Bomgar 11.1 - The End of Legacy Peer-to-Peer Remote Support?

The new version of Bomgar 11.1 is here and packs quite a punch. It comes loaded with a new feature – Jump Client Scalability – that allows virtually unlimited access and support of unattended systems, such as servers, kiosks, and POS systems. You can now set your Jump clients to passive mode so they listen for a request to initiate a support session instead of maintaining a persistent connection to the Bomgar appliance. This minimizes network bandwidth requirements and frees up resources on the Bomgar appliance. Both passive and the traditional active Jump Clients are cross-platform, centrally manageable, fully auditable and highly secure. So with Jump Client Scalability in Bomgar 11.1, what’s the case for staying with legacy peer-to-peer remote access and support solutions?

The Bomgar API and Outbound Events

Back in my IT admin days, when I would see a product advertise their API for integrations I used to think, “Great…In order to use it I’ll just need to relearn C++ or VB and boom that’s it. Yeah right!” Then I’d go on with my daily administration of Exchange, AD, figuring how and when to push out the next desktop patches, or helping my network guy figure out that pesky SAP connection issue. The point is I didn’t have the time to sharpen up my programming skills in order to figure out how to use a vendor’s complicated API. And although I did have an application development team in my department, they were always tied up with a crazy workload. Also, I just didn’t have the confidence to correctly articulate what was possible with the API.

Introducing the First Collaborative Remote Support App

The iPad (and now the iPad 2) has been a source of multiple conversations in our Community as well as here at Bomgar. While the idea of a flashy Bomgar app for the iPad has always been enticing, we didn’t want to simply throw out another tidbit of technology that didn’t really allow our users to do much more than basic remote access. Since Bomgar is a feature-rich solution that gives our customers a depth of support tools and functionality that far outweighs the competition, we didn’t want to offer anything less when it came to remote support from the iPad.
