What is Remote Desktop Manager for iOS?




Remote Desktop Manager for iOS allows for storing and sharing of remote connections, credentials, and sensitive information. Used in combination with a compatible Client application, Client capabilities are extended to create an Enterprise wide high-end data store.


Remote Desktop Manager acts as a wrapper and a manager around existing technologies, and requires no proprietary protocols. All communications are established using either an external library or a third party software.


The Remote Desktop Manager platform is composed of multiple applications designed to manage all your connections and credentials.


Remote Desktop Manager for iOS is a window on your system that is actually managed by your desktop software, Remote Desktop Manager Windows or Mac editions.
