Remote connectivity from AnyDesk has been named a systems management software champion in the ICT Channel awards programme.
Announced 21 December, the Germany-based magazine aims to honour the best IT vendors and manufacturers in a public vote in which AnyDesk, IT-Scope, and c-entron were named the top three in their category.
“High-quality products and solutions are the basic requirement for a fruitful partnership between manufacturers and retailers, but there is much more to a long-term, trusting cooperation,” according to Lars Bube, writing for ICT Channel.
“This was particularly evident in this turbulent year, in which it was often an enormous challenge to be the most reliable partner possible for the sales channel, even in times of chaotic supply chains and economic turmoil.”
AnyDesk, responding on Twitter, said: “We are thrilled to have received the ICT Channel Award in the System House Software category. Thanks to everyone who voted for AnyDesk!”
The vendor unveiled AnyDesk version 7.1 in late October, with a view to enterprise requirements around remote access, support and connectivity wherever workers are located.
Philipp Weiser, chief executive and founder of AnyDesk, said that the latest version is adds an important layer of value even for complex customer organisation structures.
“Because of the expanded target market it provides, we can ensure further growth, which will help us finance the expansion of our product portfolio,” Weiser said.
AnyDesk 7.1 boasts improved systems administration, complemented by version II of the my.anydesk management console. Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is incorporated.
Version 7.1 also enabled user login directly in the application or online, with single sign-on for existing accounts including Google and Facebook. Users don’t need a new username and password, it said.
“AnyDesk is introducing these product changes based on analysis of user data, which will allow the company to not only provide greater security to end users, but also to further reduce irregular activity within the AnyDesk network,” according to the company announcement.
Downloads for AnyDesk’s remote desktop offering include sales in 190 countries representing some 120,000 customers — including the likes of Bosch, McDonald’s and Google, the vendor said.
The Germany-headquartered company in December also cut the ribbon of a new office in Florida, USA.
