Cameyo, ASG Africa Announce Partnership to Deliver Virtual Application to Azure Customers Throughout MENA

Cameyo | June 18, 2020

  • Cameyo, the virtual application delivery platform that delivers Windows and internal web applications to any device from the browser without the need for VPNs.

  • Cameyo's virtual application delivery platform is a key enabler of all three of those trends, making it extremely simple and cost-productive to provide access to legacy applications on any device, from the browser.

  • Unlike Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) products that take months to deploy and saddle organizations with ongoing cost and complexity, Cameyo can be deployed in hours for a fraction of the cost.


Cameyo, the virtual application delivery platform that delivers Windows and internal web applications to any device from the browser without the need for VPNs, today announced it has partnered with ASG Africa, a premier IT solutions and services provider, to make Cameyo available to all organizations throughout Africa and the Middle East on Microsoft Azure. Organizations who need to provide their people with secure access to Windows and internal web apps from the browser can now experience all of the benefits of Cameyo within their own instance of Azure.

 

ASG Africa has a long history of working with large enterprises to meet their digital transformation, remote work, and legacy application migration needs. Cameyo's virtual application delivery platform is a key enabler of all three of those trends, making it extremely simple and cost-productive to provide access to legacy applications on any device, from the browser. And as Azure becomes the cloud platform of choice for many organizations, this enables us to give our Azure customers - and those looking to move to Azure - the best possible experience with Cameyo,

Vaughn Atkins, Sales Manager at ASG Africa.

Together, ASG Africa and Cameyo are helping organizations of all sizes enable:

• Remote Work and the Modern Workplace - Whether organizations are looking for immediate solutions to enable fully-remote teams or long-term solutions that support a hybrid office/home workplace after COVID-19, Cameyo ensures that all employees maintain access to their business-critical applications from anywhere. And Cameyo's NoVPN capabilities deliver both Windows and internal web apps to any device without the need for VPNs.

• Digital Transformation - As organizations shift to the cloud, they still need to provide people with access to the critical legacy Windows applications they need to stay productive – even if those apps haven't been web-enabled. Unlike Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and Desktop as a Service (DaaS) products that take months to deploy and saddle organizations with ongoing cost and complexity, Cameyo can be deployed in hours for a fraction of the cost.

• Legacy Application Modernization - Cameyo enables Independent Software Providers (ISVs) to deliver their legacy software as a service with zero development. Cameyo also helps them automate the sales process by giving customers instant access to software free trials from the web with no downloads or installation required.

Bring Your Own Azure

 

Cameyo is a built-for-the-cloud virtual application delivery platform, and as such has always worked seamlessly in any environment. Organizations throughout MEA are adopting Azure to enable large-scale remote work today, but also to prepare for the 'new normal' after COVID-19. By extending our advanced features that were previously only available in our fully hosted service to Azure, ASG Africa's customers can now experience the full cost savings, enhanced user experience, and infrastructure reduction benefits of Cameyo while bringing their own existing Azure cloud - or by working with ASG to move to Azure,

Andrew Miller, Co-Founder and CEO of Cameyo.



Beginning today, ASG Africa customers can experience the following benefits of Cameyo:

• Greater Control and Compliance – Simplified compliance for organizations in highly-regulated industries by utilizing Cameyo within their own instance of Azure.

• Cost Savings – With Cameyo advanced provisioning, Azure customers have access to features like elasticity and usage optimization to dynamically spin servers up and down based on demand and automatically move servers into hibernation mode ensuring organizations don't pay for 24/7 servers when they aren't being used.

• Enhanced User Experience – Cameyo's Session Sync technology enables a user's settings and files follow them from session to session, ensuring a seamless user experience. And because Cameyo enables users to experience the full desktop version of their applications directly from the browser, users have nothing new to learn.

• Infrastructure Reduction – Unlike VDI which increases the infrastructure you need to manage, and therefore the cost and complexity, Cameyo's cloud-native platform reduces infrastructure and costs by up to 80% compared to Citrix/VDI.

• Increased Security – By separating applications from the OS and making them available via the browser, Cameyo helps ensure that malware on the user's machine doesn't have access to their application sessions. And Cameyo's RDP Port Shield technology proactively protects customers from RDP vulnerabilities that can lead to brute force attacks and ransomware.

Getting Started

Any organization can get started with Cameyo in minutes by loading the applications they want to publish to their users to the Cameyo platform. Cameyo seamlessly integrates with Office 365, G Suite, Okta, Ping ID and most Single Sign-On (SSO) providers giving organizations the ability to manage authentication, permissions, users, and groups with no additional work. Once published, the organization's users can securely access all of these legacy Windows apps from the browser, enabling them to utilize the apps on any device. Users can start work on one device and finish on another thanks to Cameyo's Session Sync technology that provides data resiliency across sessions.

Pricing and Availability

For organizations throughout MEA, Cameyo is available via ASG Africa immediately. For organizations looking to move to Azure, ASG Africa can get them set up on local instances of Azure depending on location. For organizations in South Africa, ASG Africa will be working with Tarsus on Demand, a world-class Indirect CSP provider, to provide a local version of Azure.
