Stoneware’s webNetwork simplifies your life by enabling you to create a Unified Cloud. A unified cloud delivers private data center, public cloud and local device resources through a common webDesktop.
Make End Users More Productive
With webNetwork you can simplify your user’s life by providing a common HTML5 webDesktop. This type of desktop virtualization, accessed through the Unified Cloud, delivers all files, applications and reports through a single user ID and password on any device.
The Unified Cloud makes it easier for IT to deliver services. By employing effective workspace aggregation strategies, the IT team won’t have to stitch together a variety of point products (SSO, Portal, Remote File Access, Security, Remote Access, Reporting, Management) to create a cloud experience. webNetwork leverages your current investment in directory services and existing IT infrastructure.
Decrease Your Costs
webNetwork significantly reduces technology acquisition costs by enabling a BYOD initiative and extending the hardware refresh cycle. webNetwork eliminates the need to implement a costly VDI solution and reduces the need for expensive VPNs. In addition, single sign-on and self-service reduces end-user helpdesk calls.
What You Get
A Unified Cloud for your organization can open up a wide range of potential benefits. Many modern organizations are having to deal with an overload of files, apps, and services delivered through private and public clouds, as well as the ever increasing number of end-user devices that employees bring to work. In the end, it all equates to a lot of added stress for the IT department.
It is, however, possible to use a workspace aggregator to bring these diverse systems together and consistently and securely deliver the content and applications that your employees need. Our solution provides the following benefits.
Simple User Interface
webNetwork supports a variety of interfaces to quickly and easily connect to the Unified Cloud. It can run in the almost any modern browser by using HTML5 and CSS, and we support interfaces such as the webDesktop Universal Profile – the default interface for handling a growing number of mobile devices, as well as a web desktop that works much like a traditional interface, and a portal interface that lets you personalize the entire layout.
The Unified Cloud makes it easy to deliver a wide range of applications through either a private or public cloud. webNetwork was designed to provide the security, access control, and encryption protocols you need to make the process smoother and simpler while maintaining safety and convenience. You can use a number of application types, from public or private web apps based on Apache, SharePoint, PHP, etc. to a variety of Windows apps, client server apps, hosted SaaS, and others.
Our system is based on a unique, two-tier architecture. This makes it possible to move apps and services back into the data center or deliver them to the end users from a server in the DMZ. All of your communications will be encrypted through SSL, and you can also use a number of secondary authentication measures, such as USB keys, secure tokens, and directory attributes.
