Netop, one of the leading administration software providers, today released Netop Remote Control 9.5 with advanced functionality for more flexible, powerful and secure remote control, management and maintenance in a simpler to manage solution. With version 9.5, Netop Remote Control offers support for the Windows 7 operating system in all 32-bit and 64-bit versions as well as the high-end 64-bit server platform Windows Server 2008 R2.
Netop Remote Control 9.5 is equipped with the new ActiveX Guest, which offers users improved access options and integration capabilities. Companies can now embed the essential remote maintenance functions of the Netop Remote Control Guest into their own applications and Web sites. In addition, version 9.5 has expanded support for Intel’s vPro technology to more easily manage PCs that are equipped with this chipset from a central console.
"Remote Control is a business-critical solution for many companies whether they are in retail, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing or the public sector," said Kurt Bager, CEO of Netop. "With Netop Remote Control 9.5, we are now offering companies a solution they can use to achieve the best possible performance on a new platform such as Windows 7 and, at the same time, receive the maximum benefit from their technology investments." More secure, more flexible and more efficient support through WebConnect and ActiveX Guest Netop Remote Control 9.5 offers users improved access options and integration capabilities with the new ActiveX Guest, which comprises the core functions for management and control of the Netop Guest. Companies can embed the essential remote maintenance function of the Netop Remote Control Guest into their own applications and Web sites, for example in CRM applications or in Internet Explorer.
With Netop WebConnect, a Web-based remote control service, the Guest and the Host can connect simply and securely via the Internet from all possible locations without a company having to configure security-critical firewalls, routers or proxies. Netop WebConnect is an additional module for companies that want to offer their home-based and traveling users a Web-based remote control connection at the same security level as in the internal network. IT administrators can support their users or devices from any location and from any device, provided an Internet connection exists.
Netop WebConnect can now be more easily managed by administrators by identifying a domain administrator for each WebConnect domain created, creating separate sections for their customers. This enables hierarchical structures for more flexible account management and higher security.
Advanced vPro functionality simplifies centralized administration Netop Remote Control 9.5 has expanded support for Intel’s vPro technology. Computers that are equipped with this technology can now be more easily managed from the central Netop Guest console. In addition to remotely installing an operating system, editing BIOS and forcing a reboot, the IT administrator can take advantage of improved network scanning, an updated inventory module, improved diagnoses, adaptable commands and updated event descriptions.
