Factor in the threats coming at IT from every direction, and you can see why IT pros have ample reason to be paranoid.

Submission + - Remote Access Tools for Windows and Mac Compared (infoworld.com)

snydeq writes: "InfoWorld's Keith Schultz provides an in-depth comparison of seven free remote access tools for Windows, four of which offer compatibility with the Mac.

I rely on remote access tools on a daily basis, and in most cases I need to be able to print to my remote PC. For someone that just wants to check their home/office email account or view documents from outside the office, all of the utilities here will work fine. But for those trying to get some serious work done, remote printing may be the deal breaker.' Many of the free tools under review offer paid or licensed versions for access to additional features."
