Symantec releases version 10 of pcAnywhere
The home network market is expected to balloon to US$13 billion by 2005, according to a recent report from Aberdeen Group Inc. As equipment grows more affordable, applications proliferate and large-scale service providers begin marketing new products and services, the number of networked homes will grow from 650,000 last year to 37 million by 2005, with much of the growth attributed to new homes built with structured wiring.
Symantec Corp. just released Version 10 of its PC Anywhere remote access software. Because opening remote connections can be risky, new security features such as mandatory password protection, an encryption wizard and new authentication types have been added, whether you use the software to troubleshoot teleworkers' remote systems or access files on the system at the home or office.
PC Anywhere Version 10 costs about $179 per seat.
