Greetings faithful RDPSoft customers, friends, and blog readers! We’re excited to announce the impending arrival of our newest product – Remote Desktop Canary™. We’ll be starting our beta testing program soon, so we’d love for you to sign up below to participate.
What’s Remote Desktop Canary, you may ask?
It’s our brand new Synthetic RDP Monitoring solution for Remote Desktop Services deployments. One of the most challenging aspects of monitoring the health of your Remote Desktop Services environment is measuring how quickly it responds to external and internal logins.
For instance, your Network Monitoring Solution may indicate that everything is working fine – your Connection Broker is up and running, your Remote Desktop Gateway services are operational, etc, but then users start to call in and complain about slow connection times, connections failing, etc.
The only real way to stay on top of this is to leverage what is known as Synthetic RDP Login Monitoring, whereby a full RDP connection using an RDP client is made into your environment, while various metrics are being measured on the client side. In other words, it’s a set of recurring tests you can configure to alert you when inbound RDP connections to your environment fail or take longer than normal to connect.
Until now, this sort of monitoring / RDP login testing has only been provided by a few vendors in the market – at an extremely high price. So, just like we did with our Remote Desktop Commander Suite, we’re bringing this technology into the market as an extremely affordable monthly or annual subscription. It will be available for purchase as a self-hosted solution or as a solution we host for you securely in the Cloud, whatever your preference may be.
What are you waiting for? If you want to check it out, fill out the form below to sign up for our beta program. Once you sign up, you’ll be notified when the next beta build is ready to download, install, and test. As a token of our appreciation, all of our beta testers will be provided with special discounts if they wish to purchase a subscription when Remote Desktop Canary is released in Q4 of 2019.
