Access any remote system or device

Assist facilitates efficient access to any remote PC, tablet, or mobile phone. All you have to do is initiate a session and share the session information with your customer. Once they join the session, you can access and control their device.

Digitize organization workflows

Remote support capability helps you quickly automate all tasks within the organization. All work processes in the enterprise will be made undemanding.



How secure is Zoho Assist?

Assist is built with industry-standard protocols, including SSL and 256-bit AES encryption, to ensure the highest standard of remote access security for business and personal use.

How secure is Zoho Assist?

    Session authentication codes

    All Assist sessions require a session code to authenticate the customer. The technician must share a unique session ID with the customer so they can receive remote support.


    Inactive session timeout

    For security purposes, any session conducted with Zoho Assist will automatically terminate after a fixed timeframe set by the technician.


    Two-factor authentication

    Two-factor authentication provides an additional layer of security for Assist users.



    Assist is a highly firewall-friendly tool, which will not force you to compromise on security during a remote access or control session.


    Session recording

    With the recording feature, remote support and unattended access sessions can be recorded and stored. Recorded sessions can be viewed at a later stage for reference or audit purposes when required.


    Antivirus compatible

    Unlike most support software, Assist is readily compatible with all major antivirus software on the market.


    Action log viewer

    Assist lets you view and keep a track of all the activities that take place in your organization with this viewer.


    Consent-based access

    Assist issues a confirmation prompt when you initiate a session. The customer must provide approval when the prompt appears to allow the technician to access and control their system.


    Data privacy

    With Assist's data anonymization feature, all personally identifiable information, such as a user's IP address and email address, will be masked completely.

Key features of remote access solution

Assist is feature-filled and secure remote access software with a designated technician and customer panel that eases navigation through the system during active remote support sessions.
