LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill. and SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 22, 2021 – LG Business Solutions USA has been named an IGEL Ready technology partner for IGEL, a leading provider of next-generation edge operating system technologies for cloud workspaces. As part of the partnership, LG has joined this comprehensive technology partner certification program, which opens up IGEL’s core enterprise software for tech companies like LG to integrate and validate its products. As a result of LG’s participation in the IGEL Ready program, this spring many of LG’s All-in-One thin clients will be preloaded with IGEL OS for out-of-the box use by mutual customers.
According to IGEL CEO Jed Ayres, this will help drive business growth and flexible access to enterprise applications for mutual customers of LG and IGEL. “The future of enterprise computing is in the cloud. The IGEL Ready program makes it easy for any company to deploy their applications to virtual desktops and cloud workspaces, while also enabling world-class customer service,” said Ayres. “By joining our growing network of IGEL Ready partners, LG is taking a strong leadership position for hardware vendors in the new validation movement within the end user computing industry.”
Now more than ever, providing customers and their employees with reliable, frictionless access to tools, applications, and services is critical for businesses continuity and growth, Ayers explained. The IGEL Ready program ensures that partner applications are validated and shared, and that their customers have access to updated and secure software. This new ecosystem enables customers to consider compatible devices and partner applications that address a myriad of end-to-end cloud workspaces solutions across a range of categories in the customer-facing IGEL Ready Showcase.
The broad feature set of IGEL OS supports remote access and reliable multi-protocol connectivity to VDI environments and cloud workspaces including support for Citrix, VMware and Microsoft via LG Electronics family of All-in-One thin client solutions. Through the IGEL Universal Management Suite (UMS) software, users of LG’s endpoint cloud displays will also benefit from a robust and secure standardized endpoint security and optimization system that enables the cost-effective management of any terminal device running the Linux-based IGEL OS.
“IGEL’s software-defined endpoint management solutions are changing the way enterprises approach end-user computing,” said Clark Brown, vice president, LG Business Solutions USA. “Partnering with IGEL supports our rapidly expanding enterprise business, and we look forward to teaming with our channel partners to provide their end-user customers with an innovative, secure and high-performing endpoint computing experience.”
