Windows Remote Management (WinRM)

Definition - What does Windows Remote Management (WinRM) mean?

Windows Remote Management (WinRM) is a utility shipped with Windows Vista that allows system administrators to run management scripts remotely. Remote connections are remotely managed using the WS-Management protocol, which is built on SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol). WinRM allows different hardware and operating systems from different vendors to interoperate remotely.

Techopedia explains Windows Remote Management (WinRM)

Windows Remote Management allows network administrators to access, manipulate and search data from both local and remote computers. This is possible even if the hardware and operating systems are from different vendors since the protocol can be implemented on non-Windows operating systems such as Linux. WinRM allows an administrator to remotely collect data from various systems and combine them and place them in a central location on a computer or server. WinRM ensures privacy through encryption and authentication when logging in.
