TeamViewer Proves to be a Perfect Match for Financial Services Industry

Fiducia Certificate Confirms Secure Operation of TeamViewer’s Remote Access Software in Banking Environments OPDV Certificate Affirms That TeamViewer Meets Quality Standards Of Financial Industry

 

Tampa, Fla, April 28, 2016TeamViewer®, the global pioneer of remote control and online collaboration software, demonstrated that its flagship product is a perfect match for the financial services industry. The company announced today that TeamViewer 11 successfully completed the extensive testing processes for both the Fiducia and the OPDV certificates. This means that TeamViewer meets the extremely high quality and security standards of this industry.

The financial services sector naturally requires utmost care when it comes to security and quality. Organizations need to make sure that the software solutions they deploy will process financial transactions and sensitive data securely and reproducibly.

Additionally, organizations are striving to enhance the quality and efficiency of their customer service. TeamViewer can assume a vital role in that context as it enables users to establish a fully encrypted online session within seconds over the internet. This way partners can share a computer screen so that all involved parties see precisely what everyone else does. Furthermore, this extends the reach of organizations as they can offer consultation appointments as online meetings. This will give them an opportunity to attend to clients who cannot make themselves available during regular operating hours.

“We are keen to meet the needs of the financial services industry. So the Fiducia and the OPDV certificates are must-haves to us, because they demonstrate our commitment to fully reflect the requirements of this sector in our product,” said Kornelius Brunner, Vice President Product Management at TeamViewer.”

The Fiducia certificate is awarded by Fiducia & GAD IT AG. Fiducia & GAD IT is the largest IT services provider in the German cooperative financial services sector. It is part of the German cooperative financial group (i.e. genossenschaftliche Finanzgruppe). Its clients include all Volks- and Raiffeisen Banks in Germany. Fiducia’s approval is a mandatory prerequisite for the use of software in this environment.

The ODPV certificate, on the other hand, is awarded by SIZ Gmbh, a member of the German Sparkassen Finance Group. SIZ sets up IT and security standards for the financial services industry. The certificate is essential for all participating Sparkassen institutes when they are selecting IT solutions.

TeamViewer has been activated on more than 1,100,000,000 devices worldwide. The software has been translated into more than 30 languages and is being sold in over 200 countries of the world. There are more than 200 million active users worldwide and more than 25 million connected devices at any given time. The software is downloaded more than 10 million times per month. With more than 300,000 paying customers, TeamViewer is relied upon by not only small and medium sized businesses but also by the Fortune 500 and many mid-sized enterprises.
