Allied Electronics & Automation | December 23, 2021
Allied Electronics & Automation and Moxa are partnering to offer Moxa's next generation series of all-in-one security routers, the EDR-G9010 Series. With cybersecurity incidents in operational technology (OT) systems on the rise, network security is a high priority for companies in the industrial sector. Most network requirements in OT environments are not only concerned with security but also with keeping operations running efficiently.
The EDR-G9010 Series is designed with a broad range of certifications addressing most industries, focusing on specific vertical markets, more demanding use cases, and customer applications. The industrial secure router defends against malicious threats with advanced cybersecurity features such as improved VPN functionality and Deep Packet Inspection. Its user-friendly interface and quick settings allow easy configuration, while rugged hardware makes these secure routers ideal for industrial environments. Comprehensive Layer 2 and Layer 3 redundancy mechanisms ensure that networks stay connected.
Simply put, the EDR-G9010 Series is better in every aspect. It is higher performance and higher availability, with more robust security features. Many of these capability and performance enhancements enable new applications and customer use cases in part due to form factor, price, and performance of the EDR-G9010 Series."

One of the biggest strengths of the EDR-G9010 Series is its versatility. Its all-in-one nature combines up to three devices, including a managed switch, firewall and security router, and VPN remote access into one compact footprint. High performance enables new applications and deployment scenarios that were not possible in previous generations of EDRs.

VMware | January 18, 2022
WorkJam, the leading digital workplace for organizations with frontline and hourly employees, announced its alliance with VMware, a leading innovator in enterprise software. The alliance will bring together WorkJam communication, task management, learning, and open shift management tools and VMware Workspace ONE Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) platform. As industry leaders continue to embrace bring-your-own (BYO) and corporate-owned and personally-enabled (COPE) device initiatives, this combination will give businesses the ability to deliver a more consistent and engaging digital employee experience, boost productivity, and reduce costs. The planned interoperability was announced in conjunction with the first day of NRF 2022, the largest annual trade show in retail.
Workspace ONE is an intelligent-driven platform that enables IT to simply and securely deliver any app on any device with integrated access control, management, automation and analytics, and remote support. Using time and attendance data from WorkJam, Workspace ONE customers will be able to selectively restrict access to sensitive corporate content on devices—like inventory management and buy online, pick-up in store (BOPIS) apps—when employees aren't on the clock. While off the clock, workers will still be able to use their BYO or COPE device to access non-work features and personal data, as well as non-sensitive corporate content—like HR apps and shift scheduling tools.
With WorkJam and VMware Workspace ONE, employers of frontline workforces will be able to:
Enable a consistent and compliant employee experience across the organization
Simplify and streamline communications and operational processes organization-wide
Advance workplace culture through incentivized learning in the flow and upskilling
Boost productivity and retention through a unified employee experience
Net a consistent customer experience across the organization
Frontline workers need to access productivity tools via multiple touch points throughout the day, which can cause serious risk for both security and productivity if not handled thoughtfully. That's why WorkJam and VMware are coming together. As businesses continue to navigate change in a time of technological advancement, it's becoming increasingly important for businesses to prioritize clarity, accessibility, and security."
Rich Halbert, Chief Strategy Officer at WorkJam
"Empowered and digitally connected employees can make all the difference for retailers," said Ed Durbin, Director of VMware's Global Retail Industry Group. "BYO and COPE policies enable retailers to redefine the employee experience and maintain a competitive advantage. Together with WorkJam, we are powering the future of digital workspaces to help our customers better deploy BOYD and COPE with the privacy employees demand and the enhanced data security that IT requires. Armed with the necessary tools to make their jobs easier and more productive, employees can transform the retail experience from the inside out."
