IGEL Secure Endpoint OS
for Security Now & Next
IGEL’s Preventative Security Model transforms endpoint security through:
Read-Only Operating System
The read-only operating system 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. If the endpoint is IGEL’d, breach investigations due to a lost or stolen device can be immediately concluded.
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.
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
