BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)

I've had a lot of problems with my laptop (work issued). [With BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)] our team has been able to get in easily and correct issues I've been having with very little interruption to my own work day. The fact that I don't have to navigate to a separate website to get help is huge. They can send me a link via Teams (Or I can login directly) and get help quickly.

I can access all my music and information whereever I am. If I'm practicing for a concert and find that a piece of music is not working well, I can access my "host" computer, print another piece of music that will work better. I have everything I need with only a little typing.

Pros

BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)

  • Ease of use for the end user. Nothing for them to do. We just located their computer object within the management application and double click to access.
  • Remote access to the end point as long as they have internet access.
  • Administration, permissions in the setup are easy to follow, creating jump groups, policies.
Randy MacFarland | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoToMyPC

  • Super easy to log in and access everything I would be able to see if I were sitting at my desk at work.
  • Software that lives on our work server would not be accessible to me from home without this software.
  • Very user friendly.

Cons

BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)

  • The process users follow to start a remote session if the Bomgar software is not already installed seems to confuse some users. I've seen other remote support software products that seem to do a little better job.
  • The rep client software can be a little buggy. Some times it crashes or locks up when using it.
  • The iOS rep console app is good but not as full featured as the Desktop app. It would be nice to see complete parity between the two and have all the same features on the iOS app as you do on the desktop.
Patrick Cranston | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoToMyPC

  • Sometimes the consistency in the connection might lag and create some errors.
  • Some issues might be beyond our knowledge, therefore a technician or expert might be needed (rare case)
  • If connecting from home, it will take a lot of your data and might slow other devices connections

We have many reasons to keep our Bomgar. Security is one of the biggest reasons. Not only is Bomgar one of the most secure means to connect remotely, it also records everything you do so there is no question as to what is going on or who is doing it. If an end user has a complaint, you have the tools to validate which party did what and when.

Plain and simple, GoToMyPC offers one of the best remote PC access software in the market. The main reason we choose this software is because it's easy to install and use, and it has a full suite of tools for telecommuting and collaboration.The total access that is controlled from a web browser interface. It incorporates strong security that you can modify.

Bomgar is so simple to use that we didn't need to have training to show engineers how to use it, we had them install the client, login, and play around with it, they got the hang of it quite easily and embraced using it with customers. When we were acquired by another company they wanted to use Bomgar, all we needed to do is add them into our LDAP directory and allow them to login, they picked it up and began using it with their customers immediately. The software BEGS people to use it once you try it, you will be hooked! Whether you use it to support internal customers, external customers, access your own machines remotely, or just do file transfers, there is nothing that is as feature rich as Bomgar.

It is easy to use. No matter where you are located, you can access the actual files that are on your computer. It is truly as though you are working at your desk. There have been times where my assistant is at my desk and I am working remotely and so we can work together on the same document while miles apart.

The only time I have ever been down was due to needing to update the software on our appliance. Bomgar has always been available when I need it! It's the best product I have used in the last 30 years of working in IT. I highly recommend it to anyone considering purchasing a remote support product.

There is no lag-time at all, no matter how many users we have on the box, it is always entirely dependant on the customers internet speed (as we have a very fast connection), that is the only issue I've EVER seen with Bomgar, no matter how many sessions we run the box is always up, always fast, always working.

The support team at Bomgar always goes beyond the call of duty. No question seems to little or big for them to handle. They are there with you from the time you initiate a session or call with them until there is a resolution. You get awesome service. Their reps are always friendly and knowledgeable

I tried just tonight to get information on the use of GoToMyPC while on a Surface in New Zealand with no success. That was disappointing as I would have thought that the automatic "text" would have had information on using GoToMyPC from other countries.

we didn't have in-person training because their online training was so overwhelmingly well done. Start by looking at the docs: http://www.bomgar.com/docs/content/index.htm if that alone doesn't answer all your questions, there will be a window that pops up asking if you would like to chat with a sales representative, or a support engineer. Either of them can answer all of your questions as easily as if they were standing there with you, or talking to you on the phone, it is truly the power of Bomgar!

Since we have installed and been running Bomgar software for quite some time now, we have taken the opportunity to attend various web trainings, and they are always very prompt, informative and open to questions/discussions. We appreciate the work that Bomgar does to keep their customer community informed of new features and discussions of further product developments.

It was easy to get going. You have to pick your features to enable disable and then configure any customizations for the enabled features. It could not be easier to get started. The number of options can be a bit overwhelming at first

BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)

Bomgar gives us the ability to extend our technical support out to users who are not on campus. This comes in handy when employees have issues with passwords or registration and they need a little assistance. And [BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)] works across many platforms and devices. We have also used GoToAssist in the past and Log Me In, but this is the best

I recently started having problems with Splashtop - slow response/freezes/drops, and after troubleshooting everything
internet and hardware related, decided to check out GoToMyPC as one step
in troubleshooting. GoToMyPC has better response
time and has been more reliable. So far I am pleased with the switch with just a couple of minor matters mentioned earlier in review.

Since the Bomgar Box is BOTH hardware and software, it can be purchased in any capacity deemed necessary, so scalability isn't an issue, Bomgar has the experience necessary to create a design that can support as many customer and agent sessions as you can throw at it. We have never had any issues with the Bomgar box and licenses that we have installed.

Return on Investment

BeyondTrust Remote Support (Legacy)

  • Feedback from customer surveys indicate the customers are very happy and impressed with the solution.
  • Efficiency is increased with more incidents and requests being completed from the desk rather than visiting.
  • Faster resolution of incidents where the users is out of the office. Typically these would need to wait until they were in the office, now we can remote control and resolve via an internet connection.
Stevie Watson | TrustRadius Reviewer

GoToMyPC

  • At about $500 per year per PC it is expensive.
  • While on customer visits, our customers were quite impressed that we were quickly able to access our server and get the answers they needed
  • We were able to get some of our crucial SW developed through programmers abroad because of this connection.
