Overview

Remote Desktop Manager lets you centralize all your remote connections, passwords and credentials into a unique platform that can be securely shared between users. Drive security, speed and productivity through your organization while reducing risks for your IT department. Join over 400 000 users in more than 140 countries who enjoy our remote connection management solution. Remote Desktop Manager is available in two editions: Free and Enterprise. While the Free edition is perfect for stand-alone users, the Enterprise edition is best suited for multiple users and teams.

Intuitive remote control
Use the mouse and keyboard (or touchscreen) in front of you as though they belong to the remote computer.

Send special keys and combinations such as Ctrl-Alt-Del, and copy and paste text in either direction. Type in confidence that characters will be interpreted correctly, whatever your platform, keyboard or input language.

Tried and tested performance
As the original inventors of VNC® technology, we know how to create a responsive screen sharing experience that's as good as being there.

Our patent-protected technology automatically optimizes to the speed of your network, and is especially effective in low-bandwidth and high-latency environments.

Cross-platform support
PC to PC and mobile to PC across Windows, Mac, Linux, Raspberry Pi, iOS and Android.

With an Enterprise subscription, you also get a key to install our VNC® 5.x software on a wide range of older and UNIX operating systems too, so your legacy hardware remains accessible.

Attended and unattended access
Connect whether remote computer owners are present or not.

Remotely access your own computers, monitor or patch equipment in the field, support customers or colleagues, and much more. Learn about the many ways our customers use VNC® Connect.

Direct and cloud connectivity
Our cloud service automatically brokers cloud connections between devices wherever they are.

So you don’t need to rely on a VPN, or conduct complex and insecure port-forwarding and firewall configuration.

With an Enterprise subscription, you can establish direct connections as well (or instead), perfect for locked down or offline network environments. For more information, start with our document cloud versus direct.

Pre-install or connect on demand
Add device access to your subscription, install VNC® Connect on every device you own or manage, and enable access by anyone at any time.

Alternatively, add instant support to your subscription and connect in seconds on demand, leaving no footprint. Or add both capabilities, and cover every remote access use case.

File transfer, printing and chat
During a session, you're not restricted to just interacting with the remote screen.

You can transfer files in either direction, print files directly to a printer where you are (rather than to a printer attached to the remote computer), and securely chat with other users connected at the same time as you.

Secure by design
VNC® Connect is built from the ground up with security in mind, to balance the control you need with the privacy that compliance requires.

Sessions are encrypted end-to-end using up to 256-bit AES encryption. Authentication is mandatory at the point of connection and never delegated to the cloud. Protect your computers with multi-factor authentication, single-sign on (SSO), granular access control and rich session permissions.

Multilingual support
VNC® Connect is available in French, German, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese as well as English, with more translations on the way.

Connect-Features-TeamManagement.png
Online team management
Manage remote computers, the people you invite into your team to share remote access with, and their roles and permissions from one central location.

Remote deployment
With an Enterprise subscription, you can deploy VNC® Connect in bulk, offline or remotely using your standard enterprise tooling.

In addition, you can configure VNC® Connect remotely using policy, and lock it down to prevent change.

Virtual desktops under Linux
With an Enterprise subscription, you can create virtual desktops on Linux computers.

This might be useful to enable visual remote access to headless Linux systems, or provide separate workspaces for simultaneous users of a shared resource.
