Avanite Ltd was founded in July 2015 with an initial goal to being the best IT consultancy company. Whilst working on a large Ministry of Defense project they were faced with the issue of managing internet data. Recent changes in the operating system have meant that simply storing this data is proving expensive and leads to a terrible user experience. In addition to this recent security breaches have emphasised the need for something to address these issues. Speaking to vendors such as Microsoft and scouring the internet for a solution it became apparent that there was nothing to completely address the solution, so Avanite employed a team of developers to design and develop a software solution known today as WebCache Manager.
Having now outgrown the offices in Wigan Avanite were looking at a new home which would allow them to develop further, and allow for growth of the company without having another change of address. The Base in Warrington ticked all the boxes. As well as the modern serviced offices Avanite were impressed with the sense of community with a great opportunity to network, and onsite business development people able to assist where needed. So, with paperwork rapidly put in place Avanite moved into two of the offices.
This has allowed the business to move to the next level and become a true software company. Within the first month they had sold into new markets in Sweden and are now receiving global interest in their technologies. Their product has developed from a simple command line utility to a full enterprise ready software solution which is unique in its ability to manage web data according to the business needs. Some of the benefits are highlighted in a recent case study;
- 30% quicker user logon / logoff times
- Profile sizes reduced by over 50%
- Number of cookies reduced from 50,000 to 1,000
- Reclaimed 100GB of SAN storage
- Number of support calls concerning profile and IE issues reduced by 70%
Avanite have recently returned from sponsoring Citrix Synergy in Orlando where they were exhibiting with companies such as Microsoft, HP and Dell. Immediately there was a lot of interest from the 5000 delegates that attended the event, many of which were aware they had a problem, but were not sure of the details around it. Many people were surprised to hear that many websites can deliver 100s of cookies to their computer, many of them not from the website they are browsing but from other websites which have links embedded in the page. Others were surprised to see that information such as usernames and passwords were being stored in plain text within the webcache database. WebCache Manager is unique in being able to address all these issues – removing all data that is not needed, including malicious and tracking cookies, and controlling what history is saved or deleted.
