PC Remote Control Anywhere, Anytime

With PROXY Pro 8.1, we’ve created powerful remote control software that allows helpdesk technicians to connect to workstations anywhere, anytime – even those behind firewalls and NAT, both on the LAN and off. Our solutions provide a level of flexibility and customization unlike any other remote control computer software. As you’ll see below, we’ve incorporated a robust feature list, which gives you and your employees remote access control at a granular level.
 

Safe, Secure Remote Control Software

Remote control software must be as secure as it is efficient, which is why we’ve developed our PC remote control solutions to give you access visibility and security at the highest level. To do this, we combine the 256-bit advanced encryption standard with strong authentication. We then add the ability to generate custom access lists, permissions, and audit reports – you and your support staff can easily see who connected to which machine, where, when, and for how long. Below, we’ve outlined our solution architecture, as well as which tools and features contribute to remote access, control, and management. Discover which PC remote control software would work best for your company.
