Support Chrome OS with BeyondTrust Remote Support

Chromebooks and Chromeboxes are computers which run the Linux-based Chrome operating system. These devices are designed to stay connected to the internet and to use cloud technology with most of their applications and data. Due to their ease of use, straight-forward functionality, and convenience, many companies and universities are beginning to issue Chromebooks and Chromeboxes to their employees and students. This makes having the ability to support these devices incredibly important.

Through click-to-chat technology, BeyondTrust Remote Support enables customers to start web-based, click-to-chat support sessions with representatives from their Chrome OS device1. Representatives can help resolve issues by chatting with customers and viewing the customer screens, streamlining support for Chrome OS device users.
