Delight customers with easy support request and communication features

With N-able Take Control, customers can request support in a variety of convenient ways: through email, live chat, a keyboard tray icon, or a “Get Support” button you can embed on your website. Take Control makes it easy for users to reach you quickly, which is critical to customer satisfaction.

Once you are connected to a customer in a support session, Take Control offers multiple ways to directly communicate, helping the technician get to the root of the issue quickly. Technicians and users can chat live, call using built-in VoIP, or even video call with the mobile app. Customers feel heard and taken care of with so many easy, one-on-one ways to communicate.

And when the session concludes, a custom-designed survey can automatically be sent to the end user. This kind of just-in-time feedback is crucial for the MSP to understand what aspects of their service work well, and where there might be opportunities for improvement.

Take Control Remote IT support

Help maintain tight safeguards with true multilayer end-to-end security

It’s crucial that your remote desktop software is designed with layers of tight security. If cybercriminals are able to take advantage of an insecure remote connection, they can install malicious software with potentially disastrous consequences. N-able Take Control is designed from the ground up with security in mind to help prevent this from occurring.

Take Control security starts with its development environment.  All data and key transmission is encrypted with Diffie-Hellman Elliptic Curve and AES-256 encryption protocols. Access is completely controlled by you with incredibly granular technician access controls. Passwords can be completely safeguarded using the built-in Secrets Vaults feature, or the N-able Passportal fully integrated password management solution. Finally, application access can be gated with two-factor authentication using Google Authenticator, Duo Mobile, Authy, and Microsoft Authenticator.

On top of all that, additional safeguards, like automatic clipboard deletion and idle sessions timeout controls, help maintain security during individual remote sessions.

When we say Take Control was designed with security in mind, we mean it.
