Symantec pcAnywhere 12.5 is ideal for helpdesks, VARs, and system integrators that need an efficient, versatile way to support users in multiple locations.

pcAnywhere continues to provide support for the latest in an array of operating systems. You can connect to and manage computers running Microsoft Windows, Linux, Mac OS X Universal, or Microsoft Pocket PC.

New security settings maintain the status of Symantec pcAnywhere as the premier secure remote control application.

New Quick Connect feature provides one-click connections to frequently accessed computers.

You can enjoy greater control with many new "in-session" features designed to make you more efficient at troubleshooting or working remotely.

Smart card authentication supports all PC/SC compliant smart cards (standard on newer versions of Windows) required by highly secure company environments-typically in the public sector.

Primary and secondary authentication offers additional flexibility and security for authentication.

The ability to specify Microsoft Active Directory objects by name for LDAP authentication provides better performance when browsing large Active Directory environments.

Additional multiple monitor support gives you the option to specify a monitor to view or scroll among all attached monitors.

Native whiteboard support provides a two-way communication tool for a technician and an end user to collaborate. Standard drawing features are used to mark the screen for both users to see.

A thumbnail view of active sessions enables easy management of multiple sessions. Keyboard shortcuts simplify navigation to active sessions. When connected to multiple sessions, this function allows a "soft KVM" capability.

File transfer is done through the familiar Windows Explorer, making copying files intuitive and familiar.

The Actions menu can now be customized by adding the most common controls for "in-session" use.

1 out of 5 eggsCareful, no longer works with earlier versions

Pros: made me type here

Cons: In January 2012, Symantec confirmed that pcAnywhere source code was exposed by hackers who posted the code publicly.
As a result of the security updates, this new version of pcAnywhere is not backward-compatible with, and will not connect to, older versions of pcAnywhere.
