HENNGE One Supports Integration with NEOJAPAN’s Groupware “desknet’s NEO” (package version) - Enabling Secure Access to On-premise Systems 2023.02.28

HENNGE K.K. (headquarters: Shibuya, Tokyo, Representative Director, Chief Executive Officer: Kazuhiro Ogura, “HENNGE”) is pleased to announce that HENNGE Connect, a feature of the SaaS authentication infrastructure (IDaaS) “HENNGE One” which enables secure access to internal on-premise systems from outside the company, is now compatible with the groupware “desknet’s NEO” provided by NEOJAPAN Inc.

In recent years, the increasing demand for DX among enterprises has led to the increased adoption of cloud services for more flexible work styles and improved productivity. On the other hand, within the groupware area, many companies and local governments have continued to promote the use of on-premise systems due to network security restrictions and the complexity of business operations, which makes it hard to migrate to the cloud.
In most cases, such companies and local governments have utilized VPNs for remote work. Recently, however, issues, such as the increase in cyber-attacks targeting VPN devices and the growing demand for remote work, have put pressure on networks, and require for a secure method, that could replace VPN, to access the company’s LAN.

By linking HENNGE Connect and desknet's NEO, companies utilizing HENNGE One will be able to access desknet's NEO on their corporate LAN simply by logging into HENNGE One without a VPN connection. This allows users to utilize desknet’s NEO safely while preventing security risks.

This collaboration was made possible through NEOJAPAN’s participation in the “HENNGE One Product Alliance Program”, operated by HENNGE, based on mutual verification.

HENNGE will continue to increase the number of solutions that work with HENNGE Connect and support the improvement of corporate productivity through the use of ICT.
