“I came to know IGEL through Adam Brush in 2014 when he and I sat down at HIMSS with Jeff Kalberg. At that time, Coretek was very heavy into US-based healthcare, building clinical workflows and swapping out legacy PCs for Dell thin clients. Thousands and thousands of Dell Xenith and D10D’s flowed through our Services Teams. While thin clients made it easy, they didn’t eliminate the management complexity entirely. It was difficult to introduce the new features of a Citrix, Microsoft or VMware protocol due to those OEM client versions needing to be integrated into Dell ThinOS. This made upgrades more cumbersome and difficult managing through multiple panes of glass for different devices types. Coretek Signed the Partner Agreement with IGEL in 2014, after we tested their UDC conversion product.  We converted every x86 device we could find, and by 2015 IGEL was Coretek’s only go-to-market in the edge computing space. Once of the core Integration Coretek depended on back then was key integrations into Imprivata OneSign and ProveID Embedded. Most if not all implementations that Coretek was involved in were Imprivata and Citrix, IGEL’s Core Integrations into these ISV Partners was critical and what made the decision easy. Now Seeing IGEL evolve under the leadership of Jed Ayres and Simon Clephan, with additional Core integrations like Lakeside, Teams and Zoom, Nerdio, NVIDIA, LoginVSI, PrinterLogic, RFIdea’s and WVD (Windows Virtual Desktop) that align with our strategic partners for a more perfect union. We here at Coretek are excited to be apart of the IGEL Partner Community and looking forward to driving innovation to our customers and solutions!”

“What we like most about teaming with IGEL is the ability to leverage their knowledge, expertise and relationships they hold across the EUC space. Their alliances with AWS, Citrix, Microsoft and VMware proved to be invaluable in 2020 as the world moved to remote work and hybrid work environments to slow the spread of the global pandemic. Together, we were able to uncover new opportunities for our clients to leverage IGEL OS within these environments, which contributed to our continued growth and success, despite the challenges we all faced together. We have the utmost respect for the IGEL team, and are very excited about the changes they are making through IGEL Velocity to help drive success for us, and our clients.”

~ Mike Strohl, CEO, Entisys360


“IGEL has the right people in place who understand what our clients want. They have the right perspective that allows them to continue to innovate the IGEL OS for new technologies such as Microsoft Windows Virtual Desktop, and allow partnerships with vendors who innovate their hardware such as the recent nComputing ARM based Raspberry Pi announcement and their ongoing integration with LG. Finally they have passion and #BELIEVE in their people, their clients and their partners, which makes them one of the best companies to partner with in the EUC space.”

~ Al Solorzano, Vice President, End User Computing, Entisys360


“It’s no longer about simple thin clients. IGEL has advanced the conversation to what customers critically need — a secure, high-performance, and managed endpoint solution that is adaptable to how clients today are required to embrace a distributed workforce environment post pandemic. The new IGEL Velocity partner program adds value to my business while removing cost. Typical programs such as MDF, rebates, business planning and training are elevated by IGEL to ensure we increase operational efficiencies across sales revenue, engineering and business development. We consider IGEL a core business partner now and in the future.”

~ Paul Kunze, Vice President, IntraSystems

“SVA has already relied on a focused and strategic partnership with IGEL for almost ten years and can look back on a large number of successful projects and satisfied customers. IGEL solutions will continue to occupy an important place in SVA’s end-user computing portfolio and in strategic consulting on the topic of digital workspace. In particular, IGEL’s orientation as a software manufacturer as well as the cooperation with various IGEL Ready Partners – here especially the strategic cooperation with Microsoft (including WVD) – are important parameters for a sustainable positioning in the digital workplace environment. Especially the current Corona situation shows that IGEL has answers to the essential challenges for the provision, connection and secure administration of remote workstations. Thus, together with IGEL, we will continue to design the right solutions for the most diverse customer requirements in the future.”

~ Mike Cobussen, Managing Consultant, T4Change


“With the proliferation of digital workspaces, mobility, and cloud, the traditional moat and castle approach to IT security is fundamentally broken and only made worse by a general neglect around endpoints operating systems.  Often, IT makes significant investments in wrapping cloud and on-premises data centers with security solutions, yet overlook endpoints spread throughout the business.  Endpoints with a large attack surface, which hold the keys to the castle, and which are increasingly being exploited as the path of least resistance. IT must refocus efforts to bolster endpoint security while avoiding complexity and increased operational overhead.  It’s time we stop ignoring the endpoint.  This is where the core capabilities of IGEL OS shine – a simple, smart, and secure approach to revitalizing endpoint security, minimizing risk to the business, while alleviating demand on IT, and maintaining a positive employee experience. At Third Octet, we are extremely proud to be a part of IGEL’s continued success, represent Canada as an Elite partner, and continue to provide our customers – current and future – with the ideal endpoint OS for today’s modern workforce.”

~ Matthew Metelsky, CEO, Third Octet Inc.
