IGEL OS is Linux-based endpoint operating system for simple, smart, and secure endpoint control and optimization. IGEL OS turns any compatible x86 device into a secure IGEL-managed endpoint. The major function includes the following
Hardware-agnostic – runs on any compatible x86 64 bits device.
Built-in security – built on highly secure Linux, multi-factor authentication, smart cards, trusted execution.
Commitment to lockstep firmware support for Citrix, VMware, Microsoft 4x per year
Support for a vast array of partner technology interfaces and protocols (100+ strong and counting)
Universal Management Suite (UMS)
UMS and its graphical user interface make it easy for a non-expert to control and manage from just a few to tens of thousands of IGEL software-defined endpoints with minimal training.
In addition to making end user computing management massively scalable yet easy, UMS features simple cloud-based endpoint software licensing where licenses can roam between any compatible x86 devices, and also Includes
Workspace Edition includes a high availability option to help ensure continual operation of the Universal Management Suite even if the primary server should become unavailable for any reason. This can prove to be extremely beneficial in larger configurations of thousands or even tens of thousands of IGEL software-defined endpoints.
Workspace Edition also includes a REST API to allow for easy integration of IGEL UMS with existing management, reporting, and trouble ticketing systems. Often a requirement in many enterprises, the Workspace Edition REST API makes it easy for organizations to exchange information between their IGEL-powered end user computing environment and other software systems.
