AWINGU FOR BUSINESSES

NEXTEL ADOPTS AWINGU TO DRIVE MOBILITY

Nextel is an ICT player in the BeNeLux. With 200 out of 300 ‘mobile workers’, mobility was a core need. Nextel adopted Awingu as an alternative to classic VPN’s to facilitate access to core applications and data to these mobile workers.

Benefits:

Easy to use: Easy access via a simple browser on any device to core Nextel applications; and this for field engineers, sales as for ‘teleworkers’

Secure: Full audit of usage available out-of-the-box, and Awingu is deployed in the Nextel’s controlled datacenter

Easy to manage: Easy to setup, no need to configure and manage complex VPN’s, no need to install clients on end-devices, etc.

Awingu is one of our important mobility and efficiency solutions.

Awingu offers me a lot of benefits as IT professional: One of these advantages is that I don’t need to configure or manage complex VPN’s, nor install clients on end-devices. You only need to give a URL, and people can start.

When an employee’s PC is broken or lost, he/she can just pick-up another device and continue working without loss of data.

AVIAPARTNER

AVIAPARTNER DEPLOYS AWINGU AS A PERFECT ALTERNATIVE TO CITRIX

Aviapartner is one of the leading international independent providers of ground handling services across 37 airports. They employ around nearly 6000 staff serving needs of 30 million passengers. They also manage cargo handling for around 1 million tons of cargo each year.

AviaPartner was fully deployed on Citrix, but they found this to be a cost-inefficient solution for AviaPartner. With a help from Altogee, they chose to try Awingu deployed on Microsoft’s Azure platform.

The switch to Awingu brought many advantages to AviaPartner:

  • Awingu provided significant cost gains compared to Citrix.
  • Awingu furthermore makes it easy to support multiple devices. To be full “platform agnostic”. AviaPartner currently supports over a dozen devices from their airport based terminals to MacBooks, iPads, etc. and users need to get access their core applications on all devices, anywhere.
  • They adopted Awingu’s built-in One-Time-Password solution and phase-out the use of classic MFA tokens

 

Mobile working on any type of device is crucial to our business. We operate in a line of business where people need mobile access to their core applications and data: be it ‘groundstaff’ in the airport terminal or management on the road.

We choose to work with our strategic advisor and partner AltoGee to find a good and cost-effective solution to our needs.

AviaPartner also depends a lot on seasonal workers. In peak periods, our staffing can easily double. Awingu’s concurrent-user based licensing model neatly covers this.

FERRETTI IMPROVES MOBILITY WITH AWINGU

Ferretti Group is a world leader in design, construction and sale of luxury yachts and boats. Established in 1968, today the Ferretti Group has over 1500 employees and is present in over 80 countries. Together with the main production and seven offices in Italy, they also have offices and sales centers in Florida, Shanghai and Hong Kong.

In 2016 the Ferretti Group started to centralize their IT environment leveraging Microsoft’s RDS, but the standard Microsoft solution showed some weaknesses – for example, the configuration of the client on the end-user device brought challenges for mobile users such as sales.

To hook-up mobile workers into the central IT platform, Ferretti decided to implement Awingu and they got many benefits by choosing Awingu:

  • Deployment was easy and very fast
  • Employees can access files from any device, no local agent needed on the end-user devices
  • Awingu runs on their own existing infrastructure

For an international company like Ferretti, mobility is crucial and by enabling simplified access to apps and files, their productivity and sales activity got easier and faster.

This use case was made possible via our partner in Bologna, Alya IT.

The standard Microsoft RDS solution also showed some weaknesses. For example, the configuration of the client on the end-user device brought challenges for mobile users such as sales.

We deployed Awingu on our hyper-converged Nutanix infrastructure in less than one hour. It is a very straight-forward solution.

Our sales guys can access apps easily without any need for installing or managing any local client.

PROXIMUS CHOOSES AWINGU TO CREATE A FLEXIBLE AND MOBILE WORKING ENVIRONMENT

Proximus is a telecommunication & ICT company operating in the Belgian and international markets, providing services to residential, enterprise and public customers. The mission of Proximus is to connect everyone, enable better living and smarter working. Clearly, it was important for Proximus to put the money where the mouth is, and apply those principles themselves. With over 14 000 employees, they have a wide and diverse network of people working not only from the office but also from other environments, like other companies or in the field.

