Teamviewer sub-applications better recognition

Not applicable


  Many of our users are using Teamviewer to access customers computers outside the company. Unfortunatly, by default Teamviewer will also share their desktops too, through a permanent connection to Teamviewer servers. In addition, many of our users are using it to access their office computers from home, without using corporate VPN. When Teamviewer is running on a computer, it is potentially open to anyone inside Teamviewer company or anyone who knows the small secret 4 digit code.

To sum up, we would like to allow our users to use Teamviewer as a client to access remote PCs outside the company but block screen/resource sharing of their own PC via Teamviewer because it is of course big security problem. Sub-applications for teamviewer like 'teamviewer-client' and 'teamviewer-sharing' would be great help for us.

Thank you for your time.

I would suggest to request app enhancement from our Apps and Threats Research Center.

From there you can click on Submit an app and provide details there.



Application function for teamviewer-sharing will be available in the next 1-2 content updates. You can use it to identify all incoming connections to a PC.

We have the same issue.

Now we are able to select 3 different types of teamviewer :




The base is for outgoing and this is the only one we've allowed.

However, sometimes people still can access their company pc's from home and the traffic is detected as team-viewer base.

Has teamviewer altered it's software so the application recognition isn't working as it should anymore ?
