You migrated to
Windows 10

But does endpoint management need to be this difficult?

Windows as a Service

A nice idea... BUT ...

Windows Update Candence

Every 6 months a new Windows 10 version is released. Whilst each new version brings features and improvements, deploying a new version of Windows every 6 months is a challenge for most enterprise IT departments let alone the impact on the user.

Patch Tuesdays

Whilst Patching is boring and can be time consuming, it is still hugely important when it comes to endpoint security. Trying to patch more than just Microsoft applications and ensure that remote machines have been patched is not an easy task. Moving Windows into the datacenter and repurposing your existing endpoints means you can patch the desktops in the datacenter with ease and not have to worry about known vulnerabilities, large updates or application compatibility on the endpoint.

Supported Versions

The "goal post" has moved a few times on this subject, but for now, Spring releases of Windows 10 (aka 1903) have 18 months support, whereas the "fall" releases (aka 1809) have 30 months. Whilst this gives most organisations time to kick off the next wave of updates, for some 30 months is still not long enough.

"We're going to need a bigger boat"

Each version of Windows 10 seems to "raise the bar" when it comes to the minimum hardware specification. The latest version of Windows 1903 now requires at least 25GB of disk space just to download the latest update. Coupled with the size of the download, your hardware and your network pipe might just need continous upgrades.

Lord of the rings

With constant updates, continued patching and shorter support timescales the need to operationalize your Windows 10 deployment is required. Creating "deployment rings" helps you move through testing new versions of Windows 10, through to rolling out updates to different groups of users. Multiple deployment rings utilise multiple versions of Windows meaning your Windows estate is now more hetrogenous than ever.

Back to the future

Sometimes, things go wrong. Recent updates to Windows 10 including 1903, 1809 and 1803 all made the press thanks to issues with various applications and 3rd party services and tools. Each version of Windows when released needs to be tested - at least to make sure that your AV runs correctly on the latest version. More updates = more testing...and you may not just have time for that anymore?

A better way

Deliver Windows without the worry of endpoint management

Virtualize your Windows 10 desktops

Desktop Virtualization is no longer just for niche use cases. Deskop virtualization offers better performance and is cheaper and easier to impliment than ever before.
Whether you choose Citrix, VMware, Amazon, Microsoft, or any other solution provider, by virtualizing Windows desktops, you can deploy, manage and secure Windows 10 from either an on-prem datacenter, the cloud or both. Easier to secure, easier to manage, cheaper to maintain.

Repurpose your endpoint with IGEL

With your focus on delivering the best Windows experience from the datacenter, you don’t want to worry about securing and managing the endpoint anymore. Instead of migrating your existing endpoints to Windows 10 save time and money repurposing existing x86 hardware with the Simple, Smart and Secure IGEL OS.

Enjoy simplified endpoint management

Forget and remove the pain of managing endpoints and spend more time on managing what’s important.
