Considering a Desktop Virtualization Projectin Government & Non Profit
Spending less time on IT means spending more time making an impact. Without VDI in government you may be experiencing:
HIGHER COSTS WITH ADMINISTERING REMOTE DESKTOPS
Are onsite maintenance demands consuming too many resources?
Are your networks safe from malware and ransomware attacks? Can you consistently meet mandated security requirements and keep each department running?
INABILITY TO SCALE
Can you administer desktops to additional offices without additional resources?
LOW PERFORMANCE & LOW AVAILABILITY
Can users consistently access the network? Are users spending more time waiting to log-in than helping constituents?
Why consider desktop virtualization in government?
Desktop virtualization in government allows IT to centrally manage all your agency’s endpoints while lowering IT costs and complexity.
VDI in government empowers better IT for better government business. IGEL’s endpoint management system gives you:
Centralized, remote management can save up to 70% in IT administration costs. A “plug and go” rollout only takes minutes, making remote management as easy for 1,000 devices as for 10.
Securely access all data, including a secure login for government employees who need to move from work station to work station.
Assist task-worker employees with issues securely through Secure Shadowing with Audit Log for accountability.
IT sets user-dependent configurations in profiles so different staff can securely use the same device.
An efficient protocol communicates over the connection and eliminates IT bottleneck so users spend 100% of their time advancing government initiatives.
Don’t settle for a partial solution in desktop virtualization.
To get the most out of VDI in government, your endpoint management solution needs to address all components.
Remote Display Protocol
Virtualization should enhance your existing infrastructure. Full and open support of Citrix HDX, VMware Blast Extreme, Teradici PCoIP, Microsoft Remote FX, as well as other protocols optimizes your existing environment. Only IGEL supports multiple versions of the Citrix Receiver in a single box.
Ease of Use
Remote endpoint management needs to give users a familiar frontend workspace matched with powerful backend controls.
Fully embedded support for single sign-on solutions, smart card readers, digital recording, video playback, secure shadowing and more.
Remote management should be as easy for 10,000 devices as for 10.
Secure by Design
Read-only file system ensures that the file system has not been compromised and that the system will securely operate as intended. Every boot up is a secure boot up.
With desktop virtualization in government, a partial solution doesn’t work.
Most government and nonprofit organizations have a patchwork of devices, applications and operating systems. Unless you can find a way to standardize all your endpoints, they won’t communicate together or be able to be remotely managed. It’s only by integrating a single, comprehensive solution for your endpoint management that you’ll get the benefits from virtualization.
Getting more mileage out of your existing hardware and expand your impact without affecting your budget. The Universal Desktop Converter, UDC, lets you standardize all thin clients and x86 devices, regardless of manufacturer or operating system. Now you can easily manage all remote devices on a single, powerful framework.
Purpose-built for enterprise, IGEL’s endpoint management system brings every endpoint under your control.
