If you’re one of those that often access a specific unattended remote computer, we have a great tip for you. It will help you speed up the process of connecting to the remote computer and it will optimise your remote access experience.
When adding a remote computer to your ISL AlwaysOn list, the usual practice is to send an invitation email to your client, who opens the provided link and installs the ISL AlwaysOn agent onto their computer. But, did you know that ISL AlwaysOn supports a quick and easy way of adding a remote computer via the 12-digit code?
A great deal has happened in 2017. We’d like to take a special opportunity to look back on all things we have learned and achieved over the last twelve months and present it to you in this “Year in review” post.
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.
These days, our Server License users are receiving automatic system messages from their ISL Conference Proxy servers: “Authenticode will expire on 2018-01-29”.
What should Server License users do about this?
All system administrators who manage the ISL Online Server License in their organisation are recommended to follow the procedure described below and remove the automatic system notification about certificate expiry in order to solve this issue. However, this notification compromise the security of your system.
Also in 2017 ISL Online stayed true to their promise and recorded an impressive 99,9814% uptime, which again exceeded the 99,95% uptime guaranteed in the SLA. Looking at the past 8 years ISL Online kept the average cloud service availability at enviable 99.9823%.
Security is the key criterion on a checklist for anyone looking for remote desktop software. Before you start using a new remote desktop tool, introducing it to your company and clients, you want to make sure that it’s secure like a fort.
Do you know what the tallest building in the world and ISL Online remote desktop software have in common?
The answer is Emaar Properties. Emaar, located in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is one of the largest real estate developers in the UAE and is known for various large-scale projects such as developing Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
Emaar is also an ISL Online customer which uses remote desktop software to offer a better customer service.
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.
