Introducing Free Web-Based Remote Access (Beta) For Backup Users

Introducing Free Web-Based Remote Access (Beta) For Backup Users

We are pleased to announce that backup users can now use web-based remote access (beta) for free! This feature is included in the backup license. This means you no longer have to pay for a separate remote access tool to connect to devices remotely — if you buy a backup license, web-based remote access is enabled by default.

Take advantage of a free, integrated remote access solution to support your customers.

What You Get With Free Web-Based Remote Access (Beta)

  • Fast and stable connections based on the WebRTC technology
  • Encrypted connection
  • Attended and unattended access
  • Multi-admin sessions
  • Concurrent remote access sessions in separate browser windows
  • Text chat
  • And much more.

After you click the "Connect" button, a new window will open. Then, just like in the desktop app, you choose whether you want to start a new session or join an active session. That’s it!
