Chicago –October 25, 2006 –NetOp Tech Inc., a fully owned subsidiary of Danish IT company, Danware A/S, today launched in the United States NetOp Mobile, remote control software for supporting mobile devices used by companies with a field workforce. The new software is an extension of Danware’s NetOp Remote Control software and provides enterprise- level remote control for mobile devices including corporate helpdesk support, remote administration and maintenance.
NetOp Mobile allows corporate IT and helpdesk management to remotely control and support the mobile devices being used by field personnel. It can be used for securely transferring files, updating software, messaging and technical support. Field workers can request help with a single button.
“We see NetOp Mobile as a solution for companies with mobile staffs such as sales organizations, trucking companies and healthcare organizations,” said Jason Vargovchik, country manager for NetOp Tech. “This is one of the few software products available that can establish a connection to devices running on cellular networks and it can be an invaluable tool for companies trying to manage large numbers of mobile devices.”
The new remote control software works with mobile devices using Windows CE 2003 and Windows Mobile 5.0 and can be remotely controlled from a wide range of platforms using NetOp Remote Control Guest, including Windows, Linux, Solaris, OS/2 and ActiveX.
IT and telecommunications analyst firm IDC predicts that worldwide the number of mobile workers will grow from 650 million to 850 million by 2009 *). That means more than a quarter of the global workforce will be mobile. Each one of these workers will need to communicate with their corporate headquarters and will need wireless mobile devices to do just that. Companies will increasingly need tools to support these devices to keep employees connected and the flow of information uninterrupted.
Scalability is a key feature of NetOp Mobile allowing companies to add additional devices as needed. The number of phone book entries and concurrent connects is only limited by disk space and memory, respectively. NetOp Mobile generates little network traffic and uses a non-polling communication engine which only transmits if something changes or if a command is issued –so it is not a drain on network resources.
“NetOp Mobile is complete, scalable and secure remote control software for IT professionals,” said Vargovchik. “We have priced this product very reasonably and have provided some excellent early incentives, so we believe the market will respond well to this new offering.”
