Best Remote Access Software featured image

As many workers have shifted to working in offsite locations, the need for secure remote access for remote support and device management has never been greater. It can be difficult to securely access and control all your organization’s endpoints, but secure remote access solutions simplify and streamline that process.

What are remote access solutions?

Remote access solutions consist of tools and software used to provide access to computers and devices in any location. This helps organizations to easily enable authorized access to devices so that remote support and management can be executed. Remote access software is the key tool for establishing remote control of offsite devices.

5 secure remote access solutions

1) TeamViewer

TeamViewer is a remote connectivity platform used for remote access, remote support, and remote control. The software works by setting up the software on your organization’s computers allowing a computer to be accessed remotely through the internet. You’ll assign a TeamViewer ID and password to your endpoints, and access them using that information.

2) Splashtop

Splashtop enables remote access to a computer by installing a streamer application that runs in the background. The essential parts of an application are downloaded on the endpoint, and whatever else is necessary to perform other functions is downloaded as you go. This enables quick and simple remote access to your devices for support and management. Splashtop can be used by MSPs, IT Pros, and an organization’s help desk.

3) GoTo

GoTo allows you to execute device management and resolve technical issues from any location. It uses zero trust remote access to verify secure remote access. The software gives you the ability to provide remote support and monitor and manage all your organizational endpoints.

4) AnyDesk

AnyDesk is remote desktop software that enables secure access to devices from anywhere. It uses TLS 1.2 to ensure that all connections are authorized and uses Two-Factor Authentication to connect to a device remotely with a password. It is software that can be used by individuals or IT Pros.

5) BeyondTrust

BeyondTrust is a privileged access management and remote access solution. It stores passwords and credentials and applies least privilege to protect endpoints and secure remote access. It also enables remote support of your devices so help desks can resolve technical issues.

How to choose a secure remote access solution

It can be challenging to determine which remote access solution to choose and incorporate into your IT environment. Here are some major elements to factor into your decision:

– Method of access

Each solution has a unique way to enable authorized access, whether by simply pre-installing software onto devices or creating IDs and passwords for devices. Depending on your organization, you might prefer one over the other.

– Ease of management

Remote access should be a quick process so there’s less time spent trying to access the endpoint and more time supporting and maintaining your computers. NinjaOne offers a remote access solution that makes it easy for you to take control of your organization’s endpoints.

– Integrates with existing IT environment

Trying to incorporate new software that doesn’t integrate with the software you currently have can be a recipe for disaster. It’s much easier to implement a remote access solution that can integrate well with the tools you’re already using.

– Included features

Remote access features can include session recording, file transfers, connection reports, and more. Consider what features you are looking for in a secure remote access solution, and choose a solution that provides the features your business needs for remote access.

– Reliability

A well-performing remote access solution is dependable and efficient. Choose remote access software that you can rely on so you can quickly access and manage devices wherever they’re located.
