An Innovator in Aviation Technology
Laminaar Infotech is an innovator in the aviation industry, Laminaar designs and develops application software solutions for airlines, cargo operators, business aviation companies, airports, MROs, and defense and aviation training facilities. Laminaar products are available as a suite of services covering the entire spectrum of operations or as a stand-alone sub-system addressing a single functional area.
The post-pandemic era ushered in a new era of work, marked by the urgent need for remote accessibility. For Laminaar, a company with a growing multi-cloud hybrid environment encompassing AWS, Azure, and data centers, this transition posed challenges and opportunities. The primary driver for this shift was the desire to reduce costs and improve productivity. However, they faced a significant hurdle: a substantial group of users struggled with remote access to their Windows desktops. Traditional methods simply couldn't meet their evolving needs.
Laminaar recognized the necessity of a modern access management platform that would seamlessly integrate across their multi-cloud ecosystem. The goal was to break free from the limitations of traditional VPNs and embrace identity-centric access controls. They sought a solution to empower users to access their Windows desktops directly from their web browsers, streamlining the remote work experience.
Selva shared, “Security was paramount in this endeavor. We needed a solution that could provide remote access and ensure data protection”. This added layer of security made it easier to extend access to support functions, ensuring that sensitive information remained safeguarded.
