For those looking to set things up in their new office, there’s a new solution that lets them control the software they use.
Cisco has partnered with the Office 365 group of companies to offer a remote setup that lets employees remotely control the systems they use on their work PCs, tablet and mobile devices.
The Office 365 Remote Access Program is a set of free, open-source software that lets people set up and manage a wide variety of remote desktop services.
Crispin Hopper, chief executive of Cisco Systems, said in a blog post that the remote setup is a “once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for business and individuals looking to build new work and personal computing experiences.”
“It’s a good way to start your enterprise journey,” he wrote.
Coffee, tea, wine and pizza are some of the other products that are offered through the program.
Hopper said that while the setup will allow remote desktop access to a limited number of customers, the majority of them will be able to log into their systems through a Cisco web portal and access their settings.
“Remote desktop users can control and administer their workstations with ease through the Office Mobile App,” Hopper wrote.
“The Office Mobile app can be accessed from any computer on your network or by visiting the OfficeMobile.com website.
The mobile app is accessible to any device running Android™ or iOS™ devices.”
The Office Mobility app is a web-based service that can be used to configure devices for remote desktop, and access work settings from any web browser.
The software allows users to configure the following features:Cisco Remote Desktop provides remote access to remote desktops and devices for Windows and Mac computers.
Crimson-striped text appears in the upper right corner of the screen to allow users to set permissions for remote access.
The service is also available in a limited capacity for users in the United States, and Canada, but it is not available to people in Australia.
Hopper said the remote system allows remote desktop to be accessed in two ways: from a desktop computer or a mobile device.
Users can access the remote desktop from the Office Mobility application or from a web browser, which allows the remote desk-side access from a PC.
Users can also use a keyboard or mouse to navigate to remote desktop locations on their PC or mobile device and access settings.
The remote system can be set up in minutes, Hopper added.
“The remote desktop can be configured to be configured as a single login account for all users, for which an additional password is required, and to be enabled on all devices running Windows 10,” he said.
The setup is available on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.
The Cisco Remote Desktop software can be downloaded from Cisco’s web site, and users can also visit the Office365 site and sign up for an account.
The software comes with no upfront fee, and Cisco is offering a free trial for new customers.
