IGEL Showcases Citrix Ready Solutions at Citrix Synergy 2017

Simple, Smart and Secure Unified Endpoint security and optimization Solutions Make It Easier for Channel Partners to Deploy Citrix® VDI, Desktop-as-a-Service (DaaS) and Hosted Desktop Solutions

CITRIX SYNERGY, BOOTH #207, ORLANDO, Fla., May 23, 2017 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint security and optimization software for the secure enterprise, today announced that it is featuring its powerful unified endpoint security and optimization software, IGEL OS™-powered endpoints, zero clients and all-in-one endpoints solutions in Booth #207 during Citrix Synergy 2017, taking place this week in Orlando, Fla.

“Through our alliance with Citrix, IGEL is working to develop new and innovative ways in which our customers can leverage our industry-leading software solutions to streamline the deployment of Citrix VDI, DaaS and hosted desktop solutions,” said Jed Ayres, President and CEO, IGEL North America. “We are proud to be a Platinum level sponsor for Citrix Synergy 2017, delighted to have been named Citrix Ready Partner of the Month for May 2017, and excited to have the opportunity to connect with our customers and demonstrate ways in which they can leverage IGEL within their Citrix environments to drive the productivity and profitability of their businesses.”

Among IGEL’s Citrix Ready® solutions being demonstrated during Citrix Synergy 2017 are the IGEL Universal Management Suite™ (UMS), the IGEL Universal Desktop Converter™ (UDC), the recently introduced IGEL Cloud Gateway™ (ICG) and IGEL UD Pocket™ micro client, winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in 2017 American Business Awards; and, its line-up of IGEL OS™-powered Universal Desktop™ (UD) thin and IZ Series™ zero clients and all-in-one endpoint solutions.

IGEL UDC and IGEL UD Pocket Drive Down Costs for Citrix Deployments

IGEL is committed to helping IT organizations operating Citrix-based virtualized infrastructure environments increase efficiencies, reduce costs, and enhance the security of their deployments. Two examples of this are the IGEL UDC and IGEL UD Pocket.

Designed to provide businesses of all sizes with a lower-cost alternative to traditional desktop hardware, the IGEL UDC can dramatically reduce desktop replacement costs, eliminating the need to invest in new hardware to support Citrix virtualized infrastructures. Converting PCs, laptops and endpoints from other manufacturers into IGEL OS-powered endpoints also enables IT organizations to securely administer all of their endpoint devices from a centralized management console.

Built to provide on-demand access to virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) environments, the IGEL UD Pocket offers IT organizations with remote or mobile workforces a flexible and cost-effective out-of-the-box micro endpoint solution that is designed to improve the security of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) initiatives. The IGEL UD Pocket enables simple and secure access to the user’s IGEL OS-powered desktop, via a USB-bootable device, without overwriting the local operating system (OS).

“Through their Citrix Ready verified scalable and secure endpoint security and optimization solutions, IGEL provides a quality experience for end-users while enhancing the manageability of Citrix-based desktop computing environments,” said Sid Rabindran, Director at Citrix Ready. “We are pleased to have them as a valued member of the Citrix Ready Program.”

Kansas Enterprise Makes VDI Fun Again with IGEL and Citrix

IGEL’s growing line-up of simple, smart and secure unified endpoint security and optimization solutions are currently being used to power Citrix VDI, DaaS and Hosted Desktop solutions for enterprises around the globe; and the Kansas Development Finance Authority (KDFA) is one of the most recent customers to leverage IGEL within its Citrix-based end-user computing environment.

“We chose IGEL after our previous endpoint solution provider was unable to offer timely product updates to support the latest features available from Citrix and developers of other software solutions used by our team,” said Jeff Kater, KDFA’s Director of Information Technology. “After testing a number of endpoint solutions, it was the IGEL UMS that sealed the deal for us. In selecting the IGEL Universal Desktop endpoints and UMS software, we are now able to immediately take advantage of the latest releases and enhancements from Citrix and other software providers due to IGEL’s timely product updates. They’ve put the power back in our hands in terms of how and when we want to roll-out our endpoint updates, and VDI has become fun again for both our IT staff and our end users.”

During Citrix Synergy 2017, IGEL will be hosting the IGEL Customer Advisory Council (CAC), the IGEL Marketing Advisory Council (MAC), the IGEL Partner Advisory Council (PAC), and quarterly business reviews with its key partners. Additionally, IGEL will be distributing its new Demo Kit, sponsored by Intel and valued at more than $5,000 to 17 IGEL Platinum Partners. Each demo kit includes two i7 Intel NUCs, one i7 Intel NUC Skull Canyon, a Wi-Fi Router/Extender, Network Switch, and IGEL UD6. The IGEL and Intel Demo Kit also includes an IGEL UDC (valued at $149), an IGEL UD Pocket (valued at $169) and IGEL UMS, the industry’s most powerful endpoint security and optimization solution.
