What security measures are taken?
Our remote support software uses full encryption. Encryption is based on 2048bit RSA private/public key exchange and 256 Bit AES session encoding. This uses the same security level as https/SSL and is considered completely safe by today’s standards. The key exchange also guarantees that the data channel is completely encoded from client to client and that any routers or servers in between (including our routers) are unable to read or analyze the data stream. Security and privacy have always been a top priority during development.
Does it work behind firewalls?
Yes, the remote support software will allow you to share your desktop over almost any firewall.
Why does my antivirus software appear when downloading and running the remote software?
Certain virus definitions report the remote software as potentially dangerous, as by the nature of the job it does, it requires a much deeper access to the system than a standard application. Please make sure that you do have the latest virus definition of your antivirus software to help prevent this.
