IGEL and Citrix have enjoyed a strong technical and marketing alliance within end-user computing for decades. The latest evidence of this is IGEL integrating the Citrix Gateway plugin into the IGEL OS for direct access to Citrix Endpoint Analysis.
This integration in IGEL OS is unique and supports our joint customers with easy, direct access so they can run device checks centrally from the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) management console without requiring any further plugin permission or installation.
Granular Control Enables Direct Access to Analyze, Check Device Posture
The integration of Citrix Gateway into IGEL OS grants the IT administrator access to Citrix Endpoint Analysis to run a health check on the posture of a targeted device from the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS).
Endpoint Analysis (EPA) is a process that scans a user’s device and detects information, such as the presence and version level of operating system updates, antivirus software, firewall, and web browser software. Endpoint Analysis allows the IT admin to determine if a user’s device meets the organization’s requirements before it connects to their network. IT can check files, processes, and registry entries on the user device during the user session to ensure the device continues to meet the requirements.
With this integration, IGEL UMS administrators accessing Citrix resources can perform EPA checks for file, process, device, and mount point before authentication. Citrix and IGEL are committed to supporting our joint customers, which includes close collaboration with product teams to plan, integrate, test, and validate customer requests above and beyond the required functionality and criteria to achieve Citrix Ready approvals.
Citrix Endpoint Analysis is integrated in IGEL OS 11.08.290 along with Citrix Workspace app 2302 effective March 23, 2023.
As a longstanding Citrix Ready partner, IGEL stays in lockstep with the latest versions of Citrix Workspace, Citrix Cloud services, and the Citrix Workspace app and is validated as Citrix Ready Endpoint Premium and Citrix Ready for Citrix DaaS.
