To help pay his college tuition, Joel Bomgar began working as a field network engineer for a Jackson, Mississippi-based systems integrator in 2002. When not in class, he could be found driving around the Jackson area in his 1979 Buick LeSabre providing IT support to local businesses. Often, the non-billable drive time took longer than the actual service calls. It didn't take long for Joel to realize "there had to be a way" to spend less time driving in the Mississippi heat and more time solving his clients' problems.
Unable to find an existing solution that would allow him to access and manage his customers' computers over the internet, Joel decided to take matters into his own hands and develop his own technology. Although he was still working his way through college, Joel spent many late nights coding and eating pizza to develop a functional remote support solution. Leveraging the solution he quickly doubled the number of customers he could support and cut his rather uncomfortable drive time in half. The instant success led him to believe there might be a market for his creation, so he made up a product brochure, launched a static web site and waited.
Much to his surprise, his wait was short as he quickly began receiving calls and orders for the product. After making $24,000 in less than two months, Joel was convinced he had uncovered a significant market opportunity, but knew he could not capitalize on the opportunity alone. He soon enlisted the assistance of two friends and fellow Resident Assistants from school: Nathan McNeill and Patrick Norman - both of whom he knew were smart, hardworking, dedicated problem solvers.
During the next decade, Bomgar's founding trio successfully led the company from a college campus project to an industry leader. They credit the success to a discipline of focus and a set of core values based in Biblical principles.

Bomgar knows the unique challenges of remote support in an enterprise environment. People and systems are dispersed far beyond the network. Firewalls, access barriers and security regulations complicate the support process. Even with these challenges, support must still work seamlessly across multiple platforms to provide end-users with a consistent experience.
Fortunately, Bomgar is designed for the unique challenges of the enterprise. Our remote support solutions give support organizations easy, secure access to remote computers and mobile devices.
