Awingu Set to Revolutionize Remote Access to Your Data
SAN FRANCISCO, June 9, 2016 – Awingu, a developer of online workspace aggregator software, today announced an alliance with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) to expand its mobility solution into the U.S. reseller channel. Awingu software aggregates all company files and applications to one, secure online workspace that is accessed using any device with an HTML5 browser. The web-based mobility solution works out-of-the-box and does not require any client software to be installed on the device itself.
This agreement extends the EMEA Ingram Micro relationship that was established last year with Awingu. The expanded agreement allows Ingram Micro to distribute both perpetual and subscription-based Awingu licensing to the U.S. channel.
“We are pleased to support Awingu, which uses the power of the latest web technology to mobilize all company applications regardless of where they physically reside, whether in the cloud or on premise,” says Scott Zahl, vice president, Advanced Solutions, Ingram Micro. “Awingu has the advantage of working with cloud services and pairs with our broad portfolio of advanced mobility solutions.”
Walter Van Uytven, Awingu CEO, adds, “I’m excited about this relationship and joint go-to-market with Ingram Micro. Our value proposition will enable greater adoption and channel awareness for our powerful yet simple mobility solution that is revolutionizing how businesses access their data remotely. Teaming up also allows us to leverage the extensive reach of Ingram Micro and the added value of experienced sales and marketing teams across the U.S.”
Today’s office environment typically combines SaaS, Web, Windows Server, Windows Desktop and older legacy applications. With Awingu, all your office applications can run on a server using RDP without any need to reprogram. This means big cost savings for businesses since they don’t need to change a thing to their current IT, and within a matter of hours, all company applications can be securely accessed from one online workspace using any device.
Awingu develops software to simplify enterprise mobility and liberate legacy applications. Our software aggregates all company files and applications to one secure online workspace that can be accessed from any device or OS using any HTML5-based browser. Awingu mobilizes all company applications without disrupting how you run your IT and works with any cloud services. No agent is required on personal or corporate devices, and collaboration and file sharing is as simple as sending a URL. IT assets remain centrally secure and no data footprint is ever left behind for a safe way to implement BYOD. Awingu is the fastest and easiest way to empower a mobile workforce.
