Citrix also announced planned Linux support with Citrix uberAgent®, which IGEL plans to support upon availability, enabling comprehensive endpoint monitoring of their devices.

“Citrix is excited to extend the reach of our security and observability solutions to Linux and to partner with IGEL on the integration of our offerings for our joint customers,” said Sridhar Mullapudi, executive vice president and general manager, Citrix, a business unit of Cloud Software Group. “Citrix and IGEL are enabling any enterprise that wants to secure their employees, IT environment and content while delivering a more secure device posture without compromising user experience.”

Through collaborative development and innovation via the IGEL Ready and Citrix Ready™ partner programs, IGEL is delivering support for the following Citrix solutions:

  • Citrix Enterprise Browser. Building on IGEL’s exclusive Preventative Security Model™ which secures endpoints by design to reduce ransomware risk and support zero trust initiatives, the IGEL OS support for Citrix Enterprise Browser helps users stay productive while mitigating insider and external threats. The locally installed browser accelerates a zero trust strategy with dynamic context awareness and ensures simple, secure VPN-less access from anywhere.
  • Citrix Secure Private Access. For organizations that want to keep apps secure and hybrid workforces productive, IGEL has released support for Citrix Secure Private Access. Delivering adaptive access to all IT-sanctioned apps – web, SaaS, and client-server – whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud, Citrix Secure Private Access prevents unauthorized access and eliminates threats from any IGEL OS-powered device. The Citrix Secure Private Access agent for IGEL OS is available now.
  • Citrix uberAgent. To improve user experience, the new Citrix uberAgent monitoring agent will deliver rich metrics for IGEL OS clients. Integrated with Splunk Enterprise, Splunk Cloud, and other similar systems, uberAgent offers a variety of use case dashboards for threat detection and enhanced security. IGEL OS is expected to be among the first Linux OSs to support Citrix uberAgent when available.

“IGEL and Citrix are committed to delivering the collaborative innovations that secure and revolutionize how people work,” said Jim Airdo, senior vice president of strategic alliances, IGEL. “Our longstanding partnership, from the development lab to the field, delivers, time and again, the new capabilities our joint customers need to elevate and secure the end user computing experience. We are pleased to once again deliver industry-first innovations for Citrix users, underscoring the depth of our partnership.”
