an operating system from the Guest computer.
"Many companies already have computers equipped with Intel vPro and Active Management Technology, but are not yet able to take advantage of this new technology," said Kurt Bager, Netop CEO. "Now with Netop Remote Control 9.2, companies can maximize their investment in this innovative functionality by expanding their remote maintenance capabilities."
Faster and Easier Connections With Netop WebConnect
Netop Remote Control 9.2 also offers organizations faster, easier, secure remote access. A new add-on module, Netop WebConnect, allows IT administrators to easily connect to any Host computer no matter where they are. Netop WebConnect does not use third-party servers, giving a company total ownership of its own data and security. Using Netop Web Connect, IT administrators can establish connections through the Internet and beyond network borders, without having to make security-critical changes to firewalls, routers or proxies.
High-Speed Connections Now Possible With Improved HTTP
Now with a newly designed HTTP protocol implementation, Netop Remote Control 9.2 allows companies to increase data transfer speed from two to 10 times, depending on the task and connection. The upgrade is fully compatible with older versions of Netop Remote Control. However, the maximum connection speed can only be attained with the new version.
Expanded Support for Windows 64-bit Platforms
When doing remote maintenance over the Internet, IT administrators will also discover that Netop Remote Control 9.2 is up to 10 times faster than before and provides full support for all 64-bit Windows versions. In addition to the Guest and Host modules, this includes the security server, the name server and the gateway. Based on just one application, Netop Remote Control provides access to all leading platforms - including Windows, Windows CE, Linux, Mac, Solaris and OS/2.
Netop Remote Control 9.2 is available now from Netop partners. For more information about Netop's software solutions for desktop management; unified communications and collaborations (UCC); and advanced education and teaching, visit http://www.netop.com.
