TeamViewer Rolls Out Version 8 for Linux
Mar 15, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
TeamViewer, a provider of remote control and online meetings software, announced the arrival of TeamViewer version 8 for Linux.
This follows the recent launch of TeamViewer 8 for Windows, Mac and mobile platforms and now means that TeamViewer 8 is available on all platforms.
According to a release, TeamViewer for Linux version 8 provides a set of new features that make remote administration within companies even easier than ever before.
As described by the company, the features include:
-24/7 remote access: With TeamViewer 8 Linux computers can be accessed remotely including login, logout and system reboot - making it perfect for server maintenance and home office access.
-Session handover: Now IT support staff have the opportunity to invite colleagues to an active remote session or even pass the session over completely.
-Enhanced session recording: Sound and video can be recorded for perfect documentation and improved online training opportunities.
-Comment on sessions for billing documentation: Comments can be entered immediately after closing the remote control session for improved documentation.
-Sharing of selected groups with other TeamViewer accounts: Now it is easy to share individual groups from the computers & contacts list with the support team, so all colleagues have quick access on shared client computers. Read or write permissions can be set individually.
-Central control of TeamViewer user accounts: With TeamViewer version 8, Linux users benefit from the cloud-based TeamViewer Management Console, which has been introduced recently and gives IT support workers browser-based access to their TeamViewer accounts and contacts anytime, anywhere. Key features in the Management Console include user management, connection reporting of all remote control sessions and the possibility to start remote connections with a single-click directly from out of the browser. The TeamViewer Management Console is an exclusive feature of the Premium and Corporate license.
"The addition of TeamViewer 8 for Linux to our product portfolio creates greater business efficiencies for our Linux users," said Holger Felgner, General Manager at TeamViewer. "The improved handling and documentation of remote sessions, and centralized controls make TeamViewer an even more essential, cross-platform tool for efficient client liaison and remote support."
As with all TeamViewer software, version 8 for Linux offers full encryption based on RSA private-/public key exchange and AES 256 Bit encryption. This technology is based on the same standards as https/SSL and provides users with the highest levels of security.
