“For customers that use Nutanix infrastructure to support their Citrix virtual desktops, IGEL delivers powerfully simple endpoint security and optimization with unparalleled security,” saidSimon Townsend, IGEL Chief Marketing Officer for EMEA. “It’s the perfect combination for any IT team that wants to lower the total cost of ownership for their EUC estate while future-proofing their endpoint investment.”
Software-Defined Endpoint security and optimization for the Nutanix-Citrix EUC Enterprise
IGEL’s suite of software-defined endpoint security and optimization solutions, which are sold exclusively through the channel, deliver simple, smart and secure management of end user computing devices. The product suite includes the IGEL OS™, which standardizes endpoints and provides an adaptive configuration, embedded security and granular control for IT organizations that want to deliver a trouble-free workspace for their users. Expanding on the IGEL OS is the IGEL Universal Management Suite™ (UMS), a secure endpoint security and optimization solution that enables simplified management of any remote endpoint which may be extended with the IGEL Cloud Gateway™ for the unified management of any Internet-connected IGEL OS-powered endpoint, including branch office, home office and remote devices. For easy delivery, the IGEL OS™ is also offered on the IGEL UD Pocket™, a micro thin client device which provides remote and mobile workers with fast and secure access to cloud services, server-based computing applications and virtual desktops.
Among the customers using IGEL endpoint security and optimization with their Nutanix infrastructure and Citrix XenDesktop is Toppan Vintage. Toppan Vintage, headquartered in New York, is part of the Toppan Printing Group, the world’s largest printing group with approximately $14 billion in annual sales.
“The UMS is the management console we’d always hoped to find but didn’t get with our previous supplier. That’s why we switched to IGEL,” Thomas Mangan, Vice President, Information Technology and Production Design, Toppan Vintage. “I can’t say enough good things about it and, even though our fleet of UD3s isn’t in the thousands, it’s of fundamental benefit. We define a policy and drag and drop this to individual IGEL devices or groups of installed endpoints, with firmware updates simplified too.” Read the press release here.
