"Our vision with RDM is to give IT teams and pros a practical, simple, and time-saving tool they can use every day to control all of their remote connections and securely manage credentials and passwords," said David Hervieux, founder and CEO of Devolutions, in a prepared statement.

Devolutions RDM is available in standard and enterprise editions. Standard edition is free with no expiry date but has a reduced feature set. Current RDM Enterprise customers or subscribers to the company's maintenance program can download RDM 8.1 now.
