The company was founded in 2000 by Taylor Kew and Rich Baker. Glance is subscription based: customers subscribe on a daily, monthly, or yearly basis. Glance eschews most traditional marketing strategies in favor of netroots-style support from blogging and social networking communities, featuring presences on Facebook, Twitter and similar sites.
Glance is designed as a web-based, cross-platform remote desktop application with several levels of redundancy to avoid disconnections. These are both physical and electronic; Glance's internet traffic travels through two geographically distinct colocation centers, one in Massachusetts and another in California.
In October 2008, Glance released version 2.4. It allowed Glance account holders to either show their screen to others, as they had been able to do previously, or view their guest's screen. This additional mode allows Glance to function as a remote support program.
In January 2007, the company received an award from the Small Business Technology Magazine as "Product To Watch For 2006". In 2009, Glance Networks was ranked 56th in the Boston-Cambridge-Quincy, Massachusetts and New Hampshire region. In 2010, Glance Networks was named in Lead411's Hottest Boston Companies List.
