If you are looking for a useful tool for remote control, we highly advise you to try TeamViewer. This software is on the market from 2005, but open versions for various platforms only appeared in November 2019. For now, it is available on Microsoft Windows, Android, iOS, macOS, Linux, Windows Phone 8, Windows RT, and BlackBerry.

Simple management and the package of available features

TeamViewer is one of the oldest players on the scene of remote applications. Launched in 2005, it has a number of exciting features. Among them:

  • Users can access the computers fully security by using firewalls and proxy servers; 
  • Simple navigation and intuitive interface;
  • In-built keyboard functionality;
  • The opportunity to transfer files in both directions;
  • Real-time video and audio submission;
  • Multi-monitor support, etc.

It is not a secret that the main focus of the application is to provide people with an easy-to-use tool for remote control. But besides them, there are collaboration and presentation features. For example, you can create groups with your colleagues, chat with friends, create web conferences, and online meetings. TeamViewer is a highly corporate-oriented software; therefore, it has all the necessary features for this. As statistics say, TeamViewer is used by more than 200 million computers worldwide.

Security question

The company claims that you can do not worry about security as the application uses only the highest and well-known security standards, such as 256 Bit AES Session Encoding and 2048 Bit RSA Key Exchange. Also, there are two-factor authentication, detecting unusual activity and, as a result, enforced password reset, and the tool for the trusted device — Whitelisting.

In spite of this, the question of security is highly discussed as the company was in the center of several unpleasant accusations. For example, in June 2006, TeamViewer’s users noticed that their devices were accessed by unknown address located in China. But the company officially claimed that “neither was TeamViewer hacked nor is there a security hole, TeamViewer is safe to use and has proper security measures in place.” There were several similar scandals.

  • Additionally, one can also use tools like logmein, R-HUB remote support etc. They work well.

  • Yeah, I was a huge fan of Teamviewer until I recently discovered a very good remote support solution: R-HUB remote support servers. It works from behind the firewall, hence better security.
