Windows Remote Access Software

A real-time, remote control solution for Windows operating systems

Windows is the most widespread operating system in the world. With over 90% of the market share in personal computers worldwide, it’s best-known for its desktops, laptops and servers - but it’s also a big player behind the scenes. Hundreds of millions of devices run on Windows: handheld, mobile, point-of-sale, etc.

Netop remote access software is compatible with nearly every version of Windows to date, including unattended systems and mobile devices, on both sides of the remote support session.
