“The market is understandably disappointed by the withdrawal of this reliable and value rich product” said Yong Thye Lin, Chief Executive Officer of Celestix. “As a trusted OEM partner of Microsoft we have the ability to continue building UAG into our award winning WSA appliance range until 2023. We will also continue to provide our comprehensive technical support services, ensuring that our customers have many more years’ service for UAG”.
Organizations of all sizes rely on UAG 2010 to deliver comprehensive, secure remote access to corporate resources for employees, partners and vendors on managed and unmanaged PCs and mobile devices.
