RealVNC launches VNC Connect at SpiceWorld 2016

First remote access provider to offer hybrid cloud and direct connectivity in a single product

November 2, 2016, Cambridge, UK:  RealVNC, the original developer and provider of VNC remote access and control software, has today announced the release of a major new remote access product called VNC Connect.  Launched at the SpiceWorld IT Conference in Austin, Texas, VNC Connect combines the convenience of a cloud service with the flexibility of direct connectivity, giving organizations the ability to optimize a remote access strategy to meet the needs of their business.

Developed in direct response to customer demand, VNC Connect opens a much larger remote access market opportunity for RealVNC. The new product will allow companies to benefit from reduced support costs, improved service quality, better system uptime and will help to mitigate the risks associated with on-site service activities.

With VNC Connect, customers can choose to use cloud, direct or “hybrid” connections in order to match specific application, security and performance requirements. A brand new user interface also allows them to discover, manage and establish their cloud or direct connections faster than ever before.  The web-based account gives complete control for managing the users and computers that form an organization’s remote control estate. 

VNC Connect is licensed under a subscription model with three clearly defined audiences:

Home subscription

  • Easy-to-use remote access for friends and family.
  • Free for non-commercial home use.

Professional subscription

  • Feature-rich and secure remote access for departments and small businesses.
  • Starting at $40 per year for one computer.

Enterprise subscription

  • Powerful, flexible and ultra-secure remote access for the enterprise.
  • Starting at $55 per year for one computer.

“The release of VNC Connect is a major milestone for RealVNC and we are very excited about the market potential of our new product” explained Adam Greenwood Byrne, COO, RealVNC. 

“Feedback on VNC Connect from our beta customers was extremely positive and we are already speaking with technology partners about rolling out the new capabilities across their own product lines.  From a business perspective, the new capabilities of VNC Connect will also significantly expand our addressable market for remote access.”  

“We used detailed customer and market research to create three clearly targeted subscription levels for VNC Connect and to ensure they are very competitively priced.  Our research has shown that many of the remote access offerings in the market are unnecessarily complex and bloated, creating confusion for potential customers and a poor perception of value.  Our goal with VNC Connect is to create a streamlined, highly competitive offering with compelling business benefits that is easy for customers to understand. We’re confident that VNC Connect will hit the mark.”
