In this blog post, we’ll give insight into what WVD is, and what it isn’t. Furthermore, let’s take a look at how it compares to Awingu… and how Awingu can “adapt and improve” WVD.Read More

If you’ve ever seen a beverage dispensing or cooling machine in Sweden, there’s a very high chance that it is owned or maintained by Markiscity.

By implementing Awingu on top of RDP, you can greatly reduce the security risk of your IT environment.Read More
