Hi all,

We are currently using Dameware in our company for remote administration. I have been tasked with seeking out an alternative product, paid for or free, the requirement is it being effective.

Anyone with any experience with other products? names of the product?  we need to admin a complete windows network so are looking for a tool with a fairly comprehensive tool set

Thanks

Give your grad a cloud of their own!

With up to 8TB of storage, give your favorite graduate their own personal cloud to centralize all their photos, videos and music in one safe place. They can save, sync and share all their stuff, and automatic photo backup helps free up space on their smartphone and tablet.
