Using free or low-cost remote control tools for remote support can introduce security risks. Remote control tools could allow a technician to gain unattended access to a remote computer in a department where security is more critical such as HR or Finance. Worse, the unauthorized access and actions taken, such as a file transfer, could go undetected.
LogMeIn Rescue is hosted in three SAS-70 compliant enterprise-level Class A data centers and all connections between remote users and technicians are encrypted with 256-SSL encryption - the same security levels used and trusted by major banking institutions. LogMeIn Rescue is permission-based, and logs all remote session activity for reporting and compliance. For more details please see the LogMeIn Rescue Architecture Whitepaper.
