Splashtop Expands Linux Remote Access Support to Additional Linux Distributions

Splashtop users can now remotely access and control their Linux computers from Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Chromebook devices.

SAN JOSE, Calif., March 26, 2020 – Splashtop Inc., the worldwide leader in remote access and remote support solutions, has added new Linux distributions that can be remotely accessed and controlled using Splashtop remote access tools. The supported Linux desktop platforms now include:

  • New! CentOS 7 and 8
  • New! Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.3-8.1
  • New! Fedora 29-31
  • Ubuntu desktop 16.04 and 18.04

Computers running on these Linux distributions can now be accessed and controlled from the Splashtop Business app on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and Chromebook devices.

Mark Lee, CEO of Splashtop said “By supporting more Linux distributions like CentOS, RHEL and Fedora, we now extend Splashtop to a great majority of Linux users. Users can remotely access Linux computers as if they are sitting right in front of them. Recently, we’ve seen an increasing number of customers using VNC (and even VPN) switch to Splashtop since they experienced performance and scaling issues as entire companies are now working remotely from home.”

A Superior Alternative to VNC

Linux users can switch from VNC as Splashtop provides a 10x faster, more secure, easier to set-up and use alternative to remotely access Linux computers.
