Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere (DRE)

We mostly use it on the "IT" side of things. Technically though, anyone who needs to physically remote into a machine can get access and use SolarWinds DRE.
  • Maintains session information for multiple reconnects
  • Supports multiple authentication types
  • Multiple options for connecting (RDP, MRC Viewer, VNC Viewer, etc.)
  • Cannot multi-select saved hosts (for mass deletion)
  • Sometimes randomly seems to "reset" saved connections
  • The ability to provide remote assistance is crucial for any IT department that supports end-users. Quick, efficient, and reliable, Dameware ensures that we can help our users wherever they may be working.
  • Users are confident that when they are on a call with IT, the problem will be resolved and they don't have to reschedule at a time when they're in office. This has lead to a workforce that is confident in creating tickets at all times, not just stopping by when they have a chance.
I haven't had to contact their support. However, SolarWinds in general has great customer support. I cannot imagine a specific product like this would be lacking.

SolarWinds Dameware Remote Everywhere is very well-suited to corporate environments where bandwidth is not an issue. I can remote into anyone's machine anywhere to assist them, and the faster their network connectivity, the faster I can get the job done. Dameware is ill-suited to slow bandwidth areas. Satellite offices or VPN users in bad mobile service areas have a hard time, especially if the service has not already been installed and configured. Damware will do this on its own at the first connection, but it can be slow and troublesome over these networks.
