ISO 9001:2008 Quality Certification
TeamViewer GmbH is one of the very few
companies on the remote control market with
a certified quality management system
according to ISO 9001.
This is an additional verification that our
quality system meets internationally
accepted standards. (Download certificate)
TeamViewer includes encryption based on RSA private-/public key exchange and AES (256 bit) session encryption. This technology is based on the same standards as https/SSL and is considered completely safe by today's standards.
The key exchange also guarantees full, client-to-client data protection. This means that even our routing servers will not be able to read the data stream.
In addition to the PartnerID TeamViewer generates a session password that changes with every software start to provide additional security against unauthorized access to a remote system.
Security relevant functions like file transfer require additional, manual confirmation of the remote partner.
Also it is not possible to invisibly control a computer. For data protection reasons the person sitting on the remote computer has to be able to detect when someone is accessing the machine.
All program files are secured using
VeriSign code signing technology. This
allows you to verify the origin of the
executables you received.
Two Factor Authentication
TeamViewer assists companies with their HIPAA and PCI compliance requirements. Two factor authentication adds an additional security layer to protect TeamViewer accounts from unauthorized access. In combination with access control through white listing TeamViewer allows you to get HIPAA and PCI ready. With two factor authentication, additionally to username and password, a code generated on a mobile device is needed to sign in to a TeamViewer account. The code is generated via the time-based one-time password (TOTP) algorithm. The TOTP code is protected by SRP and thus perfectly safe against man in the middle attacks.
