The Awingu 5.2.4 maintenance release is now available!
Give contractors an easy, secure and cost-effective access to your IT systems on their own device.
No need to buy and manage hardware for your contractors. No need to spend time installing complex agents or clients on devices that are not under your control. Thanks to Awingu, your contractors can work on your applications, desktops and file shares through the browser of their own device in full security.
Users can access applications, desktops and files via their browser. Just authenticate with the built-in Awingu MFA and get started. This also means getting a lot less support tickets, and you don’t need to take any risks accessing a device that is not owned or managed by your IT department.
Contractors access your IT systems via a device that is not under your control. And that’s fine. Nothing is running locally on their device, they only access these systems they have the right to access, and you can block things like copy/paste and printing.
Your contractors can access confidential data? No problem, Awingu offers a built-in usage audit. You’ll have a log on what systems were accessed when. You can optionally even record full sessions for full visibility.
Why buy hardware for your contractors? They probably already have a device anyway. With Awingu, you can reduce up to 44% on your End-user Computing for contractors.
Limit access to your systems for your home countries? That’s perfectly possible with Awingu’s context-awareness.
A study performed by Awingu shows that combining Awingu and a sensible BYOD policy can save you up to 45% in end-user computing costs. Even if BYOD is not your default policy for all employees, it’s worth investigating what user-groups can be equipped productively.
“Friends don’t let friends use VPN.” I read this claim in a blog post by Matthew Sullivan (whom I give all creative credits) and was immediately sold into the line. In this blog post we’ll discuss why classic VPN (Virtual Private Network) solutions are not ‘good enough’ anymore for businesses to enable remote working and teleworking.
