The Best Remote Desktop Services

Remote Desktop Services

In 2012, Gallup reported that 39% of the American workforce worked remotely, at least part of the time. This number has now increased to 62% as of the first half of April 2020, [1] meaning remote desktop services have been in high demand.

What are remote desktop services? Remote Desktop services provide a user with secure access to a remote computer, meaning mouse and keyboard inputs are captured from the user’s device and sent over to the host machine they are connected to.

Remote desktop services come with plenty of benefits. The main benefit, especially with today’s society in the midst of a pandemic, is the ability to work from home. As long as you have access to an internet connection you can get connected from anywhere at any time! Remote desktop service connections are also secure as all the connections are encrypted. Adding to that, with remote desktop services you no longer need to buy licenses for multiples devices, as only a single software is installed on the host computer.

Now that we have been through some of the benefits of remote desktop services, Let’s have a look at the 2 most popular remote desktop software available today, to compare which one is more suitable for you or your business.

The first piece of software that will pop up in most people’s minds when they hear remote desktop is ‘Teamviewer’. Teamviewer was first released in 2005 and is compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS, Raspberry Pi, and more. Teamviewer today has over 2.5 billion installations, around 320 million active devices per year, and over 600,000 global customers.

Teamviewer is free for personal use, which means using it to complete personal tasks that you will not get paid from. However, you may have to start paying when it becomes clear you are using the software in a commercial setting. Teamviewer comes with 3 different plans for a commercial setting, Business, Premium, and Corporate.

  • A Business plan is suitable for 1 user and 200 accessible computers and will come at a cost of around $70 AUD per month.
  • A Premium plan is suitable for 15 users and 300 accessible computers and will come at a cost of around $140 AUD per month.
  • A Corporate plan is suitable for 30 users and a whopping 500 accessible computers and will come at a cost of around $285 AUD per month.

Another popular software is AnyDesk. AnyDesk was released in 2015 and is used in over 165 countries. There are 195 countries in the world, so that means only 30 countries have not connected to AnyDesk!

AnyDesk is also free for personal use and now also free for students, however, will need to be purchased for a commercial setting. AnyDesk comes with 4 different plans for a commercial setting, Lite, Professional, Power, and Enterprise.

  • The Lite plan will cost around $15 AUD and is suitable for freelancers or small businesses.
  • The Professional plan will cost around $30 AUD and is suitable for medium-sized businesses.
  • The Power plan will cost around $75 AUD and is suitable for large organisations.
  • The Enterprise plan is suitable for large organisations that need tailored solutions, for the price of the enterprise plan you will need to get in contact with AnyDesk for a quote.

To conclude, TeamViewer, AnyDesk, or any other remote desktop services out there, all have their advantages and disadvantages. For example, TeamViewer performs faster for file sharing during cloud access and AnyDesk performs faster for the remote desktop control aspect. At the end of the day, the decision comes down to which software more suits your business needs and your budget, so so have a think about what exactly your business will be using remote desktop services for.
