100% Cloud without Compromise delivering Workspace as a Service

Workspace as a service is a 100% cloud solution. When you hear 100% cloud, the natural questions you have are:

(1) Is my data going through your cloud?
(2) Do I have to move my applications into your cloud?
(3) Do my user credentials get stored in your cloud?

A control plane architecture splits the data and control planes. In a control plane architecture:

(1) Control signals, including configuration information, policies, etc. flow through the control panel.
(2) Application data and credentials flow through the data channel.

The Workspot solution is 100% Cloud Control Architecture. Control signals flow from control panel in the cloud to the devices. Application data and credentials flows between the devices and the data center. In this architecture, your applications remain where they are today - in your data center. Traffic flows directly between the client on the device and your applications. Since the traffic does not flow through our cloud, we have not introduced any new security concerns. And finally even the credentials flow between the device and your existing authentication mechanisms. No credentials are stored in our cloud. Hence no new security concerns are introduced here.

A 100% cloud control plane architecture enables you to securely leverage the simplicity and speed of a cloud solution.

Workspot is your single solution to securely deliver apps and data to any PC, Mac, iOS, and Android device.   The 100% cloud architecture provides security and simplicity as it K.I.S.S.
