Endpoint Security
Now & Next

IGEL Secure Endpoint OS for Security Now & Next - Endpoint Security

IGEL Preventative Security Model™ eliminates the endpoint vulnerabilities targeted by bad actors

Endpoint security is costly, complicated, and frequently ineffective. But as cloud-first initiatives remove application workloads from the endpoint and into SaaS, DaaS and VDI environments, there is an opportunity for an endpoint re-think.  

IGEL OS on the endpoint transforms cybersecurity by removing the attack vectors that are frequently exploited by bad actors. A secure Linux operating system, IGEL OS delivers everything the endpoint needs for a great cloud-first user experience.

Utilized by many of the world’s leading healthcare, finance, manufacturing, retail and government organizations, IGEL OS supports Zero Trust approaches to security and partners with leading Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) vendors to compliment and re-enforce those solutions 

IGEL’s Preventative Security Model transforms endpoint security through:

Read-Only Operating System - Zero Trust Security

Read-Only Operating System

The secure OS  is read-only which prevents would-be-attackers from compromising or infecting the optimized IGEL OS with malware. Attacks that utilize phishing or similar techniques luring a user to click a download are not able to commit changes to the disk. At every reboot the OS undergoes several integrity checks to ensure that at reboot the OS is in a known good state  

No Local Data Storage

Many breach investigations take place because data has or might have been downloaded to an endpoint, or a connected drive by the user. This could be in the form of a downloaded file, screen shots or cached files. IGEL OS does not permit users to store data locally and can block any external drive that may create a pathway for exfiltration. With IGEL OS on the endpoint, breach investigations due to a lost or stolen device can be immediately concluded. 

No Local Data Storage - Secure OS
Trusted Application Platform - Endpoint Security

Trusted Application Platform

Each stage of the IGEL OS boot process is checked through a cryptographic signature of the next, starting with a UEFI secure boot tied to the hardware. This chain ensures the integrity of the endpoint OS and enables a fast recovery from attempted cyber-attacks 

Authentication, SSO and SASE

IGEL partners with the leading authentication vendors including Citrix, Imprivata Microsoft, Okta, Ping Identity and VMware to integrate with broader standards. IGEL OS native applications for these solutions can be accessed from the IGEL App Portal and securely provisioned to every endpoint from the IGEL Universal Management Suite. The IGEL Preventative Security Model in combination with industry partnerships helps organizations meet more than 60% of the US Government Zero Trust Architecture Requirements supporting key elements of the user, device, application and workload, network and environment, and visibility and analytics Zero Trust pillars. 

Authentication, SSO and SASE - Zero Trust Security
Modular Design - Secure OS

Modular Design

At just 2GB, IGEL OS is a much smaller attack surface than a traditional endpoint OS. IGEL OS 12 only contains what the user needs to accomplish their tasks. Additional functionality such as partner integrations with Citrix and VMware, the above security vendors and more, can be downloaded from the IGEL App Portal and centrally provisioned through the IGEL Universal Management Suite 

The Secure Endpoint Strategy for Now & Next

As enterprise workloads increasingly shift away from being run at the endpoint to either hosted environments such as virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI), desktop as a service (DaaS), or pure cloud software as a service (SaaS) applications, organizations have a once in a generation opportunity to re-think their endpoint strategy, and in particular, a better approach to endpoint security.
