The Internet of Things (IoT) is fast becoming a new challenge for today’s IT organizations. In fact, more than 20 billion IoT devices will be connected to the Internet by 2020. How will we harness the power of these devices to drive digital transformation? With IGEL of course.
Today, IGEL has released support for Windows 10 IoT Enterprise with our latest upgrade to the IGEL Universal Desktop™-series UD5 and UD6 thin clients with management by the IGEL Universal Management Suite™ (UMS). This powerful endpoint management software makes it possible for IT organizations – from healthcare to manufacturing and beyond – to simplify the management of their IoT-connected devices.
Using our IGEL UD5 and IGEL UD6, users can securely communicate between their Windows 10 IoT Enterprise-powered IGEL desktops and other IoT devices – delivering new levels of IoT security and control with management simplicity. This is a critical step in the advancement of the enterprise’s use of IoT.
Analysts agree. Mark Bowker, Senior Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group says, “The increasing risk of outside threats and ransomware attacks has made it imperative that businesses secure their endpoints and users. With industries such as healthcare and manufacturing space, looking to integrate IoT devices for improved business insight, concerns have become intensified around cybersecurity risk. IGEL, with its secure endpoint management solutions and support for Window 10 IoT Enterprise is making it easier for enterprises to provide their employees with a robust end-user computing experience, while at the same time protecting access to their corporate assets.”
That’s not all. The IGEL UD5 and UD6 clients are future proof. They include a software license that provides access to regular and frequent firmware updates, enabling IT organizations to preserve their hardware investment while taking advantage of new features and functionality that become available.
Add to that IGEL’s pre-configured support for industry-leading virtualization protocols – from Citrix HDX to Microsoft RDP/Remote FX and VMware Horizon – and you’ll see that we’re delivering flexibility and control like never before.
