Remote Control

Remote control is a technology that enables IT administrators and end users to secure remote support and access to enterprise endpoints (such as end-user devices, servers or virtual machines). Enterprise-class remote control uses a connection broker and identity management system integration to enhance security. Remote control is not to be confused with remote desktop services (such as desktop virtualization) or remote access (such as virtual private networks).
