Buyer's Guide
Remote Access
September 2022
Find out what your peers are saying about Parallels, TeamViewer, Microsoft and others in Remote Access. Updated: September 2022.
632,779 professionals have used our research since 2012.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability is great for small or medium-sized businesses. However, it may not scale well for enterprise-level entities. 

Ten people are currently using it in my organization. They are IT specialists. 

We do not have plans to increase usage. 

How are customer service and support?

I don't get support from Parallels.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've used other solutions, and this product is better. 

I did previously use Citrix XenApp. It's complex in comparison. This one is more simple and user-friendly.

How was the initial setup?

The product offers a very simple setup process. It is not very complex. 

I'd rate it a five out of five in terms of ease of implementation. 

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The solution is pretty much in line with other solutions. However, Citrix is much more expensive.

I'd rate it a four out of five in terms of affordability. While it's relatively affordable everywhere else, in Iran the licensing is quite expensive. 

What other advice do I have?

We have a private cloud, on-premise, as our deployment setup.

I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. It's been very good so far. 

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
