TeamViewer Tensor: Empowering a secure workspace for enterprises
Central management and complete control over remote connections
TeamViewer Tensor is a SaaS, cloud-based enterprise connectivity platform that can be deployed quickly and easily across large-scale IT infrastructures. Tensor scales linearly to meet the needs of large enterprises, providing industry-leading connectivity and real-time support tools without requiring costly hardware investments.
With Tensor’s Conditional Access, enterprise IT and security managers can now centrally manage all TeamViewer usage within their corporate network:
- Within the Tensor Management Console, IT managers can leverage conditional access to ensure that all remote connections can be centrally managed and fully controlled.
- IT administrators can define and modify rules to allow or deny access to TeamViewer Tensor from anywhere, at anytime – whether onsite or from remote locations.
- Conditional Access aligns more closely with corporate security best-practices by enforcing access rights across the entire corporate network. IT organizations can feel more confident that security risks are minimized, and policies are consistently enforced.
