The combination of Awingu and the Parallels® Remote Application Server platform will give end users added flexibility to securely work from anywhere on any device, or OS.
OTTAWA — Corel announced it has acquired Awingu, a provider of secure remote access technology, for an undisclosed amount.
Corel says Awingu will become a part of the Parallels brand portfolio. The company anticipates that the combination of Awingu and the Parallels® Remote Application Server platform will give end users added flexibility to securely work from anywhere on any device, or OS.
Parallels, part of the Corel group, is an all-in-one application delivery and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) solution that provides remote access to virtual applications and desktops delivered through on-premises, hybrid, or cloud-based environments.
Awingu can help provide a secure way for organizations to facilitate “bring-your-own device” (BYOD) or work from anywhere policies through its unified workspace. With this technology acquisition, the Parallels RAS platform can give users the ability to access legacy and cloud-native applications and files as well as help reduce concerns over data security and infrastructure complexity from IT teams.
“The future of work is now; we are living it. The pandemic further accelerated the need for organizations to determine and shift their remote and hybrid work infrastructures. Now, organizations are figuring out how they can cater to the flexibility that employees want with their workplaces while also ensuring secure and efficient access,” said Prashant Ketkar, chief technology and product officer, Corel in a statement.
