RealVNC Connect: new features and enhancements

It has been a great 2023 for our flagship software, RealVNC Connect, as it has received some great improvements. Let’s look at some of them.

Presence for RealVNC Viewer

Our Presence feature provides you with a convenient way to check which ones of your cloud-connected devices are ready to connect, simplifying your workflow. If you see a green icon, it means that the device is online and open for connections. A grey icon indicates that the device is offline and not accessible. It’s a straightforward feature, that should make many system administrators’ lives easier.

Session recording on On-Demand Assist

You can now document your On-Demand Assist sessions, facilitating your audit processes and training programs. All you need to do is click the ‘Rec’ icon on the toolbar while in a session. This will record what’s happening on your screen and save it to a location of your choosing.

Native integration for Duo Authentication

Protecting your sessions with the Duo Authentication method is now easier than ever before.

Our native integration lets you directly link RealVNC Connect with your Duo account, making it quicker to set up and easier to implement.

Session logging with Audit

This feature will spare your team from a lot of admin work, by giving them a 14-day running log of key account events. Complete with timestamps and dates, you have a fully auditable, real-time log of activity. This can be exported as a .csv file or via API Access.

The 2023 State of Remote Access Report

The State of Remote Access Report is based on a comprehensive remote access survey, with over 450 respondents.

This extensive survey deciphers the technologies used to enable and secure remote access. The resulting report offers valuable insights into the practical usage of these technologies, security protocols, and their effectiveness against prevalent cyberattacks. It’s designed to give you a complete overlook of the remote access, as well as insights that will keep you ahead of your competitors.

The 2023 RealVNC Raspberry Pi Prize

Thousands of people use RealVNC Connect in creative ways on Raspberry Pi devices every day. This competition was meant to recognize them and celebrate their ingenuity and creativity. It was open to anyone who had an original solution that included the use of a Raspberry Pi computer and RealVNC Connect software.

We received entries from around the world and have been extremely impressed by the creativity and ingenuity on display.

Six finalists were selected, and the judges have assessed their entries for originality & innovation, quality of design, impact, as well as the use of RealVNC Connect remote access software. The overall winner has received a prize of $1,000, while the runners up have received $500 and $250, respectively.

Shohreh Kia was the winner of the competition, with a solution that uses a Raspberry Pi connected to a camera to process real-time visual data from conveyor belts in recycling centers. Material types on the belts are identified using custom-developed algorithms. RealVNC Connect allows operators to operate the machines remotely in a much safer and healthier environment.

You can find out all about the winning solution, as well as the runners-up, on the RealVNC Blog

Happy holidays and a great 2024!

The ones discussed above are just some of the highlights of what has been a very busy, but at the same time very successful, 2023 for the RealVNC team.

We all want to thank you for using our products this year. We also want to take this opportunity to wish you Happy Holidays and a fantastic 2024! See you next year!
