Parsec recently announced that it is extending its low-latency remote desktop capabilities to support macOS. Parsec for Teams on macOS now supports remote access software for both commercial and personal use. The release offers the granular controls, automation, and integration capabilities of Parsec for Teams to companies and individuals using Macs.
Parsec for Teams receives support for macOS
In an interview with GamesBeat, Benjy Boxer, CEO of New York-based Parsec said that the company created Parsec for Teams and Parsec for Enterprise during the pandemic offering subscription services and enterprise licenses on top of its free product. Modifying Parsec for macOS took almost a year since a lot of engineers had to deal with the different APIs and other features of Mac.
“When our customers called for greater controls and flexibility to enable their large workforces to work during the pandemic, we responded with two new products: Parsec for Teams and Parsec for Enterprise,” said Benjy Boxer, CEO, Parsec. “Loyal Mac creatives are now calling for support for their favorite operating system, and we’re responding with macOS hosting so they can enjoy all the benefits of Parsec on their high-powered Mac workstations.”
Using Parsec, employees can leave their Mac at the office and use another machine at home to control it remotely. Boxer went on to say that workers at entertainment and visual design firms Fox and Sid Lee have already used Parsec’s macOS hosting to work on heavy-duty tasks like artwork during the pandemic.
Boxer added, “Many compute-intensive projects and applications are on macOS-based hosts today, and many use Mac-only applications. Our customers now have the access, control, and security they need to work and collaborate remotely and safely on macOS environments.”
The service also provides a security layer when interacting with critical project files and proprietary tools. “Many compute-intensive projects and applications are on macOS-based hosts today, and many use Mac-only applications,” Boxer said. “Our customers now have the access, control, and security they need to work and collaborate remotely and safely on macOS environments.”
