Usoris Systems releases Remote Utilities Version 5.2 in two license formats, with a home personal use license available for free
April 27, 2012 - Usoris Systems is releasing Version 5.2 of their product, Remote Utilities (RUT). Marat Magomedov, Usoris CEO, highlighted the importance of this new version, "Targeting the corporate market segment that requires remote administration software remains our main objective. The features in this new update make Remote Utilities even more powerful for network administration. In addition, we decided to offer a free edition of our product for personal use. Home users can now enjoy Remote Utilities absolutely free and without any annoying banners or messages."
Notable new features
An Active Directory tree browser. The RUT-Viewer address book window now shows the actual Active Directory tree and lets the user connect to any computer. The user can use the default domain controller for the network or can specify a different domain controller using a special dialog window.
Different user permissions for a single RUT-Host. This feature is available for the Remote Utilities security system and WinNT security.
An "Ask user permission" option in RUT-Host settings. If this option is set, a message is displayed to the remote user, allowing the user to accept or decline a remote connection. This directly addresses the concerns of some users who were uncomfortable with the unrestricted access power of Remote Utilities. With this new option, remote users can be sure that they control access once the "Ask user permission" option is checked in Settings.
The ability to launch and work when the remote computer is in Windows Safe Mode. The remote PC is available for remote connection after a reboot in Safe Mode.
Changes to the licensing system
Remote Utilities is now available in two editions, Enterprise (full range of features) and Free (limited features and for personal use only). The Free edition is perfect for helping friends and relatives with problems, but doesn't have the features needed for business use like the new "ask user permission," multiple user accounts for a single host, and inventory manager. Enterprise users can unleash the full power of Remote Utilities needed for business operations at a very reasonable license rate.
Alex Ter-Osipov, Technical Director, emphasized, "We used to have to have a long intervals between updates, with minor updates more frequent than major ones. This new version marks a decision to break our roadmap into smaller 'chunks' and make updates more frequently, with less new features per update. This strategy will help us become more flexible and responsive to customer feedback."
Remote Utilities includes important user benefits like a lifetime license, the ability to transfer a license, firewall bypass, built-in remote installation and configuration tools, an on-premise mediation server and the option of a no-installation, no-configuration remote host.
