Overall Satisfaction with Wayk Now

I am a seasoned user of Devolutions' product Remote Desktop Manager which is excellent but also needed a lightweight and efficient tool to connect with locations around the world. Wayk Now has a very small footprint (under 5 MB), and installs very fast and allows for just a single click to connect to a remote station. It also integrates directly with Remote Desktop Manager so you can save your frequently used connections. It's a huge time saver and is very reliable.
  • It has a small footprint
  • Ease of setup and connections to remote computers
  • Very fast load time
  • Ability to set firewall rules on the client and host more efficiently
  • There is a no-cost version of the tool which has an immediate positive Return on Investment as it allows remote support users to efficiently assist users
Wayk Now has a smaller footprint and doesn't require signing to a licensing server.
It is well suited for any remote shadowing/connecting needed to perform. If you are needing to share drives from your location station to the host it does not yet allow for that.
