Â TeamViewer Tensor: Empowering a secure workspace for enterprises
Central management and complete control over remote connections
TeamViewer Tensor is a SaaS, cloud-based enterprise connectivity platform that can be deployed quickly and easilyacross large-scale IT infrastructures. Tensor scales linearly to meet the needs of large enterprises, providing industry-leading connectivity and real-time support tools without requiring costly hardware investments.
With Tensorâs Conditional Access, enterprise IT and security managers can now centrally manage all TeamViewer usage within their corporate network:
Within the Tensor Management Console, IT managers can leverage conditional access to ensure that all remote connections can be centrally managed and fully controlled.
IT administrators can define and modify rules to allow or deny access to TeamViewer Tensor from anywhere, at anytime â whether onsite or from remote locations.
Conditional Access aligns more closely with corporate security best-practices by enforcing access rights across the entire corporate network. IT organizations can feel more confident that security risks are minimized, and policies are consistently enforced.Â
