Ghent, June 14th, 2021– Awingu is pleased to announce its partnership with EYRA Group. Awingu’s Unified Workspace technology perfectly fits in the Swiss ICT Group – more specifically, that of the EYRA Cloud Business Unit, which focused on secure solutions around location-independent working through innovative digital technologies.
“We’re very excited about this partnership”, says Awingu CEO Walter Van Uytven. “Switzerland is a strategically interesting market for Awingu, as it is one of Europe’s strongholds in terms of data compliance. EYRA in particular is a perfect fit with Awingu’s product philosophy: their highly secure SwissCloud solutions tie in neatly with how our product is designed.” EYRA will offer Awingu in their SwissCloud model, meaning they offer a Swiss hosted and managed “Workplace-as-a-Service” to their customers. EYRA’s Cloud Business Unit will also enable Awingu in on-premises environments.
André Blanc, Adaptative Cloud Solutions Director at Eyra Group: “With its focus on accessibility and security, Awingu’s product has an excellent synergy with our SwissCloud solutions. The pandemic is nearing its final phase, but we’re convinced that remote working is here to stay. Now more than ever, it is necessary for people need to adopt the right security measures when enabling this ‘work-from-anywhere’ approach, and Awingu does this brilliantly. As work from home will become the norm in Switzerland for the future, we are thrilled to have Awingu’s highly secure and flexible workspace in our product portfolio.”
Awingu’s solution provides businesses and organizations of all sizes with a cost-effective and simple workplace solution. Unlike most solutions in the market, Awingu does not require agents or software to be installed on end-user devices. Awingu runs entirely in the browser, where it aggregates all company files and applications, including SaaS and “legacy” Windows or Linux applications into one online workspace with just one login. Users simply log in through their browser from any device, anywhere. Awingu is not only easy to use, but also adds ‘Zero Trust’ level security out-of-the-box.
