Tampa (Florida, USA), Ghent (Belgium), Oct. 5, 2021 – Awingu, maker of a browser-based secure remote access and Unified Workspace solution, and OPSWAT, a global leader in critical infrastructure cybersecurity, including the MetaAccess Platform. The partnership enables joint customers to combine the strengths of OPSWAT MetaAccess’ device posture validation with Awingu’s browser-based workspace access. Before users can access their Awingu workspace, OPSWAT MetaAccess will guarantee that their endpoints are compliant with set rules, such as device compliance, vulnerability and patch management and AV Multi-Scanning technology. This combined solution greatly mitigates risks.
Awingu customers are enabled to access their applications, desktops and file servers via the browser, as well as from any device, anywhere. This often includes the use of ‘Bring-Your-Own-Device’ (BYOD) and loosely managed devices such as for example Windows Laptops or Apple Macbooks. Combined with OPSWAT MetaAccess, organizations can now add an additional condition for access based on the posture of the endpoint. IT administrators can define a minimum compliance level of endpoints as a context before allowing access into the Awingu workspace. This joint capability is unique in its simplicity of setup, management and usage, and it empowers organizations in their roll-out of zero-trust strategies: never trust, always verify.
Awingu produces a browser-based Unified Workspace solution. It allows users to work and collaborate from virtually anywhere using any device compatible with HTML5 browsers. As a turnkey solution, Awingu offers businesses the ease and convenience of platform-independent mobility and offers everything you need to stay productive: legacy and cloud applications, documents and data. Awingu requires zero configuration and zero client software installation, making IT administration extremely simple. Awingu is headquartered in Ghent, Belgium, with offices in the United States.
