Secure by design

Offer secure remote access at scale throughout your organization with confidence. VNC Connect® features enterprise-grade security that protects against external threats, while a suite of admin tools gives you complete control of access across all devices.

Security is at the core of our solution – by design, we treat every connection as though it originated in a hostile environment. To safeguard against unsolicited access, an incoming connection must always be authorized from the end-user device on the Server side. And to ensure total privacy, sessions are always end-to-end encrypted at up to 256-bit.
