The term TeamViewer stands both for the company TeamViewer and its flagship product.
It is also informally used as a verb to represent the action of remote controlling a computer via the TeamViewer software: "I always TeamViewer into my dad's PC to help him".
Its flagship product, TeamViewer, is an all-in-one solution for remote support, remote access, and online meetings which allows you to assist customers remotely, work with colleagues from a distance and also stay connected with your own devices or assist friends and family members.
The software actively runs on more than 400 million devices, of which at least 30 million are connected to TeamViewer at any point in time. The company’s product portfolio is complemented by solutions for IT monitoring, data backup, anti-malware and web-conferencing.
The solution portfolio of TeamViewer covers the entire business lifecycle, and addresses specific needs including screen sharing, remote desktop, remote access, instant business chat, web and video conferencing, backup, anti-malware, online whiteboards and much more.
