AnyDesk is the first remote desktop software that doesn’t require you to think about what you can do. CAD, video editing or simply working comfortably with an office suite for hours are just a few examples. AnyDesk is designed for modern multi-core CPUs. Most of AnyDesk’s image processing is done concurrently. This way, AnyDesk can utilize up to 90% of.
Conventional screen sharing and remote desktop applications are based on outdated compression techniques (X11, RDP, VNC) or on codecs that were designed for photos (JPEG) or video material (H.264). AnyDesk closes this gap by introducing DeskRT, a video codec specifically designed for graphical user interfaces. Exploiting the special properties of GUI image data (e.g. large areas of the same colour, high contrasts, sharp edges, repeating patterns in the time and spatial domain, or the linear translation of image contents), DeskRT is able to bring about very high image quality and low response times for the user.
AnyDesk uses TLS 1.2 based encryption, which is also used in online banking. Both ends of a connection are cryptographically verified. This makes it impossible for a stranger to fake your AnyDesk-ID and pretend to be you. So, if you always check the connecting person’s AnyDesk-ID, you’re on the safe side. Furthermore, you can review the current encryption mode, verification status and client fingerprint by hovering the mouse cursor over the lock icon in the status bar. All connections use AES-128 bit encryption in GCM mode by default. Licensed versions of AnyDesk provide even stronger encryption.
Whether you’re trying to share a computer that’s down the hall or on another continent, DeskRT comes fairly close to a real-time experience. Companies that are stuck with low bandwidth connections can still share data and swap files without experiencing unnecessarily long transfer times.
Strong security features ensure that unencrypted data will never leave your company’s DMZ. You can even use AnyDesk to set up a private enterprise network. Once you have one in place, the app allows you to deploy a custom desktop experience on every connected machine. This lets you interact with your customers in a way that’s consistent with your company’s branding.
Every member of your team can collaborate with one another using the simple communications panel. AnyDesk makes it easy to hold online meetings and share presentations with others. Multiple users can log in simultaneously to edit documents together, regardless of where they are in the world. There’s even a built-in file transfer module so you can distribute any kind of data imaginable.
IT professionals and users can record sessions, which is helpful for both training purposes and quality assurance reasons. Members of both groups can start the app without administrative privileges. It only takes a single 3MB download to get started. Those who are on the move can protect their remote desktop access software installation with a password.
Different licensing options are available for different sized firms. Small business owners can opt for a single-user license. A two-tiered multi-license plan is available for those running larger companies. Regardless of which plan you get, AnyDesk supports an unlimited number of endpoints. Users can deploy the cloud version of the app through any modern browser. The developer also offers standalone packages for both Windows and GNU/Linux.
By combining strong security features with a latency-free screen share app, AnyDesk has made it easy to collaborate with computer users everywhere.
