ASG-Remote Desktop

Best for users that have many desktops or servers they need to login to. Great in my environment of multiple clients and the need for fast login and resolution of their issue. If you have a large infrastructure or multiple clients, this is a product you need!

VNC Connect

Assistance with existing software works well.I have been asked to update software on a client's computer which requires a supervisor intervention and have not been able to install the software remotely without user intervention as my screen blacks out whenever the requirement of supervisor intervention is required by the remote computer. If there is a reboot required as part of the installation, the connection has to be re-established.

Pros

  • Organize remote desktop connections
  • Provide easy and fast connections
  • Backup and restore configurations
Tina Cline profile photo
  • VNC connections are very easy to understand and use.
  • Ease of operation for less computer savvy staff makes for a good software to deploy on many different levels of PCs and laptops.
  • The cost of VNC is not prohibitive.

Cons

  • Can be overly complicated at first, but you can add into the features as you build your organization skills
Tina Cline profile photo
  • More shortcuts if you are using a connecting tool inside another tool.
  • A more immersive tutorial, if the users do not know how to use it, figuring it out can be hard and frustrating

It doesn't have many features, so whatever features there are, are pretty easy to understand.

The training is very informative, quick and to the point. All of the details one would need are present so the user doesn't have to go searching for additional information just to use the application. The layout of the training was also neat and concise, some of the other training sessions for other companies I've done in the past were confusing and not well thought out, this one is much more superior

Alternatives Considered

ASG-Remote is very flexible and with so many options available it makes the configuration you want for your setup super simple. Other products do not offer the extra features for database and reporting. As well, it offers all the connection types you can possibly think of. The ability to automate tasks for regular servers and workstations is amazing!

I have used TeamViewer and while both are great programs, VNC just seem more minimalist and tuned to doing EXACTLY what I need it to do.

Return on Investment

  • Simple use and easy to set up
  • Fast connections means faster service to your clients/users
  • Easy to share across other users for connections
Tina Cline profile photo
  • VNC's very useful for quick, remote access of business critical machines where other access methods either cause software conflicts, interrupt operations or lock out the local user whilst you are remoted in.
  • Also using LDAP authentication, it's possible to grant or restrict access to subsets of machines in a granular fashion using our existing AD structures and role groups, plus it's one set less of static passwords to have to worry about changing. Great from an information security point of view.
  • We've reduced the amount of effort required for support departments to connect remotely and analyze problems, as they can see exactly what the user sees, in the same session, whilst they're on the phone.
