"Offers a secure method of access without having to install agents everywhere."
"The solution is stable."
"It is effective. It is a good way of making sure that you're auditing what's going on. It also makes the end-user feel safe that you're not getting into things that you shouldn't be getting into because they're authorizing different areas for you to see. It is a pretty secure tool. It is important as far as security is concerned. It is very effective in terms of the support personnel being able to get the job done when they need to. It is easy for the end-user or the person we're helping out to understand how to allow somebody in to get the work done."
"This is a very secure product."
"Solution has a good UI."
"The most valuable feature of BeyondTrust Remote Support is the ability to control screens remotely."
"The solution has been very stable. We haven't had issues at all. It doesn't crash or freeze. There aren't bugs or glitches either."
"Screen sharing, in general, is pretty important for a service desk. Another thing that I have found to be very helpful is that you can also do screen sharing on a cell phone. When people have an issue with their cell phone, it is ordinarily very difficult to troubleshoot the issue. With BeyondTrust Remote Support, you can share the cell phone screen, and somebody can take a look at it remotely. I am not sure if other competing solutions offer this feature. It is pretty user-friendly. It is also good performance-wise."
"I do love the monitoring page. If you are using ConnectWise Control, which is the on-prem version, when you are logged into the admin panel, there is a status page that checks network connectivity, the status of the license, and so on."
"ConnectWise Connect is very convenient as we can remote to a PC even when it is not within our LAN."
"You can bring up a command prompt remotely and execute commands without having to disturb the user."
"Due to the fact that we can help our clients virtually, the solution has allowed us to reduce our travel costs by about 90%."
"Offers more security than TeamViewer, Google Remote Desktop, and Zoom. It's a stable, feature-rich solution that's easy to set up and easy to scale."
"iOS interactive support would be a cool addition. Right now it's a non-interactive view."
"Technical support for this region can be improved."
"Lacks remote support and privileged remote access in the one product."
"It could be more compatible with other applications. We had trouble with compatibility when it came to Entrust. This is because we had issues with Windows machines when we installed Entrust."
"Non-Windows support capabilities need improvement. They need to expand into Macs, iOS, and Android. It's there now, however, there's room for growth and that's probably the best area to expand."
"It is expensive. Its initial setup was also a little bit involved, but it was nothing that we couldn't eventually handle. Currently, it has the ability to share screens. Somebody having an issue with their phone can share their screen with a technician sitting at a computer. It would be nice to also be able to control phones remotely, but this could be a limitation of a phone's operating system."
"It is pricey. It would be nice if it weren't so expensive because then you could afford more licenses and have more people involved, but I get it. They do have something that's unique compared to some of their competitors out on the market. It is a very robust and safe tool. If the price could come down, that'd be great."
"Lacks some kind of voice communication option."
"Something that I would like to see in the future is mobile video streaming. They do provide audio conferencing, but seeing the problem makes it easier to solve the problem. If they had video streaming, if a client had a physical problem with something and I couldn't get remote access, the client could use his mobile phone to show me the problem. In these cases, even if a client's systems were down, I could help, so long as I had a mobile phone environment."
"On a Linux machine, there are different limitations that are not there on a Windows Server. Much more limitations exist on Linux deployments."
"I really didn't care for the onboarding process and it is something that should be improved."
"I would like ConnectWise Control to be more transparent on the real costs to renew their license."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by BeyondTrust Remote Support users.
A Cybersecurity Architect at a tech vendor says, “The most valuable features are the ease of deployment, performance, pre and post-sales support, the vast majority of the localization they have done and the solution provider that they support. You can't compete with TeamViewer or any other similar products. It's completely in a class of its own.”
An Enterprise Service Desk Systems Manager at a manufacturing company comments, "Screen sharing, in general, is pretty important for a service desk. Another thing that I have found to be very helpful is that you can also do screen sharing on a cell phone. When people have an issue with their cell phone, it is ordinarily very difficult to troubleshoot the issue.
