Apple has released the third version of the Remote Desktop software.
The newly designed software includes more than 50 new features that deliver improvements in software distribution, asset management and remote assistance. It also provides the user with a faster file copy speed and the ability to hide desktop while it is controlled from a remote distance.
The third version of Apple Remote Desktop software integrates with Mac OS X 10.4 features for searching across multiple remote desktops.
Monitoring remote systems through Dashboard widget, task templates for replicating tasks across multiple machines, application usage reports and a 128-bit AES encryption between Remote Desktop and client machines are features also included in Apple’s software that the user can take advantage of.
The software is going to retail for $299 for managing up to 10 systems and $499 for managing an unlimited number of systems.
