The secure printing solution recognized as "Best Overall Healthcare CyberSecurity Solution"

MedTech_Breakthrough_Awards_2018_AtlanticnetSan Francisco, June 6, 2018 – IGEL, a world leader in endpoint security and optimization software for the secure enterprise, today announced that MedTech Breakthrough, an independent organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global health and medical technology market today, has selected IGEL as the 2018 winner of the “Best Overall Healthcare CyberSecurity Solution.” IGEL is being recognized by MedTech Breakthrough for bringing to market a bundled secure printing solution with Citrix and ThinPrint. This is the second year in a row that IGEL has been recognized with a MedTech Breakthrough award.

“Enterprise customers, faced with HIPAA, PCI and the newly established GDPR regulations, are seeking print solutions that satisfy these government-mandated regulations for protecting end users, and proprietary organizational data,” said Simon Clephan, Vice President of Business Development and Strategic Alliances, IGEL. “They also want a first-class desktop and application experience for users. We are pleased to be teaming with Citrix and ThinPrint to provide our mutual customers with aunified, secure and contextual print experience for all enterprise users.”

As part of the bundled solution, IGEL, Citrix and ThinPrint work in perfect symbiosis to eliminate security hazards and productivity stumbling blocks commonly associated with enterprise printing:

  • IGEL revolutionizes both endpoint security and management with simple, drag-and-drop policies so IT can ensure firmware is up-to-date and end-users are productive. IGEL OS combined with IGEL’s Universal Management Suite™ (UMS) are optimized for Citrix, and integrated with ThinPrint to provide automated backend control for IT, while delivering a secure and trouble-free environment for users.
  • Citrix XenDesktop provides a complete virtual application and desktop solution that meets all user and administrator needs from a single, easy-to-deploy platform. It boosts productivity by providing employees the freedom to work from anywhere while cutting IT costs. Citrix XenDesktop can deliver Windows, web, and SaaS applications or full virtual desktops to workers on any device, anywhere.
  • ThinPrint is the fastest and most secure print management solution available. It provides a significant increase in the efficiency, security and flexibility in all environments including those based on Citrix technology.

“ThinPrint’s unique ability to deliver the most productive and secure print management including high availability, follow-me and mobile printing is the perfect addition to the combined IGEL, Citrix and ThinPrint solution,” said Henning Volkmer, ThinPrint, Inc. CEO. “It provides innovative  IT organizations with plug-and-play convenience that comes from having both the ThinPrint client and Citrix Receiver pre-installed on all IGEL OS-powered endpoints.”
