San Francisco, November 7, 2018 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint security and optimization software for the secure enterprise, today announced record sales in the U.S. federal market including significant wins during the federal fiscal year ending September 30, 2018 with the Department of the Navy, Federal Enforcement Agency, Federal Financial Agencies and more. As a result, IGEL U.S. government sales have increased approximately 400%, year over year, marked by accelerating adoption of IGEL’s Universal Desktop Converter 3 (UDC3) and IGEL’s Universal Management Suite (UMS) software for the conversion and management of existing endpoint hardware.
“Across all branches of the U.S. government, secure endpoint security and optimization has become a vital priority. Yet, the high cost of a desktop refresh can be an obstacle to adopting more advanced endpoint technology such as Windows 10,” said Manoj Thomas, Federal Sales Manager, IGEL Technology. “IGEL UDC3 and UMS software helps federal agencies overcome this challenge by transforming existing hardware into secure and easy to manage endpoints – saving the government millions. This has fueled a rapid growth trajectory for IGEL’s federal sales.”
Powerful, Simple Endpoint Control for Existing Hardware
IGEL UMS software is hardware agnostic and able to manage any converted x86 device, regardless of manufacturer. When used with IGEL UDC3 software, the IGEL UMS enables federal agencies to centralize endpoint device management with granular backend control without the high cost of a hardware refresh. Many federal agencies have adopted the IGEL UMS and UDC3 software to convert existing endpoints or aging computer hardware into an IGEL-managed device for significant management simplicity and cost savings.
“IGEL has revolutionized the way federal agencies can transform their end user computing estates,” said Steven H. Weiss, President & COO of IGEL Platinum Partner, Accelera Solutions. “Their innovative software enables government enterprises to quickly and easily reengage older hardware, with a secure and efficient operating system and simplified management that can save exponentially on helpdesk and IT resources. It’s the ideal end user computing solution for federal environments.”
Raising the Bar for Endpoint Security
Equally as important as lowering endpoint costs to federal agencies is security. The IGEL OS, enabled by its UDC3 and UMS software, delivers advanced endpoint security capabilities for the reliable and resilient end user computing demanded by the federal market. Offering embedded security, the IGEL OS is virtually impossible to manipulate and extremely resistant to viruses and other malware. This embedded security includes automatic support for critical technologies such as two-factor authentication and smart card readers.
IGEL Partners with 90meter for Digital Identity Assurance
Among the smart card reader support offered is integration with PIV Minidriver and CAC Smart Card Manager-90 from 90meter. Designed to enable two factor authentication, maximize security and deliver performance for secure end user computing. The 90meter smartcard manager (SCM) software is designed for fast, secure digital identity assurance. 90meter SCM software complies with all applicable standards, including, PIV, FIPS 201, GSCIS, US DoD CAC Middleware Requirements GlobalPlatform, PKCS 7-12, 2048-bit RSA, and Section 508.
“We are pleased to be partnering with IGEL in the delivery of secure end user computing environments for the federal and DoD market,” said Roy Newton, President, 90meter. “Together, we are helping government agencies meet increasing demands for higher user productivity and security by enabling fast and secure user authentication, single sign-on and encrypted communication with the efficiency of IGEL OS-managed devices.”
