In contrast to a VPN (virtual private network), GoToMyPC enables Information Systems management with a way to provide secure remote pc access to corporate computing resources without security loss, poor performance issues and extra management resources.
A VPN (with there special hardware, software and config requirements) can be extrememely time-consuming and very expensive to implement. In contrast, GoToMyPC Pro is a completely Web-based solution that small organizations can implement in just minutes — even on wireless mobile devices. While you would still probably want a VPN for inter-connecting a LAN, for remote employees, GoToMyPC Pro offers a much more secure solution that easily integrates with an existing network and security infrastructure.

If security is a concern, self-hosted solution would be better than hosted services like GoToMyPC. The initial cost would be higher and set up would be more complicated. However, if security is your main concern, it be worth the trouble to go with an on-premise product like Bomgar (http://www.bomgar.com) or RHUB (http://www.rhubcom.com)

You may also consider two companies that make support appliances that plug into your network: Bomgar and RHUB's TurboMeeting. Both companies' appliances and remote support software are easy to install. The RHUB appliance was a better deal when I last checked prices.
