VNC® Connect features
Control at your fingertips. Our software is simple to use, which makes it even easier to deploy to everyone in your organization. There's no bloat, so you're not paying for features you don't need.
Intuitive remote control
Use the mouse and keyboard (or touchscreen) in front of you as though they belong to the remote computer.
Send special keys and combinations such as Ctrl-Alt-Del, and copy and paste text in either direction. Type in confidence that characters will be interpreted correctly, whatever your platform, keyboard or input language.
Tried and tested performance
As the original inventors of VNC® technology, we know how to create a responsive screen sharing experience that's as good as being there.
Our patent-protected technology automatically optimizes to the speed of your network, and is especially effective in low-bandwidth and high-latency environments.
Attended and unattended access
Connect whether remote computer owners are present or not.
Remotely access your own computers, monitor or patch equipment in the field, support customers or colleagues, and much more. Learn about the many ways our customers use VNC® Connect.
Direct and cloud connectivity
Our cloud service automatically brokers cloud connections between devices wherever they are.
So you don’t need to rely on a VPN, or conduct complex and insecure port-forwarding and firewall configuration.
With an Enterprise subscription, you can establish direct connections as well (or instead), perfect for locked down or offline network environments. For more information, start with our document cloud versus direct.
Pre-install or connect on demand
Add device access to your subscription, install VNC® Connect on every device you own or manage, and enable access by anyone at any time.
File transfer, printing and chat
During a session, you're not restricted to just interacting with the remote screen.
You can transfer files in either direction, print files directly to a printer where you are (rather than to a printer attached to the remote computer), and securely chat with other users connected at the same time as you.
Secure by design
VNC® Connect is built from the ground up with security in mind, to balance the control you need with the privacy that compliance requires.
Sessions are encrypted end-to-end using up to 256-bit AES encryption. Authentication is mandatory at the point of connection and never delegated to the cloud. Protect your computers with multi-factor authentication, single-sign on (SSO), granular access control and rich session permissions.
VNC® Connect is available in French, German, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese as well as English, with more translations on the way.
With some of our subscriptions, you can create virtual desktops on Linux computers.
This might be useful to enable visual remote access to headless Linux systems, or provide separate workspaces for simultaneous users of a shared resource.
