How does Awingu’s context-awareness work?
As of Awingu 5.0 (Oct 28th 2020), Awingu supports context awareness. Admins can define countries and/or IP addresses are safe zones per user (group). Within those safety zones, users can access all applications and file shares. Outside of the safety zone (e.g. in a foreign country), users will either be pushed to authenticate with MFA or just not be able to get access. This applies to all applications and file shares where the safety zone is setup. You can image setup of context awareness for share drives with sensitive data and applications like email clients and ERPs. Awingu’s recommendation, in all cases, is to always use MFA.
