IGEL Ready Endpoints: Benefits for Everyone, from Users to IT
The dramatic shift over the past year has not only changed how we work, it’s made it all the more critical to deploy the right endpoint device to meet your mobile workforce’s business needs. Today’s “work from anywhere” world offers more freedom for users, but keeping endpoint devices and virtual desktops safe remains of paramount concern.
Enter: our award-winning IGEL OS software that allows existing laptops, notebooks, and thin clients to be converted into lean, secure, and powerful endpoints. They’re able to be fully managed and controlled by the IT team, without compromising endpoint device management and security across the enterprise.
IGEL OS can run on any compatible x86-64 device. So, how about we go a step further and provide a hardware device tailored to your users’ needs, that harnesses the power of IGEL’s endpoint security and optimization solutions, and delivers a seamless end-user computing experience?
The answer to that question is the IGEL Ready program. We team up with industry-leading endpoint manufacturers to provide plug-and-play devices that can be deployed to satisfy the needs of various use cases and environments. This IGEL Ready hardware puts you in control of your virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) faster, more efficiently, and more reliably than ever before.
So, what is an IGEL Ready Endpoint?
The IGEL Ready program allows hardware partners and other endpoint players to validate their devices to work smoothly with IGEL OS to ensure an optimal user experience. With the testing and verification required to validate IGEL Ready hardware, you can have confidence that comes from knowing that any new device with the “IGEL Ready” designation, will integrate smoothly into your existing IGEL infrastructure. Plus it will offer productive, fulfilling user experiences.
What’s more? Organizations deploying these IGEL Ready endpoint devices will benefit from the complete IGEL ecosystem of over 100 IGEL Ready partners, whose technologies are fully compatible and ready to use and integrate with any device powered by IGEL OS.
