Igiko- new approach to remote access
Remote access. What is it and why is it needed?
Remote access refers to the technology and techniques used to give authorized users access to an organization's networks and systems from off-site. It can be used by small and medium enterprises, online courses, remote workers, IT administrators and more…
Of course, there are a lot of remote desktop programs nowadays,
but to use most of them, you need to configure two computers at the same time, one of which must be located inside the corporate network, which is not always convenient. What if there will be a way for you just to open your web browser and open your work desktop. And there is- Igiko Management Tools.
What is Igiko?
Igiko Management Tools are a common set of web-based tools designed to provide users with features for remote access, management and monitoring of physical and virtual machines within a permission-based security model.

What are Igiko's main features and why it is better than its alternatives?
• Easy installation. All you need is a Windows machine with .NET Framework 4.5 installed. The IT environment you are going to work with can be domain or workgroup based.
• Modern web console. You only need a web browser to work with the console.
• All features are available for physical Windows machines and Hyper-V virtual machines.
• Configurable User Permissions. Domain administrators can configure what users will have what rights to specific objects.
• Basic Management. You can start, shut down, restart, pause, resume a host/VM, perform operations immediately or schedule them for a later time. You can also install or uninstall software remotely.
• Monitoring. Igiko continuously monitors the performance of all available objects. You can view each counter on dedicated graphs. Based on this data, Igiko can trigger alarms if some of the performance values get out of the range. These alarms are calculated on a per- user basis. Each user can configure their threshold values for the warning and error levels.
• Web Remote Desktop. Igiko has a built-in remote desktop gateway that allows you to establish connections with any computer or VM located within your local network.
Igiko may be called a new approach to solving problems of remote access as well as monitoring and management.
