The SUD AERO Group, based in Merville (France), is a leading supplier and manufacturer of structural elements for the aerospace industry.
With an internal control and craftsmanship of all the trades related to the manufacture of sub-assemblies for their clients in the aerospace sector, SUD AERO is meeting all types of necessary production flows. The group’s IT infrastructure is built with that agility in mind. At its head for almost five years is Alexandre Delhom (IT Manager), who has been looking for the most scalable solutions in order to meet both the strong budgetary constraints of an SME and the company’s evolution and growth.
Enabling secure access for subcontractors
Due to their agility and security objectives, the IT Department has been using Awingu since early 2018 to, in addition to the meeting the required data security aspects, ensure a stable and easy to use way to let its employees and contractors work from anywhere, on any device.
We are supported by Attitude SI, which introduced us to Awingu when we were looking for a tool capable of making parts of our IT available to our subcontractors, while maintaining the necessary data security requested by our purchasers. We were instantly surprised by the features offered by the solution, especially since it met all our budgetary constraints.
Alexandre Delhom (IT Manager, SUD AERO)
“The solution has been deployed and has fully satisfied our needs for over a year. Furthermore, the deployment was very simple and blazingly fast,” says Alexandre. Currently, SUD AERO uses the Awingu portal and its built-in Reverse Proxy functionalities to give their subcontractors access to parts of their environment. “The next step in our master plan is to generalise the use of Awingu even further. With its multiple architectural possibilities, we could consider outsourcing all our data center operations while maintaining a level of application distribution performance at a lower cost.”
After extensive usage of Awingu within SUD AERO, Alexandre believes its strengths lie in three different fields:
- Stability and reliability
- Exceptional file sharing capability
- New versions published periodically with improved features
“Attitude SI has really been able to support us in integrating the environment by anticipating all our needs and ensuring the link with the vendor. We work in a co-pilot mode in our projects have found that communication is really reactive and testifies of a splendid mastery of the solution,” says Alexandre. “In short, we were well advised to use Awingu!”
On August 13th, BlueKeep (CVE-2019-0708) – the RDP vulnerability we wrote about in our previous blogpost, struck again. The two news wormable flaws are named BlueKeep II & III (or as some mockingly call it, ‘DejaBlue’). In contrast to their predecessor, they affect all Windows versions (including Server) starting from Windows 7 and up. Microsoft and security experts alike strongly suggest putting system patches as a priority on system administrators’ to-do lists.Read More

July 1st – Awingu launches its competitive upgrade program: Migrate 2 Awingu. With this program, businesses that are using alternative solutions such as Citrix, Parallels, VMWare, etc. can benefit from a “3+1” promotion, meaning that if you buy 3 licenses, you get the 4th one for free. This competitive upgrade program is valid from July 1st 2019 until Dec 15th 2019. For details on the steps to take, and applicable conditions, click here.
Awingu provides a ‘turnkey’ browser-based Unified Workspace solution with all features built into the same product and price: remote access to Windows & Linux apps, Desktops, VDI’s in HTML5, file access and sharing, Reverse Proxy, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), encryption, load balancing, usage auditing and more. The beauty of this is that everything runs on a single virtual appliance with a very simple gateway-like architecture. It’s connected to your back-end services via standard protocols (e.g. RDP, WebDAV, CIFS, …). This means that your setup (migration) will be simple and straight-forward. And so will your upgrades and maintenance activities.
We already offer a very solid pricing and TCO proposition. Now, we are making it even stronger.
The rest of this post will dig a bit deeper into Citrix and how it compares to Awingu.
