Has Anyone used Teamviewer for remote access?   How secure is this program?  What other program would you recommend for remote access and remote control session?   We need something secure.  

Any Idea is greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I've used it now and then and think it is secure enough. Something similar is logmein. An advantage of teamviewer over logmein is that it includes a 2 panel filemanager which you can use to transfer files between yours and the remote PC. With logmein you have to install a separate tool hamachi, and then mount the driver letters in order to be able to transfer files (that part really is a VPN).
