Goverlan Remote Administration Suite Earns High Marks in Independent Third-Party Review

Miami, FL, Nov 08, 2012 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) -- PJ Technologies today announced that its Goverlan Remote Administration Suite has achieved outstanding performance when tested against Solarwinds' Dameware Remote Support v9.

Jonathan Hassell is an author, consultant and speaker on a variety of IT topics whose published works include Learning Windows Server 2003 from O'Reilly and appear regularly in such periodicals as Windows(R) IT Pro, PC Pro and TechNet Magazine. His independent review compared the features and functionality of Goverlan and Dameware v9 for managing & supporting small-to-midsize networks.

Hassell found Goverlan's interface much more intuitive and powerful than Dameware's with its familiar look and feel of Office(TM) 2007/2010 and task-based ribbon menu. In addition, he found that Goverlan's multi-machine view from a single window made it easy to monitor the screen activity and performance counters of a set of machines simultaneously. Dameware's tabular interface, which requires the user to toggle between machines, worked best when monitoring and performing functions on one machine at a time.

Another added benefit Hassell found in Goverlan is the ability to create and save frequently-used actions and targets to streamline daily tasks. "You can define and save scopes of users, computers, and groups, and regularly perform actions on them--such as searching for low disk space or listing local administrator group membership," he explained. He also found Goverlan's search feature to work better and faster at finding users/machines.

Hassell noted that Dameware integrated more fully with certain windows components such as Microsoft(R) Exchange, enabling simple Exchange mailbox property management, while Goverlan extended its functionality to Active Directory and Group Policy tasks.

In remote control, while both products offered advantages over Remote Desktop Protocol, Citrix ICA(R), VNC(R) and their proprietary protocol, Goverlan included additional, useful features such as being able to mask a user's screen while you are performing functions remotely and extended screen capturing options including video recording. Goverlan also fully supports virtual desktop infrastructure sessions, including remote shadowing of Microsoft's Terminal Services and Remote Desktop Services as well as Citrix's Xen(R) line of VDI products.

Finally, while both products support the Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) query language throughout and allow WMI to be used to target administrative actions, Hassel found Goverlan's WMIX utility much more useful when creating custom WMI queries. "It includes a WQL wizard that makes quick work of customizing WMI queries, and allows you to access even obscure classes and properties with a query that you can then export to other Windows administrative tools, like the Group Policy Management Console and Group Policy Object Editor. This can be a real boon to speeding up the creation of policies, and while DameWare supports WMI property searching for selecting machines, the Goverlan WMIX utility is much more full-featured and useful over time," Hassell elaborated.

Overall, Hassell found Dameware to be a good solution for small networks with very simple administrative needs, while Goverlan ranked as a superior option for networks with complex Group Policy deployments and multiple variants of machines. "It [Goverlan] is better at managing multiple machines at once, controlling them remotely, and extending powerful WMI queries and result sets into standard Windows administration tools," he concluded.

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
