TeamViewer integrated into Avira Online Essentials Dashboard

TeamViewer’s remote control function has been integrated into Avira Online Essentials to provide users with a one-stop security solution to manage many devices.

 

Tampa, Fla., Feb 10, 2016 - TeamViewer®, a leader in desktop sharing and online collaboration software, has partnered with Avira, to give users of the Avira Online Essentials Dashboard the possibility to remotely control their devices.

By integrating TeamViewer into the Avira Online Essentials Dashboard, Avira enables users to remotely connect to their devices, and devices of family members and friends, and manage them from within the dashboard. The easy-to-use web based dashboard is perfect for managing and installing Avira security apps on all computers or mobile devices that a consumer owns. In light of the current trend towards the consumerization of technology, it is rather common for people to have multiple devices. Keeping tag on all of these devices can be a tough task. Combined with TeamViewer’s remote control capabilities, the dashboard gives users the possibility to have an overview over all of their devices and ensure that there are no security breaches.

The aim of this integration was to give tech savvy users more control and to empower them to provide support for people who are not digital natives and might have trouble managing the security on their devices. It also gives users the possibility to deploy certain tasks and push settings remotely to other devices. All these functions are made even easier thanks to the remote control capabilities of TeamViewer.

“In order to keep our users as secure as possible, one of our main goals is to continuously add value to our products without making them too difficult to use. Integrating TeamViewer in Avira’s Online Essentials dashboard has allowed thousands of people to connect to their devices remotely in the easiest possible way. Plus, the integration process went smoothly and in addition to their excellent online API documentation, we had the support of TeamViewer experts all the way,” said Dan Tuhoarca, Online Essentials Product Manager at Avira.

The different ways in which this integration is beneficial are clearly indicated on the Avira Online Essentials Dashboard website. Users can remotely control their devices for many reasons: to track and locate them in case of theft, to transfer files and data remotely, to remotely monitor and update security status on all devices, to have an overview of all devices and to safeguard user’s identity against email breaches.

Users can use the familiar TeamViewer remote control options together with the familiar Online Essentials Dashboard, to solve many vital issues on their device. This means they can track and locate their devices in case of theft, can transfer files and data remotely, can remotely monitor and update security status on all devices, and also have an overview of all devices to safeguard user’s identity against email breaches. With this integration, users can now combine the strengths of these two widely used software to ensure the safety of their devices – and those of family and friends.
