IBM Security MaaS360 + TeamViewer: Providing the support you need in these unprecedented times

By Wiggs Civitillo posted Mon April 20, 2020 09:31 AM



During this tectonic shift towards remote work, we are offering the TeamViewer functionality in MaaS360 for a 90-day no cost trial, to help you support your employees as they work from home.*

With more employees working remotely than ever before, it’s never been more important to be able to securely manage and support your devices to facilitate continued productivity. Today, in addition to managing and securing smartphones, tablets, and laptops from the MaaS360 portal, you can provide helpdesk support for these devices as well, initiating screen sharing and remote control via the portal to support your employees when they need help.

MaaS360® integrates with TeamViewer to provide remote support (remote view and control) to managed devices (iOS, Android, macOS, and Windows) from the MaaS360 Portal. This integration allows you to view or control managed devices as a part of remote support sessions to troubleshoot device issues while ensuring business continuity—providing IT support to users without needing to travel for in-person troubleshooting.


MaaS360 supports two modes of remote support:

  • Attended access: Allows remote access to devices based on end-user approvals. (Supported systems: Android, iOS, macOS, Windows Laptops and Desktops 7 and later, and Windows 10 Phones)
  • Unattended access: Allows permanent access to remote devices without requiring any end-user intervention. (Supported systems: Android - Coming Soon: Windows)
