About NetOp Remote Control

Developed by Copenhagen, Denmark based Danware Data A/S, NetOp Remote Control provides users with a fast and secure way to fix problems on PCs and servers across the hallway or across the country. Users can view a remote PC's screen and control its keyboard and mouse just as if they were seated in front of the distant PC.

According to industry analysts, remote control software can reduce problem resolution times by more than half. In addition to supporting virtually every Windows platform, NetOp Remote Control now allows a user to remote control Linux and Solaris servers, even when using hand-held Windows CE devices or, for example, a Nokia Communicator. This degree of flexibility is proving increasingly valuable in business environments, especially where mobility is a key competitive parameter.

NetOp has also once again raised the standard for data security on remote control applications. Not only does it offer the strongest level of encryption available, a Security Server module is available for fault-tolerant centralized control of authentication and user rights and event-based audit trails. Speed remains a defining characteristic of NetOp Remote Control, even in situations where bandwidth is limited, such as in wireless and mobile environments. The application's tight modular code, outstanding screen transfer algorithm and rapid screen updates have earned NetOp numerous independent performance awards.
