This year, we have made significant strides in further enhancing our high-performance remote access and remote support capabilities focusing primarily on security and efficiency for IT teams. Our users across industries like education, media & entertainment, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, and hospitality, have seen tremendous value in these new capabilities. Let us look at some noteworthy additions in 2023:

Endpoint Management

Splashtop Antivirus powered by Bitdefender

We introduced Splashtop Antivirus for enhanced endpoint security. Users can protect Windows and Mac computers with Bitdefender’s award-winning anti-malware technology, at unbeatable pricing. Seamlessly deploy and manage antivirus from within Splashtop, eliminating the need for additional solutions. Enjoy peace of mind as your devices stay continuously secure, with active monitoring that prevents viruses, malware, and other threats from causing harm. Learn more.

Background Actions

Significantly reduce end user interruptions by performing critical tasks in the background, without taking control of the remote computer. See all running apps and processes and end them using the Remote Task Manager. View and edit Windows registry. View the installed devices and enable/disable them, just like the Windows Device Manager. Use the Service Manager to see active services and control their startup behavior. Perform all these from within the Splashtop Business app or the web console. Learn more.

Additional Configurable Alerts

Set up alerts and get notified when hardware is added or removed on your managed computers.

Smart Actions

Further eliminate manual IT tasks by automatically running user-made scripts triggered by a customized alert.

Dashboard

Start the day with summarized dashboard to monitor and manage endpoints with ease. The dashboard provides at-a-glance details on endpoint count, online/offline status, OS types, and versions, along with mouse-over tooltips for more information. You can also track alerts, threats by endpoint, and Windows update status. Check the status of Splashtop Antivirus, including threat count, action summary, and virus definition versions. Additionally, keep an eye on upcoming and completed scheduled 1-to-Many Tasks.

Endpoint management capabilities are available with Splashtop Enterprise and Splashtop Remote Support products.

IT Service Desk

Session Transcript

Technicians and end users can now chat even before starting a remote connection. The session transcript also maintains a chronological audit log of the chat and actions executed during support sessions.

Web Support Form

The service desk offers multiple remote connection methods from technician-initiated ways using support links or 6-digit pin codes, to end-user-initiated ways using the SOS Call desktop application and now the webform. With the webform, technicians can design a personalized support form that can be seamlessly integrated into a support website. This enables end users to effortlessly initiate support requests whenever they require assistance which get automatically routed to the appropriate technician groups.

Customized Branding

Emphasize your brand by customizing the support app that your end users download with your own logo and colors.

Reporting

Users can now easily report on logged support session activity for audit and compliance.

Service desk support capabilities are available with Splashtop Enterprise.

Security and Manageability

Centralized Cloud Session Recording

Users can now enforce the recording of all Splashtop remote desktop sessions. Sessions are recorded in their entirety in the cloud, and technicians do not need to manually start or stop recording. Recordings are stored on Splashtop servers for 90 days and can be played back or downloaded via the Splashtop web console, for training and auditing purposes. The ability to download and playback recordings can be controlled based on roles.

ISO/IEC 27001 Compliance

Splashtop is now ISO/IEC 27001 certified! By implementing security frameworks like ISO and SOC 2, Splashtop empowers users with industry-leading remote access solutions while ensuring the highest standards for risk management, cyber-resilience, operational excellence, and safeguarding customer data.

Support for Larger Number of Computers

With our improved console, teams can now easily support more than 100,000 computers with the same great Splashtop responsiveness and speed.

Open APIs (Application Programming Interface)

Splashtop has built up an API delivery framework. Users can automate workflows and seamlessly integrate Splashtop into existing applications for smoother IT operations. Tasks like launching support sessions from within ticketing and chat systems and managing users, computers, access permissions, and groups can all be done directly using our APIs integrated into your own platforms.
