Our Background


TightVNC 1.0

Konstantin Kaplinskiy, who was working on a thesis on data compression algorithms at Tomsk Polytechnic University, started the open-source TightVNC project.


TightVNC Development

TightVNC reached millions of downloads, was included in all major Linux distributions, and was used both by computer geeks and by specialists in the largest global corporations.


Foundation of GlavSoft

GlavSoft was officially registered with the goal of providing commercial development and support services for TightVNC and related remote desktop software.


TightVNC 2.0

GlavSoft released TightVNC 2.0, featuring a completely rewritten version of the server component, and became the sole owner of the software’s intellectual property rights.


New Products

GlavSoft launched Remote Ripple for Android, which marked the beginning of a new era of software products that were more user-friendly and adapted to the evolving needs of users.



Our current product line offers remote desktop solutions for many systems and platforms, targeting a wide range of audiences: individuals, enterprises, and software developer companies.
