Cloud Hosted Apps

Free your staff to work anywhere, from any device

Regardless of where you are working, or on which device, Cloud Hosted Apps provide a familiar experience all the time.
Awingu provides you with secure access to your Windows and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps and files in one online workplace—anywhere, on any Web browser, and any device.
Microsoft has announced that the end-of-life for Azure RemoteApp will occur in August 2017. Awingu provides an easy way to securely access all of your applications, as a viable alternative to Citrix XenApp, and works either in your own cloud or on Microsoft Azure.

How does Awingu do this?
Windows application delivered to any device
Awingu simply works out-of-the-box, on the device of your choice to help increase productivity. No software installation is needed, nor do you need a manual. Your Windows applications will now appear on your chosen device, no matter whether it runs a Microsoft Windows operating system or not.  The only requirement is a modern browser with HTML5 capabilities.
Web-based file browser
Get access to your company network shared drives, SharePoint and Office365 OneDrive via your browser.  Our Web-based file manager provides a unified view across all drives, it supports all common file/folder operations, and offers drag-and-drop functionality, file sharing and breadcrumb navigation
Eliminate the high costs associated with Citrix and complex VPNs
Replace the high costs associated with Citrix with an easy-to-use solution that requires no client installation. We offer a simple alternative to VDI and application virtualisation technologies such as Citrix Xenapp or XenDesktop. Costly, hard to manage VPNs become a thing of the past when you have an encrypted connection through an intuitive browser interface.
Collaboration out of the box
Collaboration is a big part of Awingu.  We enable collaboration with both your Windows applications as well as your documents.  Ask Awingu to share your application session or a unique URL for your document and access can be provided.  When sharing an application session, the other users can request control as well as see your working, enabling seamless working and sharing.  For document sharing, Awingu will provide a URL that gives either preview or download access to files and folders without copying these files to an external system.  This removes the need for un-trusted file sharing solutions, enabling you to remain in control.
Secure solution
Awingu is SSL-encrypted and offers strong authentication to ensure high security when logging into your online work-space. We give you granular control over access rights and user activity. To further enhance security you can enable “Multi-Factor Authentication”, either using the built in tools or those provided Google, Microsoft or others that can use RADIUS technology, such as the common solutions from RSA Security.
Ensure the highest levels of security, prevent data leakage and audit contractor access
Prevent “downloaded” data being left on any device used to access confidential company information, including unmanaged devices used by seasonal or short-term contractors.
Eliminate data loss risks by accessing your apps with all their normal online workplace controls and security.
Single-Sign-On (SSO)
Once logged into Awingu, you won’t have to re-authenticate in any of the applications linked to your personal online workplace. This means Awingu acts as an “Identity Provider” (IDP). We have out-of-the-box connectors with popular SaaS applications such as Microsoft Office 365, Google Apps for Work, Sales force, Dropbox and many more.
