Work from home and work remotely with fast and secure remote desktop connections. Connect to your computer from any Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, or Chromebook device.

Working remotely, whether from home or another remote location, is becoming the new normal. Finding an effective remote connection tool is more critical than ever.

While there’s a lot you can do from your home computer, laptop, or mobile device, there are times when you need remote access to the computer in your office.

Perhaps you use proprietary software that’s only licensed to your office machine. Or your personal devices don’t have the computing power to run resource-intensive applications. Or maybe there are files located on your office computer that you can’t simply transfer to the cloud.

No matter your situation, there are many ways a remote connection to your work computer can be beneficial.

Remote Connection Software Use Cases

Working Remotely & Work from Home

Remotely access and control your work computer from any of your personal devices. Feel as if you were sitting in front of your office computer while working remotely. Access any file and run any program on your remote computer with ease.

Provide Remote Support

Remote connections to your managed devices enables you to monitor, manage, and support your endpoints. Remotely connect to your users’ devices to provide on-demand remote support the moment they need help.

Enhance Distance Learning

Enable students to launch remote desktop connections from their personal devices to school computers so they can remotely access lab computers while learning remotely.
