What is remote desktop?

Learn More Close

Remote desktop is a software program that allows you to connect to a different device and control it remotely, as if you were controlling it directly in person. Remote desktop programs are commonly used for IT support and maintenance, as they allow support staff to operate off-site, but they are also popular as a mobile office solution. While some remote desktop software, such as Windows Remote Desktop, only enable connections between devices running the same operating system, TeamViewer is fully cross compatible, giving you greater flexibility.

  • Remotely access all files and applications, from anywhere and at any time
  • Connect from any computer or smartphone
  • Transmit sensitive data securely thanks to end-to-end encryption

There are multiple security measures in place to ensure that no lurking hackers can intercept or read any of your private information while your desktop is being shared. With TeamViewer, all data is end-to-end encrypted, meaning even our servers cannot access anything belonging to the customer. The extra step of two-factor authentication makes sure only authorised persons can log in and if any suspicious activity is detected on your account, you will be invited to reset your password as a safety precaution.

  • Remotely maintain Android-based commercial devices, e.g. information displays
  • Your device is not supported yet? TeamViewer loves cooperation with OEMs

Remote connections and Data Transfer in Accordance With the Latest Security Standards

Data protection and integrity are top priorities for TeamViewer. To this end, a security architecture consisting of modern encryption and control procedures is always used. An RSA public/private key exchange is used for authentication during which the private key always remains on the client computer. Any data sent is end-to-end encrypted with 256-bit AES. TeamViewer’s security standards are thus in compliance with international standards, and they ensure that data transfers are in accordance with strict compliance guidelines.

  • Your data is completely secure with TeamViewer because it prevents unauthorised access by third parties through end-to-end encryption (256-bit AES).
  • Unauthorised participation in meetings and data theft is prevented via the use of dynamic session passwords.
  • Any suspicious activities on an account (e.g. logging in from a new location) are recorded. If necessary, a password reset is initiated.
  • Due to client-to-client access, even our servers cannot access customer data.
  • Two-factor authentication provides comprehensive protection against unauthorised access to user accounts.
