ISL Online, one of the leading providers of enterprise remote desktop software, has released ISL Light 4.1, the latest version of its secure remote support and remote access software.

Managing 20,000 remote computers from one place: ISL Light combines ease of use required by consumers, with administrative management capabilities required by IT. Empowered user management and a new grouping feature allow for a better remote access experience and make the lives of IT specialists easier.

"More than 300,000 world companies trust and use ISL Online software and some of our customers manage 20,000 and more remote computers from one place. In cases like this the possibility of grouping computers together in meaningful bundles means a big step forward in productivity," explains Jure Pompe, CEO at ISL Online. The operator can create one or more groups, name them and add selected remote computers to these groups. To grant access to the remote computers in a selected group, the operator can securely share a group of computers with other users.

Restart and resume Mac computers: The restart and resume feature, which has long been available for Windows users, is now also working with Mac computers. Installation and updates on remote systems usually require a technician to reboot the remote computer during a remote access session. The new feature lets a technician reboot a remote Mac computer and then automatically reconnect to the same session without interruption and adds a big productivity bonus for those working with remote Macs.

Additional features and improvements in ISL Light 4.1 include:

  • Toolbar optimisation for more efficient remote support
  • Keyboard icon for sending shortcuts (Ctrl+Alt+Del, Windows+L, etc) added to a toolbar
  • Optimised chat window
  • Security updates (newly implemented mbed TLS security library)
  • Notifications about the user account
  • Bug fixes and performance improvements

ISL Light is immediately available for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS devices. The described feature set may vary on the mobile operating system. The new ISL Light 4.1 is free of charge for existing ISL Online users. SaaS users will get the latest remote support tool automatically. However, if a user has the program saved to his/her desktop, it is recommended to download the new ISL Light 4.1 from ISL Online website and replace it with the old one.