Today, Awingu is enabled for Proximus employees, and is used in multiple use-cases such as:

  • Shop-in-the-shop: Sales representatives can securely connect to applications and data from unmanaged devices.
  • Telework: Bring Your Own Device access for home and remote workers
  • Field technicians: Easier way for the field workers to connect to the applications and data via a tablet or other device

Benefits

  • Enables flexible and mobile working on any device, anywhere, anytime
  • Saving costs and time in setup of new shop-in-shop locations
  • Improved user-experience for field staff and tele/remote workers
  • Boost internal culture of collaboration

SHARE THIS STORY:

Mobility is an important part of our digital work environment, it means being able to work on any device, anytime and anywhere. Awingu supports this approach. It enables you to consult older systems, even if you are on the move.

As Proximus employees at Fnac, we use Fnac computers to work. To access the Proximus intranet, we use Awingu. Awingu is not just available on PCs here but any place and any device – whether it is a smartphone, a tablet or a personal laptop. All you need is a login, password and a token. Awingu is really user-friendly.

With Awingu, my work is much easier than before. We used to have a much heavier laptop that was harder to carry around. Now we use Awingu on a tablet to fill out our checklists in the field.

EYE4U ADOPTS AWINGU AS A MINIMUM EFFORT AND HIGHLY SECURE SOLUTION

EYE4U is a Danish company that supplies professional video surveillance solutions.  Their clients base consists mostly of retailers, shopping centers, grocery stores and logistic centers. For those instances, it is crucial that they can keep an eye on what happens in their distribution centers, which are often packed with expensive goods. The video surveillance solution serves not only as a safety measure against burglary, but also as an additional tracking method (next to the use of scanners) of what enters and leaves the warehouse. Furthermore, the software also reports visitor flows and provide insightful analyses and statistics.

As a ‘total supplier’, EYE4U not only delivers the necessary hardware (camera’s, server towers, etc.) and installation, but also the surveillance software that allows their customers to monitor their system. They chose Awingu as an added and highly secure layer to connect with that software, together with the added benefit of providing access to their surveillance system from any device.

Why Awingu?

  • Security: add an extra security layer (such as MFA and SSL offloading) to their surveillance software to protect the valuable data that it stores
  • No hassle: Awingu is quickly deployed, fully functional and is used to minimize any additional effort in terms of connecting to or securing the data
  • Better than competition: unlike competing solutions like Citrix XenApp, Awingu is easy to use, affordable and highly secure

Because of the data’s sensitivity, IT departments demand a high level of security. With Awingu, we can facilitate this.

Awingu offers a highly secure access to our software, whilst minimizing any configuration effort.

More and more, we see that Awingu is used to add a whole new surveillance and usage perspective to mainstream virtualization software.

Markiscity Services AB

MARKISCITY COMBATS RANSOMWARE WITH AWINGU

If you’ve ever seen a beverage dispensing machine in Sweden, there’s a very high chance that it is owned and maintained by Markiscity. They are a Swedish warehouse management subcontractor for companies like Coca-Cola, Spendrups, Carlsberg and Swedish Match. After being hit by two consecutive ransomware attacks, they chose Awingu to make their data management more secure, and to arm themselves against another intrusion. The attacks (which happened during the worldwide WannaCry attacks) caused serious problems for the company and their IT partner, Toolbox.

Awingu’s unified workspace was part of a threefold strategy to minimize the risk of being hit again and was deployed together with the autonomous endpoint security software SentinelOne to protect their servers and client computer from threats, and the VM backup solution Nakivo.

Why Awingu?

  • Safe data access: With Awingu, Markiscity employees can access all their data without storing it locally. All the documents stay on their servers, and thus they prevent leaks or access from malicious entities.
  • Access legacy applications anywhere: employees can access their legacy WMS software by making a direct RDP connection to their backend.
  • Anywhere: whether it’s at the office, at home, in the warehouse or in the field to check on the beverage dispensers, employees can access the same workspace from any device via any browser.
  • Easy to set up and manage: Awingu was set up in a matter of hours, and requires very little maintenance.

Markiscity needed to protect its data against future attacks, and Awingu was an essential component in achieving that.

We haven’t found a product to give access to legacy applications that is as simple and secure at the same time as Awingu.
