In this article, we’ll be comparing two powerful remote management tools called Bomgar and LogMeIn. Both options provide plenty of useful features, troubleshooting solutions, and more… ensuring remote work productivity faces fewer and fewer challenges.

While both options are exceptional at providing easy access to remote devices, we’ll go over their key strengths, weaknesses, and prices to help readers select the right tool for their needs.


BeyondTrust rank based on Capterra reviews

Bomgar offers one of the most diverse and comprehensive feature catalogs, outperforming most competitor software in its category. Additionally, the software enables remote management over desktops and mobile devices.

The BeyondTrust Remote Support feature (previously called “Bomgar Remote Support”), allows users to access, view, and control desktops, laptops, mobile devices- and even POS systems!
Bomgar’s “File Transfer” feature allows users to transmit valuable files from one remotely accessed computer to the physical machine that the user is operating from.

Transferring files is easy and practically instantaneous, meaning that users can easily copy, share, or transfer files of any type (like images, mp3s, etc.) Bomgar even makes simple work of remote printing, too!

LogMeIn Pro rank based on Capterra reviews

LogMeIn Pro is one of the most beloved remote access tools on the market. Owned by the same company that developed the collaborative tool: GoToMeeting, LogMeIn’s feature suite primarily targets large-scale businesses. LogMeIn also offers additional (and exclusive) bonuses such as 1 TB of cloud storage, and LastPass Premium subscriptions (a password management service) with every plan.

LogMeIn users can perform remote desktop tasks via the app, or a web browser (though the web browser may lack some of the features.) The only downside: LogMeIn stopped offering a free version of their software quite some time ago (January 2014.)



Bomgar (or BeyondTrust Remote Support) enables complete control over a remote desktop. This means users (like tech support professionals) can troubleshoot and fix system issues without being physically present.

Here are some cool features to try:

  • • Remotely manipulate the end user’s desktop as if physically in front of the screen
  • • Access the remote computer regardless of whether anyone else is physically present at the remote computer (this feature is great if an end-user isn’t very tech-savvy)
  • • Access the remote user’s camera. An excellent option for troubleshooting situations surrounding WiFi connections, as it makes it possible to see the physical router or server. This feature only functions on iOS and Android mobile devices, and users can even control a device’s flashlight, auto-focus, and zoom
  • • Use annotations to assist customers in solving tech issues on their own. With a remote camera, the support professional can write helpful notes, or draw on the screen directly
  • • Implement chat or voice communication to walk the end-user through troubleshooting issues


LogMeIn Pro offers an array of features that make accessing files (and remotely controlling a desktop) simple and easy.

The File Manager enables quick access to the host machine’s file system, whereas IT professionals will enjoy the convenient split display option that allows for easy drag-and-drop file sharing between client and host computers. This is especially helpful when it’s time to share files that are too large to send via email.

The Wake On LAN feature ensures a remote computer is always ready to go when the user needs it.

Whiteboard Drawing allows meeting hosts to direct attention to items on-screen, better facilitating support sessions. If the user needs to prepare a demonstration ahead of time, the Screen Record feature makes that easy, and even comes with AVI output.

Finally, graphic designers, web designers, developers (or anyone who relies on multiple desktops) will enjoy LogMeIn’s intuitive Multiple Monitor capabilities.

Multiple Monitor support allows users to view monitors individually on a single screen, or replicate a workstation exactly with multi-monitor host-to-client support. Programs and files stay organized to the user’s preferences, ensuring productivity no matter where the user is working from.

Bomgar and LogMeIn offer a plethora of pricing options to choose from. Now that users are better informed about these two apps, they can compare the pricing policy with the other remote tools like Bomgar and Teamviewer.

LogMeIn Pro

Pro offers three plans with valuable labels. Power Users start at $70 per month, Individuals at $30, and Small Companies at $129 monthly. The same essential features are accessible by all plans, including a unique 1TB of file storage, limitless remote computer access, and remote printing.

On the other hand, individuals only have access to two computers, Power Users to five, and Small Companies 10. Each plan comes with more free licenses of the LastPass Premium’s password manager, and the amount of licenses increases with each plan.


Again, the Individuals plan has a monthly fee of $30 and is invoiced annually at $349.99. You’ll also get a One LastPass Premium license and two personal computers.

You will receive the above features, including unlimited users, remote access, remote printing, and 1TB of file storage. This plan also allows you to remotely watch your device fully on a second local screen using a multi-monitor display feature.

Power Users

At $70 per month or $839.99 yearly, the Power Users plan gives you access to up to five computers and three LastPass Premium subscriptions.

The features of this plan remain the same, including 1TB of file storage, multi-monitor display, unlimited users, remote access, and printing from PCs.

Small Businesses

The final plan is that of the Small Businesses, which comes in at $129 per month and is billed $1,539.99 yearly. This plan level gives you access to five LastPass Premium licenses and up to ten Computers. The features and abilities of this plan are similar to the other plans in every way.

Bomgar (BeyondTrust)

Bomgar (BeyondTrust) provides physical remote support. What that means is: customers purchase a Bomgar (BeyondTrust) appliance, and receive support, upgrades, and maintenance for an annual fee.

This avoids monthly fees frequently required by SAAS products, and actually lowers the cost of ownership overall.

Problems related to SaaS deployment are also side-stepped, as Bomgar’s been configured as a dedicated cloud-hosted appliance in a secure Bomgar datacenter.

• Cloud annual billing will cost $2097/per concurrent license
