Pros and Cons

  • Wayk Now has 3 authentication methods to use when connecting in to a remote Wayk Now instance - Secure Remote Password (the app password), Secure Remote Delegation (the OS credentials which is used to gain elevated rights should they be required) and finally Prompt for Permission which is very handy if your client isn't IT literate so they just get a prompt to click on to authenticate with the app that way. From what I've seen in other remote assist apps, this is fairly unique.
  • Another new feature that I think gives Wayk a slight edge over the competition is a new graphics codec for the video feed from the client app called GFWX. Again its certainly a unique take on this problem of streaming the video to the client ends app. Basically it means that the image quality is a lot better for a lot less bandwidth because of the codec's compression.
  • The last point that Wayk Now does well is its integration with the other Devolutions products such as Remote Desktop Manager in which you can create Wayk Now session entries so that you can build up a DB of your clients/your own unattended Wayk Now instances that you can open from within RDM.
  • I will say that Wayk Now is still a very young product so it's still a bit rough around the edges, but Devolutions is updating Wayk Now with fixes and improvements and new features at an incredibly rapid pace. So it's worth sticking with it even if you feel its lacking in some areas.
  • We still do not have the ability to start a remote assist session from a web page/URL like you can with some of the competition's products. But I'm hoping that will come very soon.

Pros and Cons

  • Wayk Now makes it really easy to use by having only a few items in view.
  • It is fairly easy to configure and even allows connectivity through firewalls.
  • It maintains the connection, even over a relatively low bandwidth connection.
  • Requires an agent install on the remote computer (or a full Wayk install). Would like to see a tool that allowed someone to connect to my WAYK invite, and use the services remotely so that it is a true no-touch on the remote server.
  • Limited feature set (by design, but if you are looking for a full featured remote support product, this probably isn't it). Of course since this is by design it could be considered a pro.

Pros and Cons

  • Once installed on a computer or server (and connected to the internet), it's just a single click to connect to that server or computer.
  • Very lightweight application, just a couple of MBs.
  • The possibility to create a customer application with the company logo.
  • Sometimes firewall rules need to be created in order to make the connection work.

What is Wayk Bastion?

Wayk Bastion is a self-hosted remote access management server for machines running Wayk Agent. All remote desktop connections made by technicians using Wayk Client are authorized and monitored with corresponding session audit trails. Allowing remote access is one thing, but keep track of who accessed what, when and for how long is just as important for security.

Zero Trust Security Freedom

Devolutions Gateway relay servers configured with Wayk Bastion ensure independence from third-party cloud services while providing greater control on data traffic. Both Wayk Agent and Wayk Client use outbound connectivity to Wayk Bastion, such that no VPN or inbound traffic firewall exception is required. The Wayk Bastion zero trust approach to security simplifies remote access because the network location no longer matters.
