One Way to Save Money on your IT Budget

One area most businesses struggle with is support of remote users.  While commerical products exist that help solve this problem, they are not inexpensive, especially if you have a large number of remote users.

Free products such as VNC can be used as well, but if your users are protected by firewalls, configuring the network appropriately to allow access can be a hassle, and increase your security exposure.

We have found a free tool that takes VNC, an industry-accepted remote control tool, and adds a web-based proxy as a conduit for remote control of hosts from anywhere, with the permission of the end user.  It is available at http://www.zolved.com/remote_control.

I have personally tested the application while supporting our clients running operating systems ranging from Windows 98 to Windows Server 2008 with no issues.  If you need a way to reduce your travel expenses to remote computers or want to ditch expensive subscriptions to other tools, take a look at Zolved.  It may meet all your needs, and you certainly cannot argue with the cost.
