The latest version of NetOp’s remote control software will be unveiled at Gitex by the Gulf Commercial Group (GCG). With NetOp 7.6 customers can remote control Windows, Linux, Solaris and Mac workstations using a personal digital assistant (PDA), notebook, tablet or desktop PC.

A product of Danware, a provider of remote control software for professional users, the new software is seen to be the professional alternative to pcAnywhere.

“GITEX 2003 provides us with a great opportunity to exhibit NetOp Remote Control to the Middle East market. With a strong group of participants offering fabulous deals on a variety of IT products, together with computer hardware, software, peripherals, telecommunication products and multi-media options, we are looking forward to an enthusiastic response from consumers,” says David Smith, general manager of GCG’s engineering services division.

The product has been designed for enterprises with large, complex networks that want to reduce costs and increase efficiency by making it easier to remotely manage and troubleshoot a wide range of computers securely.

“Users of NetOp Remote Control know they can rely on Danware to be among the first to support the newest operating systems from Microsoft and other major vendors,” says Kim Macallan, Product Manager for NetOp Remote Control.

Security in the new version has been expanded, with the inclusion of directory services authentication and authorization via LDAP. This feature allows NetOp Remote Control to be integrated into, for example, existing Novell, Netscape and Sun environments.

“Security is a key reason why NetOp Remote Control is now the product of choice among professional users,” explains Kim Macallan. The new directory service features provide better security, allow extra flexibility and lower TCO by enabling customers to re-use their existing authentication and authorization infrastructure.”
