TeamViewer (http://www.teamviewer.com ), a provider of solutions for
online communication and collaboration, now offers a Host Module
enabling the control of unattended remote computers. It connects two
computers, without manual confirmation of the unattended computer,
while maintaining the highest security standards.
TeamViewer solutions work via Internet, creating a secure connection
between two computers located anywhere in the world. Downloading the
Host Module generates an ID number and prompts the user to set a
password, both of which will be used to access the host computer.
Then a unique connection is established, and runs permanently in the
background of the host computer. To access the host computer, users
simply enter the host ID number and password as the partner details
on their TeamViewer session.
With the Host Module function, and with all TeamViewer sessions,
remote reboot is now possible. This allows users to update software
or servers on a distant computer without losing the remote
connection. All TeamViewer solutions operate with the highest
security standards, says Tilo Rossmanith, founder and director of
TeamViewer. Transferred data is encoded with Advanced Encryption
Standards (AES 256 bit) and RSA private/public key exchange, creating
a fully secure client to client connection that prevents
man-in-the-middle and brute force attacks, he adds.
All TeamViewer software features cross-platform support, and is fully
operational on both Mac and Windows systems. TeamViewer solutions are
constantly updated to guarantee fast internal performance. TeamViewer
works behind firewalls, enabling information sharing without
compromising computer security, says Rossmanith.
