Vector Networks Announces PC-Duo v11

New version securely answers mobile worker needs for remote control and support

November 5, 2007 - Atlanta, Ga., Montreal and Sheffield, UK - Vector Networks today announced PC-Duo version 11, marking a transition completion of its popular remote control software solution to a more flexible and Internet-oriented architecture.

The addition of support for SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) authentication and an extension to the way in which remotely supported PCs interact with the Gateway server, together enable remote control connections to be easily established with PCs behind firewalls. Support staff can now reach out to users at a different corporate location, in a WiFi zone in an airport or hotel, or simply behind a personal firewall at a supported user's home. This functionality is of vital importance to enable efficient support services for today's increasingly mobile workforce.

Encryption options have also been enhanced with the addition of 256-bit AES, and the PC-Duo Enterprise Gateway now supports a range of encryption options from Triple DES through 128, 192 and 256-bit AES. With high-level encryption and the SSL implementation, PC-Duo v11 presents a robust and secure method for remotly controlling users' PCs and laptops without using a third-party Web server.

"The simplicity of use of the new platform will be a powerful attraction for organizations needing to implement a remote control solution quickly and with minimum training requirements, said Colin Bartram, VP Technology of Vector Networks. "System and security administrators will find the Gateway's support for security policy definition both powerful and easy to work with - including the connection to Active Directory OUs."

PC-Duo's new Gateway can be deployed in multiple locations to provide redundancy, and can be viewed and administered remotely. Administrators and security specialists can view real-time connection information, review remote control security profiles, review remote control activity logs, and play back actual remote control sessions.

PC-Duo v11 is priced from USD $234 for a 1-Master 1-Host pack and includes one year of support. Volume pricing and site licenses are available. A free 30-day trial download of PC-Duo is available at Vector Networks plans to make the new version available later this month.
