Announcing new releases of Netop Remote Control and Netop Mobile & Embedded

June 28, 2018

Netop Remote Control version 12.72 introduces the ability to white-list applications during a remote-control session. Remote control administrators can now restrict a remote-control session to one or multiple applications installed on a Host machine. With white-listed applications in place, a Guest user will only be able to view and control the listed applications, providing new levels of granularity in user access management.

White-listed applications enables a variety of new usage scenarios and simplifies compliance with data privacy and data security policies. Consider the example of providing a software vendor access to one of your production devices to troubleshoot an issue with their application. With Netop Remote Control application white-listing, you can provide the vendor secure remote access to the device, restrict their access so only their application is available, and fully log their activities during the session.

Currently available for Windows based devices, Netop intends to expand this capability to other operating systems (Linux, Mac, etc.) with a future release.

As a maintenance release, version 12.72 is free for customers who already have a valid 12.70 license. For additional details on this release, please refer to the Netop Remote Control version 12.72 Modification Notes.
