DameWare Announces Secure Over-the-Internet Capability for IT Pros to Support End-Users Around the World

With Security Being a Top Concern, DameWare Remote Support 11.0 Allows IT Pros to Support End-Users Both Inside and Outside the Firewall Without the Need for Third-Party Hosting, Providing a Secure and Highly Affordable Solution for Easily Supporting Glob

AUSTIN, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- SolarWinds (NYSE: SWI), a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today announced its remote IT administration solution now empowers IT Professionals to securely assist end-users around the world -- all that's required is an Internet connection. DameWare Remote Support 11.0's new central, self-hosted server enables secure, over-the-Internet remote support sessions on a global scale, serving the ever-changing needs of organizations from small businesses to growing enterprises at an affordable price for all.

With workforce mobility being the new normal, DameWare Remote Support enables IT Pros to connect to Mac OS X, Linux and Windows computers anywhere to provide secure remote administration and support. With its powerful new server hosted within the customer's own IT environment, DameWare allows IT Pros to control the security of their data from end to end, preventing it from passing through a third-party server and providing support to end-users both inside and outside the firewall.

"Whether in a small business or a global enterprise, employees of all organizations are going to need secure remote IT support outside the firewall while they're on the go, home sick, or even on vacation," said Chris LaPoint, VP Product Management, SolarWinds. "With DameWare's new over-the-Internet capabilities, an IT Pro can reach end-users' workstations regardless of where they are in the world and ensure the security of those remote support sessions."

To understand the far-reaching extent IT Pros have been tasked to provide remote support, SolarWinds asked its IT Pro community thwack to share examples of the most far-flung places and unique spaces they've helped their end users. Over 135 responses were collected, including:

  • From beneath a car mid-oil change
  • From Alabama to the Australian Outback
  • From a cruise ship in the Caribbean to West Virginia
  • From a casino in Las Vegas to Manchester, UK
  • From the pyramids in Cairo to London
  • From Argentina to Mexico City

In addition to secure remote sessions, DameWare Remote Support's new centralized architecture also gives IT Pros advanced management functionalities to address the scalability challenges of a growing enterprise and the end-users it must support. DameWare admins can now create and share host lists for quick remote access to frequently used computers as well as manage all DameWare licenses and users from the central server.

DameWare Remote Support Highlights

  • Remotely control Windows, Linux and Mac OS X computers
  • Start, stop and restart Windows services without having to use remote control
  • Access Windows computers from iPhone or iPad devices
  • Manage users and groups from multiple Active Directory domains

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself?

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
