No security trade-offs
Companies often invest in VPNs because of security concerns. (After all, the “P” stands for “private.”) Thinking about the security of your data is valid. Thinking you’re trading security for convenience with TeamViewer is not.
First, any data stays on the office machine behind your company’s firewall. The client machine is only receiving the image changes on their screen.
Second, TeamViewer’s industry-grade 256-bit end-to-end session encryption makes sure your remote connections stay private and protected. Because access is only gained through the proper credentials and a variety of additional security measures like maximum login attempts and two-factor authentication, even if a worker’s laptop is lost or stolen, an unauthorized user can’t gain access to your network.
Third, TeamViewer’s black screen functionality means the remote screen stays inactive during a session. No one near the computer can see what is being worked on remotely or take over an active session.
And you maintain compliance with security regulations.
For example, hospitals have thousands of employees on the front lines and even more working from home. IT staff can support frontline staff remotely without adding to the risk. Off-site medical personnel can remotely collaborate on cases and provide telehealth services to patients while remaining HIPAA compliant.
