Parallels Expands Focus on Securing Remote Access Experience

Alludo, a global technology company behind brands including Parallels, Corel, MindManager, and WinZip, has renamed its secure remote access solution Parallels Awingu to Parallels Secure Workspace.

Awingu was acquired last year and the renaming marks a logical next step, establishing Parallels Secure Workspace as a member of the Parallels family, which includes Parallels Desktop, Parallels RAS, Parallels Toolbox and Parallels Access.

“Hybrid and remote work are here to stay, and Parallels Secure Workspace enables organizations to give their employees secure access to the applications they depend on, whether they’re in a boardroom, at the airport, or their home office,” said Christa Quarles, CEO of Alludo. “This renaming is just one step of Parallels’ security journey as we continue our mission to empower knowledge workers’ anywhere, anytime productivity by improving the secure-remote-access experience.”

The renaming of the product underscores Parallels’ focus on the market. According to a recent cybersecurity report, 41 percent of IT professionals reported a security breach within the last 12 months, while 78 percent expressed their intent to increase security budgets in the coming year. This growing emphasis on security stresses the demand for safe and user-friendly solutions, a need that Parallels Secure Workspace effectively addresses.

Parallels Secure Workspace, which has been under development since 2011 in Belgium, distinguishes itself by being “clientless,” operating entirely within the web browser to offer effortless access to virtual apps, desktops, files, SaaS applications and cloud storage anywhere, on any device.

As Awingu transitions to Parallels Secure Workspace, the product will remain unchanged, ensuring a smooth experience for all users without any required actions. Default branding for fresh installs in line with the Parallels brand will also be introduced. For more information on upgrading to the latest version, visit the website.
