When it comes to maintaining a secure and seamless computing experience for students, faculty, and staff in secondary education – regardless of location – there is no simpler solution than IGEL. IGEL helps colleges and universities extend the life of their existing PCs, while bringing new devices under unified management and control. The result is simplified IT operations higher education organizations need to enable an engaged and fulfilling learning experience from anywhere – on campus or off.
- A more immersive and fulfilling student computing experience
- More secure and protected computing assets and operation
- Improved staff and student productivity
- Enhanced connection for centers of learning
- Delivery of customized digital workspaces on demand
For those higher education organizations that need a simplified, more secure endpoint computing solution, IGEL offers a quick and innovative approach. Organizations can shift Windows from endpoints to the datacenter or cloud and then streamline endpoint deployment using a simple drag-and-drop, no-touch device experience on both on-campus and remote home networks. From there, IT staff can easily perform endpoint updates fast and reliably with a “buddy update” process that speeds updates on campus or off. IT can also configure endpoints automatically based on context.
Today, many students perform the bulk of their assigned work from off-campus. IGEL’s technology allows higher education IT support and helpdesk people to securely “shadow” (take over mouse and keyboard) an off-network device for troubleshooting purposes. Ultimately, this enables organizations to deliver simple and efficient remote support to assist widely distributed students and staff at home, or at remote locations without on-site IT staff.
