About Devolutions Launcher ** **

If you’ve been busy at work the last few weeks — or you’ve been touring the geekiest places in the world — you might not know what Devolutions Launcher is all about. Allow me to explain:

Devolutions Launcher is a lightweight and user-friendly tool that lets you easily open multiple simultaneous remote connections, directly from your Devolutions Password Server web interface. It saves time and streamlines operations. What’s not to love?

Currently, Devolutions Launcher supports the following session types: RDP, VNC, Apple Remote Desktop, and SSH. Our development team is hard at work and will be adding more session types in the near future.

Let’s not forget that when buying a Devolutions Launcher license, it’s a two for one! You buy one Devolutions Launcher license and it automatically comes with a User CAL!
