All Remote control in rating

Many companies supervise their employees while they are working - this is normal practice in all countries of the world. Usually they monitor their employees for compliance with work regulations, absence of prohibited programs at work, and technical condition of computers. When the whole office is remote, this need becomes even more critical, as well as high quality technical support.

The situation can be fixed by visiting the office outside of the office hours in person, but with Microsoft Remote Desktop the problem becomes solvable in a couple of minutes - all you have to do is log on to that PC remotely and download the unfortunate file.
