LogMeIn Hamachi is a virtual networking service that can be set up in minutes and enables secure remote access to your business network anywhere there is an Internet connection. Unlike traditional hardware and software based VPN systems, Hamachi is an on-demand virtual networking service that allows you to focus your time and energy on providing the remote connections your users and systems need, and not the technology or infrastructure you are using to support them.
Who Should Use LogMeIn Hamachi?
• IT Support: Building a Mobile Office LAN
Many mobile workers use their laptops in the office while connected to their company’s shared resources (file
servers, network printers, mail servers, etc.). But if a user moves away from the local network, he will no longer
be able to access these resources. Software that is configured to work inside the office becomes useless outside
Using Hamachi, mobile workers become members of a Hamachi network wherein all shared resources are also
network members. As a result, network configurations can remain unchanged. Hamachi sets up exactly the same
networking environment for the mobile user no matter where he is.
• IT Support: Setting Up Network Access for Home Workers
Home workers can be more productive when they have secure access to shared IT resources. Using the Hamachi
client, home workers gain a secure tunnel directly into their company’s network. They can work from home and
still access the resources they need.
• Outsourced IT: Managing Multiple Networks
A service provider with a number of administrators on his team wants to set up and maintain multiple Hamachi
networks for multiple customers. He uses LogMeIn Central to create Hamachi networks, deploy Hamachi clients,
and apply default and custom settings for each customer. He can also manage other administrators in his
organization, generate client activity reports, and manage network activity.
• Small to Medium Sized Organizations: Virtual LAN
Organizations without a physical LAN can use the mesh network type to set up a virtual corporate LAN.
