NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

If you just want to connect to the server and do work (like Linux server-workstation type), NoMachine Enterprise Desktop is great, except for the keyboard mapping issue, which you have to correct in a setup of the remote server (almost) every time you log on. The graphics are smooth and fast. Overall response speed is very good, too. I like it.

Synmantec pcAnywhere is excellent when you require a secure remote connection, and you have enough computational power and internet bandwidth.

I haven't consulted with customer support, so I don't have an opinion. However, from the usefulness of the product, I think the support is also good

Alternatives Considered

NoMachine Enterprise Desktop

Again, the NoMachine is a real virtual terminal, and you don't need to install another Linux on your machine to fully exploit the X-terminal function. This makes the disk and memory usage of the client minimum. No issue on the screen. It is really good.

[We chose Synamtec pcAnywhere because] its embedded both-direction encryption exceeds the industry requirements.
