ONE WORKSPACE. ANY DEVICE. ANYWHERE.
Awingu is a unified workspace that offers highly secure and audited access to your company files and legacy, web and SaaS applications in a browser-based workspace, accessible via any browser, on any device.
Gartner calls Awingu a ‘unified workspace’. In our own words: we bring any application and file to the browser of any device. And that includes your personal device. We offer a rock solid, flexible and simple alternative to classic VDI and Application Virtualization technologies such as Citrix XenApp or XenDesktop.
AGGREGATES IT ALL
Windows and Linux apps and desktops
Access all your legacy Windows applications and desktops from within the Awingu browser-based workspace. No changes needed in the applications, nothing to install on your device (laptop, desktop, Apple Mac, Chromebook, Raspberry Pi, etc.). Awingu leverages the “Remote Desktop Protocol” (RDP) to access applications and desktops.
Awingu has out-of-the-box connectors for popular SaaS applications such as Microsoft Office 365, GSuite and Salesforce (Awingu can be used as your “Identity Provider” (IdP)). Furthermore, Awingu can easily be integrated with external IdP’s such as Okta, Google Identity and Microsoft Azure Active Directory which enable you to easily extend the Single-Sign-On to over 5000 SaaS applications.
Provide a secure external access to internal websites (like intranet) and internal web applications (such as your CRM and marketing tools) via the Awingu workspace by leveraging the “Awingu reverse proxy”.
File servers (cloud or classic)
Get access to your company-shared drive, SharePoint and Office 365 OneDrive via your browser. Our web-based file manager provides a unified view across all drives (on premise or in any cloud), supports all common file/folder operations, and offers a drag-and-drop functionality, file sharing and breadcrumb navigation.
Single sign-on experience
Once authenticated into the Awingu workspace, no more need to add login & password credentials to access connected applications, desktops or file servers. Awingu takes care of the ‘Single Sign-On’ in full security.
RICHEST HTML5 EXPERIENCE
Any browser on any device on any OS
You can use your device of choice, be it an Apple MacBook, Windows PC, Linux PC, Google Chromebook, Android tablet, iOS tablet, Samsung Dex, etc. With Awingu you work via any available browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge, BlackBerry Access, Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera, Vivaldi, Brave, etc.) meaning it’s all up to you to choose any device to connect to. Even on a Tesla board computer, or a smart fridge! No installation required!
Proprietary RDP to HTML5 technology
Awingu runs on in-house developed RDP to HTML5 technology. The Awingu HTML5 gateway smoothly connects with RDP platforms in the back-end (e.g. RemoteApp, Remote Desktop, VDI) and provides end users with a secure and high-performance access in HTML5.
We allow end-users to tweak their environment just enough to optimize their productivity by letting them choose favourite applications, bookmarked files and default applications per file type. All of these are optional, of course, and less tech-savvy users don’t have to bother using them.
By the use of our in-house developed Awingu Remote Application Helper, Awingu can provide Smartcard support in any HTML5 session on any browser.
Multiple screen working supported
Awingu allows working from multiple monitors. The streamed application (or desktop) session can be used on up to 16 monitors. Alternatively, different applications can each be opened in a new browser tab. All this by making optimal use of the browser, without local agents or plug-ins installed.
Get notified when an action happens in a tabbed-out application session, just like you would receive a notification in your system tray.
The hassle of having to install printer drivers on your backend and not being able to print from any other printer within an RDP session is a thing of the past. You have the choice to leverage network printers in the office and the Awingu Virtual Printer for home or branch offices. The Awingu Virtual Printer provides a simple solution that does not require managing printer drivers.
SECURE & COMPLIANT
Built-in, Awingu supports both Time-based password (TOTP) or Counter-based password (HOTP) as 2nd factor; meaning you can use native mobile applications such as Microsoft Authenticator and Google Authenticator to generate a secure token without extra costs. Next to the built-in flavor, Awingu supports many other commercial platforms: you can choose to work with your existing Radius equipment, services such as SMS Passcode, Duo Security or Azure MFA. Administrators can make the use of MFA mandatory outside of the company network, and/or they can enable the optional 30-day browser trust.
Leverage (external) identity providers (IdP)
If you’re working with an external IdP (e.g. Azure AD, Okta, Google Identity), you set up a SAML or OpenID Connect connect to this service (full SSO or pre-authentication models are both supported). That way, you can leverage all security services (e.g. MFA, geofencing, etc.) offered by the external service.
Enable the built-in Awingu application session recording to automatically save footage of what happens on your platform. Use it not only for troubleshooting, but also to get a clear view on what e.g. external contractors are using your applications for.
Built-in SSL encryption
Awingu comes built-in with an auto-generated and renewed SSL certificate service. If you prefer to use your own certificates, that is also possible (on a per-tenant level).
Deep usage audit and anomaly detection
Use administration features to view usage behind Awingu: e.g., see who has logged in, what applications were used and what actions were performed upon which files. This is useful for auditing purposes, but also for license (cost) optimization.
Granular usage controls
Administrators control the rights of users or user groups in a very granular way. For each of those, they can open or restrict features such as printing, copy/pasting (from the the local desktop), downloading or uploading, session sharing etc. This enables a highly secure and compliant context.
Context-aware (based on network)
Choose to enable or disable a variety of security features based upon the login location. It makes sense to enforce stronger authentication when your employees are surfing on an unknown or public network, and to tone down on authentication when they log in to their desktop computer at the office to ensure a smooth and easy login.
