Access a remote computer with user’s consent

Often the easiest and fastest way to provide remote desktop support is to install a remote access agent (ISL AlwayOn) on your client’s computer. This allows the subsequent support sessions to be launched anytime and from anywhere with no interaction required from your client, making the process fast and seamless. However, we still want the end-user to be the decision-making authority when it comes to granting access to their computer. The following steps, which should be performed on the client’s side, will help you configure ISL AlwaysOn in such a way that connection to a computer can only be established with the client’s approval.

Devon Air Ambulance: ISL Online contributed to an enormous productivity rise

In this post dedicated to our users, I’m happy to present Devon Air Ambulance, a team of big-hearted people who have flown over 25,000 lifesaving missions since its first mission in August 1992. With two helicopters, their specialist paramedics in critical care are able to reach patients in need of essential medical treatment quickly, often inaccessible by road, within 15 minutes. But saving lives comes at a cost. Every year the Charity needs to raise £5.5 million to run the service. To support their office staff and 18 charity shops around Devon, vital for their fundraising activities, DAA uses ISL Online remote desktop.

DAA two helicopters deploy between 35 to 50 incidents a week.
