Laurence Cadieux

Hello! My name is Laurence Cadieux, and I’m a Communication Coordinnator here at Devolutions. My role includes overseeing the content strategy and development of our blog, managing the content and communication for our VIP advocate platform “Devolutions Force,” and working closely with our PR partners around the world. I also handle our off-site content opportunities (magazines, journals, newspapers, etc.). Academically, I have a bachelor’s degree in marketing. When I’m not working, I sing in a band, and I enjoy watching my favorite movies again and again. I also love cooking, and during the pandemic, I became a bread expert — I can now bake the most amazing key lime pie on earth (if I do say so myself!). Plus, I recently discovered LEGO and there is no turning back — I’m hooked! I’m always happy to help, and you can reach me directly at

Recap of parts 1–6

Part 1: Introduction and welcome

The event kicked off with an introduction and welcome from two of Devolutions’ longest-serving team members: our CEO and founder, David, and our Chief Revenue Officer, Max. The key theme they focused on was “expansion”:

  • Expanding the size of our campus through a major building project.
  • Expanding the size of our workforce.
  • Expanding our roster of solutions and companion products for SMBs.

David and Max also discussed how most of our users start their journey with Remote Desktop Manager, and then expand their infrastructure by adding other Devolutions products such as Hub Business for password management, or Devolutions Server for privileged access management (PAM) and secure gateway access. Check it out below:

Part 2: The Devolutions PAM platform: Productivity at its best

In part 2, Maurice, our VP Product, and François, our Product Manager for Devolutions Server, explored the dynamics of PAM in Devolutions Server and our other products. Maurice and François also discussed how we are greatly enhancing user productivity by unifying our PAM solutions into a single new product. Check it out below:

Part 3: Devolutions Hub: Powerful password management for IT pros

In part 3, Maxime, our Product Manager for Devolutions Hub, discussed Hub's latest version (2024.1) and demonstrated some of the key enhancements including the revamped look and feel of the web interface, the new self-hosted service, and more. Check it out below:

Part 4: Remote Desktop Manager: The ultimate IT toolbox for your daily workflow

In part 4, Marc, our Subject Matter Expert, dove into the latest version of Remote Desktop Manager (2024.1) and highlighted some of the most exciting upgrades, including the new terminal command palette, the new script dashboard (which many users are thrilled about!), AD sync and SSH key improvements, and more. Check it out below:

Part 5:  Devolutions Gateway: Securing access to network resources with speed

In part 5, our Chief Technology Officer, Marc-André, looked at the architecture and design of Devolutions Gateway, which provides authorized just-in-time access to resources in segmented networks. Marc-André also highlighted our new Devolutions Gateway standalone product, and explained the use cases for choosing this option vs. the “full package” with Remote Desktop Manager, Devolutions Server, and Devolutions Hub. Check it out below:

Part 6: Roundtable Q+A

In part 6, our panel of experts — David, Max, Marc-André, and Maurice — took questions from attendees. This interaction is always one of the most interesting aspects of Devolutions Central, and this year’s version was one of the best ever! There was a great mix of questions about our products and strategy, including:

  • How well does Devotions Gateway scale, and would it work for approximately 40,000 concurrent users?
  • Is it possible to deploy the Devolutions Gateway standalone in a container, and is a Linux version available?
  • Is it still necessary to get a separate Devolutions Gateway license in order to run it on a different OS?
  • Is it possible to restrict RDP access in the Remote Desktop Manager environment?
  • Which providers are Devolutions planning on supporting natively in 2024?
  • Will Devolutions be offering any formal training and certification roadmap for the upcoming year?
  • What are Devolutions’ key targets and focus in 2024?
  • What are the main differentiators between what Devolutions offers vs. what is also available in the market?

These are just some of the many interesting questions that our panel received. Check it out below:
