TeamViewer GmbH on Thursday announced the release of the live version of TeamViewer, a remote maintenance software tool for Mac OS X and Windows. It’s free for non-commercial use; TeamViewer is priced from $249 to $1,399 depending on the scope of the license for business use.
TeamViewer helps network administrators, IT support personnel and others to control Macs or Windows PCs remotely, regardless of operating system. The software runs using client software that doesn’t require installation — it just needs to be operating in order to work.
The TeamViewer application uses a unique ID code that you can then share with others either by e-mailing them or calling them. The ID code generates a connection to the computer, allowing it to be controlled remotely. TeamViewer traffic is encrypted using public and private key exchange and AES 256-bit session encoding.
