IGEL OS is a Linux-based OS that runs on any compatible x86-64 device, verified and supported on hardware from vendors such as HP, Lenovo, LG, OnLogic, Elo Touch, Dynabook, and many more. It is easy to install and is significantly smaller than other endpoint OSs, as well as being read-only, so it offers less attack surface for malware. Its award winning management platform enables one IT administrator to easily manage tens of thousands of devices. IGEL supports more than 17 virtualization protocols including Citrix, VMware, Microsoft AVD and Windows 365, and Amazon WorkSpaces.
