LogMeIn Now Owns GoToAssist, Along with the Rest of the GoTo Family of Products
by Justin Brock •
LogMeIn closed its merger with Citrix Systems' GoTo business earlier this year, and in a recent interview, LogMeIn CEO Bill Wagner stated, "there will be some consolidation within the next year, particularly with overlapping remote access products."
What will happen with products such as LogMeIn Rescue and GoToAssist is yet to be seen, but those concerned about their remote access solution may find this is a good time to consider other options.
Bomgar offers superior alternatives to many of the products that are now part of the LogMeIn and GoTo families. Our unique approach to secure access makes an apples-to-apples comparison challenging, but below is a basic infographic showing how our solutions stack up to help you evaluate your options.
