Seamless integration

Any remote access deployment is made up of a composition of various elements:

  • Connectivity - getting to the internet
  • Access - getting to the company network
  • Authentication and client security
Each of these components might require some user interaction. Often, there can be overlapping of functionality between components, which cause negative effects on each other and the entire system. cWizard solves both issues by enabling a clean integration of all elements and providing a simple user interface.

Seamless use of available Internet connection. Supports the switch from e.g. a LAN to a WAN or vice-versa.
