Citrix debuts GoToMyPC remote access software built for MacThe latest version of GoToMyPC, announced Wednesday by Citrix Online, has been custom built for Mac OS X, aiming to better accommodate those using the remote access software on an Apple machine.
Through GoToMyPC version 7.0, customers will be able to have universal access to remote machines, whether they are running Windows or Mac OS X. According to IDC, Citrix is the global revenue leader for remote access software, with a share of more than 70 percent of the market.
"With this new release, we're giving Mac users what they've been asking for — a reliable remote access service built specifically for the Mac," said Brett Caine, general manager of Citrix Online. "For the large and growing Mac community, they can rest assured of finally having a remote access service that works as advertised from the most trusted name in the category."
GoToMyPC is a part of Citrix Online's Web-based software that includes GoToMeeting, GoToWebinar, and GoToAssist. Through GoToMyPC, users can access files, computer programs, e-mail and their company's network on a Mac or PC. Users install software and obtain access by logging in to the official Web site.
Users who want to access only a single computer can subscribe to the one computer plan at a cost of $19.95 per month, or save 25 percent and sign up for the $179.40 annual plan. A subscription for two computers runs $29.95 per month, or $269.40 per year. Professional and corporate plans are also available.
A subscription to GoToMyPC comes with no setup costs, free software and service upgrades, and 24/7 free technical support and maintenance.
