What is Soluto?

Soluto is a cloud-based PC management service that allows users to remotely view technical details of a computer and take pre-approved remote actions on their and on others’ computers, with the goal of improving computer performance. Soluto can be accessed via the web, a downloaded agent, and a Windows 8 Metro app. Users can manage up to 5 computers for free. Slots for additional computers can be purchased on a per month per computer basis. Soluto uses a downloaded agent to transmit data to, and receive data from, Soluto’s back-end servers. Data transmitted to Soluto includes the apps running during boot up, enabled browser toolbars and add-ons, hardware specs, and a specialized form of crash reports. The servers send back to the agent information such as solutions for recent crashes and the remote actions that were initiated by the user and need to occur.
