Exceed TurboX Remote Access Software Features High performance remote graphics: Finding a fast and high-quality remote access solution for graphical applications is a top priority for many businesses. Engineers, doctors and designers are among the list of professionals that require extremely accurate display of applications over the WAN. An incorrect diagnosis or a misplaced wire in a CAD model could result in a mistake that costs millions of dollars and affects lives. Exceed TurboX offers unrivaled pixel-perfect drawing and precise color rendering, increasing productivity and the quality of work.
Suspend and resume: With ETX, users can manually suspend their sessions at any time and resume them on any computer. By giving users the ability to suspend sessions at will, ETX grants user’s freedom of movement and unties them from physical computers.
Software crash protection: ETX helps companies stay productive by shielding their users from the frustration of lost work due to network failures. ETX detects network connection disruption and automatically suspends sessions. ETX keeps applications in the user session running even if the user is disconnected from their application servers.
Ultra-low bandwidth usage: Exceed TurboX is up to 90 percent more bandwidth efficient than traditional X servers, thanks to the highly efficient ThinX Protocol. ETX adapts to a variety of network conditions while ensuring high quality remote display.
Supercharged sharing: In a globalized economy, projects require collaborative work from a team of international members. With Exceed TurboX, users from around the globe can share projects and ideas in real time over the internet, by taking advantage of desktop and application sharing for both Windows and X Window sessions.
Centralized administration and user management: Administrators can monitor and manage Exceed TurboX from any location using a web browser on any computing device. Exceed TurboX keeps users and access management in a centralized database. It reduces the administrative headaches of managing disparate user communities and empowers administrators to control application access on the user and group levels.
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.
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.
VNC® Connect is available in French, German, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese as well as English, with more translations on the way.
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.
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.
